I was expecting paradise and I wasn’t disappointed. My room was a gold beach villa and it was stunning inside, leading straight to a private sunbathing area onto the beach. The views are breath taking. Food is amazing, even with a picky eater, we have never had a bad meal. Minimal walk to the marina and other restaurants over the walk way but plenty of buggys to offer a lift if you don’t want to walk in the heat. Staff are all amazing and can’t do enough for you but massive shout out to Shuau for providing top service and keeping the drinks coming around the pool and beach area. He’s a credit to the hotel. Also, just to mention Carlton. I know everybody already has, but I have never been on holiday where somebody has been so attentive and eager to ensure I was having the best time. Just to note as well- there’s a mini mart and pharmacy in the marina area in case they are needed. The pharmacist is on hand to sort any minor ailments which is ideal when abroad. Thank you Hard Rock- it’s been amazing!

Hotel's Favorite
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

We chose the hotel as we loved the choice of restaurants and, obviously because it’s paradise. We are not disappointed… Food is amazing. We’re in a gold beach villa and it’s stunning with a generous bathroom / dressing area and the room leads straight onto the beach Service from the bar staff is amazing. Remembers your drink straight away and can’t do enough for you. And just to mention, I know everybody already has, but special thanks to Carlton. He goes out of his way to ensure that you’re having the time of your life. Really goes above and beyond. Never seen another person make as much effort to make sure you’re happy, and I have travelled all over the world. Thank you to all the staff. Highly recommend.

I cannot fault a thing ! From the moment we were through passport control we were looked after by the staff. Laamey did our temperature checks and then told us we could ditch our masks for the whole stay on the Island, which was very welcoming. Accommodation - We stayed in the over water Villas which were just incredible. Spotlessly clean. Very spacious and the bathrooms were gorgeous. Lovely to lie in the bath looking out on to the ocean. The rooms were constantly stocked with fresh water and cleaned twice a day. We were able to check in early and even kept our villa for a late checkout. Food- First Class! We chose the all inclusive option, and unlike other all inclusive resorts the Lunches and dinners were all freshly cooked to order with table service. Breakfast was buffet service but you only had to ask and the staff would cook you anything you wanted if it wasn't already on offer. The choice of food was amazing. We did try a few restaurants over at the Marina which were fantastic, but we loved the atmosphere and entertainment at Hard Rock, we mainly ate in either Sessions or the Elephant and Butterly. Staff - Saving the best to last! There isn't any way I can put into words just how amazing the staff are. They actually made the holiday for us. I would love to be able to name them all but here are a few that really went that extra mile. Thithoo ( or Rhianna! ) Thank you for looking after us so well in the elephant and butterfly. You got to know our drinks order after day 2 and never got it wrong! Thol, Ayaan and Rishi. You were amazing hosts and kept us fuelled with your amazing coffees in the morning .... and Wine at lunchtime! Javi What a guy! Thank you for all the Singapore Slings. I still can't believe I didn't know who 5SOS were! ( 5 seconds of summer, in case anyone was wondering!) And last but by no means least: Carlton - We have never met such an attentive manager. I still don't know how you do it, but you knew everyones name by day 2! You treated everyone with the same respect and looked after us all. Nothing was ever too much trouble and to say you went the extra mile would be an understatement. Thank you for making our holiday such an amazing experience. If anyone is thinking of booking the Hard Rock, my advice is Do It! you will not be disappointed. It ticks all the boxes. Its relaxing but at the same time there is plenty to do if you wish to. Everyone is made to feel special and nothing is too much trouble

We had a brilliant holiday at the Hard Rock Hotel. All of the staff were amazing especially Carlton who is a brilliant host. The breakfast was great with lots of choice and all of the restaurants catered very well for my one year old who has multiple food allergies. Daughter got a fever when we were there but the doctor came straight over to see us and provided us with complimentary medicine for her. He was fantastic! The activity schedule for children was great. Such a good variety of restaurants which are all very reasonably priced. We would love to come back one day !
