“Wonderful Beach Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013

The Margaritaville Beach hotel at Pensacola Beach was a beautiful hotel with beach colors and pictures of Jimmy Buffet throughout. The front desk staff was welcoming and very friendly. The hotel is located with views of the bay as well as the gulf. We stayed in a gulf front room with a balcony so we could sit on the balcony and enjoy the beautiful view. it was a short walk to the shopping area so we didn't need to drive anywhere. We ate lunch at the pool bar where the bartender was friendly and energetic. He ran back and forth from the bar to the dining room inside to bring food. Breakfast in the dining room was great as well. Our room had full size amenities with a Keurig coffee maker with a variety of coffee and tea. The shower is large and the countertops in the bathroom are a beautiful sea blue. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay here again!

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view. Our room on the fifth floor facing the gulf was beautiful.

I love this hotel! The views from any room are spectacular! I think I have stayed in them all :) If you are looking for rest and relaxtion...calm and quiet..this place will help you clear your head. In my book this is the best hotel on Pensacola Beach! Nice little bar next door on the beach with beach activities for grown-ups.

I was very impressed with this hotel. The rooms are spacious and look fairly new. The beds are comfortable and have nice duvets and great pillows. They stock the bathroom with lots of towels, which is always nice.The views on either side of the hall are water views. The staff is very attentive. The only thing that bothered me was the restaurant. They seemed short staffed at breakfast, and therefore, even though there were many tables available, we had to wait over 15 minutes to be seated. Other than this, I would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for the first time over spring break, 2013. Cleanliness, service and vale were very good. We liked that the rooms have tile floors that look like driftwood planks, instead of carpet. This makes it seem much cleaner than typical beach hotels. Nice amenities, including crisp linens, flat screen tv and a Keurig coffee maker in each room. Beds were comfy, despite the loud rustle from the plastic mattress pads. This hotel could do just a few things to make it truly great. First, upgrade the stock of sweeteners and creamer in the room. The one pack of sugar, one pack of sweet and low and one pack of Powdered creamer is sub par. (To their credit, they did not charge me for a cup of milk each morning to take up for our coffee.) Second, having some festive Carribeam-style music playing in the lobby area would make it much more festive. Finally, offer some activities in the lobby similar to what is offered on a cruise, and you could easily appeal to the cruise crowd, too. All in all, I'd readily stay here again.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for taking the time to provide such valuable feedback. I do aplogize for the lack of coffee condiments in your room but I'm glad we were able to provide a better option for you. We do have a steel drummer that plays every Friday night and a host of daily activities. With such a seasonal location, the more favorable activities happen in the warmer months. We certainly invite you back to take part in those events. Please visit the Events section of our website as it is updated often with new and exciting family fun. We look forward to your return and will do everything in our power to make sure it is our standard "amazing stay" for you. Please email me directly for your next reservation Krandle@margaritaville.com.

We stayed at Margaritaville Beach Hotel for one night during a return trip from a Disney vacation. Being a Parrot Head, it seamed to be the right thing to do. When we entered the lobby, I found not a Margaritaville restaurant feel, but the feel of a very relaxed, full service hotel.

The decor is light, airy and comfortable. There is nothing pretentious about the building, but all finishes are high quality. Service is excellent at the small shop, the single restaurant and both bars.

The rooms are wonderful. From the tile floors, high quality bed linens and a wonderful shower, there are no complaints concerning the rooms. We had a Gulf front room, but the bay view rooms provide a view of the bay, the bridge to Pensacola Beach and the hotel zone to the east.

Just a great first visit and we look forward to an extended visit in the coming months.

Room Tip: Gulf view rooms are very good.

The plus? Chelsea, Crystal, Nathan.... Top associates at the hotel. The misses? Inconsistent service.... 3 of the 6 days our housekeeping service was excellent... The other half.... Poor. No toiletries, no coffee replacement, trash left behind, wood floor not vacuumed... Bar? Pete made good drinks, Nathan however actually worked the pool area.... And was always helpful. So 1 of 6 days we had pool food and beverage service. The 3rd bartender poured a kettle and tonic vs the kettle and club... Yuck. Newspapers? Left by our door 1 of 6 days. Breakfast? Avoid the omelette... Small and dry. Slow service 50% of the time...and they were never really busy. Food...Wings .... Very good. Burgers...blah. Room service is a great deal at only 18% gratuity added. The room decor is bland and there was not one comfortable chair in our room. Make sure, if you pay for a balcony room to stay on the 4th floor up.... They tried to place us on the second floor but to look at a parking lot and listen to the roar of car engines all night for 6 days..... Not exactly the gulf view balcony room we paid extra for... Thank goodness Chelsea moved us to a higher floor. I'm pretty sure we won't stay there again... Overpriced and in need of retraining their staff... They should consider Chelsea, Crystal and Nathan as the 'bar' to be reached by all associates. You know... I don't think I ever saw a manager on site during our entire stay. Mr Jimmy Buffet.... Check out your namesake!
