This hotel is top notch. From the time I stepped in until I departed by taxi for the airport. The hotel is really nice with great decorum and ambiance. I only wish I had another night to explore the rest of what it had to offer but the pool was great as was the pool bar. The room itself was comfortable and spacious. The staff was phenomenal and extremely helpful to include the housekeeping staff. The rooms are quiet and the hotel is not very far from the airport. I will definitely stay here on my next visit.

I like so much this hotel, however I would suggest to replace old matresses and install comfortable ones for spine and body proper resting. I have no complain, indeed... Everything in RadissonBlu Bahrain is great to me

Overall appearance of hotel is fine. There is enough parking available around. We reached three hours before the standard check-in time and Mr. Abdulrahman from reception staff was kind enough to not let us wait and accommodated us but another guy (didn't see the name but a little bulky and looked senior) was visibly not very happy on this and said something to Abdulrahman on which he told us that there is a charge for early check-in but as you are our guests for first time, we will not put this charge on you. I took it as a nice gesture before this point (although I would not mind waiting for a couple of hours in lobby) but didn't like this statement coming form them although that I was staying royal club floors and also a club carlson member...and specially the rude way of the other guy (actually whenever I saw him while passing by, I noted that his overall behavior with everyone is rude, maybe this is the way he looks and talks but in hospitality industry this should be improved) . However, Abdulrahman remained nice and pleasant. From the first time, we entered the room, the door lock was having problem and although the hotel staff was with us, he didn't do much to change the card or check the lock. This continued for almost throughout our stay of 5 nights till last day even on repeated complaints to housekeeping staff, till the last day when one gentlemen bothered to take our cards back and get us a new pair....Breakfast at olivis and at lounge was nice and also the light lunch and evening snacks were sufficient although the lounge didn't "appear" to operate completely after this evening snack time till 11 (for tea and juices) as mentioned while booking. However, this was not much bothering point for us. Staff at olivis was at times a bit lazy and forgetful in their service. Overall food was good and Kontiki and pool side bar and food was excellent. The restaurants should remain open till late which was not the case except pool side bar where only light food was available till 1:30 AM. Room was spacious but look of the furniture was a bit old and not contemporary, however, it was reasonable as well. Bathroom was ok. House keeping could have done a better service for cleaning of bathroom and room. Internet was good and not very high speed but served the purpose well, although WiFi at pool side should have been stronger. Swimming pools were great and also remained open for a longer period of time. Check-out process and billing was accurate however, we waited for more than 20 minutes but no one came to took the luggage while I asked this while informing them about check out. I told this at counter that I had to bring myluggage down myself as no one came but reception guy informed us that we asked the staff to take it and someone should have come to your room! I don't know why this someone never appeared but anyhow the reception guy didn't apologize for it. Overall experience at hotel except a couple of these incidents was very good. I recommend this hotel specially because of its pools.

We stayed in the Royal Club rooms. Rooms exceeded our expectations. The coffee machine was a very welcome surprise!! Staff were very friendly and efficient. The pool and area were clean and inviting. It would be good to have a few more children things in the play area.

I received a good, prompt and friendly reception service. The receptionists have to be highly praised for their tact and diplomacy when dealing with customers who push in the queue and are rude and arrogant towards them. Thank you for being professional at all times. Second stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. All of my requests met efficiently and courteously. Food is good and served to high cuisine standard. Room service is an absolute treat and worth the cost. Only thing, could have been sited a bit nearer to Bahrain Airport but as long as you set off in plenty of time no problem. All in all a very pleasant stay and experience. Well done to the staff at Radisson Blu!
