Pros: Staff very friendly and helpful
Cons: Taxi drivers at the hotel try to take advantage of tourists.
Pros: Breakfast good
Cons: lunch and dinner poor

Cons: I specifically asked for breakfast boxes as I have to leave really early the next morning to catch my flight. And it's quite a long way from the hotel to the airport I have low blood sugar I have to eat. Lady at the transportstion counter promised she would reserve two boxes for me. The next day When I asked for them the receptionist simply shrugged and told us he didn't receive such request. So I told him I requested and I hope something would be done at the time, he responded with an expression that he doesn't care at all and would not want to do anything about it. It was such an disappointment. I can't believe I stayed in this hotel which my friend recommended and had such an unpleasant experience. I would not choose hardrock ever again.
Pros: I left my ipad in the room and 1 hour later i got a call from the hotel front desk. While i was having difficulties in turning back to the hotel, the staff offer me courier service to send me my ipad back. While i was preparing to pay, and found out the cost was bear by the Hotel!
