Ok if you like loud and tourist attractions

Went for lunch in our rental car and they did quickly get us a table, but right up front of the stage... Very loud and more for the young at heart but "fun". The service was great but I would recommend going upstairs, you can hear the music yet be overblown. The pictures make it look like slide... read more

We only went to Margaritaville in Montego Bay because a rented catamaran brought us there. The drinks were ridiculously expensive (i.e. $20 for a Jose Cuervo margarita), and the servers were rude. They were all about taking your picture and charging you for it, pushing you to buy merchandise... Embarrassing, really. Don't waste your time or money.

This was not well kept with broken items and repairs needed. The Margaritas we had were not even as good as the ones I make at home. Very disappointing. I expected higher quality Jimmy! The view and vibe were very nice though.

Stopped in for a drink and watched the party boats dock and everyone enjoy their time in the water. Prices are typical for a chain. Close to walk from the Sandals Carlyle.

Sashia was the best server ever and we had a blast on the water toys. The slide was broken but we hardly noticed. We went on a Sunday afternoon, just a few people there but the service and hospitality were so great we preferred it that way!! Told all of my other friends who were in town on vacation (for...

The place was a pit, it was dirty, the slide was broken, the water toys were all deflated and not in use -- it was nothing as pictured or advertised -- don't go there and waste your time if you are visiting Jamaica -- not worth it at all. The food we ordered was stale and my husband got asked... More

I got the taco salad my husband got the buffalo chicken salad. BOTH were inedible and my husband isn't near as picky as I am and even he wouldn't eat it! I got a mango margarita and it was ok. Our waiter acted as though we were a huge inconvenience. 2 salads and 1 margarita was $55.00. Save your money... More

Best nachos toppings were layered and not just put on top as most restaurants do. Enough for 4 people to share!
