Third time here- and it’s as lovely as I remember it. The landscaping, the food, the service, the pools...the number of activities you can enjoy with or without the children guarantees you’ll never get bored here. The water sprinklers area was my son’s favorite and I always enjoy their beach area because it has such a lovely view. Although a little pricey it’s worth every penny and I’m always happy to come back here when I get the chance.

I called and made a reservation to have a lovely night and asked to have shisha and they said most welcome
Imagine we drives 15 Km away from city but once we reach simply they said we have to seat out side in summer night in a desert without any cooling system!!!!!!
Is it really 5 stars hotel
Honestly is dose not worth this stars when you don’t respect people !!!!!
If you require good service don’t use this hotel ever

This is a great place to visit and family friendly. Breakfast is excellent. Hotel is a hike from the airport so its actually cheaper to rent a car and drive during your stay. There is nothing close to tbe hotel and of u keep using taxis u end up paying alot over the period. Google maps didnt work well at all but oy in preview mode which means silent navigation with no voice directions. Maybe car gps is better

We just visited the Al Bandar hotel located at Bar al Jissah resort just 10min away from the country’s capital Muscat. From the very first minute we felt warmly welcomed by the hotel staff and this feeling remained until the end of our trip. Our room was super comfy and provided everything a 5-star resort should provide, including a few extras! Superb exterior pool and beach relaxation area with comfy loungers and a pool bar to serve to serve all with food and drinks. The lazy river is an absolute must in order to relax and just float below the palms trees. We had 2 treatments at the resorts’ spa which left us relaxed and rejuvenated. I would recommend to anybody to stay at any of the 3 hotels included in the resort either if they want to just relax within the resort or if they want to further explore the country’s famous nature as the resort is organizing various excursions with guides and transportation. Hidden Jem: there are over 12 restaurants and bars within the resort with different cuisine to try!!!
