We are sorry to hear a member of your party was charged incorrectly for their drink. This is unacceptable and we take this feedback seriously. Can you provide more details (name of server, date, time, guest name, etc.) by emailing us at info@margaritavillecaribbean.com. We would like to look into this more, and make changes to ensure it does not happen to future guests.

“Jimmy Buffet Sucks”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

His music sucks, his crappy chain restaurants suck, the food sucks, the drinks suck, and the restaurants are full of idiots who are too stupid to do anything creative on their vacation other than go to a chain that they have back home. This is the equivalent of going to the Hard Rock Cafe in some foreign city, why would you ever want to do that? Awful, just awful, avoid at all costs and try to see some of the 'real' Jamaica

Thank you for your feedback. Many of our guests take the time to enjoy the beauty and culture of Jamaica. In fact many visit us as they are coming back from tours or on the days when they don't have a tour planned. We love when they share their Jamaican experiences with us as they are relaxing, enjoying comfort food and drinks by the pool or ocean.

Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

I have been to others so this one didn't seem real clean and as up beat as others in other locations.

“Great Drinks and Average Food”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Nice atmosphere. Food is exactly what you would expect - average to ok and slightly overpriced.

The bartenders are the gem here, heavy pours of premium brands and great to talk to about local attractions.

Fine for kids, there is a pool and waterslide. After 10pm though it turns into a full on nightclub with a cover.

“Night life!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

If you're looking for a fun-energetic bar to go to in Ocho Rios, Margaritaville is the perfect place. There's a mixture of locals and tourists that know how to have a good time. If you need more information about their events, I highly recommend you to speak to Janelle. She helped my girls and I know every event happening at Margaritaville. Janelle is super sweet and goes beyond with her helpfulness. Thanks Janelle!!

If you want to party it up at night in Ocho Rios, go to Margaritaville. You're guaranteed a good time!!
