          • Family with children
            7.8

            We spent 3 weeks in Oman with 2 small children out of season (early may ). This hotel was just for the first night before traveling around, so we did not expect anything especial. What a surprice: The staff was friendly, interested, and competent. The breakfast was good, Most of the equipment was in good shape and well maintained, the pool, too. A good price/ value for a overnight or short stay in Muscat - close to all the shoppings you need for a further excursion.

            This is my third stay in Ruwi in the past 6 months.. This time..i was just not comfortable. The Toilet was smelling something bad even before I used.. This was brought to the notice on day1..On day2 they fixed but it recurring after a day...i was too busy with my work and did not have much time to follow-up. Fyi, I stayed in 501 and if they could fix it...it would help guests in future...Also, this time I did not get complimentary breakfast since I booked online...something..i did not like and do not agree.

            All the staff were very helpful whatever question or advice we asked it was answered. Clean towels every day and if we required more after going to the swimming pool fresh ones were in our room immediately. The chef did a yummy pizza. Breakfast choice was very good and William one of the staff always had a lovely smile when greeting you. Bar facilities were very good and the staff were spot on. We read in the greeting pack that there was a private beech /sailing club these facilities were very good.Bar

            The computer facility was inadequate (not enough p.c.'s). Could do with two computers and present service was poor and slow. Enjoyed the group at night time, very friendly but too load for the size of room, you couldn't hold a conversation whilst they were on.

            Good calm place with comforts.

          • Family with children
            7.0

            The Hotel is easily locatable as it is situated in the main road. The Hotel has a convenient restaurant. The pool is small but good enough. The hotel room was clean and mini bar sufficiently loaded. Having elderly daughters we were given interconnecting rooms. This eased a lot of apprehension of the stay and made our stay very comfortable.

            The location is very crowded and we had to face a few persons drunk. The entry to the dance bars is through the same lobby as the entrance to the occupants in the hotel. We had to face the discomfort of onlookers entering into the bar while waiting for the lift. An entrance only from outside to the bar may improve the comfort for families that may visit the hotel.

            good location, value for money with clean rooms n friendly staff n will definitely stay again if ever travelled again to muscat which on its own is quite a primitive kinda city with biggest problem of finding a taxi n dat too on sharing basis

            the satellite picture quality was not good but doesn't matter coz didn't travel to watch satellite TV ;)

            9.2

            The staff were always attentive, efficient and friendly.

            Some of the food offered needs to be addressed, but otherwise menu was quite good.

          • Single
            7.8

            The price, and the amenities provided for that price.

            Hotel staff could have been a lot more helpful for providing services pool side.

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            Although rooms and furbishing in general can look quite outdated, the room are large, the internet connexion works good and the bed is comfortable. The unique hotel restaurant offers a good choice are reasonable price.

            Noise coming from the Bar area. Until about 11pm we could hear very loud music coming from the first floor all the way up to the my room at the fifth floor! Staff was also in a slow motion mode which pushes you to double-check everything constantly. Just need to be aware of it...

            This hotel is a good value for money, but it is not in Muscat (it is about 20 minutes from the Muscat village / Port). You can also invite friends to your room, it is really very important. I've had fresh fruits in my room, thanks so much, very kind from Hotel Staff ! Nice Staff, I have appreciated this hotel !

            Poor Internet and only one "hot room" for internet (no air conditioned there). Some staff are not that friendly but most of them are really nice ! Do not go to Oman during Spring and Summer time, it is extremelly hot ! Enjoy Oman, wonderful people !
