WIth review of the guest from this webstie and another website i was planning to visit the place. I recommend this place to my friends and we total of 3 familes with young children and infants planned to have night stay in sunrise resort. But it went disaster. The road to the resort is little risky and we enjoyed the ride. There were some good view on the way to the resort. We finally reached the resort by 4 PM. We were given 3 rooms near to the resturant. We have to wait for some minutes for the reception guy. He just hand over the key and showed in the map how to reach the room and no body were guiding us. He just told about the dinner and breakfast timings. As it was in the mountain there is no mobile coverage. There is mobile coverage in the reception only. We went to our rooms on our own. There we faced the next problem. In one of the room Television was not working. They didnt fill up the sugar and coffee powder in the room. Our room floor was full of dust and i have a infant. They dont have intercom nor we can not contact them by mobile. So we went all the way back to the reception. Then they changed the television and cleaned the floor. They informed that they refilled the coffee poweder but when we checked we found that they didnt refill and when we asked them they said that coffee powder is out of stock.
The room was good as it a newly built one. But again the problem with bathroom. Though the bathroom were new after some time all my friends and myself found that there is a foul smell from the bathroom.
There was a play area for the children and our children were happy in playing with that. But the games are made in rocks and there are many chances for the kids to get hurt.
Then the time came for dinner. It was told that they provide Buffet dinner. When we reached the restaurant we found that the restaurant is closed and the same guy from reception came to serve food after some time. We were the only people were there to have dinner. The food was very very basic and they cooked with one peice of chicken and fish for one person little rice and dal . The quboos was like chips. They just kept the food on the table and disappeared. We were waiting to ask them for alternate food but no one turned up. We got really upset with the dinner and when we told the reception guy we didnt like the service he started to speak with us in a rude manner.
We asked for camp fire which they charge 5 OMR. We had some good time in the campfire.
The breakfast was nice. It didnt have much option but we have good breakfast.
Overall we had a bad experience. I dont understand how the other person has good experience and we had a bad experience. Its not only me had bad experience. But even my other two friends didnt like this place at all.
The resort is not yet completed and they have a very long way to go.
As of now i will not recommend this hotel to any one. We had a very bitter experience and i feel bad as i brought two friends of mine to this useless place.
