We stayed at the Hyatt for 6 nights during Christmas. The personel were sweet and very attentive. We stayed 3 persons in a double room, which was no problem, the room was spacious and nicely decorated. We had a fantastic view over the pool and the ocean.
Try, if possible to get a room on the 4th floor (top floor).
Broadband internet is availible at the room (not wireless), and is quite expensive. For 7 days we payed 75 OMR (appr. 135 €).
The hotel has 4 good restaurants, we tried 3 of them. Tuscany is named (as we heard from the personel at the Al Bustan Palace) "best restaurant in Oman" for many years in row.
Breakfast is served in the buffet reastaurant on the 1st floor, you can choose to dine both indoor and outdoor overlooking the garden and the pool area. The buffet restaurant also serves lunch and dinner, both are very good.
Anywhere we went at the hotel we were always met with great service and friendly staff, always providing that "little extra".
The hotel is not as grand as the Al Bustan Palace, although much sweeter staff and gives you more the feeling of being at home.
Local "sheiks" use the nice lobby area for business and coffea deals, rather than being over populated by tourists.
Hyatt is located at the beach, the water is clean - the sand/beach is not as delicate as you might imagine, but ok. Although be aware that it is not a private beach - that means bikini is not tolerated (use swimmingsuit).
Other locations nearby:
*Grand Mosque (10 min drive)
*Al Seeb airport (20 min drive, 7 OMR in taxi)
*Mutthra souk (10 min drive)
*Muscat old town (15 min drive)
*Shopping mall (15 min drive)
As Muscat has no clear city center, everything is spread along the coast from the airport to Al Bustan. We found Hyatt to be located closest to most of the places we wanted to visit.
If we were to visit Muscat again, this would definitley be the hotel of our choice.
