HI 

I am new here and I am planning an Oct 2015 wedding at the Hyatt Ziva Rose and the hotel doesn't eve open till November of this year. Hopefully it gets rave reviews on Tripadvisor. I am so nervous, but I know that the Hyatt has a good reputation.

From past openings, Hyatt Ziva hotels are normally other resorts who are being rebranded and purchased by Hyatt. With a little help from google, I noticed this we the former Ritz Carlton Rose Hall resort- so start by reading the reviews from there and it will give you an idea (minus the amenities) I stayed at the Barcelo Palace Deluxe 3 months before it converted to Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos and then again after conversion and there weren't many changes aside from the name on the door.

Hi! I work in the travel industry and my suggestion would be to not do this. When new hotels open (regardless of if they're former properties with new ownership), they always have some kinks to work out that usually last three months or so. And that's assuming it opens on time (they usually don't unfortunately.)

 

Hyatt overall is an awesome brand, but also keep in mind that it has several levels - for example Grand Hyatts are in a different class than Hyatt Regency - and prices and service levels reflect that. Also, Hyatt is relatively new to the all-inclusive concept. Just fyi.

HI Jeffandrobyn 

I am aware that it does take some time to work out any kinks, my wedding is a full year after the opening. I wasn't aware of the levels of the Hyatt, but thanks, I'm going to look into it now. I do know that the all inclusive part is run (?) by Playa resorts. The other Hyatt's seem to have great reviews.

    I'd be too scared since we rely on reviews for a lot of our purchases and decisions on places! But I am sure it will be gorgeous!

        Hi
        I was also interested in this hotel/location because it is formerly Dreams Cancun and it has a wonderful private gazebo for the ceremony site. I actually almost booked another location thinking it was the same one. But as i keep researching, it saysit's not due to open until late 2015.... not 2014. Do you have any more details about that?
        Ignore me. .. different location. Sorry!
