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
The overall facility is beautiful. The room
Super comfortable and spacious. The shower took over 7 minutes to warmup which was a colossal waste Of Water! As for the pools..... if your looking for family pools there are two of them, small, with two few chairs in my opinion. As
For the adult pool.... Juan Pablo was amazing, efficient, and super on top of making sure we were comfortable at all times. Brittney at the License to Chill bar was also amazing. Our drinks were
Never empty and she always greeted us.
this guy dustin from the flowrider at the resort asked my fiancé for my phone number as we were watching the ride. it was extremely uncomfortable and unprofessional. my fiancé decided to ride anyways and was taught by a nice young man named andrew. he was very helpful and gentle about teaching and made it fun for the both of us! if we decide to come back i hope dustin is no longer working there or at least won’t be there when we come. i’d request andrew if i decided to learn how to ride
One meal..chicken was tough, chicken sandwich...bread hard, no flavor to slaw.. shrimp not great..
Service slow..never brought more water after asking 3 times...not really worth the time..better off taking pics and moving on...
This resort is Paradise. As soon as we entered the Resort the Check-In at the Front Desk employees were so friendly and the lobby "beautiful" …. we knew right away this was going to be a great week … Our Room was spacious Clean and our View was wonderful … They have three pools one is an Adult pool and two BIG family pools …. each pool had a bar and music …. The resort is right on the beach with beautiful loungers for their guests if you choose to go on the beach. At night they have a band shell on the beach with some great bands playing … and the Margaritaville Bar in the resort had a different theme every night So many restaurants and bars along the board walk on either side of the resort. We did try all restaurants and we loved " 5 o'clock Somewhere " just a casual flip flop bar on the coastal side with awesome tacos and drinks (this is also where you can take the water taxi ) …. THANK YOU TO ALL THE WONDERFUL EMPLOYEES …. fins up !!
I attended a work conference here and extended my stay with my family for vacation. Overall the resort is overpriced and overcrowded for what you get. Service is lacking and most employees are rude and acted annoyed whenever we asked questions. We waited in line at the coffee shop for 15-25 minutes most days to get our morning coffee. The pools are very nice but so crowded that you can’t really swim around, or sit back and relax as it’s difficult to find open chairs by the pool. The rooms are clean but very basic. Our family of four (2 children ages 3 and 7) was placed in a room overlooking a nudist hotel. My 7 year old daughter got quite the view of old men butts and other body parts. Obviously the resort knows about this hotel next door and should be more careful when placing families in their rooms. At checkout we were credited one resort fee ($20) to compensate for the “inconvenience”. I was actually offended by this, as it’s not an inconvenience, just simply irresponsible of the resort to ignore the fact that my children would be exposed to that. The food was hit or miss, definitely overpriced which is expected at most resorts. However I don’t expect to pay $8 for the kids Mac and cheese that was Kraft straight out of the box. The wait time at the restaurants was insane. You have to plan and build in the wait time into your daily schedule, otherwise you’ll have some hangry kids to deal with. We would not go back to this resort. Not at all my idea of a relaxing vacation. If you’re going to spend the big bucks on a resort vacation, I recommend looking elsewhere.
