These reviews are insane, this place is awfulfrom JimMCM
Anyone who recommends this Hyatt either has no basis for comparison or is a paid employee.
First, the place looks like a condoplex. The sided look with cheap iron balconies is cheezy and certainly not luxurious. The postcard picture looks ok, but once you get up close, you will realize what I mean.
Second, the pool area is weak. While at most resorts you would expect trees and scenery, this is simply a pool and a bunch of chairs. Worse, their are only a few umbrellas, so unless you want to bake, better go inside.
Third, the golf course staff needs help. Indicative of this whole experience was when we checked in with a 16 year old at the golf shop.
Nobody else anywhere, just this kid. Later when we got backed up on the 8th hole and called for assistance fromt he golf shop, the same kid came out to us and said "do you want me to ask the group in front if you can play through". Yes, you idiot! The layout of the 18th hole where you have people walking up and down the fairway is awful as well.
Hyatt tried to do too much here, offering beautiful views for walkers, but also putting a spectacular 18th in the same place. Someone is going to die from a tee shot.
Fourth, our service was truly pathetic. The front desk was exceedingly slow. The servers around the pool were never around. The waitstaff at the restaurant was incompetent. Maybe isolated incidents, but I doubt it.
Finally, because I can't write anymore, it's pretty bad to be at a resort where you can see a Walmart from your balcony. That should say it all.
Best getaway Ever!!!from A TripAdvisor Member
All I can say is WOW!!! I was really surprised. Everything was great, everything from the service to the clean room to the staff to the pool.
You can't find much better anywhere else. We had a king size bed. It was very comfortable and the room was so clean and attractive when we walked in. It was done in an asian/idian decor which was very modern and relaxing. I loved the very large bathroom. I loved having both sea salts for the tub and shower gel for the shower. Even one of those would have been a treat but the rooms have both. Usually I have to bring my own shower gel but they already had it, plus the sea salts. I was in heaven. The pool and exercise areas were outstanding too. If you're looking for a place with a great pool, this is it. This was the reason we picked the Hyatt, it has three pools and they are all great.
We only used the indoor pool though because it's October and too chilly to be outside. The only thing I was disappointed in was the meal prices. Everything was soooo expensive there. The entrees were overpriced, as well as everything else on the menu. You don't get any side dishes with the entrees. They are 4 dollars for each side dish. I think the food could be improved, it's not THAT GOOD for what it costs (with super high prices we expected the food to be better). I would recommend eating at one of the local restaurants in the area and not one of the restaurants in the hotel. Unless you like spending a fortune on food. We looked at all the prices and went to the least expensive one. Which was still too expensive for us. The few things I think the hotel could improve on is... There isn't any plastic laundry bags offered in the rooms. We had alot of wet bathing suits and wet clothes from just coming back from the pool. We had to use the plastic bags that were in the trash cans for our clothes. For the prices for the room that should be included. At least one but two would be nice. If you are planning on going swimming or having wet clothes, I suggest bring your own plastic bags. Also the air in the room was really super dry, We had to wake up all night to keep drinking. It would be nice to have some spring water included in the price of the room since the heater was making the air so dry. Also in the bathroom there are two lights, one for the sink and one for the tub, they are both controlled by the same switch. I felt that the really relaxing bath with the sea salts could have been alot more relaxing if the bathroom wasn't so bright. With both lights on It's too bright to have a nice romantic relaxing bath. I was taking a bath to get sleepy for bed but the brightness of the room was keeping me wide awake. I had to turn off the bathroom light and open the door so the light in the room shone in. But then I was getting cold that way. I would have liked it alot more if there were two seperate light switches or the one in the tub was a heat lamp. That's just a suggestion. Bring your own plastic bags and you'll be in for a surprise too. :-D
Nice, but needs to work on the detailsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Pillows are oddly uncomfortable, bring your own if you don't like gargantuan stiff feather ones. Bathroom is okay, nothing special. Hyatt used to have decent sundry supplies in there, but now they use this stuff that smells/works like lemon dishwashing detergent so don't forget to bring your own from home. Room fridge is handy for storing your own food supplies, and we made good use of ours. Despite the lovely views of the water they offer few activities besides Golf. If you want a Bay experience like boating or fishing you will have to arrange one through a private vendor. Luckily, if you don't mind a little traveling and leave the resort grounds there is plenty to do and we arranged our own boat trip, hiking, and day trips to nearby areas...But really they could do better and offer more arranged activities as it is a resort! My #1 criticism would be the food.
Laughably overpriced & unforgivably bad in their "upscale" restaurant ( whipped potatoes thick as paste and just as tasteless and burnt fish graced a $100 meal) , merely overpriced & forgettable everywhere else.
Eat almost anywhere outside the resort and get better food at a better price. We had good meals everywhere but the Hyatt, and that is a shame.
Top Local Tips for Cambridge
Blackwater Wildlife Refuge Worth a trip for those who love nature. Bald eagles, herons, osprey turtles, fish, muskrats, all can be seen at this very natural park.
Cambridge Diner Good food, friendly service and GREAT prices! This diner is just down the street from the hotel and it is a real jewel - don't miss it.
Visit St. Michael's--30 Minutes away Take advantage of the pool and amenities at the hotel during the day as that is clearly the biggest draw to this property, but plan an evening dinner in St. Michael's. There are lots of great restaurants. The town itself is a great place to take a walk before/after dinner. It's an easy 30 minute drive from the hotel. Easton also has quite a few great restaurants. Easton is only about 20 minutes away, but it doesn't offer the water views that you'll have in St. Michael's.
