Few days ago, we went to the Marina Hotel in Salmiya to spend a short vacation which was for five days and four nights and it was during the middle of the week.
We were lucky to take the 88 KD per night package and this offer was only valid till the 15th of September. This offer includes breakfast and using all facilities such as the pool and the gym.
Our room was a sea view room and was on the 1st floor facing the beach. The two photos below were taken from the balcony of our room.
We also took an extra bed which cost 23 KD per night and includes free breakfast and the use of the facilities as well.
This is our third time in the Marina Hotel and this hotel just became our comfort zone.
The receptionists are very polite, kind and helpful and their smile just gives you the positive vibes you need for a peaceful vacation.
Even the room service staff, the restaurant staff, the pool staff and the beach staff are so caring to the extent that they make you feel at home so thumbs up to the Customer Service in Marian Hotel.
These two photos below are for the Six palms restaurant where the breakfast buffet is served every morning starting from 6 am till 11 am.
Marina Hotel breakfast buffet includes different kinds of bread, cheese, pastries, Foul, eggs, Saj sandwiches, fruits, desserts in addition to many other yummy dishes and drinks.
Activities you can enjoy during your stay in the Marina Hotel include swimming in the pool or in the beach, tanning under the sun, walking on the beach and walking on the side walk beside the garden in addition to sitting on the balcony and enjoying the view around you.
You can also take shisha on the beach. There is a small shisha shop beside the beach, one shisha is for 3.5 KD and they serve shisha until 11:30 in the evening.
These are actually the activities we enjoyed but other activities you can enjoy include getting a relaxing massage or spa treatment, using the gym, fishing, playing baseball on the beach and some other things. It just depends on the interests of every person.
Food ... yes food! Vacation is never a vacation without food. Other than the daily breakfast buffet, we tried two buffet dinners, one pool bar lunch and one room service menu dinner and we will share our food experience in the upcoming reviews.
As for the pool, it was amazing especially in this hot weather! Once you get there, the guide gets you towels and offers you the menu if you want to choose any drink or snack.
The pool was so clean and not crowded but we couldn't swim after 6 pm because it got dark and in the absence of the sun, you feel so cold.
As for the beach, we wasted three days without swimming in it because of a signboard that warned guests from the presence of jellyfish in the water but when we saw others swimming, we got the courage and tried the beach the last day and luckily, there weren't any jellyfish!
We think that as soon as there are no more jellyfish in the water, the signboard should be removed in order not to confuse the guests who love to swim in the beach.
In general, our experience was a very pleasant and unforgettable one so thank you Marina Hotel staff for making our vacation one of a kind.
We all need a vacation from time to time and if you don't want to travel, try having a short stay in an hotel and as for us, we highly recommend Marina Hotel.
