Where is Hyatt Ziva Cancun located?

Hyatt Ziva Cancun is just 25 minutes away from Cancun International Airport, next to all the city’s entertainment, nightclubs, bars, and shopping centers, right where all action takes place!

The resort stands on the edge of the Cancun Hotel Zone strip and is the only resort in the region surrounded on three sides by the sparkling Caribbean Sea.

Our experience with Hyatt Ziva Cancun

We are in love with this property! It offers modern facilities, numerous culinary experiences, its focus is on wellness and wellbeing activities and its prime location is just WOW.

It has a vibrant, modern, and fresh ambiance. Food was completely delicious and the service is on point. You can see all guests smiling, laughing, and having a good time, and with that beach, I wouldn’t complain either!

Pros and cons of Hyatt Ziva Cancun

PROS

  • Coco Bongo famous nightclub, top restaurants, shopping centers, and all there is to do and see in Cancun is literally steps away from the resort.
  • You have almost 360 views of the ocean from most parts of the resort, and that specific area is very lucky to receive minimum seaweed during the whole year.
  • With its own beer microbrewery serving house-made beer, and a dessert parlor, culinary experiences are surely unique.

CONS

  • If you have your own car, it can get very busy to leave or enter the area due to heavy traffic.
  • This could be a pro or a con, depending on the point of view. There is a dolphin thank on site where you could purchase different experiences. Some people may be a little upset or delighted by this. Hey, no judgment!
  • Due to the layout of the resort, all the action happens right in the center of the buildings, so it may be a little difficult during the day to have a very quiet moment for your daily meditation.

Hyatt Ziva Cancun and COVID

The resort is taking many precautionary measures and has implemented new and strengthened hygiene protocols all around the resort to ensure guests and staff safety.

These protocols include limited seating capacity for restaurants, some areas closed on rotation or unavailable to air and disinfect surfaces, special Spa services, and social distance in open areas.

On top of these measurements, all members of staff must wear face masks, and guests are encouraged to wear them in closed areas and when moving around the resort.

Rooms and Sections

Rooms are modern, bright, and have a very Caribbean beachy vibe. All rooms have a private balcony where you can take in amazing views of the gardens, the sea, or the property grounds. A well-stocked minibar is also included in the room.

Bathrooms are spacious and stylish, with double vanities, plush bathrobes, and a luxurious rain shower.

The Beach

The beach here is UNREAL! The clearest water and very few waves create a pool-like beach where you can enjoy your days under the sun. It is also ideal for kayaking, snorkeling, or any other water activity that you may think of.

You don’t have to worry about little kids learning to swim, or grandma going deep into the ocean.

Food & Drinks

The Culinary scene here is bountiful! Including a large international buffet, gourmet specialty restaurants, adults-only upscale dining rooms, a cozy coffee shop, 24-hour room service, and a dessert parlor to satisfy all your cravings!

There are cute traveling food carts where you can get a burger, tacos, fresh fruit, or crepes. A quick snack to recharge the energy to keep swimming at the pool.

What makes this resort different from other all-inclusive resorts

Due to its privileged location, the views of the ocean are truly something remarkable. Also, being on the last strip of beach that ends in a cliff, it is very unlikely to see external visitors or guests from other resorts walking around the area, which makes this area super private.

What also stands out, is that virtually everything is included! No pushy up-sales here and there. Spa services and dolphin activities by Delphinus require a surcharge. Aside from that, you can leave your wallet in your room safe and just enjoy your stay.
