Comments on tripadvisor.com

My boss showed me some positive comments on our hotel (i mean the hotel where we work for). It is on www.tripadvisor.com, one of predominent online travel agencies, of course, in the world. Our hotel is currently rated the 3rd among 52 hotels and resorts, it's great, man...!

I read all the comments posted, it's kind of reading a blog, real, true experience and frankly. Only one post is little bit negative, but most of them are happy with our service. They also like the location, the mood, the facilities and the food. They claimed we are all friendly and helpful. Hmm... make me pretty glad.

Here is one of the comments, posted by a traveller from Kuwait City. This is absolutely not PR campaign, nor advertorial, it's not such a kind off bullshit editorial, it's trully honest comment or suggestion from the guest who had a wonderful experience at the resort.

just check it out...

"Just returned from Bahrain last night. I stayed in this hotel after searching many sites for resorts in Bahrain. I choosed Novotel Al-Dana after reading the positive reviews about it. As soon as we arrived to this hotel we knew we'll enjoy our stay.

The staff were very friendly as all Bahraini people. We were given a nice room ( No. 2309) which was spacious with a balacony overlooking the beautiful and large swimming pool at one side and from the other side you can see the Arabian Gulf.

I booked this room from Expedia and they didn't mention that the breakfast is included but when we checked in they told us that the breakfadt is included and will be served daily from 6:30 am until 10:30 am. Don't miss the breakfast as it is so delicious. Try the specially made waffles. The lunch buffet was also nice ( about $18 for an adult and $10 for a kid).

The hotel beach is nice and very clean and you can rent boats and jet skis. There is a kids area full of games beside the swimming pool.

They also have a spa where you can relax and have massage but don't pay before you are 100% sure you'll do it because you'll not get your money back.

The gym is nice too. The hotel is not in the city center ( 10 minutes driving) but if you are looking for a place where you can relax then visit this hotel."
