I can't say enough good things about the Reef. Pallie was our wedding planner and she was AMAZING. She was so easy to work with and incredibly responsive. She was definitely on her game 100% of the time. The day of, the guys couldn't figure out how to put their boutineers on, and she went up to their room and took care of all of them. She also spent about 25 minutes with my MOH and me the morning of making sure we had everything we needed and helping to keep me calm. We had a torrential downpour halfway through our reception on Seacliff Terrace, and Pallie actually left her family at 9:30pm and came back to our reception and was amazing in finding us indoor space so we could continue our reception. Our DJ was not going to finish playing because his equipment got wet, but she talked him into playing for us. The staff was amazing. Jamil was our F&B lead for our reception and our breakfast the morning after and he was amazing. The location is absolutely gorgeous. Everyone that attended had a fabulous experience and is still talking about our wedding.

We had an amazing wedding at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef! Our wedding coordinator Sarah was a perfectionist who made sure everything went smooth as can be! We had a small group of 15 people, which allowed us to host several events along with the wedding. The night before we did a happy hour at the Rum bar so our guests could take in the harbor lights. We got married at the Gazebo followed by a late lunch at the Sunset Grill. The food was amazing! We then rented out the Fury boat and took everyone on a sunset cruise. It was all flawless and our guests are still commenting on how beautiful the property was and how much fun they had. The brunch we hosted at the Aqua Grill was delicious and even the coffee shop at the Presto Café was memorable. You and your guests will not be disappointed at how beautiful the property is, the amazing views and all the options you have to make your wedding as special as ours! Thank you again Sarah, Marriott and your amazing team :)

This was an absolutely beautiful place for our wedding ceremony & reception. Our wedding planner was Pallie Gilbert, she was so easy for work with! She took care of every single detail to perfection. I sent her descriptions & photos for inspiration of when I had envisioned & she made it reality. I will say, I gave the responsiveness a 3/5, not because of Pallie but because of the initial response time from the events department. I received the ceremony & reception contract on 08/05/2016 & sent it back & paid the deposit very quickly, within days. Initially, the sales department told me I would hear from my events coordinator in seven to ten business days. It took numerous emails with the sales department to finally get a response from the events department TWO MONTHS LATER on 10/07/2016 to inform me that Pallie was on maternity leave & would be returning in November. Hindsight, it was worth the stress/anxiety to await Pallie's return. But it just seemed that the responsiveness was lightening fast until the contract had been signed & the deposit paid; then it seemed as though my wedding was not a priority & there was no communication between the sales & events departments. After Pallie returned from leave, the planning process was smooth sailing! Day of, she had everything aligned & sent up perfectly.

The ceremony & reception themselves were flawless. We used the wedding gazebo which is such beautiful place for a ceremony. There are also MANY scenic places for photographs on the grounds of the resort; scenic overlooks of the water, a waterfall, rocky areas, the beach, palm trees; it'll look like you went all over the island for different backdrops, but you won't have to!

I will say, to avoid the salon at the resort for you wedding hair/makeup. I would recommend hiring a professional hair/makeup person. They aren't professional makeup artists in the salon there.
