I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and found the entire staff very accommodating. I had an issue with my booking.com reservation and the front desk and manager quickly rectified it for me which I really appreciated. The bell desk, maid service and breakfast staff were friendly and lovely. The view is beautiful. Thank you Fairmont Bab Al Bahr!

This is my 3rd visit to the Fairmont over a number of years. Having just come back from my latest stay it is clear that the standard of service at the hotel has slipped back. A couple of examples. There is little or no service on the beach. I was given towels at the beach hut but no offer to...

We spent one week in this great location and we made a room upgrade on the 6th floor with fantastic views over the famous mosque and the river. The hotel really exceeded our expectations and everything looks much nicer in "Natura" than on the Internet and on pictures. The staff is unbelievable friendly and satisfies every wish you can have....

As all the good five star hotels the restaurants are great but somewhat expensive. Don't miss the night bar out on the pier. The gym is very well equipped and you get free water bottles everywhere in the hotell.

This hotel is just stunning. The service and staff is just excellent. Everyone is very nice and helpful. We tried every single restaurant in the hotel and the food was really good. We can definitely recommend the steak restaurant. Best part of the hotel is the private beach and pool.
