I expected clean and polite, it just seemed like it hadn't been deep cleaned it a long time. And everyone seemed to busy or like you were a burden to get a drink. Cool spot on the beach but overall not worth the hype.

Was very fun while we were there when we got off the ship. Got 2 free Margaritas when we bought a Jimmy Buffet shirt. DJ was fantastic calling people out on the dance floor. This was better then any excursion and cost a lot less.

This is were you can eat, drink, lay out on the beach, swim in the pool dance, shop and mingle with the locals. I loved it, bring the kids as well. There is something for everyone to enjoy!

Location was in the port so cruise ships are right outside. I'm a major parrothead and never miss a chance to go to a Margaritaville, but I'll never go back here. I was here for lunch and Service was horrendous, atmosphere missed the "chill" aspect...More

When in Paradise (Jamaica) you have to get a cheeseburger right.....the food is good a bit over priced but that happens on vacation the atmosphere was great fun time

Stopped cold drink after shopping. A typical Margaritaville complete with a water slide and lots of music and dancing,. It is located right on the beach. Free Margarita if you buy a t-shirt in the attached gift shop!

Just so not think the prices are worth it! The food is really just OK! Not terrible but doesn't have me dying to go back or for more! The drinks were decent Save your coins and enjoy the local cuisine. That's way more worth it.

We just had food and drinks there which were both great!! There's no entry fee, loungers on the beach are $12 USD.
How deep is the water when you go down the water slide into the ocean? I'm not the best swimmer but I can tread water & float😂

Our water slide actually enters our pool which is 8' deep. We do have life jackets available for your safety. Have a great day.
