On Monday, June 30th, our daughter and son-in-law had their dream come true as they were married at the Courtyard by Marriott, Isla Verde. The overall experience was exceptional from the ceremony through the reception. Everyone at the Courtyard, from Barbara in reservations, Jatzel in Catering, all of the recommended vendors, and the entire wait staff could not do enough to ensure our affair was successful. We received nothing but positive feedback from all of our guests. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

I always knew I wanted a beach wedding but when I visited the Courtyard I knew it was going to be the perfect location for my beach wedding. I was a little nervous at first; planning everything from Boston but with Moraima's help everything went smoothly. At the Courtyard, the employees were very polite, attentive, responsive and helped me with everything I needed. The beach area looked gorgeous and the food was amazing. I was very happy with the service and I highly recommend the Courtyard by Marriott at Isla Verde for you wedding or event!

The hotel was a perfect location for our wedding. The beach view was perfect and the staff was professional. One gripe was the coordinator we originally worked with over the phone was not available to complete the coordination of the event when we arrived. Instead, two staff members were able to help us complete out requests for the wedding. They remained professional and helped us complete all our requests without incident.

I searched all around the island to find a hotel for my destination wedding and the Courtyard Marriott Isla Verde beach resort met almost all of my requirements for a ceremony/reception package. It was the only beachfront hotel that offered a variety of wedding packages, many of which included and open bar option. The staff was very flexible and accommodated requests, as I did not take one wedding package as offered. I was able to adjust/remove/add offered services without an issue. The food offered for the cocktail hour and reception were delicious. All oft guests were very happy with the choices. The Marriott also works with many wedding vendors, so having coordination was a breeze. The hotel is very close to the airport, so traveling guests were very pleased with the proximity.

We were mostly happy with our wedding and the hotel was beautiful. The weather want great, but that was certainly not the hotels fault! Michelle was great and worked with us to make our wedding beautiful. We chose this hotel since it was so nice, close to the airport and we liked the package which included almost everything. All in all, we were very happy and wouldn't change a thing.

We changed our original destination wedding venue choice 3 months before our wedding. Courtyard was near the top of our original list for vendors and we had been in contact with their sales manager a year before. We reached back out to her while in PR for a planning visit and we learned that they still had availability for our wedding date since May is a slower month for them. She scheduled us for an on-site visit on the following day, the visit went well and we ultimately booked with them a week or two later. The beach location for their wedding appealed most to us and the fact that they had a destination wedding package that could be modified to some degree according to what we needed. We had our own minister coming and did not need their officiant and paperwork services. About 3 weeks before our wedding our sales manager and assistant sales manager got new jobs and we were assigned a new person. We were somewhat unsettled by the departure of both of our contact persons, but the new sales manager stayed on top of everything and he was able to provide us with comfort that everything would be taken care of after we reviewed all of our open items with him on a conference call. We also scheduled a meeting with him on our day of arrival to PR (and he came in to meet with us on his day off) to review our plans and locations for the wedding/reception. We thought the the dinner plate costs were a little pricey, but compared to all of the other beachside venues that we researched in the San Juan area this was by far the best value location with the most beautiful beach. Keep in mind that the beach is not private, so there will be some resort guests that will watch your ceremony and be on the beach during your wedding. Our wedding was on Sunday early evening on their terrace location before their restaurant opened, so it was quite a bit more secluded than their garden area location for weddings which is right in the mix of the beach and poolside traffic of hotel guests.

She scheduled us for an on-site visit on the following day, the visit went well and we ultimately booked with them a week or two later. The beach location for their wedding appealed most to us and the fact that they had a destination wedding package that could be modified to some degree according to what we needed. We had our own minister coming and did not need their officiant and paperwork services. About 3 weeks before our wedding our sales manager and assistant sales manager got new jobs and we were assigned a new person. We were somewhat unsettled by the departure of both of our contact persons, but the new sales manager stayed on top of everything and he was able to provide us with comfort that everything would be taken care of after we reviewed all of our open items with him on a conference call. We also scheduled a meeting with him on our day of arrival to PR (and he came in to meet with us on his day off) to review our plans and locations for the wedding/reception. We thought the the dinner plate costs were a little pricey, but compared to all of the other beachside venues that we researched in the San Juan area this was by far the best value location with the most beautiful beach. Keep in mind that the beach is not private, so there will be some resort guests that will watch your ceremony and be on the beach during your wedding. Our wedding was on Sunday early evening on their terrace location before their restaurant opened, so it was quite a bit more secluded than their garden area location for weddings which is right in the mix of the beach and poolside traffic of hotel guests.

Michelle Cotto, the event coordinator, was very helpful. They were doing construction during our wedding, so Michelle did everything she could to ensure that the area looked beautiful for our wedding. We could tell thatshe really cared and wanted everything to be perfect. The banquet manager was also very helpful, she made the reception area look just as I wanted it to look. And Jazmin Rivera helped me with group rates for my guests rooms and was very accommodating when I asked her for an additional joining for my sister who had already reserved one room, but need another for her kids. The rooms were nice. We got a suite, included in our wedding package. Our room was really nice with a great view! The only complaint I have is something I didn't know about until after our wedding- our family and friends told us that the Marriott staff began cleaning up the buffet right after the last person filled their plate. So when my mother-in-law asked for another plate to get more food, she was "no", that's it. In my opinion, we paid for that buffet and they should have asked us what to do with the leftovers or waited until the end of the wedding to get rid of the food. We had several guests that wanted to take food home or get second plates while they were there. The food was delicious and there was A LOT of it, so realistically you might have to get 2 plates just to try everything! Other than that, everything was PERFECT! The ceremony area was gorgeous and led to great pictures!

Just had my wedding at the Courtyard Marriott Isla Verde and it was beautiful! A majority of my guests stayed at the hotel, and everyone loved how great the service was! The location was beautiful and food was very good! My only issue is that it would sometimes take the coordinator a few days/emails to get back to me about my questions.
The specific outdoor set-up for the reception was also not fully explained to me (the photos sent were not what the actual set up was). When I brought up my concerns about proper lighting on the grass and cover for the reception tables, they made sure to set up a tent and more lighting for us (thank god they did, because it rained a bit on the night of the wedding). They saw to it, though, that everything was set up perfectly, and the night was amazing! So happy we chose the Courtyard Marriott for the wedding, and will definitely return. They set up our suite with rose petals and chocolate covered strawberries on the night of the wedding. Nice touch!!

The Courtyard by Marriott in Isla Verde PR was gorgeous! I was a bit nervous to plan a destination wedding at a location I had never visited and had no knowledge of their services. The most challenging aspect of the planning for me was the lack of responsiveness from the sales staff. I am a very organized and detailed person, so when I take the time to compose an e-mail with 5 questions and they only answered half of what I asked, I was frustrated. It also often took a LONG time to get a response at all from them. There was also a lot of turn-over during my short 6 month planning process with them. I went through 2 Catering Managers, 2 Group Rooms Managers, 2 Restaurant Managers, etc. It was difficult to not have consistency. My biggest problem once I arrived onsite was that there is a service door to the kitchen literally behind where the isle was going to be for the ceremony. When I asked the sales manager what could be done she seemed surprised and said they would try to hang something. For a hotel that plans so many weddings, I find it hard to believe that I was the only bride who had this concern. She did not respond to my follow up calls or e-mails asking what was going to be done. The day before my wedding there was another wedding that was taking place in the morning. I looked at the set-up and saw a pretty, flowy white fabric piped and draped in front of the area. I asked that couple's wedding planner if that was rented for them or if it was the hotel's set-up. She let me know it was the hotels and would be what I would have for my wedding. If the manager had just said that I would have stressed far less. That said, in the end the event was beautiful and the food was good - everyone had a great time. I booked the Courtyard Marriott Isla Verde because of the view and the photos we would have; this part was perfect. I would recommend this hotel if you have the patience to follow-up with everything and not leave the planning to them.
