Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana sits at the eastern edge of the Dominican Republic, where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic. The resort is within walking distance of the palm-lined sandy beach. With a variety of leisure options in the resort grounds, you may not feel the need to leave. However, if you fancy stretching your legs, downtown Punta Cana is a 17km drive.

Sleep Quality



Something has gone wrong here

Jun 2022 | TravelBuffCS

This was our 3rd visit to punta Cana and we were excited to have booked at Hard Rock. However the food quality was really below par at all the restaurants. We had our first dinner at Ciao and all the dishes we ordered including appetizers we could not eat them. The only place where we had edible food was at Zen. There is construction / renovation happening throughout the property. My biggest peeve is the distance and waiting for the trains to take us to the beach. We had with us in our family someone who could not walk far and we had to wait a long time to get a train. Service in general was very average. I know that hard rock is not that kind of average resort, but something has gone wrong there. I hope they find their lost mojo soon.

Just average

The resort was beautiful for scenery and had a lot to do. The entertainment wasn’t good. The food was terrible. Ciao had awful service. We had to get our own drinks. Lines were long. Bartenders didn’t care to make drinks when we arrived at bars. You can’t make reservations so you have to wait all of the time unless you attend early. Zen was good. The Brazilian steakhouse was okay, but the steak had tons of fat. Same with Toro. We really liked Bernie and Ricky (photographers). Swim up bars were pretty and enjoyable but had to make long wait times for drinks. I would recommend but I do think there are better resorts with better service.

Not a vacation, just additional stress

Jun 2022 | aleidarodrig

This was by far one of the worst experiences my family has had on a vacation. We were a part of 18 individuals and the resort was not accommodating. We requested to have our rooms situated together to assist in caring for my 85-year-old grandmother and instead we were on the other side of the building. the hotel transfer service was very unaccommodating as well. We were forced to pay an additional $400 USD for our party for a round-trip hotel transfer however when we made the reservation 6-months prior, the hotel transfer was included. Upon arrival, you are harassed the entire trip to sit for a one-and-a-half-hour presentation of their vacation club, this presentation turned into 4-hours of our vacation time until we signed under duress. Many times, some of the most common types of beverages like Pina Coladas and Mojitos were unavailable. Even though you commit at minimum an hour and a half of your time for the vacation services and promised a discount of 50-75% discount of services, that is not honored. I will avoid all Hard Rock facilities and especially this resort at all costs.
