Humid, moist, damp, wet and dark room

Review by wha1949Switzerland

We stayed six nights in July during Corona lockdown. The hotel was almost empty. We had booked standard room and that's what we got.

We had a room on ground floor in cluster 7 near the beach...

At checkinn we didn't realize how humid it was, because AC was set to 18 degres, and we thought this was the reason.

For six days we had a humid room, floor is with tiles and you could see the humidity on the floor. When you sit on bed and get up we had the impression we were on a wet towel. My wife had her bones aching all the time.

Room is also very dark, the sun will never enter and the lights are very weak.

Because of corona breakfast was room service. Quite ordinary, fresh juice only once. Coffee was good, although only luke warm on most days. And on one day they were 45 minutes late for breakfast.

Housekeeping was good and personal was friendly. TV had no youtube, WiFi was good.

After three days we seriously considered check out, even when we had prepayed in full.

Even when government restrictions allowed opening of gym for hotel guests they didn't want to open. I guess they just wanted to save money. We know of at least 2 hotels in Salalah where gym was open.

Even with Oman standards this is only a three star hotel and we would never go there again durin Khareef

Disappointment

I have been thinking about writing and not writing for a long time,

-The hotel is mediocre -Food is medium quality -Hotel is very far from city center and taxi is very expensive -the staff is indifferent -and when we go to sea,they are constantly watching the ladies,there was a black employee in particular,yasseri -yasser do not remember.

ın short ,with his perverted gaze,it bothered us very much.

Very good with small minus

Review by aniamamailaWarsaw, Poland

I would recommend the hotel for everybody, very nice place, lots of space for walking, service excellent, food was good (4,5/6). Beach clean and near hotel. The only minus would be Air Condition in the room which doesn't smell good.

Hotel, service and beach extraordinary, all-incusive-food mediocre

Review by Italo13Munich, Germany

Some thoughts about rotana resort in salalah. We stayed here for 2 weeks just before the corona closing. All in all a very nice place to be, an extraordinary effektive and friendly service, comfortable rooms and a very well maintained resort. And an absolutely stunning beach...

But there are some segments which do not reach 5 star level. The biggest handicap is the provided food. The lunch and dinner offers in the main restaurant are - with some exceptions – underdeveloped. The exceptions: a solid variety and quality of salads and deserts. Once and a while a very well barbecued chicken. Once there was a truly indian spicy Daal. The main impression of the indian and arabic dishes is firstly lack of spices and secondly poor meat quality with beef, fish and lamb. The quality at the beach restaurant and at silk road is slightly better, a quality you would at least expect as a standard of an all inclusive voucher in the main restaurant. Lamb biranyi in silk road was not tight, the grill fish was nothing special. At beach restaurant the beef filet was extraordinary tender, even if always the same sauce is used for all steaks. Contrary the steak from the barbecue at the main restaurant you hardly can chew. Okay is the pasta station, even if there are truly more than 2 pasta dishes one could offer. But I think the concept is to try to persuade all inclusive guests into your additional dinner offers to make more money. We didn't use the barbecues becauce we do not like sitting on benches like on campgrounds. We know dinners at the beach, but in more attractive settings. They seam not very well accepted anyway. We had holidays in different 5 star hotels like Sheratons and Hiltons in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ras al-Khaimah. Not yet in Rotana Hotels, where you got all inclusive buffets with whole rosts and huge barbecued fishes freshly portioned on your plate. Hotels where you get some peanuts with your drink inclusive. My propsal is: optimize the prize of all inclusive, but offer solid food to not frustrate all inclusive guests, thats obviously your main guest group. Why not open the hall besides the reception for all inclusives? Why is there no decoration at the tables near the beach restaurant. There ist a strange light managment there and you are blinded by a very bright spot near the swimming pool. Yes, there is a sauna, but no place to rest afterwards. The music band you hired is quide good, just missing alternatives.
