We stayed here at the beginning of January. Overall, I would not recommend staying at this resort. However, I'll start with the positives: 1) Fresh, tasty food at the buffet (although vegetarian options were very limited) 2) kitchen staff very friendly, efficient and helpful. On the second night of our stay they very kindly offered to serve me some dahl... More

We used to come here alot when we lived in muscat for a day and would also bring our visitors with us . Nice atmosphere and clean and tidy surroundings . Places to eat and drink are nice nd reasonable prices. Be sure to apply the sun screen frequently if your going to spend the day here .

The beach huts here are a great place to spend a night or two right on the beach. The deal includes dinner and breakfast, both of which were surprisingly good. The hut was comfortable, spacious, and instantly relaxing. Swimming in the bay was great!

We've been to the Oman Dive Centre before, and would still recommend it unreservedly for a laid-back, charming place with attentive restaurant staff and plentiful food. We stayed in a barista hut made from palm fronds etc, and our en suite bathroom was good quality and worked well. The sea was close to the hut and it is great to... More

I have been going to the Dive Centre since 2010 (it has a new name of Muscat Hills Dive Centre now) a day or two there each time once a year. I can't speak for the Dive team/staff ect but feel I can for the 'resort' itself. It has an envious position with a beautiful soft sand beach gently slipping... More

Traveling to Oman for a total of four days and we planned on doing the three day dive optioned offered by ODC. Day 1 was a Thursday so it was quiet and Mary was our divemaster. We set out as a small group of one snorkeler and three divers and our divemaster. Mary was exceptional. She gauged our abilities and... More

If you want a 5 star resort, go to a 5 star resort (as we did after 2 delightful days at Oman Dive Centre). ODC isn't 5 star and doesn't pretend to be. But it is laid back, relaxing and good value. We found the staff all polite and friendly. The breakfasts and dinner were varied, plentiful and good quality.... More

This place has an amazing setting and will need a thorough overhaul if it is to compete with the 5 star places either side. Too many notices and unwelcoming staff detract from the stunning location. Centre food is expensive and the facilities are very tired. A pity as this has such potential.

The rooms in the hotel are comfortable and the view from the patio of the room is fantastic. The beach is fantastic! I stayed for a long weekend and spent one day relaxing on the beach. Breakfast and dinner is included in the meal and the food is good quality. I would return just to spend the day at the... More
