Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Breakfast was very varied and everything was tasty. Room had a good view and was accessible for a range of restaurants and cafes. Common areas in the accommodation building were not regularly cleaned. The room was very damp and the damp smell permeated everything. Although Salalah in Khareef is humid, I expected that a 5 star hotel would be able to cope with those conditions better.
