New Margaritaville All-Inclusive To Open In Cancun In 2023 

Share The Article

There have been quite a few additions to the long list of hotels and all-inclusive resorts that tourists have to choose from in Cancun this year, and there are even more to come next year.  One of those will be the new Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Maya which is set to open in Cancun in early 2023.  The all-inclusive Margaritaville property is a joint venture with Karisma Hotels & Resorts and will be the third project that has developed out of the partnership.

The Margaritaville brand has been around since the 1980s when it was created by American singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffet. The first Margaritaville branded restaurant opened in 1987 in the popular tropical vacation destination of Key West, FL and from then on the brand quickly began to grow.  It wasn’t until the 2000s that the brand crossed over into the hospitality business and now over 20 Margaritaville resorts already exist and more are being planned.

Cancun is also home to another one of the three Karisma and Margaritaville ventures, the Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Cancun.  The resort, located in nearby Puerto Morelos, is the first all-inclusive Margaritaville resort to ever be opened.  It has 148 rooms and suites and ten different dining and drinking venues, including a taco restaurant, an open-air Caribbean-inspired restaurant, and a swim-up bar.

The new Margaritaville resort will be an adult-only all-inclusive property and will be larger than the one that has already opened.  It will have over 300 rooms and suites, with some pretty extravagant options for those looking for something special for their Cancun vacation.  Included in those more than 300 accommodations will be 13 different room types, including oceanfront swim-up studios.

The Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Maya Cancun property will also be home to five restaurants and four bars.  Guests will have the option of a high-end five-star dining experience at places like Frank & Lola’s Italian restaurant or JWB Steakhouse, and a more laid-back casual eating experience at establishments like the Landshark Brewery & Grill.  The Landshark Brewery & Grill will be the first in Mexico and will brew its Landshark lager right on-site.

Three pools, a spa, and weekly events will keep guests busy during their stay when not relaxing at the beach or enjoying some of the great leisure activities Cancun has to offer.  While there is no set opening date mentioned, the first available date to book on the resort website is April 1, 2023.  Rates for that first available date start at around $662, and later in the month drop to around $583.

Hotels in Cancun are more than 80 percent booked for much of the winter season and even as more hotels are being added to the region they are filling up as Cancun becomes more and more popular.  Millions of tourists from the U.S., Canada, and Europe have already visited Cancun this year and 2023 is ending much the way it started.  It’s very likely that next year will be an even better year for tourism in the Mexican Caribbean as things continue to get back to normal following the pandemic and the high inflation that affected tourism on some level this year.
