“Pleasantly Surprised”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

I expected to have a decent, chain-type visit. I was pleasantly surprised at the level of service and the quality of the food. It made for the perfect end of a perfect day.

“Pleasant relaxed lunch.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Our visit to Margaritaville in Grand Cayman was very enjoyable. We noticed that all the employees appeared to be truly happy working there. The service was very good in a relaxed atmosphere.
The food was very good and the drinks as expected from a signature operation. We enjoyed a traditional margarita and it was very good. Our lunch choices were also very good and served promptly and at correct temperature.
If you wore your bathing suits, you could enjoy the swim up Rum Bar next to the water slide. See my photographs of this feature.
Very much recommended for a casual relaxed lunch.

“Bar Crawl Stopped Dead”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

We planned to spend one day of our six days in Grand Cayman doing a self directed restaurant/bar crawl through George Town. Our third stop was at Margaritaville and that's where it ended. We had so much fun that we did not feel like leaving. The primary reason for this was the bartender Livia. She was so personable and had tons of information on the best places to go on the island as well as stories of her experiences in her 11 years on the island. Livia was this way with all the patrons. The energizer bunny wishes they had so much energy.

We had the quesadilla and it was as good as the service. Everything is expensive in the Caymans, and even more true down by the port where ths cruise ships come in but this was worth every penny. The Land Shark beer is cheapest and is not that bad. You can kick it up a notch by getting your bottle of Land Shark topped off with a shot of Capt'n Morgans Spiced Rum or Lime Tequila.

The key to visiting George Town is to watch the ship schedule. You can find this info on the port of George Town website. It lists how many ships and max passenger capacity for that day. There are days when there can be as many as 6 ships in port.

We found that there really is a lot of US dollars down in the Caymans. There is so many of them that they even tape them to the walls on the inside of Margaritaville.

The best part is that now we have to go back to finish the crawl.

Thanks Livia, you are the best

“A Welcome Reprieve!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Stopped here while on a Carnival Cruise. Enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, and especially the beverages! After all the time onboard the cruise ship, my wife and I spent a good two hours listening to the music, hanging around pool, dining on delicious appetizers, and downing more than a few beers. The people who work there have one thing on their minds: making sure you don't regret a minute of your stay.
