we came un announced for a lunch in Sohar and found the beach hotel. the food was brought within the hour and we where with 6 of us,it was one of the better experiences we had on our 10 day trip in Oman. what a nice food and very tasteful. you should not miss this place.
Spent the day using the pool, not been here for a good few years but was greeted warmly but reception staff, 1 actually remembered me....that was a surprise! Beautiful clean pool and grounds, pleasant and relaxing. 5 OR for the day, clean towels, and the pool bar is available.
I stayed in this hotel for three nights and found it to be very pleasant. Sea beach front and the pool side view are beautiful. Food is good and the staff is very helpful. Strongly recommend to stay in this hotel when you are in Sohar.
As a family we really enjoy this hotel. The food is good, the rooms are good and the staff are excellent. I especially like the pool side bar, especially for sundowners. The pool is really good and the hotel is right on the beach. There's not much to do outside the hotel in Sohar, but we only ever come to get away from it all anyway.
Beautiful beach hotel in Sohar Oman. Right on the gulf of OMAN. Very classic hotel in incredible shape. Everything is manicured and maintained to a tee. Beautiful pool facilities overlooking the sea. Very nice restaurant. They actually serve alcohol after 2:00PM at the pool bar and restaurant. Prices are reasonable and the food is great.
Sohar Beach hotel is situated by the side of Arbian Sea. You can take dinner by the side of swimming pool or green lash lawn. We had a dinner by the side of sea beach. Dinner was good. We took chilly chicken dry, Paneer & Chicken item. Taste are good. But environment was nice as we can enjoying waves of the sea during dinner.
The hotel looks really nice, large gardens, good access to the beach, this though has its pitfalls, sometimes the beach is like a race track with 4x4's racing up and down. The pool area was well spaced out and every evening spent at the pool bar with really friendly staff. Not much on offer food wise but wasn't too much of a problem. My room was really spacious and comfortable. Now what's wrong, the batteries for the air con were worn out and leaking, I told the reception staff but seemed to fall on deaf ears. So I replaced the batteries myself. I had laundry service, but when I went to the reception to tell them, their response was you should have called, I said the phone wasn't working, which again went unheeded. I had to extend my stay for a week, upon finding this out I asked at the reception about this "that won't be a problem sir" was the response, imagine my surprise when the receptionist told me I had to leave 5 days early as they were fully booked, I did speak to the manager and he did apologise but left me without a room to stay. Luckily the Radisson Blu next door had rooms. Would I return, yes probably as it a friendly hotel but the reception staff could be a little more helpful and LISTEN to what's being said. Oh be very careful using the pool toilet, when wet the steps are VERY slippery, you have been warned.
A disappointing stay at this hotel. No working wifi, and failed to help to sort it out, cold a/c, staff more worried about not being paid than helping you enjoy your stay, disappointing restaurant, generally looks and feels dated and inhospitable
Sorry to write about negative things in the hotel but might the feedback incentive the management to improve .. First of all the food is very bad also the service at the main resturant is bad and slow .. It's seems that the waiters not professional .. The rooms and the bathroom are very old the need to do a comprehensive renovation of rooms in a modern way , the bad odors comes from the bathroom , no hot water , they do have a new building attached to the hotel but still they did same mistakes regarding the room decoration looks old not modern , rooms Lois too boring !! The Wifi is not working for my entire stay ! They have new Resturant in the new building unfortunately the food is very bad also the ambiance is bad very boring !! To sum up my review , every thing in the hotel bad except the location .. Hopping the management do some thing about it!
Sohar is charming and the hotel is well located in the city center and at a beautiful beach. One things which was really very annoying is the Air conditioning which is freezing cold in the whole hotel. It is below 20 degrees in the lobbies and corridor so prepare to cover well when heading to your rooms from outside. The AC in the rooms has no control even when you increase the temperature set point or lower the fan speed so the only option is to turn it off. The hotel management should fix the AC problem, they should increase the temperature throughout the common areas and fix the controllers in the rooms. This will increase the guests comfort and save the management money from lower energy bills.
