Our wedding reception was absolutely incredible! The atmosphere was elegant, the friendly staff had everything (decorations, table settings, etc) set up just how I asked. The food and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) was very delicious. Everyone enjoyed themselves. The wedding planner - Maria Touloumis - was excellent. She is very professional, friendly and went above and beyond to make sure this day was what I dreamed of. We also got a free room to be able to stay the night at the Spa after our reception and enjoyed the pool the next morning. I would recommend Safety Harbor Spa to anyone looking for a beautiful place - inside and outside - to have a reception at!Sent on 06/16/2016

Professional with a personal touch
First, allow me to say thanks to all whom left their reviews on Maria T., they were all spot on. If you are a detailed oriented person, Maria is a great fit.Sent on 02/05/2019
Of the multiple venues we had visited, our experience at Safety Harbor Resort and Spa was the absolute best! Maria and the staff there are wonderful. Extremely attentive, patient and understanding.
We left our visit knowing that Maria would provide peace of mind and the support and coordination we'll need to plan our wedding. She listens and pays attention to detail. She provided her advice based on her extensive experience with such occasions.
She took her time to create a customized package to suit our needs and budget, offered great potential savings and treated us to a lovely brunch, to which of course provided us with the opportunity to taste and see the quality of their meals as well as experience the top level of service from the staff.
None of the other vendors offered half as much. We truly felt like we were appreciated and that our potential business was important to them.
I would highly recommend considering Safety Harbor Resort and Spa for your next event. It would be a mistake to not make an appointment and provide them the opportunity to earn your business. This is our last stop. Truly as the saying goes, we "saved the best for last".
The Safety Harbor Spa has been a very popular location for many of the most beautiful weddings we have done over the years! They are well organized, always have a backup plan (FL weather), and always make their brides a priority. Their ballrooms and outdoor spaces are equally gorgeous every time we put our flowers in an event there! Easy to work with!
Safety Harbor is AMAZING! Their entire team is so professional and prepared and they work so well with everyone. The space was fabulous, the outdoors were great for portraits and the food was wonderful. This is a great venue for any couple or corporation to host their events!
Great venue if you looking for elegant wedding location that is not on the beach but still has water views and beautiful ball rooms. Great customer service and lot of beautiful areas for pictures .
