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.

Location: On the beach, next to the Allegro Nuevo Vallarta in Rivera Nayarit, 30 minutes to Puerto Vallarta, 15 minutes from the airport.

Viva Mexico and Viva Hard Rock Puerto Vallarta!

Large room with all amenities provided and a personal Jacuzzi! Since I was only one in my room I felt a bit guilty using it but when in Puerto Vallarta...Most rooms face unto a complex of swimming pools and palm trees. Of course, the sea is just beyond that. I was there in September and, for me, it was hot in upper 80's and 90's. Good for a tan but sometimes challenging for us weak of heat. The air-conditioning in hotel in hotel and rooms happily was most reliable. Of course, Hard Rock is a resort with rock music from several generations accompanying your stay. For me, it took a bit of time for me to get used to the music but eventually it became part of the decor and obviously a signature element of this chain. If nothing else, it does keep things 'upbeat'. I was there for a family wedding and that was very well handled by coordinator, photographer and officiant alike. Generally, the service there was sparkling (shout out to Chuy and the gang), the food, reliable and copious but not superb, the drinks flowing, and the nightly entertainment, heartfelt but certainly not Vegas quality. There is a small but well stocked gym and four or five restaurants on site. My favorite was the Japanese, but there is also Italian, Brazilian, Mexican...There are lots of places to explore in the Old City and things to do nearby (Sea Park, historic Churches, famous residences, etc.). Even though I communicated in Spanish, English is also an easily accepted language of communication. I was only there four days, and I'd love go back again and see what other adventures this hotel and Puerto Vallarta have in store. Viva Mexico! Viva Hard Rock Puerto Vallarta!

We were there last week and had a great time. It was our second time this year. El Toro made sure our drinks were full at all times. The activities crew was great especially Golden Boy. At night we hung out at the Sun Bar and Diane took great care of us. Gomez made sure dinner was perfect at Ciao. Great crew at Zen restaurant. Our server Isela was very good and the Manager (Reyes) brought the Chef (Joya) out to meet us after dinner. Reyes you are a great manager. Our vacation planner (Peter) was so helpful in booking my spa treatments and transportation. Thank you everyone for making our trip great

Almost a Top Five

Great Resort, food is good, the All Inclusive is really great.Quality of alcoholic beverages is above the average.Service is really good in any department. They have several options for making kids feeling as important as parents.Room service is fast and with a lot of options.In some rooms they need a little more maintenance, specially with air conditioning. Bathroom is spacious but needs also some fan verifications to extract bad smell. Jacuzzi needs some cleaning.Pools need some painting down the bridges, a lot of humidity and oxide with bad smell.As you can imagine, music is great, not as noisy as some advisers complain.If Hard Rock Vallarta can solve these little details, they easy can be a Top Five resort all above Mexico.Optional: People working there, at Pool, at several restaurants, bell boys, etc, everyone deserves a little tip for their smiles and service. (2/3 USD everynow and then is perfectly seen)A must: For one day and using your credit resorts, stay at a pool/beach cabana, food options, drinks and service are supreme!!

Such a fun and relaxing vaction

Ramses and Gabriel were just two of the awesome employees/staff at the HRH. The food and drinks were incredible and so much fun. The fire show was awesome and the later activities for 21+ make me wish I had gotten more sleep during the day so I could party with my fiance in the club. Had a blast! We went in August and I say that because I think the weather had a lot to do with our clothes and towels not drying without the use of the hair dryers that come with the room.

Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta

Formerly The Palace Resort, The Hard Rock is a mid-size resort with wonderful amenities! The resort credit offered can be applied to tours, spa, and other options. The restaurants offer wonderful choices for all palates. Personally, I loved the Italian restaurant. The service is awesome everywhere at the resort. The rooms tend to be on the small side compared to other resorts, but they are nicely appointed with Jacuzzi and private sink and toilet area. A French balcony with slider to let some fresh air in room. Liquor dispensers in the room. If you like music and entertainment this is the place. Take the complimentary bike ride to see the surrounding areas.
