Hyatt Hacienda del Mar is a beautiful resort.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 17, 2010

Hyatt Hacienda del Mar is a beautiful resort. The grounds are beautiful and lush. Most rooms are no more than 15 feet from the beach and the buildings no taller than 2 floors. You can spend every night with your sliding glass doors open and fall asleep to the sound of coqui frogs and the ocean. Dining options at the Dorado were limited. We dined at Su Casa - beautiful location, bit overpriced but great service and food. We also ate at the Hacienda del Mar, again lovely location.. As far as accommodations went, we were upgraded upon arrival to a beachfront upper room (hint - join the Hyatt Gold Club for free upgrades). The room was decorated tastefully in a Spanish hacienda style and the view was amazing. The beach was only 25-30 feet away. Suprisingly, even though we were so close to the beach we were never disturbed by any beach traffic.

If you're looking for a peaceful vacation, the Dorado is the place to go! The grounds are beautiful and lush. Most rooms are no more than 15 feet from the beach and the buildings no taller than 2 floors. You can spend every night with your sliding glass doors open and fall asleep to the sound of coqui frogs and the ocean. We spent the day on the almost always empty beach or laying in one of the many hammocks overlooking the surf. There's also watersports and tours to choose from. At night we would visit one of the restaurants at the Dorado or take the free shuttle over to the Hyatt Cerromar.

We stayed 2 times during one trip in Hyatt Dorado.
You need a car to get there (there is some buss transportation from/to airport, shops, San Juan, however, for the rest you're stuck). You can get very good deals through e.g. hotwire.com, so it shouldn't be a huge expense to have a car. The reason is that Hyatt Dorado not within walking distance from any shop, attraction, facility.
Hyatt Dorado is approx. 45 min (no traffic jams) from San Juan International Airport.

The hotel is very nice and peaceful. The rooms are fine and large enough. All rooms have view towards the sea. The rooms are clean and spacious. We had a standard room. It included a fridge, which came in very handy. Room is cleaned every day. We paid 99 US dollars. Parking is free.

The people at the reception are very helpful and friendly. For the rest, the staff is "invisible" in the positive meaning of the word. You do not notice them, which makes it all very peaceful.

There is no breakfast (! --- therefore the fridge is very handy) served. There is a pool bar, serving lunch. If you like burgers, hot dogs, etc, this is ok. Prices are reasonable. We did it 2-3 times, by lack of anything better. There is a small shop on the premises where you can buy basic necessities, as everywhere, overpriced.

The pool area is large and nice. The beach is a beauty. And the biggest plus of the whole hotel and why we enjoyed it so much: even when it is busy, there are so many lounge chairs available! And lots of space to find a quiet place in the sun or shadow at the wonderful beach. This is so peaceful! Whether you sleep till 9am or 11am, you can be assured that there are plenty of lounge chairs waiting for you. What a difference with several other hotels. Towels provided, 2 for one person is not a problem.

The hotel is about 10 minutes from Dorado, with some fast food options, Wallgreens and a large supermarket. About 30-40 min. from Prime Outlets Barceloneta (recommended!), about 35 min from Plaza Las Americas shopping centre and about 55 min from Old Town San Juan.

All in all, really recommend this place, mainly because it is so peaceful and if you like to enjoy the sun and relax, this is just the place to be (for a very good 99USD deal!)

---> Currently they are either renovating or doing something else with half of the appartment complex (Hyatt Dorado is a time share place) and half of the appartment complex is not open and blocked by a green fence. Some people do not like this "sight", however, I assume you are faced towards the pool or the sea, so...what's the problem :)

Almost like Private Beach

My botfriend and I were choosing between Dorado and Cerromar and ended up choosing Dorado, which was a really good decision. At Hyatt Dorado, we were able to walk out to the beach from our hotel room, have some privacy on the beach. We went to Cerromar and came back right away as there were people everywhere and children running around. If you are going with children, you might want to go to Cerromar as there might be more activities, but Hyattt Dorado is definitely better for R&R.

Unique Quality: Privacy!!
