If you want a 5 star resort, go to a 5 star resort (as we did after 2 delightful days at Oman Dive Centre). ODC isn't 5 star and doesn't pretend to be. But it is laid back, relaxing and good value. We found the staff all polite and friendly. The breakfasts and dinner were varied, plentiful and good quality.... More

This place has an amazing setting and will need a thorough overhaul if it is to compete with the 5 star places either side. Too many notices and unwelcoming staff detract from the stunning location. Centre food is expensive and the facilities are very tired. A pity as this has such potential.

The rooms in the hotel are comfortable and the view from the patio of the room is fantastic. The beach is fantastic! I stayed for a long weekend and spent one day relaxing on the beach. Breakfast and dinner is included in the meal and the food is good quality. I would return just to spend the day at the... More

Entrance staff told us that diving and snorkeling gear cost was included in the entrance cost (4.5 qr) we asked three times as we didn't believe it. As expected the rude guy at diving Centre said no and had no clue what good customer service is Apart from that, the greenish sea surrounded by the sandstone cliffs is surreal. Beach... More

I was here for a few days in September. It was rather calm, but that was just perfect. The cabins are comfortable and offer everything you need for a great price. The food is good too, and more importantly, plenty! During the day the beach gets a bit more crowded, but as the cabins have access to the private part,... More

The Oman Dive Center has so much potential. The location is beautiful and we come here regularly but it never improves. The service is poor, the staff are untrained and appear to have hotel no hotel experience. The chalets are in need of upgrading especially the bathrooms, rusty plug holes, poor showers and the aircon needs replacing in bedroom. Potentially... More

First of all, if you like a bit of bling or exciting nightlife with your holiday, do not book this property!! If however, you're looking to relax in a beautiful setting, and don't care about 24 hour room service then I highly recommend the ODC. We've just stayed for a second time, enjoying the sunshine, the stunning setting, and the... More

The place is amazing, surrounding and nature is just peaceful. Awesome access to pool and beach. But after 8p the reception closes, food closes at 10p. There is no activity in the late evening. It's totally deserted, if by mistake you leave they key at reception like we usually do and come back late then make sure you stay else... More

Whether you are into diving or not. This place is great for a day at the beach. I do not do scuba diving, but i went there with a friend mainly because i saw nice pictures and i knew they have a bar by the shore. ( Almost impossible to find in Oman). The location is amazing, the shore is... More

My friend brought me here for a quiet breakfast on a weekday and what was supposed to be a short swim. We ended up staying in the water for 4 hours because it was beautiful and quiet. We explored the rocks at the sides of the beach, finding fishes and crabs. It was a peaceful morning for us relaxing out... More
