Stayed at the hotel for a weekend get away from LA. Rooms we're large and comfy and the property was lovely. I found the staff to be helpful and friendly. If you're booking, suggest going to the Hyatt website directly and not using Hotels.com or Booking.com as the rates they gave seemed to be consistently higher.
Only complaint about the place was the pool area. It was clean and pretty but not Luxe, I think they could do better there but this is really just a taste thing -- I'm probably being a snob. I really have no issues with the place, and the location near West Beach is perfection. If you stay here, be sure to walk down the Coast Road to the East, then take the first right past the cemetery, walk for a bit you you will find a coast walking trail that leads along the top of the cliffs and passes by some of the most magnificent homes in the world. These estates will blow your mind. Then continue on and have a drink at the stunning Four Seasons Baltimore Hotel and pretend that you're rich enough to stay there. Then stroll back to the Hyatt on the beach.
SB has just created a new cool section of wine tasting rooms and restaurants with the unfortunate name "The Funk Zone" -- now dubbed the drunk zone by locals. Google the location and check it out on a Saturday evening. You will enjoy. And don't forget to stop by La Super Rica, the best taco stand in California. Get a #16 and a #8. You will be very happy.
Enjoy your stay in SB.
