I was staying during the eid week during the pandemic. Unfortunately, the service was not good for the price. For example, I've asked for the massage, staff told me that they offer it but it is somewhere outside another location but didn't provide a map or exact location. I've tried to find the place, but no luck. Cleaning also could be better

Fanar Hotel and Resort, in the bedrooms there is a TV. There are no movie channels. There are no dish as Nilesat or Arabsat.. There are only some not good channels and news channels. Unfortunately, this is a 5-star hotel. If you stay in a hotel in Salalah, you will find all the channels and movies. Very bad.

Fanar Salalah Resort and Hotel, in the reception there is a girl named Sina who was excellent in her sophistication and gentle manners in her dealings with me yesterday when I entered the hotel.welldone. And today evening at the reception a person named Ibrahim, no hospitality, no generosity, only hotel policy, I think. From my point of view this lady must be given a reword.

booked for a week but they made 1 night confirmation! and I’m thankful to their Mistake because this hotel is disaster!!! I arrived 10 pm at night and left next morning! Untrained and unprofessional staff, So Rude specially OSAMA Egyptian clerk When I asked him to correct my booking or I have to leave٫ he told me you can take your suitcase and leave!!! At 10 pm night ( I’m a girl traveling alone and this was his best solution to show me the door ! Talking to their manager didn’t solve anything as he just said I’m sorry system is closed !!! *Very Important **** -There was a dust bin full of pad and bloods tissues left in my bathroom from previous guest! UNBELIEVABLE - Very Old and dirty furniture - Lot of mosquitoes in room - Tv had only 1 channel as all of frequencies was showing mbc bollywood ! - Coffe machine wasn’t working All the bars and activities which mentioned in booking are closed Everything is rusted and dirty indoor and outdoor The most disgusting part of this hotel is their Mini zoo ! Totally animal abuse !!! Horrible! This hotel deserves less than 1 star ! I doubt ppl who made reviews and were happy there , have ever been in more than 3 star hotels !!! Appreciate your time and money and energy and don’t waste it in this hotel’s rooms ! Very very disappointing and
