Stayed here for a night 3 weeks ago. The room was not well lit. After taking a shower, the bathroom got flooded and all the water came out into the bedroom. When I told the reception about it, they said that it was pretty common in their hotel for the bathrooms to get flooded and that they will repair it... More

We stayed two nights in this so called resort after a 10 days roundtrip in Oman. We were looking forward to end our trip in a nice hotel but were very disappointed. The overall infrastructure needs urgent fixing and restauration. Here some examples that we faced: -pool bar existing but not in use -pool water "brownish" -beach bar existing but... More

Before they had philipino band which was excellent, but even without , the bedrooms are spscious , but basic and the beach offers peace and tranquility looking out over to group of islands. Food is reasonable... More

Stayed here for one night, it was distinctly average. On the plus side, booze was served , dinner and breakfast was good and plentiful, overall good value for money. On the downside, the place needs a major refit, rooms are tired, the resort looks like it's returned from the apocalypse, and it takes ages to get anything done (waited 20mins... More

It is a middle range hotel and small resort with a swimming pool and access to the sea with a restaurant. The prices were so high and not suitable for the services. The good news is that the hotel has a jackpot and safety for children and families

The place is just one and a half hour drive from Muscat. We went there for a quite weekend and were not disappointed. We had booked a sea facing chalet. The room was good with a well stocked mini-bar. However, the price of the soft drinks and water in the fridge was many times the normal rate. So it is... More

Massive disappointment staying with this hotel over Eid. This used to be a dive hotel but completely ignored the little things needed for divers. As simple as late check outs on the last day to enable the girls to shower after diving and making sure that the rooms were serviced during the morning while diving and not in the afternoon... More

The place is a disaster. Everything was dirty. The food choice is terrible. We couldn't swim and tan at the pool so stayed at the rooms terrace because we didn't feel comfortable. My wife was the only one wearing a normal swimsuit. And everyone was starring. Everyone was swimming with there clothes on. * Food was not being refilled during... More

Overall the resort is in poor condition. The pool area is disappointing and the pool maintenance poor. The rooms are functional but poorly stocked (no tea/coffee making facilities etc). The grounds need a lot of renovation/renewing. The biggest shock however was the price hike from one day to the next 3 - it was over a national holiday and the... More

Travelled with a group of friends, check in was quick and efficient (at midnight) but the room was in major need of renovation. Severe damp in the room throughout our stay. All hotel facilities are in need of renovation. The included buffet was pretty good, although the bar/waiter service was slow and often incorrect. The location for access to the... More
