Things to Do at Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg
Enjoy the Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg indoor pool on a chilly winter day—and post those pictures and videos on social media channels to make your friends and family in cold weather destinations jealous.
A nice hot tub is outside and is quite relaxing even when snow is falling (like when I was there in January). When the weather is better, enjoy the Margaritaville Gatlinburg outdoor pool area, including a waterslide and children’s pool.
The fitness center even has a tropical and relaxing vibe while you work off the prior night’s margarita(s) and nachos.
Popular treatments at Margaritaville Gatlinburg’s St. Somewhere Spa include the Defy Gravity facial and the Muscadine moonshine pedicure. Couples massage and facial treatments—with partners switching places after each treatment—are popular but there is also a couples massage room. The showers with steam and heated stone floors are luxurious.
How about hosting or attending a team building function or a wedding with the Chairman of the Board (Jimmy himself) presiding?
Where to Eat at Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg
In room amenities include a Keurig machine for making tea and coffee. That is a nice touch and will save you time, money, and aggravation. Each room also has a microwave and small refrigerator, so you can shop and bring some snacks and small meal items.
Joe Merchant’s Coffee and Provisions in the lobby serves delicious and fast breakfast sandwiches, pastries, fruit, and beverages. McCool Travel tip: order a sandwich without the potatoes and save $5. Here is the menu.
Get your frozen concoction, boat drink, margarita, or beer at License to Chill. The lobby bar also offers salads, handheld sandwiches, tacos, flatbreads, and other small entrees.
McCool Travel tip: order your Perfect Margarita (or any drink) in a plastic cup and savor it while basking in the outdoor hot tub! Here is the menu.
A short walk out the front door, past the giant flip flop statue, is the full service Landshark Bar and Grill. Landshark has a more extensive food and beverage menu but please note that their items cannot be charged to your room (but the above two places can). Here is the menu.
Other Places to Eat in Gatlinburg
Off property but just across the street from Margaritaville in Gatlinburg TN is El Sonador. The Camarones a la diablo is super spicy and a large, cold Dos XX is $7.
A quick walk away (only a third of a mile) is a McCool Travel favorite bakery, Donut Friar. Buy an eclair (at least one eclair!) for now and one of their clever mugs as a Gatlinburg souvenir reminder for future morning teas.
