I brought a party of divers to the Oman Dive Centre after being let down at the last minute by another dive operator. The dive centre is managed by a great couple, Patrik and Katja who were hugely flexible and helpful and helped me rescue what could have been a disaster of a weekend. The dive centre is situated in...

Stayed there with 2 other couples last weekend. Very relaxed atmosphere and the staff (mainly the local Omanis are exceedingly helpful). The accommodation is very basic but that is all part of what this hotel/resort is all about. Perfect if you are staying with other couples or a small group, unlike a hotel room, each bungalow has a porch where...

The place is very nice that is undeniable but the service and the food are truly bad. You sit down at your table and you need to wait for 10 minutes before someone takes you a menu and you even have to ask for out while the waiters mind thei own business. Moreover even the time you actually wait for...

The Oman dive center offers great opportunities for diving and seeing different sealife in numbers. However, there are some shortcomings that need to be addressed. First, the diving: the number of fish, creatures and coral was amazing! We saw several types of creatures ( nudibranches, rays and eels) that we have never seen before. Although visibility only averaged around 8...

We went there for the weekend. We couldn't have asked for a better location. Cabins are on the beach with a beautiful view. Given it is a bay, the water is shallow and hence safe for kids. Beach is very well maintained. Clean water and many schools of fish. We saw a turtle and a couple of sting rays as...

We went diving and snorkeling for one morning with the Oman Dive Center. Welcomed by likable Mario we quickly agreed on a trip to Bandar Khayran for the next day. We found good safe gear including a computer if you don't bring your own, nice boat in top condition with good crew, friendly, welcoming and professional. Our guide Maggie was...

Most importantly though they are clean! We really liked the food and found the offerings to be very tasty and fresh! beautiful place to go for the weekend and just...

This was our third trip to the Oman Dive Centre in six years. It was a week trip based around diving. A great relaxing week as the place was not very busy. We enjoy this because of the location, Secluded, no shops just the resort. 36 beach huts on a private beach, the other side of the beach is for...
