We got a room here for a wedding, since the reception and wedding were here. Trouble began at check in. My husband dropped me off and went to pick up our son, and since he made the reservation, they would not let me check in, even with an ID and a credit card!! They had me call my husband, hand the phone to the person at the front desk, so he could get verbal ok to let me check in!!
My sister and I went to the restaurant to get lunch since it was an evening wedding, and we stood for 10 minutes before someone even came to show us to a table, despite the fact that 2 people saw us standing there, and continued to clean off tables and talk without even acknowledging us! After we were seated, we waited an additional 10 minutes and my sister got up to get us menus. Then someone finally came over. My sister told them we were here for a wedding and were on a tight timeline, and the server said ok. It took them 40 minutes to bring us a salad and a sandwich with chips!! And the dining room was not even half full.
The wedding coordinator had booked this wedding and another back to back, and continually called the bride's room where the attendants were getting dressed telling her --you can't be late, you need to hurry, the other family wants to start sitting down!!
When I went to sit down at the ceremony site, the preacher's wife said the coordinator told her husband he would have to cut the ceremony short because they were running late by 15 minutes! After the ceremony, a guest fell and severely hurt her ankle as there was a large step down between the pier and the sand. No one was there to help. The food was mediocre, and the help at the wedding was very slow also. They did not even pick up the plates from the appetizers until after the main course, so it was difficult to find room for everything on the table.
My advice--yes it is a pretty place, but there are many pretty places around. Be smart, pick another, and don't even thing of having your wedding there!
