Great venue for a great cost.
Had my wedding here, it was a great venue with beautiful views. I loved being able to bring outside vendors and alcohol as well as being able to rent for the whole day and not just a few hours giving us times to prepare and clean up.Sent on 05/07/2019

My husband and I booked this venue through Orange Blossom Caterers and it was exellent, clean and beautiful. More than enough space to fit our Wedding Guest of 15 people. I will use this venue again. It was beautiful.Sent on 06/02/2012

Beautiful Beach Venue
We has our wedding at the Civitan in April 2019. The venue is absolutely wonderful. It is perfect doe those wanting an outside beach ceremony with reception inside. The Civitan was very clean and had majority of the basics needed for a reception. It is also located very close to many lodging accommodations and restaurants. Lauren was a great help along the way. If we had to do choose a venue all over we would definitely choose this place again.Sent on 05/03/2019

We had our wedding there July 2019. Great location right on the beach. Small town feel for the venue. It was perfect for destination wedding crowd. The AC needs a bit of work. They had put new flooring in which totally made the place!! Needs a little work, however it has a very old soul type feel which we liked about the venue!Sent on 09/17/2019
Huge Bridal suite!!
Only negative thing I would say is they have high turnover with staff, which leads to miscommunication.

This venue is absolutely beautiful and perfect for a beach wedding reception, however dealing with orange blossom catering to rent it out is an absolutely awful experience. We weren't allowed to decorate ahead of time, I had to fight for everything with them. They wanted everything cleaned up and removed from the venue the night of the wedding and it wasn't until I fought with them that I was finally allowed to get my things the next day. If they had someone else running the venue it would have been much better. The venue itself is great, and being able to decorate yourself, and bring in your own alcohol is definitely a plus, it turned out beautiful and the space was perfect for what we wanted.Sent on 12/07/2015

If you are thinking about booking here, just make sure you get in writing that their air conditioning is functioning properly. Probably in your contract with them. By far the worst and most embarrassing experience I have been through in a long time. My wife and I had our wedding here at the Civitan just a few weeks ago. It was over 80 degrees in the establishment upon arrival. Our guest were leaving cause of the heat, wedding cake was falling over, and to top it off they blamed us for the air conditioning problems. I spoke with a very rude man that sits on the board of directors for this beach club. Really wasn't impressed on how he went about handling the situation. Before booking any event I highly recommend in your contract that the air conditioning is functioning properly. Once they revive your money they could careless about the event or out come. I was told and i quote "I would be lucky to get a $250 refund" for the issues I had with venue. For spending over $1300 you would think they would be a little more sympathetic or at least show they cared a little bit. PLEASE THINK TWICE!!! Now the Orange blossom catering they recommend was great did above and beyond what was expected from them!! I would highly recommend them for your event. Very professional, helpful, and most important their food was amazing. By far over exceeded my expectations.Sent on 11/20/2015
