We, family with 3 kids (2, 5, 9) spent Easter break at the Hyatt Sierra Lodge.
Condo- A+ These are 2 bedroom (one with King bed, the other with 2 full beds), 2 bath condo units with full kitchens with granite, 2 barstools at counter area, dining area with long dining table that seats 6 and a living room area with leather sofa with pullout, 2 nice rattan chairs, a reading bench and gas fireplace. There is also a washer and dryer in the unit and plenty of storage/ closets. When my kids walked thru the door, they were "wowed! 3 T.V.'s mom, we get our own TV in our room!" We were not there to watch TV but they were happy that there were 3. It was a good thing when we got back to the condo that the kids could relax with a show and my DH could watch a baseball game. The only thing I can complain about was the king bed was too soft and was very uneven- high in the middle sloping off at the sides. The Master bath had a jacuzzi tub and the kids loved their bubble baths there! We were in building 6 on the 1st floor and outside our patio, there was a river rock bed and the kids had a great time climbing and exploring on those rocks!
Pools- A+, very child friendly. We swam every day- there is a hot tub and pool at the condo's and you're also able to use the Hyatt Regency pools next door which has 2 hot tubs (1 for adults only), one big pool with a walkout which was great for kids because it was only 4 1/2 feet deep, and a toddler pool which is 1 1/2 feet deep that was freezing cold (they were repairing it when we were there). They played music at the pool area which was nice and there were pool rings and balls that the kids could use. Next to the toddler pool was a sandbox area with small playground- my younger kids loved that area and played for an hour there. My kids enjoyed walks around the property.
Beach views- A+, Sand- C+, very rocky, pebble sand, hurts the feet after awhile. We went to the private beach in front of the Hyatt Cottages and my kids did their egg hunting there. They loved playing baseball on the beach and making sand castles. We'd only stay for an hour at most because it got pretty windy and cold. We huddled by the fire pits in front of the Lone Eagle Grill often to get warm. There are several firepits throughout the property and the ones by the beach are great as you can watch the lake. We brought stuff for smores but winded up doing them in the microwave at the condo since it was too cold outside. There's also some hammocks by the cottages and they were fun to lie on and watch the lake and snow mountain views- just gorgeous!
Dining- A+ We had pizza at MoFo's in Christmas Village- had the hawaiian pizza and it was excellent! Also had an order of fried zucchini- big spears of zucchini- the best we've had! Easter brunch at Sierra Cafe B+, the buffet was pretty good and quite reasonable. We opted for this since Lone Eagle's Easter Brunch was $70 per adult and Seirra Cafe's brunch was $20 per adult. You get the lake view with Lone Eagle but at Sierra Cafe you get a beautiful view of the mountains and pine trees. It's all beautiful and the service was great.
Service- A, everyone from the front desk, wait staff, cleaning staff were all very friendly and helpful.
Weather- B- We were soo glad it didn't rain, it was sunny in the mornings but got chilly in the afternoons. There was even some snow/ ice on the side on the hotel that my kids had fun with. It was nice to come back to the condo to turn on the fireplace at the flip of a switch to get instantly warm!
We will definitely be back in the summer when it's not as chilly and we can hang out on the beach all day long! I truly reccomend this resort for those with young children, and it really has something for everyone! Thanks Hyatt!
