“Big margaritas and they cook your fish!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We visited twice on this trip. Our fishing boat dropped off here the chef prepared our days catch three different ways. Our best meal of the trip was accompanied by several huge margaritas. Filo our waiter was the best. The atmosphere was quite festive

“Nothing special, too expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The food and service were ok, but nothing special. Food and drinks are overpriced. Sits right on the ocean, so the view was nice. We went for dinner around 7:00 and were one of two couples in the restaurant- not the atmosphere I expected at Margaritaville.

“Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We travelled here on day for lunch with friends. There is a access to the ocean with all kind of water toys to play on so wear your swimsuit if it's sunny.
The food was excellent and the drinks were yummy.

“Touristy but fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The first you tnotice is the gift shop, the giant lawn chair, and the bar. And normally by the time you're done soaking that up, a bikini clad waitress if offering you $3 shots, which mind you are pretty good.

This place has beach access and a huge inflatable obstical course? tanning area? relaxing? play area? There's a ton of inflatable stuff out in the ocean. The margarita's are good, didn't really try the food. The place is good-loud and spacious with a good view. Decent prices and souvenirs.

The bathrooms are all the way through, down a hallway almost before you walk outside fyi.

“Excellent Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Just back from our first cruise ever. Our first stop was Cozumel, Mexico. After sailing in the morning, we walked from the pier into downtown. We were beat. The rest of our group went snorkeling so we texted them to meet us at Margaritaville for a cold beer (they took a cab). Our server, Arturo, was exceptionally pleasant, friendly, funny and attentive. He played some great games with us and made the afternoon very enjoyable. The food (had nachos, quesadillas and beer) were very good. We were most impressed with Arturo and the level of customer service we received. Puts El Torito to shame.
