best island vaca yet!!

The place was a blast to stay at. Room/maid service was right one point. Food was excellent as well. Decent price but the quality made it well worth it. Only MAJOR disappointment is we were forced to sit through a 2 hr morning meeting on are fist full day there on them trying to sell us a time share which was not something I think was right. Other than that great stuff.

Beautiful

Went there on our honeymoon not really knowing what to expect. It blew our mind walking in and seeing all of the amenities you are surrounded by. The beautiful beach along with the MANY pools with bars all around was quite a treat. All of the staff was very friendly and accommodating. My only complaint would be the hotel credits as they really weren't all that they should of been cracked up to be. We ended up spending a hefty chuck of change for having 1800 in hotel credits (out of pocket 360). However, this was explained to us very clearly when we arrived and we new what to expect. But, be aware you won't get as much as you think as prices are extremely inflated. I would stay away from snorkeling with the sharks if you get any kind of sea sick as the ride is not very comfortable. When you do the massage make sure to go an hour early or allot for an hour after the massage to enjoy the spas amentities as they are AMAZING. Overall it was a wonderful trip and I do plan on going back.

Fun and Friendly Vacation

Really nice place, great staff. Using the hotel credits for activities was a little confusing at first, but made the proces you actually pay reasonable. Without the credits, they do seem a bit pricey. We did the moon rocker(ATV's), horseback riding, snorkeling and chill-out catamaran. Would have liked to hit the golf course, just not enough time. Not enough regular, good old rock & roll. The only complaint, would be the time share sales people constantly approaching you. From the time you leave the check in desk and every time you walk through the main lobby.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

When doing extra excursions, someone will be taking pictures/video. Don't be afraid to negotiate. They usually start at $40-$50. We were able to get the price down to $25.

Good Short-term Getaway

Selected resort due to former Palace affiliation & related perks: warm welcome/staff attention, jacuzzi in rm., free Wi-Fi, 24-hr. rm. service, resort credits, & restaurant seating w/o reservations. Didn't meet expectations. Rushed welcome/check-in. Jacuzzi dirty w/ dead bugs (didn't use). Rm. Wi-Fi did not work. Rm. service selections extremely limited & required lengthy delivery time. Resort credit service fee high & qualifying items had inflated costs. Resort lay-out poor w/ rms. away from beach/restaurants/main building - staff drove trolleys around, but often full, so not quick/easy to get around. Beach service poor. Rock Spa pool/facilities/massage & Eden Pool service wonderful. Hibachi & Mexican restaurants our fav. Room spacious. Comfy bed. Nice for a few days. Can't compare to the Mexican all-inclusive experience.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

Avoid peak times for going to beach/pools in AM & to restaurants at meal time if you want to catch trolley service (families w/ kids fill up seats w/ belongings). Often no wait to get a table for meals if you eat a bit later than the families. Order room service in advance, if possible, b/c wait may be 45+ min.

Good Hotel for couples who like to drink and have a relaxing beach/pool vacation

We chose this hotel as I had a conference scheduled here. We booked an extra night the day before the conference began. The room was spacious and nice and was kept tidy by housecleaning and was also revisited for turndown service. The enclosed glass shower was nice with two separate showerheads in different locations of the glass shower, so two people could shower without sharing the showerhead. The pools were huge and well maintained and we enjoyed the variety. Beach was beautiful but surf was rough. Unfortunately, people did smoke on the beach and there were traveling salespersons who alwarys approached beachgoers trying to sell artwork, cigars, etc...The beach was pleasantly not crowded even on the weeked (compared to beached in Long Island) Liqour was included except for certain wines (although we are a nondrinking family). Tipping at restaurants and housecleaning was not expected (all inclusive) but other services such as bellboy carrying luggage was expected (by the look and pause in our bell boys face). The staff was pleasant and very accommodating. We called to let them know our minibar was not stocked and our alarm clock was nonfunctional and they fixed this immediately. We were travelling with 2 children (4y/o and 7 y/o) and there were almost no organized activities for them minus the kids club which seems like a glorified babysitting service ( unable to verify as did not drop kids off). My 4 y/o did enjoy the Little Big Club concert with Bob the Builder, Barney and Thomas that occurs on Thursdays though. There were no watersports included such as snorkeling, scuba, windsurfing. These were available with additional charge and the resort actually sends customers via bus to another beach as their beachfront is too rough. They do not even provide boogie boards or sand toys (i.e. bucket and shovel) for the kids. They must be purchased. Wi Fi was free but extremely slow. We live near NYC where we have great restaurants so the food to us was average to fair. Seafood was not fresh tasting and food was similar to cruise ship food (overproduced with less quality compared to a typical restaurant you would pay for). We cannot comment on the golf or casino as we did not visit them. Mini golf also was not included. We also did not attend evening shows (Lady Antebellum was playing the day we left) as all the concerts were at 9:30P, way past the kiddies bedtimes. Notably, the concerts are included in the all inclusive price. All in all, if you are looking for a lazy beach vacation with beautiful pool and nice room and all you can drink alcohol, this is the place for you. If you desire more from a beach vacation such as learning a new watersport or outdoor activity, be warned that none of this is included in the "all inclusive" Hard Rock. The Hard Rock appears to be overpriced for this family's needs as we did not utilize the unlimited alcohol, or nightlife and probably would have done better at one of the other all inclusive resorts that include more organized activities(i.e watersports, archery, etc...)

Expected More, Paid More, got LESS!

The experience started out great. Most of the employees were on point. some of the best service I ever had came from Racquel Yosanda, Yimi and Hector! I got sick as a dog, high fever, chills, runs, and throw up and I didn't even drink the water! All restaurants were pretty good except the Italian one. For the resort to be all inclusive there were several areas that one could not go, or eat. There was also a bug and ant problem in our room and it took the staff over 3 hours to get it resolved. The Check out process was incredibly FRUSTRATING, especially if you used a discount travel company such as yours, make sure to give yourself plenty of time in this area. I will probably never stay at this hotel or use you to book travel as it was a headache.
