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.

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.

Pretty nice

Eat at the market grill and the food is pretty good since it is an all inclusive....ya know free, but go for the spa! It’s fantastic! It’s excellent! Get Maria if you can!! I ran on the beach most days. Nice pool clean rooms and very friend people!

Fabulous Rock Star treatment

Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta. All inclusive resorts make for wonderful stays. The food at all of the on-site restaurants are quite tasty, especially Zen. My favorite waiter at the Sunbar is Toro! He knows how to make your birthday memorable! I look the close vicinity of all the options. I’ve been to a larger Hard Rock resort (they were good too) but my Mother always said good things come in small packages -Vallarta does not disappoint.

Relaxed and ReFreshed

Our stay was mostly for business but we extended our stay for 2 extra nights. We felt relaxed and refreshed after our conference. The staff was phenomenal especially Esmeralda who took care of us while we hung out on the beach and Miguel who always greeted us with a smile and a joke at breakfast in the morning at Ciao. What a beautiful spot to have coffee and breakfast in the morning.

Best Inclusive Hotel for our Family of Ten

The Hard Rock Hotel in Puerto Vallarta got the best reviews from our family of 10 (ages 83 to 14) in the 6 years we have been traveling together. (Grandparents, children, spouses, & grandchildren.). The most noticeable difference in staff was that everyone at the Hard Rock always greeted you--from the maintenance crew to the reception staff & at every other level. Friendliness and helpfulness were always apparent. We had 4 rooms for our large group. The two 1st floor rooms directly behind the pool had massive double spa bathtubs--which only our grandchildren used. They weren't as noisy as expected and were also close to the Fitness Center, which all of the 6 adults in our family used. The two other rooms were away from the pool but in the same building, so the pool, fitness center, and restaurants were very close. All rooms had the double spa bath tubs, but they were primarily used to dry clothes when the clothes were draped over the sides.Our groups's favorite restaurant was Zen. The appetizers were tasty with a variety of sauces and the entrees were always excellent. Almost everyone in our group loved the Fried Ice Cream for dessert. A waiter that provided wonderful service at Zen was Orlando. Eduardo and Luis in the Marketplace Restaurant provided excellent service. Eduardo remembered our name after our first visit and both waiters were attentive and helpful. We were always comfortable having breakfast here. The Pool Parties were a blast for the whole family. Dancers, a Stilt Walker, Music and a Foam Machine kept the pool hopping. We learned that the liquor company, Smirnoff, sponsored this party, so waiters were walking around offering shots to the guests. The Fish Fry was another special activity. The staff went to a lot of work to set up for lunch on the beach under a white tent. Whole coconut drinks were alcoholic or non-alcoholic and the fresh fish was prepared on an open cook area. Side dishes were plentiful, tasty and colorful. We were also pleased with the Trio that entertained us. The familiar songs were upbeat and lent a festive vibe to the special treat. Contests were held on the beach too. One person in our party won the Horse Shoe Throwing contest, and volleyball games, both in the pool and on the beach, were fun for the participants. The emcee was not as successful in getting participants for the other pool activities. I think the participation could have been improved with another helper or two. We were at the Hard Rock for New Year's Eve (2017) & it was spectacular! Of course, the music and videos were entertaining as were the dancers and actors who performed some of the important movies over the years. Two Fire Dancers were exciting to watch--one right in front of our table. The Special Buffet went on and on with delicious entrees and side dishes. The favorite at our table was lobster medallions which were heavenly! At all times at this hotel, wine, beer and liquor were available; and not just local brands. Hats and noisemakers, as well as festive balloons and table centerpieces, added to the festive appearance of the area. Following the countdown to 2018, brilliant fireworks filled the air! All in all, it was a spectacular way to welcome 2018--the Hard Rock did a fabulous job again...

One night only

Our flight was cancelled and our tour operator put us up in the Hard Rock Hotel for the night. We arrived at midnight and had to checkout at 06:45 to catch a new flight, so didn't see the hotel in daylight. However we enjoyed a few drinks in the bar, ordered room service and relaxed in the two person Jacuzzi bath. Fab pull out cupboard next to the mini fridge, with our own optic of vodka and whiskey.
