returned here in December 2014 for just two nights.. the same friendly staff and good basic accommodation.. obviously the place has aged a few years, especially being so close to the sea/beach but that is part of the "package"... The place remains our choice as the alternative to the real hotels in Salalah, none of which offer value for money...... More

I very rarely post bad reviews. But sometimes something just doesn't seem right, and this place is an example of that. Where to start? Well, despite the owners knowing exactly when we were coming after we emailed ahead, when we arrived the place was deserted. We eventually found the reception desk, and had to find the owner's phone number to... More

We recently had a pleasant 5 night stay at the Arabian Sea Villas. We had a terrace level room (we weren't really able to take advantage of the terrace due to the "monsoon" weather!) and it was spacious, with a sitting area and en suite bathroom (and a mini-fridge). The room was spotless, and the housekeeping kept it that way... More

This place is great for sight seeing, wherein you just use this place to sleep. It's located exactly in front of the beach , which enlightened this place. Slept with windows open with the sounds of beach waves. It's a bed & breakfast place, there is no room service or lifts, so most of heavy luggage I left it in... More

Direct in front of the Arabian Sea, only separated by beautiful white sands Arabian Sea Villas is a perfect location. Spend some rial extra and choose a spacious room with balcony on the seaside. Great hospitallity and the knowledge of the managing staff - Maria , Musalem and family - about the culture, the architecture, the archeology and local nature... More

On a beautiful beach where fisherman bring their catch nearby. Very nice Yemeni manager (does great desert trips) and his Belgium co-manager, very knowledgeable about the region. Rooms and breakfast are very good for the price.

We have just returned from 5 nights staying at Arabian Sea Villas. The location is amazing, with direct access to the surf beach and a balcony with a lovely view.

We enjoyed our stay at Arabian Sea Villas. The managers are friendly and helpful and the location on the beach is wonderful. We had a large family room and the breakfast was very good. Our word of warning comes in the booking procedure. We had great difficulty in contacting the guest house direct and their website seemed to have been... More

Really special to be on a local beach, and be with the locals. Rooms comfortable, clean and adequate. Breakfast was the best in the whole of Oman, with great variety and choice. Roof terrace was a great bonus Help and advice for guides into the empty quarter was absolutely FANTASTIC and i would highly recommend you book thru this hotel.

I have to agree with most reviewers when they say the hotel offers the basics. It's quite clean, though they don't clean the room every day (not an issue for me--I don't clean every day, either!). The hotel is somewhat worn and could use some freshening up, though the exterior was delightful with lots of potted plants and swept walkways.... More
