We had a small beach ceremony at Windansea and were looking for a reception location where we could host a nice wedding dinner. We had 28 guests and didn't need all the hoopla of a normal reception, just a nice place where we could have a toast, have a wonderful meal together and have our wedding cake.

We had planned to use another location for our wedding dinner but three weeks before our wedding that location fell through for various reasons. Now, just weeks from our wedding I started looking again and realized the dining room at La Jolla Shores hotel had meal options that were within our budget and exactly what we were looking for. I sent an email that day and Leslie replied to my email at 7:45 a.m. the next morning - not even 24 hours from when I contacted them with my predicament and questions! Simply amazing!! Leslie was professional and so helpful and within just a week we had made all the plans for our dinner reception.

I cannot say enough good things about the whole experience. This location is very special for our family and Leslie knew about that and made everything flow so smoothly. The food was amazing - the best steak dinner I have had in ages and the fish option was loved by everyone that ordered that selection. Everyone had an awesome view of the ocean and got to watch the sunset. I smile everytime I think about how wonderful of an evening it was. Leslie was even able to have the staff help fix our wedding cake which got damaged on the way over (a car pulled in front of our friends' car who were bringing the cake from the bakery.)

Leslie and the whole team went above and beyond in every way. Excellent service from start to finish with amazing food and views. I am so happy we got to have our wedding reception/dinner here and I look forward to many anniversaries there as well.

Our wedding and reception was fantastic. Our catering manager was very helpful with ideas, and very communicative. We asked to make several substitutions to our buffet menu to accommodate our guests, and it was very easy to do so. Our guests also raved about how yummy the food was! The staff was very helpful during our weekend there for our wedding. You definitely need to hire a day-of-coordinator to help with the details.

I planned a destination wedding, visiting the site only 3 times. We fell in love with the venue and it was a perfect beach wedding for us. However, over the course of a year, our contact changed 3 times. Every time the person changed, something in our 'contract' changed. Small details changed that were not in the contract. Be sure on include EVERY LITTLE THING with these people. The time they tell you that you will be able to set up, what qualifies for a vendor meal and if that includes ALL options or just pasta, chicken, etc. Whether or not they are treated as a guest or have to eat seperate from you reception. They did not honor somethings that had been originally promised to me and 1 week before my wedding dropped the bomb on me that because of that, I would have to pay an extra $500. They also do not have a space to get ready, only give you a room that is comp'd. This would normally be okay but for large parties I suggest getting two rooms - we were way to cramped and it was stressful having so many women in one room. I would recommend it this only because it was beautiful and I had amazing family and friends to help me, had I been relying on the hotel - I would have been screwed. The front desk staff were wonderful and very accomadating.

This vendor was fabulous in all areas. The only thing missed was this: my fiancé and I were put in a room with two beds (for our wedding night!). I requested a new room which we were moved into. However, there were supposed to be strawberries and champagne delivered the wedding night and it was sent to the old room we were no longer in. I had friend who even wanted to make sure we received these items, and we didn't, not even the next morning. It was a little disappointing.

We had our beach wedding and reception at the La Jolla SHores Hotel and it was amazing! Stephanie and the staff were great at answering all my questions during the planning process and were always responsive to my requests. I was disappointed in the Acapulco Room during the reception because the air conditioning broke and did not get fixed in a timely manner so a few guests were hot until the sun went down. Otherwise, the food was awesome and we couldn't have picked a better place for our destination wedding!
