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.

We are Legendary Hall of Fame members and returned to this resort for my husband's birthday dinner. Upon entering the hotel, Sandra & Liz greeted us with our favorite drink. Soon we hugged our long... Read more time friends, Sommelier Nelson, Cesar and even Mgr. Elias previously at another Hard Rock hotel and now here. We had reservations at ZEN and our waiter Luis made sure everyone crowded around to give George the best birthday ever. In all, he had 3 different birthday parties that night. We became members at this old Cancun Palace 7 years ago and these employees are truly "family". The service and sincerity can't be beat. We also got hugs from Luis and Daniel from Ciao, Damien from room service, Butler Carlos and Bar maids Claudia and Conchis. Our longest and dearest friend Carolina works in The Market. She made sure another "party" was held after the show in the evening. All lined up to hug George and sing both in English and Spanish. Going there is like "coming home". We will return for 2 weeks in September to celebrate my birthday as well as our 50th anniversary with our Hard Rock Family. Read less

As a premier member the hotel Failed in everyday needs of the guests. Never told how to use the music system in the rock star room. Never asked if we needed anything when we came out of the elevator... Read more . Just seems strange to have no VIP special access!! We had to wait to check out no VIP express line. Food good. Very much Good and Bad in My mind. Can't put recommend on this hotel. To many things they can't and will not fix, No Dresser Drawers in room Come on! Read less
