We chose the Intercontinental hotel in Muscat for our Eid break away from Doha and we were very happy. The hotel is not very young as it is a 70s building renovated a few times, although it features a big pool area outside with huge garden and 2 swimming pools where it is really nice to hang out and relax. Quite disappointingly though, no beach.
The staff (all omanis) are overly friendly and helpful and would bring drinks poolside. The food at both restaurants is good, breakfast is huge. The hotel is also located in a very nice area of Muscat, just a few hundred metres from the Royal Opera House. There is a nice bar (the Trader Vic's) and an English pub where you can have a beer, do some dance and watch matches. Overall, our stay was very pleasant.
