Margaritaville Resorts

When Jimmy Buffet recorded the song Margaritaville in 1977, there was likely no way that he was aware of the megabrand that he was creating. The song and the escape to paradise idealism that it embodies have since gone on to inspire restaurants and a long line of merchandise. There’s even a Margaritaville Casino at the Flamingo in Las Vegas, and no discussion about the Margaritaville brand would be complete without also mentioning the Margaritaville resorts. That’s where we put the focus of this article, with a keen eye on the resorts that are already open and those that are in the works.

If you’re looking to "waste away" on your next trip to Florida, you can do just that at the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort. Set to open in the summer of 2015, this member of the Margaritaville Resorts family occupies a privileged oceanfront location along the legendary Hollywood Beach Broadwalk. That puts it about halfway between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Features of the resort include multiple waterfront venues, including a LandShark Bar and Grill and a Margaritaville Restaurant. Body surfing and paddle boarding are among the activities that guests of the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort can enjoy during their stay, and should some pampering be in order, the 11,000-square-foot Somewhere Spa should be able to accommodate. The 394 guest units here come in the form of beach-inspired rooms and suites that are bright and cheery. The amenities are enticing and include private balconies with waterfront views.

Some of the Margaritaville Resorts have a different kind of concept that separates them from the other properties. They are timeshare vacation resorts where you can own a slice of paradise. One such resort is found at the east end of St. Thomas at Smith Bay. Forged through a partnership with Wyndham Vacation Ownership, the Margaritaville Vacation Club St. Thomas occupies the site of the former Renaissance Grand Beach Resort and counts a pristine Caribbean beach among its amenities. Other things for guests to enjoy include a Margaritaville Restaurant, a 5 O'Clock Somewhere tiki bar and a pool area with a hot tub that is just a short walk from Water Bay. First occupancy for the 262-unit Margaritaville Vacation Club St. Thomas is estimated to be in August 2015.

Puerto Rico is another Caribbean island destination that will be home to a Margaritaville Vacation Club resort. This timeshare property will be part of the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa, which puts it near Luquillo and within easy reach of the El Yunque National Forest. Another reason to find favor with the location of the Margaritaville Vacation Club resort is the relative proximity of Fajardo, which functions in part as a jump-off point for trips to the offshore island of Vieques.
