For some that’s mendacity on a seaside all day sipping drinks, for others, it’s utilizing a resort for a spot to crash when you’re out exploring.

Security is at all times a precedence, particularly when travelling with children.
With all that in thoughts, right here’s a glance the model new Hyatt Zilara Riviera Maya.
Concerning the property – Travellers would possibly know this property as the previous Secrets and techniques Capri, and whereas the situation and resort construction is similar, all the property has been fully renovated. The adults-only, all-inclusive resort simply opened December 1, 2022, so we had been among the many first visitors. It’s a smaller property with solely 291 rooms (for comparability, many resorts begin at round 500+) which provides the property a extra intimate vibe.
Meals & Drink – The food and drinks are each improbable right here. There are 4 eating places on web site; 3 themed Tempest (Asian and incorporates a sushi bar, teppanyaki desk and common eating), Capri Grille (rustic Mediteranean) and Lola Seashore (beachfront sit-down seafood and snacks) and 1 buffet (El Comedor).

As a result of it’s a smaller resort, the eating places by no means really feel such as you’re consuming in an enormous meals corridor and resemble extra of a pleasant place you’d eat at in a metropolis.

The seaside is excellent – the sand is so smooth and white and there are many loungers and huts out there. We stayed on the resort 2 nights, and the primary day the water and seaside was free from sargassum, whereas the subsequent it was there fairly a bit. It ought to be famous although that workers was very on high of it and rapidly had it cleaned each on the seaside and within the water.

There’s additionally a Mayan Ritual which you could take part wherein was very attention-grabbing and a method to be taught a bit extra about native tradition.
Spa – Whereas we didn’t expertise the spa on this go to, we did get a tour and the Zen Spa itself is gorgeous. We visited after attending the Mayan Ritual and instantly felt peaceable in its serene environment that incorporates a hydrotherapy circuit that’s nestled in an open-air, thatched roof enclosure. We might simply see spending a number of hours right here and coming again fully rejuvenated.
Suggestion: This could be an ideal setting for a marriage or honeymoon, or romantic celebration and we’d extremely, extremely suggest.
