The Rooms 

Each room in the Hard Rock Cancun allows up to four adults or two kids and two adults. Most rooms have ocean or lagoon views, giving the perfect paradise view when your guests wake up. 


Tying The Knot

The Hard Rock Cancun is a popular option for destination weddings and is busiest in the summer months, meaning there is a high chance it can sell out in May, June, July, and August. It’s best to plan your wedding during those months earlier to ensure you get the date you want. The hotel itself can host up to 5 weddings per day. The beach is the only ceremony location at the Hard Rock, which can impact the timing of your ceremony if the day is full of weddings. The wedding coordinator at the Hard Rock Hotel will help you plan your day, answer any questions you may have, and will typically respond within 24 hours. They will help you throughout the wedding planning process and provide you with the necessities on your wedding day, like linens, glassware, flatware, and barware. 

There are a number of ballrooms available for the reception and will be based on how many guests you have attending your wedding. From the Rock N’ Roll ballroom to the Cancun ballroom to the Caribbean ballroom and breakout room, there are a variety of beautiful ballrooms to dance the night away. 


Wedding Packages 

The Hard Rock Cancun offers different wedding ceremonies, letting you choose the right ceremony for your big day. They offer elopements, minimonies, micro weddings (weddings with a guest list of 50 or under), sequel weddings (allows you to book at a later date to celebrate with family and friends), or large weddings of any size. Whether you want something small and intimate or large and celebratory, the Hard Rock Cancun can host it all. The Hard Rock takes reservations up to two years in advance, letting you plan and book your wedding well in advance. 

They do not require a seven-night minimum or a specific number of rooms to be booked to receive the Complimentary Wedding Collection that they offer. The Hard Rock gives every couple complimentary room nights, free room upgrades, and private events (depending on the number of rooms) with their wedding benefits. Their all-inclusive benefits allow for unlimited a la carte dining, and they do not require reservations at any of their restaurants. 

When planning a wedding at the Hard Rock Cancun, 80% of your guests are required to stay on the property. You will be able to purchase wedding passes up to a maxim of 20% of the total number of guests attending the wedding. Guests that stay at another hotel will have to purchase a day pass for the wedding and are only guaranteed on the day of the wedding ceremony.
