Family raived about how wonderful everything was, thank you for helping make our wedding weekend perfect !!
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.
It's a beautiful venue. Excellent staff. Everything went perfectly! The rooms are lovely!
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.
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!
Thank you for your kind comments and sharing your "windy" special day with us. It was a pleasure working with such an organized couple!
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.
Thank you so much for you great review. We are so happy you and your guests enjoyed their stay - and your wedding day was "perfect"! Please come stay with us again. And don't forget to send me photos!
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.
Everyone at the resort was very courteous and had all of my guests raving about coming back. The resort and venue is gorgeous and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and we even got to meet the owner who was incredibly kind! We will be back
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.
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.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We're so happy your wedding day was perfect! Hope to see you again at Beso Del Sol Resort!
We decided on this venue before they recently updated it... We were extremely pleased with the new look of the venue when we arrived! Absolutely gorgeous place and value. The staff was prompt and courteous. Beso Del Sol was definitely the best choice of reception venue for us!
So happy you were pleased with the "new look" of our venue and your wedding at our resort! Your photos are beautiful. thank you.
Beso Del Sol is a wonderful place to have your wedding reception or even your wedding. The room is right on the water with a beautiful view. Two stories with plenty of space. Pam Dawson took care of us and made sure everything worked out perfectly for us.
Thank you for sharing your special day with us and your kind comments. It was a pleasure working with such an organized couple!
I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place for my wedding! Getting married as the sun set on the pool deck, gorgeous! An the event space for our reception fit our amount of people perfectly. Pam was great to work with, really helped us out when it came to helping us out with how the tables and everything were going to be set up for proper planning.
You had such a gorgeous day for your ceremony on our pool deck! Thank you for deciding to have your wedding at our resort and taking the time to write such a complimentary review. Please tell all your friends looking for a venue to come and see our beautiful newly renovated venue!
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!!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our resort. We are so happy you and your guests enjoyed their stay - and your wedding day was "perfect"! Please come stay with us again.
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.
Beautiful venue... ............
I had a absolutely wonderful event! Pam was so very helpful! Her suggestions were right on the mark! And Edda was fantastic! She was a delight to have there! We used the caterer and the DJ from Pam's preferred list and both were fantastic! Everyone commented on what a beautiful view. My wedding was just as I had imagined it!
This was the perfect event. My only concern was the person who floated while guests were arriving and hung around. I thought it was rather invasive. Other than that it was fabulous!
So happy your event was fabulously perfect! Thank you - I appreciate your kind comments.
Absolutely beautiful location and beautiful room.
The venue was beautiful, we enjoyed to the 2 story set up. Pam was very flexable letting us view the venue many times & let us in with plenty of time to decorate.
Beautiful venue. It was the perfect size of our 50-60 person wedding. The renovations really made the room great! Pam was very easy to work with and responsive. My only gripe is that the bar was out of a beer they had promised and replaced it with something of less value and taste at the reception without contacting us. However, I would recommend this venue. The view from the room of the intercostal really made the night.
The venue was beautiful and my wedding was a dream! Everything l could dream of...was! The waterviews were amazing, the sunset was breathtaking! Mrs. Dawson was very responsive with my emails and did accomodate my multiple requests for visits. My only suggestions would be to allow the front desk staff to show the venue for drop-ins to see if available, instead of by appointment only. Also, although affordable catering was great (highly reccomend), it would be nice to allow use of customers choice for catering company and charge a non-refundable non-perferred caterer upcharge fee. These two things take away ftom the flexibility one has. All in all l would definitely use the venue again, l would reccomend it 100 percent! Thank you to all the Beso Del Sol staff for making my day so special!
I am so happy you had your dream wedding in our beautiful venue! You and Kevin were a pleasure to work with. Thank you for your suggestions. Our venue is shown by appointment only because in addition to weddings in our venue, we also host business meetings, birthday parties, etc. We don’t want to disappoint someone that has driven several hours to see the venue without an appointment only to be told “sorry, there is a meeting in the venue today and is not available to be shown”. In addition, our front desk staff can’t close the office to show the venue. Our three wonderful preferred caterers offer a wide variety of options and flexibility and were chosen to ensure our guests have delicious food, reliability and professionalism. Congratulations!
We used them for block hotel room and not for our wedding ceremony or reception. Since we had our rehearsal dinner there, our guests received an additional discount on their rooms. Such a fun and relaxing place. Plus Dunedin is adorable and gives guests a beachy/small town vibe with plenty of activities. Kids and adult friendly!
Great location! Plenty of room for event and decorated nicely. Since we had a casual, beach themed wedding, we didn't need to add much to the decor. They let us use the pier behind Marker 8 for the ceremony at no additional charge too. Since no kitchen at venue, caterers need to bring food already prepared, but our caterers had no issues. I would recommend this venue for many events.
Thank you for your nice review and recommending our newly renovated venue! The pier was such a beautiful spot for your ceremony.
We had no issues reserving the venue, it is a beautiful location on the water, our guests were able to reserve rooms also.....oue bartender was amazing she and Michelle did a great job making wure that noone was ever without a drink or refreshment........the only thing that I did not like about it was the fact that you have your wedding with guests arriving and there is no parking allowed on the site for those NOT staying at the resort, they had to walk from a lot about a 1/2 block away and unfortunately in heels, (for the ladies) and in the rain (unfortunately the one day of the week it rained) that was a bummer..the response my guests were told were, "well they should have gotten a valet"...my response to that is you have a venue that you want the public to book and you do not have adequate parking and a nasty response when asked about it, perhaps a little customer service training would be helpful (this was not indicative of everyone) and at the end of our wedding we were herded out by a woman just saying "OK everyone out lets go the time is over everyone needs to get out of the room and either go somewhere else or downstairs, I was part of the group being herded out so I know that it happened, I was trying to gather my gifts and make sure that all of my centerpieces found there way home with guests, needless to say I was not happy that I was hurried along,.................it was also a little hectic to get an email telling me to make sure the caterer knows that they cannot use the venues dumpster, hmmm that's not normal, and our linen vendor needed to be back at exactly the minute the event ended, when I did call him to let him know he assured me that it was ok that he went the next day, well wouldn't you know it I saw him at exactly the time I was being herded out and I asked him what happened, he told me that he needed to be back or they would charge ME a fee for late clean up, so not very flexible in these areas...
Thank you for choosing Beso Del Sol Resort for your recent wedding reception. We appreciate your kind comments about our location and staff. While there is typically plenty of onsite parking for both venue and resort guests, we do provide overflow parking directly across the street from the resort. Most guests simply drop their passengers off at the elevator to the venue and then walk the short walk back to the venue. Sorry for any comments you may have taken offense to from our staff regarding the need for a valet. All of the other concerns you mentioned regarding clean up time, trash removal, etc. were addressed in conversation and the rental agreement. Again, we sincerely apologize if for any reason this was unclear to you or you felt rushed. We would have preferred that you have nothing but excellent memories of your special day. Thanks again.
