I have loved working with Rhonda! She has been wonderful and has done her best to accommodate our requests for our wedding day so far. We love the South Seas and have stayed with them for the past six years. Their resort is absolutely gorgeous and the King's Crown location where we are going to have our cocktail hour and reception is truly breathtaking romantic. I would absolutely recommend this vendor!

South Seas is the perfect location for a wedding. The entire staff went a over and beyond to make our wedding more than we ever dreamed it could be. The food was outstanding! Our guests complimented that it was the best wedding and reception they had attended.
We even had to move the wedding up to 3 weeks away and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Our experience could not have been better!

Our wedding at South Seas turned out to be the most beautiful event we could have imagined. We signed our contract over a year in advance so I had plenty of time to ask a million questions. Between Jennifer, Lexie and Kelsey - all my questions were answered. The resort was so festive for the holidays, it added that extra 'wow' for all of our guests that really can't be beat. We had a minor issue with double-booked space for the Welcome Party but they came through with an even better location that was perfect for our guests. Everyone raved about how beautiful the wedding was and loved coming for a Christmas Vacation to such a beautiful resort. Even our native-Florida friends and family were wowed by this hidden jewel and said its a weekend they won't forget. I recommend this venue for a picture perfect wedding weekend, especially if you want an outdoor wedding ( ceremony and Sunset Cove and reception at Kings Crown) and even better if you have it during the boat parade and the holiday stroll! This really was the wedding of our dreams :)

From beginning to end the staff was friendly, welcoming, and extremely helpful. Given that this was a destination wedding for us, the catering sales manager was very flexible and made sure that all of our questions were answered in a timely fashion. She was patient, professional, and responsive. She also provided an excellent list of recommended vendors that were all outstanding. The food was great, and the staff was fantastic and very helpful with catering to specific food requests and allergies. We would highly recommend this wedding venue!

South Seas made by wedding weekend absolutely wonderful! I was very lucky to have Lexie as my coordinator. She was so wonderful, great to work with, flexible, professional, and EXCELLENT at what she does! We had both our rehearsal and reception out at the resort and Lexie made sure everything was perfect! She had great ideas, she was organized, always responded to emails and calls promptly, and most importantly she made our wedding PERFECT. I could not ask for a better experience. I would recommend south seas and Lexie to everyone! Or weekend was hectic with a lot of rain, but Lexie had a back up plan to everything. Everything was perfect from the venue, food, dj. We are over 3 weeks out from our wedding and are STILL getting calls and text about what a wonderful venue and how DELICIOUS the food was!! thank you to south seas and to Lexie for making our wedding everything and more!

My husband and I just had our wedding at South Seas and we could not have imagined anything more perfect. While the scenery speaks for itself, the staff, the planners, and the catering were all fantastic to work with and made the whole process enjoyable. Our coordinator Lexie was with us throughout the entire process and answered every question we had. She guided us through the tough decisions based on her experience and led to a perfect wedding ceremony and reception. The options they offer including golf carts, sky lanterns, corn hole tournaments, alternative venue sites due to weather, and stringer lighting options are just a few of the many reasons that make this an ideal place to get married. We 100% recommend having your wedding here!! We strongly recommend taking advantage of the preferred vendor list too!

Our wedding 10/31/13 at South Seas was perfection. Our coordinator Tammy DaCosta went above and beyond to make sure everything went as planned and many people said it was the best wedding they had ever attended. The food was beyond incredible and the fact that we got to use 4 different venues for our events was great. The grounds at South Seas are beautiful and the staff was great to work with, the whole experience was more than I could have asked for.
