I have visited crown plaza salalah many times for dinner and every time I enjoyed. Their beach front dolphin restaurant is simply amazing. I must say it is one of the best restaurants in salalah. They offer different delicious cuisines everyday and their friendly staff make your dinner experience more good.

The hotel is situated just next to the Indian Ocean and has got nice beaches. There two restaurants. The Dolphin Bach Restaurant offers daily themed buffets with excellent choice of food.

Past its sell by date, accommodation just ok, restaurant food just about passable & facilities not much, but all in all expensive, I guess because of limited choice. Good location for sightseeing though as the scenary is stunning & more like Europe that the Middle East.

The hotel was slightly disappointing especially as compared to Crown Plaza Muscat. The staff were not as friendly at the reception and the building as a whole is older.
