We took a catamaran ride from the resort to Jimmy Buffets. Once there we had some fantastic drinks and food, then proceeded to go down the water slide, wow what rush that was!

The place was super dirty. Slide wasn't open the entire time we were there. Drinks were overpriced. Service was terrible.

First time being to Margaritaville, but we defintely enjoyed the time there. The water activities were great and because we went close to lunch time it was kid friendly. The staff was very helpful and nice!

WAY too commercialized, overly priced, terrible ambiance. Back in the day the place was fun and very “Jimmy”. It is now little more than a greedy corporate shill. Stay away. Definitely not worth the effort!!!

We have been here 4 times. We came with a group by catamaran. It is a neat place to go to once or twice. I just find it to stressful when you get there. The servers all want you to sit in their area and...More

The inflatables and slide are the big draw for us. Kids had a great time and the location is good. Drawback is that all margaritavilles are exactly the same...

The beach is spectacular!!! You must go. Who doesn’t want a drink and great music to go along with the sun and water!?!? I am so glad we went. The vibe is fantastic. We didn’t eat there but they have a full-functioning restaurant and bar....More

Grab a cab or shuttle cab at the port. Really easy. No problem getting back either. Lots of cabs when the ships are in.
