Stayed with my husband & 7 year old son at the Al Waha part of the Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah. You can really tell that the Al Waha is more geared up towards younger families as this is where you will find the Little Turtles kids club, play ship & kids pool. The facilities are great but could possibly do with another 1 or 2 restaurant options at this part if you are staying for a while & like to stay local. You can use the restaurants at the Al Bandar & that has a great little ice cream/cafe place below the book shop but it is about a 5-10 minute walk from your room if staying at the Al Waha.
Muscat was a bit of a suprise, for some reason I didn't think it would be that big & the mosque was spectacular. I know Muscat is currently cleaning up after the storm that hit recently but it all looks like the touristy area's & hotels should be sorted by September (ish).
I would go back as this hotel is beautiful, especially if you are used to european standard hotels! and everyone seemed very friendly and it is still quite a bit cheaper than Dubai for the same standards.
