The winning streak continues for the Hard Rock Hotel, as thanks to its excellent environmental achievements it has been recognized by EarthCheck once again with the 2018 Gold Certification and, by extention, the S Award (Distintivo S).
EarthCheck is the leading program in the benchmarking, certification, and environmental management systems used by the travel and tourism industry. This certification is a recognition of the actions undertaken by the property to reduce pollution in its environs.

AAA Four Diamonds
Finally, this year the hotel renewed its Four-Diamond status, an award given by the American Automobile Association (AAA) to hotels that have achieved the required high standards of luxury.
The AAA Diamond Awards are considered the most important awards in North America on the topic of luxury, high-end service for tourism establishments. Less than 6% of the 30,000 hotels approved by AAA reach this coveted designation, which speaks to the level of qualifications for this prestigious honor.
As of 2017 the Riviera Nayarit has maintained this recognition for 15 of its properties (Four- and Five-Diamond) and seven restaurants.
The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB) renew their commitment to the strategic promotion of the destination, seeking areas of opportunity in order to increase the influx of tourists with the backing of the Government of the State of Nayarit via the Tourism Promotion Trust (Fiprotur).
