5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We recently returned from a 5 day stay at the Hyatt. Upon check in we were greeted with sparkling wine and a face towel. We had to wait a while to check in since it seemed that they were short on staff and then all of a sudden there were many employees eager to help! Our room was ready right... More

I'm currently at the Hyatt.y husband and I are loving it! The staff, the food, the rooms the cleanliness, the evening entertainment are all top notch. The only thing that I would like to see changed is the lack of music. even quite music around the adult pool would be an improvement and in the evenings there is no music... More

We recently traveled to the Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta for a four night stay. Here is what we found: We arrived in Puerto Vallarta midday and took a cab to the Hyatt Ziva. The price was about $20 USD. It's cheaper if you pay by credit card. If you don't it's an even $20. The ride was about 30 minutes.... More

We were happy but kinda disappointed with our stay this time. We have stayed there 4x before when it was dreams and we loved it, that's why we keep coming back. The Hyatt Ziva just opened in December and it's getting the same potential as Dreams. The service was great and the grounds are most beautiful, we love the beach... More

I had stayed here on a girls' trip several years ago when it was Dreams and my partner and I found a special rate as it was reopening under Hyatt management. We had a wonderful stay. It was not very crowded yet -- we guessed maybe 50% occupancy. This meant service was very personalized and excellent. The food was good... More

Just got back from a wonderful vacation with friends and family. Stayed in the Club Tower where Marina and Daniel, our Concierges, couldn't have been more helpful. From arranging transportation to ordering flowers (I received as a birthday gift from friends). We ate most breakfast & lunches at Viva. Alejandro greeted us everyday with a smile and would make sure... More

We've collectively visited this hotel several times in the last two decades when it was the Dreams hotel and were anxious to see what awaited under the new brand. We stayed as a group of families, some of which had very small children. The Hyatt renovations have greatly improved the hotel, giving it a more contemporary feel. In particular the... More

This was our first time to an all inclusive and did not know what to expect.. What we found at the Hyatt Ziva was great service, friendly people and a real effort by the entire staff to make our stay amazing! The staff, especially Arturo C, the pool waiter, kept us feeling very welcome and helpful. I would recommend this... More
