The hotel has a different feeling to it. The lobby and reception is far from the villas and rooms. It is more like Chalet style, where almost every Chalet is facing the sea. Nice energized atmosphere for guys, especially young ones. It has tons of sports facilities and water sports. We played Tennis and Squash. It is also a spot...

They have nice pool and there is pool for kids. They could be better in the service. It is sort of self service beach club. You should bring with you your towels. The beach is small however they have kayak for rentals.

An excellent spot that only costs 5 Bd for entry. Pool is huge and is right on the beach with plenty of places to lounge in the sun or shade. Jacuzzi is really warm but large and great. Restaurant is very cheap and portions generous. All in all a great place to spend the day.

Resort is located on the east coast of Bahrain (in fact in Sitrah, not in Riffa). Access to it is around an oil refinery but when you arrive, you will find a nice place for relax. Beaches, swimming pools, playgrounds but also smoking rooms makes it attractive for whole families. Of course, during the mid summer its bit too hot.

Very nice rooms nicely furbished and clean. The resort offers a lot of services including restaurant, bars, gym, sauna, tennis court. Very gentle and helpful personnel at reception. Out of season, prices are very low for that top class level.
