Hard Rock Hotel vs Majestic Colonial

Family of 4 (2 adults, one college, one High school). We stayed at the Colonial with a group of 3 families about 3 years ago and had a very nice time. Was good, not fancy but we had a very nice time. Now have a chance to travel in June or August(due to kids school scheduled) and it looks like the Hard Rock is almost $2000 more for the same 10 day vacation but they give you $2000 in RESPORT CREDIT? Not sure what resort credit is and what can it be used for. Need honest opinion if Hard Rock worth the extra monies? Any and all views welcome. Thank you

Friends of mine stated the Hard Rock was too commercial.

I'm not sure though of the other location

Hey there RECEARCH, we are pleased to read you're planning to visit us! The resort credits can be used on a number of things such as golfing, spa, the hair salon, excursions and tours, rock shots (photo shoot/session), the Resort Credit Store among many other things keeping in mind that there is a 20% service fee on the credit you spend. :o) let us know if you have any other questions.

So you guys give a resort credit, then you charge them 20% TO USE THE CREDIT.

How is anyone ok with this?

No, Joseph D, the Resort Credits are given but it is up to the guest if they want to use them. This is for them to pay for the services rendered but it doesn't include the service fee. For example if something is $100.00 then you'll pay with the credits and be charged a 20% service fee; for more information feel free to visit the following link: hardrockhotelpuntacana.com/resortdisclaimer.… :o) hope this helps

Why are they charged a service fee?

Thats what I am not understanding.

If they are given promotional points , but there is a additional cost, wheres the benefit?

I went to Hard Rock last year and LOVED it! I will go back for sure. It is a massive resort and beautiful! Great place if you like to gamble, first rate casino. Tons to do here. Punta Cana is not a great city to explore so you may be confined to the resort, but that is not a bad thing. I wrote a detailed review if it helps. you can click on my profile to read it.

Punta Cana is most certainly NOT a city and you are in no way CONFINED to your resort. Those are both inaccurate statements.

For us Hard Rock is too American. We go to the Caribbean for a Caribbean vacation. But that is our choice. many others go and love it.

We personally love the Colonial.

"Punta Cana is not a great city to explore so you may be confined to the resort, but that is not a bad thing."

Huh??? I guess I must be bored out of my mind living here! Good shopping, nature parks, 14 golf courses, 50 quality restaurants and bars...hideaways...then again...you can bury your head in the all inclusive for a week and really never experience what this country is.
