Nicely located on a cliff top overlooking the long tidal beach stretching out towards Seeb.

Twenty minutes from the airport in light traffic.

Room was clean, well serviced and the hotel wifi was fine for our needs.

We dined in both Shiraz (pricey) and Duke's bar with the meals being of a good standard and served in good time, although it took us twenty minutes to get the bill in Shiraz.

Restaurant staff could do with a little bit more training on how to interact with patrons.

Room Tip: Overlooking the sea.

Excellent location on small cliff top overlooking the beach and the ocean with super and facilities.
Superb proactive service from all the staff, truly 5 star.
The buffet style lunch was very good but little daily variety meant it got really boring by the 5th day! We were using the conference area and the staff and facilities there were excellent. One of the best conference facilities I have experienced for many years. Truly 5 star professionals.
Overall the hotel is good for both leisure and business, with many tourists mixing with men in suits.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: High floor sea views a must

I visited Muscat solo and was worried about where to stay. This hotel is excellent. Great rooms, great wifi, great little bar area, great pool and great views. Staff were beyond helpful and went out of their way for you. The hotel is located 15 mins by car from the Royal Palace and the touristy sights. Hire a car to ensure independence. The Omanis drive well and I felt safe on the roads. Free parking at the hotel. Loved the experience. Thank you to the hotel for making me feel at ease.

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Crowne Plaza Muscat. Well situated at the end of Qurm Beach for sunset viewing with a separate private beach, and a comfortable pool, this makes for a great stay while sightseeing in Muscat. It is just a short taxi ride from the Corniche and you can easily access the modern shopping district in Dubai.

Rooms are well appointed and comfortable beds. The gym is well equipped with weights and cardio machines. The restaurants on site over a variety of options- nice Italian food at Come Prima, Persian food at Shiraz, and even a proper English pub (Duke's) with all of the standard fare and arguably the best beer selection in Oman. The breakfast buffet was excellent, with a wide variety of Middle Eastern, Western and even Asian options - and also carrying pork sausages and bacon (which were welcome after spending some time in the country).

Service is very courteous and helpful, from check in, dining , and during our stay. Definitely recommend this one while you are in Muscat.

I stayed here one night at the beginning of a 3 week business trip to Muscat. The room was very nice with a very large balcony and fabulous ocean view. The staff was very attentive and check in at 1AM was quick and painless. It's a nice hotel, but fairly old compared to competing properties. The breakfast was a very thorough feast with everything one could think of for breakfast. I'm partial to one of the other hotel chains as my status would bump me to a club room and give me club access, but if I didn't have that I'd certainly stay here again. Incidentally, thursdays afternoons everyone from the office comes here to sit on the beautiful deck overlooking the ocean and have a few beers at the end of the week.

Room Tip: I'd suggest a second floor room with the large balcony and ocean view.
