Tourist bar

Beachier than other Margaritaville's around the world, but the same general concept. I thought it was better than Rick's if you have to choose, but it's really just a tourist bar.

During our week in Negril, we went three time to Margaritaville. We rented a house outside Negril and we always went there to enjoy the beach. The place is really well decorated. Beautiful colors and lots of chairs where you can eat. It also has a lot launch chairs with umbrellas to enjoy the sun. You don't have to pay... More

This is not Jamaican food, by any stretch, but if you're eating at a place called Jimmy Buffett's that is not what you're looking for. Basic American. Not much vegetarian or healthy

We went to Jimmy Buffets Mararitaville in Negril with a bus tour. They took great care of us, the staff there were great. We were only there for just over two hours. The beach is lovely and the vibe is fun. If I was spending the day I would spend the $30 for the private cabana. The beach chairs are... More

Great place on the beach to eat and drink. Went to dinner one night, food was very good and the ice cold Landshark lager was even better.

I have to say this location was just okay. We got two beach chairs and paid the attendant a fee to mount an umbrella (the umbrella was free, but you have to tip the gentleman for. digging the hole and mounting it). Then came the endless, and I mean endless, line of people on the beach trying to sell something.... More

Very expensive place to get a drink. The beach is nice as this is part of the negril 7 mile beach. They play music during the day and do try to get people to party. The restaurant is in the sand which is kind of cool. The merchandise and drinks are pricey. You will really notice if you are staying... More

We went there on a Monday night and there were only 3 couples. The music was techno dance music and the drinks were horrible and overpriced. We left within 20 minutes of arriving at the place - so did the other two couples.

Great time. We arrived by Catamaran from our resort. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. Prices were a bit high.
