Anyone been? Thinking of nipping by to visit a friend who'll be doing some work down there.
I think the seaweed issue applies to pretty much the whole area unfortunately.Just reading tripadvisor I see a number of mentions saying that the beach isn't nice due to the seaweed issue... but the hotel itself looks nice. Playa has changed so much since I first went there, and we popped in a month or so ago on route to Cozumel, lots of very high end hotels on the outside of town.
In terms of award options, not much to look at other than a couple of Wyndams at 15K..
I'd love to. We go to Cancun nearly every year. I'm excited for new points options in the area.We stayed at the hotel the first week it opened. The seaweed didn't bother me at all. The hotel was the bomb! My kids loved it and the lounge was the best Hyatt lounge I have ever been to. I think I gained at least 10 lbs on that trip because of the delicious food they served in the lounge! I posted a bunch of pictures the Hyatt Playa del Carmen on my personal blog. I guess I can post the link if anyone is just dying to see my pictures!
Better late than never...Hyatt Playa del Carmen, Hyatt Aruba? I've narrowed these two choices for a Thanksgiving, 2016 stay. Stopped in to the Hyatt, Aruba on 2/14/16 and asked what they offered for a Diamond week upgrade. It's either an OF efficiency or a 1 BR OV. Has anyone used a Diamond upgrade @ Playa del Carmen .... and what did you get? TY.
