I cannot say enough great things about Sunset Key! First off, my parents stayed in the Paradise cottage and OMG it is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! My big family has so much space! And the staff was so quick to provide us with anything we needed! Jennifer Levering with the Westin was so wonderful with the help planning our big day, and Sandy the day of also helped with the catering from Latitudes, they were all so wonderful! All of the wait staff were so great and speedy! Especially Victor & Stefan! Such sweet people! The food was amazing, my husband and I are "foodies" so the food was a big deal for us...and they didn't disappoint! We also brought our own Rose' champagne for our toast, and they graciously chilled it for us and poured our selection for everyone! The views for out ceremony and reception were impeccable, if you want seclusion and elegance, this is the place for you! Cannot wait to go back many more times for anniversaries...or just because!

We chose to get married on Sunset Key, with our cocktail hour on the Fury and the reception at Audubon house. The locations were amazing. The event flowed smoothly, and the food and drinks wonderful from start to finish. Sandy, the catering manager, was terrific. There were a few issues, though, that prevented this from being a 100% positive experience.

There was a complete lack of flexibility to work with vendors outside the small, approved list. For example, we chose a professional wedding band based out of Orlando. The Westin put up huge roadblocks when it came to the insurance coverage of the band. We had to add an additional million (yes, million!) dollars in insurance for the night, which cost us $600 dollars we weren't planning on. Erin would not finalize the wedding menu details with us until the insurance was final, and we almost lost the ability to spend the amount of money required to meet our minimum. Additionally, we worked with a wedding planner who was not on the preferred list, and in our opinion, she was treated with disrespect on several occasions.

The bartenders put out a tip jar, which we found very tacky, especially since we were charged 20% gratuity on the entire fee (including location charges),

We spent a considerable amount of money with the Westin/Sunset Key, but were treated like a number. Overall, this is a solid operation but is formulaic and does not have much flexibility for customization. If you want a dependable, paint by numbers wedding with little room for creativity, this is the option for you.

We had our ceremony at Sunset Key & our reception on the Westin pier.I can't begin to say how happy I am of what a great job Westin, Sunset Key, and their staff (Erin!) did leading up to and the wedding day! My husband and I had such a great experience. The food was so yummy and the details were all taken care of. I didn't have to worry about a thing!

I highly recommend getting married at the Westin, especially Sunset Key. That just made it past perfect! It has to be one of the most beautiful places ever. I would do it all again in a heartbeat!

Sunset Key is the perfect location for any wedding. We had a small, intimate wedding with just immediate family and I couldn't be happier! It was a gorgeous day on a beautiful beach with the exclusivity of a 'private' island that can only be reached by boat. Erin is extremely knowledgable, helpful, and friendly. She made sure all of my requests/wishes were taken care of.

We had our wedding ceremony on the beach here @ the Cottages. I can't say enough about the beautiful surroundings and the outstanding staff. Our wedding was a simple small wedding total of 20. They were very accommodating when every I had a special request for anything. It is well worth the money for the service & location absolutely stunning & five months later & our guests are still raving about Sunset Key Westin Resort. I can't wait to renew our vows here in 10 yrs. or maybe 5yr. :);)

I cannot think of a more romantic place on Key West to get married! The island is beautiful, service from the staff is unparallel, the sunsets are phenominal, and the photo ops are endless!

Erin McLaughlin, the Director of Catering, for the Westin Key West Resort & Marina and Sunset Key Guest Cottages is so easy to work with. Since we had a very small and intimate destination wedding, it was so helpful to have a professional who was knowledgeable, easy to work with, and flexible. Erin happily answered all of our questions, made our dinner reservations, and constantly kept in touch via email.

My wedding was perfect and just as I imagined.. thanks to Erin. I would strongly recommend anyone looking for wedding venues to consider this location. They only do one wedding a day so you will not have to worry about being rushed, etc. Thank you for making one of the most important days of my life possible.

We recently got married at Sunset Key. Staying at the cottages was a little out of our price range, so we stayed at the Resort & Marina and took the ferry over to the ceremony. The room there was fine, but having seen the beautiful cottages, I now long to stay on this cute little island.

First, let me say that Erin (the Director of Catering) rocks. She was super to work with -- despite the fact that we had a very small ceremony (immediate family only), she was on top of all the necessary details, including arranging special transport for my mother, who has some mobility issues.

Sunset Key, like many venues, charges based on the number of guests, so our ceremony was not a huge money maker for them. Given this, I was blown away at Erin's extrmeme attentiveness to our event and her numerous helpful suggestions. She was, in a word, lovely, throughout the entire process. Indeed, her professionalism and clear competence made planning the wedding from afar a breeze.

Second, the site itself is spectacular. Sailboats, a sunset, a beautiful dock -- what more could you want? Also, taking the ferry over made the whole experience seem a little special/exclusive, without being too much of a strain on our parents. After the ceremony, we had numerous parts of the island available for photos, which was an extra bonus.

Third, Latitudes, where we had dinner, was amazing. Our table of 9 watched the sun slip into the ocean and then dined on fantastic food and wine. When the cake came out, it had sparklers on it, which was a great touch.

Simply put, I could not have asked for a better wedding. It was exactly what I had imagined/hoped for -- simple, elegant, and relaxing. Thanks to Erin and Latitudes for making our wedding perfect!
