Lovely hotel and most relaxing stay but food lacks wow factor.

Just back from 7 night stay. So scoring out of 10: Rooms 8.5/10 - big, with lovely bathroom with L'Occitane toiletries, toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors etc. Nice big bed and comfortable. Ever so slightly tired furnishings though and stain on couch on terrace and unravelling rattan outdoor chair. Daily replenished free fridge with nuts, ferrero rocher, oreos, cola, beer etc. Echo what previous reviewer said about late making up of room on a couple of days. Hotel - 10/10 for the main areas with friendly staff, particularly the doormen, reception etc. Drinks reception only got busy one night during our stay - if you want a comfy seat get there by 5 to 6, drinks flowed very freely - prosecco, red/white/rose wine, beers, not sure if spirits were on offer. Nice chance to meet up with other guests. Pool/beach - 10/10 - especially nice to come back to the quiet atmosphere in the afernoon - definitely benefits from being adults only - pool and beach staff very prompt and courteous. Really appreciated the cool boxes with drinks and Evian spray. That said we also loved the lazy river in the Al Jissah - lot of fun! Sea and pool lovely and warm. A breeze got up by around 10.30 each day making the beach and poolside area really very pleasant. Food - 6/10 - we didn't find anything with any wow factor which was disappointing. Perhaps, because the hotel is catering to a whole host of nationalities, it's playing safe and bland. Breakfast buffet extensive with lots of choice but not memorable in terms of taste. Afternoon tea suffers from somewhat chaotic service - having to ask several times for our pot of tea. jam/cream forgotten. Al Tanoor basically acceptable Indian food but nothing to write home about and tables could have been cleared/cleaned much more quickly - it felt like a buffet in a 3 star hotel. Tapas restaurant was ok. We did wonder whether the waiting staff (with a handful of exceptions who were really very good) might be new to their jobs. Prices - buffet for 2 at Al Tanoor 40 rials. Bottle of wine - Eagle hawk Merlot - 15.5 rials. Meat platter for one at Tapas restaurant 12.5 rials. Shuttle bus to town - it's a half hour trip - book a day in advance if you can to make sure of a seat. Taxi into town 8 rials each way. Taxi to Grand Mosque cost 28 rials - from hotel to mosque, waiting for us then stopping twice on the way back. Tours - 10/10 - there's an information desk that can arrange tours - via Zahara Tours - excellent day out - expensive - 170 rials - but you get a 4x4 to yourself with driver and guide - well worth it to see the country if you're only staying in one place. Final point is age of guests - well older than we're used to - we're late fifties and we were well and truly in the youngest quarter, it's definitley a very quiet hotel that caters to older people.

We spent two nights to explore Muscat. The hotel is beautiful. It has an own beach, which is quite crowded and it’s difficult to get a free sun bed. The room was very nice. Service was very good. They have an afternoon tea, that is complimentary and very nice. Highly recommended for a luxurious and beautiful resort by the sea. Collapse

Wonderfully luxurious hotel. All the amenities that you would expect from a top quality hotel but the outstanding quality is the friendliness and service of its staff. No matter what the employee does, from maintenance to front line reception you will always receive a friendly greeting and a helping hand. Highly recommended. Go for level 2 rooms overlooking the beach. Collapse

I recently experienced the delights of Women's Day at the Sixth Sense Spa. I was treated like a film ⭐️Pampered, cared for, fed, body and would nurtured and nourished, my every need and comfort Provided by friendly, professional, welcoming, attentive staff. In particular Melodie who carried out my treatment with expertise. Immediately felt at ease in her calming presence. The perfect pressure, relaxing, healing, destressing, regenerating and reenergising massage. Felt the benefits and effects for days afterwards. Jean and Madeline tended to my every comfort and need supplying endless refreshments. They never left my side and we enjoyed a very pleasant afternoon on the stunning private, seclude beach. Once again inside Spa I availed myself of the various facilities on offer e.g. Sauna (either infra red or normal). Luxurious robe, towels etc supplied. All that's needed for a memorable experience is to visit this beautiful, serene haven. Highly recommend and can't praise the amazing staff highly enough. Thank you ! Collapse
Looking forward to February

We have been going to this hotel complex since it opened in 2005 sometimes twice a year staying in Al Bandar and at other times in Al Husn. Each time, when arriving back in England, we have said that “this is the last time, we must go somewhere else for winter sun” but we never do. We will be back at Al Husn at the end of February 2018. Al Husn is now our venue of choice. We have seen members of staff grow into their jobs and get promoted, we recognise them and they recoginse us which makes life easy and we are not alone; we see many of the guests returning year after year. This may sound rather pedestrian but it suits us, we know what to expect from the moment that we arrive from being greeted at the door by Yousif to when we depart having had our fill of sea, sun, comfort and the sense of being well looked after. Evening drinks in the courtyard is fine, except for the seating which can be off putting and uncomfortable but the wine flows freely and the company and conversation is usually fun and stimulating. Supper at Capri Court under the stars is worth doing and rather than being waited upon at Al Husn we always eat breakfast in Al Tanoor. Chatting to the chefs whilst they prepare our order. The buffet supper at Al Tanoor is themed. There is usually a big selection of curries and oriental dishes plus, on the other side of the room, more European fare. The barbeque at Al Husn on a Thursday night is excellent and recommended. Yes, it is an expensive holiday but this is the Middle East and you are staying at a 6* hotel. Chill and enjoy. Collapse
