“Amazing”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We have just got back from this fantastic hotel. We were treated like Rock Stars. We had a beach front platinum deluxe room. The view was fabulous. All the staff members were great with tons of smiles and wonderful personalities. We were always treated the same way whether we tipped or not. Our room was cleaned twice daily, and on time. We never had any problem requesting anything. If we asked for it, it was done. We loved each and every day of our stay.
The food was good whether at the buffet or the restaurants. The only restaurant we did not like was the Italian one. But this experience did not change our opinion about this hotel. We loved it a million and one time over. We will definitely go back in the future. We also would love to try the new one that will open in the spring in the Riviera Maya. Thank you to all the staff members for making our holiday a memorable one. We love you and will recommend you to all our friends. Cheers

Our all inclusive holiday was amazing. Upon our arrival to the hotel Samy the bellboy was very pleasant and extremely funny, he made us feel very welcomed when he provided us with warm hand towels and flowers. Ely at reception was very kind to have upgraded us to a diamond suite and made arrangements with ease. The concierge were always at hand should we have any requests or concerns; which as a result made us feel very secure with our accommodation. Every day the service was great and each member of staff catered to our every need without a fuss. Our room was cleaned on a daily basis to perfection - thank you Isabela. Tomas in the Frida Restaurant was a true character, funny and helpful - he made our time at the pool a great experience. We were given great advice when booking our tours by Ivan from the vacation planning team, and visited the beautiful Xel-ha, swam with dolphins and also partied at CocoBongo (thank you Gaspar from the CocoBongo promo team). After an amazing evening we booked ourselves in for a well deserved deep tissue massage at The Rock Spa; Liza and Angelica worked wonders, the whole environment was calm and very relaxing. The Brazilian food in Ipanema was delicious, Mike really entertained us whilst carving our choice meat. Rene and Fernando were incredibly polite whilst we enjoyed some Tepanyaki food and were always available to recommend the best dishes and cocktails! Ezequias, Alfonzo (Poncho), Francisco, Charley and Alejandro at The Market Restaurant made us feel truly special. Every time we entered the restaurant they gave us 5 star treatment, they were so welcoming, funny, very knowledgable, and extremely efficient. Thank you so much guys! It is because of the great staff working at Hard Rock Hotel that my sister and I share wonderful memories of our holiday in Mexico; we will definitely recommend Hard Rock Hotel Cancun to those looking to visit the country - and we certainly hope to return again; it's an experience we'll never forget!

This hotel was converted from Cancun Palace to HR. Departing from family vacationers and trying to appeal to a younger crowd. However, despite the aesthetic change, it still does not feel a true HR. Service was okay. Being a member of Palace Premier, guest services, concierge and vacation planners were confused on how to deal with our existing benefits. It was very frustrating as we got a ran around from our guest room amenities to using our member benefits. Food wise, restaurants were slow and food was over seasoned most of the time. The servers though are hard working and friendly. Management seem to be nowhere to be found as I have some issues from our airport transfers, guest room amenities, waiting for an hour our entrée, booking our activities to their so called "Rock Spa" that is more of a day spa. Stayed in a Rock Star Suite. Room on the website looks way much better than the room. Experienced some problems in the room itself.
Facility is okay. Entertainment at night is well planned. Staff is great. I know our issues are probably part of the transition and conversion so we might try it again and hopefully get a better experience next time.

After much discussion and research we chose Hard Rock Cancun for our Honeymoon. As a gay couple we were careful to select a resort where we would be comfortable with how the staff treated us. After traveling all over the world this was one of the most important trips we made. And the expensive investment in our wedding we looked forward to the Honeymoon. Furthermore, more importantly how we would fit in with the other guests. I am very pleased to say this trip was one of the best trips we have ever taken. Not only was the staff professional and welcoming we fit in well with the other guests. We are not a couple an openly affectionate couple. However, we did wear Marriage Equality and Pride Shirts throughout our trip. Many of the guests and staff complemented us. And of course the pink wristband shows you are Honeymooners.

Now about the resort we chose to book a Diamond Room and we were very happy with the accommodations. Not only was our room cleaned twice daily but the view was spectacular. Due to a short flight delay we were able to check in as soon as we got there. After check in we were immediately given instructions on the resort credit program. Which is an excellent program do not realize the value of this and complain about the program you’re foolish. The instructions were given from a group of individuals to the left of the front desk. Yes they wanted us to go to a group Breakfast and Tour. To talk about the time share program offered. Being that we were only staying 5 days and I am a Travel Agent. I quickly declined and walked away promptly. We wanted to get and get started.

We ate in all the restaurants with the exception of the Mexican Restaurant. The Italian Restaurant Ciao and the Asian restaurant Zen were top on our list. They were excellent. Zen is very hot and the Air Conditioning needs to be addressed. We would have eaten there again but it was just too warm. The only restaurant we were unhappy with was the Brazilian the food was dry. Maybe some people would be pleased but we didn’t find it enjoyable. However, we didn’t have a bad meal anywhere else. The food was plentiful even outside during the day. There are complaints about the buffet I see on here. I found this to be very nice and to serve as many people as the Hard Rock does. You have to use Buffet service. If your looking for table service in every meal. Then you need to find another all inclusive and I am not sure where you would go. We did eat at the buffet several times not getting the same thing twice. It was great the food was edible, tasty, enjoyable, and delicious.

I forgot my Blood Pressure Medicine and couldn’t tell you how helpful one of the Concierges was she was great. Consula (sp) she promptly helped me see the “in house” Doctor. Yes the hotel has an in house medical clinic. It was awesome and she helped me exchange money to make sure it was favorable for the purchase of my pills. In two hours I had my medicine and it was even after several calls she made to ensure I received the correct medicine.

Hard Rock your great you rock we will be back! And I will highly recommend your property. You made our special honeymoon so memorable. It will be special in our hearts.

I got a room with the Jacuzzi that didn't work with the phone that didn't work. When I asked to be switched there were no other rooms I originally asked for one bed and got two beds with a one person Jacuzzi and there were two of us so needless to say we could not get in the Jacuzzi. I was there for a wedding and the bride was paying for us to get our hair done, of course they billed me the charge to my room and I wasn't going to ask the bride after the fact to pay for it. The drinks were terrible and the food was like the nastiest cruise food. For spending almost 500 for a night I should have at least got a phone and jacuzzi that worked. I left my sweater in the room and tried to get it five minutes after check out and they would not open the room for me to get my sweater. Everyone morning at 8 housekeeping would be making tons of noise outside and came into our room after we put the sign on to please not come in. This was overall terrible place.

We were in Cancun from 6/30 - 7/7 with the family. We had a great time and met a lot of good people. The halls can be a bit noisy at night but you have to sacrifice a little bit to enjoy the party atmosphere of the Hard Rock.
The bartenders at the pool bar were awesome (Wilberth, Manny, David). Can't wait to go back!
