TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
I seriously cannot fault this resort. The staff were welcoming and incredibly accomodating. Juan and Betze at the Poolside bar were amazing and always happy to serve. The staff in the main breakfast... Read more buffet were absolutely phenomenal! In my opinion food was fantastic each restaurant felt like an actual restaurant. The food was fantastic, the staff were friendly and the opening times were reasonable. One of the great things about this resort is the constant supply of food and drink whether you collect it yourself or order it to your room ( for free by the way ;-) ) there is always something to munch on! Concierge are great! You can call them for anything and they will be happy to assist you with your request however strange. As someone who doesn't like getting in the pool, I must say that the pool party was sooo much fun! the entertainers were top notch! Sleep wise, I slept absolutely fine. The beds were really comfortable. The rooms aren't that big but they are not cramped either. Book your spa treatments early! We booked and soon as we arrived and made full use of our resort credits. The treatments were nice and the staff were very professional. Thank you so much for all the great memories Hard Rock! Can't wait to go back. Read less

Last weekend we spend 3 nights at this resort. It is pretty new, so everything literally rocks. Its an all inclusive resort. And the food its actually really good.(but the desserts) they also have... Read more all this different activities all day long. I think its perfect for young people. (specially for the ones who want to get wasted) Not for honeymooners. Nor people to want to have a really relaxing time. The rooms are extremely loud!(we were at the 348)But the service is really good. Specially a bellboy named Dinky, he really helped us with everything and was very kind as well as the pizza lady. (which i must say they are awesome!) I cannot say the same for Emanuel a bartender at the main bar at night, he was really rude. But the rest were just amazing! We had a great time! just be very punctual at the check out, cuz we were 30mins late and they charge us late check out Read less
This was the best holiday I have ever had, if you like music you are in for a real treat. The service was second to none, staff could not do enough for you. Food was excellent with plenty of choice... Read more and restaurants to choose from. Rooms were kept spotless at all times and all the staff were so helpful and friendly. I would advise anyone to go here. It was a holiday I will never forget. Thank you so much to all the staff of the Hard Rock Hotel in Cancun for making this such a memerable holiday for me. Read less
Overall our stay at the Hard Rock was good. We were not exspecting to see all kids at the Hard Rock. Should have did my homework. It's a nice hotel if you want to do a family vacation. It was only... Read more two of us and we were not looking for a family vacation. Next time I will pick an all adult resort. Read less
