I have a mixed review with them. Everything turned out nicely (only a few complaints). The facilities are great. It has a historic feel and is beautiful, which in turn helps to make a beautiful wedding. The reception rooms are all very nice...we went with the largest and it was amazing. The problem is trying to contact them. They would return phone calls 5 days later if they returned them. We had the food testing and two months later they called asking what we wanted to eat. Same with the cake. You would think they would have some type of software that they could fill this in to keep track. It came down to the point that we had to take them a sheet with step by step instructions for everything with every detail. They loved this and were amazed that someone would have all this planned "a week before the wedding". Are you kidding me? They said no one ever plans weddings earlier than a week. But this could have just been because we got a coordinator that was being promoted to another area.

Oh and the food is good...though what we tried was amazing and what they served was good. So that was dissapointing after we bragged about how good it was.

Great Location...just make sure you are on top of things.

I have to say Bill was wonderful and really made my hair beautiful. He is a really sweet man as well. There are two other stylists at the salon. Gloria did a wonderful job on my bridesmaids hair. The other guy that works there, I think his name is Michael Francesco, he was HORRIBLE and RUDE. One of my bridesmaids had an appointment at 3:00 with him. He decided at 3 that he was going to color a womans hair that he had just cut. He never acknowledged my bridesmaid or anything. Come 4:00 he still hadn't acknowledged her or apologized. By 4:30 we were really mad because my wedding was at 6:30 and we weren't even dressed or had makeup on yet. Finally Bill who was doing my hair asked Michael if he was planning on doing my bridesmaid's hair and he said "no"!!! I couldn't believe that some girls highlights were more important than a wedding. Because of this we were all so late getting ready that my wedding started 30 minutes late. I can not believe that someone could be so rude. I am thinking of sending him a "thank you for being so rude" card...

This event was beautiful and I loved every minute of planning at this location. The wedding coordinator is well informed, usually timely in responding, and open and honest about all fees. There are limited cancellation policies though.

I was initially hesitant to use this venue thinking it would be too hoitey-toitey, but my mother-in-law got a discount as a member of the Bellair CC next door.

We had the ceremony on Sand Key Beach and the reception at the Cabana Club's 3rd floor dining room. We were one of the first groups to book at the Cabana Club and first walked through before it was even complete. Our first sales / coordinator was wonderful and accommodating. She was even employee of the year the previous year. However, she quit halfway through and we got "the wedding bimbo" as our rep. Luckily for others, she's long gone. The coordinator by the day of wedding was great and was present at the event. The staff was running late for the ceremony (luckily so was I) and he personally helped put out chairs. We had a cocktail hour poolside while photos were taken. Then guests moved upstairs to the reception.

The servers were awesome. Even helped the elderly grandmas to the buffet. The food was wonderful and plentiful. I never had to ask for a drink, there was always one at my table. We lucked out with weather as guests dined on the upstairs porch. Buffet, dancing and cake were inside the closed room.

It's important to note that for 5 years prior to my wedding, I was an event coordinator for a local caterer and had really specific ideas about how things were to be done. My standards on service were elevated too, since I was in the business. They excelled in day-of service.
