We had fun and memorable stay. Everything was superb especially the staffs' friendliness and hospitality. However, please increase the frequency of the free shuttle since the hotel location being the furthest from other hotels to the night market. Instead of only once for every half an hour, make it once for every 15 minutes especially during peak season like school...

This is our first time to Hard Rock and definately met all our expectations. The premise had the wow factor. The staff were warm and friendly. The rooms had the best tv entertainment that no other hotels have. The food and restaurants are good. The Roxity Club does a good job, comparable to Club Med however should provide drinking water....
