Our accommodation was at the end of habited area, right next to mountains rather in between two mountains. It was a small villa, all rooms converted into hotel rooms. From our window, all we could see is mountains & small villas around. Main street/square was just 10 min drive. The rooms were okay. The tour representative was very helpful. We booked the accommodation on phone 2/3 days before. He came to pick us up also told us few restaurants, which were good. We are not used to sleeping at 9pm in Dubai so at night we drove to a wadi near airport and explored nearby area. While returning to our villa, we saw Arabian foxes right at the corner of villa; it was great excitement for us. They took a goat with them to mountains; we could figure that out from the noise. The tour representative told us that these foxes come down from mountain to the town almost every night. After this experience I was very happy that we booked this accommodation instead of the hotels in Khasab. Here you get to live like locals. Next morning we went to Khasab castle on Al Taif's recommendation, and we were happy we visited it. The Dhow tour they booked for us was amazing. The facilities on dhow are good enough and beautiful experience in fjords, watching wild dolphins and telegraphic island was one of the best in the region! I would recommend Al taif tours as well as their accommodation to all.
