The promotional package, which is valid for minimum two-night stays through April 30, includes two welcome drinks, two refillable signature Margaritaville® Booze in the Blender souvenir cups, a complimentary room upgrade and a $50 resort credit that can be used toward on-site recreational activities. Nightly rates for the package start at $359.
“Travelers can trade their snow boots for flip flops and leave the cold behind, enjoying our multiple pools, beachside FlowRider® Double wave simulator, watersports and unique dining venues,” Cate Farmer, the resort’s general manager, said in a statement announcing the offer.
Situated on a 300-yard wide strip of beach that separates the Stranahan River from the Atlantic Ocean, the resort offers a dynamic line-up of live entertainment, several on-site resort retail stores, a full-service spa, and multiple diverse restaurant and bar concepts including award-winning JWB Prime Steak and Seafood.
Watersports and outdoor activities abound, including the opportunity to learn to surf on the resort’s beachside FlowRider® Double, experience the calm waters of the Intracoastal Waterway while kayaking or paddle boarding, or take a bike ride along the legendary Hollywood Beach Broadwalk. Finally, its location makes it perfect for those who simply want to relax and soak up the sun. (I was tempted to say “chill” but that’s what we’re trying to avoid this time of year, isn’t it?)

The Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort is one of seven similar properties. Other properties include the Margaritaville Resort and Casino in Boosier City, La., the Margaritaville Resort in Biloxi, Ms., the Margaritaville Resort in Orlando, and the Margaritaville Pigeon Forge Hotel in Tennessee.
The Margaritaville Beach Hotel in Pensacola Beach is undergoing renovations and will be closed through early 2017. The Margaritaville Beach Resort in Grand Cayman is currently under construction and expected to open in the near future.
A final note
The company’s marketing department finally seems to be hitting its stride. Shortly after the resort opened, it tried to market the property as the perfect place for a romantic wedding, apparently forgetting (or choosing to ignore) that its founder was the man who wrote and performed the epic love song, “Why Don’t We Get Drunk and Screw?”
Somehow, the conflict between promoting drunken (and possibly anonymous) sex and professing one’s enduring commitment to the love of his or her life was lost at the time. But inviting their northern neighbors to head for the warm Florida climes in the dead of winter? NOW they’re talking!
