Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta
Wow!! What can we say??! Puerto Vallarta was perfect, Hyatt Ziva was perfect. We can't wait to visit this amazing spot again. We got to visit the town twice! We went to La Palapa for dinner, Metamorphosis for massages, Los Muertos brewery because we are are from KC and love us some beer! Thank you so so so much!!
Some of my favorite things about the resort:
View from the room
Resort grounds were kept up and clean.
Staff was friendly and eager to serve.
Things that would have to change for us to return: Food quality..lacked flavor and variety.
We only went to the Malecon one night and ate at Casa Fantasia it was the best meal we had the whole trip!
Just wanted to touch base and let you know we had a great time at the Hyatt Ziva. We loved the size of the resort as it felt like we really got to know the staff and it felt very comfortable. Rueben at the Club Bar got to know the boys quite well ! The food was really good and crowd was perfect (a good mix and it didn’t feel like “spring break”). We went Whale Watching which was amazing, did the waterfall hike and relaxed a lot! We met some people who loved the Hyatt Ziva in Cabo so we may check into that sometime in the future if you have any feedback. BTW- rooms have not been remodeled yet, only the two “show” rooms, but it was fine. Rooms were sizable and good for what we needed.
All in all, another great “Love to Travel” adventure! We are so thankful for your experience when planning our trips!

Our trip was wonderful. The resort was awesome. I have to start by saying we set our standards high by taking our first real vacation (honeymoon) to The Royal in Playa del Carmen! I'm not sure if all will measure up to how fabulous that resort is. However, this was a close second. We loved the proximity to the beach. We aren't big beach people (love to look at it, but don't love to hang out in the sand) so this combined the best of both worlds. The service was great. It was a quick trip from the airport and we ventured to the Malecon one day. Our room was ok - we did love having a balcony, so thank you for that suggestion. The food was pretty good - we loved the Italian restaurant for lunch, the steak restaurant for lunch and dinner and the breakfast buffet (I already forgot the names!)
Overall, it was a wonderful, relaxing trip and we look forward to future trips with Love to Travel.
Thank you for all of your help!
We had a really good time in Puerto Vallarta! We went off the resort and did 2 excursions. The first was Vallarta Adventures and we went to the Calentes island I want to say. We felt a little rushed on this excursion. We did the sea lion and Danika did the zip line there first. When we came to the monkey portion she was told to look straight and really just pose for pictures. So we felt like they just wanted to get through the motions for the pictures. It was beautiful and still awesome and would still recommend but just not what we thought it would be for Danika. Then we went to Las Veranas. This was our best excurision. Danika was allowed to do this so this was one reason we chose this place. The resort seemed to try to push us to Vallarta Adventures but with her height we knew she could do Las Veranas. What a wonderful place. We always envisioned zip lines in a jungle to be exactly like this place! The swimming slides at the end of our trip was a real joy! Then we got to go and see the monkeys and stay in there as long as we wanted. Here we really got to experience some fun with the animals. Here are a few pictures.
If I had to do it again. I would bring the go pro camera with me on the zip line. They make it sound like you cannot bring them but they do they just require it to be tied on you. We did seem to spend a fortune for the photo’s from the sea line trip but I would say if I had to do it again only one parent would swim with our child and the other take photo’s from outside the pin.
We really enjoyed it and look forward to another trip soon! Love the photo’s you keep posting on facebook and hoping to get to see those places too!
I just realized we never thanked you for everything you did for us nor did we send you photos from either wedding, so my deepest apologies! Here a Lee a few photos from both weddings and I will send some more of the excursions and just random ones that captured the great time we had!
