The current opening is scheduled for December 2016, according to @HyattConcierge on Twitter, but still no official dates or availability to book yet.

I'm hoping it stays on time and shows up soon. I've got 3 nights scheduled for GH Playa del Carmen, but I'd like to try this property instead!

hmm. basically no seasonal variation so far, will almost certainly change.
rates could easily be rack rates, compared to values at other mayakoba.

top 3 suites (starting at double the rate of lowest room as noted) >
~$1K 76m2 oceanfront deluxe plunge pool overlooking beachfront
~$2K 123m2 2BR two room bi level plunge pool ocean view
~$5K 600m2 2BR presidential ocean view

seems odd beach suite is a little less "beach is just a short walk away"

You can get a 4-night stay in May 2017 for $1600 all-in, using the hotel's Opening Free Night offer for 3rd-night free and Citi Prestige for 4th-night free. non-refundable.

Taxes & Fees are a whopping 34%.

20K/n points award available for Andaz King via telephone, not online

no P+C availability via telephone nor online

DSU category is Lagoon View Suite, which is cheapest suite category, room type says includes private plunge pool (only DSU inventory globally w/ plunge pool?)

No full-points suite awards available for 32K/n

Suite upgrade awards for 6K/n points plus standard rate $600/n are available into Lagoon View Suite

I've been to Zillara and had the best week of my life. What does everyone think should I give it a go here in Febuary?

Disappointed there is not a kids club at this location. My 4 year old loved the Cambi kids club that was at the Andaz Papagayo

if paying >
stick with refundable rates as these may be rack not true 'best available rate'
consider combining with other mayakoba - banyan tree, rosewood, fairmont

When I see rates for a standard room such as at this property and PH St. Kitts, I just wonder whether the guests paying such ridiculous prices are high when they book. And then remain high all the way through check out time.

I want some of what they are smokin'
