Hard Rock Vallarta Questions...

We are headed there in September, and was wondering if someone could answer a few questions:

Does city bus take you to Bucerias?

How far from airport?

Do you have to upgrade to Concierge to get the full balcony?

Do they have a Concierge section on beach or pool area?

Thanks so much!!!

Yes you can take the bus to Bucerias.

20-25 minutes from the airport.

You do have to upgrade to Concierge to get the full balcony.

But not all Concierge have full balcony. No special pool, beach areas anymore, only for VIP members.

Thank you... that is what I had heard. So, it probably would be kind of foolish to gamble on upgrading upfront just to get a full balcony... That is really the only thing I would do if for, and might not get one anyways. Think I will just take my chances and try to upgrade when I get there.

Hard Rock no longer allows you to upgrade rooms using Resort Credits. If you want a full balcony, I would wait until I got there, make sure they have a balcony room available and then pay the difference. MHO

Just trying to clarify. Are you saying that if I am not a member, there is no way to book a room with a balcony in advance?

Actually, I think they are saying that even if you are a member, you can't... At least that's the way I understood it. I am a member, and am pretty ticked that it works that way!! We love our balcony when we are on vacation!

back when we stayed there in 2011 when it was Vallarta Palace, I believe concierge rooms had some more privileges such as special room service menu, pillow menu, etc. Not sure about now...

Yes, they still do have some extra's... Special room service menu (but you can ask for whatever you want from any room level), special coffee pot, pillow menu, aromatherapy, special dinner, keepsake bag and 20 minute massage.
