First time at the Al Husn and indeed Oman. Went on recommendation of friends so joined them on their third visit. We flew Oman Air direct from Heathrow and arrived early (7.00am) to find our rooms ready and waiting! Great welcome, refreshing drinks and cold towel. Our room had pool and sea view - stunning - and the room itself was lovely and spacious. We stayed in the adults only al husn -perfect! We went to the beach every day as it was beautiful and you could go snorkelling with turtles or kayaking. The beach was lovely and private, plenty of sun beds small bar/restaurant. Turtle tracks on the beach every morning are awesome and we watched the turtle ranger collecting just hatched turtles from one nest early one morning. He took them to the beach round the corner to release them later in the day (tidal flow) which we also went and watched - amazing, made my holiday! We didn't do the pool which was just as well as the sun beds were reserved from very early morning (7.00am) but we prefer the beach anyway. Afternoon tea is a lovely touch, gives you time to cool down after a day in the sun! Little sandwiches, savouries, cakes and scones - a nice civilised extra! The happy hour is also a very welcome extra - a great opportunity to get you in the mood for the evening and your glass is never left empty thanks to the attentions of Esmereldo in particular and all his colleagues. Food was varied and great quality. You could have the buffet or go for a la cart, dress up or down - lovely and relaxed dinning and every place we ate, we had a great meal. Overall.....definitely want to return. It was so relaxing (helped by the child free option) and the food was fab. Overall service in the hotel was generally very good and it was great to see hotel management (Milan etc) making themselves available at drinks, mixing and chatting with guests. This kind of management visibility always goes down well I think. Someone on tripadvisor commented on the age of guests saying they were old - well, they are certainly older on the whole as it is a child free hotel and I don't think many 20 something's would want such a chilled holiday anyway (plus the cost!). It was fantastic going on a boat trip to find some dolphins. After about an hour we found a pod of about 60 swimming and playing around our boat - just beautiful! So, in a nutshell - a fantastic relaxing 10 day holiday and we will return! Collapse

Having been here twice before we decided to return for my partners 50th birthday. From check in to check out everything was perfect. It's hard to understand how anyone could give less than a 5* rating. The new GM Milan was very much present ensuring everyone was more than happy with their stay, he had much time for guests and shared his vision and plans to make this place even better (if at all possible). This place is surrounded by natural beauty, turtles in abundance laying their eggs on the beach, this is closely monitored by the resident turtle ranger who assists with safe return to the sea once hatched; we saw around 100 hatchlings which were released into the sea under supervision keeping them safe from birds and crabs We ate at all the dining outlets which were first class in service and quality, tapas has improved immensely and is now one not to miss, my favourite is still Sultanah for that extra special night. Breakfast still as superb as ever, I normally tire after a few days but we had 10 mornings and the choice is varied and excellent, every pallet is catered for. The staff are extremely professional with a friendly approach, well done to all. Hope to return again soon as this place is so special. Collapse

A genuine 5 star stay Official Airport taxi from Muscat to hotel approx 16 Rials in traffic. Beware of the 20 Rial (£40) per person Omani Visa on arrival for Brits and others! Welcome at hotel was very nice. Arrived at 0730, hospitality lounge available with shower, snacks, refreshments while waiting for room. Can use pool and facilities and can access your suitcase for any packed items while waiting. We requested early checkin by email, room ready by midday (usually 2pm). Paid for deluxe sea view room, adequate but not much of a view- obscured by palm trees entirely. Requested a 'key hole' view of the majestic cliffs, which is advertised as the 'sea view' on their website. Was given various reasons why this would not be available during my stay, but I would be put on some form of 'reserve list', none of which made any sense. The pool is for adults only (over 16), quite tranquil and stunning views. No floats etc available. Can get busy and slightly crowded after 10am, pool side loungers at a premium. Lots of elderly and retired couples who rise early and reserve many of the best spots, be warned! There is a buggy that can be requested to/from the beach, which is breath taking. Beach can get very warm in the day, occasional jelly fish encounters! Beach and pools provide free water/juices and Evian sprays in cool boxes, nice touch. Kayaks and other activities at the beach. Not much tipping I saw, but always gratefully received. Pool team in particular took good care of us, tipped 1 Rial per day to pool and bar guys. Al Husn pool bar good value for lunch, large falafel burger/chips 5 Rial (enough for 2 people in our case!). Only Al Husn guests can use pool and private beach, but also have access to Al Bandar and Al Waha (three hotels on one site- other two are family/child orientated resorts). Apart from restaurants and perhaps the 'lazy river', I couldn't see much reason to leave Al Husn, it's far superior. Lots of complimentary drinks and snacks available in room, replenished daily. This includes Stella and Becks beer. Spirits are extra. Inclusive breakfast a la carte menu is very good, try the roasted fish! Afternoon tea complimentary (tea/coffee/cakes/canapés). Pre-dinner drinks (cocktail/prosecco/beer/wine) included, is an outdoor social event, can be slightly awkward at times. These freebies do really help keeping costs down once you arrive. Dolphin tour 20 Rial per person for 2 hours, from hotel Marina. Many, many pods of Dolphins when visited, easy to get up close, well worth it and great views of the coast. Free shuttle bus to nearby souk available, but often fully booked. Not really practical to get to muscat in evenings due to distance, no other nearby non-hotel related entertainment. Quite secluded, but that may be a selling point for you. For the price it's reasonable, especially with the ease of direct BA flights to muscat now. But it can't really complete with the likes of Emirates palace in Abu Dhabi for example, which is similarly priced in a similar part of the world, at the time I travelled. Recommend overall, but not cheap! Collapse

We really like this hotel and have been there three times. On our last visit we had three issues regarding staff in the restaurants and bars, which we pointed out to the beverage manager, who assured us this would be resolved. We are not prepared to go into the issues, as maybe they were not very serious, however these issues did not occur on our previous visits. The beverage manager also confirmed that there were going to be a number of changes for the better of the hotel during this summer, which he said he would be sure it would improve the hotel even more. Therefore we would return another day. Collapse
