“The resort was the relaxation needed.”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

We stayed in the hammour room with a sea view. It had a double bed and an extra single for my son. The en suite was great. All lovely.

It is 2 star, but for a chilled weekend it is worth it. Children had a great time snorkelling and the bar drinks are cheap.

Room Tip: Ask for ac and en suite.

The rooms, individual huts, look a bit like like an oilfield workers camp, and the location looks desolate on Google Earth, but all that is very misleading. This is a perfect hotel to stay with (or without) kids to visit the turtle beaches. Most tourists we saw arrived in the afternoon, and departed again next morning. That is a mistake. We stayed 3 nights with 2 grandchildren aged almost 5, and found the hotel, and its family unit (2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, connected into a single unit) perfect for our purpose. The children have a protected sandy beach and a playground, the restaurant served good buffet food, and after the first evening visit to the turtles, overcrowded with some 120 visitors for 3 turtles (feb-march is low season) we came back some 30 hours later for a much better (very) early morning visit. For other activities (if you stay 3 nights), drive south towards Al Ashkara, or visit Sur, or do nothing on the beach. Friendly and helpful staff. Simple outfitting, such as the home-made wooden beach beds, nothing fancy but adequate and all you need is there.

Room Tip: With small kids, ask for a family unit. We had unit 708.

Like Oman, this place shows its beauty at second glance. Driving there, it looks not as nice. That impressions changes though as soon as you pass the reception heading towards the outdoor restaurant / bar, the kids playground and the beach towards your bed for the night. The huts are simple, but comfortable and clean. Dinner and breakfast buffet are good and the bar is a great place to spend the evening having a nice glas of wine! Don't miss the morning swim at the hotel beach! Friendly staff and free wifi. All together a place I can highly recommend - great value for your money!

We are residing in Oman for more than 5 years and the Turtle Beach Resort is our the most favorite destination for the short weekend relaxation trips with lots of snorkeling and turtle watching. We also bring here all our visiting friends, because the resort itself is very relaxing and nice place. Its excellent location makes the Turtle Beach resort a piece of paradise. It is very convenient to make an easy turtle watching tour right from the resort. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and amazing blue lagoon with stunning coral reefs - simply the piece of paradise.

Room Tip: We always choose the room type either "King fish room" or "Hammour room"

We wanted to see turtles and we traveled 180 km for that. We found a simple small resort with clean rooms. Internet is working only at the bar. There is no sound proof and you hear everything.
The price is very, very high in relation with what you get, not only from the hotel but from the area as well. Regarding the turtles, 20 people for 1 turtle. that ... said. they should live the poor animals alone.

Room Tip: dont get the rooms without AC. its like you would sleep under the naked sky.

We spent one night here to sea the turtles. Our room was quite attractive from the outside, the inside was ok but we hadn`t expected luxury. The position was good, on a sandy beach with beds and umbrellas but we had no time to take advantage of this. Dinner was buffet style and adequate in an open area. Breakfasts were taken inside and were very basic. Proper coffee would have been nice, it all seemed very "self-service"-ish! The receptionist was pleasant as were most of the staff. It is fine as a stopover to view turtles at Ras al Jinz.

Returned to Turtle Beach Resorts this month, with my sister; 5 years since my previous visit. It was basic but comfortable then, and still is. There has been significant expansion of facilities and it is losing a bit of the small-scale, personal touch, which seems a pity but is inevitable as tourism builds up in the area. The new barasti-like huts are good, but the dividing door to the next room is definitely not sound-proof! We found booking and check-in to be seamless, the woman at check-in and the staff to be helpful and attentive, the bar area comfortable, and drinks reasonably priced. This is probably the best value for money for people wanting the see the turtles at Ras al Jinz, who have their own transport to get there at 8.30 pm and 4 am.

Room Tip: Watch out for the paired rooms... the dividing door is definitely not soundproof so your sleep will...
