Great place. But bit of a tourist trap

The beach is amazing. The water is beautiful. The setting spectacular. But when one the beach you will continually get approached by locals asking if you'd like to do water sports. They're only trying to make a living but it's worth remembering as it can make some people a little uncomfortable... read more

As we are walking into Margaritaville on February 4th, 2016, 4 pm, there is a commotion and we see 2 people pulling a man out of the water-unconscious. There was no one on staff that knew what they were doing. No one in charge. Thank goodness for the Americans there helping with the CPR. He was on excursion with a... More

skip this spot, usual bar food but 40% more expensive. Sat at the outside beach bar, lots of activity but definitively forgettable. Bill is given to you in US dollars, presumptious. Better change over your money, a little at a time.

Food great but expensive, service ok but pushy towards drinks and keep the crappy plastic glasses! I've dreamed of visiting since Florida 13 years ago very disappointing once compared

We rented a bungalow for $35 for the entire day. Had our own waitress and a great view of the beautiful beach. I had the best massage ($20) right on the beach, the best Margaritas EVER!!! The sand and water was very clean and absolutely breath taking. We will definitely visit Jimmy Buffet's again!

We enjoyed this very casual and very Caribbean hangout, the beach is a great place to sit with a margarita at your table and watch the sunset, We didn't eat so I can't rate the food but I see why it's Jimmy Buffets favorite Margaritaville, it certainly reflects all his vibe and his songs, we'll be back.

Located on the biggest beach in Negril. Very funny place - play all the time Bob Marley music, good local bear and snacks.

We were dissapointed, the food was not good and we hat better Drinks and Margaritas at other Places! Overpriced and overrated. There were tons of people there, a lot of them came as part of a Cruise Ship Excursions; so no place to sit eg for quite a whiley. The beach though, is just wonderful!!
