Al Taif Tours Accommodation
Ranked #1 of 2 Khasab B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 10, 2012

Amazing Service, clean apartment, well furnished and cooperative staff. I visited with my family and relatives in the month of April, the weather was nice and the apartment is situated in middle of no where and it's calm,surrounded by mountains. Beautiful view with 5 min distance to main Khasaab town. I highly recommend this for anyone who is looking for affordable budget stay along with one roof accommodation with large group.

Extra mattresses can be provided on request and breakfast, tea/coffee is served every morning on requested time of customer.

Overall customer oriented and helpful staff.

As a part of a roundtrip in Oman we were spending 3 nights in Khasab. We would have preferred a hotel with a sea view, but Golden Tulip was the only beach hotel, and we found it too expensive. After reading in Tripadvisor we ended up with a choice between Khasab Hotel and Altaif Tours. Khasab Hotel has a swimming pool and became therefore our preferred choice.But Khasab Hotel was very slow to answer some of the questions we had, while Altaif Tours responded quickly. We therefore changed our mind. For us service is more important than a pool!

The villa we stayed in was nice, and it was located in a quiet neighborhood. The room, we had, was big and very clean. It needed some reparations, but we knew that it wasn’t a 4 stars hotel, we were staying at, and we appreciated that there was a fridge and a kettle. There was also access to a kitchen, but it was not particularly well equipped. But we could cook there, if we wanted. Unfortunately the villa is far away from the city's restaurants, so when we went out for dinner, we had to be driven, because we had not rented a car. But fortunately we had Eldo. From the first meeting, when we arrived with the ferry, he was always ready to do the best for us to make our stay in Khasab as good as possible. He drove us to the places, we wanted, arranged tours for us, and we could always trust him. Without any doubt our stay in Khasab has not been so pleasant without him.

We were looking forward to the Dhow Trip, but unfortunately the weather wasn’t good. Cloudy, windy and with at little rain. For us it was disappointing to snorkel, maybe because we have visited many beautiful snorkel places in other countries. But we saw lots of dolphins. Our captain was very good at finding them and getting them to "surf" along with the boat, so it was fun. The surroundings are also fantastic, so the trip was great anyway.

Eldo also arranged for a chauffeur to drive us and 3 other guests up in the mountains. Again it was a nice trip, but we would have wished that the chauffeur had spoken a better English, so he could have told us a little more about, what we saw.

But all in all we think that we got value for money on our stay in Khasab, and we can only recommend Al Taif Taif Tours and a dhow and a mountain trip.

Would like to thank Reji/Muneer/Eldo and Abu Bakker for making our (32) trip pleasant and cherisable. They ensured that trip was trouble free including but not limited to stay, Dhow trip provided us tips for Mountain safari during NOV'11 EID holidays. I have no hesitation in recommending their service as trip organizers and even requested Reji to suggest/arrange same similar trip to Salalah next year same time, if feasible.

Keep it up.

The accommodation was clean and sufficient to accommodate our 8 families (around 40 adults & kids). The Villa was centrally located and very close to a huge brand new supermarket. The kitchen had 2 hotplates and the 4 bedrooms had a fridge each. Attached bathrooms were convenient (although the water ran out by morning).
There was cable as well, although in a place like Khasab you don't need cable, since you don't want to return from the amazing Dhow trip. The exclusive upper deck for our group on the Dhow was excellent, as was the safely equipment and snorkelling gear (new). Lunch was alright - Basic but clean.
The view during the cruise is spectacular, but THE HIGH POINT WAS DEFINITELY THE DOLPHIN SWIMMING BESIDE OUR DHOW FOR A GOOD 5 MINUTES.
The staff of Al Taif Tours are courteous, cooperative and very helpful. A special mention for Mr. Abubaker.
All in all a satisfying trip.

Actually we were planning long time to visit this beautiful place..but was not sure how it will be?..frankly saying it is such a lovely place which gradually made us to realize the beauty of nature...kasab is a picturesque blend of craved mountains and endless sea with narrow zig-zag side roads fused with huge mountain ...

We enjoyed our trip with 11 members ..from al taif tours operators we had an extremely excellent customer service..especially the accomodation with a big bunglow like villa with big three bedrooms was neat ,tidy with all facilities and accessories...we stayed one night and in the morning we enjoyed with our own mini break-fast as they provide with all kitchen utensils and equipments..

The best part of the journey was the dhow-trip ..it is amazing with gentle -breeze in lonely sea with huge side mountains along with jumping bold ,cutty dolphins on both sides of our boat added more brightness for the journey...in the dhow they provide refreshments and delicious lunch...

We even splashed out in the deep sea by swimming long distances with snoreclings and feet fins along with life jackets...the man in the boat was an expert diver who took sea -urchins and coral reefs from under water..

Its really a diiferent island who can relax from this mechanical life...And i hope this is the best climate to visit this place..more over we are highly recommended for al taif tour operators with wonderful ,helpful co-ordination and we are honoured with great pleasure...

We stayed at this villa for 2 nights during Eid in November 2011.

Positives about the hotel:
Very friendly staff - met us in town and organised an excellent dhow trip - they can also organise off-road mountain trips, although if you have a 4X4 this is also easy to do yourself. You can get quite high into the mountains with a normal saloon car too.
Very large rooms.
Reasonable location as long as you have your own car (most visitors to Khasab will..).
Reasonable cost outside holiday times.

Need to work on:
Furnishings and amenities in room rather dated including carpet, bathrooms.
Very Expensive rate during holidays (e.g. Eid) when the rate more than doubles. Increased rates during holidays is normal in Oman, but not over 100% increase like here.

Overall recommended. Oman is much friendlier and more relaxing than nearby places like UAE, Qatar, Saudi - different world.

Al Taif was extremely helpful in helping organise my dhow trip from Dubai - much more so than the other tour operators I contacted. The driver turned up promptly and we easily made the trip on time. When the boat trip was over another rep met me off the boat and took me to the villa. Unfortunately there is no restaurant or cafe in walking distance so he took me to a bar and restaurant, and then took me to the airport in the morning. The room was huge but I would say it needs complete modernisation - new everything. That said, the price for the whole trip was very good.
