The Hyatt needs a major renovation. The rooms are musty and outdated, but who's coming to Puerto Rico to hang out in a hotel room? Fortunately, the beach makes up for it. Beautiful, sandy beach - great for swimming. The pool area was nice but we didn't swim in the pool with the beautiful ocean right there. Not sure what the beach bar/restaurant was like - we made food in our kitchenette or ate out in Dorado.
The adjacent eyesore (old Cerro Mar hotel) is a little creepy. It's a pity they haven't done anything with the property, as it was a beautiful hotel in its heyday.
The staff were very friendly and attentive. My mom accidentally left her swimsuit at the hotel and the staff called us the next day to say they had found it and would mail it to her. They also had great restaurant recommendations.
All in all, we were glad we only spent two days here before moving on to another part of the island. The beach was nice, but expect bare bones accommodations. Not sure where our $20 per day resort fee (on top of room rate) was going - not much of a "resort."
