My groom and I could not be more pleased with our ceremony and reception.
The venue itself is absolutely breathtaking, and having the stunning views of the beach without the Florida humidity was priceless.
Planning a wedding is undoubtedly stressful, but the Sonesta team made it easy with the catering selection and setup.
During the event, the staff made us feel like royalty as well. They made sure we took time to eat and even made plates for us since we were so busy, we didn't have time to get it for ourselves.
It was Also a great value for a buffet, open bar and cake.
The view takes the cake though. The rooms for the ceremony and reception were equally as gorgeous and we were extremely happy with our decision!

We had an incredible experience for our wedding at the Sonesta on 10/24/15. All of our guests were blown away by the penthouse views as well as the food, location from the airport and beach, and the rooms. We wouldn't have changed a thing. A minor hiccup was a slight lack of communications from our hotel coordinator in the final few weeks before the wedding, but nothing was affected by it and everything was worked out just fine. The overall experience was more like a dream and I just wish I was able to have more of the food and have it last longer! Bravo

We had our wedding at the Sonesta last weekend, October 17, 2015. My Mother-in-Law hosted the rehearsal dinner there as well which was on Friday night. Honestly, from the moment our wedding/event planner showed us the penthouse, we just knew that this was the perfect place to have our wedding. Close to the airport, beautiful rooms with breathtaking views plus it was directly across the street from the beach.
Considering that about 90% of our guests were traveling from out of town, the location was perfect!
I wanted to share a few things that really made a huge difference. The service was TOP NOTCH! I came down with laryngitis Friday morning, therefore, I could hardly speak on Friday night. The staff working at our rehearsal just went over and above my expectations. I wish I could remember the one ladies name, she was so sweet. She made it a point to have hot tea with a lot of honey at my table at all times while always checking in on me. The rehearsal dinner was located downstairs in the room by the pool, I think the name was Saio? We had about 30 people in that room with a great dinner and of course cocktails. It was perfect as well as private.
We also selected this hotel due to the fact that it has a contingency plan in case it would rain. Our heart was set on having our wedding on the beach but we both live in South Florida so we know that it can start raining at any moment of the day. They offer a room up in the penthouse that you can reserve if it is too windy or rainy. To be honest, it is such a beautiful room where if we weren't able to have our wedding on the beach, I wouldn't have been too disappointed, did I mention the views??????
After the beach ceremony, our guests were directed up the penthouse for cocktails before entering into the ballroom. I can't believe how this room was transformed. It was magical! The space is perfect for a wedding of our size about 155 or a lot more! I would highly recommend booking this hotel!!!

The penthouse wedding and reception venues was gorgeous, the food was amazing and the service was exceptional! The wait staff at the reception were extremely helpful and provided top notch service. My husband and I had several guests tell us how much they enjoyed the event and we would like to thank the staff at Sonesta for making it a truly awesome day for us and our guests. The rooms were wonderful and our out of town guests had a great stay at the hotel. Thanks to Noha, Arthur, Jeff as well as the reception wait staff!

We chose Sonesta Hotel for its location away from the congestion further south on Ft. Laud Beach. Room rates and sizes vary which allowed all our guests to stay together allowing for more quality time. There are entry of activities and site seeing walking distance.We requested all our guests booked on the tenth floor close to our suite. The rooms all have ceiling to floor ocean views,comfortable beds and nicely decorated. The entire staff was genuinely sincere and welcoming.
We chose an all inclusive location so there would be no worry about transportation or weather concerns that could have ruined our day.
The entire weekend was perfectly executed by Catering Mgr Noha Ghali, Beverage Mgr. Daniel Meys and Executive Chef Mark Heinemann.
Banquet Mgr. Jeff Carlson and his staff showcased Marks food with attentive but not intrusive service.
We and our guests have happy memories after a weekend long wedding celebration at the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach.

I would highly recommend the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale for your wedding. I had my rehearsal, brunch, wedding, and reception there the weekend of 10-25-14 and the hotel itself as well as the staff made my wedding a night to remember. The reason I originally went with the hotel was because of it's spectacular views and modern South Beach type decor. My husband and I loved the atmosphere and the proximity to the beach for our many out of town guests. Arthur Sands was a pleasure to work with and made sure everything ran smoothly. He was very helpful and responsive to my requests and helped me with the transition when the hotel changed from B Ocean to Sonesta. Arthur also recommended vendors that also were wonderful. The food for each event, my rehearsal dinner, the cocktail hour, the reception, and the breakfast was incredible. I was shocked as usually wedding food isn't always up to par.
The staff did an amazing job coordinating each of my events and I would recommend this hotel to anyone getting married that is looking for a beautiful "beach" wedding without getting your toes in the sand:)

Arthur Sands was incredibly responsive, professional, knowledgeable and kind from the beginning- even before we even decided that we seriously wanted to hold our wedding ceremony and reception at Sonesta. That goes a long way with me since it seems these days most places just want to sweet talk you and sell you impossible things. Everything Arthur promised us was delivered and then some. He made the entire planning process a breeze. He always answered any questions I might've had in a timely manner and never thought a single question I had was silly. He took the time to explain things, which meant a lot to us!

The Sonesta is just a breathtaking location for a wedding. The Horizon ballroom was picture-perfect for our brunch reception. The photos came out so well with the ocean as the backdrop. Our guests kept raving about the food and how scrumptious it was! The brunch spread was amazing!!!! We had the omelet chef, and he was a hit with our guests. We barely had a moment to eat, but what we did have was really tasty! We were told the smoked salmon and beef tips were the best.

The wait staff we had made our event all the more better. Each and every one of them was so attentive to us, the bride and groom. We always had filled champagne glasses and they even served us our food from the buffet. That kind of quality service stands out even on a special day like a wedding day. We stayed on-site that weekend and the hotel staff helped to create a special ambiance for us. They sent us champagne and a sinful dessert with a handwritten card to congratulate us. That was a thoughtful, personal touch that we both enjoyed!

The Sonesta provided a great value for our dollar and we could never imagine having our wedding anywhere else!

Our wedding at B Ocean was just beautiful. We had many guests fly in from the cold weather, so we wanted to impress them a little bit with the ocean scenery - safe to say we accomplished that! We were married outside under a full moon over the ocean - simply stunning. All of our guests commented on how well run the whole night was. The service was smooth and the staff just couldn't do enough for us. One guest told us that the food was so delicious, he was going to come back the next night for dinner! Not what one usually hears about wedding food! Arthur was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the entire planning process - he must have responded to each email I sent him within 5 minutes! He also recommended the most wonderful vendors who worked together seamlessly as a cohesive unit. I'm sure it took an army to make our wedding perfect, but I would never know. I had the least stressful day I could have imagined, and I want to do it all over again! THANK YOU!!
