“Fun Place”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Was a fun place, but expensive. They have an awesome water slide into the ocean. I didn't try it, but it looked really fun. Only went there during the day, but its supposed to be a great place to go in the evenings, especially on ladies night.

“Exceptionally fun!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We have been to many Margaritavilles, and the food is consistently good every time. The ones on the beach always have spectacular views, fun activities going on, but this one is right on the ocean! We ordered our food, and then the kids took off to the water slide which is off the back of the restaurant and shoots you right into the water. There are lots of inflatables like slides, rafts, and inner tubes to swim out to, and play on. My kids are strong swimmers, and ages 10 and 14. They had a blast! I would not recommend this for little children, unless they are swimming with their parents. We had as much fun as the kids did, by sitting on the deck and watching. My son ordered the club sandwich, which was huge, and yummy! My daughter had a burger, and loved that. The stamp 'Cheeseburger in Paradise' on too, which is a cute touch. My husband had a salad, and I had quesadillas which were both good. The only downside was, we went for a late lunch, around 2:00pm thinking we would miss the crowd, but we were wrong. They had to seat us in a back room which was quite dark until a table opened up. That was for about 15 minutes. Not really a big deal, as we were not in a hurry. I would expect this place to be busy all the time, as the atmosphere is awesome!

“Spectacular views...”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

This is the spot for fun and excitement. It has a tri-level outdoor bar/dinning on each level with spectacular views. The third level has a full service bar and deck that has water slide that shoots you right out into the ocean!! The frozen drinks are weak, but the margaritas on the rocks---awesome!!!

Our water slide is one of our main attractions at our Montego Bay location, and it’s always a good way to get to the trampolines where you can either relax or go a few rounds. Our upper deck is excellent for taking in the wonderful view of the ocean and snapping pictures of a spectacular sunset. Your comments regarding the drinks have been noted. Thank you for visiting and for your positive review, and please don’t hesitate to pay us a visit the next time you come to Jamaica.

“Wow hanging over the Carribean Ocean”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

The tube slide into the ocean with cheers from all the levels of on lookers was fun! Good drinks and loved watching the people jump and climb on the floating bounce things they swam out to.
