Just came back from my tenth visit. Food is good, the rooms are nice and clean, the facilities are wonderful, but what makes this place so special is the people that work there!!! Can't wait to get back!! Arky Crook

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Crowne Plaza and our experience was a positive one. The staff were friendly and helpful and we had great views from our first floor balcony that overlooked the bay, somewhat in the distance admittedly. The room was comfortable and pretty standard in most regards for an international-quality hotel. We liked the location...

We had a very nice spacious room with a lovely balcony & sea view. The food was excellent, but it was the friendly, helpful staff who particularly made the difference during our recent 8 day stay. We enjoyed sun downers at The Edge, the pool bar. The sun goes down in Nov/Dec at around 4.30 - so an early start...

Our second stay at this hotel in just under 1 year. Easy drive from Dubai to escape to this relaxing haunt. Excellent food and friendly and efficient staff who do their best to please at all times. Perfect for a weekend or longer getaway. Views and scenery are amazing with sunset over the bay. Access to a wonderful beach which...

We travelled with our family to Oman for 10 days over Christmas. The hotel was clean, staff were friendly. The hotel is well appointed with a fabulous view over the Gulf of Oman. We recommend this hotel and Oman as a holiday destination.

One of the liveliest hotels in Muscat, featuring a sports bar / restaurant, an Italian restaurant, a Persian restaurant, a Pool bar & grill, and a general international buffet. I have been impressed with meals in all of them. The hotel also has two tennis courts (book in advance), two squash courts (will probably find a court without booking), ping...

Family room is great, direct access to lawn next to the pool. The view of the beach and sunset is spectacular. Pool is nothing special. Construction site right next door during our stay was unfortunate... Found the breakfast a bit expensive. Beach access is good. Overall great location for a relaxed stay with family.

We booked a weekend here because it is located on the beach and it had decent reviews. However, next to the other hotels in Muscat, it was sadly disappointing. Muscat has some very grand properties which include the Shangri La and the Grand Hyatt. The Crown Plaza is very dated and in need of remodeling. The room was small, with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Check into an elegant seaside hotel in Oman's thriving capital with a private beach and easy access to local businesses. The dazzling Crowne Plaza(R) Muscat hotel looks out across the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Oman from a lush clifftop in fashionable Qurum Heights. With a panoramic terrace, pool and private beach, the hotel is just a 20-minute drive from Muscat International Airport and steps from Qurum Beach with its café-lined promenade. Oman's main business and ministerial districts are 10 minutes away. Families and couples can sunbathe on the private beach and swim in a pool set in leafy gardens alive with bougainvillea and date palms. After exploring ancient Muttrah Souq and Corniche, you can savor a cool drink in our English-style Dukes Bar as the sun dips into the Gulf. For dinner, how about Italian, Persian, or lavish buffets on the terrace of Tropicana with stunning sea views? Business travelers enjoy the hotel's relaxed vibe and convenient services such as complimentary Wi-Fi and parking, 24-hour room service and a Concierge who can pre-arrange taxi fares. After work, you can re-energize in the Cliff Club Fitness Center, challenge colleagues to a game of tennis or squash and de-stress in the sauna or steam room with our compliments. With 200 stylish rooms and a convenient, prestigious location in Oman, you'll find Crowne Plaza Muscat an ideal hotel for productive business and enjoyable leisure time. ... more   less
