Ritchie L. Couples United Kingdom, January 21, 2015
A First Class hotel in a stunning location

The hotel building - lobby to rooms, staff service, beach and garden location
9.7
Top-drawer all around. The hotel is a remarkable building in a glorious setting. Staff were excellent from the moment we reached the front door, proper 5 star service. This was a quieter and more refined, slightly older crowd than at the Al-Bandar hotel we had stayed at previously in the trip.
Abdul A. Couples United Kingdom, December 25, 2014
5 star hotel with 3 star service

Locaton, the building itself and the beach
8
Disapointing , 5 star hotel turned into 3 stars service . We stay in Al Bustan since 1991 twice a year on a regular basis . The Ritz Carlton turned this establishment into 3 star service hotel with its inferior quality in supplies inside the room, like the tea bags and shampoo and soaps. We had to ask the staff overtime for new fresh supply ! Yet Carlton Ritz increased the rate . I think they just capitalising on the building and the previous reputation Al Bustan Palace had , but if they not careful, this will go down rapidly !

It was good but the beach was horrible no sands to cover !! Lots of stones causing injuries to people feet , needs URGENT ATTENTION. Concerns raised with the management already.

This was my 3rd stay at Al Bustan Palace and it was exactly what I was looking for - a place to relax. Their private beach is absolutely beautiful, rooms are very comfortable and staff are very friendly.

Views, food, service

It's a good experience, all things were ok, except the location that you have to pay minimum 25$ for taxi, no supermarkets around to buy your things, unless you go to the city center. Loved the food though they have a weird rules not to wear a short pant while you're eating at their restaurants !!!

Very pleasant, relaxing stay made even more so by the extremely pleasant and helpful staff. The infinity pool formed the focal point of our stay and was great for swimming, relaxing and playing with the family. The gardens formed a wonderfully relaxing setting.
