This is the First of the new Ziva (family-friendly) brand to open - accepting reservations for 11/1 - Website is www.loscabos.ziva.hyatt.com/en/hotel/home.html - facebook page. It is located near San Jose del Cabo, just up the street from the new Hyatt Place.

Looks like Points reservations will be available after 11/1 - diamond desk had no info as of yet regarding suite upgrades or point levels.

About the rooms - "Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos offers 619 spacious junior, one and two bedroom, swim up, premium ocean view and presidential suites featuring exquisite and sleek interior designs, hand-made furnishings and designer amenities."

Great News!

I am very interested in this resort. I would be very interested in:

Redemption Level and Diamond amenities.

I too am interested in visiting this property...perhaps for an anniversary trip with my wife next summer.

Looks like we should find out on November 1st how many points we'll need to redeem for free nights. I would imagine that Diamond members will receive upgrades to larger rooms (when available), and probably an upgrade to their Club Premium Plan that they describe on their website under their all-inclusive description. But, I suppose we'll find out soon enough as soon as somebody visits the property after the 1st.

I love how they include a photo of El Arco in the activities section. That is in the other Cabo.

We should be able to find out very soon. This is what it says on the website:

Hyatt Gold Passport award redemption will not be available until November 1, 2013 for Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos.

I'm guessing they are still working on it.

Spoke to the hotel front desk - they will be operating as the Barcelo until Nov. 1, at which time, they will be changing over reservation systems and operating as a Hyatt. Sounds as if this will be an ongoing transition, and there may be very little that "says Hyatt" at first.

Looks like it will be 20k points for up to two people and 10k points per person beyond 2 people up to the maximum occupancy of the room.

That's the current word, though a few hours before that I was told that the points rates weren't impacted by the number of people, so hopefully we will see it all laid out in official black and white soon!

If you're planning on taking the family, you might as well pay the going rate and save your points to use elsewhere.

I think I'll use some points and take my wife on a long weekend stay for our anniversary next year. 60K points for a nice 3-night all-inclusive getaway seems like a good idea to me!

I agree that this is a good deal for 2 people. It looks like double occupancy costs $300-500 for most nights, so definitely a good use of points in most cases. Heading to Cabo with the inlaws next spring. We were thinking about staying at the Hilton, but may change our plans now.

Yeah, just checked rates for our anniversary weekend dates, and it looks like $320.00 per night is the lowest rate available per night. That's not bad, but since I have enough points, might as well save myself some cash.

We've actually never been to the Cabo area, so this new Hyatt option just makes it easier to go and check it out.

..
Are kids counted as "extra person"? If so from what age?
Perhaps GP concierge can clarify this.
