The location has a wonderful beach, outdoor cabanas with overhead awnings, and a refreshing walking path around the inlet with views of the city across the waterway. Wonderful cozy English-style tavern in the hotel. Exquisite bed linens and bath towels with high-end toiletries. And an in-room expresso maker - my favorite indulgence. Small welcome basket of fresh fruit was a nice touch. Wonderful robe, trouser press, the whole shibang. And the best night of sleep I can remember.
Some minor complaints - I needed a business center while visiting and ended up using a computer stuck in the corner of a gift shop. The front desk staff were very helpful in getting me connected but really, I think a Ritz Carlton should have a real business center. The hotel on the outside - or at least part of it - is an unattractive building, though the plush landscaping detracts you. Because of the form of the building, some of the rooms are small but with the room amenities, I didn't mind. And the front desk at times seemed very short-staffed. When the taxi arrived to take me to the airport, neither the doorman or the front desk staff offered to assist me with getting my bags to the cab.
I hope to stay longer next time to use the most spectacular gym/atletic club I've seen at a hotel and to enjoy the pools and beach. Instead of Dubai for a three-day weekend to relax, I'll consider the Bahrain Ritz Carlton.
