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
After a lot of research, we chose this hotel to celebrate my being 5 years cancer free. What a great choice! Upon checkin, we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite. I have to admit I have never stayed in a nicer room. Our mouths dropped when we walked in. A living room with a table with a balcony overlooking the pool and beach, our two boys had their own room with 2 beds and a bathroom (my son was amazed that he got 5 pillows to himself) and the master bedroom?? Oh my goodness.....I literally cried when I left. I would pay anything to live there. The colors and decor are stunning, and there is a sliding glass door out to the balcony overlooking the pool and beach. The closet and bathroom are gorgeous as well. But again.....waking up every morning to that view was just breathtaking. I cannot thank the woman at the front desk enough for upgrading us like that. It turned a family vacation into a romantic vacation since my husband and I had our own room! I cannot say enough about our weekend, and cannot wait to come back. It has become our favorite vacation spot, and we couldn’t believe it was only a $12 Uber ride from the airport! So easy to get to! Thank you so much for making such a huge milestone in my life a truly memorable one. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!
The steakhouse in the hotel was excellent. Great Red Snapper for those fish lovers and for us meat eaters the fillet was excellent. Will stay at this hotel next visit as well! It appears to be an incredible hotel. Only visited steakhouse this visit, however will fix that next time.
Awesome place! Always something to do, live music was great, being on the beach was awesome, besides being a little pricey but so was everybody else in the area. The only bad part was parking.. Very expensive!
I expected a lot more of this resort. Margaritaville has a great reputation and I’ve been to some pretty spectacular Margaritaville resorts. This one seemed a bit small and tired. Nothing exciting really.
Went last week with three buddies on vacation in Florida. Great location right on the beach, good food and good drink. Just there for lunch but will be coming back to stay for a few days. Looks like a lot of fun.
