There are few places to experience sea, surf, sand, jungles, mountains, and rivers all in one general location. Puerto Vallarta is one of them! The close proximity of all these natural resources certainly qualifies Vallarta as one of the most complete and interesting destinations in all of Mexico. Add to this the friendliness the city is so famous for, the richness of the culinary offerings here, and the breadth of things to see and do, and you're looking at one of the best international vacations you can have!
This is home to the Hard Rock Hotel, a luxurious and elegant all-inclusive resort. Situated to the north of Puerto Vallarta in Nuevo Vallarta, a 25 minute drive from downtown and 15 minutes from the airport, the Hard Rock Hotel sits atop one of the longest and most beautiful stretches of beach along the entire Bay of Banderas. To the north the shoreline curves toward Punta de Mita and the Marietas Islands, to the south one can see the twinkling evening lights of downtown Vallarta, to the east the towering Sierra Madre Mountains, and to the west the unbroken gentle ripplings of the Bay stretching out and flowing into the Pacific.
With such splendid surroundings, it's only natural the all-inclusive beachfront Hard Rock Hotel would be equally impressive, and it is. The majority of the deluxe rooms offer a double Jacuzzi, and all rooms feature 24-hour room service and luxury bath amenities. Private balconies afford a spectacular beach and ocean view. Marble baths with separate tub and shower, turndown service, stocked mini bars, satellite TV, and bathrobes are provided.
Other facilities include 2 large swimming pools and a kiddie pool, outdoor Jacuzzis, fitness center, beach volleyball area, lit tennis court, basketball court, 6-hole pitch and put golf, Kid's club, beauty salon, spa treatment rooms, gift shop and spa boutique, and bicycles.
Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta is close to Paradise Village shopping center, and is a moderate drive from Vallarta's downtown. Activities at the hotel include day or night tennis, the fitness center, a great swimming beach, miniature golf, bicycle rentals, daily activities and nightly entertainment. Near the resort are snorkeling and diving (Los Arcos is a fabulous spot), golfing, fishing, sailing, jet skiing, parasailing, boating, and whale-watching. Downtown Vallarta showcases El Malecon (a seaside boardwalk), the flea market and shopping areas, restaurants, and much more!
Other services available outside the all-inclusive umbrella include baby-sitting, foreign currency exchange, gift shop, dry cleaning and laundry service, massages, travel agency & vacation planners, taxis, 24-hour on-call physician, wedding services, motorized water sports, and business services.
