“Not my kind of thing”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

So after hearing so many great things about Margaritaville during our stay at the RIU montego bay- we decided to get the shuttle bus into town and go for a 'great night out'.
However when we got there at around 10pm it was packed and sweaty and extremely dark. People were quite unfriendly and were hanging around the sides not dancing.
The drinks were overpriced and it just wasn't what we expected at all. Nobody seemed to be enjoying themselves.. Was a real shame especially as we paid 10 dollars to get in,.

Thank you for visiting. We're sorry to hear that your experience at Club Ville (Margaritaville's night time alter ego) was anything less than enjoyable, and apologize for not delivering on your expectations when you visited. 10:00 p.m. is the time when the transformation into a night club takes place, and generally the peak of the party vibes comes a bit later. We have shared your comments with our team for review, as we are always looking to improve on the experience for our patrons. Thank you again for visiting.

“Food OK, Water Sports Available, Right On The Water”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Restaurant is located right on the water. There is plenty of activity if you want to get into the water. The service is good, the drinks are good, and the food is average. The price
is reasonable. Outside seating on the deck allows one a good view of the ocean and usually a good breeze while one is dining. Can be noisy at times but usually just people
having a good time. Younger crowd hangs out here but they are well behaved and friendly.

“A lot of fun”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We went to margaritaville off the cruise we were on and was a lot of fun. They have water slides and water trampolines that are at no charge, just gotta buy a drink or food. Water is crystal clear And warm!

“Fun, booze and music!”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Very touristy. However, its just a fun place to be. It has its own water park during the day and at night live music and DJ,s. Fun atmosphere, classic burgers and bar food. Obviously great Margeritas! They are also very generous with the size of the drinks. Not sophisticated if thats what you are looking for but if you just want light hearted fun its got it! You meet people from other hotels which is fun and keeps it lively.

Thank you for stopping by! Good food and great vibes are just two of the things that make us the choice chill out spot in Montego Bay. It’s also good to hear that you chose to come and have a great time with us as well as enjoy our menu offerings, especially the margaritas which are a key aspect of our business. We believe that letting your hair down and just "wasting away" is a big part of what the Margaritaville experience is all about, not to mention making new friends. Please do not hesitate to stop by again when next you’re in town!
