Good hotel, good beach, poor food

Posted Feb 21, 2015
Pros: Location, beach and gym
Cons: Layout and ambience of restaurants and quality of food at lunch and dinner
The hotel is elegant with good facilities, attractive gardens and wonderful beach. Gym was good and rooms clean and spacious. Similar standard to other leading hotels in Salalah such as the Hilton. It was unfortunately left down by poor food quality- unimaginative, almost entirely buffet style- although the breakfast buffet was very good.

Härlig avkoppling

Posted Feb 18, 2015 on Hotels.com
Bodde 9 dagar på detta fina hotell med fin trädgård och en lång, vacker strand att vandra utmed. Vissa dagar för kraftiga vågor för bad. Trevlig miljö och personal och bra service. Inte så många varmrätter att välja på men de ala carterätter vi valde att äta några gånger var mycket goda och prisvärda. Middagsbuffén ganska dyr. God frukostbuffé. Vi valde också ibland att äta på lokala restauranger i Salalah och i en närbelägen stadsdel. Bra gym!

Fint hotel, men ikke 5-stjernet

Fint hotel, dog virker fitness forholdene slidte. Internet forbindelsen var langsom og meget ustabil.

Fabulous experience

Posted Oct 12, 2014
Pros: Everything! Location, food, staff......you name it!
Location: Location is spectacular!
Can't say enough nice things about this hotel....the location, the amenities, the genuinely kind and friendly staff, the well appointed rooms! It's all here. The location on the pristine Indian Ocean is not to be missed. Every detail is included from relaxing lounges under the shade of the umbrella as well as spot lights giving the night time view of the ocean something very special. Details make this hotel! We had 5 delicious buffet dinners on the beach looking out at the glistening waves. Every night was a different theme so although your eating in the same place, which is a gorgeous setting, you have an incredible variety of everything delicious. The chef Fadi clearly is a very talented chef and is happy to oblige with anything you wish. The staff couldn't have been nicer and genuinely friendly. They made us feel at home in everything we did in the hotel. The staff makes this hotel and you will be sad to leave as if you're leaving family. As we stayed here for 5 nights we had plenty of opportunities to interact with most of the staff members from the room cleaners, the spa, the restaurants, concierge, as well as managers. Everyone could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Our room was well appointed, the bed very comfortable, the views spectacular! Can't say enough nice things about this hotel and highly recommend you choose here for your trip to Salalah

Nice hotel with lots of amenities.

Posted Jun 6, 2014
Pros: Appearance of the rooms, helpful and accommodating staff.
Cons: The shuttle service; I had to wait 1hr after my flight arrived due to the expectation of more people coming in - they never arrived.
Location: The hotel is about 10-15 minutes from malls and shopping. Beach is immediately available.
Only had a very short stay however, the room was nice. View of the beach was also appealing. Did observe the pool areas along with a small golf area. Access to the beach was immediate as the hotel is only about 100 yards away. Hallways were very quiet allowing for restful sleep.

Nice Hotel - Good Location, Facilities & Services

Posted Jun 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
Excellent Hotel ! One of the best Crowne Plaza hotels that I have stayed. Location is perfect with just 15 minutes drive from airport and Salalah town. Hotel interior architecture is amazing and is well designed. The rear side view of the hotel is excellent with pools, garden and the sea. The buffet dinner at the Dolphin Beach Restaurant is definitely worth a try. The ambience, food, lighting - everything is just perfect for a great dinner. The live counter is excellent. The swimming pools are also nice. The layout/ design is good and is attractive. There are 4 to 5 sections including a kids pool and a pool bar. Comparing with the excellent facilities and services in the hotel, the buffet breakfast needs attention and require drastic improvement. But for that, everything is just right. Overall, this is a great hotel.
