This resort is HUGE

We usually stay at smaller, adult-only resorts but decided to give Hard Rock a try primarily because of the on-site golf course. While it wasn't a bad vacation, it wasn't a great or memorable one either. I'll start with the positives - the golf course was convenient and my husband enjoyed his two rounds. We never had an issue getting into the restaurant of our choice. And being early risers who get up and go, we appreciated that housekeeping usually got to our room early in the day. There were plenty of lounge chairs at the pool and unlimited towels. I enjoyed my spa treatment, and the dune buggy ride was a lot of fun too, but it would have been nice if we had been told we would be stopping places that would give us the opportunity to shop and support the locals, we didn't have any cash with us and weren't prepared to buy anything. On the down side, we specifically chose a Sand King suite so we would be close to the beach and pools, paid more for that category of room, but we were placed in building 2 and discovered that all of the beach areas and pools near there are reserved for club members, so we had to walk a good distance to get to a pool we were allowed to use. Also, they were renovating the rooms on the first floor of building 2 so we had to live with construction noise and odors all day, every day. We met with our concierge on our first day and she went over the resort credits and how to use them, but she insisted that we only had $1500 worth of credit, even when I questioned her and said we were supposed to have $3000. Luckily when we booked our activities the gentleman at the activity desk knew what we were really entitled to. The concierge also told me the hotel was about 8 years old, which I thought was odd since I'd been seeing all kinds of advertisements for celebrating the 7th anniversary. Food was average, but that's what I expect from an all-inclusive so it wasn't a big deal. Our favorite meals were at Ciao and Pizzeto. Being a vegetarian, I appreciated that there were options for me everywhere. We did a lot of walking during our stay, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but there were parts of the resort we never got to experience due to the distance from our room. We took the shuttle once just so we could see the other side of the resort, but it wasn't really convenient to use regularly. You had to be careful when you were walking around the resort, and sometimes jump out of the way to avoid being run down by one of the shuttles, room service carts, or sales tours. And the cheap and uncomfortable wrist bands were a disappointment, if you have to use a wristband system you can at least make it something nicer than a tacky piece of plastic. This might be a good choice for families, especially if you are lucky enough to get a room closer to the activities you want to be near. But for us, next year we'll go back to something smaller and more intimate.

Great time

We had a great time at the hard rock. To sum it up: -good food (no reservations required and rarely had a wait) -good drinks (including top shelf liquor) -rooms were spacious and nice -great spa & gym -good entertainment and nightlife (plenty to do late into the night) -huge beach and lots of pools (rarely had a problem finding a lounge chair) -the resort was huge. I leave that up to you on if that is good or bad. The grounds were beautiful so it was nice to take a walk across the resort and get some exercise. Other times I was settled on the beach and forgot something in the room and wanted to go back real quick. Going from the beach to the room was not quick and cut into more beach time than I wanted. To accommodate the size of the resort they constantly had shuttles running.

Had a good time!

The staff is very friendly and always accommodating. The resort is very large but they do offer a tram service to get you where you want to go. Dining options are good, not great, with a lot of variety. There were a few elevators that were out of service during our stay. The rooms are comfortable, although they are starting to show some age. The Rock Spa experience was relaxing, but again, some of the facilities are starting to show their age. Overall we had a nice relaxing week.

What's to Love

Fifteen pools, some with themes, means everyone gets their fun. Kids love their pool with water slides, and adults have Eden for topless sunbathing in absolute freedom.


What We'd Change

With this many pools and restaurants, it's no wonder that walking from place to place can be time-consuming. Luckily, there's a shuttle that takes guests around the resort.

Hotel Description

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana: Noble Beach Prize Winner - The Best Night Vibe

Tired of the small time? Head to the new Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana, recently named a 2013 AAA Four Diamond hotel. As the first all inclusive Hard Rock Hotel in the world, this resort does everything big, offering 13 restaurants and snack bars, seven bars and 15 pools! From the kids' water slides to the Vegas-style casino, this is a monument to glitz, glamour and rock 'n' roll royalty.

Located on Macao Beach, the resort's palm tree and palapa-dotted shore sets the stage for living out your own music video. Fifteen pools are your playground: a lazy river and family pool with twisting water slides for the kids, Sax pool for quiet downtime and the adult-only Eden for topless sunning. Don't worry about getting too hungry: from filet mignon at Toro to a hibachi-style show at Zen, there's enough to try something new for every meal! After dinner, seven bars keep the afterparty going, especially at the cool nightclub, Oro.

Need to burn off calories? Grab the shades, drop the kids at the Kid's Club, and head for Body Rock, the state-of-the-art fitness center. Too earth-bound? Reach for greater heights on the climbing wall, or just skip the exercise altogether and crack open the piggy bank because the 45,000-sq-ft, Vegas-style casino offers slots and table gaming. When you've had your fun, Rock Spa gets you ready for your close-up: relax in the hydrotherapy center, work out tension with a Shiatsu massage in any of the 35 private spa suites and end with a bracing, pore-closing experience in the ice room.

After you've partied and been pampered like a rock star, the Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana helps you sleep like one, too. Even the poshest tour bus can't compete with the stylish, spacious suites that feature a Jacuzzi for two, 24-hour room service and a flashy liquor dispenser. We recommend the Caribbean Suite with two double beds for the family, but couples or singles won't go wrong with the Hard Rock Concierge Level Suite's killer views and upgraded amenities.
