“Too many of them now, they are played out.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Nothing to see here. Everything overpriced and you can visit one basically everywhere. I ordered Red Stripe and the server kept telling me to get a margarita. He explained I was in Margaritaville and I reminded him I am in Jamaica and get me a Red Stripe!

“Dont ever go here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Montego Bay Jamiaca sounds wonderful doesnt it? Well we were here from the Oasis of the Seas and took the excursion there. Boy oh boy were we sorry we did. First off the excursion drops you off on the shopping strip. What it is is the same nick nacks you can find in any tourist town with Jamaica written on it. Also locals begging you over and over to come into their store then on top of that drug pushers trying to sell you weed. We decided to go to Margaritaville then we got in and sat down then was ignored so we got up and moved sat there some more times. Now mind you we only had two hours. We waited 30 for someone to acknowledge us to bring us a soda then the wind picked it up and it spilled on our tables and then I had to beg for some attention to get it cleaned up. We ordered our food finally and 1.5 hours later we were told they were out of the buffalo chicken and did we want to order something else. We ended up splitting the "jerk chicken wrap" It just had boiied chicken in it. WTH and on top of that no JImmy Music. PLEASE DONT WASTE YOUR TIME ON THIS EXCURSION OR GOING HERE. The term hurry is not in their vocabulary and you will only feel like a nuisance. I will be contacting Margaritaville.

“Party Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Its the place to be wether you are a party person water sports or just want to chill its the place you want to be.Once staying in Montego Bay and feel bored just take a stop at Margaritaville be entertain with Jamaican Music Food and Culture.If you are into watersports they are tonne of activities to do, snorkeling,gigantic pool toys etc.If you like drinking just let one of the expert bartender mix a special drink for you dont be afraid to ask.Thursdays are ladies night which is free so you have locals attending ofcourse. But everynight is complete fun and enjoyment.Libertytoursjamaica
