    Front desk staff have a lot to be desired. They couldn’t find my reservation even with my email proof & itinerary number and could not speak enough English to understand I needed to just store my bag until they could figure it out, so I ended up having to pay our driver 2 more hours while we rode around until they could. One woman ( who was the only check-in staff there at the time ) was talking to her co-worker instead of greeting guests waiting in line. The restaurant staff however are very attentive & friendly. They go above & beyond, especially Margarete. Food was good. Property was in need of some updating & painting- it was not what I expected from a Margaritaville. It looked like an old motel with some cute decor & lighting fixtures & the best of the furniture in the lobby. They did not even have beach chairs/ umbrellas/cabanas set up. There were 3 crappy ones on the entire beach. Be ready to bust a move as soon as you are not paying anymore. They immediately cut your bracelets instead of just dekeying them. We felt like trespassers waiting for our ride after checkout. You’d think they’d treat you like their guests until you left the property and want to to keep spending $ in their restaurants & gift shop. Even the little refreshment juice guy looked over & totally bypassed us. Very disappointed & will not be staying at a Margaritaville again.

    The hotel is good for the cost! You get breakfast included, it’s on the beach, and walking distance to good restaurants. But it’s a lot of families and noise.

    1) Nice pool and pool side bar. The staff was courteous, although very cautious in lieu of COVID activity. 2) For being an "All Inclusive" the restaurants were not that great as compared to when the hotel was called "The Flamingo". The menu was very limited at each restaurant. 3)We did not get an Ocean View Room as reserved through Expedia. We were place in a sub basement room with a limited view of the pool area.

    From check in to check out, we received great service. There was lot of sanitizer stations and you would see staff coming and spraying hotel pool chairs multiple time a day for safety and social distancing was in place. Staff were great too; Jessica & Mario were very welcoming and helpful Angel at the pool took amazing care of us Jaime at the Italian restaurant gave us an extraordinary & memorable 1st anniversary dinner and treated us just as great when we returned a few nights later. Gabriella at banana wind was delightful to speak with Our room was cleaned daily and we have only positive to say For an all inclusive there was plenty of options of food and drinks (alcoholic & non alcohol). Bottle of water were available free of charge at the pool bar & at the restaurant Beach is right across the street ans nice, pool chair were provided to us upon request Only negative is if you are a light sleeper, there is a bird choir every morning at 5am pool side and it’s pretty loud. But it only bothered us first morning than we slept through it all the other mornings
