An excellant stay in Doha.Posted May 28, 2017
This hotel is wonderful. The staff are amazingly helpful and couldn't assist enough when my back went. The rooms are amazing and cool. The pool is lovely and although close to the airport you don't hear a single plane. On another point it is advertised on Expedia.co.uk that the hotel has an airport shuttle. This is wrong it doesn't so get a cab. Hopefully Expedia will update their Web - site to reflect this.

Stay at hotelPosted Apr 8, 2017
Pros: Johnston and Ray? (the guy who checked us in). Johnston went out of his way to make sure we were happy after we told him why we weren't happy there.
Cons: Need more food options, the way you handle purchasing items out of the mini-bar. Hotel should advertise as a more "arabian" type hotel.
Location: Location is too, too close to airport.
Hello, When I saw Ritz Hotel - I assumed it was the Ritz Carlton I stayed at during our last visit. Nope, wrong hotel, there were extremely too many traditional covered Arabs - who were very loud at the reception and pool area. The staff try to hard to please versus it being natural, which can lead to being overbearing! For example, I told the dine in person no need to move the chairs to eat, he disregarded me and proceeded to move the chairs. There is no place to sit and eat together because of no food carts. I assume that is because of no elevator - only one chair in the room is high enough to sit at the desk and eat. Our view was of the pool construction area and a very small view of the pool due to the tree limbs that should be cut to not obstruct the view.

Very noisy new nightclub opened up nextdoorPosted Mar 30, 2017 on Hotels
Hotel did not deliver its promises. The Sharq phoned one day earlier to confirm my attendance and that I will have a 2nd level floor, sea view, and a very nice room. When I arrived they informed the room was not available as the previous guests had asked for a late checkout, the room view we got was looking at another apartment wall, after a further 2 changes we finally gave up. Beware there is an open air nightclub next to the hotel and the noise only stops at 02:00 everyday!

Nice hotel on the beach with excellent staff!Posted Feb 16, 2017
Pros: The service was excellent in all areas! The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The grounds were beautiful. Very relaxing hotel
Cons: I would suggest another public toilet other than the only one being in the lobby to accommodate those relaxing outside or in the bar areas.
Location: The location was ok. Not too far from the Souq Waqif and other restaurants. We walked some and took taxis some. The weather was nice enough to walk
We traveled as a couple for a long weekend stay in February 2017. The service was excellent from the time we stepped out of the taxi until the time we left. Plenty of food choices and it was delicious. The hotel and grounds are beautiful and very clean. The view of the downtown skyline from the beach is beautiful! We were able to walk the Corniche along the water, which was enjoyable. The taxi rides to the Souq Waqif were quick and inexpensive. It was our first stay at a Ritz Carlton property and we will definitely return for a stay!! Upon checkout, we signed up for the Rewards Program. The hotel concierge set up a full day Safari to Dune Bash. It included a stop for camel rides and falconery as well as a BBQ lunch by the sea. Our driver was very professional and it was a fun day!! A must do!!

Nice Hotel .. Overall goodPosted Dec 10, 2016
Clean room .. close to the beach .. great restaurants and food .. near the airport .. kids freindly place ..my rating for the staff would be 7 out of 10 due to simple issues like inability to pick up my luggage at check out or ease of checking in .. but overall experience would be rated 9 out of 10
