Margaritaville Hollywood Announces Summer 2015 Grand Opening

The long anticipated Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort has confirmed its plan to open in Summer of 2015.

"I am thrilled to be onboard and excited to help bring the vision for this exciting new resort to life," said Cate Farmer, the resort's recently appointed general manager. "With an incredible oceanfront location in Greater Fort Lauderdale and the powerful brand platform of Margaritaville, we are confident Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort will emerge as a top destination for leisure and business travelers from around the world."

Think of it like a Jimmy Buffett themed resort park for grownups.

Everything at the resort will be based on the musical inspiration and laid back stylings of the Key Westian singer-songwriter, from the restaurants and bars -- including Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, LandShark Bar & Grill, License to Chill Rooftop Bar, Lone Palm Bar, and 5 O'clock Somewhere Bar -- to the 15,000 square-foot St. Somewhere Spa where guests can "check-in and chill out".

...Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort (pictured above) is on track for a Summer 2015 completion. Designed to offer an extensive array of amenities combined with a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail, the 349-room 17-story resort will be the perfect setting for guests to escape the everyday and just chill. Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort will bring an entirely different perspective to South Florida with its unique, authentic, "no worries," tropical vibe and the feeling of escape that is experienced immediately upon arrival.

The resort has been a longtime coming and promises to completely change (for better or worse) the face of Hollywood Beach and the iconic Hollywood Broadwalk.

Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort will be located at 1111 N. Ocean Drive. Visit MargaritavilleHollywoodBeachResort.com or call 954-874-4444. Follow Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort on Facebook at facebook.com/MargaritavilleHollywoodBeachResort.
