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.

Stayed here in August 2016. Always a treat to have their ice cream creations. They also have quick breakfast items when you are in a rush.

When you visit the Hard Rock Hotel, you must pay a visit to Emack and Bolios, the Stairways to Heaven Ice Cream and pizza is to die for ! The Ice Cream is great to have by the pool and the pizza after a hard day hitting the parks.
