We stayed 2 nights at the Oman Dive center, after having a wonderful experience 2 years ago. But...so much has changed! We arrived on a Friday afternoon and the beach was packed!!!! Lots of alcohol and cigarettes and young people smoking shisha on the beach. The accommodation was average, you have to pay a lot of money though (84 OR).... More

I didn't stay overnight so I can't rate the accommodation but we paid the 2 riyal entry fee to use the beach for the day and were happy with the experience. The beach was quite shallow so better for walking in the water than swimming. The water was clear and we spotted fish and jellyfish while wandering. There were plenty... More

Due to TripAdvisor rules I cannot submit two reviews for the same place inside a 3 month time frame so I will be merging my last two stays under the same review. I first experienced ODC by visiting the bar with friends when we were staying at Shangri-La and I loved the idea of having a hut on a beach... More

We were recommended the restaurant here for lunch. It was well below expectations but to cap it all we were charged 2 OMR each just to get into the site. This place is a rip off and it should be avoided.

In October our son was visiting so we drove from Dubai a 2nd time to Oman. This time we booked a cabana for 3 people in the Oman Dive Center. The cabana's are put in a semi circle on the beach. In the stay per night is included breakfast and dinner. The value is good for the amount you pay.... More

Just got off the phone from the Oman Dive Centre, they couldn't be more unhelpful. I was told their policy is not to take bookings over the phone and they will not respond to email reservation requests. If I want to stay my only option is to make my way there on the day I want to stay and take... More

Location is absolutely fabulous, but unfortunately, service is almost non existent!! Absolutely terrible!! Cummon guys, this is not Omani hospitality! Menu is also very limited very invited, which is such a shame. If they only paid a little bit more attention to management, this place could be amazing!!

What a difference with 25 years ago, the road is the only nice thing when you like asphalt. The once beautiful bay is now crowded with a Marina and a big resort development. The solitude which nature can provide is partly gone and with the new upcoming developments maybe totally. We don’t dive however when walking into the sea long... More
