We had our wedding at OceanCliff in June and it was perfect. The staff went out of their way to make sure everything went smoothly and I have heard nothing but compliments from all of our guests. I even had my own server who was never in the way but always seemed to be right there the moment I need anything, even before I realized I needed it. The food was excellent and the view is incredibly beautiful. I highly recommend OceanCliff for anyone's wedding. All the vendorsthey recommended were just as amazing as well, with one exception. The only negative of the night was our band, Synergy. To say we were dissapointed is an understatement. They didn't play what they were supposed to play, tried to cut our choreographed first dance short (claiming to have forgotten it was choreographed) played Celebration (which was on our do not play list) TWICE. and they were uncomfortably loud, didn't tone it down even though they were asked to repeatedly and took numerous breaks just letting a cd play. And we were supposed to have a saxaphone player but there wasn't one. I would have given OceanCliff the highest rating but because the band was their recommendation it reflects a little on them as well.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- OceanCliff Resort was designed and built in 1864 by the architectural firm Peabody & Stearns from Boston who designed the original Breakers and Doris Duke's Rough Point both located on elegant Bellevue Avenue. A wealthy industrialist and member of Mrs. Astor's 400 Club originally used OceanCliff as a private summer residence during the Gilded Age. The estate remained a private summer home until 1954, when it was sold and later converted into an oceanfront retreat to host lavish parties and society affairs. Located on 10 acres of rolling lawns with spectacular ocean views, OceanCliff offers a truly unique blend of breathtaking beauty, world-class cuisine and a professionally trained staff to ensure meticulous attention to every detail of your stay. Twenty-four distinctly stylized guest rooms whisk you back to the 19th century with modern conveniences and stunning oceanfront views. OceanCliff's grand ballroom accommodates from 75-250 guests for dinner and dancing, while a variety of smaller rooms allow for more intimate gatherings. Set amidst the breathtaking splendor of the Narragansett Bay, OceanCliff has inspired generations of brides with some of the most enchanting landscapes in Newport, Rhode Island.
