A Review of the Hyatt Ziva and Zilara Cap Cana

My husband and I recently spent eight nights at Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic. In short, the hotel is situated on a beautiful white sand beach, its architecture and the landscaping are simply stunning and its staff are almost all uniformly welcoming and are extremely good at showing hospitality.

New Hyatt & Oasis Partnership Means More Opportunities With Your Points

Looks like Hyatt wants a little slice of Airbnb's pie. They've partnered up with luxury home rental platform Oasis to offer "all the perks of staying at a hotel combined with the coziness and authenticity of being at home."

While Oasis is still a growing company, I'm somewhat familiar with it already as they have properties in Buenos Aires and I've met people over the years who work for them here.
