First of all, let's be realistic, Saipan is not Hawaii and does not have the tourist revenue that Hawaii does. Yes, the hotel could use some updating, but for the options available in Saipan, I think it’s one of your best bets. While it is in need of renovation, the rooms are spacious, clean and all have balconies. I’d suggest the south tower on at least the 4th floor for the best view of the beach. The hotel grounds and garden are very nice and the beach is fantastic. The restaurants on the property are expensive but good.
The beach at the hotel is nice and clean. The water is warm and shallow (knee high a 100 yds from the beach) and my 6-year old son loved it. There are plenty of water activities available and rental kiosks are right there on the beach with reasonable prices. The town of Garapan is only a block from the hotel with plenty of much less expensive dinning options.
We spent 7-days in Saipan and I strongly suggest renting a car and driving around to explore the WWII historic sites and snorkel some of the other beaches. Just hit the Saipan blogs to find the sites to see. The island is small so we typically went exploring in the morning and snorkeling, beach or pool in the afternoon as the day heated up. The best snorkeling we did was on Manageha Island. You can grab the boat to the island from the hotel beach (we had them pull is out there one the inflatable pull behind “banana boat, my son had a blast). On the way back, be sure to ask the boat captain about the sunken Japanese Zero in about 30-feet of water. Our Captain stopped and let me dive down to it and take pictures.
All and all, I think the Hyatt is a great choice for a trip to Saipan. Good location, great beach, clean and nice staff.
