          • Single

            Staff are, like everyone I met in Oman, very warm, friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Hotel is a little dated, but it adds to the charm. At 6' 4" I found all the ceilings to be rather low, which was a little awkward, but not enough to stop me from staying again.

          • Single

            The view was beautiful, pool and private beach cove were fantastic. Health club facilities are excellent, very clean and well-resourced. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. The complimentary shuttle to shops and souk is an excellent service.

            Beauty salon (female) is rather cramped and manageress rather abrupt.

            The situation is excellent, the buffet breakfast brimming with choice and the three restaurants are all good fpr lunnh and dinner.

            The hotel was far from full. If it had been, the size of the swimming pool would have been inadequate. To be fair, there is plenty of room on the beach. I also question the pricing of a double room for single use being the same as a double room used by two.

            The location was excellent with a great view and atmophere. The pool bars and facilities were reasonable. Breakfast was good. Room service good. The staff were friendly and helpfull.

            However the room size decor and lack of comfort was extremely disapointing concidering the cost I was, as was my wife very disappointed. The room was like a 30 dollor bed and breakfast. Bed was small, the bathroom dated and shower was over bath. Not at all suitable for a family of three.

            The hotel location was excellent, in the center of Muscat and there was nice beach on the side. The room was clean and spacious and we got the room on the top floor with sea-view as we requested. There was complimentary fruits in the room when we arrived.

            Hotel staff are V.attentive and helpful. The location is excellent. View from the hotel is very nice. This property has access to their private beach and a public beach nearby which would make this an ideal location for all season. We enjoyed our stay at Crowne Plaza...

            After checking out our pre-booked city-view room we wanted an upgrade. Many rooms were being refurbished during our visit and hence we couldn't get an upgrade.

            Crown Plaza has one of the best gyms in Muscat and the gym opening hours are fantastic. Great location, beautiful views over the Qurm beach, short walking distance from an amazing mile long beach which is ideal for a morning run, combined with extremely friendly and courteous Hotel staff made the stay an absolute bliss. Having visited Muscat well over 50 times in the past 3 years and having tried most of Muscat Hotels this is so far the best.

            The pretty winding streets amongst the gardens, white villas and blue ocean of the Al Qurum area. Lovely pool facilties, private beach and view over the main beach & Al Qurum corniche. The room had a very comfortable king size bed, with lots of pillows, a nice new lcd tv and very nice bathroom. Lovely staff and service generally, and the food was excellent. Only 10 minutes drive to the souqs at old Muscat and 5 minutes to the Al Qurum City Centre Mall.

            Our booking was mucked up and they gave us a smoking room instead of non- smoking and a city side room when we had requested a sea view. One particular staff member didn't listen and she tried to put us in a horrible back room overlooking a fence and driveway. But the other staff were really great about it and we were eventually moved to a nice room with a sea view -so there clearly were rooms available. Be persistent if you aren't happy and they will eventually deliver. Its a shame when one person lets down the hotel, as the rest of the staff were lovely.

            The view

            There is nothing really bad about the hotel, it is dated and would have been great when it was built back in the 70's / 80's, however, it now needs a complete overhaul. Apart from the a stale, damp smell throughout the corridors . The food is reasonable, breakfast/lunch which covers the standard hotel buffet/club sandwiches. The 'Drakes' British pub is pretty bad, reminded me of a social club I went too back in 1990, and this is the only entertainment in the place. Overall, the hotel is reasonable priced for Muscat and the views/location are good and if you want entertainment at night you can always go to the Ramee Hotel which is just down the road.
