Hyatt Zilara Cancun, Mexico for a long weekend
Part One: Hyatt Zilara Arrival Experience and Room
Part Two: Hotel Amenities
Part Three: Restaurants and Chef’s Table
The Hyatt Zilara Cancun has so much to see and do, that we only left the property once, for a walk on the beach.
The pool spans nearly the entire property along the beach. There were dozens of cabana’s, a swim up pool bar at Pelicano’s, a water volleyball area, and excellent service from the attendants walking throughout.
We opted to get photos of the pool at night, because that was the only time we could get it relatively empty. It was really quite tranquil at night, too.
The main area of the Hyatt Zilara Cancun was a source of interesting events every night except for Sunday. There were folks playing with fire, climbing drapes (I joke), there was a pop-up market, that had freshly made churro’s and other Mexican sweets.
The evening shows were entertaining.
The Saturday evening market.
Mexican sweets, this was filled with cheese. Churro’s were behind this stand.
There was also a store for necessities, like sunscreen.
Before we went, we had decided that if there was a “reasonable” (by US price standards, not Southeast Asia), we’d consider having a spa treatment, since the facility looked quite nice in photos. When we checked in, there was a “deal” for a 90 minute couples massage. This also got us access to the spa’s facilities (although I think we might have had access by virtue of our Hyatt diamond status).
There were three showers.
There were two hot tubs, as well as a cold plunge. Finally, there was also a sauna and a steam room.
The Gym was not co-located with the Spa, and had perhaps the best air conditioning in the entire hotel, naturally.
It was ADA compliant.
There plenty of pieces of workout equipment. I’m not really an expert in this area, but things looked modern.
There was also a lap pool outside, though it was closed when we walked through.
And then there was this… which left me a little confused.
This studio was identified as “Pilates Studio” so I assume that is what these contraptions were.
Hyatt Zilara Cancun 24 Hour cafe
The place we spent a lot of time, was the 24 Hour Lounge. It was stocked with some of the coldest beer in the hotel, some light bites, a couple of pool tables, a ping pong table, and generally had the Olympics on (we were there during week two).
Its important to note, that there was an attendant in the lounge whenever we were there, he kept everything stocked, and even set up the pool tables when not being used. He was one of the most polite, and hard working staff members at the hotel.
Overall, the Hyatt Zilara Cancun had excellent amenities. Despite the number of people at the hotel (it was north of 85% capacity when we were there), it didn’t truly feel crowded, even despite a day of heavy rains.
