    Great location - we went to see the Turtles at Ras Al Jinz and the must see Castle at Ras Al Hadd. Food great and beer available. Rooms need some work - they are substandard - but not bad value if they sort out the locks on doors and beds. Showers need replacing. Despite my reservation about the rooms I would go back.

    Great location within easy drive of turtle viewing”

    This place is a much more attractive and affordable accommodation option than the turtle reserve's purpose built hotel at Ras al Jinz. En-suite room was small, basic but complete with air conditioning and fridge. Anyway who needs a big hotel room when there's a gorgeous beach on your doorstep? Beach complete with loungers and sun shades. The snorkeling was good too. Nice open air bar overlooking the beach. Staff helpful and friendly. A good choice for us!

    Location,peace,dinner buffet

    If you like to get away from it all this is a perfect beach chill out. Despite the rustic outer appearance, the rooms are surprisingly comfortable with flat screen TV, air con and a pretty good shower- if you've booked a room with a private bathroom. Take everything you need with you as it's pretty far to Sur (over 30 kilometers) and they do have fridges in the rooms, so you can keep drinks chilled. The staff are helpful and you can book turtle watching trips and a dolphin watching dhow cruise from the resort. The sea is crystal clear and you can hire snorkeling equipment/ canoes at the resort- plenty of colorful fish to see. This resort is perfect for a chilled few days away from it all- rustic Oman at its best!

    Great Experience”

    The food, the beach and the goats along the way.

    Our stay at Turtle Beach Resort was wonderful and relaxing. We had a successful journey to the area making tourist stops along the way. The drive to see the turtles is late or really early, but not too far and well worth they money saved from the other resort nearby. The food and beach were the best things about this place. The food was excellent and plentiful and the beach was clean and well kept. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone.

    Fantastic location but food lets it down”

    We stayed here for one night while visiting the turtles. We enjoyed a lovely evening drinking beer which is very reasonably priced and enjoyed our dinner. The breakfast we had in the morning was probably the WORST I've ever had in Oman. I wouldn't give it to a dog. Rooms were lovely and clean and beach was well maintained. Staff very helpful throughout. Overall great value but again I will have nightmares about the breakfast

    Relaxed, friendly, quiet

    We came to see the turtles in Ras Al Jinz, the hotel is only 20 min away. The friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and the perfect location made us want to stay much longer. The room was a little run down and for the money we paid the showers and bathrooms could use an overhaul. All in all a nice place to stay, we will be back.

    great evening buffet, close to turtle beaches and great snorkelling

    We loved the turtle beach resort and will definately go back - for 2 nights next time. The buffet was really good and drinks prices very reasonable. Beautiful in the evening when the bar/restaurant area is all lit up. The turtle viewing was great - we had heard mixed revies but we had a great experience.

    Peaceful and relaxing”

    location, beach, quiet

    We had a wonderful stay with our two daughters at Turtle beach. The location enabled us to relax and see turtles. We were able to take our 8 and 4 year old snorkling in the calm and shallow water and they got to see puffer fish, box fish and many other little fish. The food was lovely and there were options for vegetarians too. The only improvement that needs to be made is with the dessert. There was often only creamy food and being lactose intolerant I wasn't able to each dessert on all the nights I was there. Perhaps even having a fruit salad as an option.

    Staff, beach, close to Ras al Jinz

    We called ahead as we were arriving late, and were very impressed that the staff kept food back for us from the buffet. They also reserved us a place on the 4am turtle tour. The room was big and clean, breakfast was good, the beach was really clean but unfortunately we didn't have a chance to go swimming. We would definitely go back.

    Good experience at the Turtle Beach Resort”

    The food, the sea, and the staff.

    We had a very pleasant stay at Turtle Beach. The staff were very helpful and courteous. It is a little out of the way, but a great place to stay if you are interested in watching the turtles at Raz Al Jinz. However, I found it a little overpriced. Their top notch suites provided amenities that in most hotels would be fairly standard. All the rooms we saw were clean, and the beach was beautiful.

    Great for a night stay to see the turtles”

    Frankly, we didnt spend much time in the resort as we arrived in the evening. Check in was smooth, we had buffet dinner which was provided and headed out to the turtle museum them after that. Came back, slept, woke up, showered and break fast before checking out. So for that, the room we paid for can be considered considering the amount of time we spent there. However, staff are polite, room is clean and spacious, the resort layout is good and atmosphere is relaxing esp in the morning. Good views of the beach.

    Resort is on the beach, clean and semi cheap

    We thought we had booked an air conditioned room but got a fan instead. It was surprisingly cool at night though. Having a morning swim was great and considering the bathrooms were shared, they were quite clean. Lots of children when we were there and during the turtle tour they were a bit unruly but there is not much the resort can do about that. Otherwise, I was happy with this accommodation.

    The location was good with a private beach ..courteous staff

    Pleasant stay as the resort though a little secluded had all provisions for keeping the guests entertained .The restaurant section is busy with guests from early morning till midnight with great view of the beach ..when evening sets in there is provision for live music which goes well with the ambience.The boarding pricing is a little weird though as there are separate charges for each person staying in a room ..Generally a double bed room has provision for atleast 2 adults and a child and then one needs to pay for additional person ..In this case every single person needs to pay .. Food is moderate to good with fair options ..Staff is very courteous and helpful which made the stay even better ..All is all I woukd like to recommend this place but make sure of the tariff and how many peple doess it cover
