Loved the pools, bars, fun atmosphere and Landshark restaurant. Hated that most amenities are only open or available on Friday through Sunday.

The rooms are paper thin. Could hear noise in adjoining room all night. Could hear noise in the hallways and upstairs. Heard resort speakers playing music all night. I stayed for a night of rest and did not get any. It was absolutely disappointing.

Loved our vacation here. Came here to relax and have a great weekend. We enjoyed horseback riding, awesome nachos at the land shark, relaxing in the sun, our room view was awesome. No complaints. Love All the activities available and food options.

Check in service was really nice. At first we was amazed how cool the place was and how it something we never had been too. We notice all the places to eat but weird thing is you don’t know if is open or close. We booked a boat fireworks cruise the booking had said appetizer on the boat but it was false advertisement because, all they had was peanuts and lays chips. They did have beer. The only bat open late was the tiki hut I’ll say is okay but is so under staff with just 2 bartenders serving over 150 people. First day and night was great. We had asked a lady that was cleaning a nice restaurant dinning what are the our the next day person said all restaurants in the resort are closed for the season except land shark and JB boathouse are open. Keep in mind is not on the booking or front desk service said anything about that. We loved that they had a pool bar. It was a good place to chill but closed at 6pm. We dint like how when we booked they said they all all the things open when we got to the place only on Sunday. For the next 2 nights we only got to eat breakfast and dinner over and over and over at the landshark service was little rude. All the workers where on the phones when we needed them we just saw them on the phones. We had an ant problem we call I was asking if we can be put in another room the guys just send a maintenance worker to spray. Also the walls are super thin and I mean it so if you have kids and are taking them please take ear plugs.

We were expecting the property to be updated and it wasn't. Cobwebs all over the room. A bit of mold on the bathroom ceiling. Lots of stairs. The pools were nice.

Surprisingly family friendly. Could still use some updating but nice to be resort style and have everything there for you. Rooms are spacious but bathroom was very small, couldve allocated the space better

I liked the decor. I didn't like that most all the eating establishments were closed.

They’ve done a fab job transitioning to Margaritaville from Tan Tar A. Service was A 1

Friendly staff and plenty to do, to keep the kiddo busy & happy.

We were looking for 4 day weekend where we would feel pampered and relaxed. That's why we chose a resort and not just a hotel. What we got was severely ill after eating at the Landshark Bar and Grill, a loud and raunchy party in the room next door, and no maid service. Upon checking in we were told that if we wanted fresh towels, we would have to come to the lobby to pick them up. The required taking an elevator in our building, walking through a parking garage, taking another elevator to the lobby and waiting in line at the front desk. Not our idea of a pampered weekend. Later, we were told that limited maid service was available upon request. If you have young children, there are many things for kids to do but I wouldn't want my children hearing the language we heard when people walked down the hall or when the party was going on next door. This is a place for the spring break crowd.

I have not been to the resort since it was TanTarA and it was really nice to see the upgrades from Margaritaville. The beds were comfy, the coffee shop was great we enjoyed all of the pools and horseback riding. Some items we did experience were our TV would not stay connected to a channel for more than 30 seconds at a time. We also could not enjoy our outside deck due to loudness in the heat coming off of air conditioner units below us. We were in room 471 driftwood. The wall plug for the coffee maker did not work, there was dirt around the edges of the walls in the beds, and I found a hair on the shower wall when we initially got settled in the room.

Social Distancing hmmm. It seems like it is an excuse to not have rooms cleaned and beds made daily. Daily maid service should be done unless a customer states they do not want it. Check tv remotes.Our bathroom smelled of urine. Clean the bathroom at JB's boathouse.Get a service provider to stream music in the rooms.

I liked all of the amenities the hotel has to offer, big rooms, nice views. Expected the hotel to be a bit more updated being a Margaritaville, rooms/bathrooms need to be updated. Several of the games in the arcade were out of order. Staff was mostly friendly except one older gentleman...asked him how to get to our room from the lobby (as it is big and quite confusing) and treated me like I was a moron.

Breakfast buffet was not very good. Eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes and biscuits and gravy were basically what you get at the holiday inn for free. They did have sweet breads, fruit, waffle and omelet bar. Waffle was the best thing I had. Stick with that stuff.
