Beautiful amazing location for my outdoor wedding. Our ceremony was on a bluff overlooking the ocean. Our reception was held inside the gorgeous tent with draped fabric ceilings. Anna the wedding director was there every step of the way and so easy to work with, answering any questions and going above and beyond! Our wedding was perfect and went by so smoothly.

We held our destination wedding at The Cliffs in June of 2014. We had a group of about 30 travel and stay at the hotel. The hotel was wonderful and we can't wait to stay there again. Anna was so friendly, kept us on track for planning and had great suggestions for other vendors in the area. She made planning a wedding from a few states away easy! The ceremony site was beautiful and the set up was perfect. We enjoyed the food and had a wonderful time, with wonderful service at the reception.

What a gorgeous place to have our wedding. We worked with Anna and she was a dream to work with. She is so sweet and flexible and easy to communicate with. We opted to have our ceremony on the lawn overlooking the ocean and then our reception in a tent. Everything that the Cliffs was responsible with went over perfectly with no problems. The food was so delicious and our guests still talk about how good it is. If you are looking to have a wedding in this type if location this is the place to do it!

The Cliffs Resort really went a long way in making our wedding weekend feel perfect. This was the site of our reception, the hotel we stayed in before and after the wedding, and the hotel we recommended for our guests. Their wedding coordinator, Anna, is THE BEST. From the beginning, Anna worked with us to really help us create the reception we wanted. She and her team set up all of the decorations for the reception, from the centerpieces, to the bathroom kits to the memorial photos and everything came out exactly how I envisioned it or better! The food was AMAZING and the views of the ocean were stunning! The hotel staff was extremely kind, friendly and accommodating and we received many compliments from our guests about the choice of hotel and the little kids in our wedding kept telling everyone they wanted to have their wedding at The Cliffs! We are definitely coming back to stay in the future!

I don't know what else to say but that The Cliffs Resort staff helped deliver the most beautiful wedding for me. Anna is just amazing-there aren't enough words to explain how extraordinary she is, and in what she does. She works effortlessly, and is very very sweet-an angel. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding coordinator. The staff at the Cliffs were also great to all of our guests who attended the wedding. I grew up in Pismo Beach, and The Cliffs Resort was the only place that I wanted to get married at if I were to get married in Pismo. I'm so happy that I did!

The Cliffs was the perfect location for a wedding, even at the beginning of Winter we had beautiful weather and the setting is beautiful, especially just as the sun was going down.

Anna Fergus is extremely professional and attentive right from the word go. I had to arrange my whole wedding from overseas, and I found it easy to get everything arranged by email with Anna; she always got back to me promptly and answered any questions fully.

On arrival at the resort, all the staff were attentive and Anna was always available to help. I had a fantastic week there leading up to the wedding, and the day itself was wonderful with once again Anna on hand to help throughout the day into the evening.

The wedding meal was lovely and served well, quite a few of our guests said it was the best wedding they had attended!

Like the other reviewers here, I completely recommend The Cliffs for a wedding. The hotel is perfect for hanging out with out of town visitors all weekend. It's a beautiful venue, the food is awesome and the location is ideal. But the highlight is the wedding/event coordinator for the hotel - Anna Fergus. She is simply the best from start to finish.

I held a 160 person wedding at Cliffs and the food was amazing. Cliffs will customize a menu from everything to sushi appetizers and a late night taqueria bar. ALL the guests raved about each course. The wedding coordinator was extremely organized and made it a stress-free event for me (the bride) and all of my bridesmaids. Blue ocean views and plenty of greenery. Dolphin Bay next door was also an upscale option but would not accomodate a party past 10:30 and rooms were almost twice the price for a further walk to the beach. Cliffs can do almost anything you want. It's pricey, but it was worth it.

The Cliffs… what can I say? I had been watching brides get married at The Cliffs since I was a little girl so as I was looking for a vendor, they stuck in my mind. Once I finally decided to go with them, it was a huge load off. To start, the location is gorgeous. GORGEOUS! I had my reception there (in the tent) but have seen many ceremonies there and I would say there is nowhere else in Central Cal that can offer you a view that The Cliffs can. The service and food is really great; my guests still talk about it. (The food at the tasting wasn’t as good as it was on the night of the reception (luckily!), just FYI.) The hotel is great, needs some work, but it’s great and has good energy. The packages they offer are well put together, but the place is very expensive and offered little in the way of flexibility. That said, if they are in your budget and available, you definitely want to book with them. Last, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Anna. Anna was the coordinator we worked with and she is not just a wedding coordinator, but a Super Hero version of one. She is the best of the best (of the best). If you want a coordinator that shows up out of nowhere when you even THINK you need something, she’s your girl.

When I first started looking for a venue I started looking in the bay area for the perfect spot. I figured that since the bay area is so large I wouldn’t have a problem finding what I was looking for. It turns out after searching high and low, visiting countless places that I wasn’t able to find what I was looking for. Feeling discouraged I almost gave up, until I came across some reviews for the Cliff resort. The pictures were amazing almost too good to be true. I decided to make the trip down to see for myself. It was better than what I imagined. The weather was better then Monterey County, the location was perfect in that I could have my beach wedding without getting my toes in the sand, and the hotel was gorgeous and modern. Further more the food was delicious. I got nothing but rave reviews about how good the food was (which is hard to find when cooking for so many people). Most importantly I cannot say what impressed me the most about the Cliffs resort is their awesome staff and wedding coordinator Anna. Anna was unbelievable and made our wedding day amazing. Even before our wedding day she was super helpful and always willing to answer any question I had (and believe me I had a lot of questions). She would even take the time to answer me emails at midnight. In my mind she completely went above and beyond and I am extremely blessed to have worked with her. Thank you sooo much for making our wedding day amazing! It was completely a dream come true!

I was attracted to this venue because of the location and simplicity in having a fabulous outdoor tented reception overlooking the Pacific. I cannot being to explain how much more than just a beautiful location this site was! Anna Fergus is the Director of Wedding Services at the Cliffs and she is beyond a blessing for any Bride out there. She is truly the most professional, kind, caring and detail-oriented event planner that I have had the pleasure of working with. I put together my own events for my wine business, and I have seen very good work, but I was truly blessed to have found her for my wedding. Do not think twice about the Cliffs, just snag the date if you can get it! -G. Brockway
