A fine resort on a beautiful beach
Wonderfully located resort, dedicated and committed staff at guest-relation and at breakfast/Mekong restaurant. The rooms are nicely furnished and clean but some items are in need of an oberhaul (e.g. wooden venetian blinds in shower). Food choices at lunch/dinner are currently limited to international and asian cuisine due to the temporary closure of the Arabic restaurant. We loved the food and service at the asian restaurant but really missed decent arabic food. Beach is beautiful, fishing activities (net hauling by local fishermen) sometimes takes place in the afternoon, including lots of 4x4 driving on the beach during low tide (although driving on the beach is forbidden - theoretically). Pool is great for swimming, though the water is not heated. On days with cold winds from the North, the water in the pool can considerably cool down. The climat in Salalah is very pleasant unless the wind blows from the north for several days in a row (then, humidity can go as low as 15%). Since there are no restaurants in close vicinity to the resort, it might be a good idea to consider either booking with half-board or renting a car. We enjoyed our stay and will be back.

Beautiful resort, very nice location, and friendly staff. Andrea, the resort manager is very present: we saw him a lot during our stay, at check-in, during to the drinks reception, walking around the resort and speaking to guests to make sure everything was OK. The pool villas are very nice and spacious: but please don’t book them if you have a small child who cannot swim! A toddler almost drowned in the villa across from ours: one minute of inattention and catastrophe was only narrowly averted. In any case the main pool is great, very large and not very busy, and we ended up not using our small private pools much. The beach is amazing and also good for swimming. Go dolphin watching: it’s a great morning tour, we were lucky and saw 8 whale sharks as well as many dolphins. Food quality is very good, particularly at Mekong (Asian): the Wednesday Asian buffet is a must. Pool/beach menu disappointing (we ordered twice from there and regretted our orders both times). Better sit at the restaurant by the beach for lunch and enjoy some nice grilled meat or fish or a salad. Would definitely go back.

Disliked: Staff & service
Great location but disappointing hotel
Good location and beach, but unfortunately the hotel does not live up to its billing or price. We were originally downgraded when we checked in, but with no reference to this by the staff or a reimbursement of the difference in price. It was only when we queried the quality of the room that they admitted this. Overall, the hotel felt a bit tired, and doesn't look to have had much maintenance work done it. For example, whilst the gardens were always looking good, the infrastructure, including beachside cabanas, had the roofs and curtains falling off. Attention to detail and cleanliness were also occasionally missed; for example, a complimentary hairbrush left in our room was full of someone else's hair. Some members of staff were excellent, but the majority missed orders or spent most of their time on their phones. The food was also very poor quality.
