"Beautiful property, nice scenery, and very warm and friendly staff, accommodating..."
"They are across the street from the beach but they angle outside ceremonies on property in a way that makes them unique. All the upgrades to the property were well worth it."
- Diane, Bride
"My groom and I could not be more pleased with our ceremony and reception...."
"The venue itself is absolutely breathtaking, and having the stunning views of the beach without the Florida humidity was priceless. Planning a wedding is undoubtedly stressful, but the Sonesta team made it easy with the catering selection and setup. During the event, the staff made us feel like royalty as well. They made sure we took time to eat and even made plates for us since we were so busy, we didn't have time to get them for ourselves. It was also a great value for a buffet, open bar, and cake. The view takes the cake though. The rooms for the ceremony and reception were equally as gorgeous and we were extremely happy with our decision!"
- Reesha, Bride
