I originally stayed at this property when it was still the Hilton, at a time when my employers had a special deal with the Hilton chain. Later, had to spend a couple of long-ish stays in Bahrain, and went back because it was quiet and familiar. On realising that I was spending longer than the average guest, the hotel gave me a special long-stay rate - which I have to stay was a very good rate indeed.
I see that many other travellers have had negative experiences; I had a broadly positive experience. While the hotel definitely has some rooms that need refurbishing, it seemed to me that they use those rooms primarily for airline crews and similar guests. I had rooms in good condition, and received good service.
In particular, because I was staying a relatively long time, I was eating light - ordering only an appetiser course. When the chef realised that I was eating only an appetiser, he proceeded to make special ones for me, larger than the regular helping and perfect for my purpose. Also, as I was regularly working late, they occasionally kept the pool and gym open for me a little longer than the usual closing time.
Overall - not the right place for anyone expecting flawless luxury; but if you know what you are looking for, and ask nicely, I found I got everything I wanted.
