Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was one of the most expensive properties on the beach. For the price and reviews, I would have expected a bit more. Margaritaville was just not of the same caliber of other, high end hotels that I've stayed at. If I had paid for and expected a Marriott or Holiday Inn, then I would probably have rated it a little higher. The public restrooms were badly in need of cleaning, even early in the day. Carpeting was worn throughout the hotel, and there were small signs that things are in need of upkeep. The bell staff and wait staff were exceptionally nice, but the others did not go out of their way. When I asked concierge service about live music for the evening, I was simply told to look at a card on the desk. We made reservations for their steak house during the day, which were never put through. Mattress and pillows had likely seen better days. Wait staff were nice, and the food was pretty good, but service was slower and we had to flag then down several times. Location of the hotel is centralized, and that is the biggest selling point; however, there are nice properties right near it on the boardwalk. It's all relative. If I had paid $200 a night, it would have been on par and I would have been satisfied. But for $400 per night, plus $150 resort fees and taxes, I expect a truly pleasurable experience. If I were to go back, there would believe no reason to spend more money to stay at this hotel. It did not set itself apart.

Gorgeous lobby and rooms with huge balconies. Decor is amazing—exactly how I would decorate my beach house if I had one. Roof top pool area was stunning.

Great location with great restaurants both on property and in the area. Large, bright clean rooms with a fun vibe. Beach is beautiful and clean.

Will never stay here again and will tell friends about "resort fee " scam at checkout that was close to 200 dollars. Should never hit a guest with a " hidden cost". A reasonable local tax is acceptable-over 40 dollars per day for resort fees is not. I expect these costs to be part of advertised price. I travel throughout the world-cannot remember being hit like this at check out.

Pro-Our unit was on the 14th floor North end. It overlooked both the Ocean and the Intercoastal Waterway. As a bonus it also overlooked the Rooftop clothing optional hotel next door, we got a birds eye view of all types of people sunning themselves completely nude! Con-Not the hotels fault but the area North and South of Margaritaville is sketchy with a lot homeless types hanging around the beach area. The roads are also under construction making traffic difficult.

First class resort with amazing staff. Nothing we didn’t like about it.

Margaritaville has 3 beautiful warm pools, we got an oceanfront room and the sounds of the waves was so amazing. I recommend it.

Loved all the pools and the different restaurants. Loved the views from our room on 17th floor. Our bed was very comfortable. Staff very friendly. Public spaces not very clean...especially bathrooms. Furniture upholstery needs to be changed. Not much to do but eat and drink....hardly any alcohol in their expensive drinks!

Excellent customer service! Fun atmosphere. Felt like stayin a high end resort, each employee made you feel like you were most important person at the resort

Margaritaville resort is awesome. From the moment we stepped out of our car rental into the beautiful lobby we were greeted with the front desk and I’d like to do a special shout out to manager Kevin who was so professional, friendly and helpful to us during our stay. Kevin you are making a great representative of Margaritaville. We enjoyed the food, the beach, all the courteous staff. What can I say except thank you!

Rooms not very clean. Hotel location great. Overall average experience, expected more.

Hotel was Great Staff was excellent, great location.

We enjoyed our Monday-Thursday stay at Margaritaville which was the perfect time to avoid some of the crowds and larger family groups. Food on site leaves a little to be desired of both in terms of price and quality but it gets the job done. Don't let the Hollywood marketing fool you though, the boardwalk is not as robust as it claims to be and after a few days you'll be wanting to travel off site for meals and necessities more and more.

Nice place I would come back great view from my room, nice pool areas, nice beach
