One month ago, we booked 3 nights and arrived yesterday evening. We were surprised to be welcomed by an excavator that was demolishing the hotel. We called and received as explanation (without any apology) that they had closed the hotel 10 days earlier to start "renovation". We didn't receive any notification and had to find an hotel at 6pm with...

A beautiful setting in a quiet tranquil area. Fantastic beach for swimming and snorkeling - great for children too. Rooms are spotless and very comfortable - we had an on suite room facing the beach. We went to see the turtles at the scientific centre in the evening this was a short drive away. We were glad we had decided...

When you arrive, your first impression may not be crazy. The resort is in the middle of nowhere, encircled by walls...But finally the place is quite nice. Small beach, kids playground, terrace on the beach. Friendly staff. We stayed in a Royal Harmor Room which was big enough for 5. 20 minutes drive from the Turtle Reserve. Be careful you...

Location good, staff friendly, room OK (basic but clean etc), food in restaurant dire and very disappointing. We understand the hotel is closing on 15 November so this may be out of date by the time you read it. We stayed because it is close to the Carapace Turtle Centre.

Friendly reception. pleasant atmosphere. Acceptable food. Pleasant room, although a bit overpriced for what it offers. But basic facilities are there. Cleanliness to be improved. Friendly and helpful staff. Food could be improved, especially breakfast.

Though just basic accommodation but comfortable. Service is good with okay food. Your there for a reason, and you are by the water so you can relax and swim. Good for turtle watching, swimming and fishing. This is one place that I would return to in Oman just to do nothing.

We spent one night at Turtle Beach driving 2.5 hours from Muscat to get there. Well worth it. Clear turquoise sea, alcohol served on the chilled out restaurant and terrace. Well worth paying for air conditioned ensuite room with a sea view. Rooms clean, water hot, a/c cold staff friendly and helpful. Lots of fish in the bay to see,...

The resort was recommended by friends as the best place to stay for Turtle watching. It looked much nicer than the hotels nearer the Turtle reserve with lagoon views and a lovely relaxing ambiance. We booked dawn turtle watching with Reception and it took us about half an hour to drive to the reserve. We had a room with separate...

The resort is in a beautiful location ideally situated for turtle watching but also great for fishing, snorkelling, diving(but bring your own equipment). If you don't pursue an active life just relax on the golden beach and soak up the sun. Cool down with a quick dip in the clear blue waters of the lagoon. A good diverse menu with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Turtle Beach Resort is located 40 kms from Sur on the southern coastline area of the Arabian Peninsula of the Sultanate of Oman at the famous Ras Al Hadd area (world famous breeding ground for the Green turtles). A virgin beach area was identified in a crystal-clear lagoon and the resort was built in typical Omani tradition. Turtle Beach Resort is a traditional Omani style resort that has been offering its services for more than ten years now. We do everything to guarantee that your stay will be a pleasant one. The hotel has a private Beach for an unforgettable beach experience for all the family to enjoy. An ideal way to enjoy nature to its fullest would be to check into the resort in the day, bask in the sun, enjoy some water sports and after dinner make a visit to Ras-Al-Jinz Habitat to see the turtles come on to the beach searching for nesting ground and turtles laying eggs. ... more   less
