Very grand hotel (more of a resort really) with great public areas - large lobby, lots of restaurants and a nice pool area. The interior decor is a bit too dark for my taste (lots of black and gold) but nonetheless quite tasteful. The two restaurants I ate at were both very good, and service (including concierge) was great throughout my stay.
My problem was with the room which I found extremely small and the bathroom which was not up to Ritz Carlton standards. The room they allocated me was the smallest I have had at a 5 star hotel. After I protested, the hotel staff showed me some other rooms which were larger but with no view and equally small bathrooms. The bathrooms are a disaster - tiny and poorly designed with a combined bath and shower and cramped WCs. The scale and quality of the public areas makes the size and design of the rooms even more surprising and they are certainly not of 5 star quality.
This is supposed to be the best hotel in Manama and that's perhaps true of the facilities, but I would be amazed if one couldn't find better rooms elsewhere.
