Feeling at home in a super Luxury place

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Anna F. Solo - 16/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

It's just the perfect place and I highly recommend it✨ I was at Sofitel for 10 days and my room was amazing, from my window front beach I saw the most beautiful sunset. The food it's delicious, many choices at the buffet and three beautiful restaurants, the sushi bar was my favorite place. But Sofitel won my heart because of his staff which makes the difference. Monika, Asish, Abul, the receptionist, the laundry boy, the room service... I don't remember all the names but I would like to mention all of them. If you aren't planning a stay there at list you need to go for a drink by the pool or a dinner. Nice people, nice music and super Luxury place. Love Sofitel ♥️☺️☀️

The service from Arwa, Kundan, Sunil and Malcolm was great ! They were attentive and kept us well fed :) Great waffles from Amin ! We were able to organize a late checkout and enjoyed some time at the pool ! Maison restaurant was divine ! We look forward to coming back in the summer to enjoy all the facilities !

Good Stay

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Danielle R. Couples - 09/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Amenities were good but property information could be more accessible. The grounds were well kept and beautiful! Overall we had a great stay. We had some simple room issues that should be readily corrected at this level of expected luxury. Pillows in the room are not acceptable, our coffee maker was broken and needed to be replaced, the fridge wood was all warped and the lamps were falling apart, our AC didn't work. All of our issues were corrected immediately with friendly service but some room checks prior to guests arriving would catch any of the issues that need a quick fix. We had no remote for the stereo (which is also the room clock), and it took us a stop by the front desk plus 4 phone calls to get one sent up. Apparently it's a high touch item that needs deeper cleaning requiring a call for one, but the tv remote was in our room? Strange. There are very few outlets or charging areas for electronics throughout the room. The property is older in this respect. Be sure to bring a three prong adapter if you have an international device as there are none on site. An info binder in the room would be a perfect remedy to all the questions and calls to the front desk. No hours or menus are posted for restaurants, club, or the spa anywhere and there is no information in the room, so we had to call the front desk repeatedly to get basic info which was a waste of time. They quickly tell you the info at check in, but it is too much to remember. A pamphlet or property map with info would be welcome. We called down at one point for an ice bucket and two glasses. We were charged for the Ice, but received no scoop or glasses. The little details need some work to truly be a luxury resort. There were no options for NYE at any of their restaurants, except buffet which we weren't interested in. One more option for guests would be great! For the most part, the staff was generous and kind but we did have one bad experience in the buffet restaurant with a manager name Kundan. He was terribly mean to the staff and very rude to us when we arrived for breakfast on our second last day of our stay. He refused to smile or acknowledge our requests, and muttered at us that the restaurant was closing, but we arrived at the same time for two days previous so this was confusing to us. (Posted hours would help if there is a time shift during the week). He was unfriendly and clearly all the staff were scared of him. We did not return to the Buffet for our last day. He had two other altercations with guests while we were dining and was very rude. He even yelled at staff in front of the guests. We purchased daily buffet breakfast in Saraya as well as the Club access. You do not need both. You can dine in the Club for a lovely breakfast if you have purchased access and are staying in a room on the club floor. This was unclear when I booked. The breakfast buffet in Saraya needs work. There are not enough staff members to properly serve guests and the stations are not well manned which resulted in impatient and untended guests, long line ups where social distancing was difficult to maintain and you couldn't access all the foods because there was no one to serve it, so the hot line was overrun and too busy to keep up. The Chef and his team did an excellent job but they need more help. As well, the breakfast buffet is the same everyday and it appears to be the only option on site. Our experience in the Club was the complete opposite! I can't say enough about the incredible team staffed up there during our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. They was amazing and looked after us so perfectly, I can't imagine ever going elsewhere. As well, Deepak and the team at Tapas was incredible as well. Exceptional Service and delicious food. If you're looking for a relaxing getaway, this is a great spot! It feels like a mid level Caribbean all inclusive but is priced as a luxury resort without the inclusive resort options. It is costly. Some small changes will improve the experience overall. We will go back because the location is great, the beach area and pool are wonderful. The location is great and the property is really beautiful! We left relaxed and refreshed. Be mindful that this property is not actually in the city of Al Manama but comes up as that when you are researching. We had a car to access the city which was fine, but it is a long drive if you are taxi-ing from the airport in Manama.

This was our second holiday in the last 6 months at Sofitel Bahrain. As always the hotel is a wonderful property with a beautiful view of the sea. The hotel staff were very nice and friendly.

A special mention to the wonderful people at rivaaj , chef salim for the sumptuous biryani and Ajay, mukesh, bandana , Monica and especially Merwyn for taking good care of us. We look forward to having more such wonderful stays at the Sofitel in future.

zkarimc 05/01/2022 TripAdvisor review

Our time ay the Sofitel was wonderful - opulently decorated, quality amenities, wonderful service and an array of fantastic restaurants to dine in. We had access to the club lounge which in particular exceeded our expectations - possibly the best lounge we've experience. The staff at the club lounge namely Maria, Arwa, Navneeta and Hasnath were proactive in their service and presented food and drinks to a five star standard. The check-in process was seamless and personalised thanks to the wonderful Marifhel who followed up with us numerous times during our stay to ensure everything was well. Highly recommend this hotel and its staff.

Dear Mr. Karim, Thank you for your excellent feedback. Our Club Millesime is a good option and highly recommended for guests who are looking for a little something extra to make their stay memorable and we are glad to know that you enjoyed the benefits of it. Moreover, we are delighted to know that we have exceeded your expectations and we have made you leave with a remarkable experience. It will be my pleasure to share your compliments to the team in particular Maria, Arwa, Navneeta and Hasnath. We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you back again for another magnifique experience.

Nice stay, but the hotel needs a upgrade in the interior

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Julie Families - 03/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room balcony could need a facelift. No proper chairs or table. And no place to hang towels and swimsuits. The restaurant food was so nice, but the chairs where not very clean because of the fabric and not very Covid friendly. The hotel staff was very busy with setting up things for NYE and that because of that the service for the guest who was actually there was not good. We tried to order drinks in the pool bar for an hour without anyone showing up. The staff was so sweet but they where busy. The NYE party was great
