This self serve cafe is on the first floor of Hard Rock and serves as a good stop in or out of the hotel for a light snack/ice cream. There is a pizza or sandwich counter if you have time to wait, or would like...More

This is a great place for grabbing a yogurt or cereal or other quick (and maybe nutritious) breakfast snack before heading out into the park and even better for an after-park indulgence of decadent ice cream! A cut above the usual snack-alcove/sundries places at most...More

Emack & Bolio's inside the Hard Rock Hotel is a great, convenient stop for ice cream, shakes, donuts & pastries and Starbuck's coffee. They have sandwiches, salads, breakfast items and other things. I had a sundae one evening, kids had ice cream at various times....More

We stopped in on our first morning at the hotel. Everything in this store is ridiculously overpriced. $7.50 for a small breakfast sandwich! The staff aren't very friendly or helpful. We avoided the store for the remainder of our stay.More

You're isolated from the local shops so if you want a coffee or ice cream you come here. It'll do. Overpriced water ($6/litre) bonkers pricing for ice cream ($6.50 for two small scoops or $7 for three MASSIVE scoops) and almost no toiletry/convenience items. If...More

I was quite disappointed that the only casual place that you could get food in the resort was so over priced, and the ice cream wasn't even good
