Has anyone been to the newly opened Margaritaville Resort and Restaurant? It is nice to see that corner of East-End back in business.

I was at Margaritaville on Saturday, August 15, 2015.

We had dinner at their restaurant.

The Margaritaville/Wyndham people have done a terrific job renovating and beautifying the resort. The grounds are very attractive.

The new lobby is very nice as is the restaurant area, pool and timeshare units. Since they were full to capacity, during opening week, I didn't get the opportunity to view the inside of a unit.

The restaurant is very casual and the prices are very good. The food was OK. We had to wait about 90 minutes to get our food. There were only about 7 tables occupied when we were there. I guess they're still going through a learning curve.

Margaritaville will make a fine addition to the East End. We now have the Point Pleasant Resort, Dreams Sugar Bay and Margaritaville adjacent to each other.

Also, Pineapple Beach has been cleaned up. Another attraction for the East End.

Thanks for the update. We are arriving in a couple of weeks staying on the northside above Hull Bay. We love driving all over the island and also over to St. John. We will certainly make a stop at Margaritaville for lunch or maybe some sunset cocktails

Blaze:

You will need to make a reservation for dining at Margaritaville.
Call at least 1 day ahead.
Sorry, I don't have their telephone number as another member of our group made the reservation.

Visited Margaritaville St. Thomas last week for a sales tour. The tour took almost two hours and while we had no interest in buying, we wanted to see the property and what they have accomplished so far. We ended up having breakfast at the restaurant and across the board, the service and employees are exceptional!! The place looks gorgeous, but they are still in the soft opening phase. I think it will be very successful when complete. The restaurant is open to public at this point, but when all units are completed, they will not be able to be open to the public. Here is a link to my pictures taken;

The day wasn't the best, but we had a great visit!!

I heard the same thing about the restaurant not being available to outside people when they are at full capacity, but I don't think that will materialize. Even if it does that's still years away.

The restaurant currently has a seating capacity of 209. When completed the resort will have 292 units. If fully occupied (probably a rare event) the resort will have almost 600 people (2 per unit).

With 2 seatings for dinner they could accommodate 418.

However, the restaurant is a very casual venue. Pretty much just a step above a beach burger establishment. I don't think many of the guests, who stay for a week, will be eating there several times for the week. Thus, in my opinion, they will have openings for outsiders. You'll just need to reserve ahead of time.

We'll see.

But I am excited to have Margaritaville open for business and a major attraction on the East End (and St. Thomas).

Isn't this the same location of the former Stouffer's Grand Beach Resort? I stayed there back in March 1992.

Yes, it is.

Margaritaville looks very nice CapeCodRealtor. Thanks for sharing your photos. We are NOT into large vacation complexes like that, we prefer quite villas. But we will visit the property to try the restaurant and walk around a bit. Our first ever visit to STT was a 5 night stay next door at Point Pleasant Resort over ten years ago. I am hoping that the major investment made at Margaritaville has had a positive impact on the "sketchy" vibe of Coki Beach. We will find out within the week. Can't wait to return! 😎
