The hotel is large and busy, though we were pleasantly surprised with the fact that it is quiet once in the room and if you eat inside, as we did both nights, it doesn't feel too crowded at all. I agree with the room tip - we had a room with a terrace onto a courtyard which was very pleasant indeed. Breakfast was fine, though very much caters for the international traveller so my husband was a little disappointed there wasn't more in the way of Middle Eastern cuisine. Having said this, the spread was good and I'm sure there'd be something for all tastes. The carpark is big (which was really important to us driving a 4x4 for the first time, which we'd just picked up at Muscat Airport!!). There are LOADS of things to do within a few hours' drive if you have a vehicle. We found it hard to find the hotel at dusk, as the maps we had didn't really tally with the road (welcome to Oman!), so maybe familiarise yourself with the location a bit better than we did...
