I stayed at Beach Villas for 8 nights. Mr and Mrs Kumar are wonderful hosts and will anything to help you have the best stay possible. They can arrange anything you need for your stay, including car rental and trips to the desert. There is not enough to do in Salalah for 8 days, 4 days at the most is enough to see everything, unless you are content to just relax and read on the beach or on the terrace.
The place does have a nice location, if all you want is a beach. The view is fantastic, particularly if you have a terrace, on the top floor, not a balcony. It is a really nice, quiet beach, where you can walk for miles, and can see herons by the water. The weather was perfect, nothing but sunshine.
The Crown Plaza is a short walk away, and you can go there for drinks, meals, massage or pedicure. Other than that, you will need a car or taxi for anything else you do. I paid 20 OR a day, or approximately 60 Cnd dollars. A taxi to go to the souq is usually around 4 OR to go (12Cnd) - you can bargain down if you are good at it. Coming back it usually cheaper and i did it for as low as 1 OR.
The area around the property is not nice, lots of half-demolished, abandoned houses, empty lots with garbage and debris, garbage bins and lots of stray cats. Also, they are building a new building in the lot adjacent to the property, so there is the occasional construction noise. Furniture is a little tired.
Breakfast is basic: bread, butter, processed cheese, jams. Instant coffee, tea, and orange juice. Bananas. You can request an omelet or fried eggs.
Sometimes they offer dinner, which is absolutely delicious.
If you do stay, make sure you ask for what you need, management is really helpful!
I would recommend this place to a friend, with a warning about the location and the construction noise, many or most people would not be bothered by these..
