Surprise for my wife

Bathroom view from the room
Hello there I can’t answer your question for sure But I have been to the hotel many times. The beauty of it is the beach and the view. It’s a very nice hotel. I have stayed in a room on the grand floor with a leaving room plus bathroom there is a big door separating both rooms. I would say that a 14 y old could sleep well in that sofa. Apparently they don’t have a triple room. The hotel staff is very accommodating. The Sofitel has Been built in 2008 The food is very nice breakfast/lunch Around the hotel there is no places of interest around. 40 min drive to Manama . Uber works well in Bahrain London prices. I hope that help. Good luck

Buffet breakfast around £10 per person but we opted for their HB options. Alcohol is expensive and probably around £10 per glass of wine and £8 for a pint of beer. I would advise go for a Club room as a limited range of alcohol is included in the cocktail hour, from 5-7pm (I think?). The lounge also overlooks the resort and a terrace with an ocean view so a lovely venue for evening drinks.

Le plus simple et le plus correct est de s'adresser directement à l 'hôtel . Très bon hôtel , bon séjour !

Hi, I didn’t use the buffet menu at the dinner. I decided to go for a special Octoberfest menu with a variety of sausages with a German beer. Large pint of beer costed me around 5.5 BHD, and the big plate of German sausages costed 18 BHD. Hope this helps.

Hi. Temperature in Bahrain during December generally averages 23C day and 17C night. The sea would certainly be too cold at that time of year. Conversely, early June to end August can be too hot (mid to hi 40's). Best time would be late May or September. Hope this helps

"All are good but a higher floor for a sea view is worth it at sunset. Not tried the suites but I’m sure they’re amazing!"
"Get a 1 BR suite at least; with balcony!"
"stay away from the 20+ numbers they are at the end of the hall"
"Close to lifts as hotel is big and corridors long"
"Well maintained clean room's "
