Overview

Stylish all-inclusive beachfront property in Nuevo Vallarta with personalized service and rock star amenities

The Look

Once the Vallarta Palace, Hard Rock gave the building a full makeover, adding contemporary decor and the brand’s signature rock & roll touches. A huge mosaic of Carlos Santana (created from hundreds of album covers) greets guests at check-in, while other pieces of musical memorabilia line the lobby walls. The rest of the hotel’s furnishings are sleek and contemporary, from the Union Jack–adorned Sun Bar to the clean lines of the dining area at Ciao to the romantic Frida restaurant.

Bed and Bath

Guestrooms have a modern, beach-inspired look, with artwork depicting musical instruments and quotes by famous musicians. Large sliding doors open up to private balconies, many with pool and ocean views. A double Jacuzzi fits snugly in the corner of each room, separated from the bathroom area by a partition (shower and toilet spaces are private, with a door dividing them from the rest of the room). All rooms come with LCD TVs and liquor dispensers tucked inside the cabinetry.

Beyond

You can sample six very different restaurants at the hotel. For casual dining, the Market buffet offers international cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and Pizzeto serves brick oven pizza. For a more upscale experience, the poolside Frida is the hotel’s traditional Mexican restaurant. Zen serves tasty Asian fare, while Ciao offers — surprise, surprise — Italian, and Ipanema is the hotel’s Brazilian grill. The three bars, including a swim-up bar in the pool, keep revelers occupied with nightly entertainment and plenty of mingling.

I was not wowed by this hotel. Check in was a mess. I called the day before and asked for early check in. The guy said that it would be fine. However, when we got there we were informed that our room wouldn’t be ready until 2:30 but we could eat, drink, and use the pool ect. That was fine. At 2:30 we came back and they said our room wouldn’t be ready until 3. We came back at 3 and our room still wasn’t ready. We didn’t get into our room until 4:15. So that sucked. The dinner in the specialty restaurants is good especially the Brazilian Steakhouse, but the buffet food isn’t great. The pool area is pretty small compared to other all inclusive resorts we have stayed in. There is only 1 swim up bar. The beach is nice but the water is murky and brownish. All the best beach seats are reserved for their premium members so be prepared to fight for a beach chair. Some of the employees where absolutely amazing and some sucked. So it is really hit or miss. The beauty shop has a beautiful view of the beach and ocean so I would definitely recommend getting your nails done there. It was in my opinion the best part. All and all... I wouldn’t go back. Oh, and if you buy a tour from them, they don’t pay for your shuttle to get to the excursion. We had no idea. And had to pay the driver $50 only after we had arrived at the excursion office...
