Very disappointing

Customer review rating 2.5/5

Nanar G. Families - 23/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed with our 1.5 years old and we had clearly requested the crib during the bookinh and we reminded the guy at the reception but we only got the crib a few minutes before putting my daughter to bed not to mention the crib and its “mattress” was nothing but few sheets on each other without an actual mattress. We had super noisy neighbors who for some reason couldnt keep it down at all. The next day we spent the day at the beach and we wanted to have lunch at the plage, we ordered taouk and fries and chicken (baby section) and a butger platter which took more than 1 hour ro get cz it was the 1st day after Ramadan! Even same morning suring breakfast the waiters kep ton apologizing for not being ready 100% cz they said its the first day after ramadan! With all due respect, but payong and bisiting at a luxurious hotel means only get the best service and not get “sorry its the first day after Ramadan” as an excuse to get with it.

Dear Mrs. G., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay at Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa sea and spa. We sincerely do apologize for any inconvenience that you have experienced.

Excellent Beach and facilities

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

mohammadk119 19/03/2021 TripAdvisor review

The Sofitel Zallaq is an luxurious hotel in many aspects. We went as a family and enjoyed it thoroughly. The beach is natural and of high quality. The hotel architecture and room design are excellent. The service was also outstanding. Outlets are good, but quite on the steep side of prices. Many alternative good options exist outside in Zallaq springs which is just across the road. If you have a car, Rifaa is a close drive with some excellent restaurants. Although the hotel was quite full during our stay, the restaurants were noticeably empty despite the recent opening of indoor restaurants. I would consider the exaggerated high prices of food at the hotel as the only drawback, otherwise everything else was perfect.

Dear Mr. Mohammad, We really appreciate you for taking the time to write your experience and we are delighted to know that we were able to contribute to make your stay a remarkable experience. Your compliments are really encouraging us to keep delivering genuine hospitality both in products and services to our guests. As Sofitel hotel, it is our passion that every guest leaves the hotel with a magnifique experience, and reading your review, we are pleased to note that you truly enjoyed your stay with us. Rest assured that your comments will be shared with the team. We hope to have the chance for welcoming you back. Sincerely, Guest Experience Manager
