Stayed here on 2 separate occasions as holiday makers rather than on business. Had rooms on ground and 3rd floor, 3rd floor was better with view of pool, but both had large and spotless bathrooms, and were well appointed. Pool area is great, and there is a nice green area above the beach if you want to get sun later during the day. The hotel is in the embassy district, we noticed lots of police presence including mounted police, and security staff at the hotel were around but unobtrusive.
There is a supermarket nearby within walking distance if you want to stock up on water, mixers, snacks etc rather than use the minibar which is really expensive. We particularly liked the John Barry bar - great terrace for evening cocktails, glass of wine etc. They do a wine buffet between sun and thur where you can drink what you want from a good selection of wines between 6-9pm for OR13, and even extended this for us when we asked them if we could carry on with food brought over from tuscany restaurant to eat in the bar. Tuscany restuarant was enjoyable, pizzas are massive, pasta portions ditto - we could not finish it.
Tried most of the facilities, all were excellent and the staff were really eager to please. They even remembered us on our second visit. Breakfast is extensive, had a chocolate fountain on the go!
You do need to get taxis to get to the muttrah souk, port area, and most other locations, which can be expensive.
Safari club a bit sleazy, loud music, gyrating band, dodgy looking geezers etc but was quite fun.
Expensive - but felt it was worth it.
