We really enjoyed staying at the Shangri-La resort near Muscat, Oman. The room was quiet, clean, and overlooked the Gulf of Oman. There were several restaurant options, and the meals were excellent. The pool and tennis facilities were very good. They even had a sports complex for kids as well as mini-golf.
The staff was friendly and accommodating, letting us stay later without charge on the last day. They also allowed us to move to the middle hotel from the family hotel without fuss.

We are very dissapointed with our stay, it was unplesant as we had to fight it out through out our stay to get the 5 star service!!!!!
We had upgraded a room with half-board & when we came in the evening we were surprised that there was no buffet & we had to adjust with ordering food. Next evening they offered us set menu & we had to fight it out to orderining from thier dinner menu. First morning we were offered buffet breakfast & from next day were told that breakfast was to order. We were uncomfertable to keep ordering, also we were told some items were not to be ordered.
And now, after we were back from the pool we were again surprised that there was no hot water. We are here with a infant & this is truely unexpectable. I was suprised that the hotel of 5 star status has no back-up. It was funny that we had to get water in a vessel & hot water in a gallon & adjust with warming water in a kettle & have shower.
The last day after our complaint went to the manager they did treat us to some special dinner.
I have to say the employees there are quiet good.

Cost of wifi, when available, was extortionate, as were any extras such as laundry services and alcoholic beverages.
Quite a bit of walking is involved getting between facilities. Definitely need a car as it's about 20 minute drive from Salalah and absolutely nothing else around.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay probably because I went 'off location' each day after breakfast - returning late afternoon for time on beach before buffet- style dinner which was reasonably priced. All food was excellent with good selections from differing cuisines.

A short break on the other coast from Dubai - very natural sitting below the mountains this is a great place to go for a break. Very relaxing and not overcrowded. Pool or beach this delivered exactly what was needed.
