We recently had our wedding at the Carefree Resort in January 2013. Overall, we thought everything went great for the weekend. Below I will break down each of the services we used and how we felt about them.
The wedding itself went great. Emily Kix was the Catering Manager, and she was awesome. She is a great person to work with and made the day go smoothly. There were only a few minor things that were missed or forgotten on our wedding day, but oh well.
For our hotel stay, we were there for 6 nights. Overall, as with other stays when we've been here it went great. The hotel rooms themselves could definitely be updated. They are very spacious and the beds are really comfortable, just a little outdated in the rooms. The hotel room lighting is very dark. They need to make the lighting brighter in each room.
The van driver Audrey was great. She is very professional and does a great job to make sure the guests enjoy their ride and their stay at the hotel.
My new husband and I will most definitely be coming back to the resort to relax and enjoy the surrounding restaurants and outdoor activities. Thanks to the Carefree Resort to an overall great experience with our wedding and hotel stay.
