Hyatt All-Inclusive Hotels with Points and Miles

Everyday Points & Miles is showcasing every all-inclusive of the major American chains – Hilton, Hyatt, IHG and Marriott.

The second part of the series will feature Hyatt all-inclusive hotels redeemable by points and miles. We will cover not only the different properties but also the ways to earn Hyatt points.

Hyatt has a total of eight all-inclusive properties around the world operating under the brands of Zilara and Ziva. They are located in Mexico, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic. Zilara is the adult-only brand, while Ziva is the family-friendly brand.

The World of Hyatt program now allows members to book suites using points. However, for the article, we’ve listed the prices for standard rooms for single or double occupancy. To add additional adults or children, the pricing is here.

The Properties

Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos

San Jose del Cabo, Mexico | Starting at 20,000 points | Accessible via Los Cabos International Airport

Located on the shores of the Sea of Cortes, this Hyatt all-inclusive hotel is adjacent to downtown San Jose del Cabo. The hotel boasts nearly 600 rooms on the property. There are eight restaurants to pick from as well.

While the beach is big, the water is rough and there are very strong currents. The property suggests guests travel three miles to the close-by Palmilla Beach if they want to get into the water. So with that said, if you want to go to the beach to swim in the water, this property probably isn’t the best fit for you.

There are three different pools including an adult-only pool and a swim-up bar at the infinity pool.

Hyatt Ziva Cancun

Cancun, Mexico | Starting at 25,000 points | Accessible via Cancun International Airport

The Hyatt Ziva Cancun is Hyatt’s family-friendly property in Cancun. The resort is located at the northeastern point of the Hotel Zone in Cancun. The north side of the resort is rocky, while the east side is directly on an expansive sandy beach.

There are three infinity pools and a pair of hot tubs on the property. The Ziva also has kayaks and paddleboards available to guests. There are fifteen restaurants and bars on-site to choose from including two pool-side bars. And unlike the Los Cabos location, the ocean here is swimmable.

The Hyatt Ziva also has an adults only section called Turquoize with private areas for accommodations, dining, and activities. It’s a more exclusive, boutique opportunity than the Hyatt Zilara Cancun. Although, based on many reviews, it seems like most who have stayed at both this property and the Zilara still prefer the adults-only Hyatt Zilara Cancun.

Hyatt Zilara Cancun

Cancun, Mexico | Starting at 25,000 points | Accessible via Cancun International Airport

The Hyatt Zilara Cancun is one of the more popular Hyatt all-inclusive hotels. This adults-only property is just down the road from the Hyatt Ziva Cancun and boasts an enormous beachside pool featuring a swim-up bar.

All rooms have oceans views with balconies, some of which include hammocks. The beach has calm water and free canopy covered cabanas spread amongst the chairs.

There are six restaurants and five bars spread throughout the resort including an oceanfront restaurant, Pelicanos, that primarily serves seafood.

Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana & Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana

Cap Cana, Dominican Republic | Starting at 25,000 points | Accessible via Punta Cana International Airport | (Opening in November 2019)

Located on Juanillo Beach, the Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara in Cap Cana have started to take reservations for stays beginning in November 2019. The two properties, which will span 40 oceanfront acres, are adjacent to one another and will share a spa and fitness center.

It’s unclear if Zilara guests will have access to the Ziva side, similar to how the Jamaican properties operate (more on that below!). According to the Hyatt website, the properties will have 12 restaurants and bars to go along with a number of pools bordering the beach.

The properties will boast tennis courts and even a water park complete with a lazy river. A lot of details are still emerging about this property, but another Hyatt all-inclusive hotel in the Caribbean will be a great option.

Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico | Starting at 20,000 points | Accessible via Puerto Vallarta International Airport

This Hyatt Ziva seems to be the smallest of the Hyatt all-inclusive hotels. It has its own private beach to go along with five different pools including an adults-only pool. There are six restaurants, two of which have amazing views of the western sunset. There are five additional bars throughout the property including a couple of swim-up options.

All of the rooms in both towers face the ocean – everything above the third floor has a view of the ocean. It’s located 15 minutes south of downtown Puerto Vallarta – just far enough to feel like you’re in the middle of a jungle.

I’ve been here twice and each time, I didn’t want to leave. The private beach is an absolute game changer.

Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall & Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall

Montego Bay, Jamaica| Starting at 25,000 points | Accessible via Sangster International Airport

Just minutes from Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, the Hyatt Ziva and Zilara Rose Hall are the perfect destinations for both families and adults in the Caribbean. The Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall is located next to the Rose Hall Ziva property. All Zilara guests have access to the Ziva, but not the other way around.

We are headed to the Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall for our honeymoon this summer, so I’ve done a lot of research on this property.

The resorts have massive “poolscapes” to go along with small private beaches. As far as beaches go, the Rose Hall properties have smaller beaches compared to the other Hyatt all-inclusive hotels. But, the hotel offers free kayaks, boogie boards, and snorkeling gear to enjoy the blue water.

The grounds are stunning with lush green plants and paths meandering through the resort. There’s even a jerk chicken shack located near the beach and pools for a quick bite to eat.

The gym has been recently renovated. It has two floors – one for cross-fit training and the second for more traditional exercise machines. This resort was the only Hyatt all-inclusive hotel outside of Mexico until recently when Hyatt announced the creation of the Cap Cana properties.

How to earn Hyatt points

The quickest way to earn Hyatt points is through the World of Hyatt credit card. The card’s sign-up bonus is currently at 50,000 points. Cardholders can earn 25,000 points after spending $3,000 on purchases within the first three months and an additional 25,000 points after spending another $3,000 in the first six months. 

The sign-up bonus is good for a two night at any of the above-mentioned all-inclusive properties. And, while the annual fee is $75, it does come with an annual free night at a category 1-4 hotel.

The other way to earn points is by transferring them from Chase. It’s easy to earn Chase Ultimate Rewards with the Chase Trifecta. Points transfer instantly at a 1:1 ratio. I’ve transferred more than 200,000 Ultimate Reward points over the last few years to stay at Hyatt all-inclusive hotels.

Just because you don’t travel a lot and stay at Hyatt’s on a regular basis, doesn’t mean that redeeming points for stays at these all-inclusives isn’t possible!

Final Thoughts

I’ve been to the Hyatt Ziva in Puerto Vallarta twice and enjoyed it so much I booked my honeymoon at the Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall. And we’re already brainstorming a way to get to the Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana (because the kid in me wants to have fun in the water park!).

The service has been amazing each time we’ve been. The food is above average for an all-inclusive, plus it includes room service, which is great for breakfast or late-night snacks.

Hyatt all-inclusive hotels can be a great value for redeeming points potentially saving you thousands of dollars for time on the beach.
