For people from New Orleans who want a quick weekend beach vacation this hotel is super easy. The rooms are spacious-we got a junior suite, reasonable and it is on the beach. They make it convenient for you to spend time on the beach -beach chairs/umbrellas for rent by the day and at the pool which has a great bar.... More

We stayed three nights and loved every minute. The Rooms where awesome. We had lots of room and a great view from the 5th floor. The Gulf view is worth the extra money. We can't wait to go back. I would recommend this Hotel to all of my friends. You are also only a 10 minute walk to shopping and... More

The hotel and especially the rooms are awesome. Our oceanfront room was spacious, very comfortable bed and the shower was huge! Everything was very clean and new. Pool area just gorgeous! The only reason it is not a 5 star rating is food service. I wish there were late night dining options. Food quality was very good, wish there was... More

My family stayed here for a couple of nights during one of my work travels to Pensacola. The sales manager was super nice and professional and she was able to find us a great room on the beach for a good rate. My children absolutely loved the play area outside of LandShark. The hotel is very clean and nice as... More

This was our 3rd trip to Margaritaville Beach Hotel. The first visit in June 2011 was totally amazing! From the staff, the rooms, housekeeping, frank and lola's, the beach, the pool, all of it amazing! The 2nd trip was not so amazing and we had a few problems and left feeling disappointed. This trip, the 3rd, felt kind of in... More

My husband and I planned a week-end get-a-way without our teen children, in order to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Although this place is top notch, there are a few customer relations classes that a few younger staff members should consider signing up for. For example, I arrived at 4:30 pm, as I was promised over the phone that rooms... More

We had so much fun with our older kids. We will definitely return. The cabana pool bartenders, Sylvia and Nathan, are the very best best! I love that it's the same staff as last summer...feels like family! Rooms a little pricey but overall a fun place to bring your older kids. Food is excellent, service is very friendly. The beds...

We stayed here for 6 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were nervous that Pensacola Beach might be too crazy and loud for Memorial Day weekend and almost cancelled. We had read that there are 70,000 extra folks for the holiday weekend, including a big gay pride festival. Although we were worried about all the extra folks, it was... More
