I'm a frequent guest of the Crowne Plaza and it's bars and restaurants. The view is outstanding - quite possibly the best in Muscat and the private beach secluded and quaint. It also offers one of the best buffet breakfasts that I've ever had. The rooms are typical of a hotel of this calibre but the rest of the (original) hotel is a little tired and could do with renovation. You also need to pick your room well to avoid the noisy bar below. Speaking of which Duke's bar is one of my favourite locations to unwind of an evening. The food is fantastic although the service can be very slow when they're busy, which is most evenings. The hotel wifi is unstable and slow. But that said, this is still my favourite place to be in Muscat - no wonder it's so popular.
