Note from previous review ' the shack' bar we are reviewing is the swim up pool bar. Is is nice to have the swim up feature, they could easily fit 3 more fixed seats in the current set up, have some entertainment (music or screens or both)- these are the downsides.

Excellent for those swimming at the pools at Hard Rock Hotel. Sure, it is overpriced, but we still enjoyed a few drinks there. The kids loved their milkshakes, and when one of the kids had birthday they made a special birthday milkshake. Alright service, but we have experienced better and also more 'entertainment' in other poolbars.

We were ripped off at the "Shack" bar, in the lobby. The barman stole our change & made it look at if we were to blame. We had to call the Police & make a complaint. Be careful about patronizing this hotel. Obviously, this was just another tourist rip-off. Will never go there again, EVER!!
