(I just reviewed the wrong Ramee Hotel before this - I am certain that this review is for the correct hotel since I looked at the map! If somebody sees the review I submitted for the other Ramee before this post, please delete it as I do not wish to defame that hotel!)
My wife and I have been in Bahrain for about 3 weeks now and we are teachers at Bahrain School. My hotel is down the street from the Ramee in Jaffair. (I'm staying at the Majestic Hotel). The Ramee appears quite nice from the outside. We saw a lively atmosphere and a neon sign for the "Black Cave Discotheque" and decided to walk over tonight.
The lobby looked quite nice. We found that the discotheque was around the side. As we walked into the cave and approached the counter, we were told by the employee behind the counter that "only Arabs" were allowed in.
I am dismayed by this blatant display of discrimination and encourage people, both Arab and non-Arab, to not support an establishment with such disgusting policies.
I plan on teaching and living here in Bahrain for several years. In our short time here we have found this to be a nation of generous, kind people. However, this establishment will make a bad reputation for the blossoming tourist industry in Bahrain and I will be certain to tell everybody I know, both Arab and non-Arab, to avoid it.
