    Everything about this hotel is good except their dinner buffet was disaster I really regret having my dinner their simply because I felt like I’m going to Indian restaurant all the food was same as curry and very oily and there is nothing suited me and my family also the selection of the main course was very little and it’s not worth paying BD 18 at all .

    Perfect place to spend special occasion”

    It's my first time in Sofitel Bahrain and everything is really perfect, all staffs were very nice from check in to check out. Since it's my birthday they upgraded us for free and they even surprised me with a tasty cake and fruits, they assisted us from the car, help us with our luggage and they provide whatever we need. Housekeeping team is really helpful, the lady from the club lounge is really accommodating. All Filipino Staffs are very polite and friendly. They made my Birthday extra special. Thank you very much Sofitel

    Five Star Service”

    Staff, beach, rain shower

    My husband and I and our 5-month-old spent a long weekend at the Sofitel, starting with brunch on Friday and checking out Monday. We arrived very early on Friday, but were able to check into our room before brunch. It was our anniversary and a cake was sent up for us to enjoy on our first night. We ate in the Saraya restaurant, the Lagoon restaurant and the Tapas restaurant. All the food - breakfast lunch and dinner were top-drawer. What really impressed us though was the service. We got very personal attention and despite needing quite a bit of help because of the baby, everyone was cheerful and friendly. They remembered our names and our orders everywhere we went. The room was very comfortable. The bed was awesome, as was the rain shower and bathtub. The provided toiletries are of a high quality (separate shampoo and conditioner is especially nice when you have curly hair!). We wanted to tip the staff for being so amazing, but did not have cash on us. You can add a tip by hand when signing for food and they will add it to your bill. The on-site spa is a separate entity, so you cannot charge services to your room - bring your cash or card with you. This hotel is not cheap, but the luxury, service and beachfront make it well worth the cost. We loved it and will go back again.

    Awesome Hotel with fantastic staff.”

    Rooms, Pool, Beach, Staff and everything else.

    It is probably the best hotel combining service excellence and luxury I have stayed in. The only negative was the fact that it was not communicated that all but 1 restaurant would be closed in the evening during Ramadan. This restricted our choice to a predominantly Arabic buffet or room service.

    An Oasis Away From Everyday Life”

    Beautiful surroundings, comfortable bed, amazing staff

    My husband and I stayed at the Sofitel for a romantic weekend. Although the hotel seems to cater more to families, we were still able to have an amazing time there. The best feature of the room was the balcony over-looking the pool (ask for a 4th floor room for an unobstructed view). The bed was the most comfortable I've slept in this year! The bathtub was a treat after a day on the beach. On Friday, it was busy, so get out early and stake out your deck chair. Everywhere we looked in this hotel was beautiful. The beach was a lovely place to sit or swim. We had brunch Friday morning, which was amazing from start to finish and we ate in the Tapas restaurant in the evening, which was delicious (try the tempura prawns!). The hotel is off the beaten path in Bahrain (16 BD for a hotel car to City Centre Mall), but it is exactly perfect if what you want is to relax, decompress and lounge.

    Friendly and helpful concierege

    We spent two nights here, eating at two of the different restaurants each evening. Everything is very pleasant here, if somewhat isolating. Recommended if you want to get away from it all. Although we didn't take advantage of any of the spa treatments, one of us did get a haircut which was reasonable and nicely done. One note: while happy hour in the bar behind the desk is 2 for 1, the staff interpret that as per person (i.e., you can't buy a drink for each person and pay for just one, but if you buy a drink, you can have a second one free).

    It is lower than 5 star”

    Idea is good, the name is well known. But performance is poor. In addition to chaise lounges which have to be thrown away due to their appearance, I got dust some room places, two nights no face/hand towels. Though, after my Email to GM I got purely clean room, full bed with rose petals and suggestion to upgrade my room. My resume the hotel is still hopes to keep 5-stars status. The bottom-line is: Sofitel should look differently.

    Not a 5 Star Hotel”

    When the Hotel it self claims they are 5 star, they set some expectations. We have been staying on several others 5 star hotels around the Globe and the Management of Sofitel should visit them ad compare. Be self critique about its own performance. Here in very big headlines, happy to talk to Management directly. Sofitel needs significant improvement in the areas of claiming themselves as 5 star, Cleanliness of our rooms, pool service which was a disaster, never experienced so bad before. Hotel was fully booked and it seems like a overwhelming task for the breakfast crew. Big ques at the egg station, blocking for other items you would like to have. Food cold. Some was a low quality of experience. No coffee brought to the table. Swimming pool - the Lagune - the water was so hot due to dis function in the cooling system. Engineer I talked with said the problem was solved. Was not. Kids pool fantastic area. Location for Hotel, fantastic. But overpriced, to overpriced for everything

    Absolutely satisfying experience”

    This hotel is absolutely beautiful combining Arabian feel and modernity in its architecture. It is luxury at its finest. To its advantage, it also has excellent employees who further enhance the experience of staying at the hotel and thus instil a want to keep coming back to the hotel again. I had stayed here a few days ago for my 1st marriage anniversary, and the hotel staff had beautifully decorated my room and prepared a bath to welcome us. It seemed like so much effort had been taken and I would like to sincerely thank the people who had done so (unfortunately I could not end up meeting them). The beach and the swimming pool are also excellent, and the breakfast and evening snacks variety is superb with impeccable taste. Overall, there is enough to do within the hotel itself for a day or two of relaxation. I would strongly recommend this hotel to all couples and families looking for a getaway to just stay and relax in Bahrain. You wont be disappointed one bit!

    I booked this trip for a romantic weekend getaway for my birthday. There were some issues initially with the booking due to unreliable Saudi banks, but the hotel did offer me a discount on services to make up for the inconvenience caused. Once the issue was settled, both myself and my boyfriend enjoyed our stay immensely, and I would definitely go back in the future.
