This Hard Rock Hotel lures travelers with the promise of all the luxurious trappings indicative of its brand. Located in Nuevo Vallarta in Riviera Nayarit – just an 8-mile drive northwest of Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport – this all-inclusive Hard Rock outpost invites guests to bed down like a rock star in one of its stylish guest rooms, which are decorated in bold colors and feature LCD televisions, wine and liquor dispensers, marble bathrooms and hydro spa tubs. Stroll through the resort's rock 'n' roll memorabilia-lined hallways and you'll find six restaurants, which past patrons describe as excellent. For an extra dose of relaxation, book a massage at the Rock Spa. Venture outside to take a dip in the two swimming pools, lounge on the sands of Banderas Bay or embark on a snorkeling, parasailing or golf excursion (all of which can be arranged through the hotel). When the sun goes down, the Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta offers five bars and lounges, plus an outdoor ampitheater with live shows, concerts and rollicking parties to keep you entertained all night long.
