Got around to writing this review a bit late. Realised that tripadvisor doesnt have on the hotel, so thought this wd help.
Stayed during the last weekend of August...just before Ramadan. Got a good price of KD 45 nett while contacting the hotel sales directly
Had heard very mixed reveiws about this hotel..so was a bit apprehensive.
The biggest surprise was when we were shown the room. Didnt expect the standard room to be a suite and then realised that the hotel was an all suite hotel ! The extra spaces are a blessing espcially while travellign with family and kids.
Flat LCD TVs in both living and bedrooms was a nice touch too. Rooms are clean, bed very comfortable. Kitchenette had most of the basics required for tea, coffee and for cooking a simple meal.
For my husband, the best part of the hotel was the excellent health club and gym, had all the latest equipment. We used the spa services on a previous occasion, but didnt find it all that great.
the hotel also has several pools of all kinds of sizes....my 3 yr old son enjoyed the little pool and the play area for the toddlers. But with these pools being so crowded, they should always have a steady supply of towels and more staff..which they didnt.
Another good thing was that the hotel allows you to order takeways from otuside..like pizza hut, KFC etc. quite a money saver - this concession.
Now for the downsides:
During the weekends, the hotel is full of local families - huge in numbers and very loud. So be prepared.
Food in most of their restaurants is very very average. The seafood in the Kuwaiti restaurant Al Muhallab was excellent, but toooo pricey for the place..KD 25 for 2 adults. Liked the traditional decor though.
Service - Reception staff were not very attentive. Always took a while to get their attention. room servcie was slow too.
Overall, this place is okay if you're looking for a decent place with spacious rooms for large families to enjoy ..with lot of pool/beach activities..at a reasonable price. for food, dont eat here, try the many restaurants in the al bidaa beach complex nearby.
