"Oh my god is all I can say!"

"I looked at every venue from the ritz Carlos in palm beach to the Boca resort and the ballroom and the room could not be beat for the price. The views and the ballroom is maginificent. The hotel could not be more accommodating to our guests. We had a black tie Saturday night event . The staff knocked it out of the park. The food was amazing . I was shocked . Best food I ever ate a wedding and thank god bc it was my daughters . Chef Terry and his wait staff know customer service and how to make there guests feel extremely special. His seafood, sushi bar, fillet and everything else was made to perfection . My friends are still talking about his baby lamb chops. The catering staff is the best Iv ever seen! There are no words I can say about how amazing there planner Annette Winkler is. From the get go, she was warm and living yet extremely professional at the same time. She helped make this night for my daughter into a memory of a lifetime . Before you look at any place on the beach , this should be your first and last stop. It gives you a 4 seasons and ritz Carlton vibe with better views and better prices. They are the best kept secret in Fort Lauderdale. I would do it for my daughter all over again."

"Annette was absolutely amazing. I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with and make our big day come together..."

"She was extremely responsive to texts, emails and phone calls. I never had to reach out to her more than once. Her attention to detail is what makes her so amazing at her job. She kept me sane and kept me assured that our big day would be amazing (to the best of her ability). Annette came to visit me in our Master Suite to check on us. This meant the world to me. Thank you Annette for everything you did to accommodate us before, during and after the event.

I would also like to applaud Desiree, the server at my mother’s table, she went above and beyond to ensure my mother was accommodated, from getting her drinks, helping her collect the décor at the completion of the event even helping her carry some of the items back to the room. Desiree, you were incredible and it made all the difference to my mother. Thank you for being so helpful and kind. Lastly, my husband asked me to mention the quality of your beds and pillows. They were heavenly and made our nights rest after an extremely stressful and busy day that much better."

"Our experience at Sonesta was amazing, beyond words...."

"We had a Sunday wedding, and our family stayed at the hotel the whole weekend. The service was spectacular, the rooms clean and very well spaced. I had the most beautiful and captivating views for our wedding, that penthouse has stunning backdrops. The food, oh my good, the food, simply delicious. All of our guests mentioned how beautiful everything was and how great that food was. Annette Winckler, the event planner and manager, did such an incredible job providing us with all the information we needed and the best accommodations for our weekend wedding. In terms of the reception, the staff was the BEST I could have ever asked for, specially Williams and another Hispanic lady that took care of us and serve our food. EVERYTHING was perfect as we wished. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change anything about it. My now husband and I are very thankful with all the staff that made this dream possible. Thank you Sonesta!!!"

"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 it 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!"
