Perfect location”
The hotel just 5 minutes far from Jebel Shams canyon so for us it was optimal to stay there one night. Clean and comfortable room. Nice dinner and breakfast were included. Staff is very helpful. Our stay was upgraded complimentary. Would recommend for stay to all our friends.

Stars have evaporated with altitude”
As typical in Oman, this hotel is quite expensive for the level of service. However, this one is a bit of an extreme. Actual comfort level is at most 2*, but you can find 4* for the same price at sea level. So, it seems that stars have evaporated while going up. At least, the stars in the sky are very much visible at this altitude and no light from surrounding urban development.

Stayed 3 nights in December 2016
Very nice place for a very decent price. ”
We booked this place while spending 3 days off-roading around Jabal shams and discovering the mountains. The food was a bit boring and always the same for 3 days, but at such remote location, it could be expected. Staff were friendly and always helpful. Access to the hotel requires a 4x4 as the last 9 km are on a steep dirt road.

Good fun!”
Very nice quite place at a good location. We stayed in the Arabic tents which were comfortable. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. We would have liked to have coffee or tea by the bonfire late at night but there was no service for that. If electric kettles and some tea and coffee in the room would be great.

Not worth the price charged for ”
Pros : The place is clean, location is good. Cons : Management is poor, food is average, rooms have shortcomings. Now for the deal breaker. The bed in our room collapsed when I was lying down and had the staff replace it, but the management had no clue of how to handle the situation. They were just sitting ducks. All that was offered was a sorry. Sad state of affairs. I will never again recommend this place to my friends.

Review”
The stay was great but I didn't know that you had to pay in cash at the hotel. It wasn't clearly listed that they wouldn't have a credit/debit card machine.

Disappointing stay ”
Although advertising a swimming pool , bicycles for hire ,etc. all were away for maintenance , out of order. Bathroom was not adequately cleaned , hair in the shower , etc. Per Agoda, our booking was for a bungalow with a double and two singles. reception insisted on giving us a room which did not have beds for the kids, finaly gave us a triple with mattress .. this is however not suitable to sleep in being 2 inches thick with blankets and pillows pulled from a store room outside , as they were dusty. All in all , after a day out . not a comfortable place to return to ..
