    Breakfast was nice, we were provided with the standard queen room. Send regards to receptionist. Shati Al Qurum district is worth your attention.

    Very good

    I had bad experience with the staff during the stay, they are not responsive at all unless you keep tips to be served nicely. Bad laundry services with very high rates ($30) for preesing of one thoub and gutra!!! Executive suite with broken coffee maker machine for three nights. No adapter for 3 nights. I really got creasy, don't ask for Duty Mgr cause he won't reply (so busy!!!!)

    Nice

    One of your Receptionist was excellent - actually all of them were very good but this particular lady stood out. I had visited Muscat before and had eaten at the Italian Restaurant at the Shangri-la Hotel. I had no recollection of the name of the restaurant but this particular lady found out the name and made the booking for me - she went out of her way to do this and to provide a level of service that was over and above what I expected.

    Little bit shabby, rooms etc could do with updating and maintenance.

    Great

    The outdoor facilities, namely, garden and pool area. The check-in process at the 4th floor club desk was swift and efficient.Great sea-view from the room. The impressive entrance lobby and atrium. Very good selection of bars and restaurants.

    Bathroom had seen better days and could do with a refurb. No stand-alone shower. At busy times service very slow at outdoor "Tomato" restaurant and also around pool area.

    Comfort, quite, good service and restarurant, good for kids

    Beach side was poor, i understand that it is open to the public but the hotel can put some facilities on the beach to serve its customers.

    Guest rating

    My room was on the second floor and had a nice view of the sea. However even though I am a platinum member with Holiday Inn (same group), I was not allowed access to the club floor lounge and there were no upgrades or any perks allowed. I think that the Holiday Inn group need to examine their policies regarding an upgrade because in any other Intercontinental hotel there is always an upgrade but not in this one. This hotel just does the minimum needed and their customer service is not very friendly or helpful.

    One needs to ask for a higher floor because the hotel has a nightclub on the lower level and you can hear the "thump" "thump" of the drums as late as 3AM in the morning. The concierge does not have information about restaurants and tours and the hotel is very unhelpful about giving information about independent operator tours. There is no doorman to help with your luggage which I thought of a strange for a five star hotel

    Great pool facilities and big spacious grassy areas - good for children. Beach access was good. Being able to get a room with two queen beds was excellent. Proximity to shopping centre.

    Location and access to the beach was very good. Nice gardens at the rear of the hotel.

    Hotel is too expensive when compared with similar hotels in the gulf region. This seems to be the case with hotels in Oman. Although Oman is beautiful and the people very freindly, I would not return to Oman based on the expensive nature of hotels etc when I can get much better deals in the UAE.

    Perfect

    Everything that you would want from a sea facing Club room. It is an excellent venue. Comparison with other hotels of this standard in uae is favourable, although more expensive. There is a sister resort around the coast "Palace" but there seems to be little reciprocation. My wife and I were stopped from walking in their gardens because we were not 'house guests'. Lots of shrugging of shoulders by Mr Jobsworth! The food is spectacular and good with lots of choice. The pool and location of the beach/sea is easily accessed. The concierge is awesome in his knowledge of everything local. I would recommend hotel unreservedly for the standard of accommodation that my wife and I booked. Highlights outside hotel - Grand Mosque and Dolphin watching

    Just the lack of reciprocation by another hotel in the group. I may not have been a house guest at the Palace, but I was certainly a guest of InterContinental. *** Another plus was the ease of booking an extra night and the subsequent reduction of the cost of the room for that extra night! ***I changed from Mountain view to Sea view throughout

    The main advantage of this hotel is its location on the beach....the garden is beautiful...the sea view rooms have a fantastic view over the garden, beach, sea....very soothing and relaxing...

    The hoel was built in the 80ies and seems outdated, even though it has been refurbished...the bathrooms and balconies are very small...you cannot sit on the balcony, even though it s a sea view balcony, the service is not as good as it should be in such an expensive hotel
