Margaritaville Beach Hotel
Ranked #2 of 10 Hotels in Pensacola Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 7, 2012

Quit reading the reviews and book a stay at this hotel.

The property is new, and designed to provide Parrotheads (check out the license plates) and other travelers with an above-expectations experience. You won't be overwhelmed by Buffet-ness, but it's certainly the theme of the property.

The public areas are bright and casual, but as efficient as any new biz-class hotel. A top flight chef serves creative and yummy specials, in addition to the standard Margaritaville cafe fare (yo, nothing to sniff at, either).

The rooms are unique and sublime, with one of the most comfortable mattresses I've ever experienced. I truthfully slept for two days before housekeeping got into the room. Yes, Margaritaville TV and Sirius Radio channels set the mood. Everything about the bathroom was spacious and designed for a beach vacation.

Be warned: the bar serves excellent margaritas.

Why are you still reading reviews? If you're looking for a hotel in P'cola Beach, book the Margaritaville!

We decided spur of the moment to spend two nights here. We have stayed at several all-inclusives as well as some very nice hotels in the states. This definitely was the nicest we have stayed at in the U.S. I'm comparing to the St. Regis and Intercontinental in Atlanta as well as others across the U.S. We had a room on the front corner over looking the bay and the beach. The bathroom and shower were HUGE!

There were only two negatives. The sheets on the king bed didn't fit and constantly wrinkled and came loose. I believe thus was due to a slip cover that zipped around the mattress that didn't fit. Jimmy or management needs to sleep in one of these beds to see how annoying it
is! It is a shame to have a near-perfect resort and have this be the one blemish a customer remembers. The other negative is a small amount of mildew growing in the shower. The bathtub and showers are all white and if they don't get a handle on this, it will get out of control.

The pool and beach bars are nice, but they put VERY LITTLE alcohol in their drinks. I don't mind this, but the drinks should be priced accordingly! $7.95 for juice is expensive!

I would give this 4 and a half stars and will definitely be a repeat customer.

Just finishing up our last day at Margaritaville Beach Hotel. Our entire stay was wonderful. King ocean view was excellent, roomy and well decorated. Not cheesy beach theme. Frank & Lola was good for breakfast & room service. Staff was always friendly and asked if we were having a good time. Beach chair rental people were also friendly and helpful. We rented a set of chairs for 3 days for $60 total. You can also get beach towels to use from the front desk or pool guys. Totally worth the investment. Will totally stay here from now on when we visit Pensacola beach again. We also came during a lull in business right after spring break and before summer kicks off. The rates were a great value and the area was crowd-free.

We took a last minute trip to Pensacola and booked this hotel for one night. After getting there and seeing the hotel and its amenities we decided to stay another night and even upgraded to the beach/gulf view. The rooms are plenty big and have a great tropical feel to them. The shower is huge! The entire hotel had that tropical isle ambiance with some of the friendliest staff I have yet to encounter. The restaurant food was very good and reasonably priced also! I can't think of anything bad to say about the Margaritaville Beach Hotel!!

Room Tip: All rooms are nice but the price difference is worth it to me to go with the beach view!

This is a 4-5 star property. The grand entrance is only the beginning to this well planned property. The views of the Gulf are outstanding. The room rates are high, but well worth every penny.
The pool area is beautiful and very clean. Rooms are great, beds comfortable and the service at this hotel makes you feel like you are the most important guest in the hotel. Restaurants/Bar and excellent. Gift shop is fun.
With this hotel right on the sand, you have full use of the beach right out the back door...enjoy!

Room Tip: Oceanview are always great, but since this property is on the sand, either side of the hotel will be...

Wonderful hotel, fabulous theming and a great location.
I'm not sure what some other reviewers must have experienced but the staff here has been extremely friendly and attentitive to needs.
I love this place. Enjoyed sitting in the lobby listening to the steel drummer, the dedicated Buffett music channel on the tv in your room, big walk in shower, and a keurig coffee machine in the room.
Yes it's a little pricey but the value is there especially if your a parrothead!

Stayed 4/8-4/13 with wife and 2 kids 4&8. Great hotel, food, drinks, rooms etc... Landshark landing was awesome! I don't know why more people were not taking advantage of it. Nate working there was very nice. The chef at he hotel was nice and stopped by our table to make sure Everthing was good on Easter Sunday. The pool was great. I loved how it was elevated with views of both the gulf and bay. The pool bar and waitress service was nice, but may be a bit slow for some depending on your likes. The room was outstanding. comfy beds, huge shower, coffee maker, flat screen, safe, fridge, etc... We had room 602 gulf view. We were upgraded to Gulf view since we could not check in until 5 instead of 4. The delay in check in was the only bad thing that happened here, but again they made up for it by upgrading us without us asking. The location, and beach area was always fantastic. I definitely hope to stay here again. We all had a great time and myself and the kids didn't want to leave and miss it already! P.s. The lava shrimp I couldn't get enough of!
