ROCK Your Summer?

dawn (2)

Let’s face it…summer is just around the corner and you have seen enough reality TV episodes of The Real Housewives of (insert city here) and ABC’s The Bachelor to be asking yourself, isn’t it time for my own relaxing getaway to an island oasis?  Reality check.  Guess what?  Your time has come!  Ron and I are beyond thrilled to present our biggest and best giveaway yet.  And the most exciting part is – we recently visited this majestic place (read our review HERE) for a family wedding – so we can dish on everything.  But, let me be straight…you can hang up your addiction to reality drama ‘cuz there is no dirt to dish here (unless you count the silky sand between your toes).  This place literally…ROCKS!  To say it far and exceeded our expectation would be a major understatement.  But, then again – what do you expect from Hard Rock? Thrilling gaming action in the biggest and best casino around (as in 45,000 sq feet); exhilarating nightlife; tantalizing culinary options (ooh, our favorite); state-of-the-art meeting facilities and rooms worth tweeting about; 13 pools including 3 kids pools and a lazy pool (tried this, too); miles of beachfront property and the finest spa (can you say 60,000 sq ft?) in the Dominican Republic, Rock Spa®, that will have you wondering if you really did fly on a commercial plane with only 6 inches of legroom…all infused with a legendary rock and roll vibe? Delivered! Now, add a mind blowing all-inclusive experience offering unbelievable amenities and services. Introducing the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana.  Don’t you think it’s time to kick off your white tourist-tennies (and ankle-high socks), slip on a pair of flip flops and be whisked away to a Caribbean island? Yeah, we agree and this can all be yours…for realzies!

Ron Hard Rock Green_resizedImagine white sandy beaches, fresh air and green palm trees swaying in the Caribbean sun.  And, to make matters even greener…this place gets a sustainable thumbs up!  We checked it out first hand and can attest the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana is eco-conscious from the inside out.  Besides efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle, in terms of Social Responsibility, they don’t take their beauty for granted.  They realize how blessed they are and believe it is their responsibility to give back as often and as generously as possible.  As part of the Hard Rock International family, they are dedicated to making the world a safer, healthier and better place, abiding by the Hard Rock mottos of “Love All – Serve All,” “Take Time to be Kind,” “Save the Planet,” and “All is One,” which can be seen across the walls of  their Mexico and Dominican Republic hotels.  These mottos are a reminder of their commitment to humanitarian and environmental causes. Additionally, Hard Rock Hotels raise awareness for a variety of causes including breast cancer research via the worldwide Hard Rock International Pinktober initiative and ending world hunger through the Imagine campaign. All of this in addition to their Founder’s Day, Educational Outreach and Toy Drive which support the local Punta Cana community (who knew rockers could be such softies?).

Also, as part of their eco efforts, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana strives leave this world a little better than they found it by easing stress on our environment through an aggressive Green Meetings program. Their Green Meetings help reduce our carbon footprint by lessening electricity, paper and water usage. Yes peepsicles, sometimes in life, you truly can have it all. (ARV $2,300.00)!
