My daughter just had her wedding and reception at Tween Waters Resort. It was AMAZING!!!! Kelsey and Christine made sure everything was flawless. The food was excellent and everyone was talking about how good it was. Dan and Pauline did a wonderful job taking care of everyone during the reception. They were awesome!!! We couldn't ask for a more perfect day. We are planning on going back to the resort for a vacation. We loved the area and the resort.

In July 2013, we held my daughters reception at Tween Waters Inn Island Resort. 40 people stayed here from out of town for her wedding and it was perfect! In July 2014, I got married and held my reception here. It too, was perfect. We could not have asked for a better location or better service. We received so many compliments on the plated dinners, you could cut the steaks with a butter knife! The entire staff goes above and beyond to make everything just right. Christine & Kelsey were life savers in helping us plan the receptions. They happily accommodated every need we had including last minute unexpected add-ons! I would recommend 'Tween-Wates for anything from a simple dinner in The Crow's Nest, a vacation or a wedding.

I really couldn't be happier with everything we had at Tween Waters. From the ceremony to the reception, to spending the entire week at the resort with family and friends. Everything was perfect! Christine and Kelsey both were extremely helpful and really delivered on everything. Such a stress free and amazing wedding!

The site at the beach was breathtaking and the reception at the Kayac and Canoe Club was perfect: the food the service were excellent.

A great with wonderful, friendly, and attentive staff. Everyone goes out of their way to make you feel special and ensure you have a great time. Dan took care of our reception setup and service and is such a nice person and very attentive. Christine was a great help answering all my questions and ensuring that our ceremony was perfect. The day could not have been more perfect, beautiful ceremony on the beach and a great reception. The rooms are beautiful and our bay view was unbelievable. The spa was ladies were amazing and I had so much fun getting my nails done and a wonderful couples massage with my new husband. Everyone was very helpful with my sick father and went out of their way to ensure he had fun as well. Also cannot say enough about the food. Delicious!!!!!! Never disappointed in anything we ordered. Great price for the event, we had it on a weekday which was cheaper and helped us out a lot and the resort was much quieter and less crowded.

My husband and I just got married at Tween Waters Inn and we must say that it was the best week/weekend of our entire lives. Our guests and families are still raving about the amazing time that we all had during our stay and we wish more than anything that we could do it all over again and again. We had a few different wedding coordinators from the time we first booked Tween Waters leading up until the wedding itself, but by far, the current coordinator, Christine Harrower, was unbelievably kind and helpful. She helped us plan everything from the big picture to the tiny details all along the way and was quick to make changes, and accommodate all of our unique requests. We scheduled multiple events throughout the weekend for our guests and all of them went off without a hitch. Our guests continue to compliment the staff at Tween Waters on how nice and welcoming they were to all of us. I cannot imagine having a better location for our wedding and would recommend this resort hands down to anyone who is thinking about getting married there. We plan to spend some anniversaries back at tween waters and all of our guests are getting ready to plan their next trip back as well. Lastly, the food was absolutely amazing -- the chef was quick to adjust menu items, and went along with every one of our requests/suggestions. We want to sincerely thank the entire staff at Tween Waters, and most importantly Christine Harrower, for making this the most memorable and amazing trip of our lives. We will see you again sometime soon!

What a DREAM wedding. This place was great. All I had to do was show up and say "I do" lol! Destination wedding dream! Christine the wedding coordinator is wonderful. She is so sweet and did a great job giving me pointers! We had a true sunset wedding and what a backdrop that was. The valet guys set up everything for me- I didn't have to worry about a thing! Family came from everywhere- and had a blast. We didn't even leave- had breakfast there- sandwiches for lunch and dinner at the Crows Nest. Shout out to SOAD at the Tween Water's Spa- she was wonderful. She took my idea for my hair and made me beautiful! She also did my makeup just right! She truly made me "glow" for my wedding day. Seriously girls this is the place to go for a destination wedding.Show up, have fun and say I do! Cant wait to go back!!!!!!!!

We chose to have our wedding at Tween Waters because of the warm welcome we received when we went to see the property. I had stayed there several times in the past but my husband to be had never been there. After visiting several different venue options on Sanibel and feeling extremely frustrated and ready to just elope at that point Tween was our last hope before heading back home. We left feeling excited and that this was it! Over the months leading up to the wedding the wedding coordinator changed three times, and I will be honest it was a bit concerning. The final coordinator Christine was wonderful, I know I was not pleasant at times due to my frustrations of the wedding coordinator kept changing but Christine knocked it out of the park in the end! She pulled everything together beautifully and it truly was our dream wedding and just what we wanted! (Brings tears to my eyes thinking about it now!) Our ceremony took place on the beach and the reception was in the Canoe and Kayak Club. The food was absolutely amazing from our tasting to the wedding day, and everyone loved it!! We had BBQ ribs, chicken and grouper with all the fixings. We also had mini apple pies and key lime tarts served with our cake because we were so impressed at our tasting with the desserts. We had family and friends that stayed there on the property with us and the night before the wedding and the night of the wedding after the reception we all had a blast dancing and singing to the band as we closed down the Crows Nest each night. Everyone at Tween that was involved in our wedding especially Dan and Christine you truly helped make our day so special and for that we are ever so grateful to you! We hope go back and celebrate our first anniversary next year!
