Our Opinion

The Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta is located south of the downtown strip in Mismaloya. The property is cleverly secluded amongst the side of the cliffs, creating the impression that it is its own private paradise. Perfect for an intimate romantic getaway or a well-balanced and family-oriented vacation, this property possesses all the luxurious inclusions and amenities to make any vacation one-of-a-kind. From the roaming beach and pool carts, to the tequila sommelier, this property offers several unique culinary experiences. This resort is also constantly refining its facilities to offer the absolute best for each guests' stay.

Location: Directly on a secluded beach, surrounded by the Sierra Madre mountains, in beautiful Bahia de Banderas. Only 20 minutes south of downtown Puerto Vallarta and 30 minutes from the airport.

Awesome Family Vacation

We loved our staying at Hyatt Ziva - The staff was amazing, everyone will remember our preferences all the time. All Rooms had stunning ocean view and floor to ceiling windows! Restaurants were very good! we spent our mornings at the beach and afternoons in the pool - The lifeguard ( Alex) was fantastic - entertainers ( Martin- Dulce- Hector) were very nice and caring. The foam pool party was my favorite - the kids had a blast! Couple of things I didn't know: lobsters are not included in the free menu :( and the kids club is for kids 4 yrs old and older.

The staff makes the resort so memorable!

Just came back from the Hyatt Ziva this afternoon and so sad to be back in reality because this resort is a place that is really too good to be true. We came here for a family vacation (first one in 8 years!) and we cannot stop talking about how amazing our experience was. We all agree that yes the food here is amazing, the shows here are entertaining, but the biggest highlight is the staff! It wasn't until our experience at the Hyatt did we recognize the importance of incredibly trained staff. Every single one of them were so courteous, polite, and genuinely placed the guests first. The receptionist who checked us in would ask us how are stay was throughout our visit, the waiters remembered you when you ate at the same place twice. But I wanted to especially recognize the entertainment staff, particularly Martin. Martin was so sweet, fun, and made our trip memorable. He teaches a mean aqua-aerobics class which is very amusing; he encouraged us to dance one night; and he always took the time to talk to our family to see how our experience was so far. And he is hilarious. My sister and I were saying that we probably miss him more than the actual resort. But it's really the staff that make the resort memorable! Other staff members that really impressed us at the Hyatt Ziva-- Jose Luis at Melanzane was so friendly and gave the best service I've ever experienced. He offered to take group photos of us as a family at the table with the food, which was a simple gesture that went a long way (especially since we hadn't taken a group family photo yet until he offered). Ivan at the Tortugas Bar was very friendly and attentive. We reserved a cabana one day and he was very prompt with all our requests. Major props to all the drink servers on the beach and the pool who are constantly asking for your orders and remembering what each person has ordered. Yes, the food, shows were all very good, but I really wanted to take the time highlight the staff. All in all, our family had an amazing 6 days. Time went by so fast. Throughout our trip we were already planning the next time we'd come back to the Hyatt Ziva and this time with our friends! Can't wait until then!

Excellent staff, Average hotel

The service staff were exceptional and the private beach was very well maintained. The food and drinks were disappointing and the rooms were very average. A 5 star hotel for Mexico standards. As a result we will not be returning.

Very average, upgrades are a con.

If you get told you have a free upgrade - don't believe it, we got one and the room was basic, not even a balcony. Also don't bother checking menus online, they are out of date. However if you want to just spend the day in a pool bar right on the beach then this is the place.
