While a vacation embraces the “5 O’clock Somewhere” vibe, Margaritaville Reserve Riviera Maya Resort is far from just a line in an infamous Jimmy Buffett song. A nod to the carefree lifestyle infuses the experience. With outstanding hospitality and a lure of delicious food and beverage options, it is time to put on that floral shirt and let a wave of relaxation take over.

Up and down Riviera Maya, the resort options stud the highway. From a family resort featuring favorite cartoon characters to the epitome of elegant luxury, vacationers have a bounty of options. A successful vacation is dependent on picking a resort based on personal preference. If a quiet lounge chair in the shade is preferred to a raucous ride down a water slide, the options narrow.

With an adult, all-inclusive resort, the ambiance and attention to detail is key. Balancing an out-going partner’s need to meet everyone at the pool bar to the other’s preference for low-key moments reading a book is vital. Everyone wants to return from a vacation satisfied.

With Margaritaville Island Reserve Resort Riviera Maya, the vacation destination offers a little bit of everything. From the person who wants to be front and center during the dance party to the guest who prefers the quiet nook, the experience is what every person makes it.

Although there are many people who might tout themselves as Parrot Heads that sip their Landshark Lager, this resort includes everyone. The Jimmy Buffet influence is clear, but it is not overbearing. Even if a few lyrics might be etched into the memory banks by the end of the trip, all is not lost. Hopefully, the bars of those songs will serve as a reminder to take a break from the chaos when work life becomes too much.

Margaritaville Island Reserve Resort Riviera Maya is more than Landshark Beer and margaritas

As many travelers have come to appreciate, all-inclusive resorts can offer a bounty of food and beverage options. For the food traveler, that guest wants more than just another endless buffet and local draft beer. Authentic flavors, variety, and outstanding hospitality make the meal turn into a total experience.

The must try food experience that draws a crowd is the avocado boat. Delivered straight to the pool, the gigantic spread can feed everyone. With several taco varieties, ceviche, and guacamole, no one will be hungry after enjoying this feast.

And, sharing is caring. Since the avocado boat is a great conversation piece, it is the perfect introduction to making new friends.

While that avocado boat makes a big impression, the food and beverages at Margaritaville Island Reserve Resort Riviera Maya epitomize the Karisma Gourmet Inclusive concept. The blend of elevated with approachable is seen on every table.

From the nachos enjoyed with a draft beer at the Landshark Brewery and Grill to the perfectly seared steak at the JWB Steakhouse, the food captures the setting where it is served. One night a guest might want that well-choregraphed, multi-course dinner and another day they could prefer a simple bite before watching a concert at the bar. The variety is key to the overall enjoyment of the resort experience.

At the same time, nothing is pretentious. Every dish, at every restaurant, is about flavor and quality. Your choice of footwear does not impact that eating enjoyment. When hospitality, flavor, and experience blend well, the guest will always be satisfied.

For the guest looking for an all-inclusive resort that does not require a golf cart to traverse it, prefers a come as you are attitude, yet still appreciates the finer food and flavors, Margaritaville Island Reserve Resort Riviera Maya is a perfect choice.

As Jimmy Buffet said, “Only time will tell if it was time well-spent.” For this traveler, time spent at this Margaritaville resort was definitely time well-spent.
