I scheduled our wedding a year and a half in advanced. Paid the downpayment and even finalized our menu and vendors. Our wedding was to be 11/26. I received a call exactly 4 months before the wedding, stating they had to cancel our wedding due to construction. NOT ONE PERSON at this place mentioned anything about construction when we finalized everything in December 2021. My guest-list was done, mailed and RSVPs came in because people are coming in from out of state and overseas. They only offered me my refund and cancelation fee. I still have to find a venue, finalize everything AGAIN and all within 3 months. And the worst is that they do not care! This hotel literally ruined EVERYTHING! And I'm still waiting for my refund!

The hotel is very beautifully and conveniently located. It’s within minutes of Tampa airport, Saint petersburg\Clearwater and South Tampa area. Rooms are very airy and beds are very comfortable! my only complain was that a guest On my floor was smoking and although I reported it, management did not seem to be in a hurry to investigate!

Both stays at the Hyatt were for a Bodybuilding competition, both experiences were great. Rooms are spacious and clean. This visit we had our service dog with us and no troubles. We were happy to see how pet friendly the resort was.
