My husband and i had decided to do a wedding on Vanderbilt Beach. After some research of my own i found Laplaya Golf and Resort. We wanted to stay within a certain budget but have an intimate wedding of 30 people. This we got! I worked with Melanie the hotel wedding coordinator. Not sure if that's her exact passion there but she did a fabulous job always keeping things on track and keeping everyone on time. She communicates very well and is very responsive to your needs. We also worked with Gail would sealed the deal,, marrying us on that beautiful Sunday. Gail was also a pleasure to work with and very professional. She was so easy going and made things simple for us with the vowels and legal stuff;-). I can't say enough about the staff involved. We did the brunch venue to make it more simple for our guest. The food was fantastic many of our guest had expressed to me, and the service was on point and curtious. We had some issues with the sun moving on us so we had to move the table umbrellas to keep from getting roasted. The food/outdoor staff immediately responded to this and helped move the tables into shadier areas. The food staff was a lot very polite and helpful. The reception ended around 3:30pm and some of our guest were still enjoying them selves by 3:50,,,and they didn't try to push them out;-). I guess that's a good party! That was the ceremony/reception part of it. We also had 10 rooms booked for our guest. Our guest loved their rooms, and most of them were upgraded for free due to their availability that weekend. So that added some extra enjoyment out of our families Laplaya experience. The views are amazingly breathtaking! My husband and i had a fabulous room and they surprised us with rose peddles on the bed and a bottle of champagne with chocolate covered strawberries. Everyone at this hotel was exceptionally polite and responsive. I highly recommend for your special day. Thank you Laplaya!

Simply an awesome location for our destination wedding. The weekend began with a rehearsal/welcome reception held at the north pool. The BBQ buffet and ice cream sundae bar were perfect. Guests used the pool and hot tub. Our lawn ceremony and cocktail hour needed to be switched at the last moment due to a late afternoon thunderstorm. Betsy was fabulous and made the switch without hesitation. Our guests enjoyed the cocktails and appetizers on the terrace. The sunset ceremony took place on the gulf lawn complete with a double rainbow and spectacular sunset. The ballroom was amazing as we were introduced as was the food and service. The resort took great care of all of our guests as well. We could not have asked for a better venue. Betsy and her staff are top notch and so easy to work with. We recommend LaPlaya enthusiastically and would definitely use this venue again. We can't wait to go back.

We were fans of LaPlaya before we got engaged, so when the time came to look for our venue we didn't bother to look anywhere else.

Before booking them we always received top notch quality services at their beautiful hotel. And that was exactly what we got for our wedding. Melanie Delanie was there with every answer we needed. If I had to do it again I will book LaPlaya in a heartbeat.

Thank you Melanie for everything!

Exceptional!!!! I had the best experience with Laplaya...We were very pleased with EVERYTHING!!! Julie our coordinator was exceptional. I couldnt have made it through the planning and all the extra stress without her. She treated us as though we were her friends/family. She took care of all our needs and went above and beyond to do things that were not even part of her job duties. She truly helped make our experience with Laplaya a memoriable one. We had a beautiful ceremony and recpetion soley due to Julie. I will forever be grateful to Julie for all she did for us. Laplay is a great place to get married the location and ambiance is spectaculer but working with someone like Julie just adds a special touch to it. Its a bit costly but well worth the money. All our guest are still talking about what a beautiful wedding we had. We are very please and already have plans to renew our weding vows there...some day :-)
Thank You Julie Germer.

We interviewed four properties and our daughter chose LaPlaya for the venue of her wedding. We were very happy with her choice! Our guests were impressed with the property in every respect. The high level of service and friendliness of the staff were outstanding. The rooms, food, and intimate luxurious vibe of the property set LaPlaya apart from the Ritz and the Waldorf. We worked with Karen Marchand at LaPlaya and found Karen to be very professional and easy to work with. She worked hard to assist us in planning and made a number of valuable suggestions when we needed her input based on her extensive experience. We would highly recommend LaPlaya.

I just recently had my wedding at La Playa Beach and Golf Resort. Since it was a destination wedding we booked La Playa before we even got a chance to visit. La Playa did not disappoint. Everything was amazing. Julie Germer was our coordinator from La Playa and I can't say enough wonderful things about her. She was amazing to work with throughout the process. Julie made planning a destination wedding so much easier then I could have imagined. She is organized, professional, and always made me feel at ease. I had no doubt that the wedding would run smoothly and it did!

Thank you to all of the wonderful staff at La Playa that made our wedding so memorable. The service is top notch and worth every penny we spent. The food is amazing and our guests raved about their meal. Our friends and family who traveled from all over had a great time at the wedding and a wonderful stay at the resort.

Thanks again La Playa for giving us a day we truly will never forget. We had the wedding of our dreams and La Playa exceeded my very high expectations. We can't wait to go back for our anniversary!

So happy I found this beautiful venue. We had our ceremony on the south lawn near the beach and reception in the Bay view ballroom. Everything was amazing and much more then I had already expected. Julie Germer was our coordinator, she was wonderful to work with and worked very well with our wedding planner and vendors. I would absolutely recommend going to La Playa for your wedding you will not go wrong:)

My husband and I chose a destination wedding to get away, have a stress and hands free wedding and reception, and to create a strong lasting memory. LaPlaya provided this to us and beyond! Our wedding and reception was magical and pure perfection. The staff, location, cleanliness, food, etc could not have been more professional and enjoyable. They have such high standards for perfection and detail. There are only a few life events that truly make a memorable mark. LaPlaya will make your wedding event one that you and your family and friends will never forget. My husband and I honestly cannot put into words how happy and thankful we are with LaPlaya. We will be going back for our one year!

We booked La Playa 6 months out and worked with Julie in the months leading up to our wedding. She was tremendously helpful, and her attention to detail was greatly appreciated. As the date approached we learned that Juile wouldn't be available during our ceremony, however she introduced us to Robert a few weeks in advance of our wedding, and he too was very professional. Both Julie and Robert put us at ease each time we talked because they were very organized, consistently prepared, and genuinely interested in making our event wonderful. They were flexible every step of the way, and they allowed us make changes all the way up to the day of the wedding. In addition, we found the various other staff at La Playa very courteous and helpful throughout the day. They also coordinated efforts with our vendors, which made life easier.

The ceremony took place on the beach, and La Playa had everything set up two hours ahead of time. They also greeted our guests, helped with all issues that arose, and guided the wedding party accordingly to ensure everything went smoothly. That was followed by our lunch reception on the lawn, and that too went off without a hitch. The food was spectacular, and the service was top notch. Finally our package included a night at the resort and the room provided was absolutely breathtaking.

Leading up to the wedding we had heard great reviews firsthand from a few other people who had weddings at La Playa, and we have to say that the resort didn't disappoint. Compared to other local, quality resorts the overall price was competitive, particularly given the intimate, beachside venue. It wasn't cheap, but it wasn't overly expensive either and the resort was negotiable. Overall it was well worth the money.

All in all the people at La Playa treated us like family, and we couldn't have asked for more. It was literally a dream come true, and we would highly recommend it.
