You can now reserve a room and swim in the lagoon-style pool at Margaritaville Beach House in Key West.

You can now officially reserve your vacation getaway to paradise in the Florida Keys. Cheeseburger paradise, that is.

The new Margaritaville Beach House Key West is now accepting reservations in advance of its official opening.

Located on Smathers Beach, the oceanfront hotel is currently operating as Barbary Beach House Key West, but on Nov. 15 guests will find a rebranded and upgraded resort, with family-friendly amenities and new places to eat and drink.

“Key West is the perfect location for our new Margaritaville destination, providing guests with a relaxing oasis to escape, unwind, and enjoy the laid-back lifestyle,” said general manager Jeremy DaSilva in a statement. “We’re excited to welcome travelers from around the world to experience the Margaritaville state of mind and the resort’s superlative service and stellar offerings.”

The new hotel features 186 suites, plus a lagoon-style pool with entertainment and lawn games. Find a hammock and take a nap or hit the 24-hour fitness center. Or do what every tourist wants to do: Head to the beach for sun and sand.

Also opening at the property is the Tin Cup Chalice Bar & Chill, a new restaurant and bar. We are betting you can get oysters and beer for dinner every day of the year, but check the menu to make sure.

The resort also features outdoor gardens and courtyards with a 1,500-square foot event Tiki hut, should you need an outdoor meeting, a gathering or an impromptu wedding inspired by way too many adult beverages. There’s also indoor banquet space.
