Margaritaville Beach Resort, Nassau Bahamas

Nassau, Bahamas

Virgin rating

The hotel

Everyday is paradise when you wake up with views of the ocean through the floor to ceiling windows at the Margaritaville Beach Resort in the Bahamas. With over 5,000 square miles of beaches, pools, and bars to explore, this is your ultimate destination within a destination. It’s perfect for families, with spacious suites to accommodate you all together, some even with full kitchens for those nights when you want to eat dinner alone on the balcony. The activities on offer are never ending, the water park being the pick of the bunch – and we know you’ll love the slides just as much as the little ones really! There’s also an entertainment centre to keep them occupied, with games, bowling and a movie theatre, so you can relax in the spa or grab a frozen margarita from the beachfront bar and watch the cruise ships coming in and out of Nassau. Make sure you grab a spot at the rooftop bar in time for the sunset, definitely an instagram-able moment.

Visually wow!! The decor, the colours, the attention to detail. Amazing first impression. Small in size compared to other giant resorts in Bahamas so perfect for families. Walking distance to downtown cruise ship terminal, Dunkin Donuts and McDonald’s, souvenir shops and a pharmacy seconds away. Love seeing the cruise ships outside on our balcony… Read more
Visually wow!! The decor, the colours, the attention to detail. Amazing first impression. Small in size compared to other giant resorts in Bahamas so perfect for families. Walking distance to downtown cruise ship terminal, Dunkin Donuts and McDonald’s, souvenir shops and a pharmacy seconds away. Love seeing the cruise ships outside on our balcony arrive and leave daily. Clean, white fluffy towels and staff thot will go out of their way to make your vacation wonderful. Wish the beach was bigger but the water park with a little lazy river, flow rider, rock climbing made up for that. A giant shout out to Mark at check in ( One Particular Harbour side). Read less

The resort is very beautiful. We loved our personal concierge and she made our experience! Natasha from navigation is the best!! She was very helpful with scheduling dinners and activities for us. She took care of everything for us.

Housekeeping was not consistent, limited food options, drapery cleaning charge without explanation. The grounds are well Kept and the staff is friendly, but they didn’t know the answers to our questions. We booked a photographer and the front desk couldn’t help us when he didn’t show up, they didn’t know where bingo was being held.

Had a great time having a burger and steak prepared perfectly and Ian was exceptionally attentive and made for a great evening. Go sharks! Burger and fries done expertly and a nice new York strip steak. Never ran out of anything and great conversation.
