Stay & accommodation was awesome, we enjoyed all the restaurants & Especially Kabab & curry Indian restaurant. All the staff are Superstars, We especially Thanks to the main CHEF VISHWANATHAN who was very much concerned about every guest especially our baby girl with her favourite food. Which shown his kindness & humanity. We felt very happy & very much comfortable having that facility. We highly appreciated his great work and dedication towards the place. Server Pradeep & other 2 guys were Superfast & very kind to all the guests. All the very best to them. Special mention to all the cubby drivers, housekeeping and the maintenance team... Great teamwork...

What can i say about hard rock, amaizing place, staf food and service. This was my second time in Maldives. This time with my little girl 1 and half old. I was worried about the cause of the covid pandemic but once we arrived we relaxed completely because everything was very safe and all protection measures observed in the smallest detail. So from this point of view you don't have to worry about going to hard rock on the contrary during this period the prices are very good and the planes have enough free seats and everything is well organized. The second fear was how I will deal with the food of the ferrite which is very capricious and usually eats only blended. Thanks to the chefs especially karim had fresh food made every day as i wanted. hard rock services for children and babies are the best we have met and we travel with the little one from 6 months . You have everything you need both in the room and in the common areas, activities for children and the staff is very attentive. We had booked 15 nights and we ended up extending it to a month so much we liked it. we wanted to extend two more weeks but because of the flight we had to leave but in march we will definitely return for at least a month with the whole family. Why do we like hard rock so much: -everything is very new, very clean, and well maintained. -Extraordinary food with many options between the 12 restaurants. chefs karim and alesio prepared us some delicious special menus whenever we wanted. -services of the highest class, whatever we asked for babies or for us we received even if they had to be brought from another country, which I find incredible.One ex: I ran out of cigarette heets and they brought me from Dubai. -whether you want to relax or you are an active person you can find what to do, we admired the sunset at sunset ritual, we walked on the bridge that leads to the marina admiring shark fish and sea cats. beach volleyball competitions, pool activities and good mood from hard rock cafe we ​​already miss. -Room, I had the platinum overwater villa which was wow. We enjoyed our pool and the ocean which were always warm. All rooms are equipped with everything you need, you can choose movies, children's programs, music and sound bar, bath products and personal grooming. -great staff, good people who made us feel part of a big family, I have no words to thank everyone especially Tolga and Mufyd for all the support throughout the stay. Miss you guys and I hope to see you again in March, Besnea family

This is the best hotel I have stayed at. Everything was brilliant, the room, pools, beaches and service all top quality. Having access to all the restaurants and other island was great especially with the kids as it provides some variation to the buffet every night. My only criticism is the all inclusive situation for the kids (age 11). The hard rock buffet and pool bar were great but all the others we went to only allow a kid's meal on all inclusive, which in some was a tiny portion and not enough for an 11 year old. They should be allowed a smaller main or something rather than food for 5 year olds.

My family and I stayed at the HRH for 9 nights and we had a great time. Everything was excellent. We stayed in one of the Water Villas which was immaculately clean and well maintained. The whole resort was very well spaced out with a large swimming pool which was very popular for all of us especially for our son. Food was was great, breakfast had a wide selection to choose from each day and cannot complain. There were a wide selection of restaurants which we tried a few of them, cannot complain! The HRH always had activities going on which would keep all guests entertained, this was a plus and we could see a lot of effort is put into keeping guests happy by the staff. General housekeeping was excellent, staff very friendly and helpful all the time. A special thank you to Alpha and Charlie at reception, Azhar and Chaya who worked very hard in the restaurants and always at hand to help, Mo at the Hard Rock Cafe shop who had great customer service and always smiling. Last but not least, a big thank you as well to Mufyd, always made us feel welcomed and took time out to talk to us on a regular basis. Thank you very HRH, we hope and want to visit again soon. 😊

We returned for a 2nd trip here in 2022 as we enjoyed our first trip in 2021. The property is beautiful as you would expect in the Maldives. The staff is young and enthusiastic , they treat you as valued guests and represent the Hard Rock brand. The over water villa was spectacular again. It makes you feel you are in paradise. It's great to be able to walk the boardwalk and have your choice of 7 restaurants in Crossroads.

My experience at this resort was beautiful. On arrival I was greeted by friendly staff and a birthday cake then driven by buggy to my villa. The villa was immaculate and kept clean and tidy with everything restocked fully everyday. They provide you with bikes to ride around the island at your own leisure. We dined at every restaurant and the food was always well prepared and service was very good. Special mention for the pool and beach bar staff especially 'Ranga' who couldn't do enough for us throughout our 9 night stay. Overall our stay was good value for money and we had no problems or complaints whatsoever. I'd recommend this resort... Thank you Hard Rock Hotel Maldives, hopefully we return one day!

The resort concept and facilities are good. Had some good time at SAI, Pool bar, sea sport centre, Hard Rock Cafe…. Food and services are quite often substandard for a five star and much less than similarly priced Maldives resort. Worst is the front desk and billing.. I still don’t have my detailed bill sent to me, so I do not know if I have been over-charged and my deposit not returned. I sent email to reservation and no one bother to reply. … if this continue on, I am going to rate this hotel as zero.,, cannot even accomplish the basic.
