We stopped for a quick bite and a dip in the sea.....before returning to the ship. It was okay, not the best ......but, Margaritaville offers a "sweet atmosphere" USUALLY! The kids had fun with some local kids on the "wipeout" type rafts in the water....but, service was a little slower than we anticipated, and pool was a bit "dirty"

My husband and I were in Ocho Rios while on the Royal Caribbean Cruise we took in March of 2005 for our honeymoon. We really enjoyed our day there! We did the Dunns River Falls exclusion (separate review but should mention, take water shoes!); afterwards we went to Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville. We had drinks in the pool at the pool... More

Met local friends here - good food, typical tourist spot, overpriced and geared to the cruise ship tourists. Easy to find - hence our reason for selecting it as a place to meet. Great spot to stop for a drink and to enjoy the scenery. Location is the selling feature, and close for walking around the market area. If you... More

I had really high hopes for this place. Looking at the website it seemed exactly like the sort of place I'd love to visit. Maybe it didn't help that we visited during the afternoon when there wasn't a ship in but there wasn't much atmosphere here at all. Just a few people taking selfies and some even daring to enter...

This was a stop on our day trip, first stop was Dunns River and then Margartaville. Since, I have been to the one in Montego Bay before, my expectation were high. This one appears to be a little smaller. Same service, but I like the slides in MB because they go to the ocean instead on the pool.

We attended the Club on August 10th, arriving around 10:30pm. We paid the US$35 cover for unlimited alcohol. We left around Midnight. As you enter, you get the feeling the place is very dodgy. The place was almost empty until 11:30pm. Mainly local girls taking selfies in the pool. The "All Inclusive Drinks" were limited to one bar, where there... More

I would skip this. The food was lacking and high priced. The waitress we had was interested in other things than seeing we were taken care of. The trees blew all kinds of random debris into your food. The pool (with bar) was murky green although the children seemed to like the slide.
