Hard Rock Casino and Hotel

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is the only all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel in the world.  They have a stated vision to become the best destination resort and casino in the Caribbean and the service and amenities attest to that vision.  You can dine in one of their nine restaurants ranging from an American Style Steakhouse to Asian Teppanyake and upscale Italian to international fusion; Quench yourself with top-shelf drinks at any of the 15 bars (plus a well-stocked in-room mini-bar); Work out in the 15,000 square foot fitness center complete with climbing wall, arcade center, mini-golf, billiards and various other games; or, Lounge by one of 15 swimming pools, not counting the really big endless pool that stretches for hundreds – all for the all-inclusive price. 

The inclusive price also includes wireless internet and phone calls to the Continental US and Canada (some restrictions apply), all with taxes and gratuities included.  Whether you come as a single, a couple, or a family, there are plenty of activities so satisfy everyone.

If you need some diversion, the facility has an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course and one of the Caribbean’s largest Vegas-style casinos.  After dark, there are plenty of options for entertainment. It is a Hard Rock hotel and the nightclubs and bars are very active after hours.

There are many alcoves, nooks and spaces for private or group gatherings outside the walls of the meeting rooms.

The rooms are spacious and well-equipped with marble floors, balconies, double Jacuzzis®, and double showers in every room.  LCD TV’s with satellite reception might tempt you to never leave the room but we recommend you venture out.

The hotel is between 20-30 minutes from the Punta Cana airport (PUJ) which is serviced by over 40 airlines including US Airways, American Airlines, British Airways, Air Canada and Airtran plus many others that fly throughout the Caribbean, Central and South America.  The hotel can arrange for pick-up at the airport with prior notice for $20 (a taxi cab ride will cost $50) or $38 round trip.  If you can travel with others in your group there is a sliding scale for hotel-provided transportation (or the taxi ride can be split).


About the TCA

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
