I would recommend Hard Rock Vallarta if you are thinking of going to Puerto or Nuevo Vallarta. It is not Four Seasons but it was good overall. I'll break down the review into sections. 1. Location: It is located in Nuevo Vallarta, which is much nicer than Puerto Vallarta. Nuevo is newer, more centralized to all the other places, like... More

As a Hall of Fame member we had experienced the best VIP treatment ever at any of the Palace or Hard Rock Resorts over the past 6 years. While the resort was a bit smaller than we had previously experienced, the quality of service, rooms and most especially the staff were the best.

I always submit a review after all our trips because we rely on them so heavily when we're choosing our travel destinations (we travel to Mexico and/or the Caribbean a couple times per year). So here's my honest review of the Hard Rock Vallarta... The service was excellent!! Never did anyone ever act like a request was too much. From... More

We stayed at HR-Vallarta April 5-12 for our annual family spring break with my wife and teenage son. Before I begin, let me say the service staff at the resort are very hard working, polite and wonderful people. They do whatever it takes to make your vacation a great experience. The grounds were beautiful! One of the nicest properties I... More

Check in process is easy. Our room wasn't quite ready yet so they took all our info and then we went and had lunch and came back. Buffet is typical above average all inclusive buffet with a wide range. They had cooking stations where they were grilling fajitas or fresh fish or steak and then of course a little bit... More

Excellent facilities and accommodations. Food is great. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Amenities are good except for the wifi access in the room it is weak signal. The staff for housekeeping and restaurants rocked.
