    I have been working in the hospitality business for about five years now and know what to expect and look for. I absolutely loved staying here with my family and boyfriend and we come from Hollywood Florida and are used to the beach vibe and this Margaritaville still gave me that vibe. The pools are absolutely beautiful with cabanas and servers and live music. We had two rooms on the 5th floor and all the rooms oversee the pools and its spectacular! They have three pools even one for 21+ which was simple and calm. The decor is truly Margaritaville themed and I'm big on that because I'm a huge fan of the Margaritaville culture and take notice of all the details. Even during COVID I felt safe, everything was clean, and honestly perfect. I really liked that there's a general snacks/food store where we can buy everyday things like sodas/chips/snacks etc. I also really loved that there's a security gate front the get go to ensure safety and it was really nice to see that. From arriving to the resort to my rooms to decor to everything it was perfect and so lovely. However there's one thing that really stood out to me especially coming from hospitality/ hotel background..the staff. Hands down such friendly, outgoing, helpful, kind, funny, and great vibe people. I only came across a few people, and those that I did, were all of those I just described. These people really made the stay so much greater and enjoyable which is what hospitality is all about. Thank you Angel from the Valet area, he drove the shuttle and was so easy going and kind and helpful. Thomas from the retail store who was so nice and helpful with my purchases. Donny the bartender from the Salty bar and grill was nice and made some great margaritas, Joel from the salty bar was such a pleasure to talk to and has a huge personality in the best way. He was so friendly and easy going to talk to. I'm not sure which area Jessica works in but she took a family photo for me so we can all be included on my Polaroid camera at the fins left or right pool. And lastly the person I had the pleasure to speak and interact the most was Taylor at the front desk check in counter. SHE IS AN ABSOLUTE GEM!!!!KEEP HER AT ALL COSTS! My boyfriend and I had many questions about our stay and what there was to do around the area since we had never been before and she answered every question and was so kind and always smiled. She was the first person we came across and made such a welcoming and enjoyable welcome to our stay. Thank you all so much for making this a great stay. I hadn't gone on a family trip with my dad and step mom is 10 years and this was the first trip with my family and boyfriend together. Thank you Angel, Thomas, Donny, Joel, Jessica, and Taylor, you rock and keep up the amazing work you do everyday! <3

    We just got back from an extended weekend at the Resort. We actually stayed in a cottage this time. Absolutely loved it all. The cottage was wonderful. Comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. We spent our day time at the pool and the Salty Rim and were taken care of by the best bartenders - Juan, Tash and Danny. The pool area was clean and they were very careful of taking care of cabanas as well as pool lounge chairs (spraying cleaning stuff on them) The Friday live music at the pool was awesome Jason Link does not disappoint. Everyone was good about social distancing. The bar in the hotle at night was crowded for the live music due to covid reasons (can't sit at the bar etc). But the staff was friendly and the shops were great. We love the Sunset Walk, Estefan's is a must if you are going to eat there as well as Rock and Brews (Jalepeno poppers). Love love love this resort. Ready to go back again.

    Amazing!!!

    I recently visited the resort for my best friends bachelorette party! It was truly an amazing experience! Especially the pool bartenders, waiters and crew!! Even amidst the trying times we have with COVID, the staff MADE the stay so WONDERFUL! BIG shout out to PABLO & OSMA! they truly care about their work and brighten everyone's day they help and speak to! Truly everyone we came in contact with was amazing which made our stay so perfect.

    The perfect getaway!

    We just got back from a perfect three night stay at Margaritaville! We chose the resort to celebrate our sister’s bachelorette weekend and seriously had the best time ever. Melissa B. in their sales department helped me book the perfect room. And let me tell you, the suites are stunning! Check-in was easy and we were greeted with welcome drinks by the staff. The lobby was beautiful and super clean. You can tell the staff is doing everything they can to make guests feel safe during Covid, and we really appreciated it. We spent most of our time floating in the pool and drinking frozen drinks. We rented a cabana one of the days and it was a great decision. All of the staff we came in contact with was kind, enthusiastic and helpful, but I really want to mention Pablo and Osma. Pablo took care of us everyday we were at the pool. He brought us all our drinks and food and checked on us constantly. He made us feel welcome and did everything he could to make sure we were having a great time. Osma set up our cabana and his personality was electric. He was joyful and enthusiastic and made such a great impression. He also came by to check on us often during our visit and we loved getting to know him. We stayed at the resort almost the entire time! We ate at Euphoria for both breakfast and dinner and the food and service were great. We also grabbed snack at Provisions and it was a perfect grab-and-go. All of us have decided this will be our new staycation location! We can't wait to go back!

    I was very excited to get away with my son for a 3-night stay. I loved the fact this is a newer resort in the area. But the service was less than what I expected. It all started with the check-in. Instead of highlighting what can be done there was a lot of emphasis on what can’t be done. Other than that nothing else was explained. The internet advertises two complementary drink tickets I received nothing. The front desk set the tone for the entire experience. Housekeeping emptied my trash cans but did not clean the room. A friend stayed at the Grand Cypress and we spent more time over there as the staff was much more pleasant to be around.
