We usually stay at Dreams in Puerto Aventuras but this year, because of the harsh winter in Conn., we just wanted to get to the beach ASAP. My wife researched the Cancun strip and we decided on the Hyatt. Although it's at the crux of the 7, we got there in 20 minutes and were soon on the beach drinking Sol. Here are the Pros and Cons:
-- Check-in was easy and the manager explained the 2 for 1 deal. My wife had already vetted the deal, which we accepted and recommend.
-- We booked an ocean-front room and that's what we got. Very pleased. We had a beautiful view of the open ocean.
-- Beach is great. They had to rebuild parts of it because of hurricane damage. The hotel's back door leads directly to a sandy and wide beach.
-- Pools are at a refreshing temp and are kept clean.
-- Beautiful area in the hotel's rear where about 6 Bali beds are lined up with glorious views of the beach and ocean. Competition is stiff for these.
-- Pool bar of course serves the swimming pool and the Bali bed area; the Beach Grill serves the beach area.
-- Nice, helpful staff. Had to call guest services a couple of times and matters were resolved quickly.
-- Had some good meals right there at the Grill, and when on the run, at the Deli, which also has gelato.
-- Love the sound of the ocean, but like others have stated, it's a shame that sound has to compete with the awful drone of monstrous AC units from neighboring hotels, and brain numbing disco thump from one of the nearby clubs.
-- I guess when the city or whoever repaired the beach, it was decided to make a breaker and one was indeed made -- with huge concrete blocks tumbled atop each other. Ugly, no two ways about it.
-- The beaches there are public, which is cool because you can interact with locals if you wish. But between the locals and the tourists, we sure can be careless with our litter on the beach and in the water. No work crews picking up the trash.
-- Have to pay for wifi. I just don't get that.
Overall a fun time at a nice place. Enjoy.
