Early coffee at Jolly Beach Resort?

We are getting ready for our week long girls trip to the JBR.

Just wondering if there is a place to get coffee before breakfast. From my research, I see that Hemisphere's opens at 7am, but is coffee available anywhere close to the beach in the morning?

Thanks so much in advance!

We were in a beach bungalow and had a fridge and a coffee maker. Don't think the rooms have a coffee pot though. We didn't see coffee available any where but the buffet in the morning. Perhaps you can rent one.

Enjoy your trip

I'd bring your own travel kettle,coffee and dried milk! Surely the restaurant opens early?

Thanks for your replies. We were just wondering if there is coffee available close to the beach, so that we can take it on early morning walks, before breakfast. It looks like we will have to get coffee at Hemisphere's at 7am and go for a walk from there............no problemo! :-)

The idea of waking up early (before 7) on holiday is blowing my mind...

POSSIBLY the restaurant at Jolly Castle may be open earlier, but I'm not entirely sure.

LOL@DTG - I like to get up around (or just before) dawn - which is why I very, very rarely stay in resorts!

I m usually up between 6-7 am on vacation...its a wonderfully peaceful time of day especially when your at a beautiful beach and have all day to enjoy your surroundings...the first thing i do upon waking up is a have great cup of coffee and enjoy the surroundings..over sleeping while on vacation in my opinion is generally a waste of time...now saying that...everyone is different..just enjoy your vacation!

ginde10-you summed it up quite nicely. :-) 6am may be a little too early for us, for spending every minute outdoors that we can is what we plan to do.......................less than 3 weeks now! :-)

Part of the joy of being up early is that everywhere is so quiet and deserted but you can hardly expect a business to run very long if it opens before there are enough customers to make it worthwhile. Same principle applies to requests for a deserted beach with a great bar- bar won,t last long!
