Amazing Staff and Facility
We held our daughter's wedding at Bahia Mar. Michelle Cannici and Alex (Banquet Captain) could have not been more accommodating. We also used the Bridal Suite the morning of the wedding, food was set out before our arrival time so it was great to have breakfast and mimosas at our fingers as soon as we walked in the room. The reception was extraordinary, we received many complements. We also held our brunch in the Harbor Lights room the next morning, that was equally phenomenal. Strongly recommend this facility for any special occasion.Sent on 03/05/2020

Beautiful Venue & Excellent Professionalism
We had an amazing experience from start to finish with the Bahia Mar. We booked the venue during the major renovations which were all completed by our wedding date. The lobby, pool area and rooms were upgraded and so nice! The new chic coffee shop opened shortly before our wedding and provided a cool spot for my husband and his groomsmen to have photos taken the day of the wedding. The pool area features a new bar with a pool table and a ping pong table and offers a laid back and/or fun vibe for your guests. There is a deli connected to the hotel that our guests loved as well for easy snacks or delicious boars head sandwiches and everything could be charged to their rooms. Now to the big day, we had our cocktail hour in the Grandview Ballroom and our reception in the Commodore Ballroom. Everything was perfect- the Grandview offers a beautiful ocean view - the late November date allowed perfect timing for the sun to be setting during the second half of the cocktail hour. The drink of the night and passed apps during the cocktail hour received rave reviews! Our guests loved the easy transition from the cocktail hour to the reception in the Commodore Ballroom. The Commodore was the perfect size for our wedding. Everyone loved the dinner and the night was amazing. Now to one of the main reasons why our wedding day was the BEST day of our lives- the Bahia Mar Staff. The customer service is top notch at the Bahia Mar. The valet and front desk greeted all our guests with smiles and went above and beyond to make sure everyone was taken care of. We felt like royalty our entire stay. The servers and bartenders were all amazing as well. We have saved the best for last-Michelle Cannici. Michelle is the Catering and Event Coordinator for the Bahia Mar and we were told she would be our "day of wedding planner"- she was so much more than that and provided patience, excellence and professionalism while working with us. She is the best and will make the wedding of your dreams a reality.Sent on 01/05/2020

We had the best wedding possible. Michelle went above and beyond her responsibilities. She was there to support us and made sure that everything went perfect. We have no words to express our gratitude. Thank you from Ronald and LizSent on 06/12/2019
Bahia Mar is an amazing place to get married! Working with Michelle is a stress free experience!
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.
I've done many wedding here and the people are so nice to work with, so helpful and timely. All my couples have left happy. Thank you for a great job.
