The Hyatt all-inclusive properties have become one of my favorite ways to redeem my World of Hyatt points. They include the family-friendly Hyatt Ziva’s in Montego Bay, Cancun, Los Cabos, and Puerto Vallarta, as well as the adults only Hyatt Zilara’s in Montego Bay and Cancun. I personally have only stayed at the Hyatt Ziva Cancun and absolutely loved my stay. My family has actually visited twice! It provides all-inclusive experience done well experience. They offer awesome rooms, a great kids club, nice pools and many really good restaurant options.
Fortunately, Hyatt is expanding their all-inclusive properties and come Nov 1 we will see two new properties in the Dominican Republic. This includes the family friendly Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana and the Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana. While this property has been open for reservations for a month or so, if you were looking to redeem your Hyatt points, those reservations were not available. Until now! Since all of the other Hyatt all-inclusive properties cost either 20,000 or 25,000 points for a free night, I assumed the same would hold for these two properties.
As expected, both properties have been placed as a category 6 and will cost 25,000 points a night. This is for two guests occupying the room. Any extra guest will cost an additional 12,500 points a night. (Kids 2 and under are free). If you are looking to stay at this property right when it opens, rates are currently around $450 a night for 2 adults.
About the Hyatt Ziva and Zilara Cap Cana
The two properties are right next to each other right on Juanillo Beach—about 15 minutes away from the Punta Cana International (PUJ) airport. Between the two properties you’ll find 12 restaurants and bars, swim-up bars in the pool, a water park with a lazy river, tennis courts, daily games and fitness activities, and nightly live entertainment. Since this property was built from the ground up, I expect the rooms and the facilities to be top notch.
One of the best aspects of both properties is that the lowest level room is a 614 square foot junior suite bedroom. This is great for families who need some space to stretch out. You can even book a standard room with two queen beds and a queen pull out sofa. Of course there are larger rooms, including two-bedroom and swim-up suites. If you have Globalist status and are looking to use a suite upgrade, it looks like that might put you in a 1,200+ square foot room! The best part about the rooms is that minibar items are replenished daily and there is no extra fee. You can also always order room service 24 hours a day and that is also part of the all-inclusive experience.
I am extremely excited about this property now open for reservations. This hotel is definitely on my radar since I am truly loving Hyatt’s all-inclusive experience with my family. One thing to keep in mind is that many large resorts in the Caribbean end up being delayed. Hyatt has always opened up reservations for upcoming properties far in advance and there have been many situations that the date gets pushed back. Take the Park Hyatt St. Kitts and Grand Hyatt Baha Mar as examples. So if you are banking on this property for November or December, you might want to have another alternative in your back pocket just in case.
