“Wedding 30.06.2012”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

When starting to plan our wedding, there was no other place that could compare to LGM. Fantasit hotel, views and an amazing 18 greens. We booked the wedding 18 months before and had excellent service throughout. Archana is very welcoming and friendly, no request is too much for her, I remember one afternoon sending about 15 emails back and forth yet she was more then happy to assist. The food, mmmm the food was fab! All our guests couldnt get enough and many have been back since for the Value menu. The rooms, our guests who stayed could not beleive the rooms, they expected just basic rooms (which the rooms were porb basic for the hotel compared to others) 4 of our guests were so excited about their rooms and got myself anf my husband to go check them out, one cant wait to go back and stay as she loved the size of the bed and said she had not slept as well as she did that night ever. All in all was a fantasit night, Simon, Archana, resturant staff and bar staff were absolutely fantastic and made out day that extra special. I would highly recmmend people to have their wedding at LGM as, you really cant get better elsewhere! x

We held our wedding here on the 7th July 2012. The LGM really made our day special. The assistance from Archana and her staff was second to none. The bar staff were great fun and very helpful. The rooms we fantastic and very accomodating - even for all us girls, incl. 6 bridesamids, firned, flower girls, beauticians. Stunning views, amazing food and brilliant staff! We can't thank them enough.

We had a fantastic time and couldn't have asked for better service. The staff were wonderful to work with and very helpful. The venue, location, food, rooms and everything was perfect and made our day very special. They did a brilliant job and we cannot fault anything.

We recently had our wedding party at La Grande Mare, the staff were amazing in helping us achieve our perfect wedding dinner and dance, Archana the events co ordinator was a star.
The food was a massive hit with everyone and I will definatley be returning to dine at the earliest chance I get. Our own room was fantastic and very clean and spacious and all of the other guests who stayed commented the same.
all in all our time at La Grande Mare was PERFECT

We decided to treat ourselves to a over nights accomodation following a Wedding Reception at the hotel. Beautiful was the words we both said upon opening the door to our room. It was a real superb room and can't praise it enough. Excelent breckfast too.

Room Tip: Highly recommended!

We had the most enjoyable meal for £12.50 for three courses. We all enjoyed it, and will definitely be returning, there were lots of choices on each course. It was a lovely social evening and would definitely recommend it to family and friends.

From arrival to departure my husband and I were well-treated by all staff who greated us with smiles. The facilities are very well maintained as is the golf course, although we are not golfers. We swam daily in the indoor pool and it was too cold for the outdoor pool. The jacuzzi, steam room and sauna were also welcoming. The quality of the restaurant meals and drinks was excellent and food arrived swiftly. We paid £12.95 or £17.95 each for a 3-course meal and although we ate elsewhere twice during our week's stay, we ate at La Grande Mare during the rest of the week. Wine was also a good price. The view over the sandy Vazon Beach was great and there are often lots of surfers on part of the beach. We walked miles and saw most of the sights of the island including a trip to Herm on the sunniest day of the (quite breezy) week. I could live there!......I hope we can stay again in a couple of years, perhaps in the Autumn to see different flowers, which grow in abundance on the Island.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view unless you love golf: ask to overlook the golf course.
