interesting for daytime visits.

i had a blast during the entertainment segment. LULU, Greg, Ramone, kadeem are awesome! Bought a hurricane and ordered the appetizer platter it took forever to get to my table. The waitress was very rude for some reason but whatever! the entertsinment and food was good.

We ported in Ocho Rios and it was a down pour, we looked for shelter and found Margaritaville after shopping around town. They had the staff dancing with the guests and playing great music. The drinks were delicious, and the slide was amazing to dive into a pool. There was a local man making little birds out of palm leaves... More

After a lovely afternoon at Dunn's River Falls we stopped off at Jimmy Buffet for something to eat. Our children had a fantastic time with the little slide and pool while we took in the sights and scanned the menu. The food here is overpriced. I suppose the rationale is that you pay for experience, pool, beach, music etc. when... More

I first came to Margartitaville Ocho Rios in 2013 and had a blast. I attended on Saturday and Monday nights. This time around, it wasn't as much fun. The music was okay and now they charge hotel guests on Monday night (it used to be free). Not a lot of dancing. It felt more like a bar or lounge, not... More

I liiked going here but the drinks dont get you drunck at all lol. After leaving the hotel which had water down drinks, I wish I couldve gotten some stronger drinks at the club. I enjoy the music however and the crowd is mixed which I like. Also there is a lot of locals who put on a dance show... More

Cool place to party at night the drinks are a little pricey but the music is good, I think on Wednesday is the best night to go $25 for all you can drink any other night you are going to pay a lot of money for a few drinks.

We dislike OR so we stayed on the ship in the morning, by afternoon we ventured off to this bar nearby. The beach area is small but OK, there is a pool. lots of people in the bar but we did not go in, just used the beach area. Would not return, nothing special.

This was a very formulaic restaurant designed to capture the parrot head dollar. The only highlight was the water slide that my kids enjoyed. It is a good place to hide from the hoards of taxi drivers.

I was very disappointed in this place. The food was bland and cold. Atmosphere was not good either. Wait staff wasn't very friendly. We had a choice if a burger or salad after our excursion to Dunn River Falls. The burger was cold and bun was hard. I asked if I could exchange it for a salad and was told... More
