I just can't say enough about how great this venue is, we looked one year prior to our date and we knew right away this was the place for us. We were not dissapointed, the Islander Staff, especially Corie were so attentive to our needs and were ready to provide anything that was needed. Our wedding was small, only 30 people, so we were married on the beach in front of the kissing palm trees and our reception was on the tiki bar patio. Everything was so beautiful! I added bistro lights over the area, so glad I did, it looked amazing! The food was incredible, everyone loved the seviche. Our bartenders were a blast. Everyone took such great care of us and the setting is just perfect. I will cherish every memory from that day. Thank you Islander, we will be back on our anniversary.

We are so happy with how our wedding turned out at the Islander Resort. The staff were very friendly and met with me about four times in person prior to the wedding to discuss all of the details. They were very professional and gave me all the information I needed to plan my destination wedding. I was surprised by how attentive all the staff were at our rehearsal dinner and on our wedding day. They make sure everything is how you want it and they make you feel special. The resort had just been turned into a Guy Harvey Outpost and my Husband loves everything Guy Harvey, so we knew it was the perfect place for us to get married. We had such a great time on our wedding day and all our family and friends did as well. We are thankful the Islander Resort could make our day so special. I would definitely recommend having your wedding at the Islander Resort.

We never knew the beauty that existed behind that landmark sign that we had seen for years. As soon as we drove in, we knew it was the venue for us. They had multiple sites to choose from on the property, but we chose to get married on the sand. It was the perfect spot for us with a beautiful view that was far enough away from the rest of the resort to add privacy to the venue as well. Our reception was in the convention hall, and it was PERFECT! The staff was amazing and provided everything we could possibly need. Diane was very attentive and kept in touch throughout the planning process and anything and everything we could need was taken care of by Corie on the day of. The staff made sure that my husband and I were served first as well as our parents and catered to us throughout the night. We could not have asked for a better night and are thrilled with our choice of venue.

We spent the week ahead of our wedding here, and loved it! That guy Vern at the bar was very personable and remembers who you are like it's easy. We had a one bedroom suite so we could entertain the day of without having to make people sit on the bed.

Our wedding was very relaxed and the informal rehearsal dinner poolside was so fun! Definately try the Cuban sandwich and fried pickles!

The day of was wonderful and if you are ever placed right next door to the "other" bride of the day, don't worry. We saw each other's wedding parties but that was it, no body got in anyone's way.

Corie was wonderful with the details of the reception set up. We only had 30 guests, but we didn't feel overwhelmed in the ground floor ballroom. The bartender was quick and friendly and didn't skimp. The buffet was set up in the entry way, which kept the noise and "show" to a minimum. There was so much good food! Most went back for seconds, some only for the fish which was so beautifully done it was the first thing to run out. We decided to use the resort's cake, which was delicious! A great alternative if you aren't a fan of fondant.

The resort also worked well with my other vendors, helped the band with the beach setup/power source and gave all day for the ceremony set up. There weren't any morning weddings that weekend.

Wow, I don't think there is one bad thing I can say about picking the Islander for our venue location this past weekend! I absolutely LOVED it! We looked at a lot of locations in Islamorada and Key Largo and I think this location is the perfect spot for a Keys wedding! Their new building/museum that they use for the reception is gorgeous! Every guest loved it! We had about 85 guests and every one of them told us how beautiful the place was! Some of the guests even joked about how they were going to buy the place if they won the Power Ball. Diane, who is the catering manager but, the person who sets up and organizes your wedding, is wonderful! Thanks for everything, Diane!

We had the ceremony right at the North beach (luckily the weather cooperated!). They set up the beach with white folding chairs, a bamboo runner, and tiki torches. It was simple but, very pretty. Having everything all at the same location is convenient, especially when you realize you forgot the rings in your room and your maid of honor has to throw off her heels and sprint to the room to retrieve them. Luckily Cory, our day-of coordinator, was right there with a golf cart for transportation! Yup, that happened but, it was hilarious! We then had the cocktail hour outside on the terrace of the building/museum. They had tiki torches lit and the building just offers a gorgeous outside area. The reception was inside which was just gorgeous with all the up lights we had. All of my guests loved how the double doors to the reception were open which led out to the terrace. Beautiful spot!

One thing I definitely need to mention is that the food was delicious and all of the employees working the reception were amazing! All of the guests were well taken care of and everyone mentioned how awesome the employees were. We were also told that one or two employees even drove some guests who were unable to drive after the wedding. Thanks, guys!! We all had such a great night!

Diane (Director of Catering) and Connie (Group Reservation Manger) were amazing to work with. They both went above and beyond to make us have the most wonderful week-end and wedding anyone could ask for. They were both very professional and responsive. When we arrived, we found out there were 3 other weddings being held the same week-end as well as the bonefish fishing tournament. This made me nervous but in the end, they did such a great job, I would have thought we had the only event at the resort that week-end. My ceremony was at The Point and my reception was held on Tarpon Terrace. It was absolutely beautiful and everything we could have imagined. Corie and the wait staff the day of were also great. All my guests commented on how great the food was. I would highly recommend this venue

This made me nervous but in the end, they did such a great job, I would have thought we had the only event at the resort that week-end. My ceremony was at The Point and my reception was held on Tarpon Terrace. It was absolutely beautiful and everything we could have imagined. Corie and the wait staff the day of were also great. All my guests commented on how great the food was. I would highly recommend this venue Read less

Karly and Corie were an amazing team right from the start. We had not been to the resort so we were going off of reviews and the website. Upon getting to Florida, everything was perfect! I did not have one worry at all. They were even so gracious and let us use two hotel rooms to get ready. The ceremony was gorgeous and set up just how we wanted it. The food as well as the servers were perfect! The customer service we received was out of this world. Thank you all for making our day perfect!
