With a lively bar scene, excellent nightly entertainment, and rooms with rock-inspired décor and liquor dispensers, the Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta is a great option for anyone looking for a party, especially singles and younger couples. It caters to families, though, too, with features like The Hard Rock Roxicity Kids Club (ages 4-12) and The Cavern Club (a modern lounge with air hockey, XBox, billiards, arcade games, and board games). The rooms and room balconies are a little on the small side; but the resort boasts outstanding food for an all-inclusive with a variety of restaurant and cuisine options, yoga and aqua aerobics classes throughout the week, well-above-average service at the Rock Spa, a solid fitness center, and a good stretch of beachfront with a respectable beach volleyball court. Rooms come with jacuzzis, Rock Spa bath amenities, 24-hour room service, purified water, coffee makers, turndown service available upon request, bathrobes and slippers, and even a selection of guitars to borrow upon request (pending availability). Activities include dance classes, Spanish lessons, stretching classes, bicycle tours, basketball, deep sea fishing, scuba diving, and nightly shows and theme parties. Additional water sports such as snorkeling and parasailing can be arranged through the hotel, and others are available within walking distance.
Complimentary COVID-19 antigen tests are available on-site for guests traveling back to the United States (up to two tests per room, minimum three-night stay required). Additional tests can be purchased for $50 USD each.
