Menu items include Avocado Country toast; lightly roasted stone fruit bowl on cottage cheese with berries and honey; a variety of burgers and salads. Across the way at JWB (James Williams Buffett) Grill guests can sit on a stool at the rollup bar with a counter to enjoy a Pina Colada with fresh seafood specialties, grilled meats and other fine dining fare. Outdoor tables and chairs are placed near a performance platform on the semi-covered outdoor patio for guests to experience live music with their meal.
Walking through the resort I noticed more references to Buffett’s “Margaritaville” song:
“Watchin’ the sun bake
All of those tourists covered with oil (there are two pools at the resort)
Strummin’ my six string
On my front porch swing (In the lobby are two front porch swings)
“Smell those shrimp, they’re beginnin’ to boil” (at JWB Grill and Bar)
Wastin’ away again in Margaritaville
Searchin’ for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there’s a woman to blame
But I know, it’s nobody’s fault”
“I blew out my flip flop (the hotel has a 13′ blue flip flop at the entrance of the hotel)
Stepped on a pop top (displayed next to the flip flop)
Cut my heel, had to cruise on back home” (hotel offers complimentary cruiser bicycles for guests to take for a spin around Uptown and Downtown Palm Spring)
“But there’s booze in the blender (at the 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar)
And soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on” (a variety of frozen concoctions include vodka ‘Banana Breeze’, fruity Margaritaville Silver Rum ‘Don’t Stop The Carnival’ and ‘Daiquiri’s Too Fruitiful’.
Make a reservation for the Chill-Out Suite, offering a large sitting area with a sofa bed, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and separate ensuite bedroom with a stand alone deep soaking tub allows guests to ‘chill-out’ after a day exploring the greater Palm Springs area.
Right now the resort is offering 20% room rates on certain days, and specials for guests who spend three of more days. If you aren’t familiar with Jimmy Buffett and his songs, you soon will be after staying at the Margaritaville Resort Palm Springs.
