    There are a couple of bars on the territory and a very big main restaurant. They serve a buffet style food and also a la cart. We had a half board and I must admit really like their food especially in the evening.

    The hotel is situated in 1 hour drive from Oman and 20 mins drive from Barka. You'll need a car to get there as it is a bit in the middle of the nowhere.

No hotel bunker. The rooms are individual blocks scattered over the area. We had a sea view. Is somewhat limited, as the sea was a bit away and the grundstückgrenze a small wall. But you had a beautiful view of the offshore islands. The rooms are all on the ground floor with patio. Air conditioning we just needed to cool down before going to bed - other than that, the climate in november so, that one good without air conditioning in the night could manage. Our room was very clean and the level of equipment good. Large and good bed. ... Bathrooms are in good condition, no mold or similar. Guests were mostly german-speaking and for a scuba diver's hotel was the average age but surprisingly high. About 40 to 45 years old. read hotel review

    The rooms are large and clean. The möblage in good condition and not worn. We had a large bed with very good mattresses. The rooms are on the ground floor with patio. View of the sea we by a low wall is a limited. There is no coffee maker in the rooms. Refrigerator/minibar stocked with alcoholic drinks available. Toilet and bathroom in a, clean and in a good condition. Air conditioning is quiet. We did, but only to cool down before going to bed, because the nachtemperaturen at 22 degrees.

    Breakfast buffet is adequate. Coffee is ready in cans and drinkable. If another coffee to have wants must one that pay. In the evening there were always theme nights (italian, arabic, indian, bbq, fish, mix...) But always at least not to the issue of matching food for those, with the issue of not. Despite german chef of course no pork. Plenty of starters and salads. Also the dessert buffet is about 10m long. Many very creamy things. Alcohol prices are too expensive - bottle Wien so 40, - €. Generally the kitchen is good. Only, the cook very much with probably finished mischgemüse (especially with the curries) and there is already times a dessert on the first day warm and on 2. the same cold (rhubarb crumble).

    There was from our point of view no entertainment thank god. You booked the hotel only because of the attached diving school. Diving was rather expensive - even if one considers, on a boat without any comfort sits. There is not even a toilet on board. Also the guides not supported. From the water climbed with full garb - what my wife was arduous. Nobody takes the bottles from. The view good and the dive sites ok - but really nothing special. The pool was well maintained and in a good condition. Enough beach chairs at the pool and on the beach. Disturbing was the frequent wind. For children there is a small playground and a paddling pool. Tennis courts available, as well. The riding was rather adventurous. 2 horses is right next door. The amateurs is the stirrup torn. The workhorse only faster has become, as it home was. It is at the beach along ridden, which itself is very nice.

    To the beach it was about 200m on site. You are in the most remote block of the hotel, has already 500 m to go to the restaurant is. There were enough beach chairs at the pool and on the beach. The beach is maintained and is often deserted. At low tide you have a good tsück until you into the swimming comes. Since we had a rental car we were flexible. The hotel was located in the 'middle of nowhere'. The next village was 3 kilometer. as there is a supermarket and two small restaurants. We didn't try it. There is apparently also mostly grilled chicken (before the door grilled). Otherwise there was in the village mostly goats... Friday (keyword freitagsgebet ) is available in the Oman our saturday. The exclusively male youth cleaning their cars and it presents on the beach. So you can also on the beach sufficient traffic. These but only on friday evening.

    We had a seaview room. The rooms are very comfortably furnished with a large bed, a sofa, table and a closet. There is also a safety deposit box.

    At the bar one gets cocktails. Alcohol is only from 6:00 p. m.. The rates are quite upscale, 0.5 liter of beer cost 7 €, 1 bottle of wine around the 3 0 €. The food was stunning. Soups, a rich starters buffet, various main foods (curry, steaks, fish...) And always something freshly grilled. The dessert buffet left nothing to be desired. The waiters are very conscientious. It will quickly shood around. The service really impressed us, since there always with a smile takes place.

    Kite school -6 suns We stayed in the al sawedi a beginner kitekurs made. Issa and olla of the kiteschule felt great in the 'art' of kitens introduced. I would recommend it to anyone, this to try out. With issa and olla makes you this sport fun. The wind is not too strong, thus also beginners well. Also after completion of the course we were optimally cared for. Many thanks to you two for the great teaching and beautiful days with you! Diving school -2 suns In fact, i'm dive. The diving but disappointed. The operation may be professional, reminds but strongly of a mass treatment. There are 5 tauchbote, the during our stay fully occupied. Tauchausfahrten always with 2 dives and relatively short oberflächenintervall between 1st and 2. dive. Also bad view. The 1st dive is my brother-in-law as' introduction scuba divers' mitgetaucht (he has no course). He had problems with the pressure and could not so quickly down. The instructor has it however always dependent on its depth to come. That cannot be. I await with a schnuppertauchgang a professional companion, one absolutely tauchunerfahrenen supported. The result: ear pain without end and at home a juicy ear infection with antibiotics and so on. Beach -6 suns At the beach there are enough loungers with umbrellas, but, the beach is never crowded. Furthermore, the range around the couches always cleaned, we could perfectly relax. To positively evaluate is also, that not through entertainment annoyed.

    The hotel is about 1 hour's drive from the airport. After al sawedi about 2-3 kilometer. The hotel is actually located bit exposed, but you know, finally, where you can go. We enjoyed the location very much. You can take the hotel's taxi to the shopping lead. We booked 3 tours booked from hotel. A individually together leave. No problem at all. Prices were in order. You had enough time, to all extensively to see. Wanting tours: barka-fish market, nakhl /nutmeg city tour/nutmeg by night

Please note: this is a pure diving hotel! If you don't dive will probably plenty of reading material need or bore to death. The hotel is about 60 minutes away from the airport of muscat in north. It was 2011 from extra divers for 10 years leased and is now a pure diving hotel run.

    There were rooms with a lake view and rooms with garden views. We had a room with lake view. To see but it was only the wall, the around the grounds. The room was, the air conditioner apart very quiet, the neighbors we got almost nothing with. The room with garden view clearly nicer view. But who needs the already? As i said, it is a scuba diver's hotel, because you are actually only for sleeping in the room. Our room belonged to the renovated, it was in good condition and clean. Only the bathroom is extremely inconvenient. There are hardly any counter space and if you take a shower, recessed the entire bathroom. Apropos shower... Mornings and evenings there was only cold water, in the late afternoon only hot.

    The last two years in al sawadi working german chef Thomas has its cuisine perfectly in hand, the food is also very tasty and healthy prepared. There was tasty desserts and long meal times. Breakfast gives it from 7a 10 o'clock, dinner of 19 to 22 hours enough, in between you in the bar there was a quick bite to eat. A omanische curiosity are the local alkoholgesetze. After you, it is not allowed between 15 and 18 o'clock alcohol to sell. Only exception: the friday, the highest islamic holiday of the week, durchgebechert are. So it is, that the decoration beer sometimes fell into the water, if the boat is not before 15 o'clock again to country.

    We come to the pool... That is the only real weak point in this hotel. The pool is not only small for such a hotel, it is also relatively neglected and besought the sharp broken kanalgittern an accident for. The ladder is rusty, loose and squeaked. No idea how long the it still makes. The sunshade at the pool is also poor. You had the choice... Either you ignore the warning sign and a coconuts frazzled, or you do just like many of the others and is around 6 hours on, the towels under one of the four partyzelte too, as sun protection are intended to serve. Oh, in the sun burn is a possibility. Luckily we were the whole time diving and had only on our last day with the 'pool', which. But the real reason for our stay at the al sawadi hotel was the proximity to the daymaniyat islands. Next to the chef is the diving station 2. important factor for a successful diving vacation, because the cook is vital for the health of the guests responsible, the diving basis for the organisational the end. While we Thomas and its cooks only on all praise, this is on the extra divers operated diving unfortunately not completely sunday What we liked: the service is great, is second to none, even if some reefs old, lost fishing nets hanging and now completely worthless fish kill, the daymaniyat islands a top-service with beautiful hard and soft corals, as well as a hotel, the to be matched. The extra divers, we have somehow wrong-footed, which was also for the good part of the political situation in Egypt lag. It is beautiful and in good Egypt the diving centers to close and the staff in the Oman to send, but you should at least incorporate and a few days with the local diving guides bus leave, the area as your vest pocket know. But it did not happen. The poor were without induction on us released and made error, because it is not so good very familiar as someone, the there for a few months or years. The daymaniyat islands are no schönwettertauchgebiet. There is sudden emerging currents and partly bad we didn't see a, all in the planning consideration want. Another weak point the basis is the handling of nitrox. Here there is no protocol to its measurement can schedule. Measurements without the divers signed protocol violate the requirements of most tauchverbände. Should happen, is statement, against statement. Nevertheless, the service makes up for much again and would be recommended, the once large swarms of fish, beautiful healthy reefs and fishing at a spot to see wants.

    Honestly? Was pretty no matter. What does the supermarket in 5 kilometer distance? We were here for diving! And the diving with daymaniyat islands, the unseco heritage site status and a unique intact underwater world record. For such a thing one goes into a diving hotel. So, as was the situation? The location was great, because the al sawadi the best ausgangsmöglichkeit the daymaniyat islands! There is no entertainment or other events. Would be useless, most divers are to at least 22 o'clock in the springs.

The vacation was than pure diving vacation and has its purpose fully met! The hotel is actually kept a bit rough, but room was large, clean & tidy. Bathroom somewhat in need of renovation, but good size with air circulation. Bed/mattress was a bit hard, but clean. Tv was with 3 german channels (RTL,ZDF and RTL II) the news enough. Air conditioning also with sparschaltung. The staff's hospitality represents some other destination in the shade. The kitchen (very varied & delicious) was always great. If you after the holiday not plus on the Waage looks, must be a permanent ... knockers are. Diving center well organized, but sometimes exaggerate the casee on the boat something the speed is concerned ( schiffskranke the tablets think!). Hotel is wonderful: unaffected, only a boat (own) on reef, a lot of fish and from & to a highlight (turtles, nurse shark, rays, seeschlagen, morey eels). Various excursions are bookable, but due to the high temperatures end may already a strain. read hotel review

Hotel a hotel only for divers, not for other erlebnisurlauber. No travel agency, any travel info-or care. Chavs tv only worked without messages, air conditioning too loud, bathroom very spartan. Beach: no white, but brown sand, bathing shoes necessary, thiede clearly, local car and quads drive despite verbotsbeschilderung daily at the beach walking, hundemeuten at the beach scare the vacationers. Local forces of law and order are hardly or very apathetic. There is at the beach No vendors. It is always sandy windy. The liegenausstattung was good everywhere, at the beach with wind protection. Respect, kitesurferparadies. Diving: professionally organized, authentic ..., friendly, professional. Tauchjahreszeit not now, later rather, since little view, cold water, no großfisch. Conclusion it is reasonable value for money not. The 'hotel under german leadership' is unfortunately only a advertising stunt. read hotel review

Only downside for us in this hotel there were the extremely poor lighting in the room, and the ultralangsame wi-fi. Otherwise we were very satisfied. You have to know, that the hotel quite isolated and without rental car actually nothing great can be done, if you are not on an organized trip in. Al sawadi i ... would only for diving there. If you seaside holiday, offers saalach river or al husn the better quality. read hotel review

The hotel is perfect for a quiet beach holiday in a casual atmosphere. Recommendable is before a trip, because the hotel is very remote and activities only about the hotel can be arranged. The buffet during dinner was excellent. Every night another motto the quality of the dishes was not to beat. read hotel review

The hotel lies directly at the sandy beach and there is enough chairs and umbrellas and lots of space to relax. The location is but very isolated, in the area is nothing else. The rooms were newly renovated, well equipped, clean, very big, with a furnished terrace and the bathroom had a large rain shower. The breakfast was a bit sparse, but it was the dinner in buffet form really excellent, there were enough seats in the outdoor area and the alcoholic beverages were still affordable. The service staff was very attentive and friendly, already on the 2. evening knew ... each room number by heart and which you probably wanted to drink. In the lobby free wi-fi available. read hotel review

Altogether it concerns a middle class hotel with in need of renovation facilities. Very well organized, the Extradivers-guided diving, the outstanding on our wishes was received. Furthermore is praiseworthy is the friendly staff of the restaurant and wellness center. The fitness. Area we didn't use. The rooms (we were in a ocean side view -bungalow building) are big enough, are however very spartan. The furniture have already some years behind itself. The bathroom is furnished nicely, however also here the furnishing old and needs some repair. For example it is with a rainshower, the however only partially worked. The seals ... the shower were broken. The shelves are crooked angebraucht the verziehrungs - mozaiksteine lack partly. In the room have the fridge and the hairdryer a flea market-character (yellowed). The cleaning of the rooms was poor. Our bathroom included mountings, washbasin and duschabtrennwand (glass) were not at all cleaned. The broken seal of the toilet-flushing is the room service not at all noticed. This was only on demand 'repaired '. Throughout the week worked our telephone not. The problem left until the departure not eliminate. The nachschränkchen and the table in the room were not dusted or wiped. The hotel lies one hour from muscat; there is however always the possibilities with a taxi, the from the reception could be organized, in the capital to drive. The transfer from /to the airport is punctual. read hotel review

Very positive surprise for 3.5 stars hotel

Stay at the al sawadi beach resort extra divers diving station from 1-12-2012 until 8-12-2012 with 10 tg (each 2 times per day). The hotel completely under german leadership-chef -manager and chef Thomas. Wi-fi in the main building free. Entry with welcome drink and immediate room assignments, as well as luggage room bring unburocratic and quick. Hotel circa to 50% booked, double room right single room with extra charge of 270 Euro/week, what i found little justified think. Room large enough, a bit worn, but it was good and equipped with everything, even outlets adapter (english electrical plug me 3 ... finger ), double bed with 2 times bed sheets and 2 times ceilings. Only thing missing was the kettle for tea (i have always own). Cleaned daily, not always thoroughly (washbasin for example), otherwise good and friendly. Bedlinen 1 time week. Kilimaanlage adjustable and good, tv with ZDF, RTL and RTL II. Shower and sanitary are modern in very good condition. Free safe. Distance to the main building, restaurant, beach and diving basis not long, the complex is but very spacious with a lot of green, is located on the tip of a small peninsula, rarely so which saw, clean and tidy. Become momentary colorful tiles on the tenements appropriate. The food is for 3.5 stars hotel simply excellent, lamb, beef, schaff, hüner, fish - everything tasted simply good. Uin our group was also a chef and has the work his colleagues very highly rated, all standarden are met, very clean, friendly, good dishes and cloth napkins. No animation, is rather uin a beach, divers and sports hotel not necessary, but good fitness center. Furthermore recommendable travel agency Oman adventure tours with Markus mason as chef and travel guide. With us 2 time tours ( kanyoning and jeep-tour carried out, as well as althauptstadt nizwa-visit)-super and very inexpensive. You should definitely make, if 1-2 days free from the diving are. A mosquito-spray at this time of the year recommendable, as well as long house for city tours and sightseeing. read hotel review

    The chalets are functional for 2 people designed. A 4-star resort but definitely not represents! A king size bed with 2 nachtschränkchen is available in the large living area. Further there is a desk with old crt (but 3 german tv channels), 1 armchair, 1 sofa, 1 lamp, 1 luggage rack in the room. In the corridor there was a closet for the clothes, as well as some shelves for our holiday clothes. A room safety deposit box (free of charge), as well as a refrigerator (not filled) round the furnishings in the corridor from. The bathroom has a toilet, sink and a shower with mehrfachduschkopf. We only laboriously halfway warm water receive, which with 40 °c daytime temperature anyway not everyone's wish. Disturbing were the loudness. Our neighbor had his tv so loud, that we in the middle of the night became awake.

    As sensational, i would like to the kitchen designate. Here is based on the with good reason the high grups. An extensive buffet for breakfast with additional preparation of eigerichten and/or crepes/waffles leave in my opinion no wishes unfulfilled. Very surprising was the provision of nussnougatcreme for the süßfraktion. Naturally there were also different jams, honey and maple syrup for breakfast. Freshly brewed, ground whole bean coffee and tea were constantly by the diligent service staff ( philippinas ) refilled. Alternatively, there was hot water for the preparation of nescafé products of every kind. Milk and several cereal completed the buffet from, of course, the usual positions of fruit, juices, bread and local-oriental food offered. In the evenings there was also an extensive, daily changing offer as a buffet. Issues such as' indian night ' defined the nature of the food before-, main-and desserts. Alternatively there was always the option is pasta of their own. Different pasta or dishes, vegetarian or minced meat-procedure sauce free be combined.

    For the waiters you have to clearly between the areas of difference. During the reception, the lobby very sober works, one is inclined to say reluctantly works, the team for breakfast and dinner extremely welcoming. Less pleased the room service, the similar to the front desk staff just has done its work. Never were the towels for show not available for abuse, mostly the 'room service' very early in the morning, once a large sandy area in shoe cabinet as well not swept.

    The complex features a lobby in english style with desk, reading corner, unfortunately only a shop and a small travel agency. An internet cafe with 3 computers can for a fee be used. Very pleasant was the free use of wi-fi in the close area around the internet cafe. A pub in the main building, as well as a beach bar for entertainment. Interesting is, that typically arabic dressed men their thirst in the bar with a 'Heineken' beer deleted, without this particularly to hide. A pool with small non-swimmers-and abgekettetem swimmers area was the center the grounds. An empty hot tub, and a children's pool were the most numerous crow as a fountain and swimming pool. Sufficiently many, well-preserved aluminiumliegen with spanntuch, towels and parasols are available at pool and beach free of charge available. During our stay some pavilions in addition set up, more shade to allow. A wellness spa adjoins the complex at, but i didn't visited or even use it.

    The resort hotel lies lonely on the kilometer long beach of al sawadi. The spacious hotel area with a garden is ideal for active (diving) guests. The complex is about 80 kilometers away from the airport muscat area, a shuttle bus goes regularly to muscat old town (for a fee - circa 90 minutes per distance). The extra divers diving base the hotel has in 2012 in management took over.
