Stayed for one night rather than drive home after St David's Day dinner and dance in the Hyatt.
The room and we were upgraded was big, with a balcony overlooking the pool and out to sea.
One hell of a trek from reception to the room and no lift.
Let me explain.... there are lifts, but they are placed in the middle of the wings, so get to my room by lift, it would have meant walking a considerable distance to the middle of the wing, travel one floor up then walk the SAME distance back to my room, as my room was at the reception end of the wing, with only stairs for access.
The hotel is now 20 years old, and I remember it opening all those years ago when I first came to Oman, but it STILL has that WOW factor when you standing the reception and look out over the lawn and pool at night.
Breakfast.... OK, but the service was somewhat lacking and they charged me for it even though I was B&B.. Took two weeks to get that back! NOT impressed.
