The Perfect Blend of Lake Latitude and Island Attitude
Margaritaville Lake Resort Lake Conroe opened in June of 2020 and the resort is Inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle of singer, songwriter and best-selling author Jimmy Buffett. Everywhere you go you'll hear Jimmy's singing in the background, see lyrics and snippets from his songs, and enjoy the shade of over 150 palm trees swaying in the lake breeze. You can sip frozen drinks at the It's 5 O'clock Somewhere swim-up pool bar, sit on a bar stool under a thatched umbrella or relax in a hammock at Toes in the Sand on the edge of Lake Conroe. The Jimmy Buffett music playing throughout the resort will quickly get you into a laid back Caribbean island vibe! It doesn't take long to fell the stress evaporate. We quickly understood why Margaritaville Lake Resort's motto is "the perfect blend of lake latitude and island attitude" and how the resort lives up to the words of Jimmy's "license to chill:"
The Margaritaville Lake Resort Vibe & Staff
As soon as saw the resort logo and entered the resort doors, heard Jimmy Buffett singing in the background, and saw the huge flip flop and pop top, colorful flowers, tropical pictures of parrots, sailing, and beaches, we immediacy felt the island vibe and knew that we were in for a good time. Contributing to the laid back fun vibe was the Margaritaville Lake Resort staff - all of whom we found attentive, enthusiastic about their job and the resort, and very friendly and outgoing. In fact, when we walked in to register, one of the registration staff had stepped out from behind her desk and was dancing to one of Buffett's songs, waving and shaking to the music, and warmly greeting us.
Bottom line - wow, what a spectacular new lake resort that's loaded with fun amenities, lots of dining options, excellent friendly service, and a relaxing and fun vibe. What are you waiting for, call and make a reservation for an enjoyable and memorable golf getaway.
