Since we visit Southwest Florida at least once a year we are always on the hunt for new things to do – and I’m always looking to tour some of the local hotels to help plan Florida trips for clients. On my recent trip to Naples, Florida I looked at staying a night at the Hyatt Regency in Coconut Point, but the rate was over $600 for one night – this was for a weekday in January! Instead, I decided to by a day pass to Hyatt Regency Coconut Point to spend the day using the waterpark and pool facilities. Baby girl and I had such a great day and I’m excited to share my Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Day Pass review with you!
Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Day Pass
Where is the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point?
The Hyatt Regency Coconut Point is located in Bonita Springs, Florida. That is the tiny enclave just south of Ft. Myers, but north of Naples, Florida. This area of Bonita Springs is known as “Coconut Point” named after the tremendous shopping complex located nearby. Adjacent to the retail center is another Hyatt – The Hyatt Place, so be sure you book the correct hotel!
Head west off of 41 on Coconut Road (there is a small sign that is easily spotted when coming from the North, but not as clear when you are coming from the South) and ride right into the resort parking lot. With the day pass, complimentary self-parking is included.
The thing I find interesting about this popular Southwest Florida hotel is that it is NOT located on the beach. However, you can access a boat shuttle from the resort that takes hotel guests to the beach of Big Hickory Island. This sounds divine, but is not included with your day pass.
How to buy a day pass to the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point
I purchased our day pass to the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point about two days before we planned to go. You purchase the passes for the specific day you intend to visit, and pricing depends on the day.
I booked for Thursday, January 30 and paid $45 each person. There was the option to rent a cabana starting at $350.
Your stay is refundable as long as you cancel before 10am on the day of your scheduled visit. This is good to know in case the weather is not cooperating or a kid wakes up under the weather.
Once I purchased my resort pass from resortpass.com, I downloaded my confirmation and printed it to bring with me!
Waterpark at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point
On this trip, we were staying at my parents’ condo, and they have a great pool and hot tub right across the street from their house! So why would we want to spend the day at a hotel pool?
Well the “pool” at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point is more like a waterpark! The property boasts four waterslides (Five if you count the baby one), a lazy river and four pools! Resortpass guests have access to all of these great attractions.
Well, you do have to be over 48” to go on the waterslides. When we arrived, baby girl was measured once and given a bracelet to show she was tall enough for all the slides.
The four waterslides were all pretty fast and a little scary for me – of course baby girl loved them! The first slide is located in the Adventure Pool – the one you come across when you first arrive, which also has a zero-entry and a tiny waterslide for kids under 42”.
The other two waterslides are located in the “lazy river” section. Two of these slides are identical, they start at the same spot and twirl in opposite directions – perfect for side by side slide races!
The last slide is one where you ride on a tube. There are single donut tubes, and doubles as well. Baby girl and I did a double which was very fast!
In this area is also the lazy river. Again, you could float around on the single tube, double tub or just swim. It is worth noting there were no lifeguards monitoring the lazy river on the date of our stay. The resort was VERY empty the day we visited, and the weather was on the verge of being too cold for a water park (about 71 degrees) but we still had a fun time!
While at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point, you can rent or buy pool floats from the towel depot. (I assume you could also bring your own if you wanted – don’t forget your hand pump, I always carry this around with me in my pool bag).
NOTE: The pools at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point are heated.
Lastly, there is an adults only pool area and this is where the hot tub is located. There is also a “waterfall” pool, with plenty of sunny seating (On the day of our visit this area was closed for a private corporate event).
Other facilities at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point
A day guest can use the chairs and towels at the hotel. When you check in at the Towel Depot, you are given a bracelet identifying you as a guest and the staff can give you towels to use during your stay.
In addition to full use of the pools and waterslides day guests can use some of the other outdoor facilities on property. Over by the pond there are hammocks, volleyball, mini-golf and corn hole. Next to the towel depot is a ping pong table for guests.
As for food and drinks, you can order items from the poolside server, just as you would as a hotel guest, and just charge to your credit card or pay cash. On the day of our visit, we ordered lunch and drinks delivered right to our pool chair (the best!).
There is also a restaurant, Corkscrews, out by the pool area.
Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Day Pass Review
All in all, we loved our day at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point. For $90 (plus I spent $60 on food and drinks), we had a great day of relaxation and waterpark fun. We visited on an off-day and there were hardly any other guests out by the pool. Which mean NO wait times for the slides, which was awesome!
The day pass was easy to purchase through resortpass.com and I liked that it was refundable because the weather forecast in Southwest Florida changes by the minute, so it’s hard to plan in advance for a sunny and hot day in the winter months.
The day pass is good from 9am to 5pm (6pm in the summer months) since those are the hours in which the pool is open.
We did tour around the lobby and I would love to stay overnight some day. If you have a larger group, and you can snag a good rate (or a World of Hyatt redemption) it might make sense to go that route.
If you have 6 people, consider renting a cabana for the day, which comes with lounge chairs, a couch, TV, fridge, 4 bottles of water, a ceiling fan, and day passes for up to six guests.
I can’t wait to revisit the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point with little man and hubby – either as a day guest or if we can snag an overnight stay!
Have you ever been to the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point? Have you ever done a day pass to a resort? PS This is becoming a very popular cruise ship excursion.
