I’ll start by saying that every single employee we encountered was friendly and helpful! The view was gorgeous as was the beach. The floors were grimy feeling and my feet always felt dirty. The shower was nice but also could’ve been cleaner. The rooms are all tiled as is the bathroom. This is an engineering boo boo unless there’s good insulation between the walls. We went for a couples relaxing retreat. The first day was nice and then..a young family with 2 babies checked in beside us. I have three kids-now teenagers so I get it-but, the children screamed non stop! I don’t mean occasionally whined or cried. They actually screamed as loud as they could with their tiny little voices all hours of the day. The mom sang constantly and I had to wonder if they’d ever heard the term “inside voice”. Middle of the night was screaming and at the crack of dawn they woke us up screaming. Not relaxing. You could hear people all down the hall-coughing, talking, etc. it was the loudest place I have ever stayed in my life. Frank n Lolas was the only restaurant open. I looked at the menu online and decided what to order. We went to the lobby and ordered. It cost $40 for eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast. My husband got a tea. The menu said each entree was $10 but they rang up 40% more!! The bartender said sorry I guess I need to add the updated menu. He didn’t offer to edit the bill. We were charged 18% gratuity but received no service. A guy brought us paper plates with our food and left. I got the same food plus some at a neighboring property in 2018 and it was included. You’d think margaritaville would have something besides basic half n half coffee creamer but they did not. I’m not a hotel snob. It’s just I expected a good variety of food options, availability of good coffee, some peace and quiet and to not be price gouged (magically changing food prices and gratuity without service).

From the minute we pulled up, Scott greeted us with the biggest smile proclaiming, "Welcome to Paradise!" As a 70s baby, I was emotionally transported to the days of Fantasy Island. That would have been a unique apex to any vacation, but amazingly, things only got better from there! The Margaritaville Beach Hotel Staff has hospitality down to a science. I was actually left despondent when it was time to leave the beauty of our Gulf View room, after having one last cup of coffee on the balcony. I'm counting the days until we return for another stay!

From the moment we checked in (early) we knew it was going to be a nice stay. The lady at the fron desk was very nice, the resort had our two rooms ready and there was a door between the rooms, as requested. They even had a bellman, Adam, who helped with all our luggage, and we had way too much stuff. The rooms were very nice, great views, and really nice showers. Even the parking was convenient under the hotel. Then when we went to the beach and we all knew, we found the perfect spot for our family.

Donnie, Jackson, Scott and the ladies at the desk were very polite and had a welcoming demeanor. The service was great, the view from the room was spectacular and the hotel was very clean. Overall, the experience was wonderful and I’ll definitely be back.
