Couldn't ask for anything more. Very nice, relaxing, clean and peaceful. Loved the valet service. The rooms are really nice! All the toiletries are wonderful. A great experience. The restaurant is good. Everyone is very friendly! There is a wonderful view from all areas of hotel. Will be back.

While looking for something to do the weekend after Thanksgiving, we found this hotel online. We checked rates on the hotel's website and found a Thanksgiving Special of $99. The website would allow us to make the reservation for Friday and Saturday night. My hubby called to see if they had military rates. The Thanksgiving Special rate was lower than the military rate. When my hubby mentioned this to the operator, she said the Thanksgiving Special would not be honored because we were not staying Thanksgiving night even though the reservation would have been made online. My hubby spoke with the manager who concurred with the operator. Thank goodness we found out about the false advertisement before we made the trip all the way to Pensacola and having to pay $70 more per night. I guess we will never know more about this hotel.

Thank your taking the time to provide feedback based on your encounter with our reservations department. We sincerely apologize if the website encountered a technical difficulty, with rate calculations, that we did not see during the time that you contacted us. The exact verbiage that we advertise on our website for the mentioned package is "$199 includes a one night stay plus the Thanksgiving Grand Buffet for two with sumptuous creations from Executive Chef Eric Troup and “Welcome to Margaritaville” Margaritas upon arrival. Add up to 2 nights for $99/night for a Happy, happy, happy Thanksgiving!" and in no way was it meant to be misleading or construed as false advertisement. It is disappointing to hear that you will not be joining us for such a special occasion, although we are hopeful that you will consider us for a future visit to the beautiful island of Pensacola Beach.

While I expected a Jimmy Buffett style, party hotel, I was not dissapointed that this beautiful property is much more a laid back place to relax and enjoy the beach, food, and drink.

Frank and Lola's cafe offers very reasonably priced, yet very good food. Lot's of good seafood, and perhaps the best fish sandwich I've ever had. Order the blackened fish sandwich...you won't be dissapointed.

No hot tub, that's a needed addition, but the pool area, with the Tiki Bar is a great place to just sit, drink a top of the shelf Margarita, and enjoy the scenery.

Room Tip: Get an oceanfront room, if you ca. Falling asleep with the balcony door propped open, listening to...

Fun, laid back atmosphere, good beach location and friendly staff. Great gift shop - try the piña colada candles! Weather was too cool to enjoy outside area, but it looked very inviting. Looking forward to a warmer visit next time!

I really loved this place! I have stayed at a variety of hotels in the area and this is my my "go to" hotel from now on when I visit Pensacola.

The rooms are quiet, comfortable, clean and attractive. The view is perfect. The staff is friendly and helpful.

The hotel is literally on Pensacola beach.

The restaurant serves quality food at reasonable prices.

I'm not sure what else one could ask for.

Went for a long weekend and couldn't have been happier with our pick of hotels. The beach is beautiful! The hotel is walking distance from the boardwalk (places to eat, drink and shop), but far enough away for a quiet escape as well. The hotel is clean and well decorated - it is a beach retreat for sure. Staff is so friendly and accommodating. Food and drink at the hotel is good as well - and I thought VERY well priced. Amazing place - couldn't find a detail to complain about. I would suggest getting a gulf-view room - the view is hard to beat. We will be back, can't wait!

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for taking the time to provide us with such great feedback. Our unique location provides a calm island oasis and the best of the area at the perfect reach and we are glad you agree! Our new menu is pretty tasty and our great culinary team is working on a lovely bouquet of flavors for the spring. Hope to see you then, or sooner!

Another short but relaxing stay at the Margaritaville Beach Hotel. Not crowded and off season rate was good. Very nice atmosphere, peaceful, beautiful hotel and professional accomodating staff. All very pleasant and friendly Only problem, wish we could have stayed longer and had an ocean front room, we were on the bay side. If you are looking for relaxing getaway for a few days, this is your place, great views and balcony gulf views from the main entrance of dining area is great. Pool is beautiful too and Large umbrellas if you do not want to get too much sun. Frank and Lola's Restaurant has good food but other area restaurants are nearby if you do not want to eat in hotel. Margaritaville Gift shop has nice items but selection not as many as a Margaritaville Restuarant shop would have. Their Landshark Landing is adjacent to hotel and nice beach atmosphere there with a huge Firepit that is very nice.

Room Tip: ocean view if best but the bay view is nice too but can't see the gulf from the bay side
