"[Margaritaville Beach Resort Ocean City] will provide an overdue, long-needed revitalization of an older section of Ocean City. It will expand the tax base, create jobs, and be an overall value enhancer for the neighborhood, community and the resort. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see something impactful happen at this location. As a brand-new, high-end resort hotel, it will serve as a destination location for couples and families who specifically seek a Margaritaville experience, and the family-friendly atmosphere Ocean City has come to be known by. Its numerous new restaurants, bars, pools, and other amenities will energize the community and the beach, and it will most certainly bring in a wave of new visitors to Ocean City, boosting tourism and benefiting the local economy."
-Curtis Campbell, Sea Mist condo owner, Ocean City

“The Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort has been an enormous success for our city.
