Margaritaville Hollywood Resort Now Open

The Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort opened “quietly” on Tuesday September 22nd. Since I had only seen the outside, I stopped by on Wednesday to get an inside look. I was allowed to tour the lobby, the shops on the first floor and the beach-side Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Restaurant. This will likely be the busiest restaurant because it is open 6:00 AM to 1:00 AM and features live band music in the evenings.

I saw children of the employees riding the waves at “FlowRider┬« Double, one of the most sought after surfing simulator…in the world.”

The resort’s signature restaurant. JWB Prime Steak and Seafood, is located in the lobby. “JWB will offer a contemporary menu of fresh seafood including spear-caught fish, a raw bar and prime steaks paired with world-class wines and hand-crafted cocktails.”

There is still a little work to be done. There were workers putting on finishing touches to the entrance and the outdoor band stand. These tasks will be completed before the official Grand Opening which is yet to be announced.

Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort Opening Soon

I was on the Hollywood Broadwalk early Saturday morning August 8th, to check out the progress of Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort. A few months after construction started, the projected opening date was stated as sometime in July 2015. Apparently, there is a delay. The resort is taking reservations for October so we can assume that the opening will be sometime between now and late September. Judging by the looks of things I predict the opening will be around September 18th.
