Readers often ask about booking all-inclusive hotels with points.  Well, you can stay at Hyatt’s all-inclusive hotels, Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos and Hyatt Zilara Cancun with Hyatt points.  I only wished they had not named the hotels with such similar (at least to me!) names.

An all-inclusive hotel includes your food, drinks, entertainment, gratuities, and room in the price.  I’ve never been to an all-inclusive resort as yet!

How to Earn Hyatt Points

If you’re low on points, here’s how you can earn lots of Hyatt points.

1.   Hyatt Credit Card

You get 2 free nights at any Hyatt hotel after you spend $1,000 on the Hyatt credit card.

You can use these free nights at ANY Hyatt hotel in the world including Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos and Hyatt Zilara Cancun.

You have to call Hyatt to book the free nights.  You can book a room if the hotel has standard rooms available for booking at Hyatt.com.  You can check online before calling Hyatt.

2.   Chase Ultimate Rewards Points

You can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points at a 1:1 ratio from the Chase Sapphire Preferred, (no longer offered) Chase Ink Bold & Ink Plus to Hyatt hotels.

You can also transfer your Ultimate Rewards points from the Chase Freedom to the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Ink Bold or Ink Plus.  Then transfer the points to Hyatt hotel points.

It costs 20,000 Hyatt points for 1 night at the Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos and 25,000 points for 1 night at the Hyatt Zilara Cancun because they are all-inclusive hotels.

To book a room with points at Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos and Hyatt Zilara Cancun you have to call Hyatt at 800-228-3360.

1.   Standard Rooms

You will pay 20,000 Hyatt points per night at Hyatt Ziva for a room for 2 people & 10,000 points per night for each additional guest (age 3 and older) up to 4 people per room.  So if you, your partner, and 3 year old stay at Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos, you will pay 30,000 points per night (20,000 points for the room + 10,000 extra points for the 3 year old).

You will pay 25,000 Hyatt points per night at Hyatt Zilara, Cancun for a room for 2 people & 12,500 points per night for each additional guest up to 4 people per room.  If you, your partner, your 17 year old, and 16 year old (minimum age to stay at Hyatt Zilara is 16) stay at Hyatt Zilara, Cancun, you will pay 50,000 points per night.

That’s 25,000 points for the room + 12,500 points for the 17 year old + 12,500 for the 16 year old.

2.   Suite Nights

When you use your points for the confusingly named “Suite Night” you’re not only getting a large room.  Remember, EVERY room at these hotels is a suite.  Instead you’re getting everything in the Club Premium Plan, most notably the ocean view and premium liquor.

So if you, your partner, and 3 year old stay at Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos, you will pay 42,000 points per night (32,000 points for the room + 10,000 points for the 3 year old.).

You will pay 40,000 Hyatt points per night at Hyatt Zilara Cancun for 1 or 2 people plus 12,500 points per night for each additional guest up to a 4 people per room.  If you, your partner, your 17 year old, and 16 year old (minimum age to stay at Hyatt Zilara is 16) stay at Hyatt Zilara, you will pay 65,000 points per night.

That’s 40,000 points + 12,500 points for the 17 year old + 12,500 points for the 16 year old.  Or you could book 2 regular rooms for 20,000 points and save the remaining points!

Elite Members Get Some but Not All the Usual Benefits

If you have Platinum status (free with the Hyatt credit card) or Diamond status, because these hotels are all-inclusive, you won’t get the benefits you would normally get at other Hyatt hotels such as:

  • Dedicated check-in area  
  • Guaranteed room availability
  • Diamond Suite upgrade at Hyatt Ziva, Los Cabos
Bottom Line

You can use Hyatt points to stay at Hyatt’s all-inclusive hotels in Mexico.  But they have a separate award chart.

You will pay 20,000 Hyatt points a night for 2 people to stay at the Hyatt Ziva, Los Cabos and 25,000 points per night for 2 people to stay at the Hyatt Zilara, Cancun.  You have to pay extra points if you have more than 2 people in the room. 

Here’s how to earn lots of Hyatt points for your all-inclusive vacation in Mexico.
