EXPLORE THE RESORT,! Inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle of singer, songwriter and author Jimmy Buffett, the family-friendly Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort is a destination resort and entertainment complex on the legendary Hollywood Beach Broadwalk. Hollywood Beach is a classic Florida beach town that has enchanted visitors since the 1920s. Often compared to quaint European and funky California beach towns, the character of this inviting area is all Florida. Evening strollers, morning joggers, bicyclists and rollerbladers share the brick paved, beachfront thoroughfare with those enjoying the many cafes and bars along the way.
