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.

Big Family Vacation

What a wonderful trip we had ! We have been here several times prior and have always been very impressed with the graciousness and hospitality of all the staff. This time we brought the entire family- 22 in all! My husband, myself our 4 kids and spouses and 12 grandkids. Needless to say that is a very large group to keep happy - but somehow they did it! And always with a smile.We were able to prearrange spa and activities via email with Milton. He was so prompt in responding to all our requests. It was such a pleasure to work with him. I loved seeing his smiling ace when we went to the Spa.Upon arriving Gerado made sure we were all promptly checked in. Thru out our stay he would touch base with us to make sure all was good.. He was our go-to guy!We spent most of our days on the amazing beach under the palappas. The water was surprisingly warm. Canario and Rosy were always ever ready to keep us supplied with ample drink and food. They became more like friends than staff.The restaurants always provided fresh tasty food with many choices.In Ciao - the Italian- Vladimer the captain, Alonzo and Miguel always made sure we had a wonderful dining experience - even when they had to accommodate our large group.Morning breakfast at the Market we would be greeted at our table by Luis with coffee and green tea. It seems they always remembered your preferences,One of our favorites was Zen Asian. Reyes the manager could not have been more gracious when we requested dining for 22. He made sure we had a wonderful family meal together. Although quite noisy! Our waiters Gerry and Orlanda were soo patient with the requests for burgers and fries for the kids - not to mention the virgin strawberry daiquiris.The Spa was as usual - AMAZING! Hydrotherapy is so relaxing and the attendents so helpful in guiding you thru sauna, steam and Jacuzzi...Oh and Yikes the cold plunge. Kudos to Esme, Rachel and Laide. We did 2 couple massages. Highly recommend "The One". Iris and Veronica have magic in their hands.Our daily housekeeper Elizabeth kept our room clean and tidy everyday. Always leaving very creative towel art to enjoy. In the evening Dulce would come with a beautiful smile and chocolate for nightly turn down.Absolutely major accolade to George who documented our vacation with literally hundreds of candid and arranged photos. No small task for our group. He has an amazing eye and gift which speaks to photography as his passion. We will cherish these photos forever.I must also mention that on our previous trip here last May I misplaced an expensive Tag Huer watch. When I arrived home I emailed Gerado to see if perhaps it had been found. No Luck. About 3 weeks later Gerado emailed me with a photo asking if that was my watch - which it was! He offered to mail or hold until our trip in October - which I opted to do. When we arrived this time my watch was personally delivered by Gerado. I think this speaks volumes for the integrity of these wonderful people.Thank-you - Muchias Gracias Hard Rock for wonderful memories

Couldn't have impressed me more!

I just returned from a 14 day stay at the Hard Rock Vallarta and have to say I made the right decision to stay here and was not disappointed with anything.By far the thing that made the biggest difference was the extremely friendly and attentive staff. They were easy to smile, help with anything needed or share some casual chat. The Spa was phenomenal and the staff professional and massage therapists talented. Monse in particular kept me coming back, I left feeling so relaxed and comfortable after each visit and decided to try a variety of treatments which she excelled at. The pools and beaches were clean and the staff here were always on top of the service and incredibly friendly. Even when I didn't need a drink or had one going they would ask if I needed food or water. Canario and Rosy, thank you for your all your efforts. Food at all the venues was beyond my expectations, especially at Ciao the Italian venue, where Alonzo Gomez was spectacular. All night food options and quality also didn't disappoint, they always delivered before their estimated time. The entertainment staff had an amazing energy, even with a small audience (off season) they were enthusiastic. The poolside activities fun and the nightly shows worth the watch before having a few drink at the Sunbar. Diane, thanks for always being on top of my Long Island ice teas! The easily accessible excursion and adventure staff on site made getting out and experiencing more of Vallarta and the surrounding areas easy and fun.Again, thanks staff of Hard Rock. I look forward to another visit and highly recommend Hard Rock Vallarta.

My wife and I had a blast! Dreamtrips did everything we expected them to do and we will definitely be back. The food was great, service was second to none, and you couldn't finish a drink without someone coming by and asking you if you wanted another. Great Job!
