Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana- By Frank Lazzaro

December 8, 2011

The first all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has opened in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. This sprawling resort takes the Hard Rock concept to an all new level, featuring unlimited meals and drinks, and the largest casino in the  Caribbean. The resort boasts over 1700 rooms, 15 swimming pools, an enormous hydrotherapy spa,  over 10 restaurants and several bars and lounges on a stunning beachfront location.

Stocked with a wide array of  rock star memorabilia, including oversized pieces such as Madonna’s silver prism  sequined limo and Sammy Hagar’s roadster, the décor offers plenty of eye candy. The resort is showing to be popular with singles, couples, families and groups, and was at almost full capacity during my recent stay. Nighttime entertainment included their house band “Revolver” nailing classic rock covers 3 nights a week, as well as DJs, karaoke, and the ever present casino. Plans are underway to launch an ultra hip disco night club on site, ‘Oro’ within the next 6 months. While pricier than most all-inclusive resorts in Punta Cana, the uniqueness of the property and the luxurious rooms and suites are making it a popular  choice. Guests traveling this year also receive a $1500 resort credit to be used on tours, spa, casino, room upgrades and other amenities.
