#FabULyssFamilyFind Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana
Hi #divamoms! I hope everyone is having a great week and enjoying this #Fabulyss spring weather! With summer approaching and vacation being just moments away, I want to help make choosing a summer getaway destination a little bit easier.
This past April, I had the pleasure of visiting the all inclusive #FabULyss Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana in the beautiful Dominican Republic. This resort had everything and more! Aside from the beautiful beachfront views, the resort amenities were a 10 plus. This resort spans over 121 acres and includes the beautiful Rock Spa, 13 different pools, an expansive casino, beautiful and spacious rooms, and nine different restaurants to please even the pickiest eater.
The restaurants were so yummy (#deLysscious); there were so many options to choose from and the service continued to be incredible throughout the entire vacation. A highlight was the steakhouse, Toro, which served the most amazing cuts of meat, and while the experience itself was five stars, there was still a fairly laid back vibe, keeping up with the theme of relaxation at the resort. It was perfect for both kids and adults! And the martinis, a specialty of Toro, were incredible. In all honesty, the resort’s list of drinks seemed to never disappoint, the Pina Colada being one of my personal faves. It really put me in a tropical mood and of course my three children loved the Virgin Pina Coladas.
This family vacation was the perfect mix of entertainment and relaxation, offering something for everyone. Out of the 13 pools, four have a swim up bar, which is always a plus in my opinion! Despite it doubling as a casino, which might I add is a dream if you’re a risk taker, with hundreds of slot machines and roulette tables, the resort also heavily catered to kids. I know my kids enjoyed splashing around the Splash Pad and the kid-exclusive pool with an amazing water slide! My tween son loved playing volleyball in the tween pool. I especially loved doing the water aerobics in the morning!
And if you wanted some Mommy relaxation time, babysitting services are offered, as well as the Kids’ Club to keep them happy and preoccupied. My three year old daughter loved the Angelina Ballerina playtime and the kids entertainment show in the evening. My nine year old son had the best time singing Karaoke with my husband at night.
Speaking of relaxation time, let me tell you about the spa, which completely took my breath away! It was a huge facility, about 60,000 square feet, that houses an ice room, multiple indoor pools, steam rooms, private rooms, and saunas. The service was incredibly personal and catered solely to the guests; I never felt rushed or pressured, it really felt like “me time.” I also appreciated the finishing touches of including a beautiful gym and hair salon adjacent to the spa. It really gives you the opportunity to fully pamper yourself, as you should on vacation. The ultimate #MTO #Mommy Time Out! They also had some amazing shops and everyone wants my Beach Hair Don’t Care beach tote that I bought in one of the hotel stores.
This destination was truly #Fabulyss and truly exceeded all of my expectations. I thoroughly recommend giving this resort a visit if you’re in need of some great food, fun, and Vitamin D! Can someone say “return trip?” Lol! Plus, I forgot to mention, you never need to leave the property! Everything is there for you and your family! I look forward to hearing about your amazing family trip to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana.
You will thank me for the suggestion, I promise!
