Stayed for three nights in a standard room at Al Waha. Room was clean, comfortable and a decent size. The pool and pool bar are a great way to escape the heat. Lot's of places to eat and drink throughout the whole resort.

We stayed in the Al Waha hotel which is the least expensive of the three hotels and despite a previous review posted here, it is definitely not a 'cheap package tour hotel'. Al Waha is a family hotel but also suits couples. The splash pad/lazy river were great fun and we enjoyed cooling down there. We were lucky enough to experience the release of turtle hatchlings too. The staff couldn't do enough to ensure that our stay was perfect. We will definitely be returning, hopefully soon.

We stayed here in February of this year and were not disappointed. The perfect weather - not too hot and mild in the evenings. Staying at the Al Bandar was a great choice and is recommended for those without kids. The variety in restaurants is such that you don't have to leave the hotel at all (which given its somewhat out of the way location and the infrequency of shuttle buses to Muscat is a situation somewhat forced on you). The evening buffet at Al Husn on a Thursday is pricey but to die for.

I have stayed at Al Bander Hotel for 3 nights and it was perfect. The staff were super kind and attentive, the resort facilities were well kept and the room was wonderful and very clean. I went to Muttrah using the hotel free shuttle which was a nice trip. I highly recommend booking the boat trip to watch Dolphins, it was extremely fun. On my last day I went to the Chi Spa for a Massage and it was amazing the lady who did my massage was very sweet and informative. It was a perfect relaxation trip and can't wait to go back to Oman and will definitely stay at Al Bander.

Stayed: June 2014

Stayed at Al Bandar over a long weekend in May 2014.
This is one resort that is not to be missed. Efficient check in, courteous staff, clean and spacious rooms. Excellent hotel facilities, beach and pools.
In summary, a great hotel for a family getaway.
