This hotel was perfect from the moment we walked into the lobby and directly out the windows at the back saw the absolutely breathtaking view! Everything about his hotel was worth the extra cash it costs to stay here vs a cheaper hotel nearby. The staff were very friendly and accommodating for our whole stay. The pool could be bigger,...

Stayed for a couple days around Christmas with wife, son and grandson. Everything about the hotel from rooms to staff to grounds very top notch. We were very impressed and pleased. Great value right on Pensacola Beach and near everything. I'd stay here any time. 4 stars easy.

We love this place. Had our daughter's wedding here last year and came back to celebrate our 40th anniversary! Everyone remembered us and welcomed us with hugs! It was such a nice welcome!

We couldn't be happier with our stay at Margaritaville for our anniversary. The rooms are absolutely beautiful. We loved all the little details throughout the room. The designer really out did themselves with every feature of the entire hotel!! We had a balcony overlooking the gulf and it was fantastic to have a cup of coffee out there in the... More

My girl friend and I stayed for Mardi Gras and really enjoyed the land shark tiki bar. The Keurig coffee maker was nice as well. The staff were helpful and friendly. We will stay at this hotel again! John

I had read on this site about people complaining about the walking involved to and from either their car, the beach or just getting around and don't understand their complaints. This hotel is no different than any other hotel as far as how much you have to walk to get to the beach, etc. We stayed two nights and the... More

Although we visited in December, we really liked the location and the layout. We visit Pensacola Beach several times a years and we've stayed at several hotels directly on the beach. This is by far our favorite because of the rooms and hotel layout. The rooms are furnished with the expectation that the tenants will be on the beach. We... More

We stayed a week at this hotel the end of May thru beginning of June 2013. The hotel food was delicious, the beach was nice although waters were a little rough for a few days. I must say the margaritas were the best I've ever tasted and my husband agreed. This is not a huge resort so it's very easy... More
