The hotel is not 5 star, but it offers comparable accommodations to the pricey reserve at a fraction of the cost. The rooms are clean, the manager on site is absolutely helpful considering he probably has to explain the process for visiting the turtle reserve for all guests that stay at the hotel. You can walk from the Hotel to the reserve for the nightly turtle viewing. Feb/Mar is not a good time for Turtles, but we were fortunate. If we ever visit again, the Guest House will be our first choice. The breakfast is somewhat lacking so we drove down to the Reserve which has a standard breakfast buffet.

We verbleven 1 nacht in Ras al Jinz turtle guesthouse. Fijn ontvangst, mooie grote eenvoudige kamer en badkamer. Schoon. Uitstekend ontbijt. Heel vriendelijk personeel(Hassan). Op loopafstand van Turtle Reserve waar je met een gids in de avond(rond 20.30) naar de schildpadden gaat. Let op in de periode feb maart zijn er weinig schildpadden die aan land komen. Wij zagen twee grote groene schildpadden. Eten kun je bij een resort of bij een lokaal restaurant. Wij aten bij de locale bevolking. Hassan weet wel waar.

This Guest House is 0.5 Kms from the start of theevening and morning turtle watching tours. Check in to the guest house then book your evening tour at the turtle sanctuary 0.5kms away. Book if you can at 2pm and you should be in one of the first groups. Then enjoy the white sand beach 1 km away until 5pm when you have to leave. The dinner at the guest house is optional, it's basic omani Indian (Dahl meatballs smoked fish etc) but ok for 3.5 RO. Go to the turtle sanctuary at 8.30pm we had 200 other spectators so it's a bit of a scrum but by 9pm it sorts itself out and groups of 20 go 1 km to see the turtles laying. January is not a preferred month for turtles but still we saw 3. No flash photography and take a jacket it can be chilly. The guest house rooms are clean and spacious and Hassan the owner friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good fried eggs sausage scrambled eggs cornflakes fruit etc

I stayed in this hotel with my husband and 2 friends and we were very happy with it. The staff is very welcoming and helpufull. The location if you want to do the tour at the turtle reserve is just perfect. There is even an hidden beach located 500 meters behind the hotel that we enjoyed. Room are correct and breakfast is really good. We highly recommand this hotel !

Ras-al-Jinz turtle reserve guest house - это прекрасный гостевой дом недалеко от главного входа в черепаший заповедник (300-500м). На ресепшн вам предложат оманский кофе и финики. Номера чистые и оснащены душем, кондиционером, чайником и чайными принадлежностями, бесплатной питьевой водой... Завтраки очень вкусные, хоть выбор и не слишком велик. Просмотр черепах ведётся либо вечером (20-22 часа), либо рано утром (5 часов). Уточняйте на ресепшн у Хасана, самого приветливого сотрудника гостиницы:)
