Beautiful Venue!

Beautiful hotel and awesome staff!! We shortened our guest list from 180 to 50 due to COVID and Michelle was extremely helpful and understanding throughout the entire process. The wedding food was excellent and we received so many compliments. The outside garden is an absolute beautiful place for a ceremony and the ballrooms are gorgeous. We also rented the high tide lounge for an afterparty which was an absolute blast, the pool area was recently renovated which was very nice as well. We had an all around great experience and are so unbelievably happy with having our big day at Bahia Mar!!!

Absolutely the best! Michelle is awesome, and made sure everything ran smoothly. She is so much help and made us feel at ease on such a stressful day. Our ceremony was out by the intercoastal and it was so pretty. Highly recommend this place to get married!

I really enjoyed meeting Michelle Cannici. Their venue has many unique facets for those considering a wedding or other type of event there. You have a crosswalk to the beach. There is a special garden area with a pond which is great for pictures. You can hold a private wedding in the event space that overlooks the Intracoastal and yachts. Fantastic space for those guests who like a more private affair. The pricing points are great for the location, event space and unique facets of this venue. It would be a pleasure to work with Michelle.
