We really enjoyed our stay at the Oman Diving Center. Simple bungalows on the beach, no TV's no telephones - just simple water fun. The diving was decent for the area. The dive operation is well managed. Breakfasts and dinner buffets served were with enough selection to please all. This is a family friendly resort but with plenty of fun... More

I have never stopped here but have used the beach and restaurant numerous times since 2012-2014. The beach and scenery is beautiful and sea is lush but unfortunately the sea has more trash in it every time I visit. The restaurant and bar has slowly gone downhill with very poor customer service and wrongly labelled dishes. I would recommend a... More

1 night at the Oman Dive center, we went several time in the last 5 years. But everything changed. The room was uncleaned, the sync was broken. Lunch poor. Aperitif area dirty and a guest simply piss on the sea while we were there and the staff just ignore him. Dinner poor (with cockroaches around the table), breakfast poor. A... More

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
