For those who think all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotels is all foam parties and cocktails by the pool, the groundbreaking of the new Woodward Riviera Maya at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya in Mexico should change their minds. Yes, Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya adults-only Heaven section is ideal for adults who enjoy live music, tequila tastings and rockin spa treatments—just see our May onsite review “Onsite Review: Rock Royalty Only”—yet on the kid-friendly Hacienda side there are basketball courts, a climbing wall and soon, a 20,000-sq.-ft. dedicated facility offering programs for kids and teens catering to all skill levels, as well as opportunities for adult guests.
When it debuts in early 2017, Woodward Riviera Maya— Camp Woodward’s first Mexican outpost—will feature an indoor snowboarding and snow skiing experience, skateboarding and BMX, scooter, parkour, cheer and hip hop dance programs and amenities, a trampoline program, and a digital media program. There will also be a snack bar, second floor viewing promenade where family and friends take a peek at all the action and a DJ booth on the top level. The programs will be instructor based and available to hotel guests with resort credit. Rates at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya start at $400 per night dbl.
Woodward Punta Cana at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic will also launch in 2017. Rates at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana start at $450 per night dbl. For more information, visit hrhrivieramaya.com, hardrockhotelpuntacana.com; or aichotelgroup.com.
