    The wedding of our dreams

    We visited El Convento several times before even getting engaged and were always blown away by its special character and beauty. From the first time we called Ely Rivera to discuss having our wedding there, she made us confident that the hotel could work with our budget and wishes to create a magical day. El Convento delivered! The entire team, from the bellmen to the wedding coordinator, was kind and professional. Our guests had an incredible time and so did we. All of the rooms were comfortable and lovely. The food was absolutely top notch, the presentation was gourmet and the flavor delicious. Ely worked with us on the bar/liquor to accommodate our budget - we couldn't have been happier with the final result. We highly recommend doing your wedding at El Convento, they will make the process easy, will help along the way with recommendations for other vendors and will execute your vision. They truly are a great team. Ely, Jorge, Sandra, Karla, Orby, Edwin, Frank, Caroline, Javier and many more who made this happen thank you from the bottom of our hearts, it was the best day of our lives. We can't wait to come back and visit El Convento. Ayesha and Marcus
