I visited Kuwait for a business combined personal trip and stayed at here as it was conveniently located to both the office place as well as the residence of a relative of mine. The hotel as it is was located on the beach front with wonderful and uninterrupted views of the Persian Gulf from most of the restaurants.

The rooms were spacious and the welcome basket of fruits and Arabic sweets was the icing on the cake. Talking about the breakfast, it is probably one of the finest and sumptuous breakfast spread I've ever experienced in other hotels across the globe.

If one doesn't want to enjoy food at the hotel, there is a huge strip of restaurants and cafe's right on the doorstep of the resort. No matter how many times I shall visit Kuwait, I'll always prefer this hotel to any other.

Had breakfast here this week with a friend. The restaurant downstairs has a full sea view, beautiful view at any time of day! The sevice was fairly good, regular tea/coffee top-ups & change of cups were offered. The buffet had a lot of variety but lacked some basics like maple syrup for the pancakes and only 1 type of sambosa (cheese) & again the stuffed saj (bread) was only available in cheese too. Either it's a cheese loving chef was on duty or they lack imagination. The hostess was polite and gave a 10 minute notice to each table prior to closing the buffet.

I stayed here for 5 nights. The large room was very good except for the VERY noisy airconditioner fan which I could find no way to turn down to a lower speed. My room had direct access to the swimming pool at the back of the hotel which was very useful for cooling off from the 40c outside temperature. The breakfast was OK, looking like most cooked food had been prepared the following evening. The fruit and pastries were the best part, and very fresh. The front pools that are directly on the beach, are large, clean and well laid out, but were deserted. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. It was a little bit out of town from where we were working, so I might not go back only for that reason.

Room Tip: Try and find one that has a quieter aircon.

Though the location is good , The hotel strucutre is complex all rooms are located outside as challets.The beach is beautiful to look at but not swim in , they have many pools around 4 i think so my recommnedation when booking online and it tells you pool view make sure the pool facing the beach directly you dont want to be ending at the end of the hotel in the parking lot.- Hotel has many facilites for children , kids play area ( check the hygine first ).The rooms are all fited with a kitchenate and refrigarator ,my room fridge made alot of noise. The overall quality of the room and toliteraires are very poor not 5 star but not 100% 4 star. The hygine of the room is not well maintained.The breakfast buffet variety is not grand for a 5 star place and service is of the dining was not great. The lobby indoor and outdoor area is good hangout even in the evening and staff are friendly. The conceirge service is very efficient.
The thing which ididnt like the most which i apparently found out its all over kuwait is that even if there is a non-smoking sign smoking is every where!! thank god it wasnt in the room. Overall if you are thinking grand its not the place , but i would recommend the resturnat and lobby hangout in the evening and later have a walk in al bidaa strip with all the resutrnats , like chocoalte bar , pizza express , starbucks etc. staff are helpful.

Room Tip: choose room facing beach close to lobby , preferable to families with kids as they can enjoy view pl...

I stayed by accident at the Mövenpick Hotel & Resort after my driver accidentally dropped me off there instead of the Mövenpick in downtown Kuwait and at 3AM.

My overall impression of the hotel was poor: the layout of the hotel is complex; the rooms are cheaply decorated (mine had a cooker in it); the main pool was out of order when I came; and the beach in front of the hotel is far from luxurious, strewn with concrete and debris. The only real gem in this hotel is the gym, which is large, modern and well equipped (with both a large selection of cardio and strength-training hardware).

Will not stay there again if I had the choice.
