Despite lots of the restaurants and facilities being closed during Ramadan this was still an excellent hotel. Fantastic pool and beach resort. The kids loved the lazy river as did I. If I was to stay in Muscat again it would be here.

Beer on a comparison with uk prices wine more expensive but food onsite expensive for an evening meal unless you can manage to eat around the pool bar.

Perhaps we were unlucky. Fab breakfast and lucky enough to see turtles hatching. But food and drink are frankly ridiculous in their pricing and the service in the Tapas restaurant was truly woeful.
