At the Eastern end of the beach, this is a comfortable and well maintained place. Rooms were large and clean, and are spread across three separate buildings. Great ocean views and friendly staff. Onsite parking was a steep extra cost but there is plenty of street parking nearby (perhaps this charge is a summer thing when the town is busier).

I enjoyed my stay at Hyatt Centric. The staff is very accommodating and I love the raffle they do at check in for their Diamond members! Some of the equipment in the gym could be updated but the rooms and locations are great.

Rooms are VERY dated. Not what you would expect from a 4 star Hyatt. Hotel is a historical building and I get that they're trying to keep it a vintage feel, but that should have nothing to do with the rooms. Beds are somewhat comfortable, but the rest of the furniture and decor makes you feel like you're in a...

No hot water in the room - called three times over three days. Very poor customer service. I'll find another hotel next time. I usually stay at least three to four times a year but won't stay here again. Hot water is essential.

I found that they have multiple buildings on different streets and are not showen at time of booking. So call to verify location of room and make sure you get what you are looking for. Pool area was great and the main hotel is located right by the beach.
