Jimmy Buffett selected a perfect beachfront location to introduce his first Adult-Only 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 Margarita Popsicle and branded 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 Maya is an upscale coastal 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) bar, 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 10,000 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, pizza and seafood at Frank & Lola's, to a Landshark Lager and fresh grilled specialties at Landshark Brewery & Grill. 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 13 styles of rooms and suites to satisfy you - from cozy Paradise Rooms to the One Particular Harbour Suite. Every coastal 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 DJ Pool Parties, Beach Bonfires, Pickleball and Cornhole Tournaments, Kayak, play beach soccer, Water Volleyball, or dance at any of the live music venues. Remember, it always 5 O'Clock Somewhere at Margaritaville Island Reserve.
