Just returned from three nights at Margaritaville Beach Hotel and overall had a positive experience. The hotel does a lot of things very well and the location cannot be beat - it is directly on top of a beautiful white sand beach, far enough away from the pier and nightlife but close enough to enjoy those things if you wanted...

Great room with beautiful view of Gulf, very friendly staff always asking if they can be of service, large parking garage and outside parking for large vehicles (van) Lacks adequate restaurants on location. A little over priced

We were at this hotel off season. But being huge Parrotheads we had to try it. Nice location. Lovely rooms. Bar had everything we needed for a good time. Pool area looked wonderful but it was too chilly to use. We will be back to visit Lulus and the FloraBama.

Stayed here twice now and we love it. Rooms large with big showers, balcony overlooking the beach. On the quieter side of Pensecola beach with lovely views of sea or marina . Has a bar, restaurant,pool, beach bar with hammocks and heaters when open in season. Very clean hotel, friendly staff, lots of free self parking.

The queen room with a Gulf view was very roomy and comfortable. All of the staff were very friendly and professional. Ate breakfast and lunch at Frank and Lola's restaurant. Very good food and value.

We loved this Hotel . All the activities made it feel like a resort. The view is breathtaking! We upgraded to the King executive Gulf Front room , amazing well worth the money . Big walk in shower / tub. We enjoyed a large wrap around balcony. Fun pool activities for our son .

We just finished a 5 night stay at this most wonderful hotel!... I true gem in the hotel industry. To sum it all up easily...First, the grounds, our room, hotel lobby, pool area, beach area and garage were extremely clean, laid out well and beautifully decorated. Second, the hotel staff, regardless of what job they performed, were happy, courteous, professional... More
