One of the first things that come to mind when you mention the Hard Rock is rock stars and parties.
But the All-Inclusive Resorts have taken over and made an incredible and family friendly experience at their properties in Mexico and the Caribbean.
I had the chance to journey to the Hard Rock All-Inclusive resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republice. Once I saw the beach and felt how soft the sand was I knew the journey was worth it.
I mean talk about Gorgeous! The Hard Rock has a prime location on Bavaro Beach, with just a 15- 20 minute drive from the airport to the resort, and they have certainly added in the wow factor to the resort.
My favorite thing is seeing all the memorabilia from famous musicians, from the Beatles to Elvis to Katy Perry.
Our rooms were located near the main building but with gorgeous views of the property. Punta Cana is a larger property than the other Hard Rock properties, but they do have a tram that comes around every few minutes so if you don't feel like that walk to the beach you can hop onboard and arrive in style.
One of the great perks of the resort is the 20+ guitars they have for guests to use. Just simply let the front desk know what day and guitar you want to check out and its yours(well for a few hours anyways). We put our guitars to good use just like the rock stars we are. Best part, its all included in your stay!
*if you want to play it, they give you headphones as well so you aren't disturbing your neighbors.
Music Lab is another great perk included with your stay, you can go learn to play in a band and even perform live at the Sunbar. If your more of an online person, you can star in your own music video!
For the little ones they have the little big club and can meet some of their favorite characters like Bob the Builder, Barney, Thomas the Tank Engine and Angelina Ballerina, they even come for breakfast!
They also have the Ultimate Playtime package available for an extra cost for kids 0-12, for those little one the package includes 3 hours of babysitting over 3 days, toy kit, diapers and wipes, baby tub, crib, highchair for eating, and more.
With so much to see and do at the resort its hard to get away and check out Punta Cana, but we managed and went on an excursion to go snorkeling.
The water was beautiful and the sky was clear, we couldn't ask for a better day. We headed out on the catamaran, and saw a multitude of fish, and I even got to "hold" a stingray!!
Punta Cana is definitely one of my new and favorite destinations, and you cant go wrong with vacationing like a rock star!
