Definitely should be a 5* (much better than the 5* down the road- I believe it's probably because they don't tick all the criteria, however, very clean, amazing staff, beautiful surroundings and exceptional food)
We didn't see the venue before we booked our wedding. Marios, the hotel manager, couldn't have been more efficient. Every email I sent, Marios responded either that day or as soon as possible. He continued to answer all my (many) questions before arrival which built my confidence in the hotel.
On arrival, we were greeted with a drink and cooling towels- perfect. We were upgraded to the best suite in the hotel and then had champagne arrive to our room in seconds. Believe it or not, it then gets better from there.
The venue was simply stunning....my hubby and I couldn't believe how well kept the gardens were (we own a landscaping company so we pleasantly surprised). We arrived on Sunday, met with Marios on Tuesday morning after the Town hall- we paid for everything then and were introduced to Caroline who took all my favours, table settings, places, games I had organised for the bar (straight after the service). I then spoke to Frank, who organised the music for the ceremony and was just lovely. He did exactly what I had asked for. All my items were returned back to me the following day. So from Tuesday 12pm- I could relax and soak up the sun before the big day on Friday. Friday came, I was woken with champagne at 8am (my friends organised this) and the magical day began. We booked Jill and Simon Hack for our photography, who were a lovely pair- made us feel at ease and managed to keep up with all the demands that we asked for- thank you so much Simon and Jill- you are a lovely couple and added to the perfection of the day. They arrived at 11am to take some getting ready shots. We had 10 people getting ready in the Beach Suites and there was plenty of room. We finished getting ready and Chris knocked on our door at 1.45pm to take us through the back route of the hotel. Chris was very firm in his demeanor but was lovely with it. He definitely made sure the day ran to time and smoothly.
The registrar was short and sweet and we had added our own readings from our good friends and one of our friends sang which the hotel sorted out the microphone for us, again great job.
We then had photos, where our guests drank at the bar- played games and ate canapes (my only one piece of advice is that the canapes were served as a buffet and guests took too much, thinking it was the main food- this would have been perfect, had it been served on trays to the guests)
Well let's talk about the food...oh yes before we do... let's tell you about the enchanting walk to the Rondavel....they had placed beautiful candles around the outside and put a ribbon (we had asked for) across the entrance so we could cut this and greet all our guests before they sat down for the main meal. The food was AMAZING- we paid 55euros for the BBQ Buffet- we had lots of beautiful salad to choose from, very tasty halloumi, all the meat you could ask for (and die for) and so, so much of it. The puddings were perfect which got us ready and in the mood for the dancing. Jorden and I had special service from the staff and all the staff were great with all the guests. We danced until midnight (The hotel's d.j played all the music we had requested) and Jorden and I walked along the beach, arm in arm, as a newly married couple...having had the most perfect day we could have ever asked for.
We booked treatments in the spa for the day before our wedding, the massage was amazing, we are very sporty people and it was very firm (just what we had asked for). We booked the his and hers package (85 euros) where we had time in the sauna and jacuzzi. The jacuzzi was a bath with jets so not as great as I would have expected but still relaxing) Sauna was lovely. Staff, again were fab.
Thank you so much Nissi Beach, Marios, Caroline, Frank, Chris and all the staff for making it so special. We will be returning and making this our family hotel. Thanks again,
From a very happy couple,
Jorden and Sophie
