Went there on a party boat, a few things to remember though. The water slide if not prepared, is INSANE. So make sure your face is protected. Also you will get hassled to buy a picture that they take of you, hassled in a nice Jamaica way, but still hassled. The drinks are expensive, but buy the... read more

I didn't want to like Margaritaville this much! We had no expectations, beyond tourist trap. We met very helpful staff, ate tasty food (tacos, burgers and jerk chicken were all good to great). In all, we ate one lunch and two dinners at Margaritaville! Drinks weren't super inexpensive, but we expected that. The water features and water slide were lots... More

We went there November of 2014 we didn't order anything because we were in a hurry to get to our destination (yay Jamaica) but one thing I can vouch for is the spectacular view of the Caribbean sea they do have a slide and a trampoline among a few other things in the water so you can bring your kinds...

This place can be an ideal date spot as well as a chill place for families with teens. The vibe is upbeat. Groovy background music. Decked out theme. Water feature for the kids. Ensure that you have good company in order to have a chill time. This place is good for even groups. Gotta bring what you want to get... More

Warm breeze, overlooking the bay that people side down a tube, dumped into the water. Lots of water games and toys. Food was average but filling. Good lunch place, just down from Doctors cave beach that is a must visit ($6 to enter) but some of the most beautiful turquoise clear water.

Original Margaretville. Fantastic food, great service and a 120 foot free drop waterslide into the ocean. What the hell could be better than that?! A must do while in Montego Bay.

Went for ladies night, danced and had a good time! There was a lot of locals, so it was cool to see how they danced and you get a little taste of thier culture which I enjoyed.

Beware there are A LOT of people selling stuff to you on the beach. If you want to relax and chill you may want to say at your hotel. If you want non-stop activity and people coming up to talk to you then this is the place. They were selling stuff non-stop. The DJ stops the song to advertise the... More

This visit was unique even for older people. However, the younger set enjoyed water slide after snorkeling and then comes the booze cruise back to the resort with plenty of regge music. Apple was again excellent at advising things to do.

We had great expectations, given the Jimmy Buffet brand, but this establishment was like a bad knock-off. Run down, not clean and though the staff was friendly, they were pushy. The margaritas were served in small plastic cups..not cool at all. We read the menu, and burgers were by our estimation a bit pricey at $15.95USD. A 'security guard' was... More
