We flew with Oman air via Muscat. Very good airline. We had a private pickup from the airport and the driver was waiting for us just after we got through baggage claims. We got a very warm rececption at the hotel. Nothing was too much for the staff. All the staff are very friendly and helpful and try to help in anyway they can. The guys at the pool get very upset if you try to the towels on the beds yourself! The rooms are large and well proportioned with just about everything - a washing line in the shower would be handy to hang up wet swimming clothes. We had a larger room with butler - lovely lady who kept popping in with treats. We enjoyed the food although after the first week we had seen pretty much everything on the buffet. The pastas and pizzas are excelent. What we would like to have seen at meals would have been plain rice - rice was always stir fried often with seafood which is great but not every meal. The hotel is beautifully layed out with very well kept gardens. The beach was covered at high tide whoch meant picking the right times to go for a stroll but the newsletter we got each evening had details of the tides. Not sure if the sea always comes up so high we were there over a full moon. The pool and spa are very eye catching and the jaccuzzi in the spa is a great place to relax if you want more peace and quiet (there were quite a few children in our second week). All in all a great place to relax. Would certainly reccomend this hotel. I think the only really negative point was the bed - much too hard but that is a matter of taste.
