Dec. 1 marked an important moment for Hard Rock Hotel’s ongoing expansion throughout Mexico’s most popular vacation spots when the former Aventura Spa Palace and Aventura Cove Palace will reopen as the new Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya. The 1,264-room all- inclusive property has undergone a more than $50 million renovation and promises to be the ultimate “rock n’ roll utopia,” including nine restaurants,nine bars and lounges,six large swimming pools,a 75-room treatment spa,a mind blowing nightclub and nearly 89,000 square feet of meeting space.
“When you walk into the property it’s going to be ‘The Hacienda of Rock & Roll,’ gushed Frank Maduro,who is VP of marketing for the brand’s all-inclusive collection. “All guest rooms will have hot tubs [or] a two-person tub inside,and some of the rooms will have sky terraces with a hot tub on the exterior,with a second story,ocean views and outdoor areas.”
For the guest who wants the ultimate rock n’ roll experience,the hotel also offers a Rock Star Suite,which is completely over the top,including a large private terrace,a hot tub and a vibrant design. Reportedly,an as-yet unnamed world-famous rock star has even consulted on the room’s look and feel! The property is actually separated into two sections – Heaven is the adults only area and encompasses 577 guestrooms,along with several swimming pools,four restaurants and three bars that are open only to adult guests,while the rest of the grounds are family-friendly.
Guests can also enjoy access to the nearby Playacar Golf Club,which was designed by Robert Von Hagge. Other recreational activities and services include tennis,water sports,laundry,Internet access,video conferencing,and VIP services. In addition,it’s important to note that Puerto Aventuras is located just south of Cancun,with easy access to the region’s international airport. A variety of other activities are available in the area,including tours to ancient Mayan ruins in the nearby towns of Tulum and Chichen Itza,as well as access to the nearby Punta Vendado Beach Club,which offers horseback riding,ATVs and wave runners.
Upcoming concerts in early 2014 include three live shows and one dance party performed by My Morning Jacket in late January,followed by a performance by American Country music star Dierks Bently in February,but keep checking back for a more comprehensive concert schedule,which we will publish when a variety of new dates are announced.
