The staff at La Torretta was incredible. Very positive experience. Wedding ceremony/reception was wonderful. Specifically, wanted to acknowledge following for going above and beyond. Patti Culwell for an excellent job of overseeing our event. She kept us organized and provided guidance when necessary. Our event ran so smoothly because of her. Matt Hughes for personally handling our reservations. Very positive feedback from family/friends about their reservation process. Jennifer & Wendy at the spa for a fantastic job on hair/makeup for me and my sister. Both true artists who transformed us beautifully. Debbie, Spa Manager, who graciously stayed after hours so we could utilize the spa for wedding pictures which afforded us interesting/unique backdrops for our photos. Rachid, Norma, Neal and staff for the set up and management of reception. They paid great attention to detail. We appreciated how they had our reception stuff organized afterwards so the day after was very stress free when we picked it up. Chef Christian for the fabulous dinner. We can’t say enough about how the food looked and tasted. Received so many compliments from guests. Our primary goal was to have a dinner not consisting of your typical wedding food that would “wow” our guests. Chef Christian definitely succeeded. Bob Brown and Trish at the golf club who made our pre-wedding golf outing a huge success. Breakfast tacos were delicious and much appreciated by our golfers. La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa truly exceeded our expectations. Our guests stated this was the best wedding they had ever attended. Thank you all for your hard work and dedication and for helping us create great memories.

I originally had my wedding booked at a venue that was not completed in time and had one month to find somewhere else to move the wedding to. Pati and Maryah went the extra distance to find a way to have the ballroom and wedding circle at the last minute. Since we already had everything booked Pati was so nice to create a custom menu to match as close as possible to what we were going to have since we couldn't have an outside cater. When I went to check in they gave me my cottage but when I got there someone was still in the room, but when I went back to the front desk they handled it amazing and ended up giving my both rooms in my cottage to make up for the mistake. Everything was amazing and perfect, La Torretta is a wonderful place to get married and the staff are so nice.

La Torretta Resort provided my bride with the perfect backdrop for her reception. They have several rooms to use for events, but the Versailles Ballroom with the glass windows overlooking the water is really gorgeous! The staff at this resort really make the event smooth and seamless. Working with the event coordinators (different from a wedding coordinator) was such a pleasure and they really made the process easier for my bride. I will definitely recommend this venue to my future brides.

So many spots on this property to chose from! EVERY member of the staff is exceptionally friendly! Some of the best food I've tasted in a while. After the wedding, my husband and I were amazed at the number of guests who told us that we had the best food out of any wedding they've ever attended!

I had my wedding at La Torretta in March and was very happy with the venue. Most of our guest booked a room there as well and everyone was very happy with the quality of the rooms and friendliness of the staff. We were going to have our ceremony at the wedding circle, which overlooks the lake, however the weather made that impossible. We were moved into a gorgeous ballroom that overlooks the wedding circle through a wall of windows for the ceremony. We had our reception at the energy bar which is actually one of the hotels lounge/bars. I got a lot of comments on how warm and inviting the reception area was and everyone loved the food. The staff was spectacular. We had a few issues getting in touch with the banquet coordinator at times on the day of the wedding and for about a week before, but in all fairness, there were at least 4 other wedding going on that weekend so I can understand she was stretched pretty thin, I just felt they should given her an assistant on the weekends they are so booked to make things run a little smoother. Overall I was very happy with La Torretta, its a gorgeous property, Shon (banquet coordinator) was great and the rest of the staff was too, in fact we plan on going back for a weekend in the summer to enjoy all the amenities and the water park we couldn't use while we were there because of the weather.

We had our wedding at LaToretta Lake resort on February 16th, 2014 and the event was great. Everyone loved the venue. We booked the versailles ballroom that overlooked the lake so that we were able to do fireworks over the lake. We worked with the Director of Sales and Catering, Patti Cullwell mostly and she helped us coordinate and plan the event. Patti and her team was great to work with and very responsive on any questions, concerns or requests I had which I really appreciated as a bride. She was available to meet as we needed to discuss all the event details, timeline, etc and made sure everything went smoothly on the day of the wedding. The team worked with my wedding coordinator, decorator, caterer and all other vendors individually to see what they would need. Any requests that we had, they were more than willing to accommodate us to the point they could. I wish I could do this again :) .

Me and my wife had our wedding here just this July of 2012. It's interesting that we kept seeing negative reviews before we chose this place, because we actually scouted out several venues for our wedding, primarily around Conroe, and this was by far the most suitable. Our wedding director Alana is leaving the company, which is unfortunate, because she did a really great job. She wasn't rude at all, took her time with us, showed us everything at La Torretta. We looked at everything in January when the lake was all dried up, but by the time we got married, they fixed up all the decks and the water was restored. It was absolutely beautiful. Everything went exactly to our plans. The food was REALLY good! I can't say one thing really made me displeased with this venue other than our coordinator was no where to be seen. She made everything happen on time, but it would have been nice to see her now and then. Our DJ "Mobile Music" ended up coordinating quite a bit of the wedding just because no one else was around to do it. He was an excellent DJ btw, really went above an beyond. Anyhow, I highly recommend this venue which made for some awesome photos and memories, but I can't recommend any directors or coordinators. Just meet up with them and hope for the best. If you don't like them, try another person.

There were MULTIPLE problems with La Torretta. From the "mishaps" with the contract, to complete miscommunication with the consultant. They didn't even care to ensure the correct honeymoon suite that the strawberries and Champaign were to be delivered. We found the next day that the items were delivered to another room. The communication was horrible and it takes a lot of time to iron out misunderstandings. My bridesmaids and I had to figure out where to sleep the night before the wedding because the bridal suite was (somehow) not booked EVEN when I had to confirmation and payment card IN HAND—needless to say this happened with my wedding coordinators room the night of the wedding after she was exhausted and just wanted to get some rest. She had to drive all the way back home because there was “no room booked” despite confirmation numbers emailed to us. All in all, we made it through but I wouldn’t recommend. I actually referred a friend there and they ended up canceling the contract because they were having the same contract issues. A co-worker has a golf club membership there and DID warn me of these things prior to, but I didn’t listen. Take my advice, if you want your day (and post-wedding days) to be smooth sailing, KEEP SERACHING and please do not book here!!

I just had my wedding on Dec. 20, 2013 & I'm not quite sure where to even begin with my experience with La Torretta. From day one the lack of response should have been a red flag, but when we saw the hotel we really liked it & what it had to offer. They didn't have our date but told us if we had it on Friday we could get great deals on their packages. Little did we know these great deals were watered down & not at all what they first made it seem like. Everything they said in the beginning was nothing at all what we got. I was having to fight with everything because they would say one thing but when it came down to it you were going to be the one paying extra for it. We wanted an outside ceremony & they made it seem like no big deal, but never once said it was so dark at night you would have to pay extra for lighting just to see. They also said if it needs to be moved inside we can "pipe the room to make it look nicer", but failed to mention they don't do piping & you will pay someone else $3,000 for it. I was very disappointed. As far as the wedding day went so many things went wrong, there was never any help not even from the wedding coordinator, the lack of interest in our wedding was made very clear, when frustrations were voiced the coordinator was very rude. There was nowhere to take pictures & it was too windy outside, everywhere else was off limits our photographer even said she's never seen such a poorly run facility, the food came out wrong & our guests didn't get a chance to finish a meal if they got up for a drink b/c it was taken away, our honeymoon suite smelt so bad we needed another room, valet was nowhere to be found guests had to get their own keys & cars, most amenities were closed down, no signs or help telling guests where the wedding was in the building, and to top it off our strawberries & champagne showed up at 9am the next day. The list goes on and on. This facility is poorly run, very unprofessional & I would never recommend it to anyone.

La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa responded with the following comments:

Please accept our sincerest apologies for your experience at the Resort. While an apology will regrettably not alter the outcome of your experience on this occasion, we do extend it with all sincerity.
We understand the importance of such a big day and always strive to make this as seamless and stress free as possible. I am disappointed to hear we collectively fell short in more than one area. I would like to address a few points you mentioned in your review:

•We pride ourselves on being transparent from the beginning in order to ensure all runs seamlessly during the planning stage and for this reason. There are numerous conversations that occur between the initial conversation/site visit and the final agreement and it is for this reason we are so detailed in outlining the package inclusions, in the written agreement, as we don’t want there to be any surprises. If you recall specific vendors were removed (as requested) in order to bring the pricing down.

•We believe much confusion stemmed from understanding the difference between the Resorts Catering Manager vs a Personal Wedding Coordinator. The Catering Manager coordinates all details on the Resort’s end however, their role is much different than a Personal Wedding Coordinator. A wedding coordinator is responsible for all the finer details of your event timeline, hair/make-up, photography etc, and is there to cater to you and your family to ensure you and your family are moving through the big day seamlessly and it is for this reason we stress to all our brides to work with a professional wedding coordinator or hire a day of coordinator.

Regardless of the miscommunication or difference of opinion, we take responsibility for the shortcomings you experienced. Although feedback from previous and current brides is overwhelmingly positive, we appreciate your feedback as this provides us with insight and tools to ensure this does not happen again!
