“Incredible Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2009

Overall I was really impressed with this hotel. (and Kuwait in general) Although it didn't look like a typical 4 star that you'd expect in a European City, the Service & attentiveness of the staff was superb. The restaurant food was fantastic. The only complaint, when checking out there seemed to be a very steep bill for service charges and water from from the mini bar (!? beware), which wasn't clearly explained or itemized. Other than this I'd score it a 9/10

It's really a good hotel. Good location & view. Well equipped with all facilities. Free WIFI.
It was a short trip to judge on it fairly. But according my experience in 5 stars hotel. They should work hard to be on the right track. Room service & House keeping are not on the level of 5 stars.
No shopping malls or leisure places beside the hotel. You should drive 10 minutes to reach the nearest mall or social place. The only thing that you can do by walking is to walk beside the sea. Sea is really beautiful in this area.

I wanted to spend the Eid vacation in Kuwait, and I asked my travel agent in Dubai to book me in a family friendly hotel in Kuwait. He recommended Costa Del Sol Hotel.
He stated that it was a new hotel, and that he actually has visited the hotel prior to their opening. I was hesitant in the beginning, since it is a new hotel, not part of a well known chain, and I’m used to staying at the Sheraton all the time.
My family and I were amongst the first guests at the hotel after their soft opening in December 1st, and we got the royal treatment there. The food was excellent, and the rooms have the most panoramic view of the gulf (staying in the 19th floor you feel that you are in the middle of the ocean on a cruise ship).
The only negative point the hotel had is that only one restaurant is open at the moment (Olas), because I was told the second one (Sea Food Restaurant) will be opened during the official opening of the hotel in January 2009.

  • Liked — The view
  • Disliked — Only one resturant is open at the moment.
