Stayed three nights for a business conference. Hotel was great. Beach is beautiful! Large, clean room with bay view. Did not use the pool, but it looked great. I can't comment much on value since my company picked up the tab.

We stayed two nights on our way home from Disney so I could have some beach time. We did pay extra for a room on the ocean side which had a balcony. The room was beautiful, the view from the balcony was even better. We are not sun worshippers so having the balcony was great - we could enjoy watching... More

I really want to love this place, but....it was an expensive, less than perfect visit. The good: The place is beautiful, the staff is generally friendly and helpful. (McKenzie, Kelsea and Amanda!) The beach is great (but don't expect 'free' beach chairs - that'll cost you $30 per day) The room was quite nice (but details on cleaning were overlooked... More

My husband and I just returned from one of the best vacations we have ever had, thanks to the wonderful staff and beautiful room we had at this hotel. The day we arrived, we had left a bag at the airport- Kari, the manager, went back to the airport and retrieved it for us as we were exhausted after 15... More

This was our third visit to the Margaritaville Beach Hotel and it was the best one yet. We'd been a little disappointed after our stay last year, but we couldn't ask for a better experience. From the guest service staff, to front desk, to Frank & Lola's, to the pool, it couldn't have been better. If you're just wanting to... More

This is truly one of the best, if not the best hotel, I have stayed in. The beachfront location is wonderful but there are many beachfront hotels. The atmosphere is elegant yet casual and laid back if that makes sense. The rooms are large, with an entry way and a curved wall with a beach mural. Bathroom has an extra... More

I booked this hotel after comparing with others in the area as I was visiting the US for a competition. We decided to combine a mini holiday. This was such a pleasant surprise as everything went beyond our expectations. The staff could not do enough for you, the food and drinks selection and standards were very high and rooms soooo...

Came down to celebrate my 40th birthday, and enjoyed every second of this beautiful resort! The staff manages to be super fun and friendly, without being too over the top. We felt like they were genuinely excited to have us as guests. The beach is absolutely stunning, with its powder white sand and turquoise waters. Just enough wave action to... More

Came down for a visit with my son who is stationed at nearby Hurlburt Air Force Base. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are spacious with amazing views of the gulf. Everyone on the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had an incredible stay!!! Cannot wait to return 😎!!!
