The margarita's fell way below any reasonable expectation. EXTREMELY weak. I had two 20oz margaritas at $12 each, on a very hot day and might as well have been drinking tap water. If there was ever any tequila in those drinks it must of evaporated before it got to my table.

Food tasted okay. Rather small portions for the price, even for a tourist bar.

$80 and 1 hour later, I wish I had gone elsewhere.

Our cruise ship docked in Cozumel and my fiancé and I weren’t really feeling like going on any of the tours so we settled on hanging out at Margaritaville.

The sun that greeted us soon disappeared and the sky opened up and let down a deluge. They didn’t dampen the mood in port. The waiters were friendly and served up a great experience.

My attention was drawn to some interesting slices of watermelon being sold by waiters. It was made from jello. I had one slice, then another, then another then another....you get the picture. They were amazing! It was made from tequila infused jello. Tasted phenomenal.
After a couple slices of jello watermelon, I took to the dance floor alone. My fiancé settled for the sideline

The jello watermelon were great and it may sound like we went there just for that - heck - I wouldn’t mind. The atmosphere was great and so was the service. I had no idea of the great experience offered by Jimmy Buffett’s great vision. I’ll be sure to look up Margaritaville when I travel. I have expectations.

Hopefully there’s a girl name Blanca walking around with the delicacies. I hope....

Terrible rip off joint. Watered drinks. Bad DJ show, Jimmy should get his name off the place. Not sure I'll even buy a concert ticket after being at this place.

We have been to several Margaritaville locations (Orlando, Grand Turk, Las Vegas, Niagara Falls, and Key West) so we knew we could expect good apps and good atmosphere. Now add a guacamole cart and tequila and you've got the recipe for a good time.

Our RCCL cruise was not dampened by the torrential rain, because there was plenty of sunshine inside Margaritaville. The staff was so gracious and the cocktails tall and cool. The restaurant/bar is very clean. The gift shop is a must. We love the new location (on the pier and close to the cruise ship.) We will be back!
