    Comfortable with Beautiful view!

    This was the best hotel i've ever stayed in. The building was beautiful on the outside as well as the inside. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel has to be nice if it has a doorman! LOL! I called the front desk to let them know our fridge wasn't working and they immediately sent another one up to us. We had a wonderful view of the water from our room too! It was peaceful and I would recommend the Grand Hyatt to anyone!! We were only there for the weekend and I didn't wanna leave! LOL!

    Sight see and checking out the Dali Musesum, Florida can be anything relazing to excitment, but it was always nice to know that you were coming back to a very relazing room at the end of a day.

    Nothing to brag about

    Everything at the hotel was acceptable except for the snake that showed itself by the small pool. Not the hotel for people who stay in their rooms. The location was great and easy to access. My room had a breathtaking view of the bay. The "beach" was a man-made sand trap.

    Grand Hyatt - better than expected!!

    The hotel was great, all the help were very friendly and social. The rooms was excellent and the view is amazing. Orbitz got an excellent rate for the level of hotel! Armani's restaurant is very beautiful but fairly a high class pretentious setting. Still interesting to check out.

    Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

    Not much nightlife nearby so if youre planning on partying better off finding a different location. Cab to most closer party spots were around $15. Go to Bahama Breeze about a mile west of the hotel, the Pina Coloadas are AMAZING!, and dinner was good too! Fun place.

    Not real happy

    We checked the hotel website before decicing to stay there. Things were not like they advertised. First there is an overview of the hotel grounds that show all beach front property. When we got there we found marsh instead of sand and no beach at all. Then we reserved a room with a king bed and got two double beds when we arived. Amenities list a stocked minibar Which we discovered they no longer provide. they also listed a complimentary paper every morning. After not receiving one for two days we were told it was only by special request. Another small thing, We went to use the room alarm clock and found it broken. Any of these things on their own seem small but when you add them up they fall far short of the hotels rating and the rate we paid to stay there.
