Very easy to find, spacious rooms and very friendly staff. The hotel is only 10 minutes by car away from the turtle resort center and a much cheaper option. They are also offering in room dining through a local restaurant, which we liked. Will definitely come back!
Ras Al Hadd was the first place we visited after arriving to Oman and it immediately showed us the most typical Omani atmosphere.
The staff at the Guest House was very nice with us and tried to answer to all our questions.
The room was clean and functional and the sea sight from the lunch room was really amazing.
Very near to a beautiful beach where you can see turtles at night and the baby turtles looking for the sea during the hatching season!!
We hope to come back soon and repeat this beautiful experience!
Stayed for 2 nights in October to see the turtles at Ras Al Jinz, which was a lovely experience and we would definitely recommend.
- 10 mins to Ras al Jinz
- Right on the beach
- Cheap (but very basic) breakfast and dinner options
- Staff very kind and helpful - coffee brought to our room when we wanted, they did our laundry for free
- Room very basic but did the job and good value for money. Clean, air con worked fine
- WiFi a bit hit and miss
- food whilst cheap is basic/not tasty
- pool has no sunbeds
Also, we went on a boat trip with a guy who worked for the guest house who said we would watch turtles and snorkel. WOULD NOT recommend this - we went on a really dodgy boat and sat on cushions on wooden planks - very uncomfortable. Saw some turtles popping up for air which is cool but they weren’t close to us. Snorkelling was in one spot - given goggles only but no mouthpiece so couldn’t breathe! Saw some nice fish but nothing special. 90 mins and 35 OMR - what a waste.
My partner and I stayed at the Al Hadd guest house for one night. We found the service to be very polite, friendly and helpful.
The rooms were simple but clean and of a good size (mine had 2 beds). I also had a room with a sea view balcony which was lovely.
My only complaint was that the shower was not hot. More like warm - but given that the outside temperature was 38 degrees this was not too much of a problem!
The breakfast for 2 OMN was excellent value. So much food and again the service was excellent. Our waiter was very proud and made sure we had everything we needed!
The hotel is located close to the beach and has lovely views with ample parking. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for comfortable accommodation on turtle beach.
We booked at Ras Al Hadd because we wanted to go to the turtles. We paid 50 OMR for one night and that's to much money for it's value. The guest house is very basic.The refrigator was't on so we could't cool the food that we bought. The towels we got were still wet of the washing, there was no table, only one chair, there were stains on the sheets. The shower wasn't clean and wasn't working properly and the 'nozzle' fell down when we turned on the water. The internet wasn't working properly. Room was spacious but we had not view from the window. There are some kind of blinds for the windows that we couldn't open. Consequently we had to stay in a room with the curtains closed and the lights on. Walk to the beach is nice and we even saw some turtle swimming in a distance. We tried to call to the turtle reserve several times and book for the evening tour. We also sended an email. Still no answer. What a disappointment. The breakfast at the guest house is very simple. We had to eat on a table where you play table tennis at and on cardboard plates. The toasts were really like rubber, the milk (with already conrflakes in it) wasn't cold, the water in the bottle was lukewarm, ... . From the breakfast area you have a stunning view to the beach, but there were a lot of stains on the windows. The airco wasn't working so it was quite warm to sit there and have breakfast. When we looked down there was a lot of waste next to the used sheets. Those were lying on the ground. There is no elevator in the building. Staff was very friendly and helped us with our luggage to the third floor. Lucky we stayed only for one night. Then we moved on to Sur (Zaki hotel). This was much better and even cheaper. You better can stay at Sur and then drive to Ras Al Had (about 35mins.) I do not recommend the guest house to anyone.
