Our first trip to Puerto Vallarta Dec 21-Jan 4, 2015. Yes, we had some minor issues at this “soft opening” with reno’s going on. BUT the staff here is top notch, caring, aim to please and go out of their way to be sure that you are happy. From our beach butlers Artula, Alfonso and Christian who made sure we... More

Recently stayed at HZ in Puerto Vallarta the hotel was putting the finishing touches on some major renovations apparently after purchasing from Dreams. The hotel is about a 20 -30 minute cab ride from airport. The property is very nice the beach is protected by high cliffs on either end which ensures only hotel approved vendors on beach property. Hotel... More

My wife and I were impressed from the moment we walked in. The always friendly staff greeted us with champagne and warm towels upon arrival. We stayed in a newly remodeled King View room and it was beautiful. The view from our room was spectacular! Laying out next to one of the pools or onthe resorts private beach was very... More

We went with a group of about 90 people. For us this hotel was very nice and we loved the beach. Very safe area and nice people. Yes they are finishing a few things but you know this before going so why people complain about it shows their lack of understanding. Our room was nice, bathrooms are nice and we... More

My family and I stayed at the Hyatt Ziva mid-January and it was our first foray into all-inclusive resort travel. If you are looking for complete pampering, this is the place. The location is stunning, the food delicious and the staff lovely and helpful. It was the perfect relaxation kick-off to our Mexican vacation. The resort wasn't quite finished when... More

If you are looking for a hotel with every room facing the private beach, look no further. The Hyatt Ziva sits on its own private beach only 7 minutes south of old Puerto Vallarta. This means no arm bands. The pools are also on the beach, all of them infinity. If you stay in the club section, the south building,... More

My husband and I had visited this hotel four times when it was Dreams Resort. Dreams had the old Mexico feel and was not as updated as Hyatt has made it. I booked this trip after having spoke to a Hyatt resort specialist that assured me that all the construction and remodeling had been completed. When we arrived ( Jan.... More

If you are coming here in the next six months you will be joined by very affable, friendly and wonderful incentive travelers who have won a trip to paradise, and for them it is. For those of us who expected a Hyatt experience, move on immediately, once again Hyatt has gone into an area they don't know about and you... More

Let me say that this place has the most beautiful private beach that i have seen so far in Puerto. . We had excellent service from Ezequiel from Blaze, Arturo, Ivan, Alejandro and Erica and of course Casanova , the waiters work very hard and tips go a long way for them. I seen Arturo walking up and down that... More
