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.

Best Vacation Ever!!!

we traveled 6 people together, and at first I thought it would be a disaster because I was travelling with 3 teenagers. but no, there was fun for everyone, every member of the family found activities to entertain themselves. There was live music, really good, the shows at the theater were amazing.The food at Zen was spectacular! Thank you, chef Joya.In the spa, congratulations to the best therapist, Yajaira.And last but not least, special thanks to our butlers: Gerardo and Alberto.

Great place for family and friends vacation

This was our 4th time at the resort. Love the environment, small family style resort, and accommodations. The entertainment is very good and the staff really cares about the quality. Our room was great, spacious, just what we needed. The best part is the service. In the past we had Jenny as our server by the pool. She was amazing. This time we met Rosy and Diane who provided truly a personalized service to me and the family members (please note that we are members but not VIP). I love the activities, they are fun and for all ages. I miss the Karaoke night; hopefully, they can include it into their weekly activities. The food is great; I am super picky and there was always something to eat for any taste. Our favorite restaurant was Impanema, the Brazilian bbq style and their manager Edgar remembered us from over 2 years ago. The fact that you are not just another visitor, makes one feel special and want to come back. The only negative comment I have is that the WIFI is not very stable. Wish they fixed it or added extra points of use. Super happy, will be back.

Family stay at Hard Rock

Great service!! loved the staff and all the amenities!! Stayed for 5 days over kids spring break and didn't feel like leaving. Everything from dinning to in house amenities were great. One down side was a foul smell in the lobby and the corridors, didn't ask the staff about the source but hopefully it can be corrected.

Hard Rock - It was just o.k., but still fun.

I will start with the good things. Room very clean. Beds very comfortable. Staff is spectacular. There is always someone to assist you with every possible vacation need or want. Juan at VIP Beach side was a favorite. Drinks are good and top shelf always available. Wine selection awesome. Resort credit is not all its cracked up to be. You still have to pay 20% of normal cost plus use your credits. But, all in all, its definitely cheaper to use the spa and take an excursion. Its just not "free". The free tours included were not of interest to us at all. The spa service, namely, "hot stone massage for 80 minutes" was probably the most relaxing wonderful experience ever. I went to Iris. She applied the perfect pressure with the perfect aromatherapy. Arrive about 45 minutes early to enjoy the sauna, steam room, hot tub and cold bath. The pool entertainment and nightly shows were great. A lot to do at all times. The food was so, so. Breakfast was probably the best meal. Good selection. Every buffet on the property has the same food. Some buffets were serviced better than others. I found some of the food to be empty and required re-filling. Wait staff was exceptional, but food service a little slow. Dinner selection did not appeal to me at all. The Asian restaurant was probably the best. A close second would be the Italian. Brick oven pizza available all day and evening. Very good. Burgers, eh. Not recommended. If you are looking for the "blue water" like you see in Cancun or other areas in Mexico, this is not the case. There are no areas in the vicinity at all that have the "blue water". Its rather dark green, brown kinda. But it does have beautiful flakes of gold glitter in the sand and water, really. Kinda pretty. No shells. Sand is soft and clean. A lot of walking to get from point A to point B. But I am 57 and a little arthritic, lol. Noisy at night because of all the activities, but with door closed did not seem to be a problem. I traveled with daughter, her husband, my grandbaby (2y.o.) and my sister in law.

Our new favorite hotel!!

The service, staff, food, shows, everything was 5 Star!! This hotel exceeded our expectations and will be our favorite hotel when planning another trip to Mexico. Loved the Pacific Ocean view from the beach with the mountains in the background! There were so many options for enjoying the beach/pool for different preferences. Cannot wait to return!!
