                We know the hotel well as we lived in Muscat for years. Ours was a nostalgia visit so we accept that the hotel is a bit 'tired'. I'm sure some people could find things to complain about. The central location, which we know, together with the most amazing mostly shaded 25 metre lap pool draws us back again and again. There is also a good leisure pool for families.

                The staff could not have been any more pleasant! The pool area was nice and the pool was very clean.

                The room smelled enough that I needed to sleep with the sliding door open. Because the tub drained so slowly, I removed the plug cover and had to proceed to remove a giant hairball - disgusting. The sliding windows were full of the last cutomers handprints and the bathroom mirror was dirty. I also would have liked to have known before making my reservation that the beach was public with no hotel chairs, umbrellas, etc. available.

                Very pleasant staff and rooms were OK, swimming area and gym were very nice. Lots of green garden space too.

                Room rate for room only was rather expensive as were the restaurant prices. Fortunately there was a shopping complex next door which we were able to walk too and used instead.

                The bar was too British and not what I expected in the hotel. I did not expect to see people playing pool and darts in a hotel of this standard.
