Description: Jimmy Buffetts's Margaritaville Cancun is a mecca for anyone who wants to have a good time in the company of the whole family, since his specialty is the fun of whoever views, no matter what age you have, living it in a tropical environment.There is something for everyone at Margaritaville from Caribbean food to live entertainment that is unlike anywhere in the area and also has its own margarita volcano inside the restaurant, a feature that marks us as a different place.Should be pampered by staff using Hawaiian clothing, plus it is a place where the rules and etiquette do not apply! Has a program of promotions every day of the week, with live music, trained in balloon twisting, master of ceremonies, karaoke and anything you can imagine to make your visit to Margaritaville Cancun, the most memorable, as the Fiesta is a: LIFESTYLE AT MARGARITAVILLE!!!

Staff were very friendly here but just didn't have the same atmosphere as other margaritavilles I have visited in Vegas and Florida, and the food, again I have had better in other margaritavilles, may have just been what i chose to eat, but I love margaritaville and was slightly disappointed!

Like I said staff were very friendly though...

The Volcano Nachos were excellent and would feed about 3-4 regular european people, had some fajitas also which were disgusting and left them, so 2 dishes, 2 drinks and $50. Service was very slow too.

Six of us dined here for dinner on the recommendation of my daughter who had been to one of the restaurants in/near Panama City, Florida. This particular location was not really a "happening" place. Basically we were looking for some American food and a good time. The prices were a bit high as expected but the food itself was good and plenty of it. They were not cheap on the portions at all.
Not much going on here, eventually a live singer/guitarist took the stage and that was nice, but not a place I would return soon. We took the bus from our hotel to get here, it was attached to a strip mall and next to a Bubba Gump's and an Outback Steak House. Overall we were not wowed at all by this restaurant!

Have to be real here... This is a crappy restaurant with highly overpriced drinks in one of the worst locations in Cancun. The biggest downside to this restaurant is that there is no patio and it is attached to a junky strip mall. It is dark and the whole place smelled like mildew socks. If you like frozen burgers and $19 drinks by all means waste your time (and money) here. There are many great places to go in Cancun. This is not one of them. Buffet would be disappointed if he were to eat the 'Cheeseburger in Paradise' in this restaurant.
