I've visited Margaritaville a few times! It's located on the hip strip. It's a great place to go during the day for something to eat or drink or for some beach time. And it's also a club at night which also has a great vibes! I recommend anyone to visit here whenever staying in Mobay.

I would give an "average" rating due to our minimal experience, but the water park area makes it worth the upgrade (we did not get to experience it as we went for the "nightlife"). We were not impressed although we did go on a Tuesday night. 20 people MAX. very empty, false hopes given of a "crowd that's coming for... More

Nice food and location, staff were very nice, although the locals did hound you to purchase things, just be polite and say no.

$10.00usd admission and drinks around the same. Not really all that. The music was live. Probably wouldn't go back.

Rick's café was fun! great atmosphere, fun people and all around a delight! Margaritaville was a waste of time, crowded, dirty chairs, awful food, unfriendly bar staff and people hanging around trying to sell drugs. We left in less than an hour.

This was a pretty nice place, albeit a bit pricey, it is sort of a ‘hang-out’ for the local ex-pat’s (and ‘wanna-bes). It’s right on the water has a good sized ‘open-air’ bar and a huge playground for the kids. The restaurant is roomy and comfortable but turns into a dance hall in the evening - very crowded at times.... More

This Margaritaville has an awesome waterplay ground that is free with purchase of a drink or food. The food and drinks there are ridiculously expensive so be aware! This place also turns into a club at night that is so hot its unbearable. Lots of locals as well.
