“Lovely spot for a destination wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

I just spent four days at Las Terrazas for a destination wedding. I can see why the couple picked it -- the service was out of this world and the setting could not have been more perfect. The Las Terrazas staff was top notch and it felt like we were in paradise. Our biggest decision of the day was usually do we set up poolside or down near the beach.

We stayed in a three bedroom unit that was very spacious and had all of the amenities you could need including a full kitchen, washer and dryer, internet, flat screen TVs. The decor is modern and the beds were super comfortable.

The wedding was set up on the beach and following the ceremony we had a fun cocktail hour and delicious dinner (with lobster!). Everyone commented that it was not typical wedding food and for that we were pleasantly surprised. After dinner, we had a few more Belikins, rum punch, tequila shots and ended up dancing the night away, barefeet on the sand, under the stars. Such a fabulous celebration!

The resort is a bit out of the way but on-site there are kayaks, paddleboards and Hobie cats that you can use for free and you can rent bikes so that you can ride into San Pedro if you are looking for a little more bustle. You can also snorkel in a roped off area in front of the Las Terrazas beach. While the food at the resort is good, we walked along the beach for 15 minutes or so, to Capricorn, an oceanside cafe for lunch (heard they have good breakfast too) and then another 15-20 minutes from there to Palapas. The staff would also arrange water taxis as well so you are definitely not stuck though we were happy to enjoy the beautiful resort.

A lot of us enjoyed spa treatments at some point over the course of the wedding weekend. I had a deep tissue massage and thought it was wonderful. The actual treatment space is fairly simple, not what I had envisioned for such a nice resort, but they did say that you could get massages on the beach or in-room (I opted out of the beach because there were some bugs and in-room because of my fellow travelers). The other girls had mixed reviews on the mani/pedis but one friend had the coconut oil scrub and she loved it.

Three minutes away is White Sands Dive Shop - they organize scuba diving outings as well as snorkel trips. I finished my PADI open water certification with White Sands and would highly recommend whole-heartedly.

My husband and I could not have been happier with our vacation and wedding at Las Terrazas! The resort and the island in general are even more beautiful in person than on the website. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, going out of their way to make sure that we and our guests were happy and had everything that we needed. The wedding was absolutely beautiful and perfectly coordinated with little effort on our part, the food was delicious, and the service was impeccable. Easy access by water taxi to San Pedro, complimentary kayaks that allow on-site snorkeling, and a dive shop on the property were extra bonuses for an already amazing resort. I highly recommend Las Terrazas for any vacation or destination wedding!

Room Tip: The penthouse suites with the plunge pools are fantastic!

My husband and I spent a week at Las Terrazas. We were there with about 40 wedding guests, and had a fabulous time. Both the wedding and reception were on the beach, and were beautiful and well-run. The staff and accommodations are elegant and efficient. They set up our transportation to and from the airport, as well as our tours and water taxis. The resort is a little remote, but they offer on-site kayaking, snorkling, and sailing equipment. While the food at the resort is very good, If you want to bike or walk along the beach, it's about a mile to the Capricorn restaurant (great breakfast or lunch), about 3 miles to the Palapas Bar (super fun bar with really good snacks), or about 4 miles to San Pedro city (shopping and a great lobster burrito place). We had an unbelievable vacation, and November was a perfect time to visit. Thanks Las Terrazas!

I recently had my wedding at Las Terrazas. Planning a destination wedding can be difficult if you haven't been to the resort but I felt that my background in planning events help. Even if it wasn't, you can trust the staff at the resort will exceed your expectations. I had a vision it would go well but the customer service is remarkable. My wedding was beyond what I dreamt of and it's thanks to the staff at the resort that made our stay and wedding more than amazing. Besides the resort itself being clean, modern and comfortable; the food is really good. Don't fret because there's only one restaurant. There are options and if you see something that's not there just ask. The chef is very hands on and will work with you. All my family and friends had an amazing time and a perfect time! I can't wait to plan a reunion and already planning my next trip back.

We visited to attend a wedding. The facilities were spectacular and the service was wonderful. The staff went out of their way to attend our every need. You couldn't expect any better treatment. The food was great and the pool was beautiful. The wedding, the grounds and the service was all one could expect. Nigel was great too....

Room Tip: All of the rooms were beautiful especially the poolside rooms.

We had an AMAZING time. The staff was fabulous, especially the wait staff at the restaurant "O". (Jessica was our favorite!) We got a chance to visit a couple of the other resorts in the area, and I must say I was most happy with the size of Las Terrazas. It is smaller compared to some of the other properties, and much more personal. Every morning we were greeted by our names and they knew our breakfast order down pat.

Pool was BEAUTIFUL and we spent most of our time there. There is a dive shop next door which is where we departed for our snorkeling tour, which was very convenient.

I went with 5 other young ladies and had a blast. Can't wait to re-book for next year.

What a great resort! We had a fantastic time and the place was amazing but the staff made it even more of a great vacation. We went for a friends wedding and got to also enjoy some relaxing time. I would highly recommend this resort for vacation or even a destination wedding. It was awesome!!!
