Sur's best choice

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 11, 2008

This hotel is a three star option and in my opinion the best you can choose in Sur.
Having stayed at both Sur Beach Hotel and Sur Plaza hotel I prefer this one. Rooms are fairly large and clean. It has a bar which seems popular also among locals.
We paid OMR50 including a small buffet breakfast. This was a walk-in price.
The restaurant serves decent Indian food.
The hotel has a pool. You can connect to WIFI in the reception area (not free of charge)
Like anywhere in Sur you would need a car. Nothing too much is happening around the hotel.

Directions: Clearly signposted on your way to Sur town center. It's situated some five minutes drive from the corniche/downtown Sur.

Don't have too high hopes

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 11, 2008

The name doesn't lie. The hotel is situated on the beach. But when we visited in late July the beach was too dirty to use. The water was clean but it was garbage all over the long-stretched beach. So having that in mind the hotel is a bad option if you come for some relaxing days by the sea. Please bare in mind that I didn't check whether they clean the beach or not in high season.
Sur is not known for good quality hotels - at least we didn't find any.
The restaurant at Sur Beach Hotel was good. We had some great Indian dishes here.
The rooms were simple and medium sized with balconies overlooking the ocean. Could need some paint and refurbishing. One night including a continental breakfast goes for OMR35
The hotel (two stars) is situated five kilometer or a 10 minutes drive from the town center. Nothing is happening in walking distance.
It has a internet cafe but it's painfully slow connection only half good for reading emails.
The staff is friendly though and will help you book a room at their sister-hotel in Ras al Hadd (45 minutes from Sur) where you can watch the turtles. This hotel in Ras al Hadd is also 35OMR but nicer rooms and a more decent choice.
If staying in Sur I would rather choose Sur Plaza Hotel (OMR50) - also situated a few minutes outside the town center. We stayed one night at both hotels.

Directions: Outside the town center of Sur towards the industrial area and the Muscat coastal road.

Souq Style

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 15, 2006

This place is in the middle of the souq and it at times can be a bit noisy but it is the cheapest option in Sur and you are close to the action. The friendly staff make up for the noise and these friendly guys can set up tours to see the turtles for about 20 RO a person which if you dont have a car is well worth the money. My criteria for hotels etc is 1: Cheap and 2: great experience. This one is both.

Unique Quality: Near the souq and friendly staff.

Directions: Near the main souq

Arabian Sea View

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 15, 2006

This friendly hotel benefits from a beach location and it has a 2km beach you walk along at night. The waves at night are gorgeous and the rooms have balconies making this my favorite option in Sur. It offers free accomodation to the Ras Al Hadd hotel (near the turtles). This hotel will you give you the best views of the Arabian Sea.

Unique Quality: Views and 2km beach

Directions: Near Roundabout 2
