“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Hotel is located in the south of Macau, near Taipa. It is embedded in the "City of Dreams" complex right opposite of the venetian Hotel.

Rooms are large (we had a spacious corner suite with a nice view), clean and very comfortable. Staff is very friendly and also very welcoming.
We stayed there for 3 nights and enjoyed the whole stay. There are memorabilia hanging everywhere.
Shop is inside the building, also the Cafe and the Cafe shop is located there.

Overall a great experience.
Tip: try the Spa, they do great work!

Room Tip: Corner Suite has a nice view

So much to see with all the rock memorabilia, and very helpful, kid friendly staff. Ordered a couple of fender guitars for our room and had a rocking good time! The House of Dancing Water show was outstanding and in fact we never left the complex that weekend as it was entirely self contained. Very clean and spacious. Great views. Highly recommended.

Hard Rock Hotel was great, from friendly staff at Reception to great spacious corner bedroom .
Hard Rock Cafe was good , food and glasses of NZ Mt Riley Pinot Nior , music was just what we expected ., shopping mall was awesome , lots of fine shops and coffee places..
The Casino,s were lots of fun .. But the pool was the best on a hot day what a way to unwind in the water with a long cool drink in hand ..

Room Tip: The corner suite was great , spacious ..

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

the room is spacois and clean. But it has a weird set up where the seperate toilet room (which supposedly a thoughtful design) does not have a basin. So you can't wash your hand after using the toilet. You need to came out from the toilet room to use the basin outside. To most people, may be this is acceptable. i like the lemongrass shower gel.
Location wise, no shops nearby. So it's better to take the shuttle to go out for shopping n food. Breakfast at HardRock Cafe, if it is possible, just skip it. Very limitted selection, poor quality, not enough utensils, i couldn't even find a cup for the juice.

Went here Jan 2013 with my 2 sisters. The room they gave us was great! It was really big with 2 double beds and seperate bath and toilet. The view from our room overlooks the city. The hotel offers daily buffet breakfast. The staff were great (a lot of Filipinos). The hotel has a mall below it so shopping is quite convenient (though pricey). We were also given free tickets to the House of Dancing Dragons which was very very nice. There is a place to leave your kids if you want to go gamble at the casino-- almost every hotel has a casino. The projected mermaids at the lobby is also amusing. The hotel also offered free shuttle bus to almost all tourist attractions in the city. Though its not on the city district, it still is great since the view during travel is a must see. The whole time I was in this hotel, I did not spend any money for transportation. There's McDonalds at the 2nd floor and a food court as well. Don't buy water from anywhere in the vicinity since its quite expensive, better buy from the city and bring it back t the hotel after a tourist's day out :)

Overall, the experience, and the hotel, are TWO THUMBS UP!!!

I didn't stay there, but I don't think of ever staying there at all.
Without having to stay there, their service is so bad already.
A bunch of us went to the splash party (their famous pool parties hosted every summer), and we lost some items. You'd think that it is pretty well organized because it isn't their first year, nor is it their first pool party. But little would you think that their briefing and training is all so badly done.
We called the hotel and got specific instructions, which the girl at the customers hotline was very helpful (this was at 5am).
When we got to the hotel at 10:30am, we wanted to check with the receptionist that we are suppose to go the security desk and not retrieve it from them. It took them 20 minutes. Not only did it take long, the service staff at the reception has a very bad attitude. Forgive a fresh grad perhaps? We then got escorted to the security desk (after 20 minutes), and had to wait another 20 minutes for the guy to call the security control room, get someone, reconfirm details etc. Even when we told them that we had to catch a ferry at 12:00pm - the receptionist at the hotel said "If you had to catch a ferry, you should've came earlier." Is this the sort of service you get at Hard Rock else where? I'm not sure as I've never stayed with this chain, but by far, as far as I know, it is one of the more well known chains with one of the worst service.

Please don't stay there, I personally do not think it's worth the price - when Sheraton next door, is a lot bigger with exquisite service, and a more ideal price. Atleast they have a magnificent swimming pool!
