I've set the bar high by giving this place 5 stars, it's not something I do easily because very, very few places earn this from me. Not that I'm picky, but places that already bill themselves as BEING 5 star have disqualified themselves. Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Beach Resort is, without question, one of the finest American hotels. From their commitment... More

Very clean, comfortable hotel right on the beach. The theme is just enough to feel beach-y without going into kitschy Disney territory. The rooms are huge, sound proofing is a bit of an issue but are otherwise perfect. They seemed a bit understaffed when I was there, waited forever to be seated one morning for breakfast when the hotel was... More
