Best hotel in Salalah
I've had a pleasant stay at Rotana Salalah Resort.. It's pretty much the best 5 star resort in all Salalah.. Would love to stay there again.. The breakfast is unmissable!

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!

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.
