“Out of this world beach weddings!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

My husband and I were married at Coconut Cove Oct.16, 2012 and we can not rave enough about the dedication, attention to detail, and amazing customer service the owners Paul & Magda Bates and their staff displayed to our 90 plus guests. The resort was booked by our family for our wedding and were greeted every morning with coffee and a smile from Patty. Patty would gather us every morning for the fish feeding at 10. I highly recommend Coconut Cove to anyone thinking of getting married in Islamorada, it is an amazing setting that offers fireworks, and the best of the best vendors. The Bates go above and beyond and make you trully feel special. We celebrated from 530 to 1215 and were free to continue as long as we wanted to. All of our guests rave about the atttention to detail that was provided, it was TRULLY AMAZING:)

This property was chosen for a small beach wedding we attended. Location was perfect and the staff were as accommodating as they could be. The manager, Patty did everything she could do to please all of the family and friends that stayed at the resort. Rooms were clean and typical for a island destination. Some of the extra bedding in the rooms needs to be updated like the single beds.They should upgrade more rooms to accessible for older clientele or for those who may be truly handicapped. I think they have one which is typically used for the bride when there is one on property.

I would return to this resort and recommend it to my friends.

The staff was very friendly. The pool was delightful but the pool area needed to be swept. The rooms need attention, which I did speak to the manager about and they were receptive to our problems, did not take it personally. There were ants in our room, we requested another room, there were ants in the next room too. The rooms have great jacuzzi tubs ! The outside area is lovely , very relaxing! Unfortunately there was no restaurant at the resort but there were places to eat not far from resort. Overall we were comfortable.

We had a wondering time staying at the Coconut Cove during the weekdays in October. The grounds were beautiful, and we felt as if we were on a deserted island. You can sip on your drink while laying out in the sun, or enjoy the "byob" tiki bar. Although the cottage we stayed in was a bit older, it was clean. Our experience here was more memorable due to the warm hospitality extended by the staff. Thank you, Patty, for making everything so pleasant.

Coconut Cove was the answer to having a beautiful Keys wedding and a place for our local and international guests and families to spend a few days together. I would encourage readers to contact me regarding many of the difficulties with Coconut Cove leading up to the wedding. That being said, the wedding was beautiful and the food and decor were great. Paul and Magda, your hosts and wedding planners have a very "cookie cutter" approach to wedding planning, so be prepared to be VERY specific if you choose to "break the mold"! The 20 rooms are half (10) acceptable and half (10) deplorable! The ten quirky motel rooms are the newer rooms and are housed in a building of their own. The bridal "suite" is only a "suite" if you purchase 2 rooms. One has a king size bed and jacuzzi tub and no shower and the adjoining room has a shower and smaller sleeping accommodations. The other ten rooms are small cottages (with kitchens)spread around the property. They are old and in horrible shape. The paint was peeling, the showers were moldy and dirty, there were actually holes in the walls aroung the shower and ants in the bathroom and kitchen area. The linens and towels were old, ragged and mismatched. I was the hostess for our 4 day stay, so I occupied cottage #10, figuring it would be the most central for entertaining during the non wedding times. The location was optimal, but the old stove in my cabin proved useless! Three of the four burners did not work at all, and after about an hour, I gave up on trying to bring some water to a boil on those tepid, barely warm coils. The days and evenings..... once outside your rooms... are lovely at Coconut Cove. There is a wonderful pool area and our hosts allowed us to serve refreshments, lunch and BBQ on their grill (with our supplies). A word of caution there, though.... you might want to bring your own grill as the grill is built into a space that appears large, but the actual grill space is very small, and I think we were the only ones to have cleaned it in awhile. We were permitted to use the "tiki bar" area to serve our guests drinks, snacks and brunch (that we supplied) during non-wedding times as well. Again, I welcome contact to personalize your individual concerns, but at the end of the day, Coconut Cove puts on a great wedding!

Thank you so much Paul, Magda, Patty & crew!! :D

Came to Coconut cove to attend a wedding although i didnt stay we had the rehersal dinner and wedding and reception on the grounds Food was amazing and i dont think the bride and groom could have had a more perfect wedding from the set up of the tables and alter to the release of butterflies and dancing under the moonlight with tiki torches and FIREWORKS!!! AHHMAZZZING!!!!!!!!
