    Hard Rock PV

    Pros: The resort is older but kept immaculately clean. The view from our room was incredibly beautiful! The Food is 5* and all the staff from housekeeping to entertainment were wonderful, very pleasant and helpful. Special mention goes to "magic Edd" who went out of his way to be accommodating, and to all the entertainment staff who are very upbeat, hard workers. Now for the cons and the only reason I didn't give a 5* review. There is no sound proofing in the rooms so it was very loud until very late every night, we were on the 7th floor above the Sunbar..bring earplugs is my recommendation. And finally the romantic dinner on the beach....don't waste your money...there was nothing romantic about it, we were in a roped off area with 7 other tables close enough to hear the others conversations. Food was cold and over cooked ( waiters fault not kitchen staff I believe) There was one waitor for 7 tables...very disappointed with it as it was our anniversary dinner and I left the beach feeling very unhappy we wasted our time and money. Overall I recommend the hotel because of the incredible staff and delicious food!

    Great STAFF at Hard Rock Puerto Vallarta

    This resort is perfect. Pool, food, atmosphere, entertainment, beach, friendliness of staff. Love Ary and Danny at the front desk. The entertainment staff is excellent, especially Super Saul, Mimi, Aldair and Myrka. Leo at the bell hop is always eager to please and greet. Edgar at the Market and so many others I wish I could go back and spend another week. Maybe next year. So fun and yet relaxing. Drinks were excellent, Food was excellent. Activities were fun and varied. Awesome that the sea turtles were hatching the week we were there, and not just one or two, but 40 to 50 at a time. What a treat.
