This hotel is a five star experience. The rooms are spacious, especially the bathroom which is on the luxurious side. We only ate at the Al Tanoor buffet restaurant which was of the highest order with a great variety of excellent dishes- terrific breakfast and lunch. The beach front is in an outstanding location and is very suitable for young...

We were warmly welcomed back by staff who genuinely remembered us from our visit last year. Although we arrived before 9am, there was a room ready for us which was wonderful after a very long flight. As ever the room was superb, with a huge bed and plenty wardrobe hanging space and drawer space too. The bathroom had both a...

An outstanding resort far from the crowds. A great little beach and plenty of pools to use and relax by. We went for the half board option and were pleasantly surprised by the variety and choice at the dinner buffet. Room was very good and nice and quiet despite the hotels being pretty full.

We stayed here during the Christmas and New year break in Dec 2016. Our flight got us to the hotel at 5-6am in the morning, we were worried we may have to hang around the hotel until check in time, but the hotel very kindly checked us into our room as soon as we arrived. We appreciated that they accommodated...

Today is the 5th day of our stay, and I must say that we are rather disappointed. This is for us the first time in Oman, after traveling for years to Dubai. Friends recommended us to come to Oman and in particular to this hotel. First thing we were really negatively surprised is that the Al Waha hotel ( family...
