Wyndham Garden Clearwater Beach
AWFUL! DO NOT BOOK YOUR WEDDING HERE!
I was shocked on my wedding day by the discourteous behavior of the onsite planner and guest services. The ONLY redeeming quality of this venue was the location. They messed up venue, food & room payment multiple times. They didn't even serve coffee & tea at dessert (and this was specifically asked about). They wanted my guests to wear WRISTBANDS. They refused to open the outdoor bar (the reception was OUTSIDE). We paid for OPEN BAR and they not only refused guests the liquor, claiming it was beer & wine only, but they had ONE bartender that catered FIRST to other guests and THEN to mine (all my guests were booked in the hotel). The "planner" came dressed in jeans and did not ONCE address me OR my husband or wish us well the entire day. My guests had to set up the reception (tables, etc) because the hotel claimed not to have enough staff. The hotel told my sister (my maid of honor AND wedding planner) that the priority did not go to our wedding, it was for the other guests at the hotel -- regardless of the fact that I paid $10k just to have a 50 guest wedding. They were unprofessional and irresponsible the entire planning process -- not returning phone calls or emails, not answering questions, etc. The cleaning service did not come into the bridal suite the morning of the wedding until we CALLED TO REQUEST them to clean the room... DO NOT SCHEDULE YOUR WEDDING IN THIS LOCATION unless you have a family as amazing as mine that took care of all the odds-n-ends the day of my wedding and many of the days leading up to it.
I choose Wyndham Garden Resort for my november beach wedding and I am so happy I did, Kelley the wedding cordinator was amazing and eased any tensions I had about my big day. I brought all of my own decorations and had planned to set up the wedding myself, to my surprise the staff took charge and when I came downstairs to walk down the ailse everything looked amazing. The staff was wonderful and very helpful throughout the event. The price of the wedding was very inexpensive for everything we received. I dont have a single thing I would change about that day. I highly recommed Wyndham and Kelley if you are planning a beach wedding in clearwater!!!!!
