Heaven on Earth
Words will never be enough to describe how amazing our experience was at El Convento.Sent on 06/16/2019
This stunning location will forever be in my heart as one of my favorite places on Earth.
Every last detail about El Convento blew us away. Our ceremony was stunning and so many of our guests commented how they have never seen a place with so much charm and elegance.
The service was hands down the most spectacular of our lives. The servers kept our tables immaculate the entire night. They provided a 5 start fine dining experience. And my husband and I had our own server who made sure that we enjoyed food and drinks throughout the night.
And of course, Ely was a true professional and made the planning process so smooth and easy for us.

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 MarcusSent on 06/30/2019

Amazing venue and service!
I was suggested Hotel El Convento by my wedding planner Maria Lugo after understanding our vision for our wedding. Since I live in the DC area, I booked this venue sight unseen and relied on purely internet photos and on the expertise of my wedding planner. For those who are looking to do things the way I did, please know that the pictures of El Convento on the internet just do not do it full justice. This place is absolutely breath taking and the salon Campeche which is the room where we held the reception is truly out of a magazine! I was partnered up with Tary Jordan which was our hotel coordinator and she was amazing. Throughout the year of our planning, she was extremely responsive, attended each of my emails , and called me back to ensure any of my doubts or questions were answered! She was such a pleasure to work with and strongly suggest that you request to work with her if you have the chance! The service though out the night of the reception was above 5 stars! All of my guests were so impressed on how attentive the staff was and how well everyone was taken care of! This place has everything you can possibly desire in a wedding, 100% recommend!Sent on 06/12/2019
