certainly the best hotel in Sur! the only factor you need to take into consideration is the proximity to the turtle beach. This hotel is at a walking distance from the beach which makes it much more convenient to go to the beach at the night and the dawn times. moreover hotel guests have a higher priority than the others...

I only spent one night at the reserve and after being told that the accommodation was extremely basic, I was pleasantly surprised. It was lovely! Seeing the turtles nesting was amazing, however- I am not sure that it is fair to say it is 'conservation'. There is a small museum within the reserve with information about different turtle species etc,... More

We had been looking for interesting places in Oman to show my husband's parents who are on a visit here.Since it is the season,we thought we'd try the turtle reserve which we'd not been to either. It was a great experience!The drive to the place itself was interesting cos we stopped by Bimmah sink hole,Wadi Tiwi and the "Pebble beach"... More

We have just returned from an overnight stay at Ras Al Jinz Turtle Reserve where we were lucky enough to be guided to a magical place where Turtles laid and hid their eggs before easing back in to the ocean before sunrise. We witnessed about fifty turtles and were lucky enough to see hatchlings making their way in to the... More

I will not as much review the hotel, which was good, but not anything out of the ordinary, but will tell what an amazing and inspiring experience the staff gave us. Hotel guests were offered two beach outings, 9 pm and 4 am, we did both and had truly unique turtle-watching tours! This was by far the most extraordinary experience... More

What an escape from daily routine at such an affordable price in the mist of nature surrounded by hard rocky mountains, desert, and sea. The sunset and sunrise were mesmerizing. Sleeping in the tents on a star filled night is an experience undefined.
