“Great Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

The hotel's modern and clean. Rock theme and music really engages you. Pool is gorgeous, pool bar is on the expensive side, but a great place to sit with a tropical drink, and to drink in the beautiful environs. Casino fun on the inside, fun outside too, shops, restaurants, outside bars, and a central outdoor stage with live music. Great side trip when we go to our condo in Florida.

Stayed July 2013, traveled as a couple

Make sure u wear slip resistant shoes in the lobby. Some spilled water caused me a nasty fall. Be specific about the bed you want at check ln. We were out in a 2 queen room for the first night and offered a resort credit for the issue and the beds were uncomfortable and there was a gap your pillows keeps falling through. Second room we moved to stunk of marijuana

This was our 2nd visit to the Hard Rock Casino Resort. We loved everything about this resort in 2008 except for the casino which was limited to poker and bingo style slots that didn't pay at all. Now that they have added several gaming options and changed over to the traditional slots we love the casino as well. The penny slots actually give you a fighting chance to survive on your gambling budget and were a lot of fun to play. I saw lots of people win good amounts of money and had we enjoyed several good payouts during our 4 day stay. Great variety of slots and good comps were very generous. The only thing I didn't like was that free play comps expire and because we don't live in Florida we lost out on over $200 in free play because it's loaded 3 days after you accumulate it. Something needs to be addressed here for out of state visitors that lose out in this one area.

Every single employee was friendly and accommodating. I liked that security checked our room key each and every time we got on the elevator to our room. There is a food option and price range for every budget and taste. The Blue Plate is an excellent breakfast restaurant priced cheaper than Vegas and serves superior food. I wish they had typical breakfast potatoes as the one's they serve did not suit our taste preferences. Perhaps they could add 2 choices but those I spoke to agreed with us. That was our only complaint. Full coffee pot served to your table with lot's of great options for breakfast. The Hard Rock Restaurant served great drinks and delicious food and had great customer service. Ate there 3 times as we truly enjoyed the music videos and the atmosphere. Best Caesar Salad around. Try the grilled honey mustard chicken sandwich.

The pool is a lagoon style with centre island restaurant and bar. Reasonably priced with great food and drinks. We felt like we were away on an island and enjoyed the pool for 2 or 3 hours each day. Great tunes set at the right volume. So relaxing.

Our room was a King Deluxe room with a huge shower with temperature control feature. Amazing. We were facing the pool so had a great relaxing view from our small balcony. Linens were superior quality as were the towels and bath supplies. Bed was comfy but not quite at the level offered at the Revel in AC or the Cosmopolitan in Vegas. Rooms were quiet and the large flatscreen tv offered good HD options.

Outside there was a great selection of shops and restaurants surrounding the pond and we enjoyed walking about this area each day. It wasn't quite busy enough but that could be because it was during the week and not on the weekend.

The casino wasn't nearly as smoky as I've read on some of these reviews. The only time it bothered me is if I had a smoker on each side of me but that only happened a couple of times. This place is meticulously kept and they continually clean all common areas and the public washrooms.

Overall this place was simply amazing as was the weather. We had a great time and are already looking to book our next trip to HR.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor room with separate spa shower facing the pool

Florida has so much to offer- but the Hard Rock is so unique- It has a fantastic gaming area-many many slots to play- Get a reward card and they give you great bonuses-There are nightclubs, many restaurants -kyosks-offering many things to buy-they have high end shops for people lucky enough to win to buy- the atmosphere is elecxtrifying-people are just happy to be there.-If you stay in the hotel- it is very personalized-you don't get on the elevater without a card-so you are secured.-The pool is SUPER-if you not on the beach- this is 2nd. best.There are many parking area-also valet--If you love to gamble-a great place- if you don't like to gamble-there is much to see and do

Beautiful pool area. The hotel room is very comforable and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. While the slots were cold, the pool was hot! Make your reservation and enjoy all that the hotel offers including exxcellent entertainment.

Our fifth time at that Hard Rock. Arrived early and only had to wait a bit for a room. Did request a room close to the elevator for my mother, however, we received room 667 - very end of the far hall. Not too happy with this. The room itself was perfect, everything in working order, modern, clean and comfortable. Great having security at the elevators, as there are lots of people walking around during the nighttime hours. Beach Club Bar was fair. Inconsistent pricing, slow service.
Pool area is beautiful well kept (though pool itself needs to be re-done). Towel service area was great along with the staff. Robert in the Lobby Bar is fantastic! Tried the new restaurant in the lobby area The Bol - it was fantastic. Checkin/checkout easy.
