    One word: AMAZING. Our wedding guests raved about the hotel as our ceremony and reception site. It was beautiful, the staff is friendly and responsive, and our guests loved being walking distance from the wedding itself, the water, and yummy restaurants!

    We felt so at home with our coordinator Nancy. She took care of every detail and I spent the wedding day completely relaxed knowing that her team was taking care of everything. We had our dream wedding day and the beautiful Oceano was a big part of the reason why.

    The Oceano is just an outstanding venue on the coast. You have the water and harbor for a beautiful backdrop along with an attentive staff to make your wedding day go smoothly. Jen and Nancy in the events office are very knowledgeable and so nice to work with! We highly recommend them :)

  • Charleton Churchill Photography Wedding Photographers

    Love, Love, Love this Venue, and those overseeing the weddings are top notch! I can't recommend them enough!

  • Jasmine Wang Photography Wedding Photographers

    Oceano Hotel is one of the most beloved wedding venues for me over the years - the cute, vintage and beautiful hotel provides the most amazing experience. It's really close to the beach, we have gotten the most amazing beach photos for pretty much every couple! and the wedding/event planner - Nancy, Jen and Laurin are so pleasant to work with! They really go out of the way to make sure you get what you need and feel like home. Again, love the hotel!
