This is a lovely little resort and a perfect place to break a journey or as a base for turtle watching. The sea view bandas are comfortable and nicely done and the staff are charming and helpful. Dinner was basic, though ok, but breakfast was really not acceptable. Food warmers of congealed and leathery fried eggs, ropey bread and luke... More

The place was nice and simple. The rooms were spacious. The food was very average and basic and not much variety. The overall feel though was really nice. We were late to the turtle viewing because of the wrong info from the reception desk- we barely made it!

The location is lovely and the general feel of the place is lovely. One of my favourite places to stay in Oman. The Kingfisher rooms are normally good value, but if they are sold out then is can feel a bit expensive. The Dolphin rooms are great for a basic stay, but then need to be a basic price. In... More

The resort is lovely. The staff are very friendly and always ready to help. Comfortable rooms with a lovely private beach. The restaurant has a traditional touch and good food is served. The best part was we had coffee and tea throughout the day at the restaurant which was much required. The only problem we faced was with the Wi-fi... More

The Turtle Beach Resort is our choice of stay when we visit Sur for a vacation. The property is clean and well maintained. The chalets/rooms are tidy and comfortable. The best place to hang out is the beach. The restaurant is by the beach and made in the shape of a huge Dhow (Traditional Arab Boat). We opted for a... More

Lovely friendly resort on a headland close to turtle-watching area. Clean, comfortable cabins with beach access, lovely clear water and a real chill-out atmosphere. Loads of water sports if you're active or a nice relaxing time if you're not. Loads of food on half-board and attentive, friendly staff. Fantastic value for money. Highly recommended.

Nice, quirky place with pleasant sandy beach for swimming and good location for turtle watching (approx 5km). Not much atmosphere but bar was closed for Ramadan during our stay. Dinner buffet was, at best, average and breakfast was appalling. Overall, OK but really seriously overpriced.
