Costa Maya Port Restaurants?

Can someone who has visited Costa Maya recently give me an update on what restaurants are currently open there? I am trying to research online but am trouble finding recent sites with accurate information. For example, there used to be a Hard Rock Cafe, which I was looking forward to visiting to add to my collection, but they have since closed due to not doing enough business. Have other venues also closed there, or are there still a good amount of places? I was planning to just get off the ship to enjoy the pool/swim up bar, and get something to eat at a decent restaurant, otherwise I'd just eat on the ship. If anyone knows of free wifi at the port, that would be helpful also- I found a site saying that "Mamasita's" offered it on the 2nd floor but again I dont know if this is still accurate or if this Mamasita's place is even still open. Any advice appreciated!

Tropicante in Mahahual has good food and free wifi. It's a short cab ride from the port area.

Thank you but because I am a single woman travelling alone, I don't feel comfortable taking a taxi in Mexico on my own, so that is why I want to stick with the port area.

Maya Chan is another suggestion for you. You still have to take a taxi to get there (which is included in their already cheap rates). I felt much safer taking the taxi with my young family than I did while I was near the shops in port. I get sick of being bugged to come into the shops to buy something & look at things. This small, private beach resort was the highlight of our trip!!!! It was easy to give the guy at the taxi stand our names & we were already on the list & fully taken care of by the wonderful people at Maya Chan.

If it's a Disney cruise maybe you can meet people on your trip meetup page. We knew just about everyone who went to the Tropicanate with us. We were supposed to meet up and go over together, but some people went early or late. But if someone knew you wanted to go with I am sure you could work it out. Hard Rock was closed for sure, it was all boarded up. I didn't see much there at the "mall" port. They did have a pool and drinks. I heard Senior Frogs wanted $15 a drink. we paid $4. Steve is so nice and it's a super quick cab ride.
I hope you can find someone to go there or Maya Chen with.
