Although the Marriot is located 74kms away from the main city, in Mirbat & frankly this would have altered our decision for booking this hotel, I am so glad we chose this property. It was the cheapest from the 3 5* hotels Salalah has to offer however i think i can safely say we had the best experience as we had an opportunity to visit the other 2 hotels looking for dinner on my husband's birthday, the Hilton & the Crown Plaza both older properties and not half as pretty as the Marriot. Hilton did not so much as offer valet and had only one dining option which was an unappealing expensive iftar buffet during ramadan. Crowne Plaza offered the same. The other option was room service. We wished we had just stayed at our hotel which had 3 operational restaurants a seafood, an international one and an arabic one with sheesha.
We booked our rooms through booking.com and due an error from booking.com's side Marriot was nice enough to offer us a free extra bed and free breakfast for 5 people all throughout our stay. The pool is magnificent and overlooks the beach. We loved the hotel so much that we chose chilling at the hotel over sightseeing the day we were checking out.
Although far from the city Mirbat features some of the best sites, the Wadi Darbat, the Anti Gravity Spot, the Khor Ruri and one of the sinkoles.
I would definitely stay here again!
