Hard Rock Hotel Cancun All-Inclusive Resort
ULTIMATE VACATIONS Description, Review & Photos of Hard Rock Hotel Cancun All-Inclusive Resort
The Hard Rock Hotel Cancun hotel is unlike any other all-inclusive resort on the famous Cancun strip. When you're greeted with a glass of champagne and have a musical backdrop of anything from Paul McCartney to the Scorpions during check-in, only steps from an authentic Led Zeppelin drum kit this can only be the Hard Rock Hotel All-Inclusive Collection brand. Welcome to the 12-story, 601 room Hard Rock Hotel Cancun, a luxury, fun, high-energy All-Inclusive resort right in the heart of Cancun.
This 12-story high rise allows for many outstanding views of both the ocean and the sunsets over the lagoon depending our the room type you choose. The Hard Rock brand is music and entertainment personified, and you will experience both at all turns at the Hard Rock Hotel Cancun. There's 24-hour room service, top shelf drinks, free Wi-Fi, and free calls back to the U.S. from your room. Plus four amazing winding pools with two swim-up bars, an on-site amphitheater and live entertainment, world-class shopping and much more.
If you've ever visited a Hard Rock restaurant imagine an entire hotel with memorabilia galore - over 200 pieces, and music continuously playing in all public areas. Check out our photo gallery with photos of John Lennon, Noel Redding's (Jimi Hendrix fame) bass guitar, a guitar from Oasis, drums from the late John Bonham (Led Zeppelin) right in the lobby, hand written lyrics of the appropriate Beer in Mexico, by Kenny Chesney, Paul McCartney's shirt, so on and so on.
Popular music accompanies you as you venture in public areas from restaurants to bars to pools. Mind you this is not background music but music you actually nod, bounce or toe tap to. Eclectic would be the term - Guns N' Roses', Beatles, Bush, Bon Jovi, Johnny Cash, Shakira, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young, Justin Timberlake, and much much more. Even the pillowcases are embroider with little guitars. And the entertainment (a hallmark of Hard Rock) is heads and shoulders more musical than any other all-inclusive resort. Live bands at the beach or pool during the afternoon, live music in the main lobby until 12:45 am, plus on-going video's from music legends constantly on monitors.
We think you get the point that music and entertainment are key elements of this experience. But don't assume for one minute that the hotel portion, or the all-inclusive aspect suffers - it doesn't. In fact it rises to the 5-star level. Why? Because this is the former Cancun Palace and all of its mind-blowing qualities and amenities are included.
For starters, every room comes with a double Jacuzzi and a view of either the ocean or lagoon; stocked complimentary mini-bar; a liquor dispenser with rum, vodka, tequila and whiskey; free Wi-Fi access; a balcony; flat screen LCD TV's with satellite, unlimited long distance phone calls back to the U.S. Of course you can upgrade to a suite complete with additional pampering amenities. Need more? You receive up to $1,800 in credits per room, based on the length of stay, which can be used toward, tours, spa treatments, romantic dinners on the beach, wine upgrades, weddings, and more. And with the exception of one buffet, all dinners are available with unlimited access in a la carte restaurants featuring delicious cuisine. Oh, and there's always 24-hour room service available. Check our our photo gallery for pic's of our room service and restaurant entrees.
Entertainment after the kids shows range from rock and country cover bands to American Idol-like karaoke contests.
Kids need not feel left out. Shows at the Amphitheater, the show venue, are geared for kids and feature characters such as Thomas & Friends, Barney, Bob the Builder and Angelina Ballerina. Little Big Club has interactive areas including Angelina Ballerina Dance Studio, with dance classes; and a Thomas & Friends play station with a Thomas train station.
Dining at the Hard Rock Hotel Cancun is exceptional with five distinctly different restaurants, four of which are a la carte. Read our section below on Food / Drink. The pool is large and freestyle with swim-up bars and three Jacuzzi's. A beautiful white sand beach lies directly beyond the pool and has ample lounge chairs and plenty of palapas for shade.
The Rock Spa has both individual and couples treatment rooms that sooth with a large variety of treatments. And for those of us who include workouts in our vacation the Body Rock Fitness Center has outstanding equipment and yoga classes.
If meeting facilities are required you are in luck The Hard Rock Hotel Cancun has a convention center that features a ballroom comprising 12,378 square feet and an additional meeting space of 4,030 square feet with the option of 10 breakout rooms. These are well-equipped, well-designed rooms - we can attest.
Needless to say, ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION highly recommends the Hard Rock Hotel Cancun. Honeymooners will love the hipness, nightlife and room amenities. Families will appreciate the quality activities for all age groups. And couples looking for a Destination Wedding resort should really consider this one. Not only will they be treated to a highly acclaimed Colin Cowie wedding, but their guests of all ages will dig the accommodations, cuisine and entertainment.
