My wife and I went to a destination wedding at the Hard Rock. This would have been a 5 except for the food which was average. The staff was great! They were eager to help and often went out of... Read more their way to make things easy. They waited on us at every turn. Our room was huge, clean with a very comfortable bed. The hot tub in our room made relaxing after a hard day at the beach and pool very easy. The beach was clean and again the staff circulated around us bringing us cold drinks and munchies/food. The staff also catered to all our needs during the wedding. It was right on the beach and couldn't have been better! Read less
We have not long returned from a 11 night break . I don't know where to start every part of of holiday was amazing. The food was awesome in every restaurant and there was so much choice. I am... Read more vegetarian and they were so accommodating. The pool area is so clean and with plenty of sun loungers. The rooms where better than the picture shows again the service was great. The smash bar was one of the friendliest bars we have been to with a special mention too Edgar Gutierrez , correA , Julian and giovanni. They made our holiday extra special always remember how you like your drink , and replacing quickly. They work so hard in the bar. We had that good a time we are looking at coming back next year just finding the right price. Read less

Read more After visiting the dreams Hotel Cancun (now closed for refurb)for the last 2 visits to Mexico we decided on the Hard Rock Hotel as it seemed to tick all the boxes for us ...we were not wrong !! On arrival with my wife and daughters aged 4 and 10 we were given cool towels by the concierge team and the ladies given bracelets which was a lovely touch. Check in was fast and easy we were shown to our family suite room which is 2 fabulous large rooms interconnecting The luggage arrived quickly and after unpacking we visited the pool area to see the day of the dead festivities which were truly fantastic Breakfast everyday we took in the market which was fantastic massive selection superb waiting staff who after one day knew what drinks we preferred as well as the kids . The kids club is just incredible our kids went 6 of the 7 days during the mornings until 1pm usually and did a massive array of crafts and fun activities Barney,Angelina Ballerina,Thomas the tank engine and Bob the builder are all around at various times the kids love it,the staff in the kids club are just amazing and plentiful I need to mention in particular Lily,Erika,Wendy,Karen,Jess,Jessie,Cynthia,and Michelle Our children were well looked after and loved the club with its own restaurant pool slides video games dress up rooms etc a big thankyou to you all xxxx The rooms were incredible very spacious and modern with great maid service our rooms were spotless everyday The pool is super great entertainment and bars the service excellent music and sound system top class games for those who took part lots of fun always like to see the Americans and Canadians giving it some !! Drinks quality is good if you are ask for premium spirits you get them Food is plentiful and the lunch service great pizzas salads nachos chilli etc all cooked fresh as well as great burgers and sausages cooked to order Restaurants we tried were the Chinese tepanyaki which is awesome ,the Brazilian is super with good meats and salads The Italian an wasn't as we expected they didn't do food for the children which we found strange when all the other restaurants do ! Bar great shops good the spa superb and resort credits are easy to use and a great bargain We had spa treatments a cabana etc all at a fraction of the price The oversell on the legendary membership would be my only complaint it's a bit much when you're away with your family and they are a bit annoying you have to just say no and stand your ground if not interested This is a top quality fun resort great location superb staff good food ,drinks,shows in a fabulous theatre and top top class staff We will definitely return next year without a doubt if we can get a good rate we love the hotel the kids love it and all in all great value a must happy happening hotel that screams holiday luxury and fun try it !!!!!

Hard Rock in Cancun is a vacation dream. All the facilities were spotless. Each and every staff member went out of their way to be helpful and courteous. We ate at 4 or 5 of the restaurants and all... Read more of the food, drinks and service were top notch. And who can complain about beautiful weather, water, sand, that comes with poolside food, drinks and entertainment. Late evenings were peaceful and tranquil if you like or party time in the resort bars if you like. Rooms with all the comforts of home. There were no downsides to this trip. Can't wait to go back!
