Nestled amid the majestic Great Smoky Mountains, we embarked on an exciting adventure to discover unique things to do in Pigeon Forge, a southern entertainment haven like no other. Our destination: Margaritaville Island Hotel, a tropical oasis right in the heart of The Island, a vibrant hub of shops, rides, and restaurants.
This resort is more than just a place to rest your head; it’s an experience in itself.
Margaritaville: Where History Meets Hospitality
Before we dive into the accommodations, let’s savor a slice of Margaritaville’s history. Founded by the iconic Jimmy Buffett, this brand represents a laid-back lifestyle, full of good times and unforgettable moments. And that’s precisely what we found during our stay.
Finding the right room for your party
Our check-in experience had a few hiccups, but the Margaritaville staff was a shining beacon of hospitality. Their helpfulness, friendliness, and willingness to accommodate our needs made us feel right at home. As a result, we had the unexpected opportunity to see more than just one type of room.
Double Queen Guest Room – Cozy Comfort
Our journey began with a stay in the Double Queen Guest Room. These rooms are the epitome of cozy comfort, with two plush queen beds to ensure a restful night’s sleep. It’s important to note that most of these rooms don’t include a sofa sleeper, but a select few exist so you will need to call ahead.
One Bedroom whirlpool tub Suite – Spacious Serenity
For those seeking a bit more space, the One Bedroom Suite beckons. With a separate living area, a fully equipped kitchenette, and a luxurious king-size bed in the bedroom, it’s a sanctuary of serenity amidst the excitement of The Island. They accidentally sent us to this room thinking it was the two bedroom suite.
Two Bedroom Suite – Family-Friendly Choice
Now, let’s talk about the Two Bedroom Suite. While it’s a fantastic option for larger groups, there’s a catch. The second bedroom is more like a cozy nook with two twin beds and a TV squeezed in. Space is limited, making it ideal for families with small children who don’t mind the snug quarters.
Conclusion: A Slice of Paradise in the Smokies
In the end, our stay at Margaritaville Island Hotel in Pigeon Forge was a memorable journey into the heart of entertainment and relaxation. Depending on the size of your party, Margaritaville offers a range of accommodations to suit your needs. Who knows, maybe on our next visit, we’ll give one of those penthouse suites a try! So, if you’re seeking a tropical escape in the midst of the Smoky Mountains’ allure, Margaritaville awaits with open arms.
