My husband and I have just returned home from another lovely weekend away at Fairmont Bab Al Bahr. This was our second stay there. We had booked a Club Room to benefit from the additional facilties and it was money well spent. From the moment we arrived the staff were helpful (in particular the Bultler Joyce) and very attentive ensuring we had everything we required. The main reception immediately escorted us to the 'Gold' reception on the 7th floor and we were promptly checked in. The afternoon tea, early evening snacks and happy hour were all excellent and far better than we have experienced elsewhere. Breakfast is also served in the club dining facilities which was a very relaxed affair compared to the very busy dining room serving the main hotel guest.
The swimming pool, whilst smaller than other hotels, was well attended but didn't feel too busy. We never ventured to the beach although it looked pleasant.
We ate at the Marco Pierre White Steak Restaurant and enjoyed the meal very much however did feel the service in the restaurant could have been more attentive, however the food was well presented and we both enjoyed our meal.
Whilst, I think, the hotel may cater more for business travellers it had everything we needed for a lovely weekend away and would not hesitate to return, again.
