Last Monday, 10th of March 2014, was my first time to be in the Middle East particularly in Dammam & Al Khobar. (Thanks to my job, I am able to see the beauty and challenge of seeing different cultures.) We stayed in Crown Plaza Hotel in Al Khobar and in spite of being new to the place, the hotel's ambiance was so cheerful & friendly to us especially because of the very accommodating hotel staff. Most were filipinos & we, filipinos, are known for hospitality & hardwork.
Special mention to Mr. Robert, Mr. Kenneth, Mr. Allan & Mr. Bimbo who took care all our needs & requests as guests of the hotel. I would also like to mention the warm service of the non-filipino staff (sorry Im not good in remembering other non-filipino names) like the waiter from Indonesia and the locals, like for example our driver who drove us to & from the airport & the mall, the one wearing the national clothes who welcomed us when we arrived & the one who cooked my omelette, that was really delicious. They were great! The management, , in spite of the different culture, was able to create an outstanding team that ran the hotel smoothly & made the guests feel comfortable and satisfied.
Moreover, the room was cozy & beautiful. Me & my colleague had a room with 2 single beds & even a living room area with couches!:) the bed was really soft and relaxing, I slept like a baby from a very tiring flight from Manila. The bathroom was very clean with its oh-so fragrant soap, body wash, lotion & the soft & clean bathrobe & towels! I also love the complimentary fruits, biscuits, chocolate, coffee and tea that they offer. I've seen other rooms with king-sized bed that seems like an executive room. Love love it! Especially the bedtime relaxing spray & roll-on thay I've used when I went to sleep.
Last but not the least, the buffet breakfast in primavera restaurant was incredible! Delicious & savory arabic cuisine! :) A must try!
I'm sure to bid for A dammam flight again so I can stay again in that hotel!
