“Simple Basic and Better Than Camping”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

You get what you pay for. This place has a great beach with amazing fish to see when snorkeling.
Facilities are basic and be careful what type of room you book as this determines what facilities you get. This is traditional Omani accomodation with a bit extra, dont expect too much and you will have a great time.
Food is average, BBQ meat and salad, breakfast is cooked.
If you want luxury then pay more than double the price and book room only in local hotel.

Room Tip: chose on the beach and private bathroom

A white sand beach will give you a chance to sunbathe or have a swim. Shallow water and turtles sometimes...
The view is not so great (I wonder what is the building you see in front of you that looks like a prison).
The bungalows are OK if you are looking for something that sounds like camping. You can either choose without AC ( ventilator only ) or with . And same, with bathroom or without . Bathroom means WC and sink + shower ,
Beds are Ok. The light inside the cabins is dramatic : don't even think of reading...
Dinner and breakfast are included. Buffet for both of them. Dinner is tasty . Breakfast needs to be improved.
It seems to be th best choice if you want to see the turtles... But this is not always possible !

We stayed as a family, had a twin room in which they added 2 beds. The room was very clean. The ac was barely working, but enough. The place is beautiful though. The food was budget at best, especial,y the morning buffet was disappointing. The Nescafé left something to be desired. The evening food was ok.
Overall, the place is ok. I would recommend it for one night or 2. Great place to go to for the turtle reserve.

A beautiful location and a really relaxed atmosphere. Unfortunately the staff is not very passionate and the food was bad.

At the end of the day we saw some turtles swimming in the sea, very special!

Our twin room was spacious and clean and felt like heaven after camping for 2 days. The breakfast was a nice mix of standard buffet fare and included in the price. The guides were great for the 2 trips to the beach. We saw 3 turtles but it is early in the season. The museum is a nice feature-don't miss it!

We had a King Fish room with our own toilet and paid OMR 50 (about 134 US dollars) for one night and with breakfast and lunch, we find it cheap. The staff was friendly, and we have no complaints. You have to know that it takes nearly half an hour to drive to Ras al Hadd, but the resort was honest from the beginning and tells that you cannot see the turtles on their place and advice us to reserve tickets. We had two trips to Ras al Hadd, which was a great experience.
