Has anyone had any experience with kosher breakfast being a globalist at the Hyatt Regency?

Yes. I was there a few weeks ago.

They do it through room service. There's a per meal fee, and there's a form to fill out. If you email them, they'll send it to you.

They were very helpful, though the service was pretty slow (especially on shabbos when we couldn't call every few minutes to check).
Will they keep your stuff in the Fridge or freezer or only freezer?

car rental rates are pretty high now. does it make sense to rely on taxis instead? what are prices like?

Booked last minute trip to Puerto Rico with the expiring JetBlue Heroes certificates. Hyatt Grand Reserve the best place to stay? Do you need a car there? Any recommendations for activities? Going for 2 days.
