“We had a wonderful time at Margaritaville!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2010

This was our second port stop onboard the Liberty of the Seas - Ocho Rios! It was rainy and cloudy and kind of cool outside - so we headed to Margaritaville! We arrived slightly prior to lunch - ordered a huge plate of nachos with Holiday Margaritas! Our kids swam in the pool and loved the slide. My husband and I just chilled by the pool. It was great and relaxing and the wait-staff was wonderful! Both kids enjoyed their food and we stayed around long enough to order dessert. All in all it was a great experience! If we cruise to Ocho Rios again - we will definitely be going back to Margaritaville! BTW - it is only about a 5 minute walk from the port. Try to collect some coupons upon entering the market area - we did get a couple of free margaritas!

“pricey but good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2010

need more wait staff. fries and wings were good but pricey and food took forever to come. burgers looked like they could be prepared better, wanted to try but saw uneaten portions by other patrons. maybe the bun could be toasted ? the kids had fun though at the slide.

“amazing and fun restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2010

I had an amazing time at Margaritaville Ocho Rios. The employees were very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were very clean which was unexpected in third world country. I was back a few times so I had pretty much 60% of the menu and all the food was really good. My favorite was the roasted pepper and onion sandwich which I got a few times. I also used the volleyball court by the beach was great because the local kids were fun to play with. I actually met the general manager Lars and he was very helpful with the local sights and very accommodating with me and my big family. If you are ever in Ocho Rios , drop by Margaritaville and sit back and enjoy the food, music and the beach.

“Jimmy, you let us down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2010

We are bigtime Buffett fans, so Margaritaville was a must-see for our trip to Ocho Rios. Unfortunately, the service was terrible, and a "quick" lunch ended up costing us 2 hours of our one day in town.

If you have been to other Margaritavilles, you know what to expect-- great atmosphere, good drinks, good food, great music. We were there for lunch-- maybe dinner is better, from the sound of these other reviews.
