Situated at the tip of the Yucatan peninsula, Hyatt Ziva Cancun (Cancun.ziva.hyatt.com), is the area’s only resort surrounded on three sides by the Caribbean Sea. With its picture-perfect location (it’s one of the area’s most-photographed spots), beautiful beaches and perfect snorkeling spots (the clear turquoise water is ideal to spot the large variety of coral and colorful fish coral), this is a great resort for people who want to do everything…or nothing.
The property has 547 suites. What’s really nice is that there are 15 different room categories, so you really can tailor your vacation. For those looking for a quiet, kids-free vacation, the adults-only tower is a great fit. There are also swim-up rooms with plunge pools and butler service. For the ultimate in luxury, stay in the 4,381-square foot Presidential Suite, encompassing the entire top floor of the resort, boasting not only amazing views but providing every imaginable amenity.
Be sure to bring your appetite because the resort boasts nine different dining options. The Moongate has scrumptious Asian cuisine including dim sum and teppanyaki. Bastilles offers French fare in an upscale setting, while Lorenzo’s is a authentic trattoria-style Italian restaurant. Tradewinds is steakhouse offering top cuts, while Habaneros is a laid-back taco and ceviche beachside spot. There’s also food carts roaming the property offering everything from fresh fruit, made-to-order crepes, burgers and creative drinks.
Part of the appeal of an all-inclusive is having a variety of places to get a margarita at sunset or a Pina Colada at a swim-up bar. Hyatt has seven different watering holes including Sassil, which has indoor and outdoor seating in a Mayan-inspired atmosphere. Tequila lovers can put their taste buds to the test at Juana Margarita where a number of different varieties are offered. For those into microbrews, Tres CerveZa’s sports bar has an on-site brew master. One of the best spots to watch the sunrise is the Punta Vista, the rooftop lounge with 360 degree views. Of course, there’s always a crowd at the swim-up bar.
Whether you’re enjoying one of the dozens of watersport activities, including stand-up paddle board yoga, water basketball and kayaking, or sticking to the land (bike tours and Pilates reformer are quite popular), you’ll be sure to get your fill at this beautiful, relaxing property.
