Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tilli63 2nd Time Enjoyable holidays
Very well equipped gym. Good pool for sport swimming, very friendly staff, huge and quite garden with comfortable deck chairs. Poolside restaurant tomato offers good food and drinks all day. Hotel good located at beautiful beach. Rooms and bath very well equipped and nicly decorated. Very comfortable bed.
Only complaint - if you like sleeping with open window, depending on the hotelside your looking out, the AC and ventilation machines and/or street/car noise rather loud.
Overall a hotel I would really recommend for some days relaxing vacation.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SHDXB Average stay in Muscat
This property is outdated and needs a complete makeover. Specifically i would like to make the following points:
* Recognition for RA status is very limited
* Hotel is generally understaffed
* Snacks and food in lounge and breakfast are below IC standard, the hotel allows hurds of tourists to have a look in the hotel including the lounge so you a couple of times in the evenings we felt like a tourist attraction
* Rooms are outdated, turndown service is not there. Water and minibar were not refreshed.
* A lot of noise from the fans outside even on high floor seaview rooms
* The so-called beach access was a good selling point, however the beach is public and there are no facilities at all to go swimming there.
* Pools are OK but nothing special
* Relatively far from interesting sites in Muscat
* Concierge service was the poorest I have ever experienced. All we got was a map of the city and absolutely no other tips on where to go or what to do. Appaling.

I have to hold presentations in this hotel every 3-5 months of the year and the knowledge knowing that Miss Githua the Banquet/sales Manager is in control is a relieve to be assured that all will go smoothly as planned. Her communication with staff creates a sense of ease and openness which is nice. A smile can make a whole difference to a persons experience, and a good team working well together is a winning team.

I have stayed here on many occasions over the years, in fact it is like returning home each time. Wonderful supportive and knowledgeable staff, great food, excellent rooms and a brilliant setting. Being able to feel the grass outside, to let the sand get between your toes as you walk up and down the beach. Two wonderful pools and a well appointed gym.
And if you want the distractions of local shops, even a Starbucks you only need to walk a few 100 metres to two excellent local shopping areas.
Plus the Opera House -- just like being in a great European City.

I liked the style of the IC Muskat.
The staff at the reception was very friendly and helpful.
The garden is wonderful and quiet , if the gardeners do not work......the beach is very bright .....

Very good location in Muscat, service was also very good. Very clean rooms, friendly staff, nice and rich breakfast with nice facilities (pools, etc.) and private access to the beach. Also possibility to organize boat trips through the hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by stylo Poor at every level
1st impression - Basildon multi-storey car park - hotel can't help this, could help the rest.
Arrived early so room not ready - fair enough but why not tell me the wait would be 4 hours rather than suggest we sit & wait in Reception - we could have done something useful.
Room was awful, low floor and by chiiled water plant so extremely noisy.Service dreadful, 2nd day room didn't get serviced until 7pm when we were trying to dress for dinner. All towels not replaced which re-occurred following night.
Good point - Tomato poolside restaurant, good food & very hard working staff.
Last stay at Intercon (Abu Dhabi) only average - this was awful, will stick to Holiday Inn / Crowne Plaza in future!

It was not upgraded like all other Intercont. hotels I stayed during last 5 years. Usually, I get upgraded to suit as per Royal Ambassador memebership.

This stay at intercontinental was an excellent stay as all the staff of the hotel really cares about u :) The staff at reception was really helpful and i was checked in, in less than 2 minutes with a warm welcome. The room was excellent , well cleaned and well maintained. The room service staff was really very efficient and quick. So i would like to recommend this property and would like everyone to stay at this hotel and enjoy peace of mind.
