The restaurant is old. It does have a pool with slide and beach views. There are no inflatables in the water like other margaritavilles. Our burger was not good at all and extremely over priced.

Margaritaville is consistent with what you'll find in any other destination. Expensive and full of tourism. Some things I like. They have a nice beach. It is clean and in it's own separate area so you can enjoy it without feeling obligated to spend a...More

Cruising on the Carnival Vista last week we made a stop in Ocho Rios - we decided to spend our day at Margaritaville instead of booking an excursion. I wish now we would've booked an excursion. My son's brand new Iphone 7+ was stolen while...More

This particular Margaritaville in Ocho Rios had a spectacular beach. The food was also incredible. If you have the opportunity to spend an afternoon here, I would highly recommend it. This place has food, activities, great drinks and amazing staff.

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.

Absolutely none to use the pool area/slides….my only suggestion is to avoid paying for the beach chairs…… which cost $12 USD…more than likely you’d be able to just cop a squat after someone else has paid for one and they’ve... More
