Wastin’ Away Again At Margaritaville… in the heart of the Smokey Mountains!
I love taking trips to Gatlinburg, TN! There is nothing like the mountain air, amazing attractions, food, and family entertainment to really get me going! I just got back from an amazing trip where I had the pleasure of staying at the Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg and wanted to share my experiences and thoughts on this new resort in the heart of Gatlinburg!
First off, let’s talk about the location! For those who have been, you know that location is one of the best reasons for finding a good place to stay in the Smokey Mountains! Parking can be tough and traffic is heavy at times based on the season. I fell in love with this resort when we parked the car for the first time and realized that we were in the heart of the town and could walk everywhere! The resort is conveniently located right across the street from the Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokeys and Anakeesta!
The rooms at the resort are amazing! We brought the kids on this trip and the rooms were huge with 2 queen sized beds, 50 inch TV’s, an amazing balcony that looked over the pool and the mountains, and a bathroom that I am missing today! The shower was big enough to fit a small party of people in with multiple shower heads that really allowed you to relax in style and comfort!
The biggest draw to Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg was the word resort and all the amenities that come with this place! From the massive pool with a hot tub and slide, indoor pool for rainy days, the gym that had all the equipment in it that I needed for a full body workout, bar and restaurant on site that offered room service with high-quality food and drinks, and the coffee shop that was open early and stayed open late at night for me to get my caffeine fix! This place was amazing enough to not have to walk off the property!
Located on property, the Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg has a full-service spa that offers services such as massages, facials, hair and nail services, and a ton more to keep you pampered in style and comfort! The spa, which is cleverly named the St. Somewhere Spa! This spa offers services to guests at the hotel for a discounted price as well as those who just want a piece of pleasure without staying on property! I had the chance to check out their Wastin’ Away Signature Spa massage that offers 90 minutes of pure bliss with a deep tissue massage with essential oils, hot stones, aromatherapy, and steam towels. If you get the chance to go, make sure you ask for Dan! He has a ton of experience as a massage therapist and did an amazing job at making sure that I had one of the best spa experiences ever!
Lastly, I want to comment on what set the Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg apart from any other resort I have ever been to! That answer, in short, was the people. There is something special about the people who live in and around Gatlinburg and it is alive and well at the Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg. Their hospitality, willingness to help, and above and beyond service standards really not only impressed myself and my family but secured the fact that this will be our number one choice for resorts going forward in Gatlinburg and the surrounding areas!
