The new Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort in Florida is now taking reservations, with the first date available as October 1st (though the firm opening date may change slightly).
Rates at the 349-room resort on the Broadwalk begin at $259 a night, a hotel spokeswoman said Tuesday.
The resort includes 151 king rooms, 154 queen rooms and 44 suites, along with the Jimmy Buffett Suite and the Coral Reefer Suite, which will occupy the penthouse level of the 17-story resort.
The $147 million Margaritaville, at Johnson Street and State Road A1A, will include eight restaurants and bars, oceanside pools, a FlowRider wave ride, spa and fitness center and 30,000 square feet of convention space.
“We look forward to welcoming our first guests,” General Manager Cate Farmer said in a news release Tuesday.
Reservations are being accepted for stays starting Oct. 1, but the date will be adjusted when a firm opening date is set, the spokewoman said.
So far, the Margaritaville has said only that it will open in “summer 2015.” Hotel developer Lon Tabatchnick told city commissioners in April that Margaritaville could open after mid-July and before Labor Day, if all goes as planned.

Next month, air travelers moving through Miami International Airport will have a new dining option: Air Margaritaville restaurant.
The Jimmy Buffett-inspired Margaritaville eatery is set to open this summer on the second level of the airport’s Central Terminal, offering a menu of island-themed seafood, burgers, salads, sandwiches and tropical drinks.
Both restaurants will be located before security in the Central Terminal, giving all airport guests to access to the new offerings.
“Margaritaville and Viena are ideal fits for our airport customers and our community,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Emilio T. González, in a statement. “Miami is the front door to the Florida Keys and the Caribbean, so the laid-back island lifestyle that Margaritaville represents is very familiar to locals. Likewise, Brazil is MIA’s top international market, so bringing in a popular brand that has served Brazilian diners for 40 years is a move that’s sure to resonate with our customers.”
The restaurants will be run by a U.S.-based subsidiary of Brazil’s leading multi-brand restaurant operator, IMC, airport officials said.
Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville restaurant was originally planned to open in March, but will now open in “early fall” according to their official website margaritavillesanantonio.com.
The restaurant is being built at San Antonio’s Rivercenter Mall on the famed River Walk.
