This resort is simply paradise within paradise. When you first arrive, you’ll marvel at the immense and gorgeous open-air atrium. The Hyatt offers 806 rooms, many with outstanding views, that are located in 3 towers — a nine-story Atrium Tower, seven-story Lahaina Tower and eight-story Napili Tower. The guest rooms are decorated in muted colors, and each room has a mini-fridge (empty for your use), coffee maker and marble bathroom. Request a microwave at $10 per day.
The Hyatt grounds are truly something to behold with forty acres of tropical ambience, including lagoons, swinging rope-bridges, a half-acre winding pool with 150-foot lava tube slide, an underwater cave, swim-up bar, a keiki pool, waterfalls, six restaurants, an outstanding keiki club and a popular “tour of the stars” on the rooftop. The list of activities within the resort is dizzying, too: hula-dancing, scuba-diving lessons, tennis clinics and an extremely fun wildlife tour of the resident avian, including swans, penguins, colorful parrots and cranes. Still, the list goes on. Mom might love a Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage in the Spa Moana, a full service, to-die-for spa and salon. Or, as a couple, you might want to park the kids with a sitter and enjoy a couple’s massage in the couple’s suite.
The Hyatt produces one of the premiere kids clubs with its Camp Hyatt program. For kids 5 years to 12 years, the camp opens for fun at 9:00 a.m. and closes at 3:00 p.m. It opens again for evening fun from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. It’s true that you may not see your kids much on the days when their calendars are booked with Camp Hyatt activities. Camp counselors keep the kids busy with loads of activities like hula lessons, lei-making, bird-watching, sandcastle-building and even volcano-building.

It's not money's worth, very highly over priced for it's service/condition - it was like staying at Motel 6.
The staff ( guest services ) were not polite, v rude. Room condition & bathroom were in bad condition.
Kid friendly... beach front ... pool is very nice.. birds, penguins and fishes are a good plus...Restaurants and coffee shop are good. Only point they should improve is including microwave .. Valet service gets very busy and takes time to get the car... good experience overall.
