This is not a resort! There are no services! The very limited food is served in styrofoam boxes!! The drinks do not live up to Margaritaville standards! The beach is gorgeous and the rooms are nice, but the floors in the room were filthy! They, obviously, had not been mopped! This hotel is way too expensive for what you get!

The staff at this property are fantastic!!! In particular, a gentleman named Scott really went above and beyond to deliver exceptional customer service. My husband and I were walking down the hall and Scott overhead us looking for pool towels. Scott stopped us and then went all the way down to the laundry facilities and got some for us. Scott was so kind and also apologetic that they were not any out by the pool. Scott sent us off with a huge smile and expressed his appreciation for our business, wished us an enjoyable stay, and said to let him know if he could help any other way. While Scott really stood out to us, the entire staff seemed to be focused on delivering a great customer experience. Everyone was so nice. Other pros about this property: Great food Incredible view Great sound proofing between rooms = very quite and relaxing rooms. I did see other posts here from guests that were unhappy with the decreased housekeeping services. For us, it was a non issue. The room was stocked with extra towels upon check-in, so we never ran out in our three night stay. The only area I would say needs a little TLC are the floors in the guest rooms. They were quite sandy when we checked in. It is probably difficult to keep the floors completely free of sand at the beach, but it seemed like maybe ours did not get vacuumed after the previous guest. Not ideal for a $650 a night room, but honestly everything else was stellar, so all-in-all it was an absolutely wonderful stay and we will definitely stay at this property again. Special thanks to Scott for the awesome customer service!! 😊

Overall was satisfied with my stay at Margaritaville Hotel. It was clean and employees were very friendly. The staff was excellent. However, unfortunately our room smelled like chlorine mixed with dirty feet. My boyfriend and I aren't picky, and we did not want to bother the staff, so for us it wasn't that big of a deal. But the smell was not good. I didn't like that there were not microwaves in the rooms, this was very inconvenient, but the staff was happy to heat up our food for us which was excellent! The pool was gorgeous and relaxing. The gentleman working the Tiki Bar is awesome. One night we went down to the pool at around 8 pm and were disappointed to see that there were no towels. We swam anyway but did not have any towels to dry off with. The door to our room needs some tending to. It was hard to open and never wanted to shut. The beach front access is amazing. Free parking is awesome. Overall, nice stay.

Just got back and had a fabulous time. Every associate we encountered seemed happy we were there and friendly. Entire resort very clean. Room great as always. When we texted to get anything it was quickly delivered. Frank and Lolas have a much more complete menu, better pricing but still in styrofoam and no table service. Pool clean and plenty of towels. Our only disappointment was the person who initially checked us in. Last year we also visited this week to celebrate our anniversary and they recognized this on a board at the front. This made her smile and was so happy she took pictures and posted them all over social media. I told the person it was our 33rd anniversary and he said he would make sure it was recognized. Nothing was done. Yep many would say that’s minor but it was important to her and I hate she was disappointed. Next when we checked in he saw we had requested a upper level room (we had 3 reserved- one executive and 2 king deluxe). He told us he found us all rooms on the 7th floor and confirmed them by charging my credit card. Once the rest of the party arrived we had a room on the 7th floor, one party on the 6th floor and the other on the 5th floor. Disappointed we all were. If management wishes to know more please contact me- there can’t be that many people that reserve 3 room in this configuration. We are Bill and DeeDee. Other things to note. In the summer you may consider lowering the heated pool temperature by a few degrees. When you have a steel drum entertainer in the bar turn off the piped in music. We love this resort and will return!

Let's start with the excellent location--it almost stands alone on the beach which meant small crowds which is always a plus. It is a short drive (or even walk) to many good restaurants and shops or out to the beautiful Gulf Islands National Seashore. Some of Pensacola Beach is still recovering from Hurricane Sally, but we found as much or as little to do as we wanted. We loved the provided umbrellas and beach chairs (Alex was great!) and felt the cost was reasonable. The pool was quite large for those who prefer chlorine to salt. The gift shop and attendants were good. Our room and the bathroom were spacious and lovely. We would have appreciated full service in the restaurant (Tired of Covid restrictions yet?), but found the breakfasts offered sufficient and the workers at the bar where we ordered breakfast efficient and friendly and we went into the more congested areas for all lunches/dinners so not a major drawback--see multiple reviews for the great and not so great of those places. We loved the "Jimmy" touches in both our room and the public area. IF we ever return to this area we would not hesitate to stay here again.
