Time for R&R
Posted Sep 16, 2016
We really enjoyed our stay here (4 nights) which was plenty. Food was good and we loved our room. We really just wanted to mainly relax however, we never got to see Muscat or anywhere else because of the location. It's over an hour from the airport and the taxi ride was over US $120 there and $90 back (yes ripped off by taxi, we didn't know the going price which should be 30 OMR rial) This made the price of going out to explore a bit ridiculous. Forget any airport shuttle, it advertises it but there is none. This is probably the biggest downfall and they should get it sorted. Probably another issue for us was by day 4 we were ready to leave just through the sheer amount of children and large families in the pool (and directly outside our room). Total invasion on wanting peace and quiet to R&R, but we did come during EID break. Luckily our first and second days were relatively quiet but the last two were noisy. Our last day we went and sat by the beach. No kids! All up we had a great time just enjoying reading, swimming and eating.
