The Hyatt Regency Coconut Point, Bonita Springs is a Gold Passport Category 4 property requiring 15,000 points for a free night, or a great use of an annual Hyatt Visa free night award. The property is located in Bonita Springs, which is in between Naples, FL and Ft. Myers, FL.

As I had a few Diamond Suite upgrades left to use this year, I decided to redeem one for a Bay Suite, which was confirmed at booking.

The resort has a grand lobby as you enter, and reception is located in the back on the right hand side. Arriving around 4pm, my Bay Suite was ready upon arrival, which as the front desk agent described as two connecting rooms. The main room is the parlor and it’s connected to a regular room.

As a Diamond Member, I had access to the Regency Club located on the 17th floor, which appeared to be recently renovated.

The club had an assortment of soft drinks and bottled water throughout the day. In the evenings from 5pm-7pm, there was complimentary beer and wine available.

The beach area has umbrellas and beach chairs for guest use, however you must bring your own towels and there isn’t any food or beverage offerings on the beach, so make sure to bring your own if you’re coming over for the day.

Bottom Line

Overall, the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point, Bonita Springs is a nice resort, if you’re looking for a getaway. If you’re a Diamond member, you’ll have added value as you’ll get access to the Regency Club.

When it comes to using a suite upgrade here, the rooms are fairly large to begin with, so unless you need a suite, you may want to consider saving yours and just taking a regular room with a view of the bay.

The hotel just opened their new expansive pools and waterslide area. Now featuring 3 new waterslides and a lazy river, this will be a great spot for families to stay.

  1. My wife and I actually just stayed here this past weekend in a bay suite! We chose it because they allow dogs and I had a suite upgrade which was perfect for some roaming room for them. We had a great experience overall, the resort is beautiful,the staff was great, they all knew us as the ones with the two little dogs. We will definitely be returning as its only a 2 hour drive so a perfect weekend getaway.

  2. I was just researching this property for a spring break long weekend trip. Thanks for the review… looks like there will be plenty for my kids to do here.

    Too bad, I will have to wait until 1/1/17 to use my DSU since the reservation will be in April. but then again, I may not use one like you suggested..

  3. This is our favorite Hyatt Regency hands down! I’ll go one step further it’s one of our top 5 Hyatts overall……Andaz Tokyo, Andaz London, Park Hyatt Vienna and the new The Confidante Miami .

    What we love about the property is how expansive it is. The private beach with the ferry service was a hit with our little one. The restaurants are great onsite albeit a little pricey. The service was top notch on both of our visits there. I forgot what suite we got there with our diamond suite upgrade but it was huge but I can tell you it was not an “executive suite” which unfortunately is becoming the norm for Hyatts.

    Since I travel a lot for work its shocking how certain Hyatt Regency’s are sub standard especially since this property has set the bar so high. A must stay if you are considering

  4. I stay there weekly for work. What an amazing property and fantastic staff. Dessert in the club from 8-9 PM is great too!

  5. Good service, but this hotel is way overrated in terms of the hard product. Not sure what the draw is? The rooms are very average and the restaurants, pools, and even the grand club are overflowing with screaming kids (at least when I was there). Not my idea of a relaxing place to stay.

  6. Love this hotel. Originally stayed here for work but now pop over now when I can for a weekend, especially off-season when rates are low. I especially love the outside lounging areas on the terrace of the hotel. On one of my visits we had the usual Floridian afternoon downpour and everyone just moved to the couch areas. Cocktails with a view of the rain. Magic.
