The camp is nicely setup and the staff is friendly. That's where the positives end. The food (breakfast and dinner) was identical on both days and was extremely dissappointing. The chapati and chicken was ok but everything else was bland with small cans of soda and water. Our hot water boiler didn't work and have a few back and forths the staff gave us another room where everything was then ok. The owner didn't even respond although every room has a nice message asking anyone to contact him in case anything isn't ok. He doesn't seem to care for his camp that much. The camp itself is well setup and has a lot of potential if the owners would take hospitality a bit more seriously. This was the only dissapointing part of our Omani visit.

Just returned from two weeks touring Oman. The Alreem desert camp was the worst (and in fact the only bad) place we stayed in. The camp is not really in the 'desert' at all - it is actually on the edge of a nearby village with a small farm (goats etc) immediately behind the camp, over a low dune, through the broken down barbed wire. The room we were in was fine as regards the bed /bathroom and decor (as in TripAdvisor photo) etc, but staff were totally uninterested. I counted 6 other people in total in the camp when were there. Dinner was bad - burnt / carbonised chicken smothered with chilli (and I like spicy food - but this was near inedible) cooked on a barbecue with an alternative of buffet spaghetti or buffet vegetables. Tiny tins of Fanta / Pepsi/ 7Up only to drink. Breakfast was even worse than dinner.... and consequently really bad. Shame really, I suspect the owner does care about his camp, as he has polite written messages in the rooms, but is let down very badly by staff... Camp is possibly set up for tour groups. Unfortunately, there is no alternative accommodation within 30 miles in this part of Oman.

Located on the edge of a rocky desert, located right next to a big Sanddune but other than that not surrounded by it. The atmosphere is very nice with high quality tents and private bathrooms that were very decent. The food was really excellent (!) and staff was great and they took good care of the on site camels that we took for a lovely ride. The level of comfort was pretty good However I felt that our mattress was a bit too thin which hurt my hips at night. Perhaps I was a bit unlucky because the side of the mattress my partner was on, was decent.

Ofcourse it is not the real desert but we slept in a real tent. With good beds and a seperate bathroom. We we're just in time to see the sun set. Diner was very good in a nice restaurant. Afterwards there was a campfire. We slept very good there.

Spent 2 nights at Al Reem with adult children and baby grandson. Fantastic! Helpful friendly staff. Area unspoilt. Good balance being in desert but not too basic as had baby with us. Very peaceful and great food. So many interesting things and areas on the site to look at. Highlight was sand dunes in a 4x4. Exciting and you get to “play “ on sand dunes that come straight out of a picture book. Took my breath away! Close up with camels and crossed camel racing track. The guides who took us into desert were great fun and good humoured. The accommodation is wonderful. We were in a wood/ stone cabin that inside was authentic but with modern facilities .Daughter and son in law stayed in a tent. From the outside looked like just a big tent but inside huge bed and pretty fittings. They enjoyed evenings sitting outside tent looking across the hills and sand. Highly recommend more than2 nights if you want to really chill Special mention to Nassar and Khalid
