We were a couple, stayed at the reserve in the first week of October. It was my third visit to see the turtles, my earlier visits were before the reserve started. There are two turtle tours, first at 8.30 PM and the second at 4 AM. People staying at the reserve don’t need to pay for the tours as it...

We drove to Ras al-Jinz Turtle Reserve and arrived at night. Initially we weren't sure that we'd arrived at a hotel because the building looked more like a center for something. Our room was simple, but adequate. The turtle viewing experience was fantastic. We went on both the evening and sunrise turtle viewings, and being guests at the hotel we...

The Ras al Jinz Reserve complex includes a main building with a restaurant, small museum, and gift shop, plus 19 hotel rooms. A short walk uphill from the main building there is a horseshoe...

Wonderful location but the Eco tents were a little smelly and really too close together. The food was basic as were the tents, However the real pearls were watching turtles laying eggs and baby turtles scuttling along the beach to escape into the ocean

The only ecological aspect of the "tents" is the location and the opportunity to see the turtles very close by. For the rest... the quality/price rate is not fair at all. Positive points: rooms are clean, food, beds, location. Negative points: bathrooms, tents are very close to each other, price is excessive, the denomination ("eco") is only for commercial purpose...

In the morning we had a wonderful view of the beach and watched the sunrise in awe. The food at the restaurant was on of...

Go here if you want to see the turtles and for no other reason. The hotel guests get preference on the visits to the beach (Ie go in group 1) but it gets very busy with other visitors. The guides are very knowledgeable and try to keep everyone in check - your experience will probably depend a lot on the...

I stayed at the Ras al-Jinz Turtle Reserve for one night as part of a tour to Oman. The turtle experience was great, both at night and in the early evening, even if one of the guide walked too fast and risked losing visitors in the pitch dark. On the contrary, the hotel experince was not good. The property is...
