Of Gold And Treasure: Inside The Amazing Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta

By Brent Lambert (@FEELguide)

Mexico’s impressive history is synonymous with explorers’ tales of gold and treasure, and today Mexico is known best for treasures of a different kind. Within minutes of arriving at any one of Mexico’s gorgeous destinations it becomes instantly apparent that this country is home to the most precious wealth of all: a people so filled with truth, goodness and beauty that it makes it impossible to want to leave; and natural wonders so astonishing it’s often hard to take it all in. For visitors to Mexico, the places we choose to stay become the intersection of these two treasures. And one such intersection that deserves a special mention here is the amazingness known as the Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta.

Nestled on the sandy white beaches of northwestern Puerto Vallarta, the Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta is a treasure in and of itself. This 362-room resort is home to an endless source of rest, relaxation, rejuvenation, and rock star revelries for guest of all ages. The HRHV has no less than six restaurants to make your culinary dreams come true, two huge oceanside swimming pools, two outdoor hydro spa tubs, an impressive kids pool with waterslide, the Hard Rock Roxity Kids Club™, beach volleyball courts, the drool-worthy Rock Spa®, the Body Rock® fitness center, sauna and steam bath, Posh® beauty salon and nightly theme parties at the outdoor amphitheater. There’s even a golf course nearby, as well as ocean excursions, land adventures, sunset cruises, and a massive Sea Life Park.

For those who want to live the true life a rock star, the HRVH’s penthouse is all yours. The palatial space would make even Mick Jagger blush with awe, and the space has indeed been a temporary luxury suite for many superstars from across the globe. For guests who prefer to live their rock star dreams in the comfort of a board room, the HRVH has an enormous set of amenities for all things business. Countless businesses have flown in their teams for incredible stays at the HRVH. The hotel offers cutting-edge facilities and impeccable services for meeting planning, both in terms of amenities and pricing (all taxes and gratuities are included) in addition to nearly 24,132 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting and event space, including the recently unveiled Sanctuary Convention Center — the largest convention center ever built in Riviera Nayarit — an ideal location for a wide range of events from private gatherings, concerts and sporting events to elegant banquets, unforgettable weddings and distinguished meetings.

As with all Hard Rock hotels, the Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta boasts some musical treasures for its guests as well. “The elements of The Sound of Your Stay® create an unparalleled, authentic, hands-on experience, allowing guests to channel their inner rock star,” says the team at HRHV, “whether setting the mood with complimentary vinyl record or nailing power chords on a Fender guitar during an in-room jam session.” HRHV adds, “The WAX© program will serve as another experiential element to the brand’s unmatched music amenity program which includes picks, a guitar room service program allowing hotel guests to choose from 20 enticing Fender guitars, including Stratocasters, Telecasters and basses, to play during their stay.” And that’s not all. “Available now,” says HRHV, “guests will have the ability to check out one of ten Crosley ‘Keepsake’ Record Players and a Crosley Record Carrier Case during their stay from the front desk.” HRHV adds, “Inside the carrier will be a curated collection of quintessential vinyl records spanning from classic ‘must haves’ to records that will bring back a sense of nostalgia and discovery, as well as today’s emerging artists.”

For guests who enjoy day trips, there’s nothing better than a day spent in the old district known as the Zona Romantica. Here you can wander aimlessly through the district’s numerous winding streets that radiate an irresistible charm and mystery. What the French Quarter is to New Orleans, the Zona Romantica is to Puerto Vallarta. Don’t even think of visiting Puerto Vallarta without discovering it.

And further to the north is yet another must-do day trip experience — the sleepy and magical surf town of Sayulita. Here you will find a jaw-dropping array of astonishing artisan shops and bucolic local boutiques, and locals who will charm your soul unlike anywhere else in the world. A day spent in Sayulita is a gift to behold, and if you’re up for it you can even try your surfing and paddleboarding skills on the beach.

The Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta is one of Puerto Vallarta’s very best resorts — a fact made all the more apparent by the HRHV’s long list of accolades. Condé Nast Traveler readers rank the HRHV as one of the Top 100 Hotels in the World, Travel + Leisure ranks it as one of the Top 10 Resort Hotels in Mexico, the HRHV won Travel + Leisure’s World Best Award, and Elite Traveler includes the HRHV in their Top 101 Suites of the World list. Last but not least, in 2017 the HRHV won the Hard Rock Hotel of the Year Award.

How perfectly fitting is it then that a country known for its legendary history of explorers in search of gold, would be home to a legendary resort for explorers that’s earned so many golden trophies of its own.
