“Hopping place!”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

I'm not a swimmer but had to do the waterslide! Souveneer blender drinks are 23.00 U.S but do come filled with drink.

“Loud Music, Good Margaritas and Tasty Shrimp”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Montego Bay was a stop on a recent cruise and having been there several times decided to just ride the hop-on, hop-off bus. One of the stops was in an area called "Hipville." To be completely honest I have always avoided places like Margaritaville because of the loud vibe and others talking about the outrageous prices of the food. There really wasn't any other place that looked as good and a margarita sounded good so decided to go in and see if I had really been missing anything.
The young lady who was the hostess must have seen the look on my face when she took us into the main area, the music was so loud it felt like the walls and floor were shaking. She quickly asked if it was too loud and I nodded my head. She lead our party of two to another room that was more like a covered deck area where the music was still loud but not deafening.
I was curious about the menu as others had told me of outrageously high prices. Maybe the menus have been revised but I didn't find the prices out of line for a tourist area. We ordered the "gold" margaritas and an order of Lava Shrimp. The drinks were brought out quickly and am glad to say they were very good. Just the right mix of a good grade of tequila with fresh lime juice served in a frozen mug with a light dusting of salt around the rim. The shrimp were also not only tasty but nicely presented on half of a coconut and seasoned with a tasty sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds. Both the drinks and the food were enjoyable and along with the nice view of the ocean made for a pleasant light lunch. The margaritas were so tasty that a second one was difficult to resist.
The table service was surprisingly good given the number of people and the wait staff were friendly and efficient. You could spend all afternoon watching people and the water activities just below. In all truth the music actually did sound better but then I had drank two margaritas so my judgment may have been impaired.
I asked for the bill and didn't think the price was at all out of line. The drinks were $7.95 each and the Lava Shrimp was $13.00. I'm not sure I would make a special effort to return to this establishment but in the future I will visit another of the Margaritavilles to enjoy another of their frozen delights.

It was heartwarming to read your review, thank you for such positive feedback and for stopping by. We are beyond happy that you enjoyed the service, food and beverage and water amenities that we have to offer. We have revised our pricing structure and we are glad you noticed. The atmosphere at Margaritaville can be a little rowdy on cruise days but also mellow and laid back. The lava shrimp is a new item on our menu and we have passed on your comment to the kitchen staff so they can know you enjoyed it. Thank you again for stopping by and we hope to see you again soon

“Fun Place”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

I should have worn my bathing suit! There is all kinds of fun to be had here if you want to go in the water. The food is so-so, the service good but the fun is in going down a slide into the water and jumping on the float. When you go, be sure to go in your bathing suit!!! Ah, to be young and attractive! What a blast they were having!

Place was average. At the end of the hip strip. We went with a licensed cab driver that the resort recommended.
