Top-notch resort!
Robert B, Nuevo Vallarta

Everything about the property was great. From the wait staff, to the dining choices, to the friendliness of everyone we dealt with. Location, rooms, pools, and beach were fantastic. Our only complaint is that my wife is nearly addicted to Diet Coke and Hard Rock only serves Pepsi. And you couldn't tell the difference between the taste of the Pepsi and the Diet Pepsi. We had to go off-property to get Coke products.

Good place great service

Destination Wedding at the Hard Rock Vallarta - April 2017
tmarks8, Kansas City, Missouri
Thu Apr 27 11:02:17 EDT 2017
The Wedding: Our experience here was absolutely wonderful! The staff at this resort is what makes this place stand out. They were so accommodating. Our wedding coordinator Citlalli was AMAZING!! My wife had zero stress throughout the process all thanks to Citlalli. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and Citlalli bent over backwards to make it happen. She is the best!! Anything we needed, we knew that we could count on her to come through for us. The ceremony and reception were beautiful. The food at the reception was exceptional and the wait staff did such a great job. Working with the photographers, George and JJ, was a fun, easy, and enjoyable experience. George went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. He truly cares about his work and it shows. I know my wife appreciated their work and we are so pleased with the final product. Our stay overall: The resort is clean and well-maintained. The location is conveniently 15-20 mins from the airport. We had a relatively large group (25 people) and they all had the nicest things to say about the staff at the Hard Rock. The people working at this hotel make it a special place to visit and really go above and beyond to ensure your trip is perfect. During the day, most of our group would hang at the pool. Marty and Hector were our usual servers and were awesome! They took great care of us throughout the week and were very attentive. As for the food, this is where I felt their service really shined. My wife has celiac disease and is highly allergic to gluten. It was such a relief to be able to eat knowing that the food was safe for her. We were so thankful for Norma, the Captain in the International Market. With such a sensitive allergy, it was a huge weight off our shoulders to know that my wife could eat and that Norma was going to take care of her. Anytime we went into the restaurant she came to our table, took my wife's special order and supervised as her meal was prepared in a separate kitchen. The service was truly the best we've ever had. Zen was our favorite restaurant and seemed to be the group favorite as well. The Captain, Reyes was absolutely amazing! We had such a phenomenal experience there that we went back three times for dinner. Reyes always made sure we were well taken care of and the wait staff was fantastic as well. The chef, Joya, did an excellent job. He would come out and say hello and make us a special dinner based on my wife's allergy. The food was delicious!! Two thumbs up for Joya!! Overall, our experience here was incredible. The spa, the service, the wedding, everything was just wonderful. We had a blast and are so happy we decided to do our wedding here at the Hard Rock Vallarta. If I had any complaint, it would be about the beach. This is hardly a knock on the Hard Rock Vallarta as the grounds were beautifully maintained. But the beaches aren't quite as pretty as some of the beaches you see on the Gulf side (white sand, turquoise water, etc.) But I feel I must stress how minor of a complaint this is - if you can even call it that. I loved our time here and cannot give the staff enough credit for the amazing job they do. If you're on the fence about Hard Rock Vallarta, don't be. They will not let you down!!

Overall, I would say this is a good resort. I have been to better and I have been to worse, so about 3.5-4 stars. The resort is clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We went with our 2 boys ages 10 & 12. They loved the resort and also had fun boogie boarding in the ocean. We used our resort credits to rent a cabana one day near the pool and that was awesome! The resort also had a seafood lunch one day on the beach which was amazing. The restaurants we liked best were the Brazilian and the Asian ones. We went over our kids' Spring Break and the resort does not have a typical Spring Break atmosphere, which is great. There were mostly families, destination wedding groups and couples in their 30s-60s. When we arrived it wasn't super busy but as the week went on, we could tell it was getting busier. We never really had trouble finding a chair by the pool, but we were more by the family area. The main pool area with the swim-up bar tended to fill up fast if you wanted a chair there. The mixed drinks were just ok. There is a cabana on the beach where you can check-out paddle boards, boogie boards, etc.. Our kids would borrow the boogie boards to go in the ocean which was awesome. The only problem is that the resort doesn't have a lot of them to borrow, and when a lot of kids are at the resort, they would be all checked out. We had to wait until someone returned one. The music around the pool is typical Hard Rock. It wasn't bad, just can be annoying to some. The entertainment at night is at 9:30pm and with coming from the East Coast or with time differences, it seemed late for our kids. They were exhausted by this time and couldn't stay awake for the show. The music is LOUD and can be heard throughout the resort. So don't expect to sleep until the show is over. We had a family suite which was lovely to have the extra room. The room itself was OK. The rooms can use a little updating and the AC system didn't seem to work properly. The humidity was always very high in the room and our clothes always felt damp. The bats come out at 7:30pm or at dusk every night. They seem to be living under the roof of the hotel. It was really cool to watch them come out and fly off.

TRIP 8 to this lovely, fun resort. Already planning TRIP 9

We were in the Presidential Suite and adjoining room on the amphitheater side. We were able to watch the shows from our outside deck. The staff were all so awesome and accommodating for our every need. But several need special attention because 1) They remembered my name 2) Cheerfully asked me if I needed anything 3) Always asked if I needed anything else 4) Checked on me constantly to see how I was doing. These people were: El Toro (Perfect in his position), Edgar, Manuel, Juan (What a lovely gentleman), Narsico (always had my drink ready when I finally made it to the swim up bar), Zu, Leno, Jil, Gonzo and Diane (sad that I never sat in her section). These people provided top service. You have an awesome training program. I would recommend coming here with your friends and/or family. Tons for everyone to do and plenty of food and drink for everyone. Make sure you try one of their oven baked pizzas.
