I’ve been there and it’s nice but super isolated. So basically nowhere to go but resort. I feel like Cancun would be better for a bachelor party IMO.

like

Hyatt Ziva Cancun - Turquoise Tower. Great resort plus walking distance to the party area. I’ve also heard great things about Le Blanc.

like

But yes I love Hyatt and their points are quite valuable.

Also I feel like there are certain brands / resorts geared more to a party vibe and Hyatt Ziva / Zilara is not it. It’s def more of a family / couple vibe.

like

Don't do DR, you'll pretty much forced to stay on the resort.

Word of advice don’t do grand Americana in Cancun.. it’s fine for families but not for bachelor party, but great location. The Hyatt ziva next door sounded more like a bachelor party resort with DJs and stuff
