    Nice for relaxing with a cocktail
    Actually I was hesitating for going there but it was much more better than I expected. Very romantic place for sundown viewing and having a nice cocktail. Only problem it can be a little hot if the sun is still there. I wish they dont close at 00:00 and we can stay at night more. Lovely atmosphere. Service staff was average, can be better btw.

    My Experience in Monkey Tale
    Environment: The environment is furnished with an amazing view with well arranged chair arrangements. The energy is quite positive and relaxing. Staff Service Catherine the hostess deserves an award for exclusive customer relations. She was warm, supportive and willing to help all through my stay. Drink Quality: I had cocktail 🍸 and the taste is next to none. Keep up the good work guys. Note: Why don't you give a discount to Government workers. I work with Qatar energy and I expected that I should have up to 30% discount like other places. Pls consider this in order to attract customers from the Government sector, especially Qatar energy.
    Dear Nonye, We appreciate your feedback and are delighted you enjoyed our ambiance, cocktails, and Catherine's service. Will make sure to pass your appreciation to her. We'll certainly consider your suggestion for government worker discounts. See you soon! Best regards, Monkey Tale Team

    Amazing place to hangout!!!
    Me and my friends went for a night out and then we realized that one of our friends is having a birthday in a few days, so we asked if they got cakes or at least any candles there. The staffs were really nice, they assisted us the best they could, and they came to our bday boy and said happy birthday!! Thanks to Affan with his stunning service, we had a great night there! Will definitely go back! 🩷 The view was nice, the drinks were great! Food is not too expensive, the portion is huge.
    Dear Arachapon, Thank you for choosing Monkey Tale Beach Club for your night out and we're thrilled to hear you enjoyed the view, drinks, and our friendly staff, especially Affan. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! Best regards, Monkey Tale Beach Club

    Great service and a beautiful view
    It’s my first time in Doha and a friend had recommended coming here. I was seated at one of the cabanas outdoors facing the beautiful sea/buildings view. A young lady by the name of Jennifer came to check on us and was extremely welcoming and helpful. She took the time to tell us about her beautiful country Argentina and gave us great pointers. This was all last week. I went there again 4/3 only because of her welcoming attitude. She makes the place pleasant. She recognized me right away and came to greet me and my friends Thank you for your great hospitality Jennifer. I will be back again soon.

    Swim, good food and vibes
    Food is incredible. Perhaps one of the softest beefs I had recently in Doha. The atmosphere is very nice as well. Best time is around 5pm, can still swim and see the sunset. I had an issue with my drink but it was quickly resolved with the manager. Fast and professional.

An utter disaster from the moment we stepped foot inside the place.
Security left us for ages in the sweltering heat while they were signing us in and took forever to locate our friends we were meeting inside.
It was like we were checking in for an international flight such were the security checks!
Once inside, beware the waiting staff who understand very little English. I asked if they served slimline tonic to go with the gin and when they said they did, proceeded to pour regular tonic from a can. When I showed a picture of what I wanted they then laughed and said they did in fact NOT serve slimline tonic.
The barman then accidentally spilt the entire G & T all over the bar top so I had to wait for another one. Also when ordering drinks for my friends, there would be drinks missing from a round and it took 8 minutes from the time of the first drink arriving to everyone being served all the correct order.
Later, despite asking specifically for Beefeater gin all night (which in itself was QAR50) , I was given a bill for the more expensive Bombay Saphire gin (QAR60) and when I refused to pay for their (in my opinion deliberate) mistake I felt threatened and intimidated by their waiters and was forced to pay the higher rate for something I never asked for.
Please be very specific when ordering drinks, about what particular brand of alcohol you want.
They will automatically charge you for the higher rate or even in my case when you have stated which brand you want, just charge you more anyway.
Its genuinely the worst customer experience of my life and one I don't wish for anyone else to repeat so definitely avoid like the plague.

This is undoubtedly one of the worst place I have been to in Qatar.

I visited them on a Friday afternoon with my husband. I was told that they aren't serving their brunch in the month of Feb-2022 while I booked the seats, the previous day over the phone. The receptionist who booked our table clearly stated that our booking was from 4pm - 6pm. Since, this was the first time we were visiting them, we assumed that they may have slots for maintaining covid protocol capacity etc. which we respect.

We entered the venue at around 4pm. We were directed to the bar chairs by one of the receptionists. Since we went to relax in the weekend afternoon, and 99.9% of the seats were vacant, I requested them politely for a more relaxed seat. To much of my surprise they refused my request stating that all other seats apart from the bar chairs, are booked for bigger groups.

Initially, we accepted their narrative but 30mins later realized that there were a few comfortable relaxing seats occupied by single or max 2 people who the staffs appeared to have good relations with. They greeted their special customers in a way different than us.

We then moved to a more relaxed seat when all our plight started.

We were chased by their rude staffs back to back thrice asking us to vacate the seats we occupied. Since this was a highly annoying experience I have ever had in my life, I asked the 3rd staff if the comfortable seats costed more than the bar chairs to which he could not answer.

I then asked him the real reason behind such a misbehavior especially if they assumed that we would ask them anything for free of cost? I was almost on the verge of leaving the premises when this guy went and discussed with his manager and came back apologizing to us. And remember, all these happened when not even 10% of their seats were occupied.

What an agony, we went to relax and have fun, rather had to return with such a bitter experience. It did spoil our evening. Note, until we left the venue at around 6:30pm, they were not even 30% occupied so, I wonder what made them do this kind of a behavior with us? Racism maybe!

I hope the Manager reads my review and realizes what they are doing for scarring their image.

I would certainly refrain from visiting MonkeyTale/ Grand Hyatt Doha Hotel & Villas in future and will also restrain my friends from visiting them either. This is completely appalling!

Awful experience from the first minute!!!
We arrived around 10 pm with booking, after register the ID they allowed us to enter without showing table or place to stay, we approached the bar to order and one security guy came to us in a rude manner to say we have to go to the table, after we explained him that we didn’t have it, he left without assisted us, when we tried to order drinks bartender didn’t want to sell from the bar. (No service at all, just rude answers from all staff) as we didn’t get any drink and service we decide to left on the spot.
It was our first time, but we definitely are not gonna come back and will not recommend to anyone! Its definitely not friendly place to be a 5 star hotel.

Thanks to the staff, our experience was always amazing and we started to go more often to MoneyTale. The place is cozy and pleasant. Especially Mr. Mohammed which has excellent customer care skills. He is always anticipating our needs and making our stay more comfortable as is attentive and permanently smiling. Great job! Keep it up, Mr. Mohammed. Thank you. Definitely we will come back!

If you are someone who likes outdoors especially the beach and would like to chill (drink) at the same time then Monkey Tale is the best place for you to go in Doha. They have a warm and accommodating service that is unprejudiced of your race or gender. Prices are reasonable and the overall ambiance gives you a tropical feel. Above all, being attended by Mohammed (The Moroccan Guy) who is evidently on top of his game in hospitality and ensures that you and your friends are having a great time would definitely make you return.

As soon as Monkey Tale is open after quarantine, it has become guest unfriendly place. Our table wasn’t cleaned for more than an hour, all waiters were passing by without even looking at us, so we should sit and wave at least for 5 min before someone’s notices us. And now they implement minimum spent for 2 hours slot of 150 QR, which is impossible to reach for one lady who wants to enjoy sun. I would not recommend to get the same experience as I had.

Apologies to hear about your unsatisfactory visit to Monkey Tale Doha. We have passed on this feedback to our management team who will ensure the comments are relayed to the serving staff. In relation to the minimum spend, in order to keep Monkey Tale Doha no entrance fee for all guests to have free adults private beach access, and enjoy all of Monkey Tale's facilities, a minimum spend was introduced which is available on all food and drink which is mentioned at the time of booking and in the confirmation messages. All guests are permitted to reach the minimum spend, so that there remains no entrance fee for all our guests, rather than charging for day pass access. We hope this explains the minimum charge further but If you have any remaining questions, please don't hesitate to reach us on our website monkeytale.me. Thanks and we hope to see you again soon.

It’s one of the places with the coolest vibe in Doha. I have visited this place more than 3-4times now and I absolutely hate interacting with the staff. They are super rude, I would say they aren’t approachable at all!

Also, if you are planning to go during the evening.. be aware of the noise pollution from the jet skis and smell of pollution.

I really do hope you are able to arrange a proper orientation for your staff on how to react to your guests. :)
