I stayed a couple of nights here in June. set nicely apart on a hilltop overlooking the beach I had an excellent room with a huge balcony. Just as well since the fine for smoking in the room was a whacking OMR 50.
The hotel lives up to its star rating.
If there is a downside at all it is that the bar in the hotel is a bit of a bistro pub. Consequently, the layout is that of a dining room and it can get a trifle packed. Plenty of room on the terrace outside but during an Omani summer I am not a fan of outside dining.
The breakfast was stupendous and I ate enough to carry me through to dinner. Well worth the stay in itself.
Value for money? Well this writer is used to Abu Dhabi's prices and judged by those the CP is expensive; as a Muscat hotel, however, nothing exhorbitant
