Excellent hotel. Very good installation and amazing staff. The hotel is outside Muscat so a bit far for city centre,however, there is a free shuttle from hotel twice a week. By taxi is veryyyyyy expensive. If you book this hotel try to book half board otherwise prices in the restauran are about £50 average per person excluding drinks. Beverages are very expensive too. They have a happy hour though in the piano bar. My trip to Muscat was a bit disappointing because even though the hotel was excellent the prices of drinks food and excursions were very overpriced.
We called the Tanoor restaurant to celebrate my birthday. My mother and father were treated to less than what I would call their "5 Star" standard. Then Mr Ahmed Al Habsi took the phone from that employee, resolved the issue and we decided to give it a try. So, we arrived and we requested a table for 5, they seated us at a table for 4, they waiters assigned to us were inattentive towards our basic needs such as a drink or water glass. Once again, Mr Ahmed Al Habsi came to just ask about what we needed. In conclusion, I would like to commend Mr Ahmed Al Habsi, and was the sole reason of coming back to your establishment. The true definition of Omani hospitality.
A charming stay in the resort and in Oman
The hotel lies in a secluded but charming location. It offers a truly relaxing environment. We went there with our 8yr old daughter and I believe she had the time of her life. She enjoyed the pools, the lazy river, the beach and it’s clear waters, the beautiful colored fish that come and swim next to you if you have something to feed them, the crabs that crawl on the rocks nearby during the day and play hide and seek in the sand with you at sunset, the horse and camel rides, the collection of seashells she gathered, the water slides, the boat trip to go watch the dolphins and then go snorkeling, and the variety of restaurants available in the resort. To top it all, the weather in this time of year was simply amazing, day and night; could not have been better. A stay I would recommend to all families!
The amazing beach of this area is a piece of art Explore the resort with all of its facilities Enjoy daytime beach and have an Arabian night ceremony Sit by the see and get inspired Although when i got there the hurricane had destroyed part of the beach but it was a mice experience
Beautiful resort with private bech
We stayed at Al Bandar in November 2019 and had a fabulous time. As always, the staff were great. Not our first time at the resort and definitely not our last. Resort is set on a private beach with 3 or 4 different pool, several restaurants and a couple of cafes. It’s far enough from the city to have the much needed feeling of being secluded yet close enough to go to town everyday. I particularly liked that there is so much for both kids and adults to do. I also liked how good the food was. TIP: if you have kids, ask for a room that is close to an elevator. Getting a room at the end of the building would result in a lot more walking that one would normally like. If you are getting a terrace room (Ground Floor), get one away from the open movie theatre as it can get busy sometimes. The only reason it doesn’t get a 5 from me is that some of the furniture in the rooms (e.g the armchair) could do with an update.
