The Balboa Bay Club was amazing and our wedding was more than we could have dreamed of! The food was incredible!!! We are still receiving compliments! Allison and her staff were amazing to work with and from start to finish! They made sure everything was in order, we were on schedule and I had no worries about anything I placed in her hands! The venue was first class all the way!!!! Their rooms are incredible too, all of our guests loved the hotel!!

I cannot say enough about the Balboa Bay Club & Resort, it is the perfect location for a Southern California wedding. The "casual elegance" of the resort is wonderful, the food is truly incredible (our guests raved and raved about the food) and the service from the entire staff is impeccable. Allison Varela in particular went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was attended to and executed perfectly, she is amazing! The setting of the resort was so romantic, with the boats & the bay right next to us during our ceremony, and then the sun setting during the outdoor cocktail hour which was gorgeous. The Bayfront Lawn is more private and has a lovely garden feel, and the Commodore room has windows that look out to the bay and open up to a patio which made for a wonderful spot for the cocktail hour and for the bar during the reception. We could not have been happier with the venue and the staff, so check them out if you are looking for a romantic & elegant wedding on the water.

HOTEL STAY: My husband and I stayed here for our first night of our honeymoon and it was a WOW!!!! When you arrive at night, there are about a MILLION twinkling lights all over the hotel's exterior to greet you! There were very pleasant bell boys outside to help us out of the car with our suitcases, and be excited with us! The service was wonderful. The front desk let us know about the room service, the live band and dancing happening downstairs (although we were too tired at that point!!), and showed us where our suite was. It was absolutely huge and gorgeous. They really took care of us and for a fabulous price!! We had two balconies overlooking the marina, a full living room, 2 flat screen TV's, a foyer, a dining table complete with champagne, fresh fruit & cheeses, a canopy bed turned down with chocolates......a beautiful vanity for me in the bathroom, a jacuzzi tub and separate shower...his and her sinks....the list goes on and on! It was a magnificent place to stay, and I would recommend it to all, even my very best friend! :) Book in advance and worry no more!

Abbie Contreras (Senior Catering Manager) is an absolute joy to work with! Since I live in NY, a lot of my planning was via my mom; she and Abbie truly created the most beautiful dream of a wedding I could have ever imagined. Abbie and her team were able to accommodate every request, including tailoring our menu to our tastes, substituting the Chilean Sea Bass for a more sustainable fish, and even making my husband and my favorite holiday drink (mulled wine) for our cocktail hour. The room was absolutely stunning and my husband and I had the time of our lives! It was also so wonderful that our out-of-town guests were able to stay at the resort, and all said it was such a pleasurable experience. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this venue!

I could not have asked for a better experiance planning my wedding or at my actual wedding. The Balboa Bay Club's wedding coordinator was very helpful in planning the wedding of my dreams and was on site the day of the wedding to ensure that it ran smoothly. The Balboa Bay Club and their coordinator really made my wedding a dream come true.

After looking at over ten venues, we selected the Balboa Bay Club for our ceremony and reception. Abbie and Allison were terrific to work with, and were always friendly, sweet, and respectful of our budget. You don't need to hire an outside coordinator because they are so organized at preparing the details and timeline for each wedding. Everyone at the venue was helpful and professional, from the valets to our room block. I was completely stress-free the day of the wedding because they had taken care of every detail.

Our ceremony and reception site looked perfect, the food was delicious, and the service was impeccable. Yes, their food/drink is expensive, but you get what you pay for - I have never had food at a wedding that tasted like our food did. My relatives told me it was better than a restaurant! Hotel staff was terrific, waited on us hand and foot, and they went above and beyond with the appetizers and alcohol. The entrees were perfectly prepared and presented (usually not the case for event food). Even though we had to pare down a few things due to our budget, the catering group worked magic with our wedding. THANK YOU! Now I just need a friend to get married there, so I can attend another Balboa Bay Club wedding . . .

The Planning: I would suggest hiring an event planner for any wedding but the Bay Club was much easier to work with through our planner as she was more competent than the events director at the Club.
The Ceremony: They were willing to be very accomodating with a possible change in venue area due to the weather. We were lucky and the ceremony was beautiful.
The reception: During the wedding, the service from the waitstaff was impeccable. The food was of the highest quality and recieved rave reviews from the guests.
