Hyatt Ziva Cancun to Open Nov. 15, 2015

This newly renovated, re-branded resort seems to be mostly off the radar–I’ve heard lots about the newly renovated Riu Playacar and the soon to be open Secrets Akumal, but rarely have I seen articles or advertisements about the new family-friendly Hyatt Ziva Cancun.  This resort used to be the old Dreams Cancun located on the tip of Punta Cancun–a great location since it’s a walkable distance to the popular nightclubs at Plaza Forum yet far enough away from the noise as to be quiet at night.  Here is a brief listing of its features and amenities:

  • 547 guest rooms and suites including swim-up rooms.  Upgraded Club Tower guest suites with additional amenities like butler service, private lounge, and balcony Jacuzzi suites
  • three infinity pools including one adults-only rooftop pool
  • two beach areas
  • one buffet restaurant, four a la cartes (French, Italian, steakhouse, Asian including teppanyaki show tables), an American diner (Chevy’s), a beachside taco and ceviche restaurant, a café for pastries and coffees, and a dessert parlor (Pasteles), and a 24-hr. lounge for snacks.  There is also an option to have a private chef prepare a meal and have it served in-suite (for an extra cost)
  • six bars including a brew pub sports bar, open-air bar, tequileria, rooftop bar for adults-only, swim-up bar, poolside bar, while liquor is available in the 24-hr. lounge
  • spa and fitness center
  • KidZ Club for ages 4-12 plus a children’s water play area
  • complimentary WiFi
  • activities:  rooftop tennis court (lit at night), basketball court, complimentary bicycle rentals, volleyball
  • Delphinus Experience:  Dreams Cancun also had a separate pool for swimming with the dolphins; looks like the new Hyatt is continuing this experience.

I did check out the grand opening rates on the website and they made my recent stay at Finest Playa Mujeres seem like a bargain.  Hopefully someone will find some cheaper rates out there and post a link so we all can vacation there instead of just dream about it!
