“Incredible Vacation”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Hyatt Zilara is so wonderful. Every single staff member treated us so kindly. Our room was so amazing, waking every single morning to the sound of the waves watching the sun rise on our balcony! We enjoyed a really lovely dinner on the beach "Lobster and Jazz" so romantic with the live music and delicious food, again the waiters were very polite. This is only offered once a week so check with the Concierge. Speaking of the beach the sand is so soft and the water is crystal clear and safe for swimming! There are several restaurants all of which we tried except for the Chefs Plate which wasn't intentional we were running late for our reservation and when we got to the restaurant we found out they'd given our seats away. That was very upsetting especially since they never attempted to contact us. Also we weren't advised there was a dress code, gentleman must where long pants. This restaurant books up really quickly so I'd suggest you book at the beginning of your stay. Asiana is Japanese dining we set at the teppanyaki table which is always fun to do! There's a 24hr Lounge where you can play pool, ping pong and a few other activities! Hyatt Zilara is great for couples looking for a romantic getaway as well as a group of adults looking for a great time together as this is an adult only resort!

We stayed for 7 days, me and my wifw, the pool and beach are wonderful.
The place was very clean, our room was also very clean and the maid would organize everything daily.
The food is wonderful with the mexican being our favorite, we especially loved yoga new moon on the beach and water volleyball.

This was our third stay at this location, but the first as a Hyatt property and I will say that it is not quit the place that it was, but they are working very hard to get back to that, under the new management. We had been watching the reviews from when the property sold and had been a little worried that the place that we have narrowed down to what we believe is our best value was not going to be up to the standards that we had quickly become accustom to in the previous two stays. We booked the Hyatt and celebrated our 32nd wedding Anniversary with them and were not disappointed. Some of the staff that we had gotten to know still remain and had remembered us, and the other members are genuinely wanting to make you feel like this place is a home away from home. They are still interested in selling you a Time Share but do not burden you with it. The staff seems to be a little stand offish, but not in a bad way, we had no problem interfacing with them nor did it seem like we were bothering them. We would like to personally thank Migel,Hector and Louis from Spice, Guadaloupe, Solomon, and David you guys really made our stay, our Anniversary very special. Thank You for you kindness and friendship and we hope to see you again soon. In short this is a Great Place To Stay.

Steven and Kelly C.

Room Tip: There is NO bad room here. You are looking right at the Ocean.

My boyfriend and I stayed 4 nights at the Hyatt Zilara and we had an amazing time! The resort is beautiful and everything was very clean and well maintained. The staff was extremely friendly and everyone was all smiles.

Our room was on the second floor. It was much larger than I'd expected and had a great view! The pool area filled up quickly during the day and unless you reserved a cabana/bed/chair early on you were out of luck. We preferred sitting on the beach during the day, where there were always plenty of beds/chairs. Drink service on the beach was always prompt and friendly. We would usually give a good tip in the beginning of the day and the staff was more then happy to keep returning to us for more drink orders. We ate at most of the restaurants (Spice, Pelicanos, Asiana, Maria Marie and Tapas) and all were delicious. The Hibachi portion of Asiana was the only one that required reservations and we had no problem being seated at the others.

Our favorite discovery were the hydrotherapy pools in the back of the resort near the spa. They were in a quiet area and usually always empty-a perfect end to a sunny day on the beach.

I can't say enough positive things about this beautiful resort and would recommend it to anyone traveling to Cancun!

I had the opportunity to spend a week here with my husband last week, and the experience was out of this world. From the moment you got off the car (where they receive you with wet warm towels to clean your hands and a drink) all the way through our departure. The girl at front desk, Jennifer, was very attentive and nice, she asked us if we were celebrating something special, and I said "yeah! a well deserve honeymoon after 2 years of been marriage." When we got to our room, beside the fact that we were speechless because of the view and the room itself, the bed was all cover with rose petals, a Jacuzzi and wine and champagne AND a small wedding cake with chocolate written on plate :Happy Honeymoon!! It was just what we were looking for. Is an ADULT ONLY hotel, which it makes it very relaxing and peaceful. (I love children, don't get me wrong, but if what you looking for is relax and peace, this is the place. Every employee here treat you with respect, you feel like a queen and king. We had the couple massage done, and Josefina and Luz there treat us excellent, and the massage very very relaxing. So for all inclusive hotel, I think this is one of the best, and the best I have been so far. I recommended !00%. All the restaurant are very nice, don't miss the Tepamyaki!! :)

I spent 4 days/3nights at Hyatt Zilara. All in all this is a pretty solid hotel, with minor hiccups. Random fun fact of this hotel is all the rooms face the ocean! I LOVED IT...because I'm a beach lover and spent 90% of my time here on the beach. The beach was clean with plenty of free beach chairs. I was also able to get a beach cabana everyday I was there. Some beach cabanas are reserved, and will have a "reserved" sign on them. I like that, it made it easier to distinguish if you are allowed to use them. The water temperature was like bath water, and sandy bottom.

I read a lot of complaints on the crowded pool. I can not confirm nor deny this, but I will say that every time I walked around the pool to get the beach most of the pool cabanas and pool chairs were already reserved at 8:30 am. When we came up for lunch, there was always people surrounded at the swim up pool bar.

The food was OK for an all inclusive. I ate at the Mexican night buffet, Maria Marie, & Pelicano's. I had decent meals, and also grabbed coffee & snacks at the Coffee Lounge. Quite honestly, the Coffee Lounge was pretty nice! They had wraps, sandwiches, ice cream, pastries, etc. The Bar Lounge was also completed while we were there and was a nice addition too. They had 2 huge tv's, pool, darts, and a ping pong table. I also can't forget about the taco stand they had one day for lunch too...my only complaint is the drinks on the beach were wayyyyy too sugary for me. However, the drinks at the main bar was spot on! :)

The rooms were amazing, as stated above all rooms face the sea, and are equipped with jacuzzi's and a hammock not the balcony. When you check in, you they will ask you what kind of pillow and scent you prefer. I thought that was a nice added touch.

I'd also like to applaud the staff especially the waitstaff at ALL the restaurants for all their hard work! They were ALL courteous, polite and attentive. They are ALL hard workers and it showed! I didn't mind tipping any of them! :) Keep up the good work!

Room Tip: Make sure you tip! The workers deserve it! :)

We stayed for a few days last week here and loved it!! The staff is so accommodating and polite! I can't say enough good things about them. Every room has an amazing view of the ocean and pool. The food is good...especially for an all inclusive. Pelicanos is great for lunch. We had room service for breakfast and it was always fast and delicious. The staff at the pool always works hard to make sure drinks are served quickly! The nighttime entertainment is good and the band by the bar is always a fun time! The only complaint we had was one night the restaurants closed for a "Mexican themed party and buffet." We ended up just ordering room service that night, which was good but we would have preferred to go to one of the restaurants. Overall, this is a great place if you want a beautiful all inclusive vacation with a friendly staff! We can't wait to go back.
