    Perfection

    We could not have asked for a more perfect venue. Service was impeccable, decor was fabulous and every last detail was what we wanted. They were incredibly flexible in working with us. Let Art Flower work with you on ideas for decor and you won’t be disappointed. Our friends and family can’t stop talking about how much fun they had! 10/10 would recommend to antone

    Better Than We Could Have Imagined

    We had our wedding at El Mangroove, and it was an amazing experience. We decided to do a small destination wedding (around 20 guests), so everyone opted to stay at the resort as well.

    The entire trip was great; every staff member - from the concierge, to servers and bartenders, to medical staff - was courteous and friendly (and they all knew we were there for our wedding; at breakfast on the day of the ceremony, multiple staff members came up to my wife and I to say congrats). Jennifer, our wedding coordinator, was incredible. From our very first email exchange, she was responsive and attentive to our requests. In addition to handling everything related to the wedding (ceremony, reception, menus, floral, hair & makeup, rehearsal dinner, welcome cocktail reception for our guests, etc.), she helped coordinate on offsite dinner for the entire wedding party during our stay.

    We had our ceremony in the Beach Forest setting, which was perfect for an intimate wedding (the beach is public, so there were people nearby during the ceremony. But it never felt intrusive, and many people clapped and cheered at the end of the ceremony). The cocktail reception was help in the Ocean Terrace, which could have hosted a much larger reception than ours - the younger attendees had plenty of space to run around and play.

    All of the food was excellent and flavorful - definitely not your typical wedding food. The atmosphere was very relaxed. Honestly, we can't enough about how pleased we were with the entire experience. Everyone who attended told us it was the best wedding they'd ever been to; my brother (who recently got engaged) even said he and his fiance are thinking about having their wedding at El Mangroove as well! If you book your wedding st El Mangroove, you definitely won't be disappointed.
