We went to Oman for our wedding trip in November 2011. We spent the first five days at Al-Sawadi beach resort, where we've done snorkelling every day. On the first day we met a whale shark. Every day was a new discovery. The staff was nice, the facilities were very good. We had good food.The breakfast buffet was particularly memorable.... More

We were looking forward to spending a few days on the beach to relax after traveling for over 2 weeks and we hoped to do it here. While in theory it seems to have the prerequisites for being nice it just seems to miss a bit in every category. Instead to being able to enjoy the beach we were there... More

Wasn't sure what to expect from this resort, but we ended up being really impressed. This isn't a luxury place, but everything we saw was done to a good standard. We were told that there are new owners, so clearly improvements have been made. We went with friends for some sun and relaxation over Christmas, and had a great time.... More

Not different from similar resorts worldwide, Al Sawadi offers a wide and enjoyable beach, pool, a richly assorted restaurant and entertainment of various types (included a small local "zoo"). The hotel services are of good level. Rooms are very nicely equipped and elegantly furbished and overlook a small porch. The wifi connection is not good in the rooms but is... More

Stayed here for a night 3 weeks ago. The room was not well lit. After taking a shower, the bathroom got flooded and all the water came out into the bedroom. When I told the reception about it, they said that it was pretty common in their hotel for the bathrooms to get flooded and that they will repair it... More

We stayed two nights in this so called resort after a 10 days roundtrip in Oman. We were looking forward to end our trip in a nice hotel but were very disappointed. The overall infrastructure needs urgent fixing and restauration. Here some examples that we faced: -pool bar existing but not in use -pool water "brownish" -beach bar existing but... More

Stayed here for one night, it was distinctly average. On the plus side, booze was served , dinner and breakfast was good and plentiful, overall good value for money. On the downside, the place needs a major refit, rooms are tired, the resort looks like it's returned from the apocalypse, and it takes ages to get anything done (waited 20mins... More
