My husband and I had our reception at the Sonesta Coconut Grove Miami. It was the best decision my husband and I could've made for our wedding. The lobby is beautiful and modern; it makes a lasting impression when you (and your guests) first walk in. Now, move your way up to the 8th floor where there's the Panorama Restaurant, well-kept bathrooms, the Grove View Terrace, and the ballrooms. One thing I loved about this venue is that there is only one event going on at a time. With that being said, the 8th floor is really for you and your guests to enjoy.

We had planned for our cocktail hour to be outdoors at the Grove View Terrace. It's a large terrace with gorgeous views of the bay and the city. My cocktail hour, however, was moved to the Grove Ballroom because of very windy/cold weather. The Grove Ballroom was with no disappointment, though. It was very classy and was large enough to accommodate all of my guests. The Biscayne room is where we had dinner and partied. Everything was beautiful. You could see the city and bay and as a bonus, there's outdoor patio space. Since I wanted to do everything I can to get optimal dance time, I asked Katie to have the salads already set on the table when the guests enter the room. We moved through out first dances and speeches, and dinner was served. We had 2 options. Chicken, red skinned mashed potatoes, and string beans, or salmon with jasmine rice, and asparagus. Honestly, they were way better than I was expecting hotel food to taste like. During dinner, instead of having the champagne toasts, we had white and red wine passed out. After dinner, the DJ got everyone on the dance floor and everyone had the time of their lives. I never saw a line at the bar and the liquor included in our package worked well for our guests. Everyone still complements us on how amazing things were. There was nothing we would have changed at all and I wish I could go back to that night!

PS, ask for Katie Nelson!

Erin D'Elia and the staff at the Sonesta Hotel were absolutely AMAZING!!! Erin is the event coordinator at the hotel and I thought her job was limited to simply getting my husband and I sold on the hotel. Not at all!!! I had a wedding planner who was so terrible and unreliable, Erin stepped in and helped me every step of the way up until my wedding day. From getting price quotes, to recommending a great hair stylist, to decoration suggestions, she was absolutely PHENOMENAL!!!!
The chef at the hotel was very open to trying out new things, so when my husband and I told him we were looking for a meal to serve our guests that was custom to Trinidad, he immediately went to work. Our guests LOVED the appetizers and the main course!!! Overall I couldn't have done it without the help of Erin and the staff at the Sonesta Hotel. She needs a raise!

I stayed here on my wedding night and had my farewell brunch in the beautiful Bay Room. This place was FANTASTIC! I would recommend them for any event, from bridal shower to the wedding itself to farewell brunch. Eliana and Francy were wonderful to work with and took care of every little detail. For the farewell brunch, the room was beautiful, the food was displayed wonderfully, the service was impecable, and all of the food tasted awesome. Sonesta staff really went above and beyond and we could not have been happier. On our wedding night, they surprised us with champagne and strawberries in our room. The price was quite reasonable and the quality was impressive. I hope I can have another event here sometime.

A+ Service: I worked with Francy Silva and it was a true pleasure. She has such a passion for her job it is unbelievable… you hardly see people that are so enthusiastic. She saved my wedding and everything worked out perfectly because of her… The entire Sonesta staff was extremely nice to my family and friends, very attentive. Food: I am still hearing people RAVE about the food. The Hors d’ouvres were to die for, the dinner was also superb. In my house, food is extremely important and every bite was delicious. Overall, I am taking amazing memories with me from the Sonesta, I would definitely recommend it to anybody. I am so pleased with everything, I don’t get tired of saying it!

Well I just fell in love with this location as I pulled up to the Hotel. The views are breath taking. Every single person I dealt with was professional and extremely nice. The day of my wedding was amazing thanks to the great location, staff and food. The food was AMAZING. We choose a mash potato station during our cocktail hour that was a hit with my guest. The dinner and the chocolate fountain was unbelievable. My guest were all saying how full they were and how well made and prepared everything was made. The Sonesta was worth every single penny....I would defiantly use them again for any future events.

We held our ceremony & reception at the Sonesta and it was perfect. I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out. My ceremony was outside on the terrace, which was beautiful. And my cocktail hour and reception were both inside (different rooms) and the rooms looked amazing. The service was great& the food was delicious (many of my guests were still telling me days after the wedding how good the food was). And Katie, my main contact person at the Sonesta, was extremely accommodating & helpful & friendly. I highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for the perfect outdoor ceremony with a small, intimate indoor reception.

We booked this hotel for the entire wedding party, including ourselves, as well as our guests. The ease of booking and changing reservations was great. The first night there the hotel restaraunt was phenominal. After that night, not so much. The rooms were goregous and had great views. However, we had asked to all be kept together, and were spaced out over 12 floors. The night reception was not at all good. Very rude, and uncaring.

***DO NOT BOOK WEDDING BLOCK WITH THIS HOTEL*** I tried for months to communicate with the sales department to book a block for my wedding and it was the most frustrating and timely experience I’ve ever dealt with. No return calls or emails, having to go up the chain of command and even that didn’t help. Once I did get to booking the block, they sent me the wrong link! And they did the same thing to a friend of mine who ultimately ended up canceling their block as well! They took NO responsibility for anything they did wrong. I tried for 3 days to contact SIX DIFFERENT PEOPLE to cancel my block, including the general manager. Once I did get in touch with someone, they said they had already canceled everything and what else did I want from them! Nobody even contacted me to tell me they received my calls and emails! HANDS DOWN THE MOST UNPROFESSIONAL SALES DEPARTMENT EVER. I am the not the type who complains but this experience warrants a warning, DO NOT BOOK YOUR WEDDING BLOCK HERE.
