Great location. Overpriced and more than a little strange. Swimming pool is nuts with a rope over it.Taxi drivers outside can be a tad too full on or just plain abusive. The ever increasing gym prices are amazing for worse and worse commitment to local/regular clients. Waitering staff who have been told to dress up as Omanis is a bit... More

Stayed at the crowne plaza for 2 nights, but so wish it could have been 2 weeks Clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff (esp Mr. Dharansana at the reception) and the most amazing location. Only criticism is that the lunch buffet at the dolphin restaurant could have been better.

Stayed there for two nights. The hotel had some of the friendliest staff that I have ever encountered. Special thanks to the Mr. Dharansana for giving us a room with a view of the Arabian Sea. If I should ever go back to Salalah again, then I know for sure where I will be staying!

As a Platinum Member, I was not looking for anything special, but two things about my first day: 1. My room was not made despite hanging the request on my door for several hours and personally asking the attendant. 2. I was hungry and looking forward to the ‘Id-al-Fitr buffet at the sea-side restaurant, but was seated outside the kitchen... More

This is a great resort hotel outside the town of Salalah. I stayed here recently and enjoyed my stay. Breakfast and the restaurant food were great, and the hotel is a 10 minute drive (or a 5 OR taxi ride) to town and very close to the great Museum of Frankincense Land. The main pool was under maintenance when I... More

Excellent Hotel – Good Location, Nice Facilities and Great Service. This is one of the best Crowne Plaza hotels that I have stayed. Looks like an ordinary building from outside and is not impressive in the first look. But it is a different world the moment you enter the lobby area. The interior architecture is amazing and is brilliant. The... More
