Spent three nights at Margaritaville while in town to celebrate a family wedding, and this hotel exceeded expectations! We had a third-floor gulf view room. Super-clean and comfortable, and seemed larger than your average hotel room. King-size bed was comfortable, plenty of storage and space for our stuff. Tile floor, no carpet...but genius as a way to control the sand...

Excellent property and value for the scale of the amenities and experience. The staff is great. Direct access to the beach, great views, clean, and close to everything on the island. Great food in the restaurant, great atmosphere in the bar and on the pool deck. Great location for families.

This is a late review. We stayed at Margaritaville in July 2015 and we absolutely fell in love. The water is amazing.

This hotel is the nicest one on Pensacola beach. While the others are really just basic hotels, this one actually has a resort-like feel to it with nice amenities and a great atmosphere.

We had a king sound view room on the top floor. It was a beautifully designed room with a large bathroom. The balcony was nice for morning coffee, and we loved having a kuerig in the room.

This hotel has a lot to love. But it has some strange downsides. The hotel restaurant is awesome but they failed to dim the lights for the dinner hour so it was like eating in a bus stop. And when I asked them to dim the lights they acted like I was nuts. And then a strange lights up/down war...

Veeger, Thank you for choosing to stay with us recently and for taking a few minutes to give feedback.
