Reviewed yesterday NEW

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 hotels. We typically go there just about every day during our stays at the Hard... More

The one stop shop for all your midnight munchies, revamped and sorry to say lost its hotdogs but still a yum tummy stop.

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. Stopped by in the morning for some Starbucks Blonde Roast (which I was glad they... More

While staying at the HRH, we stopped in 1 night for ice cream and milk shakes which were really good. Another day we just got snacks and I ate the best donut ever. It was a chocolate donut with chocolate chips all over it and it was awesome.

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.

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 we weren't off the beaten track I wouldn't use it.

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

Always grab a breakfast we can eat/drink while walking to the parks for 7am opening, just has to be done! Always appreciative they are open and staff serving at that ungodly hour!! Coffee always sets me up to head for Harry Potter, keep up the good work.

This is a really good ice cream and coffee shop. It sells lovely ice cream. Although the range of flavours is not huge what they do have is awesome. The cones by themselves are delicious. The coffee is Starbucks and good also. This is also the sort of general mercantile store if you will of Hard Rock hotel. It sells... More
