We had a great stay at Fanar hotel in Salalah. The location was fantastic and the service wonderful!

Wessam in the reception was extremely helpful in order to give us a fantastic and memorable stay!

Guiseppe, the Italian chef, made wonderful pasta for us! All the meals were delicate!

The service at the beach was fantastic! Thanks for all the help when one of us hurt the foot!

The driver who drove us to the airport made our drive a nice experience!

The animation team made sure everyone who wanted had something to do! They also made a fantastic show! The dancer and the balancer were fantastic!

Thanks to the animator who tried to learn us how to balance on a rope! It was fun but hard! We will confine practising!

A special thanks to the man working at the little zoo, he took good care of the animals and the goats were really social!

It is great with bicycles! So nice to be able to take a ride and f ex watch the wild dolphins!

Our room was so nice with a big balcony!

If there is something to improve it could be more lightning around the pool area from 18 to 19 o’clock.

I am looking forward our next stay at Fanar!

Best regards

I visited the hotel for 4 nights with a friend. We had a slight issue at check in as my reservation email stated my package included breakfast and the hotel were stating it didn’t. After some time they agreed to honour the booking. The jacuzzi suite was spacious and luxurious. Room service was good. The breakfast was amazing. Try the falafels you won’t be disappointed. I am celiac and asked for gluten free bread which was provided daily. The pool area is nice and the staff at the pool bar will make a variety of cocktails. Ocean beach is lovely however no bar for guests who aren’t all inclusive which was disappointing. The marina area around the hotel is beautiful and the free bikes and golf buggy’s make it way to get around. Visit the beach at the Rotana to see dolphins at sunset.
