First of all, I love Mexico and travel there about 4-5 times per year. I was fortunate to be at the Hard Rock Cancun for their Grand Opening party in late October. Mostly favoring adult only properties, I was a little sceptical. However, this is a party place for adults. The decor was modern and chic and I really liked the fact that there was a main gathering bar in the lobby with pool tables - very easy to meet others.
The room was large, the beds were comfortable, and the bar and minibar were replenished daily. I also liked the Biosilk bath products, but I believe the Rock Spa products will be used. I've stayed at both Hard Rock Punta Cana and Vallarta, and they are similar in style. Great bathrooms.
Frieda restaurant by the pool was a great lunch time place. And surprisingly cool in the palapa and the food and service were outstanding. Asian restaurant was good too. We tried the Italian restaurant the last night, but perhaps because we were in a rush, it was just okay. Breakfast buffet was outstanding - anything you wanted you could find or they would make it for you. Room service was good too.
Pool and beach are tops. The entertainment staff and music at pool were good too. But I like upbeat dance music, so it was perfect for me.
I guess it also couldn't hurt that I had the pleasure of seeing both FloRida and The GooGoo Dolls in concert, all courtesy of the Hard Rock - they sure know how to throw a party! I felt like a true VIP. Not sure if it's a "family" hotel, I think it caters more to fun couples, singles and groups of friends.
Also to note, I am a travel agent, and actually have made plans to return the first week of February with friends - to return so quickly is not my norm, so I think that's saying something about this property. We enjoyed the good vibe.
