I stayed at the hotel on my recent trip to Oman. As I had enough Hyatt points I decided to convert them for free nights rather than paying the relatively steep price for the rooms.
It's been said before, but the hotel does remind me a bit of the Palace in Sun City, South Africa. The lobby is pretty grand and "bling", and the garden/pool area is very nice and pretty.
I had a club room but with no ocean view. It was unfortunately situated above the hotel entrance, which meant it was close to the hotel's disco. At night you could hear the loud music so I would recommend choosing a room away from this side.
The room is not especially large, but reasonable size. The bathroom is pretty nice, with a wood screen shielding the toilet area away from the bathtub and sinks. There is a screen covered window next to the tub, and when it is opened you can see the rest of the room while sitting in the tub.
The breakfast at the club lounge is OK. However there is an outdoor patio and it's nice to sit outside for your breakfast.
Dining options are a bit poor within the hotel. There is no restaurant serving "local" or regional food. The only way to sample some of this is via the buffet in the cafe.
