Spacious room
Price and staff service
Eldo and Abu Bakar are very helpful and kind. We cant find the place because it has moved to a new place but they came and picked us up at Shell. Eldo also helped us to book the dhow cruise and Abu Bakar prepared a simple yet fulfilling breakfast for us. Room is not bad at all for the price. Hopefully there will be wifi soon. Thank you guys!!

Best place for the price
Great staff, beautiful location and huge rooms.
Al Tiaf is a great place to stay if you have a car. It is on the outskirts of Khasab so would be a pretty long walk if you don't have a vehicle. Other than that, the place is probably the best value hotel in Khasab. The building is new and while it isn't fancy (nor are most places in Khasab), it has everything you need and lots of space both indoors and outdoors. There's hot water and tv available (but no internet). The manager of the place - Eldho is as kind and helpful as you could wish for. He even gives rides into town for people arriving without a vehicle.

Remote but beautiful
Accomodation is very basic, but Khasab is very remote. You'll definately not find the accomodation on your own; make sure you note the owners number and you'll have to call him when you get to Khasab to collect you as the accomodation is basically a villa located in a suburban neighbourhood. The room itself was clean and very basic; owner very friendly and able to organise the boat trip. Breakfast again basic; coffee and toast.

Host was superb
Large rooms and space. Attentive staff. Activities booked through hotel easily.
Group of four friends traveling from UAE to Khasab. Arrived by car in Khasab after dark and unable to find villas. Stopped at a local Lulu grocery store where a store owner was able to call Eldo from AlbTaiff Villas. Eldo was there within minutes and was very warm and friendly. We followed him back to the villas where he showed us the rooms and space. He also organized a full day dhow cruise for us the following morning. Only points of improvement would be cleanliness of accommodation: sheets/bedding could use some updating/cleaning. Breakfast was white toast, some variety or fruits would have been nice. Otherwise the villa is lovely, large, spacious and allowed us access to a kitchen so we could eat there/prepare food. Really enjoyed khasab. The dhow cruise was a highlight with dolphin watching and snorkeling! Highly recommended. Traveled march 2014.

very poor value
comfortable bed, otherwise nothing
This was incredibly poor value. It is a 30 minute walk partially along unmade paths to the town centre. Our booking excluded breakfast and no complimentary water was provided. The bed was comfortable and the room had a kettle (but no cups ! or coffee/tea), TV and fridge. In reading other reviews customers should check exactly which location is involved and whether the review includes ratings for other services (e.g. dhow cruises provided by the very helpful management and apparently conducted very successfully). Check which location is actually booked and request the walking time to the town (if without a car). We moved after one day to the Khasab Hotel which included a good breakfast and swimming pool at 20 per cent less than Al Taif rate. Do not book Al Taif unless nothing else is available and you are desperate for accommodation
