So glad this property won't have a kids club or anything like that. We stay at the Andaz Maui regularly because it's one of the few nice Hawaiian properties that doesn't cater to families and kids.

Just booked the 3rd free night offer + Citi 4th night for Jan 6th-11th. Will report back.

Was thinking of doing this myself - no issues?

Yes, I'm curious about this as well. You were able to book a 4 night stay with only 2 nights paid?

I did it yesterday - the answer is yes. Resort fees and taxes get you pretty good but still a great deal comparatively. Also was able to apply a DSU to the Lagoon View Suite.

Has anyone had any luck booking a P+C stay at this property? I see plenty of points-only availability, but no P+C. As of now, we're booked into the GH Playa (which we've stayed at before), but I wouldn't mind trying out this new property if some availability comes up.

Thanks for the heads up! I just switched my reservation over to this property and cancelled the GH Playa. The GH worked out well for us last time we were in the area, but I'm excited to try out this new property this time around. ^

Hotwire has a fully flexible rate this winter of $198.

Yea - at this stage point redemptions (either full or points + cash) seem wasteful.

Hotwire definitely has some good rates for this property, but unfortunately not so much for the dates that I'll be there. I'll stick with P+C for now.

Seems this hotel charges variable resort fees thats based on the price paid for the room. Thought its usually a fixed amount per night regardless of room type/cost.

Is this a trend thats in other hyatt properties as well, unlike such as Andaz Maui?

Hi Guys, stayed here on opening night and was the only guest for about 2 days after that. Ended up extending stay and I'm writing my review now but here are some pics. FYI, there is a kids club here. Hotel is amazing. Was upgraded to a beachside suite or whatever it was. Again, really great hotel.

Here are some images and the rest are like uploaded to the postimg thing.

Yep. Have done this a few times this year. All Citi cares about is the 4th night on the invoice. Any promos the hotel may be running that affects other nights, Citi doesn't care about.
