After beating out Planet Hollywood back in April, a Margaritaville hotel and resort received final approval from Hollywood, Florida city commissioners on Wednesday:

Hollywood commissioners gave their blessing for Margaritaville, a vast 17-story resort hotel that promises to change the face of the beach.

The Jimmy Buffett-themed resort won’t break ground for another year, but visitors and locals already are waking up to the clatter of saws, hammers and construction trucks.

Lon Tabatchnick, developer for the $130-million Margaritaville, believes that the Jimmy-Buffett-themed hotel/resort will finally be the catalyst that the beach needs to make it a sought-after vacation destination — and, in time, lure other investors.

The resort, to be built on a six-acre stretch at Johnson Street and the Broadwalk, will have 350 rooms, a pool with a wave simulator, restaurants, a 22,000-square-foot banquet room, parking garage, shops and event areas.

The new entertainment complex, with eateries like Captain Tony’s and dishes like Volcano Nachos, will fit right in with Hollywood’s no-fuss vibe, Tabatchnick said.

The Margaritaville resort is expected to open in three years.

    Jimmy Buffett stopped the construction on the Margeritaville in Biloxi MS saying that the economy wasnt right to support it, yet since then he has opened several new Margeritavilles. There is a huge concrete mess on the beach in Biloxi now Jimmy, when are you at least going to clean up the mess?

    Can’t wait for this! Just across Alligator Alley for this pirate. Throwing back margaritas and corona on the sand at this place will be well worth the hour and half drive!

    Cheers!
