I made a stop-over on my way from Asia to Europe. I enjoyed every minute at Crown Plaza! Excellent courteous staff, great room, great evening buffet (seafood, including lobster, sushi, excellent cheese selection etc) and great breakfast. Pool area relaxing, with a pool bar serving cocktails and snacks. The private beach is nice, but I didn't like the sea, too...

This is a lovely old hotel in the quiet and beautiful city of Muscat. The hotel is nicely situated on a cliff looking down onto the corniche. The hotel has some nice gardens. The bar is nice with a good terrace for watching the sunset. The rooms are decent if a little old but they are clean and tidy which...

As my title mentions, I felt it was better in price and service than many of the upscale hotels in the same area along the beach. My room had a great view as well as I could walk out. I realize not all are like this but my colleagues said their room was at a standard they expected. Food was...

Very pleasant hotel, beautiful private beach with a warm ocean. Great pool area and bar. Service attentive and a great breakfast buffet. Dinner on the verandah was very good. Sea facing room was clean and spacious. Finishing touches in the bathroom need attention but nothing complaint about. Would return with wife for a break when next here on business

I have had three weeks in this hotel. It blends business needs with those of a holiday resort seamlessly. Staff are great and nothing is too much trouble. Beware the food portions sizes are HUGE and flavour and quality is excellent. You will not leave this hotel hungry.

We spent five days at the Crowne Plaza Muscat and were entirely happy. The location is just magic, the staff extremely friendly and helpful and the food in the different Restaurants absolutely delicious. The Restaurants were fully booked each night as a lot of local people from outside come to dine here. This 4-star hotel is run on a 5-star...

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza on Nov. 30-Dec. 1. The receptionists were pleasant and will welcoming; the restaurant staff were very friendly; and the gym personnel were equally nice and helpful. The sauna/ steam room area has old lockers though, so the hotel needs to invest in renovating that area. The gym has pretty old equipment except for the...

Not sure why this hotel is the third best hotel in Oman on TripAdvisor. The hotel interior is slightly dated, my room was tiny and lacked a bath. The hotel is situated far from everything and there is not a lot of life in the neighbourhood. The door to my room had a gap between it and the floor so...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Check into an elegant seaside hotel in Oman's thriving capital with a private beach and easy access to local businesses. The dazzling Crowne Plaza(R) Muscat hotel looks out across the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Oman from a lush clifftop in fashionable Qurum Heights. With a panoramic terrace, pool and private beach, the hotel is just a 20-minute drive from Muscat International Airport and steps from Qurum Beach with its café-lined promenade. Oman's main business and ministerial districts are 10 minutes away. Families and couples can sunbathe on the private beach and swim in a pool set in leafy gardens alive with bougainvillea and date palms. After exploring ancient Muttrah Souq and Corniche, you can savor a cool drink in our English-style Dukes Bar as the sun dips into the Gulf. For dinner, how about Italian, Persian, or lavish buffets on the terrace of Tropicana with stunning sea views? Business travelers enjoy the hotel's relaxed vibe and convenient services such as complimentary Wi-Fi and parking, 24-hour room service and a Concierge who can pre-arrange taxi fares. After work, you can re-energize in the Cliff Club Fitness Center, challenge colleagues to a game of tennis or squash and de-stress in the sauna or steam room with our compliments. With 200 stylish rooms and a convenient, prestigious location in Oman, you'll find Crowne Plaza Muscat an ideal hotel for productive business and enjoyable leisure time. ... more   less
