My husband booked this resort for my Mom and I this past April to celebrate my college graduation and 40th birthday. We were not disappointed...greeted with champange and an early check in and when staff asked if we were celebrating something they assigned us to a room with a beautiful view (Room 2402). My husband did pay for a partial ocenview room but this room was the first room off the side of the ocaen front so really our view was a front view but we did have a smaller balcony which worked for the two of us.
During our 5 day stay, we enjoyed spa treatmentts, dining, and the sunset sail through the Hyatt. All were wonderful and the staff were VERY friendly. We enjoyed lunch upon arrival at Shor's, enjoyed drink at the Blue Mojitio, and ate lunch by the pool on our last day there. We also enjoyed the sun deck and beach area.
I know many have commented on the small beach area at the Hyatt...first, let me say if you are looking for a large sandy beach like Mexico, Bahamas, Hawaii, etc. you will not find this anywhere in Key West. There is a nice beach we went to at Fort Zachary Taylor but it doesn't compare to the above. The Hyatt does offer two seating areas that have sand bottoms and a large sun deck. We had to wait a little while the first day to get a spot in the sand but it wasn't bad. We didn't seem to be there during a busy time; however, I did see others saving chairs at the pool in the mornings...not suppose to but no one said anything. So, yes, beach areas are small but very clean and nice. Also, I think it depends on the time of year you visit, as mentioned we visited in April and we had sun at both the beach areas and pool most of the day. The pool was on the cold side and we never did go in but it felt good to cool off your feet and splash some water on you.
As for the cleaniness...I am very picky and the rooms and resort grounds were very clean and nice. Maid service was not an issue and we called for extra towels, water, etc. and staff was always prompt.
As for location...you couldn't ask for anything better! No car needed! Right off Duvall street and there are stores such as a CVS within a short walk. All the big name stores are on the otherside of the island so a taxi would be needed but remember, Key West is 3 miles by 5 miles so it is quick and cost is low. Taxi from airport is 16 dollars...they go by zones because the island is small. When you come out of the airport there are taxi's lined up waiting for you. Also, no need to go to airport 2 hours ahead of time...1 hour max is needed. The airport is so small and only a certain number of flights come in and out daily so you may only be sharing the terminal with one other flight.
We had no issues with the resort and couldn't have asked for better service...they really do treat you well and go the extra mile to accommadate your needs. The Bell Hop even checked us in for our return flight and printed our boarding passes before he called a taxi and sent us on our way!
Thanks Hyatt for great service and helping make my two milestone celebrations so special! My husband and I plan to stay at the Hyatt during Christmas 2014 (we would have came this year for Christmas but we already have Hawaii booked...that is how much I enjoyed the Hyatt).
