Description: Once a major Mayan center, the name "Cozumel" derives from the Mayan word "Ah-Cuzamil-Peten," meaning simply, "land of the swallows." So once you get some of our fine food and drinks in your gullet, you'll be in excellent keeping with ancient Mayan tradition! Located just off the Yucatan coast on Mexico's largest island, Cozumel offers Mexico's best diving, beautiful coral gardens, and some remote reefs where you can spot dolphins hard at play.The island is also good for bird watching (just don't look up!), but we recommend you check out the wildlife inside Hard Rock instead, where for years we've been cataloging and preserving rare rock 'n' roll artifacts, keeping them as primed as possible in their natural state.The unique Mayan architectural style makes this one of the most beautiful Hard Rock Cafes in the world, and complementing our numerous rock objects is a superb ceiling mural depicting a vast underwater setting. In fact, this mural is so realistic you may never need the actual beach, but we understand if you do venture out, just so you can say you did. All beachin' aside though, the choice for Mayan culture in the new millennium is the Hard Rock Cafe Cozumel!

When I went here, all I had was a Coca Cola. But the people were nice and the atmosphere was great. Overall, it was a nice place.

This is how they advertize this Hard Rock, and they are indeed correct. Located conveniently at the end of the pier where cruise ships land, you will miss it if you blink twice (no kidding) Small gift shop - but selling the traditional black HRC shirts and shot glasses.Not much variety Average rest room Small restaurant and tables, set closely...

We wanted a place we were familiar with in Cozumel so we went to Hard Rock. The food and service was outstanding with a great view from the second story restaurant of the port. A lot of rock 'n roll memorabilia. Close to shopping (negotiation, haggling) and within walking distance of access to taxi's also.

**I was here 9/25/11** You can get to this HR by taxi. It's too far to walk unless you know your way. It is the smallest HR in the world but it's super nice inside (as most are) and the service was great. Our Hurricanes were great and so was the food. I usually try to eat local food when... More

Stopped in here for lunch while on vacation. The place was very cozy and a sign toted it as the smallest Hard Rock Cafe. The food was good and the service friendly. We had a window seat that allowed us to view out over the water. A nice place to have lunch.

Perfect place to go when you've been in Cozumel awhile and just want "American" food. It's pricey, but satisfies that need.

Nice as all Hard Rocks, same good food, price ok. It saved us after a frustrating arrival with heavy rain in Cozumel. We were quickly attended, burgers came quick but the bill... it took more than half a hour to PAY! I think they wanted us to stay more... lol

Billed as the smallest Hard Rock Cafe in the world, certainly seemed it when inside. Nothing different from any others, Friendly staff and comfortable interior which was non smoking (much better compared to some others) good prices and drinks and another keeper glass for the collection.
