Almost Don’t Want To Tell You About This Place But I Will –One of Hyatt’s Best Kept Secrets Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa


This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

Pretty much all you would have to tell me about this place is that it has a private island in a preserve and I can redeem only 20,000 Hyatt points per night in a regular room, 27,000 in a Hyatt Regency room or 32,000 Hyatt points per night in a Bay Suite in prime winter season. The best part is it doesn’t require a long flight half way around the world.

Most people think of great beaches, especially Hyatt ones, as out of the country, like the Hyatt Regency Aruba or the Park Hyatt Maldives. But one of my favorite Hyatt Hotel properties is in the sunshine state. There are other great Hyatt properties in the U.S. like the Hyatt Huntington Beach or the Hyatt Clearwater, but I still think one of Hyatt’s best kept secrets is the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa in Bonita Springs Florida. Only a hop, skip and a jump down the road from Fort Myers International airport.

Here’s a view of the property from their boat ferry service to and from their private island with a fantastic beach.

Welcome To The Property

Upon arrival, we were greeted with a Champagne Happy Hour toast! They are one of the many Hyatt properties that start guests off with a glass of champagne upon arrival.

After being escorted to our Bay Suite, we were given our Hyatt Diamond amenity, two imported beers and Panini bites.

The views of the bay are great. We’ll share a sunset view from our porch later in this post. You also have a nice view of the hotel grounds and many pools including an awesome kids (or big kids) slide. Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Bay Suite View 2

 

The Hotel

The hotel is located in the bay and have a regular ferry shuttle service to their private island preserve. You can see the details of the island by clicking here.

Love the west coast of Florida for the clear water and the kid friendly little waves.

This hotel has a great club lounge. They serve a nice breakfast spread with hot and cold items.

In the evening you can order a glass of red or white wine for only $3 USD – a good discount from the nearby restaurants.

In the afternoon they serve cookies and light snacks, fruits, etc. The fridge is stocked 24/7 and has plenty of juices, waters and sodas. Hyatt Regency Club Lounge Sitting Area

Did I mention they have an awesome coffee machine!

The hotel has 3 main pools from what I could count. Plus they have several hot tubs.

Bay Suite

We used 32,000 points per night (96,000 total) 3 nights in a Bay Suite. It was well worth the points for the extra space with a little one. We typically pay a premium to have more than one room or a room with a dividing wall when Baby Weekly Flyer travels with us. It just helps everyone sleep better. The Bay Suite has plenty of room for a small family. It includes a wet bar, two small fridges, an entrance foyer, separate shower / bathroom in each room, a small dining area, a living room with pull-out couch, and four outdoor porches.

The furniture feels really new and the place is well kept.

Plenty of room to spread out for a few days and get some work done if you like as well. And if the room gets hot, you can always use the VIP hotel room thermostat trick to make your room cooler.

Sunset

The best part was after putting Baby Weekly Flyer down for the evening, we could catch some alone time on the porch and watch the sunset with a happy hour drink in hand.

Bottom Line

The Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa in Bonita Springs is one of our go-to Hyatt properties and a great family friendly hotel. Check out the great summer and hurricane season rates at this property. Then, if you are a Diamond member, consider using one of your suite upgrade certificates (or just use regular points) for an upgrade to a suite. The Bay Suites are fantastic!

Shhh….if you’ve stayed at this property, you know it’s a gem in the Hyatt portfolio. Have you stayed here before? What did you think?

  1. My wife and I just stayed recently (Feb. 13th – Feb 15th) using points. First time and we were definitely impressed. We plan to go back in the future and stay for more than just two nights.

  2. Great review and Sunset pictures (the other pix may have light balance/exposure problems, but correcting the auto exposure feature will fix that).
    So close -as in Florida – is very nice. With or without major Hyatt status, do the nickle and dime you for Wi-Fi and water? (The nickle and dime stuff is why a don’t do cruises anymore; fun, but they will get to your wallet, even for safe drinking water!)
    The room and the view look great! No matter how great it looks, put a towel down before alighting on any furniture and do not use a drinking glass that is not machine-sealed in plastic. “What? In the U.S. he says!” Sadly, yes. Despite that gleaming mirror and the raked carpet, most hotel rooms are dangerously filthy, eve in the U.S. “Resort” hotels and long-stay inns tend to be the worst. They may look clean, but… they are often worse than even a poorly maintained home. Please protect yourself. We’ll hope that the sheets are clean and that the under pad freshly laundered, but don’t bet the bank. I have encountered ‘used’ bed sheets far too many times to attribute it to one, cheap brand; it can – and does happen at the best of places. When it does, raise absolute hell with management! On the spot and with follow up letters. If you have a camera or camera/phone, take pictures and publish them. Gawd! Even Motel 6 provides clean sheets, most of the time. Used, soiled bedding at a major hotel is an unforgivable offense.

  3. @No Fly Zone

    You are one hilarious person. Please, don’t ever proofread your posts! “do the nickle and dime you” is “why a don’t do cruises anymore”! Funny stuff!! “Put a towel down before alighting on any furniture”? Wow! I didn’t think anyone “alighted” anymore. Stop it! I can’t control my laughter. I know English is difficult, but keep trying — perhaps in your hell-raising letters to management. They will understand.

  4. @no fly zone Wife and I just returned from Miami and Key West and within 48 hours of landing we had the absolute worst colds of our lifetime…….despite flu shots and purell use……….it certainly makes us wonder why we are not doing more local Bay Area vacations…….9B&C on MIA-SFO were the coldest most miserable seats we have ever had…….my feet had frostbite at the end of the flight……and now we’re sick………..

  5. Stayed there a year ago perhaps in the same suite. Agreed that it’s a fantastic property that also seems to run a stay three get forth night free promo ever year. Also you are able to use the facilities at their nearby hyatt residence club property which features a lazy river pool. Great for the kids.

  6. Can you book a regular room using points, but them pay for an upgrade to a suite? I want to do 2 nights, but if I choose the suite option it only allows me to choose 3 nights. A regular room will allow me to do only 2 nights. I have no status with Hyatt.

  7. Great review- thx!

    Any chance use of a DSU gets further upgraded from the Bay Suite? Also, is the beach swimmable in mid Feb?

  8. I read this review almost 3 years ago and filed this hotel away in my brain as a place to visit someday. I am happy to report that this evening we own 2 nights at a great price through a charity auction. Can’t wait to visit sometime in the new 12 months.

    Just wanted you to know that your post was memorable.
