The first Margaritaville Beach Hotel opens June 28 on the barrier island of Pensacola Beach in the Gulf of Mexico. After two years in the making, Jimmy Buffet’s 162-room hotel is giving guests a new way to look at lodging.
According to the hotel’s website, room rates range by season and dates. From January through May, rooms range from $219-$319/night; $299-$399 from end of May through early-September; $219-$319 mid-September through Nov. 27; and $179-$279 from November 28 through Jan. 1.
Inspired by the lyrics that made margaritas a way of life, the hotel’s atmosphere gives guests a ‘license to chill’ on a tropical island-esq property. Guests will be served fresh Florida orange juice upon arrival, and music, activities, relaxation and dining serve as the headlining act for the duration of your stay. You can lounge on the pool deck, hang out at the beach or dine at the restaurant all while sipping some of Margaritaville’s most popular cocktails.
The Land Shark Landing beach pavilion offers a “no shirt, no shoes, no problem” policy in an open air setting that sits right on the Gulf of Mexico. Coming soon: The official Margaritaville Restaurant, which will be opened in the next phase of the development.
“Having grown up in Mobile, Pensacola Beach was the first Florida I ever knew, long before I headed to Key West,” said Buffett in a press release. “I am a child of the Gulf Coast, and it is great to be coming home and making a commitment to Pensacola and the Gulf Coast, especially at this time. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but we have a great bunch of people to do it. Fins Up Pensacola, here we come.”
