What impressed me of this nice hotel is the quietness that reigns. The structure is very new and functional: my room was clean, spacious with all the furniture in excellent condition.
The hotel staff was friendly and helpful.
Finally, the outdoor pool struck me: large, clean and great for a good swim.

We had originally booked in to Crowne Plaza Muscat for a weekend break on the Friday 30th November, it was the road trip from UAE and we had to delay our departure due to heavy rain in the morning, by the time we crossed the border n made it to Sohar highway to Muscat was blocked due to Flash Floods, we requested the staff at CP Muscat to cancel the booking and assist us in securing a room in CP Sohar, the staff at both the properties worked out of their way to ensure me and my family with two kids get a room there despite heavy rush on that night from the people stranded on the highway. in the processs we discovered a Gem which stands marvelously on the way to Buraimi. Night manager was already aware of our arrival as such check in was a breeze. both the rooms were very elegant and cosy, bathrooms has both walk in shower as well as bath tub. Toileteries were of good quality, In room decor was so beautiful my wife decided to take some pictures of the room. It was simple yet very elegant. They have bowling alley which kids enjoyed for a while. Breakfast buffet was a normal fare you expect in such a property. My family couldn't stop going gaga over the hotel and it has been added in our favorite tranquil location to run away from maddening city crowd. Pool area is also very beautiful.

I stayed at this hotel for a day while waiting for my visa to return to Dubai. I was wonderfully greeted by the reception manager, who changed my room immediately when the first room offered didn't convene. She also kindly printed my visa documents upon my departure. Great buffet service downstairs and excellent service by all the staff that I encountered. Very clean and safe place to stay. The only downfall was the lack of wifi in the rooms. However, wifi worked perfectly downstairs in the lobby.

This is the best hotel in the area. The staff are friendly and willing to a fault. Rooms are comfortable, clean and roomy. The restaurants are limited and food is average, but there is not much competition around. The hotel is quiet, and the pool area great, but the pool is very shallow at the shallow end.

We went there for a week end, from Dubai. Even if this hotel is not intended for tourists but more for business or weddings, it was a very good choice! There is a big and very nice pool outside, in addition to a kids pool. We could spend long time there. I have tried the health center and had a message which was just excellent! The service everywhere is very nice, without being stupidly over polite. The food was very good, fresh and I was happy, among the vast choice, to be able to eat some specialities from Oman (this is not always possible in international hotels and this is a pity).

The nicest thing was the transfer from Dubai. It was organized by the hotel who sent us a taxi. Abdullah, the taxi driver from Oman, was so nice that the drive itself was an experience. He helped us through the 2 boarders administrations and I felt just well and in security in his taxi.

Room Tip: We had a suite with view on the road where I think a room with on the pool would have been better to...
