Sometimes, I wonder in how much details IHG hotels go to provide comfort and pleasure to its guests and prove the best value for money in the hoteling competitive market. And what a valuable the loyalty membership of Ambassador is - an instant upgrade to an Executive luxurious Suite from club room booking - two balconies with full clear view...

We stayed here one night and it was a nice hotel, but the rooms and bathrooms need updating. The pool and poolside service were great, but it is not a place to come if you are looking for a beach resort as the beach was not a place you can lounge at. The breakfast was above average but nothing remarkable,...

This hotel is beautiful. The pool area is great, love that it has beach access. The whole hotel is very clean and pleasant.

This is very much a business orientated hotel - not meant for beach/holiday travel! Breakfast was average, rooms were fine but the bathrooms were exceptionally outdated, restaurants very expensive (in U.K. - £8 for a beer). The pool is fine but the sunbeds are tacky and plastic. Unfortunately there was considerable building work next door which we were not informed...

Love the Intercon in Muscat. We are club members, and love having a drink with the great view of the sea. Muscat is such a laid back town, and this is a great location to get where ever you need to be. We had to attend a high school sporting event. It took place at a golf course in town...

I really like IHG and Intercontinental. Usually it's my first choice whether it's business or family. However, this InterCon Muscat has one of the worst service ever.

We arrived at around 9am and got the room immediately. The hotel was beautiful and clean, the room was huge. The wi-fi worked well in the room. The staff was very helpful and friendly. You will most probably end up using taxis as Muscat is not very suitable for walking so the location is not that important.
