This hotel is located in a panoramic place; it has a wonderful view with a direct access to the beach. The family rooms are clean and wide enough. The Edge pool side bar serves all day drinks and cocktails. Swimming pool is clean and cosy. There are different restaurants: my favourite was Tropicana that serves an abundant international buffet all...

I spent several days here last month as part of a group at the end of a busy organised tour of Oman. The days at Crowne Plaza offered me the chance to relax, feel valued and gather my thoughts about the country and what I had seen. In my experience, the staff were welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable. One of the...

Now this is a great hotel that does service very well indeed. The entrance hall was a little dated, but dont be put off because everything else is great. We got checked in by a really lovely girl called Neal (?) who was a great example of how a front desk should be, including her lovely offer of an upgrade!...

While I was unlucky enough to stay in a room without a view, as it was a very last minute booking, the view from the terrace restaurant is fantastic. If you book more than 5 minutes before arriving I am sure you would be able to get a room with a view. Food is fantastic. British fare for the most...

The hotel is well located with nice pool and private beach. Room was well appointed and very adequate. The experience was made special by the attentive staff. Those serving drinks, those greeting visitors in the lobby, those cooking seafood barbecue and so on. Worthy of special mention were Mehadi in the lobby who was always on hand to help with...

Bottom Line Up Front. You get what you pay for. CP Muscat is excellent value. Kids off to university so we wanted a quiet break in the sun. The Crown Plaza in October did not disappoint, temperatures got up to about 30C and hardly a cloud was seen. Unusually for Muscat the hotel has its own private beach in a...

Had the privilege of spending 7 nights at this fabulous hotel recently, probably the best hotel experience we have ever had.

The staff at this full facility location were excellent. I have been to many hotel properties, and I have to say that these were the best trained staff I have encountered. The hotel itself was clean and offered a full range of facilities and services. Highly recommend.

A great location and probably brilliant for a short holiday but in my opinion, too expensive for a business trip. There's great facilities but if not using them then not worth paying the premium. Room was small, pub downstairs was fun

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
