“A piece of paradise”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

This is our second time coming here to the Hyatt in Dorado. Hopefully it won't be our last. This time we went through Dorado Tours to get our rental car. The main telephone number to the hotel will connect you to Dorado Tours. If you rent a car through them they will have someone pick you up at the airport and deliver you right to the hotel where your rental vehicle will be waiting. This lets you get a smaller car to drive around as you will not have to be transporting your luggage. Small cars in Puerto Rico is a good thing. Then at the end of your stay the driver will take you back to the airport. This is nice also if arriving at night or during rush hours because the drivers can get around better since they know the roads. Ours got us around construction work. Now for the Hyatt...we got a two bedroom, which for families is nice because you can all be together but still separate. Two bathrooms is nice . Having a kitchen saves us money on eating. The kitchen has enough cooking utensils and dishes to cook all your meals. Nice with smaller children to be able to eat in the room after a day at the beach. Little ones get tired and cranky when they have to wait at restraints just to sit then wait for food. Here you cook and can get them in bed. And still have time to relax and enjoy the evening. Your right on the beach, so just walking a little ways to enjoy the ocean, and if something is left in the room it's not a big deal to walk back up. Some places it's across the street or a short car ride away. The beach is uncrowded, and their is plenty of beach chairs around the pool and on the beach. The pool is big and clean and their is two hot tubs . We played ping ping, basketball, and mini golf. Rooms are spacious . Clean. Everyone at the resort is friendly, courteous, kind and makes your vacation very enjoyable. It might not have the most up to date decorations, and linens, but who really cares if the price is right, and your right on the beach? Everyone has an ocean view, some are better then others.

Room Tip: Anything above 5 or 6 floor will get you the best ocean views.

We stayed at The Hyatt Hacienda Del Mar in July 2013. I am a Hyatt Diamond member & decided to use some points for my birthday trip to Puerto Rico. My boyfriend & I stayed at the resort for 4 days. We had a very large 1 bedroom villa with a great ocean view .( you must be on the 7th or 8th floor to see the ocean). The resort is rather small & "boutique like", but I like to vacation at the smaller resorts vs. the mega- over crowded resorts. There is not much to do at the resort except swim in either the pool or ocean or relax by the pool or on the beach. But we came to relax so it was perfect for us. Or room was very nice, clean, large open living & dining room and fully equipped kitchen. Quaint patio with access from the bedroom & living room. We had a Jacuzzi tub in the bedroom which was a nice plus. There were a lot of locals that stay at the resort during the weekend...most were not very friendly. Overall we enjoyed our stay. It would be a great place to come with a group of friends and make your own entertainment. The swimming pools are open 24/7 which was great for us as well!

Room Tip: If you want a view of the ocean, you must be on the 6th floor & up! There are many American Fas...

I have access to a time share and decided to go on a fairly last minute beach vacation with a friend. The rooms and hotel were clean, nice beach,and convenient beach hut bar. I was satisfied with the hotel since it was a last minute booking, however, it did not exceed any expectations. At one point I was having a friendly conversation with an employee and they mentioned something along the lines of "you know because finances aren't so great with the hotel". This wasn't a complete surprised but it did make it obvious that there are probably some deeper issue going on with the future of this location. Over all, if you are looking for a quiet, simple beach vacation this is fine but I wouldn't consider it luxurious.

We have stayed at the Hyatt Hacienda Del Mar twice, with the most recent being August 2013. We love this place. The uncrowded beach and adjacent pool area is a big highlight for our family. The grounds are well kept and the staff is beyond compare. We cooked most of our meals in the room but also enjoyed driving into Dorado for dinner. We golfed at the Dorado Beach Resort courses just a 3 minute drive from the Hyatt.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on an upper floor for the best views of the ocean.

The beach is beautiful and a good walk from end to end. Swam every day. Liked the pool with lots of shaded areas under palm trees. Good drinks at beach bar. Nice and friendly staff. Need a car as San Juan or outlets or food are all a drive.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the upper levels to get a view of mountains and sunsets and tree tops.

For the price it's hard to get anything better. For starters, the parking is included. The property is a little bit dated but the rooms, the lobby and the building in general was very clean and well maintained. The best part of our stay was the service. Everyone I talked to in the front desk were very helpful and friendly. Loved the room. Very spacious, clean and had all the amenities needed. The resort has a big pool and it could've been cleaner. On the other hand the surroundings were very clean. The resort has a bar/restaurant near the pool that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner but closes at 9 pm. Didn't have the need to eat there because of the kitchen in the room. For certain I'll be back.

This is your typical time share resort off the beaten path. It offers golfing nearby and is anchored by a small community of homes. Outdoor name-brand discount outlet is only minutes away. It has many amenities of a home including a microwave oven, standard size refrigerator, and sleeps up to eight people with their pull out sofa bed.

The beach is small and can at times be very rough surf. All in all, if traveling with a family to this island in the "Caribe" and wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of urban flair of San Juan, this destination is a sure bet for some fun and relaxation for the family.
