Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve Puerto Rico Opens

The “new” Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve Puerto Rico, notably situated in Rio Grande, has reopened following a multi-million-dollar refurbishment.

Framed against the backdrop of the island’s serene northeast coast and the El Yunque National Forest, the 579-room property completed its transformation in August 2019 encompassing a full resort redesign.

“Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve Puerto Rico was designed to deliver high-touch service for a seamless, stress-free experience,” said Dave Johnson, chairman and CEO at Aimbridge Hospitality. “We aim to centre on the guest’s experience and look forward to providing them with the ultimate escape.”

Formerly known as the Gran Meliá Hotel, and relaunched as The Resort at Coco Beach, a Hyatt affiliate, Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve Puerto Rico was acquired in 2019 by Monarch Alternative Capital in partnership with Royal Palm Companies and an affiliate of Aimbridge Hospitality, LLC. The resort then underwent an extensive multi-million-dollar renovation. Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve Puerto Rico is the first entity of RPC Holding’s development plans for the 946-acre peninsula, set to be renamed as Grand Reserve.

Tucked away in the pristine tropical paradise of the northeast coast of the island, Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve Puerto Rico is the closest full-service luxury resort from the San Juan International Airport. The oceanfront oasis also offers convenient access to nearby attractions such as Old San Juan, El Morro Castle, and Bio Bay Fajardo.

Known for natural-reserve setting with bungalow-style accommodations, Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve Puerto Rico boasts 480 deluxe guest rooms, 93 deluxe suites, five club suites and one presidential suite.

Satisfying every foodie’s distinct cravings, the resort offers five on-site culinary and mixology experiences. Other amenities include four expansive swimming pools, including the largest lagoon-style pool in Puerto Rico, and a swim-up bar.

Amenities designed to foster an energizing resort experience include the 12,000-square-foot Rainforest Spa, 24-hour fitness centre, two tennis courts and a basketball court. Guests can also spend the day on the green on one of two world-class Tom Kite-designed 18-hole championship golf courses – home of the PGA Puerto Rico Open.

For the meetings and events market, there are 41,208 square feet of total function space and state-of-the-art meeting facilities.

To celebrate the resort’s opening, travellers can take advantage of a special rate offering a third night free through April 30.
