    Another wonderful stay
    Always a great place to stay. The rooms are impeccably clean and well appointed. The breakfast buffet has a great selection of tasty items. As always the staff are friendly and service prompt. The hotel is in a marina area with varied shops and swimming. We are never disappointed to stay at Rotana.

    Offseason
    Booked seaview, did not get same and could only get changed next day. Lost item in room, even if described and told exactly where it was, they said not found. Besides these annoying errors, the staff was friendly and it is a nice place, even when we went out of season. Seems like they might have felt it was offseason so they could relax.
    Martin, gb3 night romance trip
    Good 6.0
    Hotel rooms were really nice modern and worth the five star rating. Staff and reception and baggage guys were great giving a tour of the resort. It was eid while we were the beach restaurant was buffet only which was expensive compared with the normal menu. Dress code was applied for the Silk Road restaurant which I think is over kill considering it is one of the only restaurants in a large half empty resort. Beach is closed “due to currents” this may be true as waves were large but I think this is due to clearing seaweed and under occupancy of the hotel. Stayed for three days and this was enough as there isn’t much to do in the area and the resort has some closed restaurant and areas.

    Amazing
    We really enjoyed our stay and felt that we were well looked after by the courteous staff who were attentive to our needs. The room was very clean, cozy and a good size. The hotel itself looked quite picturesque. There were lots of nice touches to make our stay all the more enjoyable. Only slight problem was that the beach needed some cleaning we felt and that there was some construction work being done nearby.

    Hot Resort on Arabian Sea
    Magnificent 5-start resort right on the Arabian Sea. Just getting going in Oman but emulating what you'd expect in Hawaii. Opened in 2014. Sprawling Complex with private beach and Life guard and very large Swimming pool too. See photos of the campus. I parked my SUV under a roof in their lot. I drove to Yemen for a full day trip (3 hours to the border). Lots to see in town. In Salalah near airport is a bazaar with incredibly low prices on local crafts and such.

    Disappointing experience
    It turned out to be a very disappointing experience here, we had a 2 hour wait to get our rooms opened and then we got it opened but we didn't have a key for the room and had to leave the door opened. They then gave us another room the next day super late into the day. The amenities were also poor with the hair dryer sparking up and before I got an electrical shock. Overall, I wouldn't recommend.

    Beautiful Salalah!
    This hotel was a gorgeous place for a relaxing getaway. It has a beautiful beach with absolutely stunning sunsets. The rooms were clean and well-kept. Staff were friendly and helpful. I had an oceanfront room (block7) and it was very quiet with a lovely view. There were enough loungers by the pool and tons at the beach. The staff at the breakfast buffet work hard and the food was good. Most tables are only for 2, so finding one for my group of friends was occasionally a challenge. The food and service at the Silk Road restaurant was outstanding. We ate there several times during our stay. The pool restaurant at lunchtime had good food but extremely slow service. It was also a little strange that there was no pool service as is the custom for most resorts of this style and in this region. We had an amazing half day tour with Azuz from @salalah4tourist He is local and knows the area so well. He took us on one of the most fun tours I've ever done. Driving through mountains, seeing/driving on/swimming at two beaches, petting camels roaming on the mountains, trying camel meat from a local place, shisha, etc. beautiful experience. I highly recommend. We wanted to do a snorkeling tour too but no local companies would do this. They were only doing diving trips. Great resort, beautiful place to visit. There is nothing really at all around, which is peaceful but tricky if you want to get out of the resort. I really definitely worth a visit!

    Disappointed
    We arrived in salalah for a relaxing weekend getaway but found we were constantly frustrated with the level of service at this hotel. Upon arrival we were frustrated at the amount of time it took to be greeted by a staff member. We were ignored by the men working at the door and no one even offered to take our luggage or direct us where to go. After finding our way up to reception with our luggage, a friendly female staff member checked us in. Then she sent us back to the entrance to wait for a buggy to take us to our room on the beachfront. After waiting about ten minutes, she came back out and explained there was no transportation to take us to our room so she guided us to our room herself which was pretty far away from the lobby. We carried our bags. As we entered the deluxe oceanfront room we booked, we were overwhelmed by the fresh paint fumes which were very, very strong. We soon noticed that the floor was filthy with dust; most likely from the painting and we had to wash our feet off and wear slippers. Our balcony was missing patio chairs and the mini bar was non existent. Chairs were brought to the room and the floor cleaned following our requests. However, the mini bar was not stocked as we were promised. Basically, having both travelled extensively to many 5 star hotels in the past, we were shocked that this Rotana is rated a 5 star hotel. We experienced too much miscommunication and too many disappointments during our stay to ever consider returning.
