The place is amazing. The rooms look stunning and the view is just breath taking. However the service is terrible. We booked two villas and checked in late at night. There is no customer service or assistance to guests. There is nothing called proper service and the staff look really confused if you ask for any help. The place is...

We went to the renames "Muscat Hill Beach Resort" today, the first surprise was that for 3 adults and 1 child it cost 35 OMR for beach entry. A bit steep but our initial reaction was that it was worth it, especially as they provide a towel and complimentary sun block lotion. The site has been completely revamped, the loungers...

My friend and I decided to try out the new 'Ibiza Style' former Oman Dive Center. Well, the interior and set up is nice, but that is about it. Greeted at the parking; park there! Restaurant there! 'Oh, welcome you!' The restaurant was almost empty, so we were not embarrased to be with 2 adults and 6 children. We had...

A lot of work on service is needed. We had to call 3 times to get a reservation as no online reservations currently available (their web is under construction and they don't participate in any other booking website or service). "System is down, call later for reservation" We stayed for 2 nights, friday and saturday. When we approached the gate...

We went here after 10 days of their re opening. The entrance fee is 10 Rials for just the use of private beach and 1 medium sized pool. The food was too expensive too! 7 Rials for 2 glasses of Juice with a service charge. Ridiculous! We were bothered by the flies while we were eating so we didn't enjoyed...

· I've been living in Muscat for nearly 3 years and always said that what it needs is a beach with a restaurant/cafe and a bar. Finally, I went to the former 'ODC' only to find that I could have built my own bar on Azaiba beach for the price of a day at the Muscat Hills Resort! The 10...

We waited to be seated at the restaurant and were greeted with 'Eating?'. We were told that all the tables with a view were reserved. The lamb and the chicken, €34.50 each, were under cooked. The side dishes arrived after the mains had been cleared. The manager was rude and said there was nothing wrong with the food. Stunning views...

We went for a day out at the beach, 5 adults. It cost 10 rials to get in with the use of a towel and sunbed but no complimentary water like some hotels provide for a similar entrance fee. The restaurant is lovely: simple and modern. However the service was dreadfully slow, 45 minutes for a table at lunchtime and...

Visited this 15-minute away resort months back with a group of friends. Location is very accessible using private car. Entrance fee of 3 riyals per adult is collected upon entry. Water activities such as scuba diving, snorkeling, dolphin watching and island hopping can be arranged with instructor. Accommodation (who wants to stay over), swimming pool, restaurants and bar are also...
