We just spent 3 nights at this excellent hotel over the festive period. The hotel was tastefully decorated for the season. Check in was smooth and our room was the usual high standard of Intercontinental Hotels. The grounds and the pool were beautifully maintained (and it is very close to the beach) and all the staff we interacted with were...

Opulent is probably the best word to describe this hotel. The fixtures and fittings are of high quality and there is plenty of marble. Service was stunningly good but I have found that in all IHG hotels. Breakfast was also excellent, even bacon was available if segregated. Location is good if you want the beach and there is a private...

Although opened in 1977, this hotel still delivers a great experience. It has undergone refurbishment over the years of course, and some may say the rooms are a little dates by today's standards, but if you value good old-fashioned quality of service, the InterContinental Hotel Muscat will not disappoint. Form the front desk to the F&B outlets, they take pride...

Two night stay with your family. As other reviewers have said, the hotel itself is a bit tired and needs a revamp. Our balcony also seemed to house the Muscat pigeon poo depot and probably hadn't been cleaned since 1995. There is also the construction work going on on one side which would be a major hassle if you were...
