This would probably rate as a 3 star hotel. The rooms are very large with kitchenette, dining table and chairs and easy chairs so great for self catering. If you want to cook for yourselves you can ask for extra kitchen stuff if it's not already in your room. The cleaning staff are very helpful if you have any problems.... More

I do allot of travel for work and spend a large amount of time in Oman. The hotel is very damp and smells of mildew. I left the hotel after 2 nights and refused to stay there again. The issues with moisture are due to extremely poor maintenance of the air conditioning systems. The room I was put in had... More

We (family, two kids) got upgraded to a suite because they had not received our reservation via Agoda (first sign on the wall). The clerc at the reception was totally clueless but out came a very decisive manager who made this possible. The rooms are large in size but have a 70's style to them in terms of wall decorations....

I stayed for longer period in this haunted place, the worst I have ever seen in my 20 years of travelling. Can't be even rated as two star. It is probably being run as a charity organization. Junior staff is good but the hotel managemnt has no clue how to manage a hotel.If thing breaks down during weekend , it... More

Staff are very helpful, friendly, pleasant and accomodating. Rooms are double the size of a normal 5-star hotel room with a small kitchen (a real advantage) if you want to cook plus tea/cof. facility (with cof., tea, sugar, creamer provided) and a microwave oven what else you would look for? And wi-fi is absolutely free of charge which worked best... More

Helpful staff even when arriving after mid night. Large spacious rooms and an excellent air conditioning unit. Bathrooms small and kitchenette is what it is. Breakfast basic but covers your needs. Internet wifi was free and pretty good. Room service works to some degree and access to the Hyatt is the best part and probably why this place works. Being... More

I was working in Muscat and stayed in the Safari Village 11 times over a twelve month period (not my choice - the client had a corporate rate). The staff are very friendly and try to be helpful. Rooms are large and clean, bathrooms are generally OK but not brilliant. The breakfast is OK but the room is very disappointing.... More

Stayed in Safari apartment for 1 night. Very large rooms with small "kitchen" at the entrance. Rooms are clean but very very tied looking. Bathroom even more tied looking. The use of Grand Hyatt facilities next door is a great bonus. Service is friendly and efficient. Very decent value in Muscat.

Large clean rooms. Excellent location near the beach and the use of the pool next door at The Hyatt is a plus. Staff very helpful. Good for local restaurants, the Turkish, Karjeen, Mumtaz and Left Bank. Internet connection was free but I think that is about to change. My family joined me for part of the trip and enjoyed themselves... More

I have stayed at Safari Village three times on business trips and every time I found the staff very helpful, arranging my taxis to booking restaurants to even finding me an internet cable at midnight so that I could finish my presentation for the next morning. Having access to the sporting facilities and the beautiful pool of the Grand Hyatt... More
