Have been too ODC a few times and always enjoyed my stay there and have left refreshed and enjoyed the nature and variety of fish. Rooms are pleasant and unique and food has always been decent and sufficient. Always seem to meet nice guests there and the dive staff are organised and helpful. Will return again.....

This place is amazing and I will keep coming back. What you get for your money is a lot more than what you pay. The very nature of the resort is laid back and rustic but still comfortable. It would be spoiled if it became any more 'upmarket'. Contrary to what you might read in other reviews, the food is... More

Been here many times and it's always the same. Great beach and beach bar. Can never use the pool as it has diving classes and the restaurant is bad. What a shame. The location is stunning and it really should be the best. The staff at the gate are appalling and very rude and should be trained or replaced.

This place grows on you. It is no 5 star resort for sure, but something different. A laidback style, and days spent directly on the beach. It's a beautiful spot! We first were unsure wether to stick around or not, but then hey made the changes we asked for and needed regarding the rooms, and we don't regret staying. Also,... More

Review: A lovely gem, with a rotten core. The Dive Centre looks beautiful, it's clean beach, waist high sea water and cool location make it an attraction to lots of different people and initially that was my impression, but that has changed over time, why? As you go into the water, the rocks are sharp, only go in with footwear... More

Even though we are not divers, this venue was absolutely fabulous, very peaceful, especially when all the other guests (divers) left for their day trips. There were kayaks for rent to explore the adjoining bays where you not only see heaps of fish but also turtles. A short drive 20 mins, to Muskat for shopping at the local markets. Breakfast,...

NEVER,NEVER,NEVER again....They looks like thieves.... I stayed two times in December and was just average... I booked again in March, I paid in advance with Credit Card and, due to personal reasons I cancelled my reservation more than one week before the scheduled arrival. According with their cancellation policy the 50% of the amount was charged and the other 50%... More

We spent the last day of our holiday here: lovely setting, BUT if you spend any time here, take great care when going down the steps from the pool area to the beach. I slipped and landed very hard on the third from the bottom step - the steps are tiled, they were wet but you couldn't tell until it... More

We travelled from UAE with a group of approx 20, we had all booked accommodation at the dive center in advanced, as well as dives. On arrival late in the afternoon, we were were told that they had no record of the booking for 4 different parties, despite all of us having email confirmations printed out, and some of us... More

I spent one night at the Oman Dive Center. I was a female traveling alone through Oman and this was my last night of an amazing vacation. Everything was perfect. The accommodations were traditionally rustic but with all the amenities needed (and not needed, no TV etc). My room was right on the beach, about a 10 second walk to... More
