Stayed in Crowne Plaza for a weekend trip in Muscat. Usually I avoid big chain hotels as they dont offer such as personalized experience. I chose Crowne Plaza this time as they were part of the Entertainer Voucher scheme where you pay for 1 night and the second night is covered by the voucher. There are 2 other very big names in Muscat which are part of the program but making a booking with them was a nightmare. Crowne Plaza booking was smooth thanks to Alina who assisted via email and phone.
So, the hotel is quite old, maybe 40 years but has gone through renovation process and now it looks good. We stayed in a wing where the rooms have been refurbished and I can confirm they were in a very nice shape. Spacious, clean and well appointed.
The hotel is right by the beach. Well it is somehow on a rock and you need to take some stares to reach the private beach which is between two massive rocks. It looks great. Check out the pictures posted by most of the travelers and you will understand.
Good location, polite and prompt staff, well appointed rooms, very good breakfast and free internet. Perfect for a city break.
The only thing that needs attention from the management is the pool which is extremely dated. You feel like in 1983 when by the pool. Definitely they need to invest and refurbish. Even the surrounding area of the pool is barren cement covered with paint.
