Visited this resort for one night with my family including small children. The pool was awesome. The beach was great. The rooms were amazingly clean and white and the faux wood tile floors are perfect for the beach. Definitely want to go back for a longer visit.

We stayed here during Christmas break and we were there for New Year's Eve. It is a beautiful Hotel - so clean and taken care of. The rooms were so "beachy" and clean. Definitely made us feel like we were on vacation. The weather was bad when we were there so we didn't get to use the pool or beach...

Simply one of the best short stays imaginable. Chilled, laid back and non fussy service. We all loved it. The beach was so clean. The hotel rooms spacious and clean. The omelettes in the morning were great!! Would definitely go back. Hotel now undergoing renovations which was surprising because we really enjoyed all of it.

I'm not the biggest Jimmy Buffet fan, but my friend loves everything Margaritaville (hotel, restaurant, you name it), so when she found out this year was the inaugural "Run to Margaritaville" half marathon, we absolutely had to run it, and we absolutely had to stay here. I guess I was expecting something very kitschy, like parrots everywhere or Hawaiian girl...

Second time at this hotel and our experience is just as wonderful as the first. The front desk associate, Dorian, was so professional and sweet. She even helped me with pineapple pins. Thank you! Our room was on an upper floor, facing the gulf. The extra that you pay for gulf view is worth it. Morning coffee on the balcony,...

The hotel is beautiful, all rooms have water views. Our room had gulf view and was decorated in the most beautiful Tommy Bahama style. Just very classy, not tacky at all. the bed was extremely comfortable, but they might want to update the sheets as our did have "pills" but still very comfortable.

We were surprised to hear that this hotel will be closed for renovations starting in November 2016, because honestly it's in pretty good condition! We enjoyed our stay more than we expected. Gulf views are gorgeous - but I would rather have had sliding glass doors instead of the loud, heavy door that blocked half the balcony when opened. The...
