This small but fun resort has fabulous restaurants, bars and the service is impeccable! Although the rooms are fairly basic compared to other HR properties, the beds are great and combined with a 'pillow menu' you can't help by have a fabulous night's sleep. During the day it's a very happening low key, very comfortable location and resort!

I've visited two other Hard Rock All-Inclusive Resorts- the one in Punta Cana and the brand new one in the Riviera Maya. I'm not a huge fan of Punta Cana overall (I find their service and food quality is lacking, in my opinion). The Riviera Maya was great. But the Hard Rock Vallarta was AWESOME! The staff went above and... More
