    My husband and I and our guests stayed at this hotel after the wedding. They were so nice and used their shuttle to transport us from the hotel to the venue before the ceremony and back to the hotel after the reception. It didn't cost anything and was great because we had an open bar.

    Great Venue and Staff

    Ann and Sarah were so accommodating and helpful when planning my wedding at the newly renovated Cliffbreakers! They went above and beyond to make my day everything that I hoped it would be and more. When I signed on to Cliffbreakers back in January of 2018, I was a little nervous because it was still a construction zone; however, I fell in love with the passion and care that the staff had for what they do and was put at ease. All of my guests were in awe at what they saw too! Great staff, service, food, and atmosphere!
