I just finished writing our reviews of the Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall in Montego Bay, and I’ve been thinking about how nice it was to have all the accommodations, meals, and activities rolled into one all-inclusive price. Of course I really loved that the price was just Hyatt Gold Passport points in our case, but even if it was a good cash price, having the burden of vacation budgeting lifted is not insignificant for most of us.
Today I saw a new promo where you can earn 12,000 bonus Gold Passport points if you book an eligible (paid) five night stay at one of four Hyatt all-inclusive resorts by July 10, 2015 for travel June 10, 2015 – December 15, 2015.
The eligible all-inclusive resorts include:
Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall
Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall
Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta
Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos (for travel once they reopen from August 15 – December 15, 2015)
You must request offer code GP12K at time of reservation and check in to receive bonus points. Hyatt Gold passport members must choose points for their stay and pay and eligible rate, as defined in the Hyatt Gold Passport terms and conditions.
While I stayed on points when we visited the Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall, a look at paid rates on some upcoming dates at all four of those hotels shows nights in the $200’s – $300’s per night. That isn’t cheap of course, but that is based on double occupancy, and at the Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos properties it also included some kids stay free rates!
That means for that price you aren’t just getting a hotel room, you are also potentially getting food and activities potentially for the whole family The points rates at those properties range from 20,000 – 25,000 points per night for two guests, with additional guests (including children 3 and over) adding 10,000 – 12,500 points each per night. That means that when rates are in the $200 – $300s you may do better with cash and earning points than spending them (depending on your cash situation and how you value Hyatt points).
I also want to mention that the Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos is scheduled to re-open on August 15th after being closed for almost a year due to major damage from Hurricane Odile. From what I can tell they took that opportunity to make some real improvements on the property including upgrading the spa and some rooms/suites as show in the photos in this post. They also will have seven pools and a kids water park. I think I also read that the Kid’s Club has been upgraded.

Of course this could also stack with the Hyatt summer promo that awards up to 65,000 bonus points!
