Architecture and equipment class, very quiet. Active offer of activities was missing, the selection small. For example was diving only basis in nutmeg possible -1 hour drive! , snorkelling hardly. To relax very good. The area is fully developed, therefore in the surrounding area large construction sites-but no noise, only the walks very limited. read hotel review

New and quiet hotel, very good furnishing and friendly staff. Beach only outside the complex top, beach 300 meters away, very stony. Beware of the additional costs, partly very high (for example drinks). read hotel review

We booked the hotel, because private tauchbsis, golf course, etc. Recruits. Unfortunately this was not the case. An external diving we should own organisation 1 hour back and forth to the hotel. The golf course is far and wide nowhere. The shopping mall is also not available. The ' private ' beach is a construction site and on the bottom with thousands of sea urchins covered. The hotel complex itself is very affectionate and beautiful. Our room was very spacious and decorated up to date. The bathroom was also huge. We had a very nice, large terrace. The swimming pool ... was also very nice and clean kept. There was really no faults. Unfortunately, there was also the food not really good and the staff at reception either very friendly. We have for ten days booked, are however from boredom and what we had been promised after three days left. Shame about the beautiful rooms, but you can't really, but also nothing at all companies. The nearby Marina had become extinct as. The offered schiffstransfer after muscat was also not detectable. Lots of construction works, still here to climb. Furthermore, for certain a nice hotel. Currently we can not recommend. read hotel review

    Note: extremely delicious! A kitchen the one star rating. I personally in the kitchen - and here you can really eat from the ground - perfect I can only say. The bbq evening a dream - fresh fish, scampi's and much more the assortment of food and drinks. Restaurant air-conditioned-we have however the restaurant-terrace preferred because it is summer;-)

    We were in the suite 315 a dream, big bed, extra living room, gr. Bathroom with huge shower, walk-in closet, 2 tv ( for those who need it), large couch on the balcony and a table with chairs, and the best-the nespresso machine! There is nothing like a nespresso espresso Room service in the suites to times per day

    Within 30 kilometer is not much-but who peace and great service, as well as delicious food searches is right at home here! The beach is within 5-minute walk reachable or you can with the club car -shuttle bus for free At the end of 2012, other smaller shops, boutiques and cafes open. If you are looking for a longer stay plans should perhaps a 2 daytrip to Dubai with plan. The hotel is here on site very helpful.

    Here it is missing at nothing-great pool ( go go in the sea baden) with jacuzzi and separate baby pool Loungers, protection from the sun, etc. At the beach: loungers, hammocks, cushions xxl, strohsonnenschirme, free drinking water and fresh fruits in between - wonderful Recommendable: neoprene schwinnschuhe -it is a sandy beach but if you into the water it was a bit pebbly.

New hotel in newly konzipiertem ferienresort

The hotel is in a Ferienressort consisting of Marina and apartments and possibly times a few shops. There are apparently still further hotels in addition to. The holidays complex architecture is beautifully landscaped. There is no cheaper ' mass' there involved, as these apartments very luxurious feel, as well as the new hotels u. S. Armani -hotel amongst others in first class range. When we were there, the hotel was weak and the whole complex as good as empty (since brand new) or the apartments just finished and are not occupied. The furnishings is tastefully modern. The rooms all have ... balcony direction pool / Marina. ( approximately 50 rooms) the gastronomy is varied and of high quality. You sit in the open as in the interior area quite nice. It makes a young new impression ( loungige music). There is a fish restaurant at the beach, which was nicely located. It had unfortunately only open for lunch. There is directly in the department a small beach section, the small and unspectacular is. A bigger and more beautiful beach ( for omanische standards) is fish restaurant. This one drives also past, when you arrive. Here was in the remaining the directions from DERTOUR brilliant. Without this, we would have certainly not immediately found, since as well as nothing the signage is. You need as anyway in the Oman A rental car. Apart from that there is in the perimeter of 30 kilometer purely nothing at all. I recommend the hotel exclusively for a short relax -vacation. We felt felt at ease. The only thing real shortcoming was the unmotivated staff at the reception. You were not even welcome, although nothing was the matter. When checking out we were also only the bill ' hingepfeffert '. The room they wanted again into account, even though we a vouchers from DERTOUR on arrival submitted. read hotel review
