Lost your shaker of salt? Find it at Margaritaville Beach Resort Hollywood Beach, where the lyrics of Jimmy Buffett come to life. Here, the cocktails are handmade, the food is coastal-inspired, the rooms are lavishly laid-back, and the South Florida ocean is just steps away. To put it in simpler terms, you’re due for a margarita the moment you arrive – since on this stretch of the Hollywood Beach Boardwalk, it’s always five o’clock.
Kick off your shoes, go barefoot in the sand, and choose what’s next, after your first foray into 24-hour happy hour. Will it be St. Somewhere Spa, with its 11,000-square-feet of space for beachy treatments? The resort shops? The seven bars and restaurants or three pools? Your guestroom retreat, so you can unwind from all the unwinding? Or you can opt out of picking just one and try them all, since it’s not just salt, but all the tropical ingredients, that this tiki bar of a resort is bringing together and shaking up.

How to Get There
Having been a guest here several times, it's safe to say this place is AMAZING! The rooms are inviting and comfortable, the grounds are immaculate and the staff is extremely attentive and friendly. I must give special praise to Juan at the front desk for making sure our stay was extra special. Knowing we were there for a girls weekend and to celebrate a special birthday, Juan went out of his way to assign us a room in the perfect location. Thank you Juan!!
I also have to compliment Neil Thompson for being a fabulous bellman.
Thank you for another PERFECT weekend of relaxation...we will definitely be back!!
This resort has become one of our favorite places to go for family vacation whoch is currently two adults and two teenagers 18 & 16. It is a beautifully decorated resort with great amenities, daily entertainment venues as well as good restaurants and the infamous broad walk. There are three pools: rooftop license to chill, land shark and lone palms. There are multiple restaurants; however, the ones that we attended were Margarittaville (good breakfast) , landshark (good lunch and good view ) and JWB (outstanding dinner for steak and seafood). All of the entertainment venues had great entertainment which we enjoyed every night. There is much more that could be mentioned as this resort is loaded with things to do for families and / or couples looking for a great vacation. Lastly, some people that need to be recognized for making outstanding service- Leena, CJ & Juan Pablo @ License to Chill Pool; Bianca, Allie & Makalea @ Landshark Pool; Todd - manager @ Landshark; Dallas @ Lone Palms pool; Rachael @ the coffee shop; Margaritaville and JWB as well as the valet also had many with outstanding service as well. We would definitely go back to this resort and we highly recommend it for families or couples looking for fun, entertainment and/ or relaxation.
Bianca has a very good heart for children and knows what she is doing. She is very attentive with every kid and makes sure they feel involved. She is also very good at Mario Kart. I would recommend her to watch any child.
Fun place to stay. 2bedroom suite on ocean. 11th floor convenient for pool. Cabana boy there fantastic...spa amazing. Best one I have been to pretty much anywhere in the world. Housekeeping continues to be less than ideal, no pm clean up or turn down service. For $1300 night I would expect that. JWD great. We have stayed several times and will be back. Just wish they would make it a true 5* experience As we paid for it.
In a world were people are so quick to criticize and find the glass half empty.. I felt it imperative to take time and give a BRAVO shout out to 2 AMAZING employees at Margaritaville!
Juan at the front desk was wonderful. His professionalism and positive personality set our vacation off on the right foot :) THANK YOU JUAN!
Juan Pablo at the pool deck on floor 11 was fabulous! He was extremely attentive and took pride in his position as pool attendant. ... Because of these 2 EXCEPTIONAL employees we will definitely be back!
... on a side note :) the rooms and beds are super clean, cozy & comfy! :)
