                                        The Platinum Room was excellent, really liked the personalised attention and service given by staff.

                                        Maybe the adverts could be more accurate, the Butler service never happened even when requested, sea view was a glimpse.

                                        Stayed on the platinum floor - lovely comfortable bed & fabulous bathroom + the hospitality floor was great!

                                        Airport limo transfer quoted by reservations dept as BHD 8 per trip but on checking out we were charged BHD 10 per trip. A bit embarrassing when I queried the amount & then had to prove the quote by printing emails & getting it clarified by reservations!

                                        The buffet breakfast was excellent especially due to the pork products available for non Muslim travellers.

                                        Normally the services are very good, but this weekend they were full, and it showed because all everyyhing was not up to the usual stanard.

                                        This hotel is perfect for a short trip but it was noisy. Summer is a time to do work and restore the hotel. But we try one time again to see the difference between summer and winter

                                        Internet was only available in the lobby area. It would be more convenient for guests if internet were also available in guest rooms. The breakfast buffet was not well organized, hot food was not maintained at correct temperature and was only available in lukewarm condition.
