The good: Nice hotel, clean rooms, and friendly service The bad: Needs an update and avoid the concierge - ripe-off The ugly: Overcrowded during holiday periods and service can be a bit dodgy Nice family vacation there during the Eid holidays but the place was crowded

Absolutely one of the nice resorts you should give a try. I stayed in Al-Waha since I travelled with my family and they said this is the one for that, Waha and Bandar are connected so you can spend time on beach or pool where you want. Rooms are neat and quite spacious with a small terrace, the view is...

Although the hotel is quite far from the airport, it provides a nice exclusive quiet atmosphere which really helped us unwind. The restaurants there are nice, but a little expensive (as expected from a 5-star resort). However, the pool restaurant in Al Bandar is very reasonably priced if you are looking for a casual meal. It is worth taking the...

A great resort that has everything but the kids club needs improvement. There is one lady that is really trying hard to entertain the kids but all the other helpers are just watching them and as a result a lot of kids find the club boring. They really need to get better activities. Also as soon as a child says...

I used to tell everyone that this resort in Muscat was my favourite Shangri-la resort in the world. It was also supposed to be one of the highlights of this Oman trip of ours - we had just managed to convince our aged parents to make a trip with us to the Gulf to see this Shangri-la resort we have...

Families with young kids will enjoy this hotel. Far from the city it has several fun options for the kids. Huge swimming pool not deep with small pools for toddlers. The lazy river for relaxing and of course the beach. During high season it might be hard to find seats around the beach or pool so wake up early and...

This hotel is a huge complex made up of 3 separate hotels. We stayed in the Al Waha, which is the oldest of the three. Everything about the complex is simply stunning.
