This was our first trip to Puerto Rico and used our Marriott time share exchange to book the Hyatt in El Dorado. As we approached the complex maneuver shocked to see that majority of the facility was closed and fence to have. It was completely abandoned and overgrown with weeds and vines. The timeshare units however were off to the side and routing around separately. Apparently Hyatt closedown the hotel and have sold the property to Marriott for redevelopment.
The timeshares were nice but not anything special. Because of the reduced volume of vacationers many facilities were not maintained or operational. There was a miniature golf course on-site that was flooded and coordinate. One of the two Jacuzzis did not operate and there was not a very large crowd during the week that we stayed.
The beach however was very nice and clean. The staff in the main lobby were very helpful and informative and saves us the mistake of making the long trip to a site only to find that it was closed for Mother's Day which is a national holiday in Puerto Rico. There were many golf courses associated with other complexes in the area and numerous restaurants in El Dorado to choose from.
