Upgrade has greatly improved rooms and food much better and competively priced. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. We love the hotel because it is very quiet during the day as many guests are on business

Great pool area

The pool area was great. Breakfast not included and very expensiv, however just a few minutes away there was a number of cafes and small restaurants. Enjoy afternoons on the beach - stroll around, watch hundreds of fotball games along the seaside.

We stayed 14 nights and Loved this Hotel

I read the review before I travelled and some scared me.. Honestly its a perfect hotel to stay in. We stayed for 14 nightsso we do know . We stayed in the Club Room. Buffet Breakfast -Great with a huge variety The Executive Lounge was perfect , Marie (the pefect host) looked after us so well and was always so kind and helpful. Hotel on the beach with long beautiful walks, safe, clean & helpful. We loved the Omani people they are so friendly. Harry in the pub was so nice and helpful. Just go and stay- See for yourself.

A good place to stay in Muscat

I got an upgrade at a reduced rate on arrivel to the Business Floor which includes free breakfast and access to the business lounge. Free snacks are provided and free alcohol for a time in the evening. The rooms were of no more than average size but comfotable. All rooms have balconies but they are too small to use. If hiring a car at the airport this hotel is not easy to find; there are a number of roads from the airport to Muscat and the hotel is only signpoted on one. The grounds do run down to the beach and it is some miles from the port area of Muscat The hotel has extensive grounds with tennis courts, squash courts and pools and they are not overused in the daytime as this hotel is largely a business hotel used by both local and overseas business people. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. I would sray again.

Älteres Hotel am Strand

Das Hotel ist eher älter und dies sieht und riecht man in den Zimmer. Renovierungs bedürftig an vielen Stellen. Pool nicht sehr sauber. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und versuchte immer Best möglichst zu helfen. Wir hatten leider ein Zimmer bekommen oberhalb der Hotelbar welche jede Nacht bis 2 Uhr morgens laute Musik abspielte und dies auch sehr gut hörbar wahr. Versuchter Zimmerwechsel wahr vergebens da das Hotel ausgebucht war. Preis- Leistungsvrhältnss stimmt nicht überein, man kriegt nicht das, was man von einem 5 Sterne Hotel erwartet. Frühstücksbuffet sehr lecker.

Excellent location at the Sea

I've come to this hotel quite regularly. Not the newest place but very well kept and maintained. Large rooms, excellent service and staff is really very professional, friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, there is a huge construction going on next to it. The pool area had to be reduced and the noise - thank god only during the day - is quite annoying. Despite this fact, the prices are still quite high. Once this construction is finished I will definitely go back as I like the location and the friendly treatment.
