Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall

Hello,

I will be staying at the Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall in November and would appreciate your feedback regarding the following:

- how far is this resort from Montego Bay - (e.g."hip strip")

- Is there any nightlife either on the resort or nearby?

- would you recommend booking tours/excursions via the concierge or online?

- Is it easy to catch a taxi cab? If so, how much?

- where is the best place to exchange money - resort or airport?

Thank You!

"- how far is this resort from Montego Bay - (e.g."hip strip")"

It is about 7 miles, one way, to the start of the 'hip strip'. It is a little over a mile further to downtown Montego Bay.

"- Is there any nightlife either on the resort or nearby?"

Unless you like golf there is almost nothing within walking distance of the Hyatt. You will need to take a taxi to almost anywhere.

"- would you recommend booking tours/excursions via the concierge or online?"

Both will work fine. Click on "THE LIST, Private Drivers and Taxis " at the upper right on this screen for some recommended people for tours. You can also find about 20 tour companies with desks at the airport, just as you exit from customs, that you can book a tour from.

"- Is it easy to catch a taxi cab? If so, how much?"

Yes. Rates are not fixed and there is no meter in any taxi. The one way fare for 1 to 4 people should be $US30 or less. Bargain with the driver for the best price.

"- where is the best place to exchange money - resort or airport?"

None of the above. Try a cambio or a bank.

As to exchanging money, within the Hyatt, all pricing is in US$. All excursions (either book via the concierge or privately) are listed in US$. All taxis can be paid in US$.

There is an ATM on side and there is also a bank about 0.25 miles from the Hyatt duplex (NCB) in the Half Moon Shopping Village. The US$ to JA$ is rapidly approaching 120 to 1. Might exceed that by November.
