Fun little afternoon get away

We took a little get-away from the hotel and came here for a few hours and had a blast. I have been to several Jimmy Buffett's in the Caribbean and I have been to better ones but if you are close be sure to come have a drink. The ocean water is beautiful and its even more beautiful when the... read more

We were impressed with the atmosphere. It was busy and a little crowded, but we were taken care of. We loved the view and how we could walk on the beach right there. Super fun and we will go back. Oh- the nachos were good.

It wouldn't be a trip to Ocho, without stopping at Margaritaville! Just to sit and look at the beautiful blue Caribbean with a Margarita in hand. Love the atmosphere!

just another bar, costly to get in, security check prior to entrance to club, watch for drug dealers.

Thank you for stopping by and for this useful feedback. Margaritaville has more of a club atmosphere in the nights and based off your review it seems you visiting during that time. We are sad to read that you did not enjoy yourself and alarmed at the warning for drug dealers. We have passed on your comments to management so... More

We had a cheese burger in paradise of course, and shopped the gift shop. Other guests enjoyed the water access along with their meal. If you are a Parrothead, then you will certainly want to visit. A quick taxi ride from Sandals resort.

JB is just down from the cruise ship dock and is a great place if you are looking for beach time, plus they have a pool as well. There is security guards on the beach so you don't get hassled plus good drinks and bar food.

We went on a Monday night and it was fairly crowded which is a good thing. Really loud disco music with far too much bass pounding all the time making conversation impossible. If you like that than you'll have a great time we were just expecting a laid back Jimmy Buffett quiet relaxed evening. Our fault for not researching before... More

This place doesnt even deserve any more of my time. Over-priced, Americanized menu, Jerk isnt jerk, portions are TINY. Drinks suck.

We went to take the kids to the beach before getting back on the boat. The food & atmosphere were great! Kids loved the pool & slide. The beach is nerve racking for the first 20 minutes because of the locals that walk in the water trying to "give/sell" you everything under the sun. They were pestering the kids while... More
