The evening entertainment was spectacular. Everyone worked so hard to make our stay enjoyable. If you did not find the food to your liking ,sorry bud ,you have a problem! There...

My fiancée and I recently ended our week long stay at Hard Rock Vallarta! It was our second time staying at a Hard Rock (last year we went to the one in Punta Cana and 5 days just wasn't enough!) This resort was much smaller, which was better because everything was right there. We had a ocean view deluxe room...

My room had an ocean view and was spotless, the housekeeping was really top notch. The people who work there are what really make the place, they are all so friendly and top notch at their jobs.

The Hard Rock resort was fantastic. The all-inclusive feature coupled with 4 restaurants, several bars (including a swim-up bar!) was just outstanding. No worries about how much the meals were costing, no worries about running up a bar tab just made our vacation so carefree and relaxing. I would have given this 5 stars: 1. If they had played more...

What an amazing trip. Excellent food, rooms, and especially the hospitality. The only problem we encountered was going into Puerto Vallarta and having dinner. The meal was good, but to return home to find that they stole the Visa card number off one of our travelers was very disheartening to say the least. To have several charges placed on their...

Just got back from a 2 week stay at this resort. Our previous visit was when it was still the Vallarta Palace. There have been a number of positive changes including a brand new spa. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special. Nacho, Julian and Gerardo looked after our every need in a friendly and efficient...

From the beginning, when Carey Driscoll & Beach Bum Vacation helped us book this trip, I had a feeling it would be epic. This travel service combined with the resort definitely met my expectations! A very stylized resort, with extremely attentive staff and service, and any and all amenities you could need. I traveled with my two children of 7...
