“Great ambiance”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

I went with my wife there for valentine "brunch" this time. The setup a very nice table for us on the grass, couple of meters away from the sandy beach, the water view was spectacular.
It was an open buffet for 15 kd per person. It fell way below my expectations in terms of food variety and quality but the atmosphere was nice.
It can be too pricy but the view made it worth it. Staff are very friendly.
It is romantic apart of the kids who were jumping around.

I was at the Movenpick for 7 days for a training at Kuwait City.
Staff was very friendly, breakfast and buffets were actually quite good and I don't have any complaints. Gym was good as well.

My only complain is the noise during the night, you can hear families talking, children screaming, etc.

But I do recommend it eyes closed!

We spent 5 nights at this hotel and would be pleased to return (4 in party - 2 children)
- the team here cannot do enough to make your stay as good as it gets - nothing is too much trouble - they really do go that extra mile. It was our daughters 6th birthday whilst staying there and casually said to the chef she was allowed chocolate pancakes for breakfast - 2 minutes later a small cup cake with decoration and 5 singing staff arrived at the table to her surprise and delight. We stayed in a standard room with balcony over looking the pool area - clean tidy and quiet - offered good value for money. Easy taxi ride to all locations. Just outside the hotel is a row of cafes and restaurants ranging from Costa and Starbucks to Pizza Express and TGI's - walking distance when you just want to get something quickly

Stayed here with my family over Xmas 2013. We were collected from the airport, welcomed by lovely staff. Our room was very nice and cleaned several times a day. The selection of food in the restaurant was amazing with flawless catering services. My niece absolutely loved the pools and beach play area. We made use of the spa facilities and totally loved our treatments. Everything was fantastic and I would recommend this resort to all my family and friends.
