Don't be put off by the rather grim looking entrance as the accomodation overall is top-notch. Anyway, you're here for the turtles. Do not miss the second visit as it is by far the most enjoyable when the sun rises and you can actually wander around without disturbing the turtles. It's also much easier to really see them in the... More

Since the hotel is at the reserve, there is no late night driving to reach the reserve for the turtle watching tours. The price includes breakfast, 2 tours (8.30pm & 4am) & entrance to the museum. We were surprised to find they also cleaned our car the next day! The room was clean & spacious. As hotel guests, your place... More

We were blown away by this experience. We went on the night tour (about 9pm). It lasted about an hour. In this time, we saw turtle eggs being hatched, an adult turtle enter the sea and baby turtles running to the sea. The guides were very good and were very knowledgable about the turtles.

I had a very nice stay here in a splendid Eco tent. The overall experience was pretty amazing with the opportunity to see such massive turtles as they lay their eggs on the beach and perchance see hatchlings make their way to the sea. The Eco tents were nice, but a bit expensive. I believe that part of the accommodation... More

this was the only disappointment of our trip to oman regarding accommodation. I liked the concept but it just didn't work. dinner and breakfast were ok but nothing special. it was also the only place I came across (in oman!) that offered instant coffee - yuk.
