Chef has little sense on food. No Indian bread with Indian cuisine. No arabic bread as well. But Indian bread was served during breakfast !!!! No wifi's in rooms. Quite an average experience accentuated only by the location and beach.

Well, just basic stay, but it is not worth the price you pay. Ok. The room is clean, the bathroom is modern ( newly decorated). But that's all. The food is not tasty just typical resort food. We got the seaview room- it meant, quite a wide yard, then a concrete wall, then a beach and finally sea. The place... More

Nice resort in isolated location, very quiet. Rooms are clean & well-appointed and rates include breakfast & dinner. Dinner is a themed buffet, changing every night. Lunch available at bar. Breakfast is basic but decent. Beach is not very nice, but pool is decent. Mini-zoo on site. Staff is mostly eager-to-please south Asian, with Filipina managers. Euro Divers on site... More

Stayed here for 5 days over Christmas 2014. I was worried that there wouldn't be enough to do, but between walks down the beach, massages, one lemon & mint mocktail after the next, and a day-trip to Muscat, I feel like I could have easily spent another week relaxing and exploring the area. Now I have to go back, because... More

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

Positive: * check-in was easy and very matter-of-fact * large bedroom with an outside sitting area * complementary mineral water * good shower * very generous glasses of wine with your dinner Negatives: * bathroom was large and looked very modern, however the towel rails and fixtures were rusty and on closer inspection it became clear that some renovations are...
