The hotel was beautiful, and centrally located. We held our rehearsal lunch, the bridal shower, and a "fun in the sun" day for out-of-town guests. Also, the bride stayed there before the wedding. All experiences there were great. The restaurant worked with us to create a menu for our wedding party at the rehearsal lunch, and sat us on the beachfront. The staff was very accommodating.
For our beach day, the rental company had reasonable rates for us to take paddle boards and paddle boats. The one incident we had with them was that they initially told us that we could just put down a card and rent at-will, but they later had to change the policy because of memorial day weekend. We ended up having to guarantee a minimum rental to reserve boats, but it was all taken care of weeks in advance, and in the end, they ended up not charging us for some of the boats that we did not use.
The bride had a little more trouble holding her bridal shower, but considering that she was trying to have a smoothie bar and a couple table massages without renting a community room, I'd say that it all went smoothly.
We got a room for ourselves at Catamaran in the tower. The view was fantastic. The room could use a little updating, but the location, view, service & brunch on Sunday were all first rate. I would highly recommend it.
Excellent. The staff was wonderful, the spa was clean and gorgeous!!! If I could do it again, we would have stayed at the Catamaran.
