Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta

Posted on 01/11/2017

I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta on the Central West Coast of Mexico. The Hyatt ZIva Puerto Vallarta's location is spectacular. Located at the base of a mountain on a beautiful secluded beach featuring spectacular sunsets daily. The Hyatt Ziva offers two towers, the main tower and the club tower.
The main tower rooms and suites are all oceanfront, with ground floor rooms offering swim out suites, while the main tower rooms offer a variety of room categories from King/Double Oceanfront with French doors, Balcony King/Double offering large oceanfront balconies, in addition to a variety of oceanfront suites.
The Club Tower, is newly renovated with all rooms and suites featuring beautiful oceanfront balconies. The club area also offers a few additional upgraded options included private lounge with drinks and snacks, private resort check in, pillow and aroma therapy menu, and more. The Hyatt Ziva bathrooms featured in all resort rooms are excellent offering oversized shower facilities with refreshing rain showers. Beds are very comfortable, and the views offered from my seventh floor were spectacular. Extensive spa and gym facilities are available, the spa offers an extensive list of treatments at reasonable (More then home) resort rates. The gym is equipped with excellent equipment, and amazing views to enjoy while you sweat. Whether your acardio junky, free weights or machine weights aficionado, the gym will satisfy your need to exercise. Restaurant offerings featuring a variety of dinning options including Asian, Mexican, Seafood, Italian and Steaks. In addition there's a buffet with a very good variety available during breakfast, lunch and dinner. Another nice option is the food cart offerings available in the main pool area. Additional public facilities include, tennis courts, three beautiful pools, oversized hot tubs, non motorized water sports, kids pool and kids club facilities.

Staying in the Puerto Vallarta area November-May offers excellent weather, beautiful sunsets, fantastic people and excellent off resort options. On this visit I went zip lining with Los Veranos Canopy Tour. I can't say enough good things about the quality of this tour. The staff were very helpful, friendly and safety conscious, ensuring everyone had an amazing time. Make sure you bring your swimsuit for a post zip dip. Vallarta Adventures offers a very enjoyable evening with Rhythm of the Night Dinner Show, this show features a scenic boat ride to secluded cove. This excursion includes and excellent buffet, a beautiful location and an exciting Aztec themed show.

If you've never considered the West Coast of Mexico, give Puerto Vallarta a look, excellent weather, good flight options, a variety of resorts for every budget, with several resort areas. Vallarta featuring Hyatt Ziva and Grand Fiesta, Nuevo Vallarta featuring RIU Palace, and Marival resorts, Punta Mita featuring Iberostar, And my all time favorite Four Seasons.
