At the beach there are so many overpriced paddle places. Come to the Margaritaville Hotel and at the beach is a small hut where they rent out kayaks, Boards, and so on. (Nothing motorized.) I love this place I come here everytime. Lani( or loni, sorry I'm bad with names) and Mike run the stand as far as I can... More

I looked around to find an island in the panhandle that wasn't too "Springbreaky" because I have a 15 and 13 yr old and did not want the total craziness. I did my research and selected Pensacola Beach and chose this location because it seemed upscale and a bit "quiet". At the same time I wanted a place that had... More

We stayed for a week with three kids. The only item of any complaint was the largest room has only 2 queen beds, but the rooms are larger than most hotels, extremely clean, and the staff was always friendly and helpfull. You will have to say hi to Nate in the tiki bar. He was one of the best bartenders... More

We stayed three days during during the week while on Spring Break. Our room was big and the balcony was large. The Gulf view was great. We enjoyed room service and never had a bad meal. What separates this hotel from others is the people, from the front desk to the room attendants every person we incountered were friendly and... More

From the moment we walked through the door we were greeted by friendly, knowledgeable staff. The porters were friendly, everyone was smiling, and we couldn't help but get caught up in their cheer. We swam at the pool, drank at the pool bar and enjoyed meals at the restaurant. Wonderful! We can't think of one thing bad about the place.... More

It is breath taking here! When you sit by the pool it feels like your on a cruise. The food is great! The room and bed is so comforting. Great access to your vehicle, outside, or the beach. We have stayed at other hotel chains and we said they just aren't friendly. Here they go out of their way to... More

Margaritaville is NOT my normal hotel. Typically I arrive at a hotel -- shower and sleep -- rise early and leave. Therefore I look for economy. This stay was different -- went to a 'destination wedding' on the site. Many good things to say about the hotel: you don't have to leave -- room, food, beach, pool, bar, lounging area... More

We just returned from our first visit to Pensacola Beach. Margaritaville Beach Hotel was amazing. We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary while we were there. Our biggest decision was sitting at the pool or sitting on the beach. We have been to many Margaritaville Restaurants and gift shops and I must say that the items in the Hotel's gift shop... More

We have stayed here several times and always look forward to going back. The rooms are great, the bed is great, super sized shower, coffee maker in room, small fridge, balcony to look out over the gulf, great bar and lots of friendly and helpful service. Plenty of places to chill and relax. Close to lots of restaurants and activities.... More
