We just stayed in a corner executive room on a special advertised by the hotel over the Easter weekend. The room was fabulous overlooking the beach and the pool. Check in was a breeze and everyone is so friendly. No bad attitudes allowed! And to our surprise they GAVE you things! That's right, for free. Two coupons for Landshark Lager and a coupon for an appetizer in the restaurant. May not seem like much but in addition you get free bottled water,pool towels, coffee in the lobby. Keurig coffee machines in the rooms, plenty of towels. I didn't feel nickeled and dimed like many hotels will do. No charge for parking unless you valet and that charge was only $12 a night. For Easter they had a good amount of events for kids including a buffet and egg hunt with the Easter Bunny on Sunday. We participated in a basket decorating and cookie decorating event for the kids, for free, on Saturday. The special rate really helped us in staying here. The hotel and service will be the impetus for us to go back. PS. We did not have a chance to eat in the restaurant but we did have drinks at the bar and a gumbo on Friday night at the bar that was really good. And drinks were not watered at all. We did eat at Landshark's on the Beach right next door. Good bar food. Service was kind of spotty.

Room Tip: The room we had was on the pool side. We only heard the music, strangely enough, on Sunday morning when Jimmy Buffet was being played. So if you are a very light sleeper might want to stay on the "pier" end of the hotel.

100 percent smoke free drew us to this hotel! We really enjoyed our stay at Margaritaville hotel! Upon check in, we were greeted with fantastic staff. Our gulf front room was fantastic . Loved the spacious rooms and bathrooms. Everything was nothing but positive except for Lola's cafe. The food was great but the service very very slow. We went twice and both times were slow. Took us over 30 minutes before someone came to our table and acknowledged we were even there! The food was great but that's the area improvement is needed! The lobby is very comfortable to hang out in and enjoyed the steel drums playing! We will return!!

If you read some of my past reviews, you will see that I am hard to please. I expect great service at hotels and restaurants. When it is not there, you have to tell it like it is. That is the reason for this website.
Having said that, all I can say about our 5 day stay at Margaritaville Beach Hotel can be summed up in one word. EXCELLENT!

We had about 90 people there for my daughters wedding April 11 weekend. Event manager Jessie was so helpful and knowledgeable that everything went super smoothly. Great staff, great rooms, great location, great pool. We were even blessed with GREAT GREAT WEATHER for the weekend!
We will return.

Room Tip: Corner suites are quieter and huge.

Our 2nd visit to Margaritaville. What a great hotel with attentive staff. The rooms are super clean as are all the common areas and the pool. Bed linens and towels are quite nice. Ate several meals at the restaurant and the food was good, portions extremely generous. My husband had grouper fingers which were awesome. Drinks and appetizers at the pool very good... plus I didn't feel we were getting gouged on the price of the drinks at the pool. Good bartender too!

Room Tip: King Gulf Front is the way to go!

This place is amazing. I see others reviews and some are bad and I couldn't disagree more. The sheets were nice, beds were very comfortable. Listening to the waves every night was the best! The maid service was good and they always refilled our towels, TP, Kleenex, etc....and made our beds and never had issues. The beach is very inviting and has the best sand! So soft! Lots of shells to choose from but no issues with walking. There are beach lawn chairs that you can rent for $30 a day. That was somewhat pricey but cushions are comfortable. The Horizon guys are very laid back and cordial and not too pushy so if you are a beach lover and want comfortable seating, plan to bring your own or laying on sand is always free. Lol. We did partake two days and they worked with us for family of three. The pool is nice and it wasn't crowded which was good too. The tiki bar was wonderful and bartenders were very charming. Nate was the best! He would even serve you at where you were laying when had time. He deserves a raise! It would be perfect if they had a hot tub. I'm not sure why there isn't one as it seems standard. I hope this hotel will get one as it would make it perfect! Rooms were nice, bathrooms were cool. Shower is huge. The restaurant is very good but the hotel frowns upon bringing other food into lobby area as we were instructed by bar manager when attempting to eat pizza at table since we didn't have one in room. We ate at hotel restaurant many times but needed a break from it so that was a little displeasing but nothing that wouldn't keep me from coming back. Most staff were extremely friendly and always upbeat. I like that the hotel provided towels at pool that you could also take down to beach. The taxes in this town are outrageous so prepare for this. Great place for couples or families. We had real good food almost everywhere we went so that made up for the high costs. Best place for breakfast besides hotel is Native Cafe. The best place for dinner was Flounders. Real cool place. Crabs was good to. There is a pizza place on the beach near pier that you can walk up to but not really any seating. It's very tastey but plan to eat it elsewhere. The naval aviation museum is a must see if you ever have rainy day or need break from sun. The Blue Angels practice on Wednesdays. A must see! Overall we loved Pensacola! But please get a hot tub! :)

Room Tip: Get gulf front! The best view!!
