Our Opinion

Located in Riviera Nayarit, the Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta sit next to the Allegro Nuevo Vallarta and is about 45 minutes from downtown. The beach here is wide with finer sand. The Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta is a large and modern, so there's not much of an authentic Mexican feel. The hotel is up to date and well taken care of, as most Palace resorts are. The rooms are well kept up, as would be expected from a 4+ star hotel. The spa is large and has a beautiful view of the beach. The theatre and entertainment at this hotel seem very professional. Kids are welcome at this hotel, but there are other resorts in Puerto Vallarta that would be better for families.


Overview
The spectacular Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta is located in the heart of a charming Mexican village and resting on the beautiful beaches of Bahia de Banderas in Riviera Nayarit. Plan on receiving the star treatment during your stay as the luxurious guestrooms were built to accommodate rock stars, with a private balcony, double Jacuzzi�, liquor dispenser and 24 hour room service. Enjoy four dining destinations each with decadent food and drink, four fully-stocked bars, peaceful lounge areas, the world famous Rock Spa� and two brilliant outdoor pools. There's an eclectic mix of daytime activities, including spa treatments and watersports, and electrifying nightlife featuring international DJs, live music & entertainment.

An all around 5 star experience!

My fiancée and I recently ended our week long stay at Hard Rock Vallarta! It was our second time staying at a Hard Rock (last year we went to the one in Punta Cana and 5 days just wasn't enough!) This resort was much smaller, which was better because everything was right there. We had a ocean view deluxe room on the sixth floor - good size and a balcony with a perfect view of the resort ! The food was all good.. we loved Ciao and Frida! And went to the market for breakfast every morning.. the crepe station was our favorite. We also went to the market for dinner when we wanted a variety of options because because they had so much to choose from.We were a little disappointed that there was no hibachi at Zen, but was told they will have it there eventually.Our private dinner was good. Because we waited so long when we signed up for it they put us on the beach with one other couple instead of in the garden, which we were really happy about. Our server ALEX was good and the food was alright.. the surf and turf was good! but for the price we paid, the dessert could've and should've been WAY better. Also having to pay extra to upgrade the champagne made no sense when you can get the same one they gave us anywhere else on the resort. The main pool (and swim up bar) was our favorite spot! If it's a crowded week - make sure to get there super early to claim chairs otherwise there won't be any good ones left. The service was really good and fast.Special shout out to ROSY for always taking care of us. The entertainment staff was great.. always kept the fun going. TORO, MANNY, and HUGO were the best!!!!! Very interactive and made it a point to get to know everyone. The shows were all good and they had special days events and activities going on each day / night.The grounds were beautiful and kept very clean. Housekeeping was great and came every day.. they did stop leaving us surprises after the 4th day though. Turn down service was good as well, always brought us treats. All of the amenities the hotel offered were top of the line. Our only complaint was the temperature of the room.. it was either too hot or too cold. Couldn't quite get it right. Overall - we had an amazing time and if you're a fun laid back couple like us we definitely recommend it!!!!

Hard Rock was really a First Class Place, rooms are top notch and the staff is fantastic.

My room had an ocean view and was spotless, the housekeeping was really top notch. The people who work there are what really make the place, they are all so friendly and top notch at their jobs.A special shout out to the people who work on the entertainment side, especially "Toro" and Gabby who really do the Hard Rock proud and should be commended.Having said that, really all the staff was great, my room kept clean and well stocked, I don't think I could ask for more. One of my favorites so far!

The Hard Rock resort was fantastic. The all-inclusive feature coupled with 4 restaurants, several bars (including a swim-up bar!) was just outstanding. No worries about how much the meals were costing, no worries about running up a bar tab just made our vacation so carefree and relaxing.I would have given this 5 stars:1. If they had played more classic rock & roll. I heard mostly techno music, a little bit of Mexican, some Pop, but no hard rock. 2. When I splurged (extra cash) on lobster at the dinner-only Asian restaurant it came cold, with no melted butter. Later I found out that it was cooked only at the Ciao Italian restaurant on the other side of the property. Boo hiss. The absolutely best thing about the resort was the people. The pool bar waitress, Rosey, was the best I've met in 50 years. She was so personable, professional, and helpful, she was really refreshing. Also great were the waiters at Ciao, the Italian restaurant and in Ipanema, the Brazilian restaurant. Our last day there I dropped my wallet on the floor by our table and I didn't even see it until I returned from the buffet and found the waiters had spotted it and returned it to my wife. That is class, and top-notch character.We were so impressed we are planning a family reunion there. I just wish they'd play more classic rock & roll. 😀

Amazing trip......

What an amazing trip. Excellent food, rooms, and especially the hospitality.The only problem we encountered was going into Puerto Vallarta and having dinner. The meal was good, but to return home to find that they stole the Visa card number off one of our travelers was very disheartening to say the least.To have several charges placed on their card (one being for gas in the amount of $700).I would advise anyone travelling avoid Senior Frogs in Puerto Vallarta unless u plan on paying cash.Please don't let this turn you away from visiting the city, just be very leery of what you give people for payment.I would return to the resort again and will recommend it.
