As we already knew, Hyatt has been working on two all-inclusives options in Jamaica to join the all-inclusive Hyatt Zilara Cancun and Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos that both joined the Hyatt family in 2013. The Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall (families) and the Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall (couples and adults) in Montego Bay, Jamaica are accepting reservations for November 1, 2014 and beyond! This is great news for those who want to use their points (or cash) and then not have to worry about food, drinks, activities, etc since the cost is included!
Just like at the other two Hyatt all-inclusives you can use Hyatt points or cash (or Hyatt credit card sign-up bonus free nights) to make your reservations. You cannot make cash + points reservations at the all-inclusive properties. Unlike at the regular Hyatt properties, it costs more points (or cash) the more people you have in the room – and that sadly includes kids 3 and over.
Both the Jamaica properties are 25,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points per night for up to double occupancy. Each kid you add to the family friendly Ziva property that is three years old or over adds 10,000 points to the nightly bill. I will say that Hyatt told me you could use the free nights that come with the Hyatt credit card sign-up for up to four people in the room for the Los Cabos property, so I would assume that is the same for the Ziva Rose Hall, though I haven’t asked specifically.
The Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall has a 50% off promo going on for some of the weeks after it’s opening. I checked a random date in December and it was $432+ per night for two adults and one child with that promo. The Hyatt Zilara was around $800 a night for the December night I checked – yowzers!
You can check out a review of the all-inclusive Hyatt Zilara Cancun here. I plan to post more about these two Jamaica resorts once I am able to dig up a big more about them, but until then just know you can start making bookings for dates starting November 1. I was not able to make a points reservation online, but they were able to pull up the points rates over the phone when I called…though holy moley that is a lot of points for a family of three or four!
Even still, I may have to try the resort out since it isn’t that far of a flight from Houston! Have you been to a Hyatt all-inclusive resort yet? Are either of these on your radar?
