Compound Accommodation in Al Khobar
Good Evening everyone, I would be grateful for the benefit of your experience!
I've been in Al Khobar now for just over 2 weeks and am bored of staying in hotels. I was originally booked into the Park Inn which was fine apart from not having an outdoor pool. Unable to face the prospect of spending 6 days holiday over Eid sat in my room, I have transferred to the Holiday Inn.
I now have to find permanent accommodation and having viewed a number of compounds locally have been surprised at the variation in quality and price.
I'm sure that this question has been asked many times before however I am conscious that with time standards change and so.....can anyone recommend a good quality compound in Al Khobar with a sensible crowd of western expats and a reasonable social scene?
I'm a 46 year old single, british chap and have high standards (perhaps that's why I'm still single!), I'll be working hard 6 days a week but would welcome some friendly banter some evenings and perhaps an opportunity to join in a BBQ at the weekend!
Your advice would be appreciated!
