    What a colorful, wonderful experience with friends

    We spent 2 wonderful weeks at Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta with friends, new and old, and had an amazing time. We had quite a wait at the airport, but as soon as we got out, our transportation was waiting for us! We had a lovely room with a great view and welcome chocolates. Our room was maintained so well the whole time, complete with lots of towel art. All of the staff at this resort is amazing--they will do anything to help you. Our Assistant Team of Gerardo, Uri, Miguel and Alan were very helpful with bali beds, dinner arrangements and shows--anything you want! We loved our evenings at the Sun Bar patio watching the sun set and after dinner for drinks...Samuel, Veronica and a couple of others were fabulous! We had many wonderful breakfasts at Ciao with such wonderful views of the beach and service was always good and it was great to see Guadalupe there again. We also had wonderful dinners there--a special birthday dinner for my husband and a couple of other lovely dinners, thanks to Gilberto, Julian and the Captain Juan. We had a fantastic farewell dinner with our friends on the beach outside of Ciao--delicious food by Chef Luca. We also enjoyed dinners at Zen and the best Mexican coffee presentation by Kevin. The members' Cocktail parties were great-good food, entertainment and sunsets. Ipanema had a great selection of grilled meats--so tasty--Marcel was very helpful there. We were lucky enough to be at HRHV while the native turtles were hatching--what a fun experience to witness the little turtles making their way to the ocean--amazing. The staff all went out of their way for Halloween--dressing up and getting into the holiday--carved pumpkins, special foods all color coordinated and special. The highlight of this visit was being able to participate in Dia de Muertos--a very special holiday to celebrate the departed loved ones. Our vacation planner, Nestor was very helpful in guiding us as where to go to celebrate. We went downtown and actually walked through a cemetery where families were gathering and celebrating the lost loved ones lives--truly and moving and memorable experience. We also went to the Malecon and saw many alters and Catrinas. Some of our group dressed up and did makeup to go with the occasion. It was a phenomenal evening. Also on the resort, there are some cooking classes--one for Paella and the other that we did was for guacamole. The entertainment staff there are all very talented and have so much fun around the pool and shows--don't know all of their names but they sure help everyone have a great time. Magic Edd--the pool concierge was very helpful every day--no one had dirty sunglasses! There are so many more servers and attendants that all deserve praise! A special shout out to Erika and Franky in the beautiful spa--they are so kind and Erika gives a great massage.

    Great hotel

    The hotel was amazing. The staff were awesome. Angel helped my daughter when she got hurt on the beach. He took great care of her. And by the pool Juan was our server who always brought us drinks and a smile. He was amazing! No reservations at the restaurants was an added bonus plus we got to take a guitar to the room and the kids loved playing it. Thank You!

    We tried the hard rock for the first time at the beginning of December. The music was always on point, the entertainment staff were always entertaining and the staff were always friendly. We were lucky enough to sit in Juan’s section every day!! I’d walk down from my room and he’d be waiting with my drink of choice! So a huge thank you to Juan for the extra touch to our vacation!

    Relaxing time but wish with a little less volume.

    We had a lovely and relaxing time at this Hard Rock property. We have stayed at several others and while this was smaller, we found this to be very nice. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Food was good to great (Zen was great!). Saw another review mentioned the burgers near the pool and we loved them - actually too much!! Yum! Loved the pool and beach area for the Legendary premier level. You can not ask for a better view or sunset!! The sunset cruise was wonderful and while that night’s sunset was not the brightest we saw a ton of whales!! What an unexpected joy! We took the memorabilia tour with “Mr Vibeman” and it was excellent! So glad we did this and had not at other properties. We golfed at nearby Flamingos course and it was awesome!! Go early! We started at 7:40 and was just getting hot in the last hour - perfect! The shows were fun and the Sunbar’s balcony very nice! Decent bands. I do wish that there were options for the Bali beds/cabanas on the beach for non VIP/diamond level members. We reserved one which was near the pool as our only option and it was lovely and service superb! Zu and her team member (sorry! Cannot remember his name) were awesome! The almost constant barrage of very loud announcements/games being played/etc was a real disappointment. It really ruined this experience and wished we could have been by the beach. I know space is a limitation here but the noise volume was too much and actually creates stress. Our room had the most wonderful view over the pool and beach but again the amount of very loud announcements and games was overwhelming. Again know those in the pool may have enjoyed but it was not pleasant while trying to enjoy our balcony. Wish the volume of the taking could be taken down just a bit. Music was great though. Bell staff was awesome! Rafael and Oscar at Zen were the best. It is also a disappointment that Legendary has made a choice to remove the ability to use resort credit for upscale wine. We had that option always and learned on this trip that was removed. Large disappointment. Overall a good experience and would recommend but bring your earplugs if you want a little peace. When by the ocean it is muffled and wonderful! A beautiful beach.
