I recently got married at Marbella Country club; and from the day I walked in to check the venue, until the last email saying I left a few items there, it has been a pleasure working with these women.

Jennifer and Elizabeth sure do know what they are doing, they helped me change and rearrange my proposal up until 3 days before. My wedding day was everything I envisioned it to be, from the delicious food (halibut, filet mignon, vegetarian, and they even made a raw veggie tower for my vegan guests). I also just learned that the waitstaff brought a vegan plate out for the few vegan guests during cocktail hour; I didn't even arrange that, talk about going above and beyond!!!!!

I got married on the green grass with their white folding garden chairs; they allowed me to use their arch that my florist adding fabric and flowers too.

The dinner area was held outside on their patio; two doors remained opened for the night to end up indoors dancing since they do have a 10pm noise ordinance. The flow went great (which was my biggest stress and concern), we ate and danced a bit outside; right at 10 we called all the guests in for cake cutting; that lead right into the boquet toss and dancing!

I do recommend this venue to anyone looking for an outdoor space, the entire process of planning was simple and non stressful thanks for Jennifer and Elizabeth.

Michael and I had our ceremony and reception at Marbella Country Club on May 31st. We chose it because of the location and the beautiful backdrop of the golf course, waterfalls and rolling hills. Jennifer and Elizabeth were the best to work with and always kept us on schedule. We enjoyed every step of the way in our planning process. Elizabeth is very sweet and very good at what she does! She was accommodating with any changes we had. From the menu tasting to the rehearsal to the wedding day, everything went without a hitch. Everyone raved about the food. The food was amazing! Thanks Elizabeth and Jennifer for making our "happily ever after" the perfect day!

We had our wedding reception held at Marbella. Elizabeth was so sweet and accomodating to our needs throughout the whole entire process. She walked through our meetings and tasting, and answered all our questions, constantly assuring me that everything was in order, and worked well w/ my outside coordinator. She was always so professional and organized with everything. The food at our tasting was amazing, and even better at the day of our wedding. Even a month afterwards, people were still telling me that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding reception. I went with fish as one of the items, and even people who never eat seafood ate up all the fish because it was THAT good. Our cake through Marbella was also BEAUTIFUL & taste so good! We had a private bridal room with refreshments where my husband and I would go to take a breather. But the day went by so smooth and quick, we were always busy with our guests that we didn't spent too much time in the bridal room, but it was always there if we needed. Marbella was so worth every penny, I'm surprised a lot of people never heard of it. The venue was beautiful, and the staff were all great. Elizabeth had just started working there in the midding of our wedding planning, after we signed contract with them...and it felt like she had been there for years, she did such an excellent job helping us and made the whole process so easy, all we had to do was just enjoy ourselves on the big day. Thank you Liz and Marbella staff for making our wedding reception the best day ever!

Marbella Country Club was a fantastic venue for our daughter's wedding!

From the first meeting with Jennifer & Elizabeth the professional care shown to us was beyond words. They both have positive attitudes and offered creative ideas and suggestions that added so much warmth, charm & fun to the day. They were organized, efficient & responded quickly to phone calls & email. They were also fun & easy to work with.

The flow from the outdoor wedding to the cocktail hour, then to dinner on the outdoor patio and indoors for dancing & dessert was perfect. There was more than enough space for each part of the evening.

Marbella's vendor list was extensive. Each vendor we used was also easy to work with and did an excellent job understanding what we envisioned.

The dinner service was extraordinary! Each table was served at the same time so no guest was sitting without food. The food was beautifully presented & delicious. Everything we talked about at our onsite tasting happened!!

One of the joys for me as mother of the bride was being able to be at Marbella most of the day with my daughter & the bridesmaids and getting to watch the event come to life with absolutely no concern or worry on my part. Everything was perfect thanks to Jennifer & Elizabeth, the excellent support staff at Marbella and the vendors.

It was absolutely clear to us that everyone's goal was for us to have the wedding our daughter & her husband envisioned and for us to relax & enjoy ourselves as much as our guests did. That is exactly what happened!!

Our whole experience with Marbella Country Club was exceptional and the wedding was magical!!

Marbella Country Club is a beautiful place to have a wedding. I relocated to the Bay area shortly after we got engaged and had to do all my wedding planning from the Bay area. We wanted an outdoor ceremony and reception and I looked all over the place. Some places were way over our budget and some were just too plain. Since we lived far, we couldn't visit all these venues every weekend, so we had to arrange one weekend to see all the venues. We knew we were in love with Marbella at our first visit. Their wedding package totally fit within our budget and we didn't have to pay any extra upgrade fee to get everything we wanted, which we would have at other venues.

The coordinators at Marbella was awesome and very helpful throughout our wedding planning. Leslye Hansen was the coordinator we worked the most during the latter half of our wedding planning. Leslye was very professional and friendly! She was always quick to respond back to all my emails and just awesome in everything she did. She made me felt at ease and calm, especially planning the wedding from afar. I would totally recommend her as a wedding coordinator.

Overall, our wedding at the Marbella Country was beautiful and romantic. It was exactly everything I had imagine it would be for an outdoor wedding. The staff were very professional with all of our guests and Leslye help make our wedding run smoothly. I would highly recommend Marbella Country Club to anyone who wants a beautiful outdoor wedding!

On July 20th our daughter was married at Marbella. It was a beautiful affair from beginning to end. The location was breathtaking, the food and service were unbelievable. However the person who made all this possible was their wedding coordinator, Leslye Hansen. Her professionalism and attention to detail made the entire experience a pleasure. Her suggestions and knowledge were tremendously helpful to us and our daughter. I would certainly recommend both Marbella and Leslye.

I had my wedding here at this beautiful country club and it was simply amazing! Leslye and Tera helped us every step of the way including food tasting, dinner rehearsal, lights, and decorations in making this wedding perfect. We didn't have an official wedding planner and planned most of the wedding details ourselves but Leslye was able to provide her wedding coordination insight in making our wedding impeccable. I would HIGHLY recommend the coordination services provided by Marbella so that your day is flawless.

I would like to comment on the professionalism by the entire team at Marbella which is second to none. The team was able to work with my schedule in meeting with me after business hours, respond to my countless emails promptly, and was gladly able to accept all my phone calls to answer my questions.

Absolutely wonderful wedding reception and ceremony!! I had THE perfect wedding day with no complaints. Leslye was so flexible and accommodating. The staff is so excited for you and makes you feel very special. My coordinator actually cried when she saw me in my wedding gown! Upon seeing the site for the first time I thought no way we could afford it on my tight budget; however, the price was shockingly low. It's a great value for the amount of detail and work they put into your day. And they include a lot into the pricing and have great flexibility. I LOVED this country club, its beautiful and so worth every penny.

Our wedding planner, Kim, found this hidden gem! This venue is absolutely GORGEOUS!!
The coordinators there, Tera and Leslie are truly amazing. They are super responsive, VERY professional and take all the time in the world with you. We were able to customize their packages to fit our budget and they have a great relationship with our wedding planner.
We were able to view the venue whenever we liked to show our parents throughout the planning process.
They had my bridal suite ready for us with champagne, sandwiches, fruit, waters, iced tea and decorations to make me feel special.
They had a groomsman suite ready as well with buckets of beer, sandwich platters and snacks for the guys!
We got married on a Saturday and though the whole club is closed off for our special day, there were golfers allowed on the golf course. Not crowded at all though and didn't affect anything, nor did we really notice them.
Their prices are amazing as well for how beautiful this country club is.

There are no words to describe how romantic and heavenly my wedding was. We just got married on September 16th, 2012 at this breath taking venue. Tera was my main contact through out the time. only God knows how much i bugged her with million of emails every day, and she replied to every single of them with such a cool and soothing manner. She made my life easier in one of the most stressful times of my wedding. I have no wedding planner beside myself. She accommodate us for our traditional Persian wedding. Leslye is another lady who i had the chance to work with as we got closer to my wedding date. she is another wonderful individual who made everything more beautiful than I expected. Persians in general have such high standards when it comes to wedding celebration and Marbella was able to meet every single of our expectations. The food was amazing. even better than tasting day. The appetizers were served non-stop and there was no one complaining about the quality or amount of it. The staff were super professional and friendly on the day with all of our guests. if i had the chance to have a second wedding, I would not change a bit of it. Thanks to Tera Case and Leslye Hansen for making my dream wedding come true.

Marbella seemed like the perfect choice from the start. The venue was absolutely gorgeous and the packages they had to choose from were extremely reasonably priced. Tera, Leslye, Ray, and staff all bent over backwards to make sure that the day went perfectly. There was no detail too small and I have received many compliments on the service, the food, and the venue in general. I would highly recommend Marbella Country Club to everyone!

Back in December 2011 when my daughter got engaged and told me she wanted an outdoor wedding in July, I wondered what kind of event we could pull off in six months? Both she and I work full time and didn't feel we had the luxury of time-intensive do-it-yourself projects. We wanted a site close to home (South Orange County) and an outdoor setting for both the ceremony and the reception that would wow our 200 guests. For us, beautiful Marbella County Club offered everything we dreamed of and more. This country club is within an exclusive gated community, but the facilities can be rented to the public. The grounds and architecture are picturesque and meticulously manicured (think wedding photographer's dream). The clubhouse and terraces are beautiful and impressive. But beauty aside, what struck us the most was the professionalism of the staff, Tera Case and Leslye Hansen. These two women are so knowledgeable, experienced and available anytime we had a question. Leslye doubled as the catering coordinator and wedding coordinator. She earned our trust early on by taking such good care of us. She "held my hand" via email and in person during the entire planning process. What a gem! She's so organized! Leslye suggested many of my vendors--florist, videographer, lighting company, harpist--and they were all were terrific. It was almost too easy. In fact, there was a time that I stressed that I wasn't doing enough; I started to worry that I was missing stuff or that the wedding would be too plain and not have enough detail. Leslye gave me the best advice ever--she said "Marbella is beautiful enough. You don't need to add to it." And she was so right! Why gild the lily? She really kept me from unnecessary spending. We felt Marbella's gold wedding package was generous and inclusive. Complimentary valet parking, beautiful Chivari chairs and linen, wedding cake, delicious hand-passed hors d'oeuvres, amazing dinner menu, gourmet coffee bar, chocolate covered strawberry station, soft bar and dance floor--all included! In final review, we felt we got great value. In comparison, other sites were more expensive, more work and not as lovely. Our guests were completely wowed, the mother of the bride danced all night without a care in the world, but most importantly, the bride and groom were absolutely thrilled with their very special celebration.

Marbella Country Club is a beautiful venue with a Tuscan feel in South Orange County, CA. I am a Wedding Planner/Coordinator and loved the relationships that were built during the planning process. Tera Case is a delight to work with! She does all the initial contact work and helps you chose which package suits your needs best. Customizing your package is not a problem. As soon as your contract is set, Leslye Hanson, Catering Coordinator steps in to execute all the final details. Leslye is extremely organized and efficient in all that she does, even with our many changes she never let her feathers get ruffled :) Very professional, friendly, quick to return phone calls and emails, it was a true joy to work with these ladies. A standout on the wait staff was Bryn-great to talk to while we both were setting the reception area up, friendly to guests and a hard worker. I was very satisfied with all the staff-Marbella has done an excellent job in hiring and training.

Many guests commented on how delicious the appetizers were-Artichoke bottom stuffed with brie & asparagus, Teri Beef Skewers & and my personal favorite Coconut Shrimp w/raspberry chipotle. Our duet dinner of roasted chicken w/cream sauce & beef medallians w/pinot noir demi glaze, garlic mashed potatoes & vegetable medley far exceeded the standard "wedding meal". The chicken was moist and tender and the beef was cooked to perfection. Great presentation, very nice balance of flavors. The guest seated at my table had multiple food allergies and was quite happy with her vegetarian meal.

We used two vendors from their Preferred Vendors List. Two Spoons Productions for videography and The Cupcake Store for the wedding cake.
Simone & Jono, owners of TSP did a splendid job of being everywhere at once and yet were very unobtrusive. I can't wait to see the finished product! And I would have to say that the wedding cake was the BEST I've ever eaten. Moist, flavorful, delicious! We are so glad that we (the MOB & I) attended their Bridal Show in March and were able to meet so many vendors and taste several of the bakery's cakes as well as enjoy Marbella's great food.

As mentioned in an earlier review, there is very limited cell phone coverage while on the grounds. They do have a landline available if you need to reach someone that isn't on the grounds. The other issue mentioned previously is that the B&G are not allowed to go out onto the golf course for photos except the area around the ceremony lawn. I'm hoping our photographer was able to catch some of the outdoor beauty even though there are many areas on the course that would have made for beautiful backdrops-especially both waterfalls. Carts also were not stopped during the wedding ceremony and three passed by-a slight distraction. It would be nice if they had a way to reroute during a ceremony. A few members also entered the secondary locker room/bridal suite during the Brides prep time even though there was a sign posted on the door that it was closed for a private event. Some rudeness was displayed, I'd like to hope that this doesn't happen on a regular basis.

Overall, I would highly recommend booking Marbella Country Club for your wedding. Beautiful quiet location, freeway close, delicious food, great staff, everything you want for your special day!

Marbella Country Club was not only a beautiful place to get married and have your reception, but the event coordinator, Leslye, was so professional and nice to work with.

A HUGE thank you to Leslye the catering coordinator and to Ray who arranged the layout...incredible job!

We picked Marbella back in December of 2010 as it was only venue in the area that could hold over 200 people. In the 11 months we had to plan, Leslye helped us nail down every detail so the reception wouldn't have any glitches.

They have great contacts for local vendors for various services to include cocktail hour music, ice sculptures, wedding cake...you name it!

They provided an absolutely wonderful menu...and we heard SO MANY complements from our guests that the food was terrific...even from some of our tough to please guests! They provided wonderful options for beef, chicken, fish, and even vegetarian options. With a reception that had over 200 people with guests and vendors, the buffet style worked out perfectly as plating that many people would have taken much longer.

In the week preceeding the wedding, the forecast was calling for rain and very cool temperatures for the area (in the upper 50s). We had originally planned to have all of our guests outside on the patio overlooking the beautiful golf course, but we quickly had to create an "indoor" plan that could accomodate all the guests. Leslye and Ray did an amazing job with the floor plan turning our event from an outdoor reception to an indoor event the days preceeding the reception. They had great subvendors who provided tenting and heaters for outside.

We had full access to the club...from the dressing rooms for guests to freshen up as well as a room downstairs that was used as an "activity" room for our young children guests (we had hired a babysitter). The activity room and babysitter was a great idea which allowed our adult/parent guests a few minutes to spend upstairs with the wedding party.

Valet parking was provided, and proved to be very useful for all the local guests.

All in all, my wife and I were absolutely pleased with all the work Marbella had done to make our reception go flawlessly. We would recommend them highly for anyone considering Marbella as a venue for the reception.

First and foremost, I would like to thank both Tera and Leslye for their hard work to make everything perfect for our wedding day. I believe they are a valuable asset to this venue and made for a very smooth running and enjoyable event.

I would like to say that we had chosen to get married about 6 months after the proposal, which seems to be shorter than most. It was very frustrating to try and find a venue. We visited at least a dozen facilities, probably more, looking for everything that we wanted. We found it at Marbella Country Club.

My wife and I were very impressed the first time that we met Tera, as there was no pressure at any time. We both got the feeling that she just wanted to help us have the best day that we could. Many other facilities have you leaving feeling pressured or that if you don't spend a certain amount of money they don't have time for you. Tera went out of her way to custom tailor a package for us that included everything we wanted and left out the features that we didn't.

On the day of the wedding, everything went amazingly smooth. All of the tables and centerpieces were properly set up. The entire event was kept on schedule and my wife and I had a perfect day to remember.

Overall, I would highly recommend Tera and the Marbella Country Club for the beautiful venue and impeccable service.

Marbella was the first venue we looked at. We loved the venue, but were hoping for something a little closer to home (Pasadena). After visiting several other venues, we realized that Marbella is quite a gem and provides great value.

Tera is the new wedding coordinator and came on board at Marbella at the beginning of the year. She is extremely organized and responds to emails/phone calls very quickly. I'm pretty much an A-type personality, so the responsiveness of the coordinator was extremely important to me. Tera is on the ball and a sharp cookie!

Once you book with Marbella, the Catering Coordinator, Leslye, pretty much becomes your point of contact, although both ladies are in constant communication and if you can't reach one lady, the other can help and answer questions right away. Leslye is also very organized and quick to respond to questions. Working with these two ladies just made the whole experience a pleasure. We did our final walk-through meeting with Leslye and she was on top of all the tiny details and completely put me at ease.

The ceremony space outside is gorgeous. The only problem is that the 19th hole of the golf course is right behind the space. During our ceremony, a cart of 2 men and woman pulled up and they obviously did not see us, so they were joking around and being loud. After a minute or so, the woman felt all the daggers being thrown at her and looked over and saw us, then told the guys to shut up. I wish that Marbella would assign a staff member to the golf cart path during the ceremony to make sure that the golfers are respectful.

Marbella has two spaces available for the reception: the main dining room with doors that open out to seating on a large outdoor deck; and the second space is a large courtyard behind the ceremony space. We chose the courtyard space for our guest count of 60 people. It's a great space for a party of 40-80 people. We had our lighting company do bistro string lights with red paper lanterns and the space looked great!

The food was good, but not outstanding. For a banquet event though, it's pretty good. The packages are very fairly priced and I felt that we got a great value for our money. They were very flexible in making changes to the packages to adjust to our needs.

All in, we had an amazing wedding and we were extremely pleased with Marbella. They did a great job and all of our guests had a fantastic time.

The food was good, but not outstanding. For a banquet event though, it's pretty good. The packages are very fairly priced and I felt that we got a great value for our money. They were very flexible in making changes to the packages to adjust to our needs.

All in, we had an amazing wedding and we were extremely pleased with Marbella. They did a great job and all of our guests had a fantastic time. Read less

My daughter’s wedding was in July of this past year at Marbella Country Club. First I have to say that it was the most magical day ever. Everything was absolutely perfect!

We looked at several venues, but Marbella seemed to have everything that we were looking for at a pretty reasonable price. Marbella provides a very beautiful, elegant setting. One of the nice things about having the ceremony and reception at Marbella is that it is secluded and there were no distractions at all. Marbella only holds one wedding for the day/evening, so basically it is your place for the entire experience. The staff is fantastic. The event coordinator, Leslye Hansen, was absolutely amazing! She was a pleasure to work with. She made the entire experience so much easier for us. We were able to enjoy the entire process and never had any worries about anything. Leslye thought of everything and had some wonderful ideas (all of which we implemented), without adding much to our budget. The things she suggested made such a big difference in how things looked and flowed. We used all of our own vendors (photographer, DJ, florist) and Leslye did a fantastic job of coordinating with everyone so that everything went smooth.

We utilized three areas at Marbella … the lawn for the ceremony (beautiful green setting with waterfall in the background), the cocktail reception area and the terrace for the sit-down dinner. Everything went extremely smooth due to the extremely competent staff. At the cocktail reception, the bar was open, the staff passed signature cocktails and appetizers were plentiful. The food at the reception was delicious and the servers were pleasant.

We are so happy that we found Marbella and highly recommend it to everyone. We had so many people telling us that it was the most beautiful and fun wedding they had ever attended. Thank you Marbella and Leslye Hansen!!!

When we were looking for wedding and reception venues, we had the hardest time finding a place that was a perfect fit for us. We had so many different criteria - close to freeway access, but no view of roads - great views at the ceremony site and not a closed in reception location - friendly staff and newer decor. After touring many locations, we found Marbella Country Club. What a Gem! We felt so lucky that we had finally found the perfect fit for our wants and needs.

So...we began the planning process. When we told our family and friends about our location, everybody was so excited for us. We began developing a great connection with the staff - Sales and Coordination (I know that they have an entirely new staff from a previous review). The ladies were amazing...so kind, patient and knowledgable. They made everything so easy. It almost seemed to good to be true. I was waiting for the other shoe to drop and have something dramatic happen to put a damper on our Wedding Day.

The day before the wedding everything with me and my bridesmaids was chaotic, maincures, pedicures, picking people up from the airport - AH! It was a mad rush to get to the rehearsal. The moment we arrived at Marbella, Kari was there to greet us with a calming smile. We had to unload all of our "stuff" from the car and every manager in the office came out to help us - it was great to know that everybody was there for us. When the wedding party arrived, Kari guided us through our rehearsal. She was patient with all of our questions and rowdy groomsmen. She went through the rehearsal with us so many times, until we felt comfortable. My fiance (now husband) and I left that day with a sense of calm about our wedding day.

When we showed up on THE DAY - everything was set up, favors on the tables, special gifts for guests, the placecards - EVERYTHING was done and so beautiful. I was so happy and knew that there would be no dreaded drama. The day was perfect and everything I wanted it to be - I did a lot of work myself, but owe a lot to all of my vendors, especially the Coordination staff at Marbella. I can't say enough about them.

Not only was the comfortabibility with the staff great, but I am still getting compliments from friends and family all of these months after our wedding - commenting from food to service, views, location, dancing, DJ...everything. It makes me feel so happy to know that my wedding was one that was remembered by everybody.

We had 6 short months to plan my daughter's reception, and Leslye and Tera came through for us in a huge way. To begin, my daughter and I drove up to Marbella and the breathtaking views are the first thing you notice. We were greeted at the entrance by the receptionist and very shortly afterward we met with Tera. We then received a tour of the facilities and having researched the costs beforehand, we knew we had found the place. We continued to stay in communication with Leslye and Tera until the big day. The 1-2 weeks before were a bit hectic with working on the final floorplan and just fine tuning all the last minute details. The actual reception was perfect, with everything finally coming together. Appetizers - incredible, and dinner was delicious. So sum up our experience with Marbella: Surprisingly great value for all that you get in this beautiful setting. Wedding cake, chocolate fountain, coffee/beverage bar and cocktail hour are included in the package along with fantastic appetizers and meal. Please check out Marbella before you make the final decision of where to have your reception.

What a beautiful place! I found the perfect place for my reception. The grounds are stunning for pictures and very spacious for guest to wonder around. The ladies who helped us figure out all the details were very nice and helpful. We had a million questions and they were responsive and polite. The food is amazing and the packages are very affordable (especially for Orange County!). I will advise to have your photography visit the site prior to the wedding day. There are certain spots that are off limits, knowing this before hand is key!

I fell in love with Marbella the instant I drove up to the Clubhouse and looked at the grounds and the Clubhouse. Everything was beautiful. The interior was also recently updated in October 2009 in lovely earth tones. We were given everything we were promised. The Clubhouse was supposed to be ours exclusively, and it was. From the lobby, to the outdoor balconies w/ fireplaces to the guest lounge. Our Guests were able to relax and enjoy the facilities. We were able to have music playing outside (our sound system) as well as have music indoor in the lounge (their music, streamed in on speakers, you have a choice of what kind of music is played). The Coordinator was strict, but got things done. The Wedding party rehearsed shortly before the ceremony. Our photographs turned out beautiful. The architecture and the grounds made it feel like we were in a European paradise. We were informed beforehand that some areas of the golf course would be unavailable for photos, but we were able to get to some pretty photogenic areas, despite the restrictions. My husband and I were left feeling everything was under control and we were calm on our Wedding Day. The food was delicious, our guests emptied their plates and thoroughly enjoyed the h'ordeuvres as well. We chose a package where wine was served throughout dinner and there were plenty of servers around to make sure our glasses were always full. I also found it very nice that during our ceremony the Catering Manager made sure to stop golf cart traffic from going behind our ceremony.

I only had two concerns about my experience: 1) Once you enter the Clubhouse it is a Cell phone dead zone, which if this had been disclosed before the day of the wedding probably would not have been a problem, but the failure to disclose this little tid bit of information was frustrating. 2) The Coordinator was not the Coordinator I originally booked with and as such we did not have the trustworthy relationship I was looking for. She was very stern (which was fine) and rude to some of my family members (which was not fine.) I instructed her to go through a specific person in my wedding party if she had any communications/concerns about anything during the day. Well she disregarded this instruction and some of my family, including a older frail guest were confronted about proper dress code and the fact that if they were not in proper dress code they would need to leave. Luckily the situation was handled, but I felt like it was handled in very poor form.

The venue is absolutely beautiful! The food was exceptional, the atmosphere could not have been more perfect and we were completely satisfied with the way everything looked the day of our wedding. Our only complaint would be the day-of coordination, we should have hired an outside day-of coordinator. When we arrived, my mother in law had to finish the ceremony arch, and other misc. things that the coordinator told her "she just didn't have time to get to". There were also a few other incidents during the night that I felt were unnecessary and I felt like she was extremely overwhelmed and unorganized that day. Up until the wedding day, she was great and seemed on top of everything, I'm not sure if it was just the size of our wedding and bridal party or what the issue was. After the wedding, a new coordinator came on named Don that was absolutely great! He made us feel at ease by taking care of all of the decorations and gifts/cards and made sure we knew were everything was and that we could in fact come back the next day to pick up everything (when we were told earlier in the day we couldn't all of a sudden). He was extremely professional! I would definitely recommend having your wedding here, just put your mind at ease and hire a day-of coordinator to take care of the wedding day details!

My husband and I got married at this venue last year. It was nothing like we were promised. During our initial and follow-up meetings with their representative, we were told I (the bride) would have a private changing and waiting area, the club would be closed during our wedding, and we could take photographs on their beautiful golf course (we were also shown numerous photographs of couples on the golf course). We were even told we could have our dog in our ceremony if we had wanted. On the day of the wedding, I had to option of waiting in their women's locker room or the public bathroom. The club was NOT closed the day of our wedding as had been relayed to us by their representative and women were showering in the locker room causing the floors to be wet. Thus, I was stuck in the public bathroom were all of my guests had access to before the wedding. During our ceremony, a groundskeeper drove behind us in his golf cart and parked, watching our entire ceremony and he is present in almost all of our ceremony photographs. While were were taking our photographs, we were told we could not go on the golf course. When my dad told the manager on duty that I had been told we could use the golf course, the manager called me a liar. We overheard the conversation and called the manager out. The manager proceeded to back track and change is story and eventually admitted he was aware that the representative we dealt with was "known to make promises she knew she couldn't keep." Needless to say, we were very angry and disappointed. Marbella refunded us our ceremony fee because the groundskeeper was in our ceremony, but offered little else.
I highly recommend brides and grooms to look elsewhere for their weddings. Marbella is an extremely unreliable and unprofessional organization.
