Just as the title, we used the Getaway package of Four Seasons Doha to celebrate our anniversary which included a late check out at 6 pm, that made us spend lots of time by the pool.
The hotel is wonderful. The rooms are very comfortable, a big bathroom with bath tub and shower, a large mirror, La Occitane shower gels, soaps, shampoos, conditioners. A incredibly comfortable bed, a flat tv with wide variety of channels...If you get a sea view room with a French Balcony the scenery is wonderful. Internet was not free, no need to bring your notebook as a keyboard is connected to TV for internet use. DVD player and an i pod dock. No kettle or coffee maker inside the room. Wonderful bathrobes and soft slippers. Clean, silent... I like the service by the pool side and at beach, they serve complimentary frozen fruits time to time. They give you an ice bucket with water inside, a lot of towels. The pool gets shaded after 2 pm so you can really chill out. Nice surroundings by the pool area, lots of trees and bushes with flowers and thats why there are flies I think. There must be a nature-friendly method to get rid of those flies. Spa services are wonderful, with swiss shower, sauna, hot stones, jakuzzis, hydrotherapy pool. Changing rooms are full of amenities.
My biggest dissappointment was regarding to the breakfast thats why I gave 4 stars to service. The staff is very helpful, everything is so nice but the food is not satisfying. We had our dinner in Il Theatro Italian Restaurant, they really have fine food. I realize they try to serve the food at the same time even for the crowded groups. Thats very important. I knew that it was seafood night at Brasserie on the Beach at the sametime. I have dined in many open buffet seafood nights in Doha. I just would like to check what they have. I was dissappointed that it is the most expensive seafood open buffet in town and there is quite a few variety of food. Yes, you can select your fish and have it cooked in the way you like but the whole buffet is not satisfying. Not much desert selection, not much salad selection. yes they have sushi stand . All the food is spread all over the area, so it looks like they do not have much to serve. Also they put very small amount of food in to the platters on the buffet, this must be to keep the food fresh and refresh so often but as there is not much variety it looks like there is nothing to eat. You can ofcourse fill your stomach but your brain or your eye may be still hungry. There is lack of pyscological satisfaction I think. That quick check gave me an idea of what I should expect for the breakfast. I was not wrong. Cold waffles and pancakes. Why not they cannot be cooked freshly in front of me? Small variety of cold cuts. Some raw fish with does not give any extra points. Very small variety of bread and baked goods. Big selection of cereals but lack of cheese and olive selection. Thats good that they have a honeycomb. Not much hot platter like sausages. Egg Benedict is nice by the way. I did not like the way at egg stand. I even did not understand if I have the chance to have scrambled egg? Just omlettes. I am writing here but I really did not bother. I must admit yes you can have a wonderful breakfast but you expect more to have at that hotel. Thats the point. May be this may be fixed with just a little touch to the buffet design, atmospehere...
No nightclub, but a cigar lounge.
Shortly, I tried to summarize my observations. None of the negative comments of mine shall feel you hesitated to go to this hotel. Because these are just because of the big expectations and most of them are actually not that much important. Enjoy it.
