“brunch and stop over”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Very nice place ....a little over priced compared to other sofitel hotels we have stayed in asia
Though there are very few places in bahrain that provide a clean beach location
The brunch was good and my kids loved spending the remainder of the day in the pool

I stayed one night with the family at the Sofitel Hotel, Bahrain and it is one of the best ever seen in Bahrain. We have enjoyed all day and night in the hotel, spa, gym, food and sea. We do not need to go out. I love to come back to the hotel. The bed is unbelievable you just want to relax and sleep. I hope they remain the same high quality service

We were very pleased with this hotel. The room was large and comfortable and the bed was heavenly. We were upgraded to an ocean side king with a huge balcony on the third floor. All of the rooms at the hotel have an ocean view though so you can't really go wrong. The pool area was excellent and the beach was clean. An attendant provided chairs on the beach with super soft cushions at no extra cost. The wait staff brought drinks and food and were very attentive. Skip the cocktails and get beer or wine though. Prices are expensive and they are very watered down.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing our hotel for your recent stay in Bahrain and for taking the time to post a review of your stay at Sofitel Bahrain to Trip Advisor.

I am delighted to hear that you found our rooms according to your tastes and especially pleased to hear that you also found our award winning “MyBed” concept beds to be “heavenly”.

I’m concerned that you were not satisfied with our cocktails and will investigate this matter immediately; with regards to your comments about the cost of cocktails within our venues, in all of our venues our prices are dictated by the specifications and standards of quality and service that we aspire to, sometimes the need for a higher quality of ingredients forces us to slightly raise the price for the final product. I do hope this issue will not deter you from visiting again in the future and look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel and particularly our restaurants and spa. I assure you that I will investigate the issue above stated with regards to our cocktails and look forward to providing you an improved level of quality upon your next visit to our hotel.

Despite this I am very pleased to read that you were impressed with our view of the Arabian Gulf and am glad that you enjoyed our pool and beach. I am also delighted to hear that our La Plage Beach Club Ambassadors took good care of you and have already shared your review with them accordingly.

I hope you will visit us again soon and look forward to welcoming you back to Sofitel Bahrain in the future.

We stayed at this hotel for new years 2013 and it was such a pleasant trip. The rooms were cozy and overlooked the pool/beach. Service is very good and the breakfast is so delicious and diverse. I would definetly recommend this hotel for a short getaway.

Beautifully designed hotel along a large gorgeous beach. Rooms were very nice with a large balcony, bathtub and comfortable bed. The hotel is a bit far from the action but is a peaceful, and romantic getaway. Highly recommend it!

Live in dubai currently but decided to get away for the weekend. I'd heard good thing about the brunch here and as it is out of Manama thought it would be a little quieter. Must admit the hotel has loved up too it's reputation. The lobby is beautiful, especially if your arrive in the evening, with the hanging lanterns and the view out over the pool and out tot the beach.

We stayed in a club room on the fifth floor, great room, huge comfy bed and as all the rooms over look the pool and beach, you gt a great view from the balcony. We arrived late so decided to order a couple of drinks on room service - glass of red and procesco - whilst like most other place I just expect them to turn up with the two glasses- instead the waiter arrived with a fresh bottle of proseco in an ice bucket and a bottle of red - poured the glasses in our room and left. This set the tone for the weekend- really fantastic service and outstanding food. We had brunch too - amazing selection of deserts, of the quality you'd expect of a French chain, the rest of the food was equally as good - fantastic quality and huge range.

A truly fantastic hotel, that I would recommend to anone spending time in Bahrain
