It's one of the most gorgeous beachfront properties in Cancun.
As soon as my daughter saw the Hyatt Ziva's stunning views of the Caribbean Sea, she knew this was where she wanted to get married. So after nearly a year of planning, 90 friends and relatives joined us for her destination wedding and had a blast.
We arranged private events such as a welcome dinner on the beach; a day outing aboard a catamaran; and cocktails by the fire pits at sunset. Of course the highlight was the wedding ceremony at the gazebo that overlooks the ocean, followed by the reception at the rooftop venue where we danced the night away.
I've booked many destination weddings for clients, so it was fantastic to actually be part of one, experiencing for myself the energy and excitement of being surrounded by family and friends having the time of their lives throughout the entire getaway. The memories that were made are priceless.
The majority of our guests stayed five nights at the adults-only Turquoize section of the Hyatt Ziva. It offers a huge bathroom area with double sinks, spacious vanity, a walk-in glass shower, and tremendous closets that open on both sides so you access clothes from either inside the dressing area or outside of it. I want a closet like this in my house.
Staying at Turquoize means having an exclusive check-in area, infinity pool and bar, plus access to the spa's sauna and facilities. Each suite is also assigned a butler. Ours was wonderful, even assisting with steaming the bridal gown.
Those who traveled with children opted for the ocean front Pyramid Suite, a two-level room with two balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Others enjoyed the Dolphin view master accommodations that overlook the massive pool where dolphins swim. Here, one can sit on the balcony and spend hours watching these mammals at play. Feeding time was also fun.
Club Rooms grant access to the Club Level Lounge that features drinks, appetizers, and continental breakfast.
Our nightly hot spot was the Tres CerveZa's sports bar where we danced to live music, and snacked on a variety of chicken wings. I think there were more than 20 different sauces offered. It's also a microbrewery.
Chevy's, another fun eatery, is a throwback to the days of drive-ins. I sat inside a car and enjoyed a tasty grilled chicken Caesar's salad. It's a great photo op.
Other dining venues include Lorenzo's for Italian fare; Moongate for Asian; Habaneros for Mexican; and Bastille is the French restaurant for adults only. Buffets and snacks are available throughout the premises.
One extra special place is the candy parlor, Pasteles - a childhood fantasy come true! Walk in and help yourself to candies, cookies, lollipops, and chocolates galore. There's cotton candy, cakes, ice cream, and a chocolate fountain.
The Hyatt Ziva is walking distance from a mall, flea market, shops, restaurants, bars, and the famous Coco Bongo.
