I almost never write reviews, hardly ever. I may have written a total of two reviews over the last 10 years or more. But I am compelled to write one this time based exclusively on my recent extremely positive experience with the Director of Operations at this particular Hyatt location, Chris Lichtman. Customer service is HUGE in my book! I...

Stayed one night for a short get away in a King room with balcony on 3rd floor in Santa Maria building. The room was very nice and clean.

We were really disappointed by this hotel. We've stayed in Hyatt hotels in Australia and they are always high quality. The section we were put in was across the road and old and tired. The rooms were tiny, not particularly clean and had a musty smell. They are badly in need of a renovation as the decor is very dated...

The location is perfectly situated right off the freeway and very accessible to nearby shopping, restaurants and entertainment. The beachside location is perfect! The room is furnished with a refrigerator.

Room was basically ok, spacious clean, a little tired but good AC and a sea view. What we hadn't expected was the number of dog owners who arrived on Friday night. Dogs in hotel rooms isn't something we Brits are used too but as we love dogs it's not been that much of a problem. Until, that is, we stayed...

Hello and thank you for relaying this experience to us. Please know that we take guest tranquility very seriously and when notified of a disturbance from a nearby barking dog, for example, we always reach out to the owner. We do allow dogs but under strict conditions that the owner will be readily available to take care of his pet...
