“Good value beach front location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for two nights. This hotel is old fashioned but recently painted with comfortable beds in sea view rooms and small balconies. The beach is rough sand then, as the tide goes out, level rock into the warm shallow sea. It has interesting shells and little rock pools. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is free wifi in the lobby, no wifi in rooms. The bar seemed to be closed but there is room service. Breakfast, included in the price, was fine with European style choices and also middle eastern ones. We had dinner one night and it was fine. Plenty on on-site parking. I would stay there again.

Stayed January 2013, traveled as a couple

The beach is scruffy and not accessed directly from the hotel. Restaurant was good for lunch, poor for breakfast. Room had a flooding or condensation problem (had to change rooms at 2.30 am. Staff friendly. Bar set up for a seminar (yes!!!). Interesting Indian, Arabian and Russian music (licensed) clubs in hotel. BUT - there is not a lot of choice in Sur.

The hotel is good, quite old but good and clean. Everyone is always kind and available to provide you every information you need. It's in a good position to visit the city, close to the beach and with a small swimming pool. The breakfast is good, thre's a girl that cook omelettes for you and there's a good choice of fruits and cakes.

all is fine our room, the strange silent bar and the food was alright except the receptionist who made our check-out was a bit rude including his face who looks like the same as his attitude shows. Not even "thank you for staying with us" word or asking us "how was your stay".
Over all we enjoyed SUR ;-)

Stopped there on our way from Muscat to Ras al Jinz.
It looks like it never went through any restoration since 20-30 years. Overall the hotel and the rooms are quite sad and everything is just old and not really maintained.
Rooms were not very spacious, however reasonably clean.
One positive point, they all have sea view as the hotel is literally built on the beach.
There is free wifi internet access but only in the hotel lobby.
Breakfast is quite average with limited choice.
Overall it looked as the less bad option we could pick in Sur.

You can just see how great of a hotel this was twenty odd years ago. Everything is a bit old. Good thing it's clean (mostly) and the staff is friendly and helpful (mostly).

We had a room with a balcony overlooking the sea, which was awesome. We slept with the door slightly open to enjoy a cool breeze and the soothing sound of the waves.

The food is terrible, I think the staff has given up. If you do eat there, make sure to only order indian food, since that's at least decent.

You can't really swim at the beach near the hotel and the water of the pool was quite cold when we were there.

Don't come here if you don't have a car. (You can rent one at the Plaza Hotel.)

Room Tip: Get one with a view of the sea (most have).

We arrived in Sur very late in the evening and had not booked accommodation. It was dark and we only had the recommendations in the Rough Guide to go by. We decided to check out the rooms at the Al Ayjah Plaza Hotel, the Sur Hotel and the Sur Beach Hotel (in that order). The rooms at the Al Ayjah Plaza Hotel were spacious and modern but the hotel was deserted and had a soul-less feel to it. It is also right opposite a petrol station, which we didn't find appealing. The Sur Hotel was just a little too dubious for us, and when we finally arrived at the Sur Beach Hotel, the fact that we got a sea view room for 40 Rials did the trick. However, our room was much smaller than the one we were shown at the Al Ayjah Plaza Hotel (they would have only charged 1 Rial more). It was also very outdated and (as mentioned in another review) the fridge wasn't working, the telephone was temperamental, and the fruit in the fruit basket, although a nice feature, was old and dry. We got a good night's sleep, but breakfast was nothing to write home about and the beach, although we enjoyed the sea view, wasn't very nice. When we drove to the Dhow Yard in the morning, we saw the nearby Al Ayjah Plaza Hotel across the lagoon and realised that we should have stayed there as it looked much nicer in daylight.
