Wonderful stay, felt catered to the whole time.
We went to Zilara for our Honeymoon/Winter vacation. We loved our stay, and would certainly go back and recommend it to anyone!
Here are some things we thought was worth mentioning:
You get access to Hyatt Ziva - 5 minute walk to the family-friendly resort, Ziva, that is attached but operates semi-separately. You can eat at any Ziva food (Coffeeshop, French, Brazilian, Italian, buffet etc.), you can also participate in any of the Ziva activity program, use their beach/pool etc. We stuck to the Zilara activities, but ate many meals at Ziva.
Fantastic Restaurants - we loved that we did not have to make reservations, were not limited to how many times/which one we went to. The breakfasts lasted until 11am. We especially loved the French Toast from Urban Heatz and the Brazilian steakhouse. That being said, the buffet restaurant was still fantastic as we tried it once for breakfast, lunch and dinner each. The rest of the time, we went to the restaurants.
Genuine service - everyone was very accommodating, no pushy sales pitches and shout-out to Kevin from the Brazilian steakhouse who was able to get us the chocolate lava cake from Petit Pariz, the French restaurant.
Great snack options - Jerk Chicken and Pork were very tasty. Also pastries, muffins and smoothies were options during the daytime. The Ziva side has pizza, burger/hot-dog/Jamaican patty cart, a child's dream candy shop, which had wall-to-wall candy, cookies, ice-cream (the cookies and cream flavour had real cookies crumbled into it). We were never more than 50m away from food.
Room - spacious, elegant, clean, quality linens, had most things you needed. Only issue was we found the pillows fell flat. There are no bad views in the place.
Beaches - We checked out both the Ziva and Zilara beaches. The Zilara water was a bit pebbly. Both beaches have wavebreakers, making the waves quite manageable, even for those who don't swim much/at all.
Entertainment - wonderful bubble party, Z crew threw entertaining events, evening live musicians were absolutely incredible - I would have happily paid to see them in a concert!
The best all-inclusive resort I've been to!
