Vacation Specialist: Brandon Smith
Travel AgentMy name is Brandon, I have been a travel specialist here at Dream Vacations since November 15th 2005. During that time I have sent more than 15,900 individuals on vacation to many various resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean. I love what I do, we make vacation dreams a reality! When you call me, get ready to travel because you and I will find exactly what you are looking for.

I have traveled out of the country to the following vacation spots; Aruba, Cabo San Lucas (2 times), Cancun, the Riviera Maya (8 times), Puerto Vallarta (3 times), Punta Cana and Jamaica (3 times). During these trips, a little of my time was spent relaxing but the majority of these trips have been work trips or FAMs we call them. During a FAM trip we are responsible for touring as many properties as possible so that we can be more familiar with the products we are offering. I feel that this gives me a tremendous advantage over other agencies based on personal experience and traveler feed back.

My most recent vacation was September 4th 2012 to the Iberostar Paraiso Maya in the Riviera Maya Mexico. I spent four nights there and I toured about 22 different resorts in the area. I had a great time this past September and I highly recommend the Iberostar Paraiso Maya!

Frontier Air Charter FlightsWhat are Air Charter flights? In addition to flights on major scheduled air carriers from departure cities nationwide, we offer Air Charter flights through our tour operators such as Apple Vacations and Funjet Vacations. These companies rent the aircraft with the sole purpose of flying vacationers to the most popular sun drenched destinations from over 20 US departure cities. Destination options such as CancunPunta Cana, Jamaica, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Costa Rica and more.

Air Charter flights are filled exclusively with other vacationers traveling to the same destination (charter does not mean little bitty prop plane). These flights are typically non-stop, with schedules that allow you to spend more time in resort. In most cases, one of the biggest benefits to our Charter flights is that your vacation package price is generally considerably less than other comparabel airlines. We use airlines such as Frontier Airlines, Air Tran, Sun Country, Alaska Airlines, Jet Blue and Aeromexico. So if you are looking for a great vacation with a non-stop flight, give us a call soon to plan your next All Inclusive Vacation!

Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos Pool

First of all, when you see a Hyatt “Ziva” Resort, that is their label for family friendly. When you see Hyatt “Zilara” Resort, that is their adult only brand (such as the old “The Royal in Cancun”). Hyatt has purchased the Dreams Cancun resort and are renovating it now (opening in 2015) as well as they have purchased the Ritz Carlton Rose Hall in Montego Bay and are renovating and adding on to it and should open later this year they said, November 2014. The Hyatt Ziva / Zilara in Rose Hall will have both an adult only wing and then a family wing, thus the two names. They also have the old Dreams Puerto Vallarta and are planning a big renovation there, may open later this year as well.

For me, the Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos was a fantastic resort! Big pool area, large enough to get away from the swim up bar and had an infinity pool area as well as a separate activities pool. The food was very good each time I ate there, especially the breakfast. The beach was very large, didn’t use it but looked amazing and yes the waves were high! The resort is located IN San Jose, right across the street there is a dolphin pool excursion and you could literally walk to the bars if you wanted or take a 5 minute taxi ride. You could also walk to the “Mega Mart” if you needed any supplies such as sun screen, batteries, new shorts lol or whatever.


The room was great! It had the large Mexican style tiles (not marble), jacuzzi, double sinks and good size balcony. Most all rooms will have an ocean view. They do have the adult only pool with pool bar in the Premium Section that was a nice quiet relief but it sits behind buildings so no ocean view room. The restaurants were decorated just like every where else, all of which were air conditioned except for one which was down by the ocean. Night life, they have a sports bar with AC and karaoke nights that they are planning on renovating soon plus they have a nice upscale coffee/drink bar right off the lobby, can’t remember what is was called or how late it was open but that’s where we had our meeting with Mike Going from Funjet. They also have a full Martini Bar, 7 total pools and nightly entertainment at the “Grand Theatre.”

Overall, I think this resort is just as nice as the Dreams but I don’t think you are going to see Hyatt Resorts like this available with Apple Vacations going forward. I have no fear recommending this resort as a “6G Apple” if I were rating hotels. I think this resort gives you the best “5 Star” Family vacation in San Jose Del Cabo and for just adults traveling, no reason not to go there. It did not feel all family, it could be good for anyone I truly believe.
