Perfect Venue for our Vow Renewal Celebration!
Our 15th anniversary Vow Renewal Celebration at Hammock Beach Resort was absolutely perfect, everything we wanted. The location with the beach background was so beautiful! The staff was amazing! Sandra Oliveira, the Catering Sales Manager was wonderful, always helpful, nice and made sure everything went smoothly. Ilda, the Banquet Supervisor was equally wonderful along with the servers & bartenders. We had so many compliments on the food, especially the short ribs, really great. And many of our guests had never been to HBR and said they loved it. We are so blessed to have had this awesome experience!!!Sent on 11/16/2020

While getting engaged at Hammock Beach on July 4th, we noticed another wedding underway on the property. Wow we were impressed! It was gorgeous!Sent on 12/07/2020
When wedding planning started we just had this feeling we couldn't afford such an incredible, high end venue. Fast forward 5 months and Sandra has made all of my dreams come true! Sandra helped us plan an affordable but upscale wedding that blew everyone away AND kept everyone safe.
The planning started with a tour and budget talks. They have multiple areas on the property they host weddings, all of them are stunning. Planning a destinantion wedding was a bit chaotic as you can't just drive by and take a look at the place when you have questions. Sandra was very quick to respond to all of my questions about the venue via email and there was never a lack of communication from her. I am also thankful for Suzanne who assisted my guests with booking rooms and planning their stay.
Then the biggest bridge we had to cross was my gluten allergy. Not only did the chef agree to make me a gluten free meal, he made me and my other celiac guests replicas of each plate so we could enjoy with everyone else. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY does that! Its either all gluten free or you get a salad while everyone else enjoys a full meal. What a guy! Speaking of food, it was delicious. To this day I get compliments on how the food was appetizing, temperature controlled and most importantly, tasty! If you are worried about the quality of buffet food, don't be. Hammock Beach knows how to do it! They also made special last minute consessions I requested (due to lack of planning on my part!) If you have a special request don't be afraid to ask. If they can accomadate, they graciously will.
The property is well maintained which made for great photo ops before and after. Props to the ground crew/maintinence and housekeeping who maintain such a large venue with such high standards. You see how much they care by how well everything is maintained and manicured. Bravo!
What is a good review without the constructive criticism? Every wedding will have a few hiccups so it wouldn't be fair if I didn't mention them. The salon leaves a bit to be desired as far as wedding hair and makeup. The prices are on par with outer companies however the facilities and training of staff are not. If you are wanting a glam look with highlight and contour and perfect hair i.e the works..their artists are not for you. I had to have my makeup trial twice as the first didn't go well. I had a very simple hair style and it fell within an hour. I also had my moms hair "done" They charged $90 to flat iron..and she has straight hair. That didn't include wash or cut. Just running a flat iron through it. The stylists are very friendly though and with some training and a better facility this could be such an awesome amenity that more guests would utilize. I do 100% recommend a facial with Christina if you have time. She is incredible and it is so worth the $$.
I was pretty bummed that the outdoor pool and hot tub close at dark which is 5:30 this time of year however Carleigh from the kids club set us up with an awesome fire pit that we rented for $200 (several hours) and set up on the Champions lawn. It came with a bottle of wine, enough smores for 30 people, seating and much more! It was the highlight of the entire day as we really got to spend quality time with friends and family that were staying at the resort. I highly recommend this activity for those that have brunch/early weddings.
I won't leave without mentioning Covid since that is what everyone wants to know about. We did scale back our wedding to only 50 guests in light of the pandemic. With the help of Sandra we were able to social distance appropriately and keep everyone, including both grandmas safe. I can confidently say with all the measures taken, no one became ill that attended the wedding.
Overall I had a phenomenal experience working with Hamock Beach and I am forever thankful to those who exceeded expectations to really make my day special.

Loved by absolutely everyone - the perfect wedding venue in Florida
We got married at HBR September 29th - and I will say that I couldn't have been more pleased with the venue, the hotel staff and the all over experience. All of our guests couldn't stop raving over how beautiful it was at Hammock and everyone had an amazing weekend - calling it more of an 'experience' than just a wedding.
We had a few issues with the booking site - but all were solved promptly by HBR. They also switched our coordinator a few months out from the wedding which was something we ideally would've seen not happening - but in general this wasn't a big issue. We also wish there would've been more of a 'wedding suite' for the bride & groom - we stayed in the same 1BR/1BA as 'everyone else' and I personally would've loved an upgraded room.
We had our rehearsal dinner at HBR as well which worked out great. The prices to rent equipment etc was ridiculous for a few items (projector etc) so we rented these from our DJ instead for 1/3 of the price.
I can recommend HBR for anyone looking for a venue with ocean view and who has family and friends travelling in to meet for more than just one day. The Breakfast at Atlantic Grille while watching the dolphins play in the ocean was a big hit for our friends. The free put put golf course everyone loved. Adult Pool Area and a volleyball tournament will not be forgotten. We hope to come back one day - and suggest HBR to include a 'anniversary rate' for married couples to return to HBR a year or so after their marriage here ;)Sent on 10/02/2019
