Stayed in this Hotel all last week while working in Bahrain. Don't let the name put you off this is not like your average Novotel. It is built like an old fashioned Fort and is only 3 stories high. All the rooms surround a huge pool and Jacuzzi area that is the heart of the Hotel complex. The rooms are spacious and clean with free WiFi. The food was all very good and varied.
The Hotel sits a bit on its own away from the main city, however this means it has its own private beach as well as the wonderful pool (with swim up bar).
A taxi ride into town is only 3BD, or you could walk, as we did on a couple of occasions.
I would much rather stay in this friendly low level Hotel than many of the Marble multi story branded hotels that we visited while there!!

This Novotel is different than the hotel of the same brand, as it's more a resort than classic hotel. Unfortunately, probably due to the demonstration of Bahrain, hotel has difficulties to maintain high standard. At least, if you want to enjoy this place, go during the week, there is nobody !! Restaurants are still fine.

It was a great long weekend. I stayed there on 25th December 2010. Very good for a family to enjoy sun, beach, pool, atmosphere & the view around the hotel rooms.
They have been very keen to serve us as we like. They offered me variety of rooms to select..
all on the same rate. careful staff who served us at their best..The room was enough to accommodate me, my wife, 2 children (1 king bed and a sofa bed 120cm)
I would definitely return back to enjoy my time.
It is located in a decent area regarding the view, but no transportation, use your car, rent or call hotel to get a taxi for you.Also not close to city centers or malls.
Breakfast variety was fair enough to skip lunch even.

Room Tip: try to get higher floor room to have clear view of the pool & beach. It is GF, 1st & 2nd on...

I have stayed at this hotel many times and would certainly stay here again. The swimming pool is now heated (most of the time) making it ideal for visits late in the year. It can be a bit of a pain getting access to the X Box in the play area. I found all the staff very friendly.
