They were attentive to every detail and went above and beyond to ensure my comfort throughout my stay. The level of professionalism and friendliness displayed by the hotel staff truly enhanced my overall experience.

The beautiful interior decor evokes a sense of elegance, with tasteful furnishings and exquisite artwork adorning the halls and rooms.

My suite was impeccably designed, featuring a spacious bedroom, a comfortable seating area, and a lavish bathroom. The room boasted modern amenities, including a large HD television, a well-stocked mini-bar, and plush bedding that ensured a peaceful night's sleep. The attention to detail in room upkeep, cleanliness, and comfort was unparalleled. Dining Experience The dining options at The Novotel resort are a gastronomic delight.

Dear Accor team, I would like to share my disaster experience during my recent stay in Novotel Al Dana Resort in Bahrain. This was my second stay in this resort and my experience was disaster and unbearable. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY IF YOU ARE TRAVELLING WITH SMALL KIDS. I’m not sure why they show such unprofessional attitude, right from the entrance gate, through to check-in and till you exit the property. The moment I entered the property, the security guard asked me “YES, WHATTTTT DO YOU WANTT???”. I told him I have a reservation and then he said, YALLA GO AND PARK (IN THE PARKING NEAR GATE) AND PROCEED TO RESERVATION. There were plenty of parking spaces vacant near the reception area itself which he refused to allow. On Day 2, I requested for plates and small quantity of salt to feed homemade food for my infant and the response was, I need to order food from the property to get plate and salt. I requested repeatedly, but they refused to provide. I had a lengthy argument both with reception and hotel team as my infant started crying due to hunger. As a father, I was unable to control my emotions too, but no one was kind enough to help me out. In the end, restaurant attender manipulated my aggressive request to the hotel manager, who said I can check out if I’m not comfortable with the stay!!!!!!!!!. How comes a restaurant manager can force me to vacate the property if I’m not comfortable with the stay?? In the end, I was blamed for being aggressive rather then understanding the guest's urgency while staying with small infants. The restaurant team should accept the fact that Half-boarding packages comes with a price not as a complementary (we pay money and you provide food). They were not cooperative at all during my breakfast and dinner time which was another story. Most of the warm food trays were open all the time, and there were no cutleries on the table . The staffs were very tired and exhausted due to long working hours (I feel sorry for them). I have stayed in many Accor properties worldwide and I never experienced such worst behaviors (not in even in the hotels which has star rating of 3 and below). Also, you cannot request water bottles directly from the house keeping team even if you see them near to your room. You need to call reception to place official request for water bottles. All I can hear from them was “AS PER HOTEL POLCIY…..”. I do respect the policy, but there should be a kind gesture to some urgent requests, especially for the guests coming with infants and kids. There were other problems too, like poor wifi connection, card deactivation before the first day, the pool was not temperature controlled (not as advertised in the website), they refused to provide bottled drinking water in the restaurant (even for half-board package) which I can tolerate to an extent but not their bad behaviors. Regarding pool water temperate, they said this will be activated only during peak winter. You can see every one trying to fit in the jacuzzi (as a pool) which was the only temperature controlled water.
