The resort is not ready for people

The line of residents in line to complain about their room was very long. The Hotel is not ready for people, wait atleast six months before trying. I arrived Sunday @ 5:15 PM to be told my room was not ready, an hour and 15 minutes later I was finally shown to my room. My wife went into the shower and when she came out the entire bathroom was flooded with brown meerky water. They sent a repair man who said the water was coming from inside the wall and he could not fix it. So after two complaints I was "upgraded" to a concierge room. The room was exactly the same as mine only it was on the first floor and had no view. I was then given a slip to sign for an additional bill to my room of $419 to my weeks stay. I said no and was returned to the front desk to be told that was my only option until the next day. So we waited until the next day and were shown another room Which I accepted, I was again presented with an upgrade charge I refused to sign. So I was told I would be moved for free The women told me the bellman would be in my room within 15 minutes to help us move. Well almost two hours later and after four phone calls I finally got a bell men but missed a whole afternoon I should have been on the beach. The rooms all have liquor dispensers in the room The issue is it is of such poor quality it was not for human consumption so for the first time in my life at an all inclusive resort I went to the gift and paid $80.00 for a basic bottle of rum and vodka so my wife and I could have a drink in the room. Finally it should be noted that of the five elevators I tried to use only one worked and it was not in my building, where we were on the forth floor. As to the lobster dinner on the beach it was never served on the Beach every day I was there I was tokd by someone that it was erved inside the Isla restaurant as the beach was too windy When my turn came on Saturday I was told the same Finally the employees were wonderfull they could not do enough for you and if they did not understand your request (english to spanish ) They would find a fellow employees who spoke better english to make sure you got what you wanted. The food was wonderfull in all but the Brasillan steak house (Several people complained about ther food) In the end they are not ready for guest at this time and I would say they ARE SIX MONTHS TO A YEAR OFF

Fantastic vacation

This was one of the nicest resorts we've been to and we've really travelled! We took our 26 year old daughter and boyfriend (xmas gift!) and we ALL loved it! There was something for all of us. So many pools to choose from (wish one was heated!) The ocean was gorgeous but very rough. We had fun swimming in the smal"pools" the sand bar created. The staff were SO FRIENDLY...eager to please. Food was very good, nicely varied and even though you can't make a reservation we never had much of a wait for any of them.The bar tenders were fantastic ...great service! We really loved the golf and tours we took. The ONLY hastle was booking the tours as the hotel computer system is SO SLOW. Nothing the people at the tour desk could do about it. They were frustrated too. Don't forget to look at the "activities sheet" they give you at check in. There are lots of fun things to do every day. The SPA was amazing! Our transfers through Cheap Caribbean were right on time and in new vans...very nicely done. We all would go back again!

Pros and cons. The Hard Rock is a very big and beautiful resort. There are golf carts that will take you around the resort but we decided to walk and take everything in. Well worth the walk. There are 15? pools which was nice, if we were in the mood for quite or entertaining there are numerous choices. Yes some of the food is different so go open minded and try some. Ive read that people say there's a language barrier problem. Okay lets think about this, how much english do they know, little, did I get what I needed everytime I asked, yes! The workers will bend aver backwards to get you whatever you need. If your worried about "the language barrier" take a Spanish class before you go. Our room was the most amazing room I've ever been in(we travel 6-10 times a year). The only thing that I didn't like was there was no entertainment outside at night. We went to the Dreams in Cancun in April and they had something outside everyday and night. I think they do this thou to push people into the casino. We loved the casino!

Hard Rock Hotel Stay

We just came back from a stay 4/10/11 - 4/15/11 and everything was wonderful. We stayed in a concierge level room and when we arrived and they opened the door I was amazed. The room had a living room, dining room, one and a half baths, a sitting area in the bedroom by the jacuzzi and a hugh outdoor terrace. The room was clean and the maid service was excellent. The only complaint I have is that we didn't have an ocean view but we had a wonderful pool view of the quiet pool Since the place is so large the concierge level rooms are closer to the lobby area where the restaurants, spa, and casino are located. The service was great. When I called from the room for something they always checked to make sure it was received. The morning I ordered room service for breakfast they said it would be 45 min to one hour and they called at 45 min and said he was on his way. The bartenders at the lobby bar were fun and very attentive. Same for the cocktail waitresses at the casino. They never let you sit for long without asking if you needed a drink. The spa was amazing. I had a hot stone massage and a facial which were wonderful. If you do go make sure you get there 30-40 minutes early to enjoy the sauna, ice room, and all the relaxing pool baths. My advice however is that if they ask you to do a tour and offer you spa credit unless you like high pressure sales or want to buy vacation time there don't do the tour. We had a wonderful trip and Cheap Caribbean did a wonderful job.

Hotel Description

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana: Noble Beach Prize Winner - The Best Night Vibe

Tired of the small time? Head to the new Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana, recently named a 2013 AAA Four Diamond hotel. As the first all inclusive Hard Rock Hotel in the world, this resort does everything big, offering 13 restaurants and snack bars, seven bars and 15 pools! From the kids' water slides to the Vegas-style casino, this is a monument to glitz, glamour and rock 'n' roll royalty.

Located on Macao Beach, the resort's palm tree and palapa-dotted shore sets the stage for living out your own music video. Fifteen pools are your playground: a lazy river and family pool with twisting water slides for the kids, Sax pool for quiet downtime and the adult-only Eden for topless sunning. Don't worry about getting too hungry: from filet mignon at Toro to a hibachi-style show at Zen, there's enough to try something new for every meal! After dinner, seven bars keep the afterparty going, especially at the cool nightclub, Oro.

Need to burn off calories? Grab the shades, drop the kids at the Kid's Club, and head for Body Rock, the state-of-the-art fitness center. Too earth-bound? Reach for greater heights on the climbing wall, or just skip the exercise altogether and crack open the piggy bank because the 45,000-sq-ft, Vegas-style casino offers slots and table gaming. When you've had your fun, Rock Spa gets you ready for your close-up: relax in the hydrotherapy center, work out tension with a Shiatsu massage in any of the 35 private spa suites and end with a bracing, pore-closing experience in the ice room.

After you've partied and been pampered like a rock star, the Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana helps you sleep like one, too. Even the poshest tour bus can't compete with the stylish, spacious suites that feature a Jacuzzi for two, 24-hour room service and a flashy liquor dispenser. We recommend the Caribbean Suite with two double beds for the family, but couples or singles won't go wrong with the Hard Rock Concierge Level Suite's killer views and upgraded amenities.
