Our wedding ceremony and reception held on the beach/marina grounds was magical - along with a full moon and a great ocean breeze it was perfect!

Prior to my wedding, I had never been to the Florida Keys. I booked the venue after doing some google searches and review reading, and just crossed my fingers that it'd be half as nice as it looked online. La Siesta did not disappoint, and in fact, far surpassed my expectations! Not only did it provide the perfect backdrop to our ceremony and reception (people say our pictures look like postcards!), but it was also a great place for all of our family and friends to get together before and after the wedding. Between casual get togethers at the 5-bedroom house (where my parents and siblings stayed for the long weekend), hanging out at the awesome pool in the middle of the resort, or going out on the (free) kayaks and paddle boards, we just could not have had a better time.
Alan and Grace were amazing in helping me get everything in place and checking in with me the day before to pin down details. The hotel staff was also incredibly accommodating and attentive, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. They're in the process of renovating the resort, so I'm sure the place will be even nicer the next time we visit).
We had the ceremony and cocktail hour on the beach and the reception on the lawn of the executive house. With decoration help from Caribbean Catering and Blue Water Weddings (and using Floral Fantasy), it looked AMAZING. And with a steel drummer from Events My Way for the cocktail hour and DJ John Terry (from Kiss Me Entertainment) for the reception, it was the best party I've ever been to. I really had very little time to put towards planning, but all of these vendors were able to figure out exactly what I wanted with minimal input!

This place is a hidden gem. We had our ceremony and reception on 9-19-15 at La Siesta and it was beyond a dream come true. We wanted a relax wedding where people could roam around and enjoy the beauty of the Florida Keys. La Siesta provided this and more. Our ceremony was in the yard of the house and the reception was in the beach area. We have 175 guest who fit comfortably.
The guest accomodations were clean but rooms can use updating. Property is in the middle of being remodeled and should be done by end of the year.
I would pick La Siesta 100 times over it was PERFECT.
