This is a great venue in which to get the most "bang for your buck." Lauren Miller was my event coordinator and she was extremely responsive and assisted with so much. If you book here ask for her. As with all wedding days there were some things that did not work out as planned. The grooms dish was cold, and in hind sight we should have requested another meal for him but didn't. I also provided things for the day of such as a hand held lighter to light the ancestor candle, a Ganesh for the table as people entered and the cake serving set and two of these were never returned to me and one was not returned in the manner it was provided to them. Other than that everything else went pretty well. The other thing to know is the bar closes very early as well as bars in the neighboring locations.

As far as the hotel itself, the groom and I were disappointed in that the bridal suite, though the request was made multiple times, was not serviced after the bride got ready so at the end of the night the room was a disaster. The air unit was also not working and had it not been 4am when it made sounds like a train was going through our room we would have requested a room change. So in that regard I'm not certain I would completely suggest staying there. The mother of the brides air unit was also not working and had maintenance in there a few times. We had around 15rooms booked and the mother of the groom requested to be on the second floor and that was also not accommodated. I'm not sure I would stay there again or recommend that but I would however recommend this venue for a wedding to anyone.

I loved working with Michael DaSilva and the staff at Island Palms Hotel and Marina. From the start everyone was professional, kind, and attentive. Michael was always available to discuss details of my wedding reception. As an out of town bride I required a certain amount of accommodation. Michael and staff had no problem working with me. My guests are still talking about the amazing view, food, and service. I was very fortunate to find the Island Palm Hotel and Marina. I cannot imagine my wedding at any other venue.

Everything about doing the wedding at the Island Palms was amazing! Rachael was the coordinator (we originally started with Martha, but she moved) and she was so helpful! We originally planned on having it in a smaller room, but when the bar would have to be outside and we were concerned, they upgraded us to the medium-sized room at no extra charge with the same food & beverage minimum! Everything went off without a hitch, they really went out of their way to make our wedding special. And it was. Definitely. Prices were also extremely reasonable, and it was nice to have an opportunity in the package to have centerpieces, cake, and alcohol all included!

Working long distance from Iowa to California was made very easy by the staff at the Island Palms Hotel. Both Michael and Rachael were very responsive to our questions and concerns. They were very flexible and helpful in making sure we had a gorgeous looking ceremony site and reception hall.

The food was AMAZING, and the catering staff was very attentive and responsive. We couldn't have asked for a better destination wedding.

We had our rehearsal, wedding, and reception and the Island Palms and we had an amazing time. The wedding was gorgeous, the food was DELICIOUS, and the service we had there was great. Mike was helpful and was willing to help out however he could. He set up everything and made things very easy. Guests thought it was great!

This place is not only beautiful, it is cost effecient. I had about 80 guests and the total with food, ceremony, linens and a bartender came under $8,000. Can't beat that with an excellent staff as well. Just one downfall, if your wedding guests are looking to get together afterwards don't do it in this hotel. Security will harrass you until every guest is out of your room and there is not so much as a snore heard from inside. The wedding was absolutely amazing though and the staff were great as well as the event contact Michael.

Island Palms Hotel and Marina is an absolutely beautiful backdrop for any occasion, but especially for a wedding. They have two gardens and a marina where you can have your special event. However, I had always dreamed of having my wedding on a beach and Martha, the event planner in charge of our wedding, made that happen. Martha was such a great help in planning our event from so far away (we live in Cincinnati, Ohio). She did such a great job and was always very accommodating and responded quickly to my e-mails and calls. The cost of the wedding was pretty reasonable considering all that it included. It was kind of difficult to meet the food and beverage minimum, but the staff was very helpful in trying to help us meet that number (although we still didn't!). Part of the problem was that we did not have as many guests as originally anticipated. The only things that could have gone better were the ceremony music (I think there was a bit of miscommunication as to who was supposed to set up the CD player) and coordination of the reception (my husband and I are vegetarians, which made the order a little more complicated AND the event was running behind because of the issues with the ceremony music). Other than those two things, everything was a dream come true. Thank you Island Palms for making our special day absolutely wonderful! I would recommend this venue highly to anyone for their wedding.

Shelter Island was like the forgotten paradise during the time of my husband's and my wedding.

We were lucky enough to find them at the right time for the right price. Their package deals were excellent. Compared to many of the other venues we shopped, Island Palms included a lot of planning elements that helped save us money and gave us peace of mind.

Our favorite person, Brianna, is no longer there but she certainly was like having a fairy godperson.

Friends and family had such a good time there. Out of towners, especially loved being able to walk along the nautical boardwalk.

Most importantly, we weren't stuck with having to order the chicken meal. We surprised our guests with the steak and salmon combination or a vegetarian alternative. People loved it. We loved not having to make them choose.
