Perfect stay

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Najat S. Couples - 20/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We came for a couple staycation and it was perfect. The room was fancy and the bed was great. The balcony with a great view was a good place to sit and chat. The food was delectable especially the pasta and butter chicken. The pool was good and perfect temperature. The sea was so clean but I would love it if there isn’t lots of small rocks at the shore to make it easier to walk but I’m not complaining. The drinks were nice and I loved the ice cream booth. The shisha place was great but I would have loved it if it opened before 4pm and maybe we can stay longer before they close. It was my husband’s first time to stay and he is in love with the place so thank you for making our staycation perfect and memorable.

A relaxing and restful stay.

Starting the day with breakfast was always a pleasure to look forward to and Dharamender and all his staff gave us everything we asked for speedily from a menu of many choices. Again the Club was a pleasure to visit with its very friendly staff. The Afternoon and Evening food was excellent and we were always served and looked after by a lovely young lady called Navneeta who gave us everything we asked for.The Housekeeping staff were a lovely flexible team who very thoughtfully provided balloons and flowers for my wife’s 70th birthday.Finally thanks to all the guys in reception and the lifeguards around the pool and beach who were all very helpful.

Hebah A. N. Friends - 18/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

My experience with your hotel was bad. First bad in room service if we asked for something we should wait for a long time to get it delivered to the room. We ordered a club sandwich but it wasn’t like the other club sandwiches without toast layers and without cheese it was checkin sandwich!! And a dry one. Also the breakfast buffet got so limited options its not a five star hotel breakfast buffet even though you have eggs and pancakes stations its not enough. Secondly Once we get investigated when we enter the hotel by the intrance security he asked where we are going? we told him we have a room here then he asked rudely if we are coming to friends!!! Like we are lying. And the toilet not provided with all the vanity kits you got lofa but we have to ask for it to get it plus waiting for a long time to get it!!! At the last day we asked for someone to get our languages down to do our check out but nobody came, we went down to the reception and we did the check out we asked the lady for someone to get our language down, she asked if our car arrived!! We are having a car from uber we can’t keep the driver wait so it doesn’t charge us. And we waited more than 15 minutes to get our language. The service was the worst in general.

The friendliest hotel we have ever had the privilege to stay in. Every member of staff made you feel special and although we made no mention that our stay was to celebrate my 70th birthday, when the housekeeping staff saw the tell tale signs of my birthday in our room they arrived with a beautiful bunch of roses and balloons. The staff at breakfast were very attentive and after the first morning knew what we wanted and provided us with a first class service every day. Also, deserving a mention for excellence is Navneeta, who was friendly and always had a smile no matter how busy she was.

Dear Ms. E., Thank you for choosing Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa sea & spa to celebrate your 70th birthday and we truly appreciate your sharing your outstanding feedback. It is always a great motivation and recognition for our team to hear about guest satisfaction which is our main goal.
