Great welcome, handy location next to a beach, caring staff and good food! I was welcome as an Ambassador, Bar was closed due to Ramadan, but there was reasonably priced cans in the bar fridge. The building is ageing but management keeps it going. I liked it!

The Crown Plaza is a hotel somewhat stuck in the eighties. Service good but rigid,decor clean but un-inspiring. Breakfast buffet routine and tasteless,my bedroom excellent but balcony area in need of tlc. Room service slow and their "executive lounge" where you can have breakfast,afternoon tea and evening cocktails lifeless........... Of course if you are part of a convention probably perfect... More

This hotel is pretty decent for a family stay. Nice rooms, nice pool and bar, and a very good breakfast buffet. However, this hotel isnt something extraordinary. If you want a relaxed vacation, just go there and chill out at the pool/pool bar...

Lovely pool clean rooms and friendly staff. Even has it's own beach! Food a little disappointing in the tropicana restaurant with a limited menu and average quality salad buffet starter. Easy access and lovely views across the gulf. For tourists don't come during June or July very very hot and cannot go outside!

We stay at this hotel each time we visit Muscat because of the wonderful views (to mountains and sea) and access to the private and public beach. We can highly recommend sundowners from the Dukes bar terrace. While it may be a little tired the rooms, hospitality and location are great.
