The venue itself is a slice of paradise. The greenery, fountains, and the breathtaking ocean views, provided the perfect backdrop for our ceremony and reception.
The catering team at Sonesta Resort deserves special recognition for their outstanding service. From the tasting session to the reception dinner, the food was nothing less than sensational. Our guests raved about the quality and presentation of the dishes, and many said it was the best wedding meal they had ever experienced.
What truly sets Sonesta Resort apart, however, is their dedicated and accommodating staff. The wedding planning process was made seamless by Delaney, who guided us every step of the way and ensured that our vision became a reality. On the big day, the entire team went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly. They were responsive, flexible, and attentive to every detail, making us feel like royalty.
We can't thank Sonesta Resort enough for providing us with the wedding of our dreams.
