Dale and I would like to say thank you so very much for everything and making our wedding day just perfect. You two (Paul and Magda) were such a pleasure to work with during the last year in preparing for our special day. We could not have been more pleased with everything (well it could have been a little less windy) and the two of you outdid yourselves. When I returned to my office my bosses had told everyone about the day and especially the fireworks and what a special touch that was for everyone, considering we told no one about them. Actually one of our guests thought we were going swimming! From the flowers to the decorations to the food, everything was amazing. We were so glad that we chose Coconut Cove for our wedding day and will highly recommend you and Coconut Cove to anyone we know getting married in the future. Everyone has said that this will be the most memorable wedding for them and one of the best that they had ever been to because it was so relaxed, the weather was beautiful and it went off without a hitch! We cannot wait to see the photos that Magda took in the coming weeks. We will definitely stop in next February when we are in town, as we have already booked for 2015! Again, thank you so much for a perfect day!

My wedding was everything I imagined and more. Magda walked me through every specific detail and relaxed me every time I felt myself turning into a Bridezilla. When they say your own private resort it is so true. My guests felt that it was completely private for our wedding party. It allowed for everyone to enjoy themselves knowing they were a step away from their rooms. Magda was also very accommodating and helped me in every detail not just on the wedding day. When we first met she said she is not happy until she hears guests say "This was the best wedding I have ever attended", she must have been overjoyed at mine because that is all we heard througout our stay. Plus another couple was so inspired by my wedding ceremony (which was amazing) that they decided to marry the next day. Thank you Magda and Paul.

Amazing wedding, amazing people!! Paul, Magda and Patti were the most loving and helpful people to work with. To top it off our kids had the best time of their life playing and getting to know Paul and Magda's children. It was such a blessing. I was sick the entire time but they just took care of everything and made us feel so special. The place transforms before your eyes and it is just magical. I am just speechless. We had a sand and necklace ceremony for the children and it was just beautiful. We love you Paul, Magda and Patti. Planning on seeing you this summer. Little bit is missing her buddy.

Planning a wedding is stressful and intimidating, but Paul & Magda Bates of Coconut Cove Resort were a BLESSING to work with! It wasn't until we were driving down the keys and I was running 10 min late for the rehearsal that I realized I totally can let my guard down with these people. I was stressed and called Paul to let him know. He was so calm and understanding and told me the rehearsal started when I got there. It was at that moment I realized 100% how supportive and trustworthy they were! They have our best interests in mind! The main reason I chose Coconut Cove is because I did not want to deal with all the little things. They deal with the cake vendor, linens, etc leaving me to pick and choose with simple ease and fun! On the flipside, when we came up with ideas that we wanted that weren't necessarily the norm, they worked with us to make our special day the best possible. Also, when I searched other wedding venues/coordinators, they hid all their prices! They would make you call and set up an appointment. For a bride on a budget, I did not like how other vendors "hide" their prices and lure you in. Not with Coconut Cove....ALL their prices are up front on their website!! This is great so you don't waste your time or theirs! You can easily do the calculating and know for sure what you will be paying. I doubt it is this way with most other places! There were so many positive, wonderful things about our wedding with Coconut Cove. I couldn't possibly list them all! They really know how to put together a wedding FLAWLESSLY including all the little details most people don't think about. As a girl, I always dreamed of wedding things like a beautiful beach setting, fireworks, etc but I never dreamed I could afford it. At Coconut Cove, you can!! Our guests had so much fun. Many will tell you it is the best wedding they've ever been to! If you want posh and uptight, this isn't the place. But if you want beautiful, relaxed, and fun...check them out.

I can truly say having my wedding at Coconut Cove was the best idea ever! If you’re not sure well let me tell you how AWESOME our experience was! From day 1 Paul and Magda made the planning process as easy as possible (the questionnaire was a life saver!) and the whole event was only limited by my imagination! Paul, Magda and the whole Coconut Cove team went into action. Paul was on top of all the pre-planning and Magda was my go to person the weekend of the wedding. They took my idea and made it into a dream come true. We had just about all our guest stay at the resort for the weekend and I highly suggest anyone having their wedding at the resort do the same! Together we saw the resort transformed from an awesome keys resort to my dream wedding within hours. The wedding and reception were so much more that I could have imagine. The coconut cove team was on point and ready to do whatever was needed to make sure the night went without any problems and they did an awesome job!!

Paul and Magda provided us a totally "stress-free" wedding!! Talk about having the world at your fingertips!! Scott and I had seen about 15 different sites in the Keys, and all the other places had strict "do-not" lists or were so out of our budget it wasn't even funny. Coconut Cove had EVERYTHING we wanted, and if they didn't, they knew someone who could provide it. I strongly suggest booking the resort (20 rooms) so you can have full run of the facilities without disturbing other guests. The food, bar, decorations, photos (sunset wedding is a MUST...great pics done by Magda who knows all the spots), officiant (Paul rocks!!!), DJ, flowers, make-up/hair, everything was top notch!!! They have book that you can look through to customize everything and a check-list to make sure you get what you want.

The only downside I experienced (call me practical), was the "Honeymoon suite". Don't get me wrong, the bathroom is BEAUTIFUL, however it is a huge tub with a short hose shower (you have to squat to shower... kinda had to shave your legs for the big night) with no curtain... can we say goosebumps? The staff provided us left-overs in the mini fridge (cause who can eat at your own wedding??) but didn't leave a note to let us know. Also, get with your bridesmaids to ask them to prepare the suite for the wedding night, because that was overlooked... Last thing you want is to do as a new bride is clean up all the stuff you threw around the room from getting ready for your big day...

I had always wanted a laid back destination wedding whenever I got married. Calling other venues in the Keys almost made me change my mind, until I spoke with Paul! He is so organized and easy to deal with! I never saw the venue before the week of the wedding. Through numerous emails and phone calls, Paul and Magda planned my dream wedding! Every detail was perfect! I keep replaying the night through my head, it was so magnificent I would not change one thing! Paul assured me everything was planned exactly how I wanted it, but it was so easy I couldn't believe it! They are so professional, yet still feel like family when you leave. Magda is like superwoman! She will make sure you have everything you want done perfectly throughout your whole stay, take amazing wedding pictures, and just about anything else you could possibly think of! The setting is probably the best in the Keys! You feel like you are in paradise! I didn't want to leave, and we will definitely return in the future!!

He is so organized and easy to deal with! I never saw the venue before the week of the wedding. Through numerous emails and phone calls, Paul and Magda planned my dream wedding! Every detail was perfect! I keep replaying the night through my head, it was so magnificent I would not change one thing! Paul assured me everything was planned exactly how I wanted it, but it was so easy I couldn't believe it! They are so professional, yet still feel like family when you leave. Magda is like superwoman! She will make sure you have everything you want done perfectly throughout your whole stay, take amazing wedding pictures, and just about anything else you could possibly think of! The setting is probably the best in the Keys! You feel like you are in paradise! I didn't want to leave, and we will definitely return in the future!! Read less

We had the most amazing wedding at coconut cove resort. Magda and Paul were amazing at making this wedding planning so stress free. Everything was all written up for us, the only thing we had to do was sit down and make the choices. Everything was provided there, every detail was outlined perfectly. I had absolutely everything laid out for me. Flowers, DJ, photography, officient, you name it, they were prepared. I would recommend anyone doing a beach destination to have it here. By far the most amazing wedding and most compliments from family and friends. No bridezilla or groomzilla needed here. No stress. And they work with you on a budget so you can have a beautiful wedding at low cost. By far more amazing than I even dreamed.

Coconut Cove would be the place I would have my wedding again and again and again.... It went by so fast and was so amazing that we are glad we had the whole resort for our family and friends for almost 5 days! If you need a destination wedding idea, this would be it....the weather, scenery and complete wedding planning provided by Paul and Magda could not be repeated anywhere else. I looked at 20 different venues in the Keys since my family has vacationed there for over 15 years and I wanted to have my close family and friends experience the true Keys atmosphere. Magda and Paul provided me with complete confidence that they could do everything and actually care more than anyone else since they are a family run business. Our local friends raved about the wedding and reception and that says alot as there are alot to choose from. I wasn't impressed with many other venues since most of those people don't own the business and thus do not care as much as Paul and Magda do. It was extremely easy to plan from 1000 miles away because Coconut Cove provides everything! Ceremony, Photography, Flowers, DJ, Video, Hair, Make-up, Catering, 5 Star Bar and FIREWORKS! The fireworks were a last minute add for us and it was worth the small investment for a lifetime of memories. Our pictures and video are amazing and the food and entire resort was perfection. We can't thank you enough for hosting our family and friends for 3-5 days of a wonderful vacation. We will definitely be visiting you next spring to say Hello! Thank you for making our wedding as beautiful and stress free !

Paul and Magda and their whole team did the most wonderful job with our wedding. They were so amazing and did the best job with our wedding. We could have never planned a more perfect wedding! Everyone keeps complimenting the ceremony, the food, the bar, the view, the decorations, and of course the fireworks! It was such an amazing wedding and they did everything that I had asked. They listened to what I wanted and didn't want. They really tried to get to know me and figure out how to make our wedding as special as possible. We cannot be more thankful for everything! We are so lucky to have had our wedding here and to have all of the wonderful memories that they helped create for us on our special day! Thank you all so much!!!!

Months later, friends and family are still talking about what a great time they had, and how beautiful our daughter's wedding turned out. Coconut Cove Resort & Marina is the most beautiful and (most important) private setting. All of the hard work planning every last detail perfectly was done by Magda! The table settings/decorations were perfect, right down to the cute salt/pepper shakers. The flowers by Magda were just beautiful and the bouquets very unique (they lasted almost two weeks!). Food was outstanding and the catering staff was very professional & kind (making special plates for late arrivals). The key lime wedding cake from Bob's Bunz was the best I've ever had - everyone was raving about it! Magda is also a very talented photographer, providing us with beautiful memories we can look back on for years and years. The wedding party and some of our guests also stayed at their hotel and made a mini vacation out of the weekend. They had such a good time that I am sure they will visit Paul and Magda again. Needless to say, we highly recommend Coconut Cove Resort & Marina to anyone looking to have the most memorable beach wedding!

Having a destination wedding at a location I have never seen nor know anyone that has ever seen made me a little nervous, not going to lie, but it was my dream to get married on the beach and I was willing to take that chance... I am SOOOOO GLAD I DID!!!
I had called a couple other resorts in the Florida keys to get quotes for our wedding, some told us that they don't do weddings in march due to spring breakers and others took weeks to get back to us. My now husband was helping me look since I was getting fustrated about finding the perfect place that was affordable and classy, not to mention they would actually get back to me in a timly matter. (not all of us are on island time :) )
He came across the Coconut Cove Website and asked me if I called them. I thought what the heck why not... BEST CALL I HAVE EVER MADE!!!
Paul and Magda where awesome. When i called or emailed with any question big or small they got back to me in less then 24 hrs. When we got there they took such good care of us... the resort was ours.
We stayed at the resort for 7 days and each and everyday Paul and Magda and thier staff made sure we were taken care of the entire time! I know we would have not gotten this kind of treatment at any other resort.
Then there was the wedding... i could have never dreamed that it would have been as spectacular as it was. They had every detail down, from the awesome amazing flowers (which all i did was send a couple pictures to Magda and she did the rest) to the table decore to they way they set up the guest book table and seating arangements. The food, I will go back and bring my 57 guest so that we can just enjoy the fantastic food!

Paul and Magda and thier staff truly allowed us to have a worry stress free wedding. Truly amazing!!! Everyone had an awesome and 2 weeks later Im still getting facebook messages on how awesome the wedding was!

I'm not sure how they did it, but they even got the weather to cooperate and we had beautiful evening ceremony :-) The location was beautiful. The comments that we have received in regards to the pictures that were taken by Magda is that they look like postcards. We would strongly recommend this location to anyone that is looking for a memorable beach wedding.

You can not go wrong here! Coconut Cove is by far a one stop dream wedding local. Magda, Paul, and their incredible staff take care of you as if you are one of the family. They want nothing more than to make you happy and make sure that you get everything that you want. Everything was absolutely incredible (the flowers, the food, the drinks, fireworks, pictures, etc.) I could go on and on about all the "little things" that they did to make it such an amazing day. If you are looking for typical this is not the place for you, but if you want yourselves and your guests to have memories that will last a life time, this is definitely the place. Don't hesitate, it will definitely live up to the expectations of a "dream wedding."

Absolutely amazing!! Paul, Magda, and staff made our wedding magical, wonderful and perfect in every way. From the day we met them they were professional, friendly, responsive and flexible. They handled virtually everything for us; ceremony, reception, officiant, flowers, music, food, photography, etc--exactly what we were looking for--and all handled in a way that allowed us to have exactly what we wanted. The answer to every one of our requests was always " we will do whatever you want that will make you happy". They promised a perfect wedding, one where our guests would say-- "this is the best wedding I have ever been to"--and many of them did! Weddings at Coconut Cove are not like a standard wedding in a catering hall that many of us have attended, they are a weekend party where people who have either not seen each other in a very long time or had never met prior bond, have fun, renew old friendships and establish new ones. Their staff is extremely hard working and attentive, nothing we needed or wanted was ever a problem, and they anticipated our needs well in advance of us even realizing we would need something!!! To sum up, never, ever have I been to such a wonderful wedding, and I'm so thankful it was mine!! Coconut Cove has our highest recommendation--there is absolutely no better place anywhere. Thank you everyone at Coconut Cove for making our wedding fantastic. --Karen & Andy

The wedding of our dreams was a reality thanks to Paul & Magda at Coconut Cove, and their staff! It is hard to even begin to do justice to them with words... I think they may have outdone even our dream! They were there to calm, give suggestions or just listen. All my guests were just awed by the beauty of the site and the ceremony with all the personal touches! The only complaint of my guests, was that I didn't warn them how emotional it would all be (of course, I wasn't prepared for that either!) The emotions are still fresh in my memory as I type this... such love exudes from Paul & Magda, their family and their place - it was magical!! My friend who has been to MANY weddings said they think our's was the best one they've ever experienced!! My sister's fiance' is upset as he doesn't know how he can compete with it! We are so thankful & blessed to have found Paul & Magda, and Coconut Cove - it was really a once in a life time, dream come true wedding!!

Our experience was completely stress-free. Our family and friends had a great time. I did not even have a chance to visit the venue prior to our event but could not have been more pleased. Everything is completely customizeable and the place was transformed for our special day. I would recommend going down a few days before your even so that you can enjoy the islands and relax. Magda did an amazing job with our flowers and was able to give me exactly what I had pictured without ever meeting me beforehand. The food was amazing but we wish we had left the food out longer as everyone was wanting seconds and thirds! Their menus are completely customizeable to meet everyones tastes and they were able to provide great direction on things that our guests might enjoy. Paul and Magda really take the time to get to know their brides and grooms and really make your day special. I would recommend a destination wedding at Coconut Cove to everyone.

My close family and friends cannot stop talking about how amazing the wedding was every time I talk to them! If you are looking for a destination beach wedding, this is the place to go. Paul and Magda are two of the most caring, loving people you will ever meet. This is what they do, make dreams come true, and you can tell from talking to them that this is their calling in life. Thank you, Coconut Cove, you made our dreams come true!

If you are looking for the perfect beach wedding in Islamorada, this is tne place for you. Coconut Cove & Resort provided my husband and I as well as all of our family and friends with a beautiful vacation, perfect wedding, and executed the entire event from beginning to end FLAWLESSLY. I never would have expected it to be even more perfect than I had dreamed of. Paul & Magda really went out of their way to make sure we had exactly what we wanted, at a great price, and at a personal level you could never get at another venue. The fod was amazing, the resort was relaxing and most of our family and friends stayed at the resort with us the entire weekend. My husband and I still get compliments on how great our wedding was 6 months later. I cannot stress enough how incredible our stay was because Paul & Madga took care of everything from hotel room accomodations, to photography, to flowers, the DJ, food, and the ceremony. Coconut Cove is the best in the keys!

We got married on 2/6/10 and Paul and Magda were absolutely great. They exceeded our expectations and made everything perfect!! Even though I was told to expect something to go wrong on our big day, not a thing went wrong. The venue and the decor were perfect. Paul performed a beautiful ceremony and did everything he could to make sure this day was exactly what we wanted and it was. Magda did a fantastic job with the flowers and everything was gorgeous. I cannot help but say everything was perfect. If you want the wedding of your dreams and a perfect day, definitely go to Coconut Cove. Everyone keeps telling us that it was a "fairytale wedding" and the fireworks topped it all off. Thank you Paul and Magda!!! We will remember this day forever!

Everything was perfect from the preparations, setting, and friendly service to the food and fireworks! Everyone from Laurie at the front desk to the wedding day staff were so helpful and pleasant. We didn’t have to worry about anything which was great! This was the second wedding for both of us so we were thrilled that we didn’t have to put it all together… They supplied all the vendors! I was able to rely on Paul and Magda (owners/wedding planners) to ensure that our wedding day would be perfect and it was! And our parents were very impressed with all the festivities. My mom even cried over the fireworks!
I have included some comments we received from family and friends:
“Yours was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever been too!” friend of bride
“The setting, your friends and your family really made for an enjoyable evening. Joy liked the fireworks” friend of groom
“I’ve never been to a wedding that had fireworks. This definitely puts yours at the top of best weddings” friend of the bride

I have nothing but amazing comments about Coconut Cove and the owners, Paul & Magda Bates.... Everything on our wedding day went together so well, actually it was perfect; all due to the great experience of Paul, Magda, and their wonderful staff. The best part was just enjoying our fabulous event... we were able to relax and soak up every beautiful moment.
The staff turned the already paradise-like location into a gorgeous tropical wedding site.
The food was absolutely delicious; couldn't ask for a more beautiful & yummy cake too (Thanks to Bobs Bunz!)
Magda is a phenomenal photographer... she really used all elements of the resort to her advantage (and ultimately to our advantage) The pictures turned out amazing.
The steel drum player was terrific, as was the DJ... the dance floor was full all night!
It will be a day (actually weekend) we will never forget...
We highly recommend Coconut Cove Resort for your wedding ceremony & reception.

Many of my guests said it was the best wedding the had been to! Because the resort is smaller, my family and I and my friends had the entire place to ourselves! Definitely go for the fire works, they add something spectacular to the day!

All of the guest were impressed by every aspect of our wedding and had an amazing time. Magda's photos were great and the photo book she made us is a beautiful format for reminiscing. I was able to send in photos of what I wanted my flowers to look like and Magda did a fantastic job replicating them. Paul and Magda were a pleasure to work with and they made all our wedding dreams come true. We would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a intimate beach wedding!

I had a very short time to plan my wedding. Paul and Madga, the owners, are amazing people. My family was astonished I found such a breathtaking resort with such welcoming charm. Especially when we got a little wild the night before the ceremony.

Paul was very easy to work with, extremely helpful and gave me great ideas to have a breathtaking wedding on a budget. Paul's humor and upbeat personality made my wedding stress free!

Madga was brilliant in her flower arrangements and photographs. She captured the life of party. All the pictures were absolutely incredible. One particularly reveals true love between me and my son.

Coconut Cove will always be a treasure of the Keys! I will definitely come back to visit Paul & Madga!

We found Coconut Cove when my husband's sister got married there. The ceremony was exactly what we were hoping to create, so when we started thinking about our wedding, we called Paul and Magda. When the planning began, we thought that we simply wanted to hold the ceremony at Coconut Cove and have a dinner after the ceremony at another site. Paul helped us to design the ceremony and then suggested sites to hold the dinner. However, as we got farther into the planning process we changed our minds an decided to hold the reception at Coconut Cove as well. Paul and Magda were always accommodating of our changing plans. We could not have been happier with our wedding - it was essentially a 36 hour party with a wedding in the middle. All our guests arrived at Coconut Cove the evening the before the wedding, and we had a cook out on the beach and relaxed. In the morning, we all had coffee and pastries at the tiki bar and socialized on the beach and at the pool. We then got dressed for the wedding, and held the ceremony. After the ceremony we held the reception at Coconut Cove and it moved at the pace we wanted. After the reception our family and friends continued to socialize until they were ready to turn in for the night. The next morning, we saw everyone off after coffee and pastries at the tiki bar. The service, food and photography were excellent, and we and our guests all felt welcome and well cared for. A couple years after our wedding, two of our friends held their wedding at Coconut Cove in the same style that we had ours. Their families thanked us many times for inspiring the perfect wedding. Thank you to our Keys Family for the perfect wedding!

Coconut Cove gave us an amazing wedding day!! They provided a high standard of professionalism and services personalized to us with a warm feeling as if we were old friends. I highly recommend having the family rent out the full property for the weekend and enjoying the local activities a few days before and after the wedding. The flowers, photos, food, decorations, and delicious cake all were above our expectations. The rehearsal dinner added another night to spend personal time with loved ones also highly recommended. Thank you Magda and Paul for the beat wedding we have ever been to :-)

My husband and I had an inimate wedding ceremony and spent the majority of our honeymoon at Coconut Cove. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The setting was beautiful and family oriented for my guests. Paul provided a personalized and memorable wedding ceremony. The flowers and photography by Magda were personal and gorgeous. Paul and Magda went above and beyond to help us make our day easy and unforgettable. Patti, the resort manager, worked hard to make our few guests feel like they were at home. I cant say enough nice things about our services and I would refer to Coconut Cove for a wedding or vacation in general. We plan to return to remember our special time and visit with our new friends in the future!

We chose Coconut Cove as our destination wedding venue because of the privacy it afforded us and all of our friends. The resort is not open to the public, so we were able to have the place all to ourselves since we rented all 20 rooms for the weekend. It is probably the closest thing you could get to renting a private villa. The only real staff are the owners, reception and caretakers - other than that you're basically on your own, and the party never stops! We all stocked the huge Tiki Bar 2 nights before the reception so our guests didn't have to pay $8 a drink like at some other resorts while lounging around their fabulous pool. Of course our actual wedding reception was catered, and the food was fantastic! They recommended an awesome dj, and the owners Paul and Magda officiated the ceremony and did all the flowers and photography - it could not have been any easier to plan since it's basically a "one stop shop." All around a great experience. Many of our friends said it was the best wedding they've ever been to!

My husband and I have visited the keys several times together over the past few years and got engaged in Islamorada, his parents have a condo there and he has been traveling there since he was young so it was an ideal place as we both love the warm weather and beach (but are from Michigan), we never imagined a wedding inside a banquet hall or something formal and stuffy so this was perfect for us! Especially the fact that we did not have to end the wedding at 10pm as you do at the surrounding resorts.
Paul and Magda were both very helpful and knowledgeable about all wedding aspects and helped immensely with long-distance planning. Magda was a great help going through every detail and making sure everything we imagined was done perfectly! The flowers turned out fantastic just what we had imagined. We brought some items to add a special personal touch to the ceremony site and her team made sure everything was just where we had planned! The fireworks for the first dance turned out amazing! The bar service and food was great, it was nice to have the buffet set-up so guests could pick and choose and everyone was very professional. The setting was perfect and allowed the guests to continue to stay and have fun later into the evening, very private and perfect for what we wanted! Many people said they had a fantastic time and could not have imagined a more beautiful setting and were very impressed by the food, atmosphere, set-up and decor.

Just a few minor things, the champagne did not come out until after the toasts and halfway through dinner so everyone was unsure if there was another toast coming or what they should do with it, and due to the tide we were unable to use the nautilimo for the groom entrance and our sunset cruise so that was a bit disappointing as we had been looking forward to that and had already paid for it. Aside from those minor things we and all of our guests had a great time!

We loved getting married at Coconut Cove! They really felt like part of our family while we were there, and we are so thankful for everything they did to make such a memorable wedding. Now a few years removed, guests who were there still tell us with sincerity that our wedding was "THE BEST WEDDING I’VE EVER BEEN TO".

What a jerk. Beautiful location, great sales pitch. Not treated like a valued guest and after spend $30,000 for a "dream wedding" I was left feeling disappointed. Over promised, under preformed.. Once you are there, you are left alone. What i would have given for a proper event cordinator. Someone to give direction and keep the wedding on track. Paul is not a nice person. Basically, sold a promise of "stress free" and given a crying bride and a quite car ride home. Oh, and the first night we had to ask Magda to clean up the used condoms all around the property. I didn't what my dog to eat them.... that's the truth..
