“This hotel is for romance”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Fantastic hotel. Solomon was a great help and saw to our needs. The night manger Enrique Brizuela was tremendous and made for a great trip, thanks. The swim up rooms are fantastic. Our room was 104. Facing the ocean, the swim up rooms on the left are quietist . The middle rooms by the main pool would be more active. With room service , a premium stocked mini bar and swim up pool there is no need to leave the room. Skip duty free coming this hotel. None of the pictures do the hotel justice, it is much better than it photographs. One or two people brought their "16" year olds , how selfish of the parents. A great place for romance and relaxation . The food was great, the ground spotless and service nonstop. Will be back in late September to watch the turtles hatch.

Room Tip: Get a swim up room

The service at this hotel is wonderful! The staff was so nice and attentive. I was thoroughly impressed. The view is amazing! The water is so blue it's almost blinding. We enjoyed eating at all the restaurants. Spice was good for breakfast. Pelicanos was great for lunch. I would recommend booking upon arrival for Chefs Plate, Maria Marie, and Asiana. We were unable to eat at Asiana due to a short stay. Chefs Plate was by far our best meal. Please know men are expected to wear pants and closed toe shoes at Chefs Plate. It's a fine dining experience. It was SO GOOD! If I had one recommendation, it would be the hotel might want to consider a separate area for listening to music and dancing. We enjoyed the music and entertainment in the lobby and bar area. Some nights we wish it could have lasted a little longer, but it's understandable with rooms directly above. We had an AWESOME time! We can't wait to return! Thank you so much for sharing paradise with us!

Great resort beautiful grounds and suites. We enjoyed breakfast every day at spice, the best omelettes! Ate dinner at Asiana and marie marie and pelicanos. Enjoyed Asiana the best with the hibachi grill! Excellent staff were there to assist you in any way possible. Staff members to mention, Mario excellent welcome, all the staff at Spice, and at spa. Only thing to mention was beach service was slow seemed to cater to swimming pool more. Otherwise very enjoyable stay! We will return.

we just returned from the hotel Zilara for our third time. we love hyatt hotels however we were concerned that the hotel zilara (formerly the Royal hotel) may have lost it's intimacy with the hotels guest but they did not! our visit was just as good if not better then ever before. we are world travelers and this is by far our favorite hotel, favorite staff and restaurants which are exceptional being an all inclusive adult resort. I hope the Hyatt Brand appreciates the GEM it has in the hotel Zilara. Marcelo and his staff have been and continue to be most excellent in their service to their guests. we'll be back!

Room Tip: love the premium swim up suites -- it's worth the extra money

This place was taken over by Hyatt a year or more ago. By the looks from the outside driving up, it's not the most beautiful resort on the strip but once you are in, you're hooked. It's very, very nice. The staff are wonderful, a very open feeling inside but since it's an open air type of lobby...it's HOT! The rooms are really nice! I saw three different rooms of our friends who were there. Amazing views. The wedding couple had an amazing room with a dining table, kitchen, bedroom and a huge corner balcony. Our room, was just as nice but not as big and no extra room, table or huge balcony. I was impressed and it takes a lot to impress me (for the cost that is). The food was so good at the buffet or at the fancy Mexican restaurant. All good! Drinks were not bad and service was pretty good. Took a while for beach drink service but we were not in any rush. I would definitely go there again.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor in front of Pellicanos pool bar. It got a little loud at times but we weren...
