i have spent my birthday this year in Shangri-la al jissah resort and i must say that my family and i had a great time. The room was standard like any other regular room of a 5 star hotel however, the facilities and amenities were superb. This hotel/resort is intended for the enjoyment of kids and kids at heart. Their swimming pools are fantastic and safe for kids and adults like me who doesnt know how to swim. There are alot of activities or pool that your child can try. The lazy river and splash is perfect. I enjoyed working out in their gym bec it was nearly complete and the view outside the gym is just perfect, imagine doing threadmil while looking at relaxing view of nature(alot of plants and i think jacuzzi). The beach was private meaning it was open to guest, we had a great time strolling during the sunset and sunrise. The breakfast was nearly perfect as well, There was just an issue where in i was given a dumpling that was made of shrimp even though i informed them twice that i am allergic to seafoods. Good thing i just took a little rice like size before my wife said that the orange color was shrimp and not a carrot(they insisted that it was vegetable). I had a a little itch but not too much,good thing we always have meds. Anyway, the chef was kind and apologized, the head chef talked to me and apologized as well and said that the next time we visit they would treat us to dinner,😅 not sure if they will actualy do it. Our stay in the resort was great we enjoyed it alot and would definitely come back given a chance. Well recommended to everyone esp to families with young children.

Great place to chill out. Good cocktails though cocktails are not included during happy hour. Pizza is great...good crust...freshly made with prompt service. You can expect to spend around 10-15 omr per person for a cocktail and a meal. Great ocean views.

1- after checking in we found the room has strong smell like wet carpet then we asked to change the room. They gave us another one still smelly but less than the first one. The balcony wasn’t clean , the curtain has spots 2- the restaurant is crowdy and the new rules because of COVID causing long queue, this we faced during breakfast and dinner. The food quality was less than average! 3- it looks like there is new swimming rules not allowing people to wear cotton but no one told us about it during reservation which we were not able to swimm during our stay! 4- reception are not answering the calls .. i called 3 times but no answer 5- we've bought an offer that includes breakfast and dinner in Al tanoor but we were surprised that al tanoor was closed !! quality of the food is not the same and space was tight for the number of guests 6- they need to improve the way they react when customer complain and make sure they get the customer satisfaction which we didn’t get
