Very large hotel. Often used for conferences and business related parties and events. Rooms are worn-out. Carpet has stains, water in bath is brown... not worth the money. Food (breakfast-lunch-dinner) is good though...

Hotels by the ocean often have mold and mildew issues--as does this one, so don't hesitate to change rooms. Pool area is nice, and the walk out onto the jetty is really nice. Sunday brunch is incredible--pricy, but a great way to spend a few hours. Try grilled lobsters!

This is the second time I am here : since I couldn't manage booking in a much better Radisson blu. This is very old and a massive hotel but service is one of the worst. My airport pick up arrived after 2 calls and 30 mins and after a 14 hour flight this is not a good feeling. Check in...

I've had to stay at the King Fahd twice in the past year and won't stay there again. Despite confirming pickup at the airport, no one showed up and I had to borrow a phone to call the hotel and wait 40 minutes. My room wasn't ready when I got to the hotel at 10 pm and I was sent...

They charged twice on my debit card in settlement for accommodation and its been two months following up for the refund. Every time I call them they ask me to send email which i have sent so many so far with no success. I expected more from the hotel and have been deeply disappointed.

This used to be the Le Méridien President Hotel. Unsure when it became the King Fahd Palace. Old, in need of refurbishment, slow wifi, no café (that I could find). Air conditioning in the room varied from very cold to warm over the period of my stay, with no adjustment on my part. Room numbers very small and difficult to...

Stayed for a week whilst attending a conference. Rooms clean and cool. Outside restaurant nice, good food and very good staff. Pool area a bit dated, but nice bar and quiet and relaxed.
