Very average. It’s too far away from the city. Once you are close it the tree things changes but the ride is very long.

It's funny that after all these years I've visited the Tree of Life in my late forties although I'm a Bahraini! I suggest you visit between November and March when the weather is cool as this is in the middle of the desert and you...More

However, I was the only one there in a private car. I would not like to be there with a Coach Party as it would not be the same vibe.

The reason I give 5 stars is simply because it is amazing this tree is still thriving in an area where nothing else is. A little disappointing that there is absolutely nothing else around.

Here's the thing you need to understand, this is a tree in the middle of the desert. So I'll break it down by its main components. Desert: Its pretty hot so bring sunscreen/water. I was there in May and my cell phone overheated while I...More

First, let's set your expectation level really, really low. It's a tree (a big tree) in the middle of no where. I feel like it's one of those things you do just so you can say you have done it. So for that reason, go!...More

I would say the Mercure or Swissotel or Grand Ellite . All are next to the Seef Mall, but their prices might vary. We have the real estate exhibition from next week so the prices might go up slightly.
