Reviewed yesterday NEW

After trying numerous fine dining restaurants in oman, this was a very pleasant experience. Compared to other restaurants, the food was reasonably priced and every bit as satisfying. There was a wide variety of dishes to choose from, each inspired by a specific time period. The wait staff was friendly and helpful.

We did not stay a night at the Reserve but we got there in the afternoon and were waiting until the Turtle tour watching time. There are no restaurant or coffee shop around except the café and restaurant that opens only at specific times. Turtle Watching was great experience, we are so glad we did it!

I stayed in the tent, which is very nice compared to the hotel. You need to book in advance and it is quite expensive (more than 200€ per night). Two tours are included, I suggest to do both. One at 9pm and one at 5am. They last one hour. You walk 15 minutes to reach the beach and there it...

Prison break, that's how our guide described the hotel. I couldn't find a better word for it. We stayed in the hotel as part of a 3 day excursion in Oman. It is a very sad and dark place, wifi is very slow and the restaurant food fair but overpriced. Only good thing about the hotel is that it is...

Tent has outdoor seating area from where you can watch millions of starts that we don't see in the city. Breakfast choice is limited but sufficient. Staff is polite and accommodating. Watching turtles hitching is an...

We were a couple, stayed at the reserve in the first week of October. It was my third visit to see the turtles, my earlier visits were before the reserve started. There are two turtle tours, first at 8.30 PM and the second at 4 AM. People staying at the reserve don’t need to pay for the tours as it...

We drove to Ras al-Jinz Turtle Reserve and arrived at night. Initially we weren't sure that we'd arrived at a hotel because the building looked more like a center for something. Our room was simple, but adequate. The turtle viewing experience was fantastic. We went on both the evening and sunrise turtle viewings, and being guests at the hotel we...
