We could have done without visiting the Beach -- our resort was on a private beach so that was an unnecessary part for us. It's always cool to hang out at Margaritaville but it was a little too early for us and we were the only ones there -- well until one of the boats arrived with a lot of youngsters. I liked the hip strip but our driver suggested one place in particular so we pretty much shopped there.

Margaritaville, Cave Beach Hip-Strip shopping
Marty B
, May 2019
Cave Beach wasn't as long in distance as I had hoped. There were concrete barriers reaching to the beach separating one resort from another so wallking long distances wasn't possible without climbing over or around separating barriers. There was shopping but not enough time to do much of it. The locals were very friendly & willing to have their photo taken. My biggest disappointment was what I thought would be a group venture was actually a private driver/guide tour for 2 persons. The driver was very informative, his English was learned in Virginia so I had no trouble understanding our conversations. However because he spent so much time with us, my friend & I felt obligated to tip him $100 for his entire day with us. All in all it was money well spent.

Dear Customer, Thanks for booking with us! We are grateful that you took the time out to give us your feedback. Doctor's Cave Beach is very beautiful and uniquely located on the Hip Strip. As you mentioned, it has jetties at both ends. They were built to accommodate boarding boats such as catamarans for party cruises and glass bottom boats for snorkeling and scuba trips in the past. Time for shopping is totally up to the customer. There are 5 hours allotted and the customer has a right to decide how much time is spent at each location. We only request that since it is a "Shared" trip, we would like all our guest to be at the return pickup point at a specific time. It was not a group venture because on the day of the tour we had a big group. The coach has a capacity of 52 seats, we had 53 guests. This left us with less than the minimum amount of persons to to dispatch another vehicle (our minimum is 4 persons) however, instead of cancelling or rescheduling, we decided to give you your own transportation as a good will gesture. On your next trip to Jamaica, we would love to take you on a Negril Day Trip to Seven Miles Beach! Please, give us the opportunity! There, you can walk 7 miles from one end to the next. Thanks for rating us! We look forward to seeing you when next you travel! Kind regards, Natalia M. Manager

It was ok nothing really special at all... We didn't eat at Margaritaville at all... we ate at a place nearby call Pelicans. Save your money on this one because to go to the beach cost an extra 12 a piece and it's not worth it in my opinion

You can catch a cab outside of your resort for about 5 USD and have them drop you off at Doctors Cove Beach. It costs 6 to get in to the beach included in the price of the tour, and 6 to rent a chair and another 6 to rent an umbrella not included in the price of the tour. From there, they tell you to walk from the beach to Margaritaville, as everything in between is the hip strip. They then pick you up from Margaritaville at a predetermined time. Then you could catch another cab for 5 back to your hotel note: Only pick the cabs that have red license plates. You can do this on your own far cheaper than booking this excursion!

Perfect excursion. Doctor's Cave Beach was beautiful and not crowded at all. Our driver informed us we picked a good day because no cruise ships were in port. We ended up staying longer at the beach, skipped the shopping and totally enjoyed lunch and festivities at Margaritaville. Mary H P
