If you like to be in the midst of Muscat and right on the beach with easy access to restaurants, some shopping, and the convenience of walking to the Royal Opera house then this hotel will definitely do for a night. However more research is in order to compare with other area offerings if you are looking for a classy... More

This hotel is without doubt the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. it cost over 100 OMR (about 260 USD) per night which was ridiculous considering the general low standard of the place. It was generally old, shabby and dirty. The air conditioning in the room was either off or on with no control of temperature (so too cold... More

Stayed at the Al Qurum Resort for 2 days at the beginning of our holiday to Oman. This used to be a Sheraton hotel. The hotel is on the beach which can be accessed through a gate in the wall from the garden / pool area. A little quiet while we were there but we got a nice reception from... More

This is a very nice resort, with friendly staff and a wonderful location! Direct access to the beach! Great views looking over the garden pool, the beach and the see! Very quiet and ideal for relaxing. It is an older hotel but clean and maintained and has its chram with only 7 bedrooms. The only thing that bothered me was... More

Since Route 66 is the newest bar/pub that's newly opened located inside Al Qurum Resort, I expect that it would do more justice from the old bars around town. Route 66 doesn't have any business link/social media site yet so I have asked my friend if he knew any contact person for that place and he gave me the mobile... More

Muscat is spreadout so chose an area that suits your needs. I chose this for the location near the beach (so I could go for morning runs along the Corniche) and because there are a number of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel as we did not have a car (this includes the mall near the Royal Opera House...

The hotel is on the water, and I didn't have much time to spend on the beach. But it is close to a mall with Starbucks, Subway, and other stores. I thought the room was over-priced for its quality, and had to wear slippers whenever in the room because the carpet was dirty. People at reception were cordial and helpful.... More

Just returned from our October Eid break in Oman with mixed emotions - it wasn't exactly what we expected to be honest. About the hotel I've booked it in advance two months before the stay through booking.com after a week's "research". After the booking confirmation I received an email from the hotel notify me that I have to stay in... More

I am actually staying here just now (room 105) and have to say its excellent. It's Ramadan so no alcohol close by but if you are coming in you can buy beer or spirits from airport and there is also alcohol in mini bar. Close by you also have Costa, Starbucks many burger bars and even a W.H. Smith. I... More

It's not what I expected, seeing the pictures on the web. I've been a little disappointed of the external status of the building. Interally the rooms are not so bad, a little kitsch, I'd say. The external pool is conceived for families with children. From there a little metal door opens to the beach, through a few decayed stair-steps. I... More
