“Bearable for one night...... just”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

Like most people, I imagine, you would only stay here for the turtles. Unfortunately for us, we didn't even get to see any of these delightful and beautiful creatures, so to say it was disappointing is an understatement. One doesn't mind iffy accommodation if the wildlife experience pays off.

I'm not aware of there being anywhere else to stay in the vicinity, but if there is then I suggest staying there instead.

This hotel is directly located on the beach. Large and comfortable rooms, beautiful sight on the beach, very nice and warm sea. Good restaurant with a good choice of food and drinks (also wine, beer and spirits). Its location is very good both to visit Sur and green turtles. Green turtle reserve is a great experience! In several months of the year you can see them nesting, small turtles just born running to the the water, really amazing!

This hotel feels a bit tired and whilst it's perfectly acceptable for one night whilst watching turtles, you're probably not going to want to stay there for much longer! We received a warm welcome with coffee and dates. The rooms were large and adequately equipped, although otherwise reminiscent of a prison cell with their visible concrete blocks. The food was of a good standard at dinner, although it was a bit of a scrum as it seems everyone gets in as soon as the buffet opens so they can get off quickly for their turtle watching. Breakfast was also a buffet and OK.

Arriving too late to find a good camping spot, this lone hotel had plenty of availability - despite the more attractive looking Turtle Beach Resort being full. The hotel is nothing more than a functional place to stay. It is a sad concrete block on a dirty beach with no pretensions whatsoever. Everything is mediocre with especially poor marks for service: after two attempts a can of beer finally arrived via room service - trying to get reception to help, they told be it's not their job! I had to clear breakfast tables myself, several times, whilst the 'waiter' waited lazily by the counter obliviously.

This hotel is quite close to the turtle watching site, that makes me to select this hotel. but experience was good. rooms were clean, friendly staff, close to the beach & good food. Nice Indian food is available at the restaurant. Even breakfast was nice. Overall a nice experience.

Stayed here having turned up on spec and asked for a room. Nice room, friendly restaurant staff, food was OK. Was about 15 mins drive from the visitor centre for seeing the turtles at ras-al-jinz (given had to be there before dawn - definitely easier than staying in Sur!)

Reasonable price room for Oman, would recommend staying there
