Hard Rock for family during spring break

We like the looks of Hard Rock and the resort credit options for excursions. But, are wondering is it still a good pick for a family resort during spring break in March? I would think most college students wouldn't be able to afford it. Kids are 14-17, looking for plenty of activities during the day at the beach & pools. Not really into the indoor teen clubs.

The Hard Rock has actually been a favorite among Spring Breakers and because their casino and night club are open to the public, that area of the complex is always quite crowded, especially during peak seasonal occupancy.

LuvToPlan, We added comments to You on another post about food quality at certain resorts, and we did mention that our daughter and son-in-law, both in their early 30's, just got back from the Hard Rock a couple of weeks ago, and they were not impressed by anything about the Hard Rock. They said it was too glitzy, the food was only mediocre, and very little shade at the beach, and pool. Would suggest you take at look at both, the Majestic Colonial, and the Majestic Elegance. Best Wishes, Leo & Sue

The Hard Rock is HUGE with tons of things to do, we have been twice in February and it was crowded with families and lots of young couples.

They try to keep families towards the outside buildings of 7 and 8 where the kids pool is and the lazy river. Buildings 1 and 2 are the quiet adult side and then they fill up the other 4 buildings as needed.

I enjoyed our time there but felt it uncomfortable seeing families with young kids there as many people were miss behaving.

But your kids are older and there will be lots for them to do and for you guys to do together.

I do know that most of March is not available as they book the resort for private concert events where there are no rules for conduct!

We are members and by mistake they allowed a small handful of members to book when they were hosting a crazy concert a couple of years ago, it was total drunken fest for 4 days for these concert goers. So because of this they have closed off dates for most of March so you should double check before you get your hopes up about the Hard Rock!
