(Hello! Magazine) — Whether your ultimate travel fantasy is a high-stakes poker weekend with your friends or a chilled getaway for two, with limitless resort credit, the Hard Rock Hotel offers you an access-all-areas pass to paradise. On top of a lavish dining and nightlife scene, there’s serious indulgence to be found by daylight too, no wonder it’s the world’s most reviewed hotel on trip advisor.
Our first morning at the massive 121-acre all-inclusive resort was spent putting holes at the golf course, relaxing our muscles at the spa, followed by the complimentary tram to the exclusive Eden pool, where we spent the afternoon on a swinging cabana bed with cocktail in hand. It wasn’t hard to see why Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Maroon 5 have visited.

We stayed in a decadent Caribbean Suite; from the moment you enter you’ll immediately notice rock star touches like a private balcony and a double Hydro Spa Tub. If you want ultimate indulgence the Rock Royalty-Caribbean Sand Suites come with a personal assistant to attend to your every need. And if the Mini bar and liquor dispenser’s in your room aren’t enough there’s even 24-hour room service all included!
In the resort there’s a variety of gourmet dining options available through the 11 restaurants, from Brazilian steakhouse Ipanema and The Market international buffet to Asian Teppanyaki at Zen and brick-oven pizza at Pizzeto. After checking out some of the 23 bars and lounges, we grabbed a drink and marveled over rock history icons such as Elton John’s hand-painted piano, Tommy Lee’s Motley Crue silver space ship outfit and Gene Simmons’ custom axe base and Sammy Hagar’s 1926 hot rod. Inspired by the rock royalty we became rockstars in the Music Lab, where we learnt to play instruments of our choice and recorded our own music video. You can even rent a guitar from reception for the evening and rock out in your own suite. (…)
