We arranged for the hotel to provide airport transfers. However, the representation left before we cleared customs and upon calling the hotel we were notified that we would be charged double if they returned. We paid for a taxi only to find out that Novotel billed my credit card and I had to speak with the manager to have the...

I would not say the hotel is anything fancy, but it is pleasant and the staff seemed more than happy to be of assistance. Nothing in Bahrain is far bit this hotel is convenient between the airport and town.

It's a good resort with a great pool and a small beach. It has nice restaurants on the pool and water front with good food, drinks and sheesha. Outdoors is great but overall the property is a bit old and indoors feels outdated with old Arabian decor, furniture and layout.

Great place to spend the day. You can pay to use the pool and beach if you aren't a guest at the hotel. During the week it's 30BD for a couple. Popular with local families also, kiddies enjoy playing in the pool and on the beach. Great place to relax and also to grab a bite to each as there...

We booked this getaway after speaking with others who had stayed in this hotel, and were we glad we did! Upon arriving, we were greeted by courteous staff, and given an early check-in for no additional charge. We went to our room, and when we opened the doors, we just stood there with our jaws open.

Good location and private beach. Friendly staff. The children love the beach and the pool. A little out of the way for the shopping areas and not many taxis seen nearby. Check out time prompt although we are regular clients at this hotel.

While the hotel was nice (good pool, nice little beach area, good food) and they did try their best to address a minor odor issue with the bathroom, the biggest problem I had was with its shady management practices.
