The team at Cliffbreakers was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process of planning our wedding. Brandon was extremely responsive to all of our many questions. Anthony and Brandon were there during our event ensuring everything went smoothly. We couldn't have asked for a better venue or team. The hotel was gorgeous and the scenery can't be beat. I highly recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding!

The staff at Cliffbreakers was amazing. Holly and Brandon from the sales team did a great job of going thru all the details beforehand. They made sure all the notes were correct, were open to changing anything last minute, made sure there was enough staff to accommodate, and never put a sour face on. They were such a pleasure to work with. On the day of the event, our captain was Anthony. He did a great job at communicating and delegating tasks to his waitstaff. His waitstaff was amazing! My wedding was on New Year's Eve and they never made us feel that we were taking them away from their holiday. They were so accommodating and welcoming. We had so many little things that were going on that could have been a nuisance to others but they all helped and did it with a smile. They helped alternate favors on the tables, make sure all the chairs were straight for the ceremony (I am very specific), bring in new tables to setup NYE horns and hats, pull the balloon drop at midnight, and light fireworks in zero degree winter weather. We also were running about a 1/2 hour behind after the ceremony and though I am sure they might have been a little flustered in the kitchen, you never saw anyone from the Cliffbreakers staff bothered by it. They did a WONDERFUL job at executing our wedding day. They were so committed to making it the best day of our lives. Thank you!

We chose Cliffbreakers for our reception venue and, overall, are pleased with the service provided. Up until the final stages of wedding planning, our wedding coordinator was very responsive and went a long way to help us plan what elements we wanted. Toward the end, I had to initiate contact to make sure Cliffbreakers was paid on-time, and then on the day of, our reception space was not set up. We came to set up 3 hours after we were told we could come in, and the event from the night before was not torn down yet. It was a very large event, which we definitely understand, but all we received were excuses, and no one could get a hold of our wedding coordinator. In the end, we all rallied together and got the event set up, and luckily, guests didn't seem to notice or care about any errors (some tables did not have the right number of chairs at them, our head table chair set-up kept getting mixed up). Cliffbreakers did offer something to make it up to us, which we appreciated, but our wedding coordinator passed off his duties to someone we had never worked with before, which was odd. In the end, I suspect the bar package was either not advertised or executed correctly, and one of the dishes appeared to be off, but our guests said it was beautiful wedding. I would recommend Cliffbreakers to a friend with the caveat that you be very organized and willing to initiate discussions with your coordinator because they will not ask about all the little details for you... our reception went so well, in part, because our photographer and DJ worked together so well coordinating everything else (I highly recommend both of them—Holly Johns Photography and Jitterbug Events).

Cliffbreakers has some very lovely ballrooms. I fell in love with the chandaliers and the huge decks overlooking the river right away. The reception itself turned out beautifully, and the staff during the event were wonderful and very responsive, the main person in charge (I really wish I remembered his name) was excellent and constantly asking my husband and I (and my mom) if we needed anything. The food was also delicious!!!!! My complaint with cliffbreakers is with the event planner I was given, Mark. He kept us waiting over an hour for an appointment once, and he did not seem to care much about my wedding, perhaps because I was not putting down as much money as some of his other clients. Some of the things he said he was going to do were never done. It is also hard to get into your ballroom to decorate, because they book things in the same room the night before! So, many of my family guests who were staying at the hotel had to help out and decorate our ballroom the morning of. The hotel-desk clerks also were not responsive...they accidentely overbooked that weekend and gave away a bunch of our blocked rooms! Overall, Cliffbreakers is a BEAUTIFUL place to have your reception, and I was happy. The few complaints that I had were probably just due to two or three workers at the time.
