A group of friends gave the Hard Rock Hotel Cancun a try and we were not disappointed (well maybe once or twice but I’ll get to that..) they placed us all on the same floor which was great! The resort is small so no getting lost and doesn’t take long to get to where you are going. We spent most of the time at the pool and had amazing service by Ivan and Nester! They worked their tails off to keep up with our drinking habits! They were both amazing! The pool bar and pool buffet is closed due to covid so that meant for work for Nester and he did not disappoint! Food by the pool (steak tacos, quesadillas, chicken tenders YUM!) Our first disappointment was - we were right by a side elevator (stayed in room 616) but the elevator buttons right outside our door did not call the elevator- had to go down to floor 5 to call the elevator- annoying but fine. We ate at Zen, Ciao, and The steakhouse. Zen was the best - we ate the hibachi, ciao was great but the steakhouse 😬 we ordered the ribeye medium rare and came out well done 😝. Second disappointment. The mini bar and fridge are not stocked (due to covid) be sure to call room service and get those drinks if you want to drink before 11am - service at the pool doesn’t start until then.... all in all it was a great time. Not sure we will be back to that resort but would love to try out Riveria Maya or Cabo!

Hotel's Favorite
without doubt an exceptional hotel with even more exceptional staff. This hotel has it all multiple bars and restaurants to chose from. The poolside bar in the infinity pool was perfect for sipping a cocktail any time of the day. the only downside of this hotel may be the rooms are a little dated but that wouldn't stop me from going back to this hotel again and again. Special mention to Donie the barman who always had us topped up with our cocktails.

We were so happy to get out of the house during this Covid time and do a getaway, our families thought we were crazy but alas we decided to travel anyways! We were so glad that we decided to stay at hard rock (our very first hard rock)! During these Covid times, they did a PHENOMENAL job on keeping you safe and cleaning, temperature checking and providing you with adequate hand sanitizer. I mean these people were better than anything in the states at this time! We stayed there for 6 nights and had a great time! The pool was heated at some times and felt weird since it’s pretty hot out. My husband and I would just go around the 6pm time frame to enjoy the pool with no sun. The pool is open until 8pm (not my favorite) but other than that, the food was AMAZING, such great food. Be aware of the Legendary people wearing striped shirt that try to get you to become a member of their resort and boy are they persistent. All in all we had a great time. Go if your looking to make the leap! In addition, it’s Turtle nesting season and I had my very first experience seeing a turtle at this resort! It was amazing!! The resort also do a good job of protecting them, such an amazing experience. If interested in seeing this, go at night to the beach side but make sure not to shine any lights to the turtle as this can disrupt the laying of the eggs and we need turtles!!

I will start off with saying the hotel and facilities are really nice. In the middle of the Covid pandemic, the resort and staff are taking every precaution possible. We booked our trip through Katie Tremblay at Beach Bound Getaways. Katie was awesome and setup every detail for our trip. She stayed in constant contact with us from booking day all the way up to our travel date. She was amazing and we will be booking our next vacation with her again next summer. We stayed in a platinum king ocean view room which was nice and had a great view of the entire pool area and ocean. The swim up bars are closed, which we knew before booking. They have staff that walk around the pool area to take your drink and food orders from sun up to sun down. During the week, the service was pretty quick. During the weekend, the pool side service was really slow. They just couldn’t keep up with the amount of guests in the pools and (they needed additional staff). Restaurants were good. Multiple locations for breakfast, and dinner. Frida, the Mexican style restaurant was closed the entire time and a bit of a disappointment. Beach was beautiful, and the entire staff was super friendly. Considering everything going on with Covid, the vacation was a success and we had a good time. I would recommend for any families looking for a fun, upbeat resort.

We just came back from staying here (7/2-7/9). Originally we were supposed to stay at a different resort, however, we had changed to the Hard Rock due to the other hotel remaining closed. It turned out to be awesome! At check in our room was upgraded which was fabulous! More room for my family to spread out. The room we had was on the 3rd floor looking at the adult pool. The rooms were very clean and no issues at all. Let's talk food: Not one bad meal at any of the open restaurants. We ate at Ipanema twice- the Filet Mignon was outstanding! Ciao, the Italian Restaurant was great as well- we ate their twice. Although there was not a Buffet - that was fine, The Marketplace became the Mexican Restaurant and here too the food was awesome. The breakfast was made to order at the Marketplace - I think this under normal circumstances would have been a buffet. It did take a little time to have our orders completed but again, the food was made to order and very fresh. The restaurant Zen was great too- the Hibachi was awesome! The wait staff in the restaurants and pool side were so friendly and went above & beyond to ensure we were taken care of. The Entertainment Staff was great too. Everyone should check out 24K the lip sync show- that was really well done. The only con to the trip was that the room only had an espresso maker and I would have preferred a coffee maker. No worries though, room service was prompt in bringing coffee. Everything was awesome!
