We spent a long weekend break in Muscat at the Grand Hyatt over a national holiday. The hotel is great for holidaymakers, but it is pricey, both for the room and any food. We stayed with friends and checked in at the appointed hour of 3pm but were told that our room was not ready. After a bit of a song and a dance from the receptionist trying to get us to pay for an upgrade he said that he had found us a room, but unfortunately it was at the opposite end of the hotel to our friends, which was an inconvenience. The room was OK, but no different to other rooms in 4 or 5* hotels. We did not eat breakfast in the hotel as it was too expensive, preferring to go out to Starbucks which was on the beach road about 10 minutes drive away (lovely location - recommended). The Grand Hyatt is located in the Embassy district, and is a good drive out of the main centre, so if you want to be in the centre of the action this is not for you. We had a car so could drive, and as it was a dry weekend because of the holiday we did not mind driving. Taxis are reasonable, so you could get to the centre without spending a fortune. We did have a problem with noise in our room, but the hotel manager did look after us in this regard, so we would return, but would request a pool view room next time. Gym is well equipped, and open all reasonable hours. We wanted to eat in one of the on-site restaurants one evening, but it rained, and as the restaurant was outdoors we were unable to do so,so went off site to Trader Vics in the Intercontinental.
Car parking was good and close to our room (we overlooked the car park). Pool are is great and of a high standard.
