Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya

We’re heading home to Hard Rock Riviera Maya this January! This free flowing resort is like two resorts in one – split down the middle by our Concert Courtyard Main Stage. Each side of the resort has its own lobby, restaurants, pools, bars, and lounges for you to explore! With multiple stages, action sport center, waterpark, zipline, and more this is the perfect playground for our winter adventure in Mexico.

**Pro Tip: The Heaven buildings are blue and the Hacienda buildings are terra cotta. Hop in a golf cart to quickly go from one lobby to the other – any time, day or night..



Rise and shine to complimentary room service delivering your breakfast, or hit the coffee shop for a specialty drink on your way to a full breakfast buffet. Lunch includes buffet, sit-down, and poolside grill options. For dinner, make your way to one of nine restaurants or hit the Concert Courtyard for stageside munchies.
