With its picturesque open air setting incorporating natural spring lagoons and beautiful flowering trees, this complex has the remarkable feeling of being almost at “One With Nature”. It manages to recreate the ambiance of a picturesque Caribbean village setting, yet at the same time housing retail and entertainment facilities.

“Only two things worth checking out”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

I'll admit, my husband and I aren't big on shopping so we didn't go into any of the stores. Most looked like any other port shopping center. BUT, Devon's Ice cream is worth the trip alone!! YUM! We had ice cream four times the week we were there. So delicious and they are so nice. Unique flavors and then get a double scoop and mix them up!
Also, there is a guy out front with a coconut stand. He sells fresh coconut water (or adds rum!)m beer and other drinks. He is SUPER nice so go talk to him and hang out. We'd walk over and grab a coconut water after a hot day and he always remembered us.

“Casual walk through”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

Visited this location during a nice day in Ocho Rios town. The village has a lot of scenic views from colorful shops gardens. The atmosphere is very tropical and inviting. Unfortunately dying this period in November there was not much to enjoy as most of the shops were closed or out of business. The idea and potential here is amazing as a tourist stop for shopping and enjoying amenities. Some of the shops that were open presented prices that I consider expensive in US$ while others had the same or similar items at less. Therefore, look. Around before deciding. Stop by Devon's House for ice-cream it is simply the best and Margareta Ville is always a good stop for drinks music and swim. All and all good for a stroll or to take some pictures. Again depending in the season and whether it not a cruise ship docked this will be touch and go in terms of shopping and enjoying the grounds.

“margaritaville in ocho rios jamaica”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

when the ships come in and dock at the harbour, it is very busy and you can spend at least 2 to 3 hours in margaritaville, but you will have to check or enquire about when they come in, because it would not be such a good experience. you can really enjoy yourself and spend time with your family and friends, when the shops are open. i went in June 2013, and we enjoyed ourselves,.
