Lovely location overlooking sea and private beach
  • Recommended hotel

  • City break
  • April 2014
This hotel has a private beach (a lot of steps down) as well as a pool and gym. It was very friendly and the customer service excellent - we had a minor problem with the room for our teenagers which was resolved quickly and wasn't a major issue however the hotel still sent fruit and a bottle of wine to our room for the inconvenience! We tried the Italian, Iranian and buffet restaurants - the Italian and Iranian were very good, the buffet was ok but had better (long wait at cooking stations for seafood). We had club rooms and ... I would recommend the extra if you have children - in the Club lounge soft drinks and snacks are available all day and also lunch, afternoon tea and evening appetizers which with thirsty and hungry teenagers helps the wallet a bit! You can walk to another local beach and hire jet ski's as well as do other water sports so for older children is good. There is a hotel bus to the shopping malls/souk but we got a taxi (not as cheap as Abu Dhabi/Dubai) as timing wasn't convenient and the Concierge can book excursions. We did the sunset dhow trip along the coast which we all enjoyed. The hotel is a bit eighties I suppose but the location makes up for it and the room was large enough and well equipped and the location and sea view from our room made up for it. We would stay there again. read hotel review

Almost a dream hotel.

Beautiful hotel, already a bit older, but very well kept. Pleasant guests, international, mostly couples and families. Attentive, friendly staff. Rooms fine. Breakfast delicious. Unfortunately not so good, no restaurants etc.. Nearby, if you wanted to do something or to eat out is the taxi (muscat old town etc. Minutes 13 kilometer away). Over christmas/new year very busy - reserve for competition, if it denied is no later than 12 hours without beach chairs there. Many children, so if you wanted it quiet would be for another hotel. read hotel review

    Very clean with standard room types, however we took a suite with a single bed made up in the lounge area. The suite occupied the rooms at the city end of the hotel with views of the city corniche (along the seafront), sea view and city view. Suite had huge master bathroom, kitchen, lounge area and extra bathroom. 2 x TV, fridge, microwave, air con, tea and coffee making facilities. Balconies with city view and sea view
