Absolutely first rate start to finish. The quality of service was unmatched in today’s world. It’s now my go to venue in Dan Diego!
We held our son’s wedding at the Kona Kai Resort out on the Marina overlooking the harbor. It was magical, joyful and magnificent. The service was impeccable, the food exquisite and the only problem was that no one wanted to leave!! Our hearts were full and we will never forget this experience!Sent on 05/25/2021

Kona Kai surpassed all my wedding dreams!!
The Kona Kai Resort is a hidden gem in San Diego for weddings! My husband and I knew we wanted our wedding in San Diego, but weren't sure where so we toured practically every single venue. Kona Kai was the second one we visited and no other venue could top it. It was everything we dreamed of for our wedding day. It had the most beautiful ceremony locations and outdoor reception areas. Plus having the hotel on site was perfect for getting ready on site, the restaurant is delicious for all meals, and the location is a perfect vacation get away for our out of town guests (and ourselves!!)
Our 200 guest wedding date was originally scheduled for Spring 2020, however due to COVID we had to post pone to the later than summer. During this time, the catering services team was on leave due to COVID, so we were put in touch with the director Jeff Hornick. He was so understanding of the situation and helped us pick a new date. However, by summertime 2020, restrictions were still in place and my husband and I knew we wouldn't be able to host the wedding of our dreams, so we postponed again to Spring 2021. Once again Jeff and the Kona Kai were so understanding and graciously moved our contract again. Then by Spring 2021 there was still so much uncertainty that we made the decision to drastically cut our guest list to 25 people and make many modifications to event to meet all CDC guidelines. By the time our wedding date finally came, it was so nice staying at the hotel, our ceremony location was breathtaking, and we got to enjoy a cocktail hour, dinner, cake, champagne toasts, and dancing with our family and close friends. The wedding was a lot different than planned, but it was everything and more than we could ever have dreamt of.Sent on 05/21/2021

The reception was on the terrace right in front of the Point Loma Ball Room. The view of the Marina could have not been better. The staff was very helpful and attentive during the entire event. Our coordinator Jeff Hornick was responsive and helpful, even during the very uncertain times of COVID. Food was absolutely amazing, hands down the best wedding dinner I have ate. Wish we could have stayed the entire week. The Kona Kai Resort is beautiful! Cannot beat the location and views. Ohhh and the balcony from our suite was dreamy! Can't wait to stay here again for an anniversary date.Sent on 04/21/2021
