If you know Jimmy Buffett lyrics and lifestyle, and are familiar with Karisma Resorts Gourmet Inclusive concept - then you know culinary and mixology creations are very important ingredients to the Margaritaville Island Reserve  experience. 


Margaritaville Island Reserve Cap Cana  showcases the best of this partnership with many firsts. The first Landshark Smokehouse & Brewery outside of the U.S. The first JWB Steakhouse as part of the all inclusive package. And the first Gourmet Village - the heartbeat of the resort with 7 food and drink locale's plus the Main Stage with live entertainment.

Joe Merchants - Coffee & Provisions

Just another shining example of how a Margaritaville Island Reserve All Inclusive Resorts rise above the competition.

You select what to stock your room with from: liquor, wine, beer, mixers, juices, soft drinks, energy drinks, snacks and much more. Enjoy a cup of Dominican java while you shop.

Banana Breeze Vacations loves this concept. We have done it and are spoiled from it. You may end up taking a bottle home.

West Indies - Rum Runners

Jimmy Buffett sings Where I go I hope there's rhum. Rum and the Caribbean are synonymous. Rum Runners is a nod of the cap to the Caribbean pirate days. Just a few steps from the infinity pool and the white sand beach, here you will find some of the best rums from the Caribbean. We are impressed with the menu of freshly prepared Caribbean and Dominican specialties.
