The reservation system for dinners was not acceptable. They force you to eat in the buffet. They state every restaurant is booked when they are not. Then the only way We got into restaurants was because our room came with a butler. Every night I would see families fighting to get into restaurants with empty tables. For all that money you pay the buffet should not be where I are forced to eat. I heard they never had done this before until this year. Very disappointing.

The staff was welcoming and attended to our every need. They are the reason we had such a good time.

Amazing resort with very friendly and hospitable staff. We especially loved all the pool entertainment and aerobics with Samurai and Baby Shark. Resort was well maintained. There were security checkpoints when we entered and left the resort too. Food was awesome, even the 24/7 in room service had delicious quesadillas. It’s worth noting that the pools close after 7pm if anyone is trying to swim in the evenings. Would recommend for anyone visiting Cancun/Riviera Maya. Will definitely be back!

The property is massive. There is something for everyone. The staff is wonderful. The main area for improvement is the food. The food is ok, not great. However, I would definitely return.

Everything about Hard Rock Riviera Maya was better than advertised. Seaweed problem not something they can control

The property was very nice i loved the view and the pools but the service was very very poor i didn't like that at all

The computers were down for the first day of the trip. We had to have a bell boy open our door anytime we needed to go back to the room. To make up for it, we received chocolate covered strawberries and balloons in our room on 2 separate occasions. The concierge also followed up with us a couple of times during our stay to check on us and offered to make us restaurant reservations.

The property was amazing. The amenities were great for all ages. The staff were very accommodating and welcoming. My family felt very safe. I wish they had a hot tub on the Hacienda side for 16yrs and older.

The bars close at 11.. I thought it was 24 hrs.. otherwise it was a great stay

We have been Hardrock loyal travelers for many years and traveled to many Hardrock across the world. However it was our first time to stay at Hardrock Rivera Maya. Be honest it wasn’t a pleasant experience in the beginning due to poorly trained staffs and lack of accurate information given from one staff to another. Soon after our complaints things starts to change to the better. Our assistant name David was keep us updated with daily schedules and restaurant reservations. He did a great job to help us to celebrate our daughter 8 years birthday. The kids club staffs are awesome and can’t say enough wonderful things about each every one of them. Last but not the least the lady name Anita works at ice cream station at Hacienda lobby is one of the hardest working that I saw, she always have a smile and welcoming to all the guests.

Nice people and food excellent confort room and all areas clean and security hotel was very comfortable

Came here for a girls trip. We opted for Heaven side and were pleased upon entry that it was a nice looking, well kept hotel. Seemed to have lots of activities, but most of the adventure/active events were on the family-friendly side of the hotel. We liked Club Heaven, and enjoyed the many pools and man-made beaches. The food was OK, but not memorable. The spa was probably the best part of this hotel. Overall, good experience. Wish there was more food options on the Heaven side, but Hacienda was a short golf cart ride away.

My husband and I have traveled through out Mexico the last few years and this resort is one that we will continue to go to over and over again. We just got back from our first visit and this resort is fun for all ages. The food is wonderful. Many resorts we have gone to require you to go into a restaurant for lunch for their buffets or what not. Not here right by the pool they offer so many options which allow you to just grab food in your bathing suit and return to your chairs. Dinner options are great. They have a few options on the hacienda side and more on the heavens, just beware heaven side is adults only. You are able to bring kids to the steak restaurant and brazilian steakhouse. Service is immpeccable. Shout out to Rene, Isaac and Chuko who made our trip spectacular. They made us feel so special and continually went out of their ways to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. The resort was so clean and there is so much to do there. We cannot wait to return with our kids next time.

Would recommend to anyone. The beach coves were especially nice and the food was better than most all inclusive spots.

I’ve never met a friendlier staff! The food was incredible, at the specialty restaurants and even at the buffets. The entertainment was great and there was something for the whole family. We chose this hotel for the large pool instead of staying st a hotel with a typical beach. Unfortunately the pool was freezing and unenjoyable, even for the kids. The lagoons were slightly warmer and provided a partial beach opportunity.

It was a very memorable trip for me and my family. The resort quality is exceptional - it is one of those places where you want your dream vacation to take place. The attitude of staff is amazing - everyone makes best effort to help you without any expectation for tips. Even after checkout, they advised us to use all resort amenities till our transfer to airport comes. All inclusive means all inclusive - there are many quality restaurants which don't require any reservation. Ipnema was my favorite. I'd highly recommend this place.

Our family loved the evening events, but my room didn't have water one evening

We had a great experience we were a little disappointed with it not being a real beach but understand the concept of the beach at the same time.
