No posting on this blog for some days — just back from the Hard Rock (HR) Resort and Casino in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. HR has done a great job linking the resort to its name sake, Rock music.
Stuff that belonged to current and past rock stars and the music genre is all over to include motorcycles, hot rods, guitars, show costumes and paraphernalia , live shows, painted instruments on buildings, it is a long list, right down to tiny embroidered guitars on the pillow cases.
Michael Jackson Show: I have seen a few resort shows in the past and they are OK. The MJ show … well, you would have thought you were watching the dancing real deal.
The resort was huge but because of building layout and design, you would never know the HR’s 1700+ rooms were full.
- 13 pools with swim-up bars
- 9 restaurants
- A Nicklaus designed golf course
- Caribbean beaches
- Spacious suites fully equipped with Hydro Spa Tub, private balconies, free Wi-Fi, 24 hour room service
It’s an all-inclusive, so it’s all covered if one stays out of the casino and spa.
Lastly the spa, located under the main building, is beyond description – size, design, atmosphere, you would have to see it… nothing short of cavernous!
And of course HR’s namesake music is everywhere.
