“Disappointing stay”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

We had gone during Ramadan and the whole place was almost empty. We started off on a bad note with the complimentary pick up coming to pick us an hour after we landed despite our reminders to them. The room was clean but that is the only decent part. There weren't enough towels provided, no napkins or floor mats at all in the room. The TV didn't work and we had to call housekeeping some four times to fix it. The AC was right on top of the bed and an uncomfortable blast of air throughout the night made us switch it off finally! There was no breakfast buffet and we were shown a small menu with limited things in limited quantities we could have as complimentary. Unfortunately, even that we ordered was cold and seemed stale. The reception didn't have anyone who could speak or understand much of what we said in English, so it was all really very annoying. Overall, we didn't really get a 'resort' experience at all with most of the facilities being closed or simply bad.Very disappointed.

Very clean, comfortable beds, lovely sea views. Nice pool area too. Definitely worth considering if in Salalah.

Fantastic, we were a group of 5 so we had a 3 bed villa with sea view and its cheap.......77R per night for all of us !!!!!! each big bedroom had its own ensuite, large lounge/dining area. The service was great, we needed a kettle...it was there in 5 minutes, the sofa was good but a couple of the springs had gone, that was replaced whilst we were out ! its right on a beautiful beach, and has a really huge swimming pool. As the other reviewer said there were not many people about when we went, I think a lot of the villas are rented by companies.The Restaurant is good, not fantastic but good. The postion is also great right next door to the Hilton and less than half the price !
A great find and would not hesitate to recommend Samharam to anyone.
We drove down to Salalah, from Abu Dhabi beware there are not many hotels enroute, plan well otherwise you might be stuck like us in a grotty Guesthouse...and trust me they are REALLY grotty !

Absolutely fantastic location, right next to the (not so public) beach
We got a room facing the sea and the view was fantastic.

Rooms were clean & spacious and well maintained.

Apprently there were not many guests around (due to Ramadaan, I was told), otherwise the place might get a bit crowded (especially since one can drive all the way upto his room)

Couldnt get time to try the restaurant.
Front office staff were courteous and helpful.

A bit away from the city, you need own transport arrangements.

Room Tip: Try for rooms with sea view on the first floor (the best one is in the corner, has sea view from bot...
