» Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta

    • The ride from the airport. 15 minutes and we were in the lobby.
    • The Bay of Banderas. A long, wide and soft beach. You can walk out 100 yards and the water is only up to your waist.
    • Since the resort faces west, sunsets are stunning!
    • The weather. It's the land of Ex-Pat's for a good reason.
    • The size, its large enough to have a lot of options but small enough to get around easily.

Why Go To: Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta

Go for the beach, but stay for the party.

This property is unique. At 348 rooms, it is the smallest of the All Inclusive Hard Rock Hotels.

But is has the nicest beach, an old-school Mexico charm, and the stunning Bay of Banderas to play in.

Formerly the Vallarta Palace, the resort has been updated and upgraded, and now also sports the Hard Rock colors & graphics, lots of cool memorabilia and a rock n’ roll attitude.

We love this place so much we had our office retreat here.

Fun Things To Do:

  • Walk on the wide, soft beach - for miles.
  • Go body boarding. Nice consistent waves that you can ride forever.
  • Take an evening cruise on a catamaran in the beautiful Bay of Banderas.
  • Go to town and check out Liz Taylor and Richard Burton's little hideaway.
  • Walk over to the Marina and watch the boats going in and out.
  • Get your swing on at 4 different Golf Courses. Use Sunscreen.....it is sunny in PV.
  • Be scuba certified while on vacation.
  • Get pampered like a Rock Star at the Rock Spa.
