Probably the only place where tourists can sleep along the coast between Sur and Qurayyat. Hence, there is no alternative. Rooms are clean and well air-conditioned with a mini refrigerator, a kettle and a TV. Having read many reviews about poor quality of catering, we eat in the nearby village of Tiwi. Service is limited to the reception and restaurant...

Wadi Shab resort is one of the rare hotel options in the Sur-Tiwi-Wadi Shab area. It is absolutely perfect to visit the 2 wadis (Tiwi and shab). While it is a bit dated, it is located on a beautiful beach, has nice comfortable rooms with great seaviews. Food served for dinner and breakfast was excellent and we found the staff...

The hotel is perched on the hill overlooking the Sea of Oman, very close to Wadi Shab. The hotel features an access to public beach area, an outdoor pool and free Wi-Fi in restaurant area. Free private parking is possible on site. The staff is very helping and polite. The room was clean with a comfy big bed and amazing...

It's just a shame there are no real alternatives in the area. As you enter the "resort" over the incomplete road and park in the no shaded car park you may well question a lack of attention to detail. My positives: good shower, restaurant was nice location (if you can ignore the noise from the water pump which activated for...

I do not consider the room rates cheap so I was very disappointed to find a grotty room by a major highway in a rather desolate part of Oman. It's on the beach which is the hotel's only feature. The rooms are run down, dirty, have poor water pressure. Most things were broken and old such as the hairdryer. The...

This hotel is convenient only because it is close to Wad Shab. It is not a "four stars resort@! The service, the rooms, he toilet, the quality of food (and the "restaurant" facing the highway!) is a two stars, no more. The price is absolutely high for the quality of this place. We paid around 250€ and we expected a...

The hotel room was very old and dirty, the bathrooms very smelly. We never had enough water to shower. The price was ridiculously high and breakfast not even included, which is actually not a problem, as it looked and tasted horrible. They didn't even offer real coffee. The service was unexpectedly very poor. Usually people in Oman are known for...

The location of the hotel is excellent (only a couple km from the amazing Wadi ) with a great beach with spectacular blue sea water. The beach is convenient for camping as well. The staff is very helping and polite; ciusine is mostly Indian; the room was clean with a comfy big bed; wifi was poor; the shower was weak;
