Words cannot describe how happy I was with the way everything turned out on our wedding day! Everything ran on time, the food was absolutely incredible (hats off to the chef), Monica (the event coordinator) was also exceptional, kept up to date info on all services and fees and ensured that our big day was exactly what we wanted. The Fantasy Ballroom was an extraordinary venue for our reception and our beach ceremony was absolutely beautiful as well! We had a fairly small wedding of 40 and had plenty of space to work with :) highly recommend this venue! It has been renovated recently so when you walk in you won't even notice it's a holiday inn anymore. Exceptional! Thank you!Sent on 12/30/2014

I just recently had my wedding at this venue on April 15, 2017 and I could not have been happier with how amazing everything turned out. Tricia was the best help we could have asked for.. Especially since I didn't know much about weddings or how they were ran. From the beginning to the day of.. she was patient, kind and ALWAYS willing to help as much as she could. The day of, was ran as smooth as ever and every detail of that day went perfectly. Juan, who was handling the food/bar aspect of the evening was also a huge delight- very polite and always looking to make sure everyone was accommodated. I can honestly say we had the best experience here, and was never disappointed with the services along with the venue. One thing I can promise anyone who is looking at this place is that even if you have any issues, they have a great team who will make sure everything is handled for you worry-free. My wedding was a dream come true and we couldn't thank Tricia and her team enough for all their handwork and time they put into making it that way for us.Sent on 04/25/2017

Let me start by saying thank you Erica Sommers.Sent on 01/28/2016
I must admit that I was a bit skeptical about having our destination wedding at the "Holiday Inn" but it turned out to be everything! We went with a garden ceremony and the emerald plated dinner with an additional hour of open bar. Our guest were impressed and we enjoyed every moment.
Erica is gem and the true definition of an awesome wedding coordinator.

My wife and I got married at the Holiday Inn Miami Beachfront last month and it was a fantastic wedding. Monica Tafur and her assistant Erica were amazing to work with and were a huge part of the success of the wedding. We visited over 20 beach locations from Key West to Deerfield Beach and the incredible value, beautiful facilities, and excellent staff at the Holiday Inn stood out from the crowd. The great staff and wonderful facilities made our decision easy and our wedding unforgettable.Sent on 03/25/2015
Neither my wife nor I were huge wedding planners, and we didn't hire any outside "wedding planner". Luckily for us, Monica kept us on point and made sure we secured all the right vendors and everything was considered and taken care of. On the day of, Monica once again took control and made sure the whole event ran smoothly from start to finish.
The Fantasy Ballroom at the Holiday Inn is a great setting for the reception with an entire window wall facing out over the balcony, pool, and ocean from the second floor. The option to have an outdoor cocktail hour in the garden with tiki bar or in case of rain indoors in the foyer is an important consideration and our wedding day had a good bit of rain so we utilized this option and it worked out great. Even with rain showers before and after, Monica and her staff went with our decision to roll the dice and hold the wedding on the beach. Although it was a rainy day, the rain abated long enough for us to squeeze in our ceremony on the beach!
If you are looking for a beach wedding, do yourself a favor and pay Monica a visit at the Holiday Inn. Thanks again for the wonderful wedding.

I can't say enough about the professionalism and flexibility required for my special event. Monica stayed in touch with me and arranged my Family Reunion event (which included far more people than originally expected) and everyone was delighted. The food was very good and the ocean view outstanding!Sent on 08/13/2014

Im not the easiest person to impress and I can be very difficult to work with but this team delivered! The Holiday Inn Oceanfront was a great location to have our wedding in Miami Beach. The value, professionalism, and service was far more than I expected. The catering & restaurant staff were very friendly and personable, and if you live in Miami, you know thats not easy to find. I can truly say Monica Tafur and her team delivered an unforgettable experience to ensure that everything went smooth on this day from before our ceremony, which had to be moved indoors, to our reception. Monica was very pleasant and easy to work with and she truly made every effort to honor our requests. I know I pushed a lot of buttons when it came down to requests but one way or another she made it happen. We had a buffet style wedding and the food was by far, one of the best hotel foods Ive tasted. All 156 of our guests loved the food and could not stop talking about how good it was. I highly recommend the Holiday Inn Miami Beach Oceanfront if you want to have an amazing wedding. If your like me, you'll think ten times before signing a contract but I promise you'll be very surprised with this venue and all it has to offer.Sent on 05/23/2014

Monica Tafur and the entire staff at the Holiday Inn and Sheraton Four Points went out of their way to make my daughter's wedding weekend the most perfect event. They were so accomodating as to purchase tiki lights and rent av equipment, at the last minute. The rental company just dropped off the overlays and chair covers and sashes, and the Holiday Inn just took care of it. Monica was there taking care of everything as if we had hired her for our wedding planner. She just wanted everything as perfect as we did.Sent on 04/28/2014

We are on the groom's side, we were responsible for the rehearsal dinner. We did a BBQ on the Green between the hotel pools. It was a absolutely beautiful setting. We had portabelo mushrooms, burgers, veggie burgers and pulled pork. All of the menu items were delicious. We had adults and children from age of five to ninety, everyone loved the food. The dessert bar was great. It was a perfect evening.Sent on 04/28/2014

The Holiday Inn absolutely blew our expectations away!! They were a pleasure to work with and made our wedding dream a perfect reality. I could not have asked for anything more. We had the entire event there from rehearsal dinner, the ceremony, reception, and day after brunch. The hotel catered everything and the food was AMAZING! They worked with us to create our ideal menu and created dishes off of the menu even for us. The hotel food exceeded our expectations not only at the tasting, but the entire weekend, and our guests' as well. Monica Tafur was a pleasure to work with really went above and beyond following up on everything and making our crazy requests happen; she was awesome! The rooms and hotel grounds were perfect. Our wedding was PERFECT!Sent on 05/01/2014
