“Beautiful view... calm stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

I enjoyed the place it's like a palace, rooms are big but old.
The garden is extremely beautiful, birds everywhere very big swimming pool beautiful view.
i enjoyed walking on the beach...
Friendly untrained staff, i requested to see someone in charge many times no one bothered to call me, "No Hot water in my room" The person in charge is always busy to an extreme he has no time for his unsatisfied clients.
anyway, if you want to relax while traveling from Dubai to Muscat by car i recommend you to stay in this Hotel.
be sure you have a room with Sea view on the second floor.

Room Tip: be sure you have a room with Sea view on the second floor.

I visited this hotel in early December 2011. The hotel staff are well presented and are service orientated, Lunch was fantastic and the scenery and beach is meters away from the hotel. I will certainly be making a reservation when my family visits me this year.

A real great place to relax from the hustle and bustle of Dubai.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2011

Been to this property this November for Eid and must i quiet liked the property.Lotsa greenery unlike Dubai. Its got a lovely pool along with kids pool. The beach also looked fantastic. Since it was the holiday season the hotel looked full though not overcrowded.
We got a pool view room (and partial sea view) which was quiet spacious with a huge bed. The room was bright with a nice and tiny balcony.Mini bar had adequate stuff. Service was good.Food was excellent. For lunch we had a combo of Indian dishes which was quiet nice. But dinner was perfect with Grilled Salmon steak, chicken ceaser salad, fish n chips,baileys cream brulee. The breakfast however was a dampner n didnt live upto the standards of lunch n dinner. The bar at the pool was closed for Eid though. The property looks well taken care of and looks more traditional with the design part of it. I do still think it is a little expensive with the room rates though.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms are best for the best view of the property

It was a depressing experience to stay at this hotel and spent two nights there.
I have booked a chalet which it was so old anddirty; the Furniture was consumed and dilapidated.
The bathroom was disgusting and full of mold
The kitchen was very dirty, the air conditioning unites are dirty and noisy, the blankets and towels were torn and tattered.
The extra bed was not available despite of booking it earlier with extra cost and they have replaced it by spongy mattress placed on the ground!
The breakfast was so poor, the quantities were very limited and waiters were rude and tactless.
The internet and WIFI service were not available in the chalet !
And the last point, the front desk has confirmed that they have suspended their partnership with swissbelhotel rewards program before one week while you can see the logo of swissbelhotel on everywhere in the hotel.
I will not recommend it to anybody!

A neat hotel, good to see the "real" trees after Dubai. A Banyan tree at the entrance is really impressive. The beach is almost virgin, could not see any tourists except dome fishermen. Food was good, but the stop serving liquor after 3 PM, so order your drinks before hand. By service looked like a government owned hotel and not a private enterprise. Attitude and service could have been better!
