Resort Pools: An Oasis in the Desert

Margaritaville Resort Palm Springs

Margaritas taste better poolside, so grab a cold one at Margaritaville’s two full-service resort pools and melt into vacation mode. Find the 5 O’Clock Somewhere Pool at the heart of the resort, which has a full bar and dishes out frozen drinks and island-themed plates. Order a Don’t Stop the Carnival margarita because it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, after all! For something a little more private, close the curtains of a personal cabana or daybed. Reservations can be made in advance and come with plenty of perks, such as complimentary chips and salsa. Cabanas accommodate parties up to 12 and are equipped with a TV, fans and complimentary champagne! If relaxation is more your style, then head over to the Lone Palm Pool, which is tucked between buildings 4 and 5 with sunny yellow lounge chairs and a full-service tiki bar. 


Exciting Summer Events: Bring Your Flip-Flops and Dancing Shoes

There’s so much more to Margaritaville than pools and frozen cocktails. The resort’s summer lineup of events ensures the entertainment never stops. With Tuesday line dancing, Wine Down Wednesday, featuring half-price bottles of wine at JWB Grill, and Thursday salsa dancing, the middle of the week can easily turn into a weekend! Make your way across the dance floor with salsa professionals at the License to Chill Bar every Thursday from 6-7 p.m., and come back on Friday and Saturday to enjoy live music. Stretch out at Saturday morning yoga, and bring the whole family for a Sunday scavenger hunt.

Be sure to also save the date for Dragaritaville Bingo that’s hosted by the “Queen of Palm Springs,” Ethylina Canne, on June 8 and Aug. 3. Also set a reminder for the Equality Wine and Food Fest on July 1. Celebrating LGBTQ+, BIPOC and women-owned winemakers, Margaritaville’s wine and food fest recognizes small-business brands in the industry. Your glass will always be half-full with unlimited samplings and lite bites from celebrity chef demonstrations at the grand tasting from 1-4 p.m.

Cheeseburgers in paradise? Yes, please! Margaritaville plays host to six on-site dining concepts with everything from a casual poolside grill to a more refined dinner spot. Named after the iconic Jimmy Buffet is the JWB Grill, Margaritaville’s more upscale yet laid-back restaurant. Find prime rib on the menu (and, of course, cheeseburgers) alongside globally inspired plates, such as the Harissa roasted half chicken and Korean-style ribs. Reserve a table on Friday or Saturday to enjoy live music as you dig in. Wake up the next day with breakfast at Come Monday Cafe. Made for slow mornings, this on-site cafe embodies island hospitality with rattan lanterns hung overhead on the tree-shaded patio. But what Margaritaville is most-known for is its 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar. Poolside margaritas are available and acceptable to order at all times of day. Looking to relax? Enjoy burgers and light bites with friends at the License to Chill Bar. This hangout offers the best handcrafted cocktails along with Margaritaville’s signature LandShark Lager. Order the chicken nachos to share and thank us later!
