A resort town basically carved out of pure jungle, Cancun was nothing but birds and iguanas as recently as 1974, when development began. Set upon the Yucatán Peninsula, the city is thronged by famous ruins: centuries-old pyramids, temples of the ancient Mayans, travelers who didn't get to the Hard Rock Cafe in time. Just kidding! But you will be sorry if you miss us. Nightlife options are plentiful here, with everything to amuse from sports to gambling bars to romantic piano bars. Trust us 'cause we've already scouted it all out. By far the best choice is your resident expert on having a good time, yours truly, the Hard Rock Cafe Cancun. So after you've hiked through the exotic jungles and explored the ruins, get ready to uncover the real treasure, our Cancun Cafe!

Hard Rock Always Rocks!

We stopped in for nachos and beers and as always you can spend hours walking around and reading and searching the music displays! The food is fresh and good and the prices are, for the most part, reasonable! Locted right on the beach in the "Party Zone" and worth the stop!

We weren't sure this would work for us as we were a group of eight and sometimes that number presents a challenge to the level of service. However the service was excellent, the food delicious and the atmosphere great fun. There was a live band playing which had us all up and on the dance floor...... It has all the... More

I am not sure how others are rating this restaurant. The Hard Rock Cafe Hotel Zone Cancun is closed. I think there is a Hard Rock Hotel further down Kukulcan.

Made a big difference...portions here are huge and the taste was amazing. They catered for 13 of us (Stag Party) and they were brilliant. The service was great too.

I was so looking forward to this visit. Only to find out that this location and the one at the airport are closed. All I wanted was a tshirt to fit in with the my others from the placed that I've visited.

very nice and very fun! It feels like the fun vibe that would be from a hard rock in vegas or elsewhere, but it was very nice. Service was great, and it was what we had come to expect.

This is situated in a mall - now closed down and has gone into a state of disrepair- the whole mall where it is situated stinks of mold so much that it takes your breath away. Funny watching people having their pictures taken in front of the hard rock guitar which is all broken up - a sorry state to... More

We ate here on 2 occasions, we loved the food and the cocktails even more, great view out of the windows of the beach and sea! Food was ample so much so we couldn't finish it all, but just what we needed!
