Hard Rock Vallarta is amazing! Amazing staff! And round the clock entertainment. On Wednesday there was a pool party and heard a great rock cover band. Best food in Mexico I've had. Great beach, no rocks. Shout out to Toro on the entertainment crew!!!

Just can't beat the Hard Rock PV!!!!

This was our 9th trip to this resort! Pretty much think that says it all! The staff and service is amazing! The beach is beautiful! All the restaurants are good with plenty of food choices, the brick oven pizza is fantastic, and the snack bar and grill offer plenty of great lunch and snack options. I promise you will never be thirsty with all the cocktail, beer, and juice etc. options! The bartenders and drink runners work so hard, and are just the best! It is an older resort, but is very well maintained and clean! From the housekeeping to the people who clean the pools, trim the tropicals and foliage etc. they are constantly working and maintaining! I feel this resort has something for everyone, wether you are 2 or 92years old! The entertainment /activites staff is amazing, they go out of their way to make things fun for all! The Posh salon is great for mani's and pedi's, and the new Rock Spa is beautiful and I highly suggest getting a massage! Great staff in both! The foam party at the pool is a must! Sooo much fun! The fresh fish grilled at the beach party is just the best!! Even when the resort is at full capacity you will have no problem getting a chair on the beach or by the pool! Also, LOVE that you don't have to make reservations for dinner in advance! The service and attentiveness of the staff is stellar! Everyone works so hard to make sure each guest is happy and has everything they need and are having a great time! I do want to give a shout out and big thank you to just a few who made our trip extra special!! Juan at Ciao did a great job! Awesome service and great steak and lobster dinners!! Julio, Manuel,Zu,Adrian and Rosie who delivered our drinks to us for 10 days on the beach, thanks sooo much! You all work very hard and run all day!! Always with a big smile on your face! Juan at the Snack/Bar area, always friendly, helpful, and tending to everyone! Adrian with the activites at the beach, so friendly and helpful wether getting people going on a game of volleyball or renting out boogie boards etc. Hard working and fun! Alma the hostess at breakfast every morning greeted us with her beautiful smile and got us seated. By the second day she remembered our names and room#! Diane, and Gilberto at breakfast every morning getting us our coffee, juice, champagne or anything we needed. Both so friendly, helpful and on task! Teresa at the front desk made check-out a breeze! (even though I didn't want to leave) Great job!! Great job to the whole team at the Hard Rock!! Can't wait to come back next year!

Definitely worth visiting

This is our first time here. Our room was clean and the king bed was very comfortable. Rosy is a wonderful server. She has an awesome attitude. Marti is another server who never let our drinks run dry. She is a hoot to have. Don't forget to tip all these hard working people. Guadeloupe at Ciao is excellent. He's funny and very attentive. Zen has great sushi. And Oscar at the membership desk is so down to earth and absolutely No pressure to join up. Lover this resort and will be back with the kids.

Fantastic Resort

This visit was our 3rd to Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta and our 4th to Vallarta overall. Each time we return, we are greeted by the same familiar and friendly favorites. Jesus at the pool is not only a doting waiter but a great guy. He greets us with his contagious smile and hugs each time we see him. And he remembers us from prior visits. The few days he was off work, we had Marti as our pool waitress. She was on the ball. For just meeting us, she memorized our drinks and instead of asking us if we wanted more, she would bring new drinks when she observed that we were low or out. This visit was different than last March as far as the people visiting the resort. The 1st 2 days there was a HUGE conference. Hard Rock did a great job of keeping their activities away from the general visitors. The only time it got a little crowded was if we went to breakfast at the same time. Once they left, this visit was much quieter than last March. The Pool entertainment team tried to get people to participate but it seemed few were interested. I was excited to see on social media that Vallarta had brought in water balloon fights and the foam party but they did not have it while we were there. The Fish Market was the best day event we attended. Nonetheless, my husband and I didn't go to party but to relax and enjoy. It was low key but did not disappoint. I have to say that the energy here is as only as high as the people who are visiting at the time. The ages ranged from 30 somethings, a few kids up to older adults. The food here is wonderful. We visited every restaurant except for Ipenema. The service in the morning with Irving and Neo was fabulous. The omelet station is always our "go to" in the morning and the ladies do a great job! Every restaurant was easy to get into, no wait, amazing service and delicious food. Room service was fast and tasty as well. We didn't upgrade our room this time but requested being away from the Sunbar. We were on the 2nd floor and had a great view of the pool by the Mexican restaurant and limited view of the ocean. But, it wasn't horrible. My only room complaint this trip was the noise of our neighbors. We could hear everything they talked about (and argued about), the entire trip. They had no respect for others as they loudly talked in the hallway and yelled at each other at all hours of the night and early morning. Although we were far from the Sunbar we could still hear the base late at night. And the last night of the conference, we had people in the hot tub outside our balcony until 5am. This is not entirely a Hard Rock issue but one of others being inconsiderate and unaware of their surroundings. Finally, we didn't plan very well for how chilly it got at night. We wanted to repeat Rhythms of the Night (which is a MUST when you visit Vallarta) but we didn't want to spend the money to be cold. So instead we walked the beautiful beach, enjoyed the pool and our waiters, napped on the beach in the afternoon and visited the new spa for a couples massage. The spa was AMAZING! I would highly recommend using resort credit for any of the services at the spa. The staff were wonderful and the massage was top notch. One downfall was its close proximity to the Sun Bar. Half way through our relaxing massage, Sun bar turned on their music for the day. The relaxing music was quickly drowned out by the sound of the booming base of the music coming from the Sunbar. One last piece of advice when going anytime soon is BUG SPRAY. In all the times that we have been to Mexico, we have not been bit my mosquitoes. Being from the midwest, this is something we are used to and had we known, we would have packed bug spray with our sunscreen! We weren't the only ones unprepared. We saw many visitors with welt like bug bites all over their bodies. We even saw the staff spraying the bushes and around the resort but those mosquitoes were determined! I would HIGHLY recommend Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta to anyone looking for great service, delicious food, a super clean resort with friendly service and beautiful scenery. We will return again soon!
