An oceanfront resort located on a privileged stretch of white sand, facing the turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean and surrounded by the energy and excitement of La Quinta Avenida - Fifth Avenue - , Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen brings guests to an intimate introduction of the Bohemian vibe of Playa del Carmen, or simply Playa, as it is locally known. With its spectacular architecture, unique outdoor dining concepts and our signature food and beverage author recipes, mixed with local flavors and fresh ingredients of the region for a memorable gastronomic experience. Located inside we find the Paseo, a large open air corridor that connects the entrance of the hotel all the way down to its iconic infinity pools, ending with its breathtaking white sanded beach and majestic turquoise waters for our guests to relax. Our two restaurants and bar are our own extension of the vibrant offerings of La Quinta Avenida.

Reviews summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI

The Grand Hyatt Playa Del Carmen Resort garners accolades for its impeccable cleanliness and a host of amenities, including a pristine beach, multiple pools, and a sumptuous spa. Guests revel in the resort's prime location, mere steps from both the beach and the bustling 5th Avenue. However, some travelers cite the lively atmosphere as a double-edged sword, with music from nearby clubs occasionally disturbing the peace. While the service is often lauded for its attentiveness, the value proposition is criticized due to high costs for food and services, alongside reports of hidden charges.

We spent eight nights at this wonderful resort right on the beach. It’s a very modern design and spectacular in every way. There are multiple beautiful pools on the beach. Our room was oceanfront on the 5th floor with great vistas of the sea and Cozumel in the distance. It had a huge bathtub and rain shower. We spent a day at the spa and enjoyed the lap pool and dip pools. The Club was a great place for breakfast in the morning and complimentary drinks in the evening. Andrea, the Club concierge, was extremely helpful in every way including how to fill out the confusing exit documents which weren’t even collected at immigration. The service in the Club was exceptional and Maria was always so attentive. The hotel is very spread out so there’s lots of walking and the independent beach club next door is very loud at times from 11am to 7pm. The walk to 5th Avenue and all the restaurants and activity is only a block away. Lots of great seafood and margaritas! We really loved this resort and the wonderful friendly staff.

The Grand Hyatt in Playa del Carmen really is grand if you enjoy a bright, contemporary facility. It is only about 3-4 years old, one of the newest properties around, and very well designed and laid out.

There is an abundance of open spaces and areas to relax in and the pool area is exceptional. There are several pools strung out along the entire length of the beach. The beach itself is nice sand. There are plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas around the pool and on the beach. Fancier cabanas are also available for a charge.

The rooms are very modern with tile floors and thick glass dividers for the different areas. Rooms are well lit. Beds very comfortable. In room safe and small refrigerator. Most balconies come with a large cushioned lounger and 2 chairs.

There is a coffee shop, an ice cream shop and two restaurants on site. The Grill at 126 is excellent. We ate 3 dinners there and every one was great. A super menu and super food prepartion.

The location is only one block off 5th Avenue which is the main area for shops and restaurants. Walking distance to everything including the ferry which takes you to Cozumel for about $20 round trip.

Finally, the staff at the hotel were exceptional. Very friendly, knowledgeable and accomodating.

Prior to this we had only visited Playa del Carmen for a day while on cruises. It was so enjoyable that we will be returning frequently and would not think of staying anywhere but the Grand Hyatt.

I stayed with my parents for two weeks in December, we spent Christmas there, and the experience was awesome. The hotel is very comfortable, clean, modern, very well located and the staff is great, the service is really good. People from “La Cocina” were very, very nice (Guadalupe, Jorge, Teresita, Isabel, Carlos, Jairo, Cesar and Julio... also Julio from the security team from the pool area and Jesus the lifeguard) they all treated us very well during our 2-week stay. The food was delicious (café de olla, tamales, cochinita pibil and chilaquiles are a must during breakfasts). The beach is fantastic, that area has a barrier to prevent the seaweed to reach the beach and the staff is constantly cleaning the little seaweed they get. The hotel also has a very modern gym, which I liked a lot. We loved it and would totally come back. I recommend the hotel 100%.

When we arrived in the hotel the check in person was unpleasant. We felt we were not welcome.
We were put in a room next to other where people were smoking weed constantly. We asked the reception to be changed to another room but during 4 days they were unable to change despite many rooms were available online in the hotel website. So they put our health in risk to avoid cleaning one room.
The carts for the lady cleaners make huge noise in the corridors so be ready to wake up very early in the morning.
Wifi doesn’t exist in many parts of hotel and even in the room is constantly breaking. If it rains a lot the hotel may get energy cut off cutting any wifi communications you are having. In breakfast area you need to wait a lot of time for drinks.
Bring your shampoo and gel because the quantities they give for all your stay are ridiculous. After they clean your room please verify if they didn’t forget to leave towels. Do not disturb sign doesn’t work because they enter in the room at any time. They warn you this is a normal practice of the hotel. Even if you want to rest in the afternoon and you put the do not disturb sign they enter in the room.
Beach was super dirty with algaes and we could not use the beach.
If you want to spend money as a 5 star hotel but receive treatment as a 2 Star hotel this is perfect.

My daughter invited me along with ten (10) of her friends to celebrate her 30th birthday.
Since she included me I decided to throw in a couple of surprises so I contacted the resort and was connected with Claudia Salas. Together, Claudia and I planned a surprise welcome reception, tequila tasting, aside from this she managed an off site decorator I hired to decorate our room and she put me in contact with a the preferred travel phtogragher of the hotel. Claudia even made sure the personalized tote bags, towels and cups got trough customs and were delivered just in time for our arrival. Oh! and Claudia made reservations for us at Porfirios restaurant on 5th Avenue, great ambiance, food and drinks and they surprised us with a cake for dessert. Claudia and her team went above and beyond to make sure our events and stay at the resort was something all would remember.

The resort is breathtaking....pictures really don't do it justice. Our room was beautiful and it included a private pool.

The location of the resort is perfect! You can walk to 5th Avenue where all the restaurants, night life and shopping are.

We couldn't have made a better choice!

By far the worst vacation hotel experience. Some highlights:
1. Hotel is drug friendly. Guest openly and avidly smoked marijuana by the adult pool. My wife and daughter complained to staff and they did nothing other than stare and whisper in their walkie talkies. I'm not judging people's personal choices but, had I known this hotel was drug friendly, I would have chosen a different resort for my wife and two children.
2. We arrived early and they didn't check us in. We had to wait 9-10 hours in the lobby after a red eye. We had to wait 1.5-2 hours after the alleged check in time of 3pm. The worse part was that the staff could not have cared less. While they weren't trying to actively do bad things, they clearly didn't care in general.
3. Food at pool and beach is really bad, and I had low expectations.
4. Service, while bad throughout, was especially pathetic at the pool and beach area. The staff would not bring towels despite repeated entreaties on multiple occasions, forcing us to walk back to our rooms wet and cold.
5. Check out experience was poor too. They didn't email me the final bill as I asked for and they promised. They also didn't enter my Hyatt rewards number despite me requesting this 4 times.

I would not stay here again and cannot recommend it to anyone. Hyatt should have way better quality control and operating procedures, especially for an elite traveler and someone who just spent $15k USD on his stay.

I stayed at the Grand Hyatt for the first time this year. I had an amazing vacation made even better by the attentive and extremely friendly staff. From the hotel manager to the Barr staff everyone made me feel at home during my stay. The hygienist's protocols and standards were impeccable and I felt totally safe.

This hotel is in a great location just a one minute walk from the Main Street and overlooking a beautiful beach. The food was exquisite, especially the sushi bar.

I highly recommend this hotel and can't wait to go back.

If overpaying to use a pool is what you like for a vacation, this place is for you because all they have to offer is a pool. There is no usable beach and the water is rough, dangerous because of its proximity to the pool area and completely covered with smelly sargassum. The smell is like raw sewage and no matter where you go on the property, the odor permeates the air. My young daughter and to enjoy the pool but the wait staff was rude, completely inattentive and total jerks. I told them I wanted to pay with a card because we didn't have a room and it was no problem when I ordered an overpriced, flavorless salad. We wanted to order ice cream and that is when Geovani told us it was a problem...well, they should have told us that in the first place and we would have beennhappy to leave and get better food and service next door. Personally, I think they should be grateful people are even at the hotel with the the way the beaches in PDC look right now! There is no beach at this property and the seaweed stretches for miles, covering the water and making the smell intolerable. After I paid, - $37 USD for a salad and some chicken fingers with fries that spilled off the plate AND tipped the idiot waiter $10, we walked toward what we thought was the lobby to escape the rain. That was the last straw for me because Lauro, the "Lifeguard" followed us like criminals and told us we had to go thr other way. No problem, we just wanted the rain to pass...he insisted we leave immediately and was so rude for no reason.. we didn't care about leaving and definitely had no desire to stay or spend more money there. I would much rather spend money at a welcoming location than some substandard, overpriced Hyatt with a crappy "beach" that smells like sewage everywhere. I would never return to this hotel and my friends are now canceling their wedding because of the unnecessarily rude behavior of these morons.

This is my first time to Playa Del Carmen, so I can't really compare the Grand Hyatt to any other hotel or establishment in the town, but I was incredibly happy with our stay. It was only half filled but I thought that made our stay more enjoyable. There was no rush to the pool to reserve prime pool chair real estate. It didn't take forever for drink or food assistance and every precaution was made to make the guests feel safe and protected.
We stayed for eight days and enjoyed the included breakfast which consisted of a simple "buffet" breakfast but as a guest you didn't touch anything. The minute you walk into one of only two places open for dining during our stay, you had your temperature checked, hand and feet sanitizer available and masks required until you are seated. The buffet had lots of fruit, eggs, meat, and other basic choices to enjoy. We liked everything we tried. There is also a menu to order from but we had the breakfast plan included with our stay.
The beds were comfortable, the air conditioning worked great, and all the employees were very friendly and helpful.
For the most part we ate every other meal out in town. There were a lot of choices and places open! I was pleasantly surprised by the food options available. And everything we ate was really good! Obviously a lot of Mexican food but we also enjoyed some Italian, sushi and french fusion. The point is it's safe to visit and we had an awesome time!

The resort itself is very nice and luxurious, and the location is fantastic right in the heart of Playa Del Carmen, so you don't feel isolated like you might at some all inclusive in Riviera Maya. The service was phenomenal. Special call out #1 to Francisco at the check-in counter. He hooked me up with an upgrade to a partial ocean view room (which has a great view btw) and dealt with my special requests effortlessly. Special call out #2 to bell boy Jese, who I started a conversation with on the elevator and ended up writing down a whole bunch of tips for me on my phone for my visit to Mexico City in December since he's from there (and as a good Hyatt employee, he made sure to mention that they have a hotel there lol).

The food here is overpriced, so consider giving that a pass although the convenience of getting served poolside will be worth the cost to some. The ATM is a complete ripoff, so avoid it at all costs and instead head to the Scotia Bank at 10th avenue and Constituyentes, who will charge you US$5 which isn't so awful.

IMO the price for the upgrade to Club access is way too high. I'd recommend passing on that.

Finally, for Americans, if you stay at least 3 days, they'll hook you up with a free antigen covid test for your trip back to the States. Just ask for an appointment when you check in.

I would not stay at this hotel, please read my review we were just there in october. The beach was one of the worst I have ever seen and not conducive for a walk especially alone. It is close to walk to restaurants on the tourist street and we felt fine as long as we were in a group again dont go alone, the sonora grill was our favorite restaurant to eat at while in the area. The restaurants on the hotel property are terrible and I dont recommend.
