The Muscat hills resort used to be the Oman Dive Centre which I used to visit when I worked in Oman and it was basic but fine and unpretentious - The Muscat Hills resort is anything but. Prices are very high (5 star levels); we ate lunch there once only and for a salad and a small plate of very...

Spent a great day here, excellent Facilities and a location to die for! Drinks a bit expensive but well worth it - just what we were looking for for a day away from the cruise ship. Friendly staff and not over crowded - would recommend!

The old ODC was never much to write home about, but it was a hell of a lot more down-to-earth and affordable than the pretentious garbage I experienced yesterday. After paying the 10 Riyal entry fee to use the beach (which is still lovely) you can then only order from the snacks menu, which would be fine if you were...

We stayed here for 1 night last weekend. It is in an idyllic location. Novel accommodation in a ranch/hut on the beach. Each one is air conditioned and has large mosquito nets. The bathroom is novel, quite modern but open air with walls and a roof which do not meet. They are private but can hear everything going on in...

Lovely place with the most picturesque settings. Though the name has changed to Muscat Hills Resort . The place can do with more activities. The staff is very helpful expecially Francis and the Omani gentleman that checked us in. Overall a good experience will be back soon.

We just had a day pass to this beach .Really enjoyed it , nice service prompt and super friendly, from the girls at the desk to the waiters . We all enjoyed lunch ( you are not allowed to bring your own food , which was a bit of pain as the kids like snacks through the day )

My brother lives in Muscat, he arranged a day for us here. We spent the day chilling on the beach, wow what a view, absolutely breathtaking. Had a swim in the lovely warm pool, and also had lunch. Food and service was outstanding. The poor reviews are utter rubbish, try it out for yourself, you will not be disappointed.

After refurbishment we decided to visit and see what changed. The place is call now Muscat Hills resort. Looks beautiful and same stunning views. But we were disappointed by service and...
