Before booking I had read several reviews of this hotel and they were spot on. The hotel is fantastic. It is located in a quiet residential district, perched on a rock overlooking the sea. The views are great, from the rooms overlooking the sea, as well as from the various restaurants, and hotel pool. The hotel is undergoing renovation although... More

I travelled on a business trip to the ME and had a very pleasant stay in the Crown Plaza. The hotel is ideally situated on a cliff overlooking the coast line and the city skyline of Oman. It is a short taxi ride from the center of Muscat, and quite close to the new Opera House. The hotel features a... More

Perched atop a cliff overlook the Sea of Oman, the morning view more than made up for our late night arrival! Our family room had direct access to the lawn and pool area, and the three-depth pool, private beach, ping-pong and tennis courts provided more than enough variety to keep three children active and engaged for the weekend. The room... More

Absolutely great place with best rooms. Spacious bathroom and super balcony with sea view. Must try food at the iranian restaurant.

I had a room on 0 level, which means no view but Nice and fresh. Bathroom is very spacious and clean. My room was very quiet. Evening bars are Nice to sit and have some drinks with view on the sea. Diner in the graden was very Nice but you have to be very patient, as it is a long... More

Crowne Plaza is a great way to spend the weekend swimming in the pool, on the private beach, using the gym, sauna and steam room and relaxing by the bar. All this for an affordable day pass. The best part are the views. Staff are friendly and helpful. Drinks and food can be pricey.

We stayed for a couple of days on our first trip to Muscat and had a wonderfully relaxing time. The hotel facilities are excellent and the staff very helpful. Highly recommend a sea view room and watching the sunset from the beach. Only annoyance was on our last day a corporate family function being held in the grounds. The families... More

First visit to Oman, and we certainly hit the jackpot with a weeks stay at the Crowne Plaza. We booked on their 'Oman Escape Tariff' on a half board basis, with access to all the restaurants, and it is worth paying a little extra to ensure access to the separate 'club' facility, which provides snacks and other facilities throughout the...

-Location is Great! Especially if you rent a car. Everything is a 5 to 20 minute drive, unlike some of the other hotels like the Bustan or Shangrillah which are quite far from the city. -Breakfast is also very good. -The pool isn't that great but the beach side is quite nice!

If not the best, i have tried some other but if you look for one hotel in the city this is definitively the place to book, the view and the different restaurant are even adding additional more interest to this place
