1. Hard Rock Hotel
With a top spot in the middle of the Zona Hotelera, the Hard Rock Hotel doesn't just tick all the usual megaresort boxes: it does so with originality. As an all-inclusive resort, you'll get endless dining and unlimited beverages along with nightly entertainment and beachside amenities. Contemporary rooms have coffeemakers, spa tubs, furnished balconies, and on-brand decor that brings a rock-and-roll twist. Add in a highly regarded spa, fitness center, five restaurants, an infinity pool, and two swim-up bars and you’ve got yourself a great resort hotel. And surprisingly, in a resort zone where adult-only hotels are common, the Hard Rock Hotel is child-friendly with a great kid’s club and waterslide.
