RCD Hotels luxury all-inclusive resort properties including the

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic,

four Hard Rock Hotels in the Mexican resorts of Cancun, Riviera Maya, Vallarta and Los Cabos. Also, in Mexico, RCD Hotels also own

UNICO 20˚87˚ Hotel Riviera Maya, the first of a new luxury all-inclusive concept. One of my favourite resorts.

There are other properties include the Nobu Hotels in Los Cabos, Chicago (NEW Opening in March 2020) and Miami Beach together with the iconic Eden Roc Hotel Miami Beach.

The Hard Rock all-inclusive Hotel Experience… is perfect for all the family

All stays at Hard Rock All Inclusive Hotels come with ‘Limitless Resort Credit’ which can be used to pay for golf on the world class golf courses, spa treatments in the on-site Rock Spa, beauty treatments in the salon and various excursions so you can visit ancient sites such as Tulum and Chichen Itza in Mexico and swim with the dolphins… all paid for with your Resort Credit (a 25% service charge applies, so for example if you have a spa treatment shows a cost of $200 you would only physically pay $50 for the spa treatment!! )

(All the resort credits can change at any time so needs to be checked at the time of booking).

Rock Royalty (Concierge Level) – Elevate your status and become Rock Royalty. You’ll have a Rock Royalty personal assistant to help you live out your rock star dreams from VIP Check-in and express luggage delivery, along with upgraded full size bath products, with complimentary couples’ massage and so much more.

Hard Rock Golf

Well what I can say is that if you love golf, or belong to a golf club – this is the world class golf opportunity for you! Their flagship course in Punta Cana was designed by legendary golf champion Jack Nicklaus and offers 18 holes surrounded by lush greens. This challenging, par-72 course is everything you could want from a round of golf with rock ‘n’ roll touches that guide you through the greens. From the start to end of your golf day at the clubhouse where drinks and snacks are on the house. For all keen golfers staying at Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, Hard Rock Hotel Cancun or Unico 20° 87°, you have the choice of playing the lush Riviera Cancun course (also a Nicklaus Signature course) or the Hard Rock Golf Club in Playa Del Carmen. With transportation included to and from the course, they have thought of everything – you just need to bring your shoes and clubs! Not feeling quite up to your golf game best? The resorts offer a free, introductory training session so you can swing with confidence and show off your new skills on the course. Fore!


Hard Rock all-inclusive Hotels for Families

They welcome families with open arms and offer excellent facilities for children of all ages in ‘The Roxity Kids Club’ for the youngest guests and ‘The Cavern’ teenage lounge for all teen guests. This is where your teenager goes wishing they had not come on holiday and the parents know nothing don’t understand a thing, to them not wanting to go home because they have the best parents in the world and will be pestering for them to rebook for next year! It is a truly amazing place for all ages.
