We visited today for Eid brunch. Great selection of food. Great meat! Good band. But it is the service that makes this brunch noteworthy. Survo really made this an extra special experience for us as family. A special mention to chandrakanth who all pay tales such great care of the hubby at grill and chill. If you have e not tried this if is definitely worth a Thursday evening visit.

Beautiful hotel that leaves nothing to be desired. The hotel stands out for its central location. All attractions are reachable within 15-20 minutes by taxi. Walking through the hotel grounds, one feels like being in paradise. the hotel is very luxurious and the large garden is like a huge well-kept park. All staff members are very friendly and welcoming, catering to every request. The hotel rooms and villas are spacious, offering a view of the pool and garden that invites you to dream. The spa leaves nothing to be desired - a large separate building with something for everyone. The food is delicious, whether it's breakfast in an elegant setting or dinner in the garden adorned with many lights - simply magical. The rooms are well-maintained and very clean. There is plenty of water, as well as tea and coffee in the rooms. Service is a top priority at Al Messila Luxury Resort. We will definitely come back. We want to thank the amazing staff, at the reception, in the restaurant, in the kitchen, and in the service department. You are awesome - Al Messila Family <3 Special thanks goes to Bonita, Khaoula, Fatima, Rue, Mecre & Mika, as well as the entire reception team, Ishak, Sandun & Ashan, and the breakfast team, Chef Hamad & his team, and the friendly staff at the entrance - Thank you so much!! Doha itself is an exciting city full of culture and modernity. We felt welcome and safe at all times. There is so much to explore. For those traveling during Ramadan, it's important to note that there are restrictions. We intentionally chose this period and were very satisfied. Everything is beautifully decorated, and the dinner there is like a celebration. We would choose this period again at any time.

Pool was beautiful and very relaxing. Lifeguard Mahabub was very accommodating and friendly. He took good care of us with towels and refreshments. It was a very relaxing day out which was enjoyed by everyone. I will definitely be back again soon.

I want to provide an honest review from a British traveller who booked the full board plus package for 10 nights. The reason for the trip was for my 40th and therefore we wanted something special. The hotel lived up to that in terms of the building and pool area, absolutely beautiful! Where the hotel let its self down and spoilt our trip was the service. We booked full board plus and were advised before we went this included unlimited alcohol with our meal, which was one of the reasons for booking this package due to the cost of alcohol in qatar (£11.50 for a bottle of beer). However, they tried to charge us on numerous occasions for alcohol with our meal. If it wasn't for the Spanish lady (sorry didn't get name) who sorted this out, the embarrassment of challenging this everyday would have spoilt the holiday entirely. The staff in the main restaurant and round the pool were great. However the speciality restaurant staff and the checkin staff were bordering on useless. They told you incorrect things or just disappeared when you asked for something.... odd. Would I go back, not for the price unless service gets better. If this wants to be a true five star, don't just give the customer what they have paid for after embarrassing them and ruining three days of the holiday, but try and make up for it with a little apology. I hope it gets better as it has the potential, it just needs someone to oversee the whole operation.

Went there for Suhour , the weather was exceptionally nice with the venue being at the garden but unfortunately the food wasn't as expected, mostly either cold or bland dk if it was my fault going bit late or it is theirs as their food should be up to mark during gheir announced timing het when they did some refills it was good enough. Asked me about my name and reservation almost 4 or 5 times even though I was being asked at the entrance and guided to my table and they pushed for the payment way too early. Overall it was agood experience not that bad yet I won't be doing that again.

Don't be confused by the name 'luxury' and 5 stars, this hotel is far from this. We were 'lucky' to stay in the hotel during Ramadan. Without any notice on the time of booking that all the facilities will be closed we discovered this when we arrived: a swimming pool is closed, kids playground and pool also closed, only one restaurant is working. Breakfast was so poor, dinner was good - but only at those days when were were 'allowed' to go there. Please note that even you have pre paid dinners, the only restaurant was closed 'for private event' every other evening and guests of the hotel are supposed to sit in the rooms and order from a very poor menu! And here is my biggest disappointment - the service and zero hospitality. A guest is none in this hotel: no water offered upon arrival, no alternative with the dinners forced to have in the room, you can wait for a coffee forever (bad coffee by the way) they did not even ask whether we enjoyed our stay in the end. Hotel offers a shuttle to Sheraton for the beach and swimming pool - something built 40 years ago and very outdated infrastructure- not what you expect when booking 'luxury'. Never again

A wonderful Suhour experience with my colleagues. A very warm and friendly atmosphere and an efficient service. The staff who stood out was Manoj who was very attentive and hands on. A point of improvement is to have better signage’s to the tent. Will visit again.
