Jimmy Buffett could not have selected a better beachfront to introduce his first all inclusive resort. Nor could Margaritaville have selected a better partner than Karisma to develop this unique all inclusive resort. Located less than 20-minutes south of the Cancun airport, your welcome drink and flip flops will serve as reminder that you have changed your latitude. This is Your License To Chill

Make no mistaka, Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Cancun is an upscale resort with a laid back tropical escapism vibe. You are free to unwind in a beach hammock, socialize at the S.O.S. (Stranded on a Sandbar), or party with live music at the oceanfront adult only License To Chill Bar. You can stay fit in the Fitness Centre, or say adios to stress in the 8,000 foot St. Somewhere Spa.

Food is an important ingredient in the all inclusive world. The chefs here have gone to world-wide lengths to ensure every taste, even those with dietary requirements are impressed. From house-made pasta at Frank & Lola's, to mouthwatering tacos at the beachside Rita's Taco House. And for those occasions when all you want is to soak in the turquoise water views from your very own balcony - there is 24-hour room service to accompany your favorite in-room beverage. It's all included!

And speaking of rooms, there are 9 styles of rooms and suites to satisfy you - from cozy Paradise Rooms to Presidential Swim Up Chill Out Suites. Every island inspired room if filled with luxurious amenities, maritime accents, a balcony or patio, rainforest shower head, smart TV and more. Your stay also includes Wi-Fi and International phone calls.


It's your vacation so do as you please, when you please. Partake as you wish in Margarita parties, Beach parties, Mariachi Fiestas, Kayak, play beach soccer, Latin dance classes, Aqua Fit classes, or dance at any of the four live music venues.
