On the beach in Pensacola
Margaritaville Beach Hotel is located on a quiet stretch on the public Pensacola Beach. A trolley stop right outside of the hotel connects to nearby restaurants and hotels from May through Labor Day. Pensacola is known for offering some of Florida's best beaches, as well as historical attractions, including Victorian mansions and museums celebrating the US Navy and Marine Corps.
The first hotel to open under the Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville brand, the Margaritaville Beach Hotel offers a relaxed, tropical atmosphere right on a beautiful stretch of sandy coastline. The hotel's white and blue color palette, wicker furnishings, and palm trees add to the beachy atmosphere, as do the seasonal live entertainment, and a poolside Tiki bar. Rooms are sophisticated, clean, and airy with huge balconies, flat-screen TVs, and free Internet. The sweeping views of the white sand beach and Gulf of Mexico, viewable throughout the property and from the sleek outdoor pool, are a highlight. This hotel is definitely unique for an area full of chain options, but some guests complain about jellyfish on the beach.
