Our Visit to Margaritaville
My husband (Blake) and I visited the Margaritaville Biloxi Resort for two nights and three days. We had a lot of fun, spending most of our time laying by the pool and enjoying the lazy river. The resort’s calm and tranquil vibe allowed us to have a much needed relaxing vacation. We really liked the beachy decor, but the piped-in smells were our favorite. What a cool concept!
Blake and I also took the opportunity to explore Biloxi, which we loved.
Thoughts about the room: It had a classic Jimmy Buffet feel. Our bathroom was spacious and the shower had excellent water pressure.
My thoughts about the pool area: I appreciated that lifeguards at Margaritaville Biloxi were always on duty. The inner tubes for the lazy river are a special touch. The pool area reminded me of a cruise ship’s Lido deck with a pool, lounge chairs, restaurants, and music playing while surrounded by water and enjoying the ocean breeze.
Have Your Own Island-Inspired Vacation!
Mississippi’s Margaritaville Biloxi is the perfect spot for a family vacation. The kids will have plenty to do so you can sit back and relax, and pretend that you are somewhere in the Caribbean. Best of all, you don’t even need to leave the resort!
