Get Rebecca Glenn as your wedding planner and you won't have a worry in the world. Rebecca is amazingly agile and went above an beyond to accommodate all of our plans. Rebecca, being the specialist, knows what's best, what to expect, and is very proactive when it comes to details. The staff was amazing when it came to the wedding day -- everything went amazingly smooth. We had 130 guest's and just about all of them said that it was by far the best wedding they'd ever been to. The weather was amazing, though it says rain via the US forecast (ignore it) it will rain for about 5 min (if that) and then pass. The resort had enough space to where our guests weren't bumping into each other at all moments of the day, the amenities were great, we truly felt everyone got their moneys worth staying at the resort. Those who chose to go a more affordable route and stay elsewhere, regretted it. We just so happened to get an upgrade to a beautiful 2 story suite that we were able to use on the day of the wedding to prep in. Wedding food is tough to please the crowd with -- people couldn't stop raving about the carving stations that we had, salad station, and mind blowing paella station. Our bartenders during the reception were favorites of the night (ask for the Lucy special) and our housekeeping staff was on point. Couldn't have asked for a better wedding week!

Pallie Gilbert was our wedding coordinator at the Frenchman's Reef. She is phenomenal! Id be the first to admit that I was the ultimate Bridezilla and she managed to put my mind at ease. She was extremely responsive, she would answer questions prior to me even asking them (which was a plus, plus). Everything ran smoothly and perfectly. The resort itself was clean, and welcoming. We plan on visiting again next year.

My wedding is scheduled for October 2015. The ceremony is taking place at the Gazebo and the reception on the beach, catering by a third party. Although it has not taken place yet I am 110% satisfied with the service I have been receiving thus far. My planner is the most helpful person thus far throughout this planning process. I will keep you posted as the event takes place.

It was absolutely gorgeous! Everything went perfectly. Our wedding planner, Pallie, was amazing. We did a sunset wedding and it was everything I dreamed of for a destination wedding. I would recommend this wedding venue to anyone.

If I had to give you one con it would be that the front desk staff at the hotel were not very helpful with room questions (managing a large group of family and friends at a hotel you're bound to have questions) however we just asked for a manager or our wedding planner and they were able to easily clear up any issues we had so it was no big deal!

My husband and I were married at the Frenchman's Reef resort in May 2015.

Our wedding planner was Rebecca. She was top notch and provided superb customer service throughout the entire planning process. She was consistently responsible and provided recommendations and inspiration ideas as requested. She delivered everything she said she would and I couldn't have been more pleased.

The rehearsal dinner was at the Coco Joe's location. Rebecca worked with the restaurant manager to reserve seating for our party, customized menus, and drink tickets. It was really fun and the food was terrific.

The wedding ceremony was on Saturday at 5:00PM at the wedding cazebo. It was a sunny afternoon. We took pictures and then headed to our reception at the sea cliff terrace where we had dinner (Italian buffet), cake, and DJ Eric Snow for dancing. It was a great evening. Everything turned out just as we had planned.

If looking for a place to get married in St. Thomas, I highly recommend the Frenchman's Reef. The property is gorgeous. The wedding ceremony location is very private and intimate, and the staff is extremely proficient and professional, making the details come together perfectly.

We had our wedding ceremony on the Morningstar Terrace at the Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort. Jennie was our wedding coordinator and she was fantastic. She made planning a destination wedding easy! The Marriott does require that if you want additional services, you book their contracted vendors (e.g. flowers, photography, videography, musicians) but their vendors are among the best in the business and we were pleased with how everything turned out.
