Rock Out on Fender Guitars at this Puerto Vallarta Resort

In Puerto Vallarta, Stay by Suzanne Koch

Vacation like a rock star at Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta. This all-inclusive hotel is perfectly situated on the beaches of Bahia de Banderas in the heart of Riviera Nayarit and is decked out with rock memorabilia while still maintaining a chic ambiance. The hotel has everything you need for a Mexico getaway, including delicious cuisine, a luxe spa (opening in August) and sprawling pool, but it’s the Sound of Your Stay feature that really amps up the volume on your getaway.

A stay at a Hard Rock Hotel wouldn’t be complete without a jam session and at Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta you get just that. Pull out your leather pants and tease your hair because you’re about to become the star of your own vacation. The “Fender room service” does exactly what you think it does and delivers a world-class Fender guitar right to your room. Guests can pick and choose from a menu of 20 electric guitars that include legendary Stratocasters, classic Telecasters and more. In addition to the guitar, a Fender Mustang Floor™ Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal and Amplifier, and a pair of SOUL by Ludacris headphones are also delivered along with an in-room video lesson, “set list,” and recommended websites and apps to complement the experience. The most rock-star thing about it? It’s included in the all-inclusive plan, so live it up.

Another musical feature of the resort is downloadable playlists that make for the perfect soundtrack to your stay. Upon check-in guests are able to download one of three playlists, each representing a different personality of the hotel and each with their own unique vibe: Players, City (curated by Mayer Hawthorne) and Resort (curated by Fania).

With 348 guests rooms, guests can choose from a variety of room types with amenities like custom-designed furniture, breathtaking views, marble baths and a wine and liquor dispenser. For true rock royalty, opt for the rock star suite,  a two-bedroom suite with a spage-age retro vibe and it’s very own dedicated concierge. The suite is also decked out in Shakira and Madonna memorabilia, so you can sleep like the queens do.

The restaurants all emphasize the exotic, surrounding lush vegetation, panoramic views and festive environments. In addition to the six restaurants, there are also five bars and lounges. The Sun Bar, located in the lobby has nightly live music, casino nights, contests and Karaoke.
