Bars & Boat Drinks ...

What comes to mind when you hear Margaritaville? Jimmy Buffett music is synonymous with good times and adult beverages. Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Cancun has more bars than restaurants. There may be only 148 rooms but we still have 3  Swim Up Bars. Who else can say that! Not only are your drinks included, but they are premium brands. Salude! And Fins Up!

License To Chill Bar - Adults Only

This is the no kids allowed bar. Sit at the bar, or swim up to order your favorite cerveza or frozen concoction. This breezy bar is all about chill. There's something cool here all day and night - oceanfront views, firepits and live music in the evening.

Five O'Clock Somewhere Bar

Like the song goes, "That sun is hot, and that old clock is moving slow." It wouldn't be a Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville without a 5 O'Clock Somewhere Bar. Fear not - all of your favorite beers, cocktails, and definitely Margaritaville Tequila are here waiting for you. This poolside bar is just steps from The Beach House Restaurant and delivers live music. Also only a few steps from the gorgeous beach.
