Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta All-Inclusive Resort Visit in Mid-September 2023 (Late Summer)

Had a chance to visit Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta this summer. This is an all-inclusive resort which means it includes everything in the price such as food, drinks, activities and entertainment.

Weather in mid-September – It is extremely humid at this resort at the time of visiting. I checked the weather and the humidity was at 92% which was crazy to me, coming from someone who lives in LA.

Transportation – VIP Service from the airport to the resort. The driver and people at the front desk were very nice.

The Food – There was some inconsistency with the food. At first, the food at the buffet was kind of bland but after trying a few more restaurants, the food turned out pretty good. Unlimited drinks are also great!

There’s options to make reservations at the restaurants. While we did make reservations, I think we could’ve done walk-ins since there were not too many people. But I guess those who are looking to visit, will need to make that judgment if they think there’s a lot of people at the resort.

Some of the restaurants we tried:

  • Blaze
  • VivaZ Buffet
  • MelanZane (Italian)
  • Deli
  • Pureza (Asian)
  • HyghlightZ Sports Bar


  • Water Aerobics
  • Swimming Pool
  • Beach
  • Ping Pong Table
  • Cornhole

Other water activities such as paddleboats, jet-skis etc., are not provided by the resort. They are run by third parties and if you choose to participate in those activities, the resort is not responsible if anything happens.

The Ocean View

In comparison to other resorts like the Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos, the Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta is pretty small. Behind the resort is a forest view and in front of the resort is a view of the ocean. The water didn’t seem that clear and looked a little bit murky.

Sunset – The sunset is absolutely beautiful. I recommend eating and watching the sunset from the outdoor dining at Pureza. You get a really nice view from the seating arrangement.

The Weather

It’s tropical weather here. It sporadically goes from sunny and cloudy and will rain on whim. But luckily, during our time there, it was mainly sunny and cloudy. It rained a bit during the nighttime but didn’t affect our daytime activities.

Hotel Room – This resort was recently renovated in 2022 so everything is still pretty new. The room is blasting with AC when you first enter the room. But since the weather is so humid, you won’t really notice how cold the room is anymore.

Crowds – During our stay at the resort, there were not too many people. It was not crowded and we were able to relax without fighting through crowds and crowds of people.

Hotel Staff – Everyone working at the resort was friendly and very accommodating. The people at the check in were very knowledgeable and answered any questions and concerns that we had right away.

Stuff I didn’t Like
While the resort is all-inclusive, there were some stuff that we actually had to pay extra for. This was the coconut drinks.
