The hotel is lovely but quite a way from Sohar. We encountered a number of small problems which were either resolved during our stay or followed up on by the manager when we got back to Muscat. The pool is lovely and a real treat in the heat of the day. The rooms are very spacious and well appointed. The... More

A great hotel for a nice price. Fabulous facilities and service at top level. The rooms are extremely well designed and clean. Give rating of excellent (5 of 5), but they had actually deserved a higher rating for service. Due to a language misunderstanding the taxi I ordered for 7:30am did not show up. The staff was extremely quick to... More

The hotel is exceptionally situated on a high hill far out of town, but what a lovely open structure inside. Spacious in warm colors, fresh and clean, nice room, spacious and efficient. Beautifully chilled pool, large gym, three restaurants and everybody very helpful. Excellent sushi. Key point: floor around pool is not clean.

My expectations were not too high going to the Crown Plaza in Sohar. However I have been pleasantly surprised. Good hotel with helpful staff and above all excellent food (loved their themed nights and wonderful spreads). Only improvement area would be their internet speed. For the 'living out of the suitcase' executive the ability to stream video's is a essential,... More

I travel to Muscat a lot, but my clients decided they wanted me to run a workshop closer to their site in Sohar. My compromise was that I got to stay in the Crowne Plaza! It was pretty much everything you expect a Crowne Plaza to be. Comfortable, functional, polite service... The gym didn't have too much variety, but it... More

Staff were helpful, check in was efficient, breakfast was great, the only downside (beyond Crowne Plaza's control) was the major roadworks on the main highway which did cause some difficulty finding the hotel. Lots of work in front of the hotel which I believe is going to be the site of a new international airport. This will inevitably cause some... More
