After looking around pretty extensively, we chose the Cliff’s for our October wedding and now that it is all finally said and done I can say that was one of the best things we did. Anna Fergus, their in-house wedding manager, is simply amazing. I cannot imagine a more kind, upbeat, professional, competent and understanding person who helped us every step of the way and knew just how to pull of the perfect event. We initially steered away from the Cliffs as we thought it would be out of budget, but after adding up the costs of other venues I reached out to Anna to put together a budget, and it wound up being great value. The venue is stunning; getting married on the water is pretty hard to beat. I cannot recommend Anna and her team at the Cliffs enough, she is wonderful!Sent on 11/09/2017

Our wedding was the best day of our life. Everyone says this and I never truly understood this until I said "I do". It truly was perfect. It's a special day, yet what made it perfect was having it at the Cliff's Resort. It is an absolutely gorgeous venue and location and they are so accommodating. I may have easily been a bridezilla if it wasn't for the wedding coordinator Anna Ferguson. She made sure all details were covered and that everything ran smoothly. She is so friendly, happy, and professional and I fully trusted her with everything. On my wedding day I did not stress about a thing. I simply relaxed and enjoyed being pampered. I am so happy with my choice to have my wedding at the Cliffs Resort. My expectations were exceeded. Thank you so much Anna!Sent on 10/18/2017
The Cliffs Resort ALWAYS provide the best weddings with the best beach ceremony view and access. Love this place and the staff!
The Cliffs Resort is magical. Somehow their slabs of beautiful marble and polished brass railings seem understated by their location on top of a bluff overlooking the Giant Blue Pacific Ocean. They have an absolutely incredible staff; each person more competent , kind, and professional than the last. They do everything well. You will remember the food, the wine, the service and the extra efforts put into each event. Trust The Cliffs Resort with all the details of your most important day, and allow yourselves and your families to enjoy the magic. Best Wishes! Colleen Rosenthal
We have been fortunate to work with Anna and her team on several weddings - always hard at work making the day a smooth one for their clients!
