        The external landscape surrounding the Hotel was very nice as well as the gardens and the pools.

        I was not impressed by the room bathroom.For this price I expected more confort.

        The Al Bustan Palace is stunning!!! It is expensive but well worth the money. Extremely friendly staff, beautiful gardens, amazing beach views and most important - authentic!

        Excellent hotel in every respect. The domed atrium is superb. Beautiful landscaped grounds, 50m pool (good for lap swimming) and very nice private beach. Staff so helpful. Seafood restaurant on the beach fantastic. Short taxi ride to Mutrah. Excellent hotel experience.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Friendly, courteous staff who went about their business in a professional, non-intrusive manner. Good restaurants. Great location and the grassed gardens leading down to the beach are excellent.

        Massage facilities over-booked and no convenient booking times left; access and location of this stange. Booked a garden-view room and got a mountain-view room.

        Lagoon pools and nice gardens

        The lagoon swimming pools were not temprature controlled. Also the kids swimming pool was not temprature controlled and the kids didnt swim due to very cold water.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        Great food at all meals, beach facilities and gardens were perfect.

      • Single
        9.2

        Fantastic facilities, very relaxing. The garden is lovely

        After choosing Booked.net because they offered a garden room, the staff tried to say there were none left and give me a mountain view room. You have to be ready for these people trying to downgrade you from what you offered. This is unacceptable.
