                  Quite place with excellent facilities- good for family

                  Room rate is in high side -

                  Frankly, I wish I didn't stay at the hotel. It was a very bad experience for my wife and myself. I would only rate the hotel as poor, pooor, poor.... I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

                  Upon my arrival, the room was a complete mess, the service was so bad we couldn't get served only after two hours of waiting, if you order food to the room you only get it after an hour and you get it COLd (we ordered once). Cleanilness was a different matter...bed sheets smelled, dust all over, insects filled the room, minibar empty and filthy...my list goes on and on. If the hotel had many occupents I would say they were very busy...BUT It wasn't !!!!!!

                  As natural and SPA was nice nothing more I can add it

                  The place is good for short stay but the rooms are over priced

                • Couple
                  6.6

                  The place is so quiet. It is really a good place for relaxing and stress relief. The resort loaction is very close from the sity which would be a plus for foreign tourists.

                  The resort is located in the middle of farms. And you ll loose the pleasure if just walk out side the resort.

                  Nice big room and big pool

                  Service is very very bad, I called many times requesting a golf car to take me and my kids to the pool and every time they asked me to wait, waited for 45 mins and we walked, I was very angry and shouted to the reception.

                  Landscaping and greenery, restaurant,buggies,

                  It is displayed at the counter that there is an option for late leaving upto 3pm,BUT when I asked it was refused. There was no complimentary water when we entered the room One A.C. was noy cooling and it was boiling hot on 14th Jun 2012 The buggies were not available during the morning for what was explained as the drivers were out. The bicycles were on rent at R.O.5/-

                  taxi was requested and we were ignored

                  5.4

                  Laughing park, the buffet meals and the pool

                  Too expensive, too remote not a 5 star resort and there was hardly anyone there

                • Family with children
                  8.2

                  Different from other holiday options - You are more away from concrete and more with nature.

                  Travelling within the campus can be difficult when the facility is over-booked. Food options could be limited depending on your taste. Besides going into the nearby market area for food/provisions could be a time-consuming affair with the construction works in full swing.

                • Older travelers
                  5.4

                  The executive suite was spacious and bed comfortable. The main restaurant and buffet style food was of excellent quality. Although there were 3 other restaurants 2 were closed and the Lebanese style one never seemed to have customers so did not try it. Apart from the islamic weekend the resort was very quiet. Good to see local people using it at weekends. Accomodation well spread out across spacious grounds so good privacy. Pool well designed for both swimmers and children. Large gym which was well equipped with tennis and volleyball etc outside. All of which appeared unused so no need to book.

                  Although the resort boasts trips etc with a glossy brochure at reception as to what can be booked, there was nobody willing to explain how to do this.The resort appears to want to keep you on site yet provides very little to keep you amused. We were referred to the shop but found it had been closed for weeks and only a phone number posted on the door. The number did not answer! Finished up arranging our own trips. Resort is very isolated, even the taxi driver from the airport didn't know where it was. Without a car you are trapped and the resort will not find hire cars. Eventually we found one helpful staff who arranged one of their drivers to take us places we'd arranged, at taxi fares.It seems the main clients are locals driving themselves there and bringing their own food etc.

                  The spa treatments were extremely relaxing.

                  The Service was poor, the rooms are still old fashioned and not renovated.

                  I liked the location and the activities that were held

                  This was my 2nd time at alnahda and i think that it will be the last forst time i' ve visited it was so diffrent this time the service is sucks i call for a baggy car and instead of taking 10 minz it takes 30 and sometimes they claim that all cars r busy! And i had to tranform from a room to another at the 2nd day of my stay i had an appointment with someone and the checking out service delayed me!

                • Older travelers

                  Excellent room - we got a complementary upgrade without asking! Very good spa and gym facilities. Peaceful and extensive grounds for walking round. Very good tranquil escape just a short drive from Muscat.

                  The relaxing ambiance

                  Some facilities are not available the timings of swimming pool the gym and they should have more variarity of foods
