    Probably not a 5 star hotel, because a complete wing was being refurbished. Breakfast area outside was a bit grubby. Room was fine but was supposed to be a Mountain View room. No mountains, and overlooked acarpark and building site. Pool area very good, with sun on it all day (not all hotels in the area can boast that!) We were given a small coolbox with bottles of water in by the pool every day. Ideal location for Opera House and shopping mall. Gated exit onto the beach. Nobody seemed to sunbathe there though, and we found dead fish and stingrays aplenty.

    The Staff, the style of the hotel and value for money

    We stayed at the Intercontinental in Muscat for 2 months in 2004 and loved it. We decided to return to see if anything had changed. The staff and layout are still exceptional, which we were pleased to see. However I feel that due to the enormous number of birds around the hotel that more effort should be made to clean the bird excrement off the pubic areas, particularly the room balconies. A minor point, but took the edge off slightly.. The Club room service is exceptionally good value for money. Well done The Intrecontinental Muscat

    Did NOT get what I paid for.”

    Clean room and pleasent architecture of the hotel.

    Mountain view that I paid for was a view of the car park. Too see the mountains I'd have to lean over the balcony railing and look left to see the mountain range. :( Gym was great and well equipped with lots of Hammer stuff. Unfortunately the Sauna and steam room were busted and staff had no idea when or if they would be fixed. Not something I'd expect from a Intercontinental hotel. Will not be staying there again.

Then during warm season we can enjoy swimming, how about winter season below 25 dgrees C? Not so many visitors were staying there and I could enjoy calm environment. Bed is good and qualitgy sleepin secured.

    Swimming pool, gardens, breakfast

    Like a lot of the previous reviews one has to comment on how badly this hotel needs a makeover. the first thing you notice on entry to foyer and to the room is a smell like damp carpet. Having recently stayed in the Doha Intercon the contrast could not have been sharper. Staff need some training too - room cleaner seems to think it's OK to knock and then immediately barge into the room! Also the security guard near the Scuba centre was very rude - demanding to see key of room to prove we were guests. When we did produce the key he seemed disappointed and merely grumped away with no apology or explanation. would have to say this hotel is not 5 star in any way.

    We stayed at the Intercontinental in Muscat for 2 months in 2004 and loved it. We decided to return to see if anything had changed. The staff and layout are still exceptional, which we were pleased to see. However I feel that due to the enormous number of birds around the hotel that more effort should be made to clean the bird excrement off the pubic areas, particularly the room balconies. A minor point, but took the edge off slightly.. The Club room service is exceptionally good value for money. Well done The Intrecontinental Muscat

    Comfort, Restaurants and Bars, Swimming pool and beach.

    I had a great time at the Intercontinental Hotel Muscat. The hotel is in great condition for its age. The rooms and ambiance are awesome. The room bathroom need some improvement. The beach and the pool are fantastic.

    Resort like feel, somewhat old rooms but comfy”

    Pools, gym and close to Royal Opera House

    The check-in/out can take long, staff didn't know my room was pre-paid even with voucher presented and it has been more than 10 days since checking out and I am still awaiting refund of deposit which was a fairly largish sum. No response even after writing to them yet.

    Did NOT get what I paid for.”

    Clean room and pleasent architecture of the hotel.

    Mountain view that I paid for was a view of the car park. Too see the mountains I'd have to lean over the balcony railing and look left to see the mountain range. :( Gym was great and well equipped with lots of Hammer stuff. Unfortunately the Sauna and steam room were busted and staff had no idea when or if they would be fixed. Not something I'd expect from a Intercontinental hotel. Will not be staying there again.

    Cleaness, quiet, Easy to find

    Good 4 starts plus hotel. Compared to cost, facility is a bot poor and old. The most charming there is a good and bog swimming pool. I loved swim there. Then during warm season we can enjoy swimming, how about winter season below 25 dgrees C? Not so many visitors were staying there and I could enjoy calm environment. Bed is good and qualitgy sleepin secured.

    This Intercon was not up to the same standard as a”

    Swimming pool, gardens, breakfast

    Like a lot of the previous reviews one has to comment on how badly this hotel needs a makeover. the first thing you notice on entry to foyer and to the room is a smell like damp carpet. Having recently stayed in the Doha Intercon the contrast could not have been sharper. Staff need some training too - room cleaner seems to think it's OK to knock and then immediately barge into the room! Also the security guard near the Scuba centre was very rude - demanding to see key of room to prove we were guests. When we did produce the key he seemed disappointed and merely grumped away with no apology or explanation. would have to say this hotel is not 5 star in any way.

    By the beach, close to center, great gardens”

    Gardens, beach, animations

    We stayed there for one day but had enjoyed it so much : the swimming pool is great with some bridges, gardens are big and there was actually an amazing rich Indians wedding party, and the beach is with direct access. Shops and restaurants are walking distance, with some salsa bars! This made our final vacations days just perfect!

    enjoyed the pool for hours and quiet gardens. comfy bed, swish bathroom and excellent al ghazal pub night. top canadian covers band and decent beers and food. an excellent treat to end our oman trip. gr manager sorted our padded bar bill pronto - someone called el hadad had added his drinks to ur room bill. the word of an englishman was taken on merit here!
