    Hard Rock Cancun vs Riviera Maya

    I've totally decided on Mexico as the location for my wedding but am having trouble narrowing it down from there! I never considered Hard Rock Resorts before this site (thank you for that!) and am curious if anyone has experience at either the Riviera Maya or Cancun locations. Is one nicer than the other? Are they super crowded? Most importantly (for me), what kinds of crowds do they attract?

    I'm not a fan of the party scene and I'm worried about Hard Rock bringing in that type of crowd. I don't know why but for some reason I can see Hard Rock resorts attracting a younger crowd, especially in Cancun. Anyone know anything about that? I'd be there in December, so not during Spring Break or anything which I know would only be asking for trouble!

    We chose Riviera Maya becuase half of it is adults only. We wanted that option.

    Hi Beatrice!

    I've been to both resorts several times. Hard Rock is about entertainment, but not always about a party. Especially at Riviera Maya, you'll find quiet places, little nooks to relax in, etc. I know the name "Hard Rock" scares some couples away... but it shouldn't.

    Hard Rock Cancun - gorgeous beach, smaller property, beachfront infinity pool with 2 swim up bars, in Cancun's hotel zone.
    Hard Rock Riviera Maya - rocky shoreline with overwater gazebos, lagoon style beach, tons of poolspace, adults only section/pool

    If you're beach people, you'll want Cancun. Riviera Maya is on the water, but the beach is not something you can walk out into like in Cancun. Both have great features, wedding packages, resort credits, etc. You can't go wrong with either one! Let us know if you need more help!

    DarciJones - That's good to know! Thank you!

    TA Shelli - Hi! Thank you so much for all of the amazing info. "All about entertainment and not always about the party" sounds exactly like what I want! That's upsetting that Riviera Maya doesn't really have the beach since it sounds like it has everything else I'm looking for. How hard has it been for you to find quiet places at the Cancun location? Do you think time of year plays a factor a big factor (outside of the obvious Spring Break)?

    Thanks for the help, you two.

    Hi Beatrice,

    I know. The beach is the only thing about HRRM that can turn couples off. But, the shoreline is still quite pretty with the waves crashing, etc. Cancun is all about that gorgeous beach! They keep the music out at the infinity pool right in front of the ocean. You can find places back a little bit and clusters of pool chairs throughout the area. Time of year does come into play, but so do other guests and groups at the hotel with you. Some groups are nice and quiet while others are quite rambunctious.

    Glad we could help!

    Well, a pretty shoreline may be enough since the other pros of HRRM are really speaking to me. I'm sure the one in Cancun is lovely most of the time, and I'd like to go there in the future, it just seems a little risky for my wedding. Thanks for the help!
