A Weekend at Margaritaville Beach Hotel and Landshark Landing

IMG_2399Mary and I recently spent the weekend at the Margaritaville Beach Hotel in Pensacola Beach, FL. If I were to to tell you that we were amazed, that would be an understatement. We purchased the Romance Package (only $99 extra) and we were welcomed in our room with Champagne, Chocolate Covered Strawberries, and two complimentary Margaritaville etched Champagne flutes. IMG_2297After we settled into our room from a long day of traveling, we headed over to (Round 1) Landshark Landing.  We then tried nearly all of the appetizers that were on the menu. We indulged in Buffalo Wings, Chile Con Queso Nachos (Volcano Chile, Queso Cheese Sauce, Tomatoes, Jalapenos, and Green Onions), and 1/2 Pound of Landshark Shrimp. We probably should have stopped at the mountain of Nachos, but what is the fun in that?

While we were there, we visited with the night’s entertainment, The CalypsoNuts. Mary and I shared several Landsharks (two of which were complimentary of the hotel) with Lynley and Robbie, from The CalypsoNuts discussing Trop Rock and Reggae Music. We went back to our room for a bit while the band set up. Upon our return, The CalypsoNuts were in full swing and managing the crowd quite well. We sat and listened to the energetic beat and style for hours. The CalypsoNuts played several classic covers from their albums “Kiwi” and “Orange”.  Among the playlist were several of our favorites: “Ain’t No Sunshine”, “Could You Be Loved”, “Dreadlock Holiday” and “Kingston Town”  There were several Jimmy Buffett songs thrown in the mix as well.IMG_2519

After an energetic evening of The CalypsoNuts, we retired to our Bay View room. The following morning started out just as good as the previous day. Breakfast in bed from Frank and Lola Love Pensacola Cafe (included with the Romance Package), need I say more? Greeted by Room Service at 8:00am, could not have been more welcoming. I had the Bourbon Street Omelet – Blackened shrimp, crawfish, blue crab, chorizo sausage, peppers, onions, Pepper Jack cheese and sriracha hollandaise sauce. While, Mary had Vanilla Custard French Toast – With fresh strawberries and House Dulce De Leche.

We spent the remainder of the day, basking in the sun on their private beach. The beach was complete StandUp Paddle Boards, Kayaks, Chairs, Umbrellas (not our cup of tea), and many others. IMG_2374

Be sure to check the Landshark Landing calendar before booking your trip. There are definitely some amazing Trop Rock acts that you would not won’t to miss. We missed the Southern Drawl Band by one week. The Teddy Bear of Trop Rock, John Friday, has also played there. Local favorites, Steve and Sandra Youngblood, have also been known to make appearances.

We would recommend a stay at the Margaritaville Beach Hotel over any other if you are traveling to Pensacola Beach, FL. This was, without a doubt, an experience like no other. We have stayed at many of the hotels along Florida’s Northern Gulf Coast, but this one made a lasting impression.

Until our next adventure, remember to always Trop On!
