The Four Seasons. I've yet to meet a property in the world that can match the club level experience at this property.

Edit to say - I'm trying to get an accurate idea as to whether or not i'm going to enjoy my stay at the andaz. I realize I am a very hard to please traveler. The things I ask about in my post are things that matter greatly to me, I know music doesn't bother some people, but I want silence and I want a view of the ocean!

Just as an FYI apparently the Spa is not operated by the hotel so the spend is not eligible for GP points.

Having a suite allows me not to have the same bedtime as my kids (and feeling punished) when I normally like to stay up long past midnight.

I think we are trying to help to you see the sunny side (pun intended) since it's starting to look like your chance of an upgrade at this point is slim.

Thanks my friend, it did help me look on the "SUNNY" side!

The adults-only quiet pool is truly quiet.

But it's right next to the pool suites, and I don't think that there's any restriction on young children playing in those pools...

I think he was answering my question on pool music vs. pool children.

Max occupancy for the suites is only 3.

Correct...I haven been to at least 25-30 Hyatts in the States and have never had the occupancy limit enforced with kids. 4 adults may be different but I have no experience with that. It is much stricter internationally and I clear it directly with the hotel before arrival.

From a comfort standpoint, one needs to way suite with King and a rollaway with 2 queen/full beds. The choice is easier when kids are young. If I remember correctly, some of ZBIGFAM's kids are younger so suite with King, another room with 2 queen/full beds, 1-2 rollaways may work better for him, but I will let him answer. Sometimes you have to be creative to maximize comfort when traveling with a family.

I think this may have changed. I have a current suite reservation for 2 adults and 2 children, and when I was checking availability you could also book 4 adults into the suites.

Hi there, yes I have 6 kids (hence the name ☺). Youngest are 3 and 5 oldest just turned 18 (with the rest in the middle). Right now I have two rooms with two queens in each. Was hoping for a suite so that I could set up my little ones in the living room in a crib and rollaway. Oh well...have called every day for two weeks to book a suite on points to no avail....

Hang in there, my stay is the first week of January and a partial ocean view suite just became available for our stay on Monday and I had them apply a DSU that day before someone else snatched it up.

What is the rate for suites with points? I asked about ocean view with points but they told me only basic rooms were available on points my week.

40K with minimum of 3night reservation. Believe it is a partial rather than full ocean view.

I have been hearing conflicting stories about what room a DSU gets you booked into. So are you saying a DSU gets you partial ocean view, and that is all?

Is this the type of property where all rooms are suites therefore there are no suites to upgrade into with a DSU other than a better view?

Seems like kind of a waste a DSU. Would love to hear more about this so I can schedule accordingly as a Diamond with a DSU to burn. Thanks

I actually don't think the DSU gets you a partial ocean view by default. The default is the ground level suites. You may get upgraded past that, but all ymmv.

No, this property is not all suites, and a suite is considerably larger than a regular room.

The x39 and x40 rooms are what you want in the main wing, or the very top level floors (floor 6) in the other two wings.
