My husband and I recently stayed here for our most recent Valentine's getaway. If you are having trouble choosing between this hotel and the Sohar Beach Hotel I must recommend this hotel as the best hotel in the area. It may not be in the best location but the beach in Sohar is not really something to write home about and is sometimes coated with some sort of black residue (oil?).
The rooms are fantastic, the food on offer is amazing, the staff are very kind and polite, and it offers more facilities than any other hotels in the area. We ate a special 3 course Valentine’s meal and were very impressed by the quality of the food. The breakfast was also delicious.
We wanted to relax and that is what we did. There is a spa, with a steam room and sauna and the pool (all free for guests to use) is wonderful because parts of it are shaded. The hotel also offers a bowling alley (OMR4 for half an hour) and a games area where you can play pool, snooker, table tennis or darts (free for guests).
It is perfect for a weekend stay but I think you would get bored quickly if you stayed for longer and you weren't planning on exploring Sohar and its surrounds. If you are on business in Sohar, this is the only place I would recommend!
