Beautiful Waterfront Venue
The views from this venue are amazing! Our wedding ended just after sunset, and we got the most amazing sunset shots on the pier! Pam was friendly, knowledgeable, and great at answering emails and setting up meetings with us. Our wedding had to be rescheduled due to Covid, and they were so accommodating and kind through everything. Jackie was there to oversee the reception on our wedding day, and she was so sweet and helpful. The tiki bar downstairs provides the alcohol, and Michelle was great to work with for setting it all up. Our bartender for our reception, Coco, was super sweet and made sure that everyone had drinks at all times. All of our guests were raving at how beautiful the venue was and how spectacular the view was, especially at sunset. We even saw dolphins on the intercoastal during our reception! The prices for venue rental and bar service were very reasonable, and everyone was so great to work with. Overall, we couldn’t have chosen a better venue for our reception. I highly recommend Beso del Sol.Sent on 10/20/2020

Beso was perfect
Our reception at Beso was absolutely perfect. It was great working with Pam and everything turned out exactly as we'd hoped. We had 50 guests and the venue was the perfect size for our group. The guests loved the venue and the sunset views were amazing! We would definitely recommend Beso!Sent on 02/29/2020

We chose Beso Del Sol for our 50th wedding anniversary party. Completely satisfied with every aspect of using this venue.! The room is beautiful with spectacular views that were captured in our pictures. Pam Dawson met with us to confirm floor plan, table layout, & every detail. She was open to all of our ideas. She promptly answered all questions by email. On day of party, Jackie was there to meet us early to guide us in decorating. She stayed all day to coordinate vendors. From the time party started, she was quietly everywhere! Her assistance was so appreciated. We happily recommend Beso Del SolSent on 12/30/2019

Great location, wonderful value
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed having our reception at Beso Del Sol. The waterfront location was fantastic. Our guests all commented on how amazing the sunset was from the glass window wall looking out over Caladesi Island, and our couple photos from the Beso dock where perfect. The hotel is a great value, and the venue rental was also reasonably priced. The venue can handle 100 people maximum, but we found 92-94 to be a maximum when considering guest comfort and table arrangement. We'd highly recommend Beso Del Sol!Sent on 01/27/2020

Best place for a wedding weekend!
Just had my weeeknt at Beso on Nov 17th and it was an amazing experience! We chose the venue because we wanted a place where all of our guests could stay and play all weekend long...and what better way to showcase our beautiful hometown than to stay right on the water in Dunedin?! So the hotel itself is great because they have multiple room options - some with two bedrooms and a full kitchen. We had about 15 out of town parties and it was great to be able to have everyone in one spot and all meet at Market 8 for drinks/appetizers. The venue itself is beautiful. Overlooking Caladesi Island, the view and sunset photo ops were spectacular. The venue is a little weird because it’s two stories with a loft up top, so some of your guests won’t get to see the bride and groom during speeches, etc. but after dinner, everyone came downstairs anyway so it wasn’t a big deal. The wedding coordinator Pam was super helpful and communicative and the on-site coordinator on the day of the wedding was very friendly and helpful. My guests raved about the wedding! The out of towners were especially impressed. You do have to do everything a la crate but it was no big deal. I would highly recommend Beso for your wedding!Sent on 11/26/2018

You will absolutely not regret choosing Beso Del Sol as your venue. The views are amazing and you cannot beat the price! All of my guests loved the resort and my wedding went off without a hitch thanks to the wonderful resort and Marker 8 staff! They were responsive and extremely professional. The reception is already so beautiful it required minimal decorating on our part, not to mention our pictures came out spectacular! Pam was amazing to work with and I cannot stress enough how perfect my wedding ended up being!Sent on 09/11/2018

We had planned a beach wedding on Honeymoon Island, when that fell through due to weather, Pam at Besa Del Sol came through with a seriously last minute (same day) booking of their facility to accommodate us. It was a mid week wedding so we were lucky they had space. They had already set up for a wedding event, but worked to ensure our wedding went off without a glitch. Having visited their Marker 8 Tiki Bar in the past, and loved the view of the water, we were aware of the great views and waterfront location.Sent on 06/06/2017

We used Beso Del Sol for our wedding reception and they were great to work with. The venue is priced well, the organizer Pam Dawson was very nice and helpful. The only thing we would suggest is staying at another hotel overnight. The hotel rooms are pricey for what you get. They are decent rooms but, I have stayed at much nicer places for $215 per night. Also, our keycard was continually having issues and we had to have it changed out multiple times during our 2 night stay.Sent on 02/28/2017

Pam was so flexible and answered every question I had leading to the event! Her staff was professional, courteous, and the ceremony on the dock, in spite of some rough winds, went beautifully. My friend Vickie didn't have to do much with the vendor dropping off cake and letting others in because Pam's staff was taking care of that! The reception area was beautiful and our wedding theme blended effortlessly with it. Their bar attendant was excellent! I can't stop raving about them! Our guests were impressed!Sent on 01/25/2017

This was the perfect spot for us and I'm so glad we found it. Everything was so easy and so beautiful. We didn't even need a lot of decorations in the venue because it's just so beautiful on its own. Staying there with all our friends and family was so relaxing and we had so much fun. The staff were all exceptional, and we were grateful to them for helping make our experience so amazing.Sent on 11/12/2016

The staff at Beso del Sol were friendly, helpful, and professional. Pam was great in getting the day organized, and Heidi made sure everything went smoothly on the day. The venue is absolutely beautiful with stunning views over the Gulf. We had a lot of guests from the UK, and they couldn't stop gushing about it! We had around 45 guests and the venue still felt very spacious.Sent on 05/28/2016

The staff was amazing! Pam was so helpful throughout the process with my never ending emails and questions. Everyone's rooms were ready early allowing them to check in and not be late for the ceremony. We stayed in the penthouse the night before and the night of our wedding. It is a grand space that helped to make our wedding weekend amazing. The venue is gorgeous and perfect for an intimate wedding. The views are second to none and made for a gorgeous backdrop for pictures.Sent on 10/21/2015

The Beso Del Sol Resort is located in a beautiful quiet beach town which makes for an incredible wedding location. The resort is surrounded by water and the indoor venue has an amazing view. More importantly, the staff compliments the setting. Our wedding was scheduling to be outside but the wind did not cooperate that day. Nevertheless, the staff made a quick adjustment and moved our wedding inside the venue. The seamless transition, friendly staff, and amazing setting made this day perfect.Sent on 04/27/2015

Laura · Married on 03/01/2014
We had our wedding reception in The Sunset Room. IT WAS PERFECT!! The room is so unique & has spectacular views!! Everyone that we worked with (especially Walter & Pam) were just so sweet & friendly!! The majority of our guests stayed at the resort (including us) & it's beautiful. It's much more personal as it is a very small resort. However for us this made it more unique & personal (which is what we were going for). If you want a unique wedding that people will talk about look no further. Everyone there is extremely nice & helpful! We would HIGHLY recommend Beso Del Sol for your wedding!!Sent on 03/06/2014

Enjoyed our small wedding at the vrnue. Everyone of our guest enjoyed the ambiance and we all had a good time. Pam will respond within the day to any of your concerns gives you suggestions too if you need one. Easy to communicate. The view was breathtaking, it made the occasional a memorable one. We went down by the tiki bar for a picture of the sunset and the band sang for us. It's very nice too that we are able to stay in the hotel with all our out of town guess, most of our guess are from out of town and we are able to spend more time with them.Sent on 05/20/2016
