On June 20, 2020, my fiance and I were priveleged to get married at Skopelos at New World. I say privileged because it truly is a privilege to use this facilty. A month before our wedding Nancy reached out to me because her venue became available, and she worked tirelessly to help me fit this venue into my budget. She gave many welcomed suggestions. Her staff went above and beyond, not only for my fiance and myself, but our entire wedding party and families. From the front desk ladies, to John the man who wears 5 hats, to GIGI, and her side kick. I feel bad, but I can't remember his name. They spent time setting up our tables, bringing in extra table and chairs. Dori would open up for us to bring and drop items off before the wedding, and we enjoyed the most amazing Brunch after our wedding. I'm telling you the entire staff is absolutely amazing. Whenever a problem would arise, they would jump in and help fix it immediately. Between Nancy, Dori, Gigi, John, and the rest of the amazing staff, my day wedding week was perfect, and would could not have been happier. You will not be disappointed choosing Skopelos at New World!!!! Michelle Leitner FrySent on 06/24/2020

THE TOTAL PACKAGE!! Rooms were very nice, especially the bridal suite. Rehearsal dinner was great. Ceremony in the courtyard was picturesque. The reception rooms were very nice and well equipped for any event. Best of all the personal customer service was really good. Nancy was very accommodating and sweet. My daughter's wedding went off pretty much without a hitch. What attracted us to this venue over others was that they offered just about everything, so we didn't have to hire too many vendors. We were very satisfied and would recommend this place to anyone.Sent on 03/13/2018
