We stayed here as a weekend getaway when my husband visited Muscat. It is not on the beach, but it has all of the other amenities, and at a fair price. There is a nice pool and patio with a tiki hut. There is an excellent dining room that serves a top breakfast buffet indoors or outdoors. We upgraded to business class for an additional 33 Ryials per night, and the buffet was included in our upgrade. With the upgrade we had unlimited drinks in the business lounge and free happy hour wine or beer from 6-8. The upgrade was a very good bargain for us, as a soda alone can be expensive at a resort. There was a lot of people staying there and it made for good fun to mix and mingle. It is also within walking distance to other restaurants and shops. There is also a very large gym with sauna on site. You can get other services such as facials and beauty treatments as well. The staff was more than accommodating to our every need. Anything we needed was readily available. As for the room, very clean and pleasing to the eye. The phone to the lobby didn't work and I felt like it should be removed if they are no longer using it. There was also a useless wall phone in the bathroom that kept falling off the hook. I would have been happier with a pillow top mattress and fluffier pillows, but I still slept fairly well. For a city location, I recommend this hotel. It's good fun, lots of people go there and you will have everything you need at a fair price.
It was a nice stay however the staff was not very helpful. There was a car rental place in the hotel but there was not ever anyone working there. When we checked in the king size bed was not available so they put two twin beds together which was pretty bad since you can feel the divider. The toilet paper was like sandpaper.
