The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly...we stayed 7 nights and the kids loved every bit of it. The temp was 40 degress but the hotel was not crowded with people so you always had a sun bed on the beach or the pool. Always a wide variety of food at breakfast and the buffet at al taoor... More

What an amazing place for families! After spending 7.5 hours driving from Dubai, we arrived at this kid's paradise. This place has everything that a our kids could want. The check-in process was easy. Even though we arrived after 3pm, they did not have our room ready. The room was ready within a few minutes. We booked a family room... More

We had a room with a sea view and extra bed and spent 8 days at the Al Waha. The view was lovely and to the side of the hotel which meant it was a little quieter than the pool area. I would say this hotel is more 4 star and the Al Bandar is 5. If you don't have... More

The staff at the reception could have given us more accurate information about touristic spots in Muscat to visit, I can mention the visit timings for the opera house and the closing time of Al Matrah shops. Of course, we could have checked all this on the internet, but then regarding basic touristic information, the reception could do better.
