Step into Paradise at the Margaritaville Resort in Biloxi

Don’t let the summer waste away without spending some time at Margaritaville! Not exactly the Margaritaville that Mississippi native Jimmy Buffet sings about…but it is pretty close.

Biloxi is home to the beautiful Margaritaville Resort and Family Entertainment Center. Much like Buffett’s lifestyle, Margaritaville has a laid back attitude where all the worries of the world seem to drift away. One of the greatest things about Margaritaville is that there is something for everyone to enjoy at this gorgeous spot of paradise located on the Gulf Coast.

This 371-room 23-story family-friendly resort is based upon the iconic song, and its intention at your arrival is to put you in a tropical state of mind. You’ll be transported to paradise and offered unique experiences in this coastal luxury where “amenities are centered around the vacation state-of-mind” no matter the time of year.

“Fun” is the primary concept of the resort and it is a grand adventure for youngsters and the young at heart.  At the Escape Center, there is a 55,000 square foot family entertainment center which is part arcade and part amusement park that is a great place to spend a rainy day or afternoon.

For those that like a little fun in the sun, they’ll enjoy the gorgeous rooftop water playground. Take a leisurely float around the 450-foot Lazy River, delight in the winding water slides, have some fun at the custom splash pad, try your hand at the water rope courses, or see if you can hop across the giant flip flops at this amazing rooftop water playground.

You can also relax by the pool with a good book and maybe even a hand-crafted cocktail from the swim up bar at “The 5 o’clock Somewhere Bar;” you won’t be disappointed.

There is always live entertainment, and great music scheduled every day. One of the many reasons  Margaritaville Resort Biloxi is “the #1 place for the most family fun on the Gulf Coast.”

Additionally, while you’re having a great time with family and friends, you’ll also be helping out the community as well. Margaritaville Resort Biloxi provides charitable donations, events, and drives for the community throughout the year.

When you get a little hungry from all the fun and adventure in the sun and water, there are so many delicious food options for to try. Have a signature “Cheeseburger in Paradise” at the Margaritaville Café, Grab a pizza at Farruggio’s Pizzeria, enjoy a delicious steak at Doe’s Eat Place, grab a drink at the Lost Key Bar, or make a stop at the Margaritaville Coffee Shop!

If you’re looking for a great dessert or special treat, visit the Sweet Shack where you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into Willy Wonka’s factory with ice cream sundaes, lemonades, fresh fruit purees, candy toppings aplenty and so much more.

The 23-story hotel has spacious, beautiful rooms with breathtaking sights of the city lights and the Gulf. Plus, the rooms are pet friendly, so you don’t have to leave your furry friends at home.

It’s the perfect place for a long weekend, vacation, or a great place to enjoy a fun afternoon. “Fun” is definitely the theme of this gorgeous locale and you’ll be treated like royalty at this tropical paradise.
