You are one awesome husband! Are you going to have the party there? We went after the Gulf Coast concert and it was really beautiful. We ate at Frank and Lola's and the food was great. Didn't see the rooms but all the public places we went to were very beautiful. The beach was very nice also and May would be so pretty! There is also a beach bar....Landshark Landing......it was just before the grand opening when we were there but looked really nice. The whole place ain't cheap to stay......or eat.....

I don't know about having a private party......could be serious money but I would call them to see what they could do for you. I guess having family come would depend on budgets and what the weather is where they live. 8)

We have friends that stayed there and although rather pricey said it was wonderful. I saw many pics of the hotel rooms and they were quite nice. Hope that helps.

I don't think your wife will be disappointed with the Margaritaville Hotel. Sounds like a wonderful 50th. :D

Hey,

My wife and I went there last May and it was great. We stayed 4 nights. Could have stayed longer. Were looking to go back again in the new year.
The rooms are fantastic! Lots of room and great decor. Get a room facing the gulf. Well worth the price. Land Shark Landing is a great hang out.
We went the week before Memorial Day so there wasn't a crowd but plenty of people having a good time.
You'll have a great time there.

Fins Up!
