Saturday arrival: I was so excited for our family vacation, but so far I'm disappointed. Our first night here and our beds had sand in them. The big problem was WE HADNT BEEN TO THE BEACH!!!! Someone in housekeeping didn't do their job! Update Monday it happened again and this time I took pictures! We came back to our room... More

This was our first visit to Margaritaville, great location, beautiful beach, friendly and helpful staff, well appointed room. The only suggestions is adding a choice of pillows, we found them to be too firm and wish they would up their game with the coffee in the restaurant.

The hotel is beautiful and the rooms were much larger than we anticipated! Very pleased with all the amenities- the beach chairs out front were very relaxing or you could opt for the pool deck, which had a DJ during our Memorial Day stay. The only disappointment was the restaurant- not much of a selection and the food was mediocre... More

We were traveling from Orlando to New Orleans, and decided to stay here based on the name, and Trip Advisor reviews. Definitely happy with the decision. We had a beautiful beach view, very comfortable beds, and great staff. Everything was outstanding, from the restaurant, pool, bars, to the employees. This was our first stay, but definitely not our last.

Great place to go relax and to go have a great time. It has a really nice, beautiful little nook where you can work in the lobby - with a great view of the beach. It also has a beautiful, fun pool area. I love that they have arts and crafts in the middle of the day to give guests... More

This coming weekend will be me and my husband's 3rd year at Margaritaville and truly is a beautiful retreat from our busy work days. He and I have been counting down for another great experience. Thanks Margaritaville for always giving a wonderful needed relief.

My family and I stayed only 2 nights at this hotel. I wish we had more time to stay longer. The hotel was amazing. The rooms were gorgeous and the views were spectacular. The food and drinks were good. We got carried away in the gift shop and spent way too much money. We will most definitely return.

Upon arriving the hotel looked beautiful from the outside. They offered valet parking which is great, pricy but very convenient. Check in was easy, the guy at the front did not really tell us about the amenities or anything so we had to ask about them which then he was very helpful. The room was easy to find. Inside the...

This is our 4th trip to Margaritaville! We've had some really good ones and some that could have been better. This trip we felt like the hotel was getting back to how it was the first time we went. The thing we notice most about Margaritaville Beach hotel is that there are a few staff members that don't try as... More
