Margaritaville is inside a shopping mall, Island Village. We stopped in here for a quick drink and to rest for a few minutes.

“Overpriced American food”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

You are in Jamaica. Eat the wonderful, fresh lovely island food, and forget about over priced chicken wings, and weak drinks.
I only eat at "local" restaurants, so I give back to the people and not some "chain" of American vibes.
This place charges extra for everything. I will never eat here, ever.
Go to Scotchies, have some real jerk chicken in the best ambiance of outdoor dining.
Fridays they always have a huge pot of some soup. Conch chowder and pumpkin soup, are (2) of my favorites.

“Night out dancing”
Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

We wanted a night out off the resort and it was a great night! Yes the drinks were pricey but we expected that. It was a mixture of tourists and locals.....the locals were definitely there to make sure the tourists had a fun night dancing and chatting. The people in Jamaica are very friendly. Like anywhere you vacation you should always be careful though.

“Nice to visit, had to get a souvenir shot glass!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

We went rather early so not much going on. As expected, drinks were kinda pricey. Neat place to see if you're a Parrothead. Nice little gift shop too.

Thank you for visiting and for this review it is welcomed news from a fellow Parrot head! We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed the food when you visited us, and thank you for making us a part of your vacation. Some of our days are more “high energy” than others, where a mass of people will stop by for a visit (while others are more relaxed and serene depending on the time of day and year). Thank you again for visiting and please come back soon.
