The new management Al Wesal Hotel is very good, kind, caring. Feels like home a very good place to visit. You must visit this hotel on your way to Wahiba sands or when you play your desert trips. They also have restaurant which offers good food.

Stayed with my family for a night. I find it really relaxing and i love the mountains there! Cant really complain about the place because thats their culture and its always great to find out how other people on the other side of the world live.

its a good place to stay overnight and for lunch the next day. Its always my spot for visiting before going to the al Areesh camp. It has good food. It also has an interesting view when you enter the hotel, it has a pond and a small waterfall. I advise you to visit.

We wanted to visit the camel market in Sinaw and because there were no hotels in this area we booked the Rest House in Al Quabil for 1 night. It didn't look too bad from the outside and the patio with the little pond gave the place some charm, but when we entered our room and looked around, we were... More

Clean, comfortable, ok for stop-over licenced restaurant open for lunch and dinner near to (very) early morning training grounds for camel training if travelling in your own car then this is convenient and easy base for visiting Ibra area and Wahiba sands On the inland bus route Muscat-Sur popular with locals popping in throughout the evening

After some difficulty in finding the place due to lack of helpful directions and dusk - we now know it to be directly opposite the Shell garage in Al Qabil on the 23 road - this was as others have described it. Basic en-suite accommodation at a reasonable price. Breakfast is unvaried (we were there 3 nights) and the dinner... More

Rooms are rather basic, but clean with a good working aircon. Meal was so/so. We stayed in this resthouse to make an afternoon tour in the desert (Wahiba Sands) and to visit the very interesting women souq in Ibra the next (Wednesday)morning. The service of the rude receptionists was very poor. We almost missed the desert tour which was reserved... More

The sands form a backdrop to the village of Mintarib which you can drive to on a sealed road also the resthouse will arrange for trips into the desert from the Al Areesh camp although when we booked...
