I have stayed a number of times in this hotel and would certainly return, although it has a number of drawbacks. It's a dry hotel (no alcohol available) and although that's not a big deal on a business trip, I would think twice before booking it as a holiday hotel. It's situated 300 metres from the lovely Qurum Beach which is beautiful at sunset. (The Omani Fine Arts museum is next door and is worth a visit if you can find it open - it seems to open and close more on whim than according to its published timetable.)
The hotel staff are lovely, extremely polite, helpful and obliging. They are obviously well trained. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The real letdown is the restaurant. Breakfast and lunch are fine - the buffets are good and plentiful. The evening meal is the real issue. The restaurant is dark (black walls), underused and so has no atmosphere. It's underused because the choice of food, which never seems to vary, is poor and the quality really doesn't match that of the lunch. The service in the restaurant, though friendly, is not perfect, with regular misunderstandings about what's included in a full board booking, and not everything displayed on the menu is available. I do think that with a little attention and TLC, the management could turn this into a nice evening venue. My preference, despite my client booking me on full board, is to eat elsewhere in the evening. If they get the restaurant right, I will add a star to my review!
There is a multiplex cinema 200 metres from the hotel, and there are quite a few other restaurants around, albeit most of them serve fast food. There's a rather half-hearted shopping centre up the road and the hotel is within a long walk/short taxi ride of Oman's splendid opera house.
