Stayed in Executive Suite using The Entertainer vouchers. (great deal!)
We were 4, which wasn't a problem because the suite is huge and in the living area there's a huge amount of space for the 2 extra beds.
The suite was excellent, with very comfortable beds and a huge bathroom.
Only 1 downside: the room is not very ergonomic for high people. Just a silly example: I didn't see half of my head in the mirror (and ceilings are pretty low too).
I liked the balcony although it would be better if it'd be slightly larger. (in particular the one with sea-view)
Overall I liked the way the personnel interacted. They were very friendly and very helpful. All my requests were promptly met, with a smile.
As for the club lounge, I would really like to complement the hotel with that! There are 2 lounges: 1 for Platinum members and 1 for paying guests (club room / suite).
The paying lounge was awesome, personnel was always very helpful, friendly and welcoming. They also made sure there was no shortage of anything and also during happy hour they warned everyone in advance about closing the open bar.
The food was excellent, we didn't even need to go anywhere thanks to the all-day snacks available and the truly delicious evening food spread.
Moreover the happy hour (6-8PM) featured high quality spirits, beers and really good wines. Especially the red wine was excellent!
The only real shortage of the lounge is the shortage of outside sitting area. It gets crowded in the evening and there was always a wait for a table outside. But once seated you can really enjoy your drink and food with stunning views and relaxed ambiance.
So overall a great hotel to stay at! Especially in Muscat, where not a lot of hotels are available. The Crowne Plaza has a reasonable price, compared to other top hotels.
