Margaritaville Beach Hotel
Ranked #2 of 10 Hotels in Pensacola Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We stayed the 1st half of our trip at another hotel which was nice too, but very quiet, whereas Margaritaville had more of a 'scene' to it that was fun. Great pool with a view of the ocean, a tiki bar with awesome bartenders who made amazing drinks, and a beach bar & restaurant next door with live music on weekends. The restaurant on site was good as well (separate review). We traveled with another couple, and while there were of course kids around, we didn't notice too many, and they all seemed well behaved to us. Our Gulf Front room was very nice, my only complaint would be the beds / mattresses are really high off the floor. I'm on the shorter side and it was a bit of the pain getting up and down, with some bumps and bruises from the frame. But, really not a big deal, and the great view and huge bathroom more than made up for that. Also it was nice to be able to charge things to our room anywhere on the property - no need to carry wallets or purses! Keep in mind you have to pay to rent beach chairs/umbrellas on the beach (we did at the 1st hotel as well, same company I think) it was $30 all day for a pair, but they were actually pretty nice ones and we thought it was worth it. Overall we had a great stay here, and would definitely go back to this hotel if in the area again.

Nice hotel - very clean! It's a great place to stay for a weekend getaway at the beach. My only complaint is the air condition in the rooms is kind of funny - wish it got the rooms a little cooler. Everything is very clean, the staff is definitely very nice, and the bar is great! This was our second time staying at this hotel, and we would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: We got a beach front room with a balcony, and it was nice to sit out in the morning and evenings! E...

Margaritaville Pensacola is without question one of the best hotels I have stayed at! This is a gorgeous, clean, well-appointed facility. If you have any doubt about going, don't hesitate another second! We got a gulf view wrap around balcony suite, which was a little extra $, but worth it! We went for a weekend, checked in around 7pm Friday evening, I think I was at the counter maybe 2 minutes total before heading up to the room. Check in staff and valet were all friendly and welcoming. Check in had beverages in the lobby, all complimentary. (water, juice, coffee)
The room was amazing! Large and spacious, refrigerator and Keurig coffee maker included, which makes a hotel stay a lot more enjoyable! The bathroom was about the size of a garage! Large tub, shower, double sink, and a toilet in a separate room. The bed was comfortable, and temperature was just right. We did have to call for Housekeeping the next day to come, but that's only because we were in the room when they originally were making their rounds.
The beach is a close walk with rented chairs at a daily or hourly price. The nice thing about this hotel is that you can directly leave the beach and go through the elevator in the parking garage underneath to your room---no tracking though a lobby!
The lunch we had Saturday was amazing! Generous portions, served quickly, and hot and fresh. The staff in the restaurant was beyond nice and super quick! Sure the resort food is a little pricey but again, you pay for not leaving the resort. Pool bar service had no lines, friendly bar tenders, and live music on Saturday! This is definitely kid friendly which is nice. No smoking on the entire property, including the pool deck. Plenty of chairs and umbrellas. The pool is well set up, 2nd floor, where locals can't break in. Complimentary towels are also included.
Check out was a breeze and took maybe 10 seconds at the front desk. A souvenir shop is also on property so bring a little extra spending money. In theory, one never has to leave the resort and can have all their needs met; however, we chose to eat dinner off property just to explore.
I would recommend to anyone and will be back!

I stayed at the Margaritaville Beach Hotel this week and it was great. I got a room with a view of the Gulf. The room had a large balcony with two chairs and a small table perfect for having an evening cocktail or a cup of coffee in the morning. Sitting on the balcony it was not uncommon to see dolphins swimming in front of the hotel. The room was very big with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was huge and the shower was one of the largest I have seen in a hotel. Keurig coffee maker with an assortment of coffee and tea in every room. The entire hotel is non smoking.

Checkin was very quick and the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. There is plenty of free parking for guests, a large parking garage under the note; and a large parking lot. The lobby is beautiful very tropical with a Margaritaville gift shop.

We had breakfast at Frank and Lola Loves Pensacola cafe and breakfast was very good as was the service. We also had drinks at Landshark Landing located just across the parking lot and right on the beach. Great Boat Drinks! The beach access is good and the beach is beautiful.

There are a lot of things to do in the area. We went to the Naval Air museum, best aviation museum I have visited and got to watch the Blue Angels practice while sitting on the flight line. It was awesome!

I would recommend this hotel if you are planning a trip to Pensacola. I plan to go back.

Facility was like new, architecture was impressive, exceptional attention to detail all around. Already planning our next visit only longer this time. White power sand was way different from South Padre Island and Galveston. Pool area was a pleasant surprise with Tiki Bar and Jimmy Buffet tunes.

Great hotel right on the beach. Best beds I have ever slept on in a hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Loved the Trolly ride. And the beach at the hotel was beautiful. Food was great and the service was great. Only problem I had was not enough luggage carts. But overall it was great, but with a price.

Beautiful hotel!!! We had our destination wedding at Margaritaville and everything was perfect. We stayed for 5 nights in a Gulf Front Executive Suite. The room was clean, large, and comfortable! The view is outstanding. We decided to have our wedding here because the hotel is large and gorgeous. The staff is fabulous and accommodating. The food is out of this world!
The hotel fits anyone from singles to couples to families. Yes, it is kid friendly which was great for the children that were traveling with us.

Our ceremony was on the beach in front of Landshark Landing and our reception was at Landshark. The staff was so helpful and the food was fantastic. We had a great time! Jessie did an outstanding job with coordinating our event and making everything perfect!!

This hotel is perfect for just about anyone. It is clean and comfortable. The views are priceless. If you want a relaxing on the gulf this is the place to be! There is great music around the pool and then head over to Landshark for dinner and you can get great food/drink and usually great music as well! Yes....you may think it is pricey but anywhere else on the gulf will be just as expensive so why not go with the most beautiful hotel on the beach!

Room Tip: I would always go with a gulf view! If the executive suites are in your budget its the way to go! We...
