We stayed at the Hyatt Place Los Cabos for the first two nights of our vacation in Los Cabos. Our quick review…
Points used: 5000 per night. This is a Category 1 Hyatt property, and therefore the lowest cost in points. The regular rate is around $90 per night. There are no resort fees.
The property is practically brand new, opening its doors in late 2013. However, a hurricane swooped in October 2014, which resulted in a lot of damage, so much in fact that the hotel had to close and undergo extensive renovation work. So it is a brand new hotel twice-over!
The hotel has a prime location with bus transportation, ATMs, shopping and restaurants all within a five-minute walk. It is also in a safe area with lots of activity and lights. The staff are friendly and bilingual and the hotel has pretty much all that we could want — outdoor swimming pool, well-appointed 24-hour access gym, room service, bar service, computers and comfy sitting areas indoors and outdoors. Our favorite part was the extensive breakfast buffet that featured fresh fruits, a granola bar, different juices and a wide variety of hot foods. Seriously, since breakfast goes until late morning, you can pretty much fill up and not need to eat again until the late afternoon/early dinner. Wifi in the hotel was pretty strong and fast. Our room was spacious and well-appointed with plenty of plugs to recharge.
About the only thing we didn’t like was one of the elevators was out for almost an entire day, so there was just one to service all five floors and all the guests. Normally this wouldn’t be a big deal because we could just take the stairs, but the stairs up are not accessible through the public spaces. So we were forced to use the elevator going up, but we could use the stairs going down because they would empty out into the employee-only area but we could find our way out to the main lobby. Not a huge deal, but the waits for the elevator could be tiresome.
All in all this was a fantastic place to stay, offering a great value for all that you get. We were very satisfied with our experience and we would most definitely stay here again!
