The absolute BEST Mexico Wedding Venue!!
Similar to what other reviews have said, it really is hard to put into words how incredible our experience with Martoca was. We found Martoca relatively early in the wedding planning process and after reaching out for more information, talking to Jimmy on the phone, and seeing all of the amazing photos and videos we instantly knew it was the place for us. They made us feel so welcome from start to finish and everything was perfect. Truly the perfect wedding venue and you won't find a better group of people to work with than Jimmy, Mariana (our wedding planner), and the rest of the Martoca team. Our group had so much fun and even a month later everyone can't stop talking about how it was the best wedding they've ever been to. It will be the wedding of your dreams and exceed any expectation you could ever have.
I want to start the review off by giving an example of the outstanding service that they provide because I think we had a pretty unique day. We had our wedding on December 4th and that time of year there's an extremely small chance of rain and if it does rain it usually isn't for long. It just so happened that we were that small chance and it rained almost the entire evening. However, Mariana and the Martoca staff worked twice as hard to make sure that our wedding went as smooth as possible. Mariana showed that she is a true professional at what she does and made the right call every step of the way in order to make sure we got to do our cocktail hour, ceremony, first dance, etc. as uninterrupted and enjoyable as possible. The Martoca staff also worked so hard throughout the day from moving tables under the tent in the rain, hand drying everything, and constantly serving our guests while getting wet, and more (I attached a photo of them so you can see just how hard they were working for us!!!). We are really grateful for all of their efforts. While no one was expecting the rain, they showed that no matter the circumstances they will step up and make your wedding day the best that it can be and we all had an absolute blast and consider it even more memorable because of it.
Overall, the wedding planning process was seamless. I could go on forever about how non-stressful and easy it was because of Mariana but I'll keep it short. My wife worked with Mariana from the start and she was very attentive and responsive and quickly picked up on our wedding vision. She pays attention to detail and even surprised us with a gift and a table card wall - she will go the extra mile to make your wedding perfect.
The food was absolutely incredible too. By far the best food I've ever had at a wedding and it was like dining at a 5 star restaurant. Everything was so good from our appetizers to dinner and dessert to our late night tacos & churros. It's the type of food that is so good that people won't be able to stop talking about it.
We can't thank everyone at Martoca enough for making our wedding day so special. It was absolutely perfect and we'll reminisce on it forever.
Some other notes...
I feel it is important to touch on the COVID-19 aspect of our trip since I'm sure that is making some people hesitant from traveling or doing a destination wedding. I felt safe the entire time I was in Mexico. The taxis, hotel staff, and Martoca team were all wearing masks and following appropriate protocols. Everything we did was outside and we didn't have anyone in our group get sick from the week we were in Mexico and it is probably worse where we are from than in Mexico.
Photographer: Eva Sica of Ave Sol (https://www.avesol.mx/) - she is a very talented photographer and braved the rain to make sure we got great photos still. Would 100% recommend.
Videographer: Ventana Stories (https://www.ventanastories.com/) - we've only received a preview of our video but it already looks amazing and you can tell they do great work. Similar to Eva, their team worked so hard in the rain to make sure we got some awesome video content.
Hotel: Villa del Palmar Flamingo (https://flamingos.villadelpalmar.com/?partner=6513&utm_source=GMBlisting&utm_medium=organic) - was a good place to stay and affordable for all of our guests. We all enjoyed the stay and it was an easy bus ride to and from Martoca.
THANK YOU MARTOCA!!!

Best day ever!
I always get teary eyed when I think about my wedding at Martoca Beach Garden.Sent on 04/23/2019
I never thought about a destination wedding because when I thought about destination weddings I thought about resort weddings. One day I stumbled upon Martoca from Pinterest and Jimmy emailed me back almost immediately. From day one he was super responsive and helpful. We had never been to Puerto Vallarta so me and my husband were going into this completely blind. Jimmy was a god send when it came to suggestions on where to stay, where to eat and things to do in the area and just over all being there for us.
After almost a year we finally booked the venue. I was assigned Mariana and Salvador as my wedding planners and I could not imagine my day without them. They both went out of their way to surprise me with flower that I fell in love with. Mariana met me 3 days before my wedding and knew exactly what type of wedding I wanted (yes, we changed the look of my wedding 3 days before) and there was not one bit of me that was worried about how it would all come together. Everything was perfection. So many guest still talk about my wedding saying it was the best and most beautiful wedding they have ever been too. Get the fireworks, get the mariachi, and get the TACOS AND CHURROS! Food was fantastic, presentation and overall quality. All the staff and servers were great. The DJ was great. Everyone was great. I would have my wedding at Martoca over and over again.
