Margaritaville Beach Resort Fort Myers Beach Now Open To Guests 

Today, Margaritaville Beach Resort officially opens on Fort Myers Beach. After the devastating effects of Hurricane Ian, the opening marks an important moment for the community. Following an exclusive locals-only weekend, in celebration of resilience, and ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by dignitaries, community partners, and area residents, the resort is open for stays, dining, and spa services starting December 11. 

Located at 251 Crescent Street, the newest Margaritaville Beach Resort sits on 7.25 acres along Fort Myers Beach with direct beach access and views of the Gulf of Mexico. The property features 254 guest rooms and six restaurants, including signature concepts such as JWB Grill, License to Chill Bar & Grill, and 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar & Grill. All restaurants, as well as the 43,000-square-foot Sunset Terrace, are open to the public. The property offers food and beverage service across 19,000 square feet of sandy beach overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Valet parking is available for guests and the public at a daily rate. 

“It’s official – Margaritaville Beach Resort Fort Myers Beach is now open and we are ready to transport guests to a vacation state of mind,” said David Cesario, general manager of Margaritaville Beach Resort Fort Myers Beach. “After a difficult few years for the community, our new resort is the ultimate place to kick back and relax and we are thrilled to bring our casual-luxe destination to the residents and visitors of Southwest Florida.”
