We were recently married at the Hyatt Zilara and spent a week there with 35 close friends and family. Food, drinks, entertainment and location are all the best I have experienced most recently in my travels to the Caribbean.

Elizabeth Sotelo - Wedding Coordinator was excellent and I mean Excellent! She worked with us for a year to ensure that every detail was attended to and did a fantastic job with every aspect. Simply the best.

Beautiful location, beach and architecture.

I would strongly encourage making restaurant reservations in advance of your arrival as they do tend to fill up quickly. But you can walk in any of them if you don't mind waiting.

Beach is beautiful but as in most of Cancun the water is somewhat rough. A number of our guests lost their sunglasses when hit by a wave! But still fun to body surf. Just hold on to those glasses.

Some of our group played a round of golf at the Riviera Cancun Golf Club. We also rented a yacht for a four hour cruise to Isla Mujeres and back one evening.

Convenient location to the clubs, malls etc. as well as restaurants should you choose to venture off the resort for a change of pace. It's not necessary as the food, drinks and service is excellent at all resort restaurants.

In addition to Elizabeth, we received excellent service from all the staff including but not limited to Moises and Guadalupe - pool wait staff. Jerry was great at the front desk as were the valets, butlers and housekeeping staff.

As with most resorts, securing a chair at the pool becomes very strategic and often can cause some disagreement. I wish the Hyatt and others would some how come up with an equitable system so that towels aren't a means of reserving the prime locations and the guests show up hours later. And I do mean hours!

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean. We stayed in the Presidential Suite which was located on the eight floor with spectacular views. I am not sure of the need for upgrades nor do I understand what constitutes an upgrade other than to a swim up room or suite level.

My husband and I just returned from the Zilara where our daughter was married on August 16th! We have such positive feelings about it all because everything was incredibly perfect! We have been planning this destination wedding for over a year, through the name change, and can truly rave about the hotel and our wedding planner, Elizabeth Sotelo. Most of our communication was done through emails, after a trip to check out the location. Elizabeth was very detail oriented and communicated with us regularly. No details were left to chance- everything was clarified so there were no surprises at all. The wedding events (Welcome Cocktail Hour for our guests, golf at a local course, bridesmaids play day, Cocktail Hour with Mariachi Band after the ceremony, Dinner and Dancing on-the-Beach reception, and Morning After Brunch were exceptional. Elizabeth oversaw the Hyatt events and ensured that each detail was carried out as planned. We could not have done it without her excellent services. Thank you, Elizabeth! We truly loved the facility excellent restaurants, beach and pool areas and watching the hatching turtles! Our entire week-long stay could not have been more perfect! We will return!

Room Tip: All rooms are oceanfront!

The rooms are so spacious and clean and they all have an ocean view. The staff so friendly helpful and they all greet you through out the day.The hotel has some great restaurants we dine at a different one every night.There is a spa on sight to unwind whenever u like which is where I met one of the most amazing stuff member,a masseuse named Mariel very professional ,kind and told very good care of me during my two hours at the spa. Unforgettable vacation.

Room Tip: Great atmosphere for couples and adults wanting quiet time.

I have stayed here at least 3 times before its name got changed to the Hyatt. In the previous years everything was up to par,hotel and pool area and food. As i arrived this time as the Hyatt,I did notice a few changes but nothing too major. The hotel itself still was looking good as the previous years but the pool area was really beginning to show its age. In the previous years the pool area was cleaned early every morning and the pool itself looked great.This time i saw it cleaned once in 3 days and not sure the guy finished the whole pool. There is alot of rust and crude around the edges of pool.Some of the tiles around the pool just wasnt up to par for a 5 diamond hotel.I think the pool area needs to be completly redone.Most of waiters and workers were very friendly and always smiling.I think the food is better NOW than it was when it was the Royal. Over all I probably wouldnt return again unless they redone there pool.I visit cancan once or twice a year and I will probably give Secrets the vine cancun a try next time.Its a newer hotel with awesome pools.

Dear Chuckb70,

Thank you very much for allowing us to host you once again at Hyatt Zilara Cancun and for sharing your honest feedback with us.

We are truly sorry to read that you felt the pool area was not as well-kept as during your last visits.
We would like to assure you that the pool is being cleaned daily as accustomed; however we will most certainly make sure this service is re-enforced.

We are however pleased to know that you found the dining offering to have improved and that the service was still excellent.

Once again, thank you for your comments and we hope you will allow us another opportunity to host you in the near future.

Sincerely,

Alfonso Jarquin
General Manager

We recently returned last week from our stay at the Hyatt Zilara Cancun (8/1-8/10) for our honeymoon. All I have to say is WOW. I would first like to thank Escobar for his exceptional guest service. We were to check in at the 'My Time" counter because of the agency we booked with. He was with other guests at the time but was so kind to step away quickly and let us know he'd be with us shortly and offered us a drink. He met with us in a few minutes and made the whole process quick and easy and even made all of our reservations for us for each of the restaurants that required a reservation as well as our spa appointment.
The hotel is exceptionally clean and although the main lobby is open air, it stays fairly cool and has a wonderful selection of sofas and couches. One of the unique features is that every single room faces the water. We were happy to be on the 6th floor to enjoy a view a little higher up. The rooms are also generously spacious along with a HUGE shower, nice jacuzzi overlooking the resort and a balcony with a relaxing hammock.
As far as the food, our expections were beyond exceeded. Fortunately, we got to enjoy every single restaurant once and even tried next door at the Gran Caribe Real (guests can visit that resort; however they cannot visit our resort). We ate at the Sunset Grill and the Italian place there (I believe Il Pescatore). The food there was pretty good but certainly affirmed to us why we paid more money to stay at the HZ. Maria Marie's was our favorite. Chef's Plate was AMAZING however not such a romantic setting as you are eating at one table with a big group. The hibachi at Asiani was good but certainly not as good as the hibachi back home (small and probably the only let down of our stay). We didn't have dinner at Pelicano's until the last night sadly because it was wonderful and would've like to gone there again. We ordered room service twice (once for lunch and another for breakfast). It was wonderful and a MUST if you stay here- its included.
The beach was beautiful and waiters are always around coming up to you to see if you'd like anything. They are fast and friendly. The pool was great as well as the swim up bar, only wish we had spent more time there (took a few trips and wasted a day with the "Real Club" presentation- which by the way do NOT sit through or sign up for- its a rip off and a waste of money and time). Also to be noted is that EVERY single staff member here was warm and friendly from the bell boys, to the maids, to waiters and bartenders. They are all wonderful and deserve tips! I'd rather spend a little extra to tip for good service than not feel inclinded to tip for mediocre service. Wish I remembered names :(
All in all, if you unsure as to where to stay in Cancun, you will not regret staying here. Spend the little extra and stay here (also consider the rates you get for other places start at their standard lowest grade rooms which are generally not ocean view).

Room Tip: Ask to stay on the highest floor possible. Don't waste your money for the swim up rooms which don't have great views anyways- noticed that the guests in those rooms barely even use their own private swimming area.
