We had the La Varita Buffet and the food was excellent!! Very authentic tasting Puerto Rican food. Juan Carlos was very flexible in allowing me to substitute the alcoholic beverages for the reception when I selected the Open Bar Standard. Pros...the value for the food and drink was exceptional. Cons....no running water in the bathroom facilities during my event. It appears that Puerto Rico is currently in the midst of a drought. Therefore, the surrounding San Juan, PR areas are restricted to no water usage on certain days of the week. I expected for Soleil Beach Club to have hand sanitizer available for guests to use, knowing that there was no running water. Or at the very least, for there to be water in reserves (in plastic bins or buckets) so guests could wash their hands. I was embarrassed that my guests had to encounter this awkward episode.
If you like the idea of finding a venue that's off the beaten path for both ceremony & reception with a one stop contract selection, then this is the route to take. However, please be aware that some of the vendors and/or services quoted are overpriced. If you're on a budget and have the time to do so, I'd shop around before signing the contract with the suggested vendors from Soleil Beach Club.
We held our destination wedding here and it was awesome! People raved about the food, which was fabulous! Juan Carlos was a great host and our wedding here was said by all to be the best experience they have ever had! Thank you for making our wedding one that will never be forgotten! !
Juan Carlos it was a pleasure working with you and your team for our reception!!! The food was amazing (the best food of my entire stay in Puerto Rico) !!!! The service was outstanding!!!! The view and admisphere was picture perfect if I could have this experience daily, I would!!!!! If you want to experience the heart of Puerto Rico Soleil is the place to visit!!!!! A diamond in the ruff!!!!
We did a lechon for the Friday evening welcome dinner and it didn't disappoint! The price was VERY reasonable and the food was amazing. We highly recommend them.
We just had our destination wedding at Soliel Beach Club, and it was more than we imagined it would be. They truly transformed the venue into everything I wanted. We are so happy how everything turned out. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful with the endless ocean as our backdrop. Veronica took care of all the decorations, cake, flowers, etc., and I did not have to worry about a thing. Juan Carlos was very accommodating throughout the whole planning process. The food was amazing. All our guest mentioned how delicious and fresh our food was. Thank you Veronica, Juan Carlos, Juan Pablo and all the staff for making our beautiful wedding memorable. I highly recommend Soliel Beach Club..

Excelente para bodas.. Lo recomiendo, ellos hicieron todo x mi (ya que vivo fuera del pais)
Excelente comida, decoración, servicio entre otro!!! Gracias club Soleil!
My husband and I organized everything through emails and a couple calls. Juan Carlos and Juan Pablo were very flexible, and accommodating. We chose Soleil based on the other good reviews, because it is located on the beach, and it's close to San Juan. We had a pirate wedding (all our 18 guest were dressed as pirates) and we asked for the lechon. The food was delicious, everyone loved it. Saul, the DJ he had the majority of the music we have asked for, and he made sure that the dance floor was never empty :) Veronica, who decorated the place, accommodated all of our needs.

When my fiance and I, Maryland residents, decided to have our budget wedding in Puerto Rico, we had no idea where to start. After some research and some advice from blogs and friends through friends, we were able to find a couple of locations right outside of the San Juan area that fit our budget and provided all of the necessary wedding things (tables, decor, ceremony, music, food, etc). We can say with 100% enthusiasm that we are could not have been happier with Soleil Beach Club! They were absolutely amazing, so accommodating and generous with us.
My fiance was able to stop by Soleil just once in March 2013 to check out the venue, while he was visiting family in PR, before putting down a deposit. Once he gave the go ahead and said he liked the place, I was the one in charge of communicating with the head chef, Juan Carlos, and the event manager, Juan Pablo, for all of our wedding day details and menu. They were wonderful to work with and made the stress of planning from a different location so easy and carefree. The menu options were very robust and Juan Carlos allowed us to come up with our own custom menu. The food was AMAZING! We had a more traditional Puerto Rican style menu that consisted of all the yummy fritter-type appetizers, pork loin and mahi mahi for dinner, rice and beans, salad and amarillos for sides. And then we opted for their home made flan for dessert instead of a traditional wedding cake. People are still talking about how good the food was at our wedding weeks later!
Juan Pablo was great to work with as well. He helped us with recommendations for shuttle services for our guests, with booking the DJ (who was excellent by the way!), and with all of the small logistics of the day. His wife Veronica is contracted to work on many of the decorations and she did such an amazing job of turning the upper deck into a airy, classy and relaxed setting. It was absolutely beautiful! All in all, they made our experience one we will never forget!
Soleil Beach Club is the perfect spot if you don't want a cookie cutter resort wedding. It's located right on the beach with stunning views. The rustic charm is amazing. The staff is absolutely terrific! The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. They are willing to work with you on the menu and will accommodate your wishes. However, brides who are not familiar with the area should be aware that the location is very "local" and you will be immersed in the local culture. If you have your ceremony onsite, expect that there will be locals watching your ceremony. You may even see the mounted police ride through.
Great location, food was very very good however, our event was at 11:00 am and the staff was still setting up the bar area. Once our service was over we wanted a drink. :}
Over all was a great time had by all.
Thank you to all the staff involved.

Soleil Beach Club es el mejor sitio para hacer un evento ya sea familiar o social , donde la calidad del servicio queda muy por encima del costo y además puedes disfrutar del bello paisaje playero de Piñones.
From the moment we walked into Soleil, we were struck by the welcoming and relaxed atmosphere and how friendly the staff is. Sergio (the manager) was amazingly easy and pleasant to work with. We had the traditional Puerto Rican menu (with lechon a la vara) and everything was delicious! Our guests had so many compliments about the venue, the location (right on the beach), and the food. The only (relatively minor) issue was securing parking for our guests, but it was resolved before it became a problem.
Sergio and the entire staff at Soleil were all awesome! All of our guest had a great time and the food was EXCELLENT! The set up on the beach was also perfect! Thank you again!
We had the traditional pig roast for the rehearsal dinner and it was fantastic. Everyone (including friends from Puerto Rico and a guy from Mississippi that owns a BBQ restaurant) agreed the pig was done to perfection. Upstairs is really open so people can mingle, staff was really responsive, and view is great. Definitely beats a stuffy dinner at some restaurant. Sergio was responsive during the planning phase as well – something you’ll come to appreciate if you’re planning a wedding in PR.
