Crowne Plaza Muscat is situated on a rock overlooking a small bay with an adjacent long sandy beach and a wonderful view over parts of Muscat. Buffet breakfast is superb, try also the Persian and Italian restaurants where you can dine on the terrace. Buffet lunch and dinner are also available in the main restaurant. Prices for all that are not cheap but correspond with what one has to expect of a 4 star hotel. Everything in the hotel is very clean, staff very friendly, attentive and helpful.Nice swimming pool with plenty of deckchairs and free towels, one bathrobe per person in the room, pool snack bar which is open till late. All in all, we had a great stay in this cozy hotel and we can highly recommend it for business and holiday stays, offering reasonable value for money.
