Rejoice rock n’ roll lovers, we’ve found your perfect Caribbean resort. Formerly the Cancun Palace, this hotel has been given the Hard Rock upgrade and keeping with tradition contains all the rock memorabilia you would expect including a jacket worn by Elvis Presley. There is a fabulous, meandering lake-style pool which features gorgeous ocean views and two swim-up bars. There’s an array of dining options to choose from including local Mexican specialities and a Brazilian steakhouse, which you can then follow with a show at the on-site theatre. All rooms have been refurbished to include special rock star twists and paraphernalia adorning the walls, there’s a double Jacuzzi in the bedroom and either ocean or lagoon view to check out your adoring fans below. There are some special kids clubs catering for all ages of children, including the brand new Little Big Club for your little ones. There is an on going schedule of live concerts, celebrity appearances and other exciting onsite activities. But if you just want to soak up the Caribbean sunshine from your private balcony, or recharge poolside, that’s fine too. Whatever makes you feel like a rock star.

This was our Third time staying at Hard Rock Cancun, I went with my Husband, and my 4 kids, and as usual we were pleased with everything. We stayed for 8 nights. The entire staff was so welcoming... Read more , kind, and friendly. And with service like that it makes you want to be there forever. Everyone was so friendly but I have to give a particular staff a shoutout,Sergio Cedillo From the pool, was beyond amazing. He introduced himself to me & my family, and asked if we needed anything. He was so attentive with all of us. He even bought us drinks even though it wasn't his job too. And even on one of the days, the sun was so bright and, he noticed us complaining about the sun, and he put the umbrella up right away. He was always checking up on us, and was so friendly. I want to just say that because of people like Sergio, we keep coming back to Hard Rock a Cancun. His service was beyond exceptional and catered to our needs. I would for sure give his service 5 stars. Thanks to everyone at hard rock for this amazing experience, and we cannot wait to go back!! Read less

My family and I have done a lot of traveling over the years and have stayed in several all inclusive hotels. Cancun is, by far, our favourite winter destination due to the great weather, warm ocean... Read more and huge variety of activities. This time, however, we needed to just get away from our hectic schedule and do nothing. So for the first time ever, we went to a hotel and stayed on the property for the entire time. We had a blast! There are so many activities on site that you don't need to go anywhere. The entertainment is top of the line, and non-stop, the food is top quality and varied, the rooms are well appointed and comfortable and the staff is very friendly. The New Years Eve activities were a blast! Heaven on earth! Read less

Hard Rock Cancun is small but it is by far the most fun of any resort that I have been to. The staff will do or get you anything. The entertainment staff is rockin all the time. Hard Rock is at KM... Read more 14.5 so this is right in the middle of the Hotel zone. If you like Golf you will love Riviera Cancun, It is a Jack N. course, easy but at the simetime a real challange. Read less

My husband booked this hotel as a surprise trip away and it certainly didn't disappoint! The hotel was in a nice location away from the hustle and bustle of the main resort of Cancun but only a short... Read more distance on the bus - the buses are cheap and you never have to wait more than few minutes for one. The hotel rooms are well maintained and cleaned on a daily basis with the added bonus of a Jacuzzi in your bedroom! Even though people we spoke to said this resort is much smaller than other hotels they had stayed at in the area, there was a good selection of restaurants and bars to choose from. The beach was also beautifully maintained by the hotel and the sea was just perfect. The entertainment team were amazing and worked tirelessly to keep those that wanted a more active and happening holiday entertained. Although there was always something going on around the pool area ( which was beautiful too!!) you were never hassled into getting involved and quieter areas could be found at the other end of the pool or on the beach. What truly made this resort a fantastic place to stay was the wonderful staff. From the chambermaids, to the waiters, entertainment staff through to the management team everyone was so attentive and always greeted you with a smile on their faces and all seemed genuinely happy to be a part of the team! A special mention has to go to Jesus who worked so hard everyday serving us drinks around the pool area. Jesus greeted us every morning with a cheery smile and went that extra mile to ensure that our every need was catered for! We only stayed for a week as our children remained at home with their grandma but I would definitely like to return to this resort again with the children and stay for longer! I would highly recommend this resort to anyone! Read less
