Hyatt All-Inclusives in Jamaica Taking Reservations!

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?

  1. MP, I assume Hyatt did not build but they purchased and refurbed the RC-Rose Hall?
    Also, we did an all-inclusive(Sandals, Negril…ugh) back in the 90’s in Jamaica. I hope that times have changed down there. It was incredibly cheesy and sophomoric back then.

    • Geoff, yes to refurb and I’m interested to see how this all-inclusive experience is as well. I’m not typically drawn to all-inclusive Caribbean spots, but will probably give it a shot at some point.
      Steve, woohoo! Sounds great!

  2. Very interesting. I was just looking into booking ATL or MCO to Montego Bay on SW with my companion pass.
    This could be an incredibly frugal vacation with DW.

  3. I just got off the phone with a Hyatt rep and they told me that the 2 night certificates are not eligible for the Hyatt Rose Hall. She said only points. I don’t know if its just that she’s not knowledgeable.

    • Maury, That would be a new direction and would surprise me. I will try to get more official info from hyatt next week.

  4. Probably will have to call in to use points…I just tried looking at about 6 different dates between Nov 2014 and May of 2015 and I keep getting this message..

    The special offer/rate you have selected is unavailable during the dates you have selected, or it is not offered at this property. Below is a list of rates available during your requested dates. To check alternate dates click here.

  5. Not a big fan of all inclusive at all. It might be a good option for families with kids but I believe it will get boring after couple days. Also, I doubt the quality of food and drinks will be amazing for the entire duration of the trip. Prefer to have the flexibility to explore other local options which won’t probably be the case in Jamaica. 🙂

    • Santastico, I’m not a all inclusive junkie in the traditional sense either, but willing to give a hyatt property a shot at some point.

  6. @mommypoints I called a second time and the rep told me that you can use them for that hotel but you can’t book them yet.

    • Maury, I got the same message when I called today to book for November. I’m nervous because I won’t have enough Hyatt points to book with points, and there’s no way we would pay $900 per night to go there without the free night certificates! I’m hoping they release rooms for award booking soon. Does anyone have any ideas about when that might happen?

      Also, I’m so glad I ran across this post, because I was on the verge of booking MUCH more expensive flights from Tampa to Cancun, via Atlanta, to go to the Hyatt Zilara resort there. Orlando to Montego Bay is costing about half as much using Southwest Rapid Rewards.

  7. At 60k points, I think the Hilton Rose Hall is the better deal. We stayed there over spring break and LOVED the resort. The kids club is included and has some great activities for kids including a glass-bottom boat tour where my kids saw nurse sharks. With the relative ease of collecting Hhonors points, my scale is tipping strongly to this side for a Jamaican a/i.
