18 Nov Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta
One of our agents just returned from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. She stayed at the Hard Rock Puerto Vallarta, which is located about 20 minutes north of the airport. This family friendly, all-inclusive resort is beachfront and offers spectacular views of the Pacific Coast & Sierra Madre Mountains.
Our travel specialist went with a group of people and had an excellent time. The resort staff was extremely friendly and accommodating from the moment they stepped foot onto the property. Their rooms offered a breathtaking view of the beach, ocean, and the mountains. Each room had a French style balcony, a large Jacuzzi, liquor dispensers, fully stocked mini-fridge, and 24 hour room service. The resort also offered complimentary Wi-Fi and free phone calls back to the US.
The daily entertainment was great! They had activities going on at every hour, including: yoga, water aerobics, pool & beach volleyball, Pictionary, bingo, dance & Spanish lessons, and more. They had one pool that was for those looking to relax or read a book. The main pool had music and a lively swim up pool bar, serving drinks until 7:30 pm. This pool also had waterfalls and waterslides for people of all ages. The resort is situated on the beautiful beaches of Bahia de Banderas in the heart of Riviera Nayarit. The beach was amazing! They had beach huts that you could sit under with waiters serving drinks and food all day long!
The nightly entertainment was also fun! They had live bands and a DJ each night. There was an outdoor amphitheater near the beach with live shows. One night they had the game show “Minute to Win It”, with great prizes, including a $100 gift card to the jewelry shop!
The food at the resort was fabulous. During the day they had two buffet style restaurants, a burger and quesadilla grill, and a wood fired oven serving homemade pizza and nachos with fresh ingredients. If you needed a break from the sun, the room service menu was great. At night, the resort offered four a la carte restaurants. One of the favorites was Zen, which was an Asian restaurant. It offers the best sushi menu! There was also an Italian, Mexican, and Brazilian restaurant that had a large variety of options!
With 350 days of sunshine, this destination has perfect weather any time of year. Winter and spring are the prime tourist months making summer and autumn a great value for families, groups, and romantic getaways. This resort also offers beautiful complimentary weddings!
