Why doesn't anyone recommend Hard Rock

Just curious why nobody recommends Hard Rock? Every post I see where someone is asking "where to stay" thevHard Rock is never mentioned. Just curious:) we are going in June and will be saying there, just making sure there wasn't something I didn't know... And would regret:)

Thanks!

Good point Jen.

I think maybe because that it is the biggest resort in Punta Cana 2500 rooms!! would think you need trams to get you from point A to B.

never been there, but just returned from up the road from it and hear it is huge.

We love the Hard Rock. Been there 4 times and planning our 5th next year. Check out my last thread from a couple weeks ago, new Hard Rock Live......

Because is too expensive even by Dominican standards, I would think. Well, at least I would not pay what they asking.

We went there but found it just didn't have the island feel,was too Americanized.The casino was better than other resorts.The food was very good.

The name puts me off as it makes me think of prison.

Hi...it you were to choose between Excellence and Hard Rock which would you all recommend? Looking for a place with great beach, lots of options for food, fun environment and overall great all inclusive vacay in DR- Concerned that Excellence may be sleepy but Hard Rock does not have a Caribbean feel at all... trying to decide between the two.

Hard rock is like going to Atlantic City or Mohegan Sun.

You could not drag us kicking and screaming to Hard Rock due to its overall size - who want to go on holiday to a tropical destination and need tram to get about. The same applies to the main hotel zone in Cancun - a concrete jungle is not my idea of a holiday but again some people love it

We have been to Excellence several times and it is a great place - personally I wouldn't call it sleepy

How many nights are you looking to go for???
