DoubleTree Ocean Point Resort & Spa
WARNING: ONLY BOOK IF YOU WANT TO SPEND YOUR WEDDING DAY CRYING.
My husband and I booked the Wee Wedding Package here for our destination wedding in February. Quite frankly, I wish I had spent a little more money and gone somewhere else. It was a fight with the hotel staff through the entire wedding planning to get someone to talk to me or listen to me or answer my questions. The hotel initially did not do what they said they were going to do in the contract they gave us, and we had to call several different people at the hotel to make sure the contract did not lapse. It is not a good sign when you have to tell someone how to do their job because they aren't doing it. The staff was also extremely difficult to get in contact with throughout the wedding planning process. Additionally, when I showed up to the hotel the day before my wedding, there was no one there from the event planning to even meet me. I expected to at least meet someone who would be helping me the next day, but apparently that was an unrealistic expectation. As a result, I didn't even know where my wedding would be located, I didn't know where I was supposed to go, and I didn't know if the event was even going to happen. Three hours before my wedding start time, I still didn't know. I spend the entire morning on my wedding day CRYING because the hotel staff was soooo unresponsive. I could not get in contact with anyone!! I called the hotel manager, and someone finally contacted me. Everything did get set up at the last minute, and it looked really nice. The food was also good. However, when we got home from our honeymoon, we also noticed that the HOTEL CHARGED US ALMOST TWICE THE AMOUNT OF OUR CONTRACT PRICE for the wedding package!!! And, of course, it was another battle to get our money back as once again no one was responsive. We finally got the money back, but it was a horrible process. What a rotten way to spend my wedding. I DO NOT RECOMMEND.
Everything was so pretty, the room we got for my husband and I was beautiful, and the staff was very courteous.
we had our wedding with cindi stone earlier this month. she is so responsive to questions, emails and phone calls. i couldn't have asked for an easier person to work with!!! the wait staff and bar staff were great during the reception. the food was ok, the fish was cooked wonderfully but the stuffing left something to desire. overall though, a great wedding and all our guests had a wonderful time. they thought the view was amazing!!!
My wedding was at Double Tree Ocean Point and was nothing but AMAZING! I worked with Cindi Stone and she is just wonderful. I can not say enough about her. She is great to work with and answered every question I emailed her. The day of my wedding everything flowed perfect. My wedding had to go inside b/c of the rain and I was upset at first, but when I seen the way it was set up I could not complain. The views from the room were fantastic. We had a brunch wedding and the food that was served was delicious. Everything was perfect. Again, I can not say enough about Cindi and the staff. It was everything and more!
Cindi is a pleasure to work with, and very accommodating she played a big role in making my wedding a success. My guest were impressed with the flow of the evening from how they were escorted to ceremony, to the cocktail hour, and then to the reception. There was no lag time, my guest were never waiting for food or drinks. My guests also raved about how much they enjoyed the food and service. My out of town family stayed in the hotel for the weekend, and they were able to enjoy a wonderful vacation a great hotel and also attend a wonderful wedding all in one location.
I worked with Cindi Stone to help reserve a block of rooms for my wedding guests at the DoubleTree Ocean Point Resort & Spa. Cindi was very helpful and always responded to my emails. The hotel itself was BEAUTIFUL and in a perfect location for out-of-town guests because it is so close to lots of great, local restaurants, as well as all the conveniences you might need (grocery stores, spas, pharmacies, gas stations, shops, etc.). We even got upgraded to a 2-bedroom suite for free!! I can't really explain how wonderful of a start to our wedding experience that was, but if you could've seen my face when they told me, you would understand! The hotel was fairly expensive, but with the block discount, it was definitely one of the better deals in the area. The staff at the hotel were beyond helpful and were proactive in getting information about the wedding so they could best serve all of our guests. I hope to stay here again in the future, and I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Sunny Isles.
Our wedding at the DoubleTree Ocean Point Resort and Spa was INCREDIBLE!! Cindi Stone and her team (Ana, Edison, Shalack etc.) really went ABOVE and BEYOND to make everything so very special. From the time we booked, I knew we chose the right venue. Any questions we had; Cindi was there to answer them. I must have emailed her a 100 times throughout the process and she was so helpful with everything; even things that shouldn’t have been her concern. She is so on her game and so thoughtful and caring to everyone. I don’t think our wedding would have been what it was without her and the team. I honestly wish we were able to hire her for the entire Day- of -Coordinating. She might as well been. Any issue that came up (I won’t get into the dreaded details), she found a way to make them better. Without her, there would have been complete chaos. My family and I are truly grateful for all her and her entire team’s hard work. I can’t say enough about this amazing venue!!! Cindi, I thank you from the bottom of my heart…YOU TRULY ARE REMARKABLE!!! I am going to really miss you!!
If you're interested in having a beachside wedding without worrying about permitting, sand, and logistics, the beachview terrace at the Ocean Point resort is a perfect compromise.
I can't say enough about Cindi, or the rest of the hotel staff. The level of service from everybody is unlike anything I've seen. It was a little difficult to get a hold of Cindi at times, but this was months prior to the wedding day. She'll get back to you when she can, and rest assured that in the weeks leading up to your event, you'll receive her undivided attention. I have no idea what I would have done without her help...this being my first (and only!) wedding, her experience and advice definitely helped me from flubbing on key details. She was extremely flexible with all my requests, and was instrumental in helping me create the unique wedding I had in mind.
The food for the wedding was delicious. Everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly, and served hot. My chicken breast was something I would have gladly ordered had it been served at a restaurant like the Cheesecake Factory...in short, atypical of what you'd expect from a hotel.
The hotel is beautiful, no small detail is overlooked by any member of the staff, and my out of town guests, the bridal party, my husband, and myself thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Doubletree. I would recommend them to anybody in a heartbeat. We can't wait to return for our one-year anniversary.
We fell in love with this hotel for our wedding since our first visit. We were looking for a hotel that only held one event per evening and one that was not overly popular and crowded. Cindi is the catering manager and was very helpful and understanding. Many of our out of town guests and in town family checked into the hotel during the week and they all loved it there. Our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were lovely. It was exactly what we had dreamed of.
Cindi was great and the food was amazing, the views are unforgettable overall so happy!!
I have one word that describes both the Doubletree Oceanpoint Resort and Spa as well as Cindi Stone- their catering manager "SPECTACULAR!". Cindi was not only instrumental with the planning of my event- she was equally as attentative during the night of our reception. She is a caring and compassionate individual that leaves no detail unattended to. Her team is equally as responsive; they go above and beyond to make your event MAGICAL. I hosted close to 100-guests and everyone left our event feeling OVERJOYED by the great service, delicious food, fabulous drinks and ambiance. Guests that utilized the valet service were evn given cookies by the receptionist staff while they waited for their cars. Thanks again to an amazing group of professionals. This resort is my ONLY recomendation for a spectacular event.
On September 3rd 2011 My granddaughter had her reception at the Ocean Point Resort. It turned out superb. The food and service was excellent. Cindi was a huge help to my daughter. My daughter was more nerious than my granddaughter. Cindi was on top of everything.She really made the day go smooth. From the day we decided to have the reception there she was a geat help. Thank you for making my granddauhter's wedding truly a day to remember.
I cannot possibly begin to tell you the wonderful things I have to say about the staff, the service and the venue at the Double Tree. Cindi is AMAZING. She is kind, helpful, caring and truely an amazing asset to this property. I couldn't imagine the event going any smoother. Eddison was also a doll. So helpful, so kind and my guests loved him! I had visited 5 properties before I selected the Doubletree and looking back, none of them offered the amenties and services that the Doubletree can offer. The rooms are perfect and the veranda is the perfect backdrop for any beach style wedding. I'm so grateful to the staff in all aspects for their dedication to quality customer service and to making our special day just so perfect. Thank you and mostly- Thank you Cindi Stone!
Cindi had great ideas she shared with us in addition to the fact that throughout the planning phase she kept in regular contact, responded promptly to all my inquiries and worked efficiently with the other vendors we hired. This is a professional you can count on even for the last minute unexpected problems that are inevitably encountered. I forgot to write the table #s on the place cards. My error was discovered moments before walking down the aisle. By the time the ceremony was over, Cindi had resolved the problem by organizing a group of staff to enter the table #s. The guests were all seated properly. In the week before the wedding all you must do is provide Cindi with the Info she requests and you can be guaranteed a well run wedding. She was there all night until the party was over never leaving the decisions or oversight to chance. The hotel is beautiful, the staff is cheerful and they have the best weather back up location you can find
I definitely recommend this venue to futire brides. The prices were very afordable considering the location and the service was outstanding. The venue is gorgeous, prices are reasonable, food was good, the view is amazing. All our guests were very impressed and loved it.
Hotel staff was amazing from start to end!!!
The services were wonderful. They were extremely helpful in the planning of the event and during the event. I would not hesitate to have my wedding there again or any other event. The venue is beautiful, but without a great and responsive staff and great food, it wouldn't matter. Fortunately for me, the Doubletree Ocean Point had it all!!! And it was a great value for the money as well.
Our Wedding Reception was held at the doubletree. Couldn't ask for better service, location or food. Our Catering Manager Cindi Stone was a pleasure to work with. My only comment would be that the hotel guest rate process was a bit difficult. Also I can't believe they put our honeymoon suite on the same floor as our family!!! awkward!
Amazing! Thank you Cindy for making our day a bliss! My wedding was wonderful Doubletree is great for wedding, great sevice awesome food....extremly pleased thank you !!
I loved the view. However, We were told we had the bar until 10pm and they called last call at 9:15. My contract said I had the room until 10pm, however, the original booking agent told us it was fine if we stayed until 11pm. When we did end up leaving (at 10 because all the light were turned on and my DJ was instructed to stop) they started breaking down tables. While my husband was gathering our gifts, a table which was left unattended fell on his ankle, and he was wheeled up to our room after being given a splint from someone in the family, because no one at the hotel had any supplies. The "loss prevention guy" did speak english and it was incredibly difficult to understand him. All he did was ask our name and address. The breakfast that I was suppose to have set up, never was. When they finally set up the tables everyone was finished, and I had to complain 3 times. When I saw the coordinator later that morning, I let her know about the breakfast and my husband's leg, and all she said, was that she was sorry. I feel i should have been offered some compensation for the fact that I was not given the brunch that I, and my guest were expecting. I paid the $19 that the rest of the hotel paid, but I also paid the 21% service fee for the tables in addition to the $12,000 for food and beverage as well as the 20 something rooms that were purchased by my guest for the weekend, and I would think that I would have been treated with a little priority, but I never was. Even when I tried to check in. When I check in, they put holds on all of my credit cards, and I still don't know what ended being charged by the end. Then a dress was left in one of our guest rooms. I called 2 hours after she checked out, and no one ever got back to us. Our grandmother lost her wedding ring in another room, and I called again within a few hours of checking out, and again no one ever got back to us, not even to say they check the room or anything. If the rooms were cleaned they should have found the items, but I don't know if they ever even checked because they never gave the courtesy to call us back.
Our wedding was amazing!! The catering manager, Cindi was excellent. She was a pleasure to work with, she answered all of my questions and took care of all of my needs. I am going to miss interacting with her on a regular basis.
Food: Delicious from what I was told (I didn't get to eat much), but guests raved about how awesome it was. That doesn't happen often at weddings, wedding food is never that great but at Doubletree it was.
I wish I could do it all over again and I wouldn't want it anywhere else. This is a great venue and Cindi is great to work with. The staff was great as well.
I was very pleased with everything the DoubleTree provided!
Doubletree Ocean Point Resort in Sunny Isles was THE perfect venue for our wedding. The views from both banquet rooms are beautiful, and the veranda is a picturesque and comfortable location to hold an oceanfront ceremony. Our guests thought it was one of the best weddings they had been to! The Catering Manager, Terry, was a huge bonus! She was absolutely wonderful to work with, and with us not having hired an official "Wedding Planner" she had done wonders to keep the rehearsal & wedding day running smoothly. I would definitely recommend!
Terry was extremely helpful with planning our "Destination Wedding." She was patient with my many emails and very helpful in working with us to stick to our budget and make the most of it. She was wonderful on the day of, keeping me well informed and adding her expertise to the decor as my family and friends tried to set up. She is very professional and gives each bride her full attention on their day. She even brought us our drinks and some appetizers as my husband and I were getting pictures taken! I don't think we would have been able to pull off our wedding without all of her help. I couldn't be more thankful for her patience and dedication to our wedding day. I would definitely recommend her and this beautiful hotel to anyone!
Terry was extremely flexible in working with us and helping us create exactly the ceremony and reception that we wanted. She went out of her way to help us keep everything at a reasonable cost, too, even though our wedding was relatively small. We were also very impressed with other staff at the Ocean Point, who were extremely friendly and more than willing to help when Terry was not available (for example, by organizing an impromptu wine tasting for us when we showed up unannounced on a day that Terry was not working there). We are very happy with our experience.
Thank you Terry and staff for all the service that you provide in my special day you really made my wedding The dream day... Thank you from Patricia and Julio vega
thank you for everything our day could not be any more perfect.everything was on time as we asked and everything ran so so smooth.would highly recommend it to anyone.thanks again so so much for a DREAM WEDDING.
Michael & Inga Begley
The venue is amazing and for the price you definetely get everything you expect! Terry and the staff were outstanding every step of the way. Terry was the only catering manager from all the venues we looked on the beach that took her time to show us the entire property, go over the wedding in details, and took it a step further to even show us the accomodations for myself and my bridal party. The day of the actual wedding she went above and beyond her call of duty and helped setting up and dealing with vendors. All my guests kept telling us how beautiful the place was and how outstanding the food and service was. Both my husband and I couldn't ask for more and definetely recommend the property and staff at the Doubletree to everyone!
The venue is not just beautiful but Terry and the staff at the double tree are all wonderful! Terry made sure that my wedding day went by as smoothly as possible. No need to worry when working with Terry.... she definately played a big part in making my wedding day as perfect as I had ever dreamed of!
I was a destination bride and had my rehearsal dinner there on the beach, my wedding ceremony on the veranda and my reception brunch in the Atlantic point room. I am from Buffalo NY and put all my faith and trust into Terry for my wedding. She and the staff at the DoubleTree Ocean Point resort were wonderful to all of my guests not just us (the bride and groom). There were over 40 of us that traveled there to stay at the hotel. Terry and Alex made us all feel welcome and at home at the Oceanpoint. Terry was there every step of the way even through the ceremony and reception brunch. She handled everything professionally and exactly as asked. She even helped with things that to me seemed out of her "job description." The venue was gorgeous and perfect. My day could not of been better and Terry made sure that it was that way. If u are looking for a picture perfect day this venue should be your choice and Terry is your woman.
Terry Longo is unsurpassed. I had my rehearsal dinner at the hotel and due to traffic arrived at the scheduled rehearsal time. When I arrived at the hotel Terry had done my rehearsal dinner centerpieces and set them out for us. On the wedding day she was checking up on me all day making sure that I was doing ok and that all my vendors were on schedule. Terry and her staff turned around my reception site, the Atlantic room, in less than 30 minutes from a previous wedding. The woman is a miracle worker because my layout was completely different from the previous wedding. I had my ceremony on the beach, the reception on the Veranda and my dinner in the Atlantic. All my family and friends are still talking about what a spectular location my wedding was held at. Terry goes above and beyond her call of duty. Her staff mirrors her dedication and level to service. One of the waiters even took time out to tie my ring bearer's shoe laces. That attention to detail is unparelled. I will never forget my incredible day and how Terry helped make it all possible.
Terry Longo did a fantastic job coordinating our wedding and displayed all the professionalism, responsiveness, and service required for someone in her field. She was also extremely helpful in suggesting vendors who would be a good fit for us. The ratings above reflect our experience at the Doubletree overall -- Terry would get 5 stars across the board.
It's an unforgettable and beautiful location. Our guests are still talking about the views and their wonderful weekend in Miami.
Terry Longo, the catering manager at the Ocean Point resort made our day the most memorable and most special day of our lives. She was very helpful with planning our destination wedding as we live in New Hampshire. Terry recommended alot of vendors that we used for things such as Floral, DJ services, our wedding cake and most importantly Rev. Michael Calderin who married us. I highly recommened the Ocean Point Resort, it is a beautiful place. The entire staff was great!
This Hotel was an amazing place to have my wedding. The veranda for the ceremony was beautiful and the Atlantic point room for the reception has the most amazing views. The catering manager there is wonderful she got everything done that I wanted and I didn't have to think at all that day about if things were getting done. She stayed throughout most of the night. Terry is very organized and I really appreciated that. She really helped to make our day very special.
My husband and I could not have been happier with the choice of our venue. DoubleTree Ocean Point was the perfect spot for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The staff was outstanding, especially the catering manager Terry Longo. Our guests raved about everything from the staff to the food. I highly recommend this venue.
The value of the venue & catering was the best. The quality of service from Terry Longo was the best. Delivering us drinks, without asking, on the beach while taking pictures was over the top.
We have so many positive things to say about our experience with the Doubletree Oceanpoint Resort & Spa!! We live in California and we decided to have a destination wedding in Miami Beach so all of our friends and family, coming from within the US and Venezuela, could come to celebrate with us in a beach front location. We planned this event from across the country, which we thought would be very challenging, but Terry Longo, the catering manager, really made things easy and convenient for us. Living out of state, we weren't able to visit the facilities to make decisions regarding layout and decorations; but the information and photographs provided on her blog really helped us figure things out.
Terry helped us from the very beggining, always available and helpful. She helped us every step of the way during the planning process. We decided to do all of our wedding events at the Doubletree as they provided very reasonable prices and offered some concessions.
Our wedding weekend was simply amazing! The rehearsal dinner on Friday was at their "Atlantic Room", a gorgeous room facing the turquoise waters of the ocean. Terry payed attention to every last detail and, along with the head waiter Edisson, we received a superb service! Our wedding ceremony and reception took place on Saturday. The ceremony was at their "Veranda", an outdoor deck with a great beachy feel; our guests also enjoyed delicious appetizers and drinks at their "View Terrace" before heading to the "Ocean Point" party hall for a great and classic reception. Terry really made sure I had no stress that day and took care of everything--organizing everything, coordinating with my vendors, making sure everyone was taken care of, bringing us drinks down to the beach while we were getting our pictures taken, overseeing the waiters and service staff, and much more! We had a farewell brunch on Sunday and, again, everything turned out to be so beautiful--they even made sure to save my centerpieces from the night before to decorate the room on Sunday!
A wedding is a very special occassion and Terry at the Doubletree helped make this the most special day of my life :)
We were extremely happy with our choice to have our wedding at the Double Tree Oceanpoint Resort & Spa, Sunny Isles Beach, FL.The location is absolutely perfect for a "beach front" wedding, and the property is beautifully decorated and situated in an exclusive part of N Miami Beach area. All of our photos have a naturally gorgeous background because of this special location. We were thoroughly impressed with the dedication and creativity of the hotel's Catering Manager, Terry Longo. Ms. Longo made you feel like she was part of the wedding party and cared at a level not normally seen from a vendor. There was no level of detail that she would not touch or provide guidance, including suggestions and alternatives to add a level of elegance to the entire event. Most important to point out about having our wedding at the Ocean Point was the level of service and attention given to me and my family by Terry. She constantly went above and beyond without being asked, just went on her gut instinct. The relationship she built with myself and my family has left a lasting impression. This type of service should never go unrecognized!! Because of her caring and professional manner she has not only built a wonderful relationship with myself, but with all others I come in contact with wishing to stay or plan an event in the area. Terry is now also one of the family!!!
I am very pleased with having selected the DoublTree Ocean Point Resort and Spa for the location of our wedding. The service provided by everyone at the hotel was above average, from before we even booked the location to following up on the event and our stay at the hotel. For us, Miami was somewhat of a destination wedding, we live in Boston, most of guests were travelling from out of town, so we wanted a location where our guests could enjoy a mini vacation, as well as our wedding, and the DoubleTree gave us just that. It was difficult to choose a location from Boston, but I chose the DoubleTree based soley on the photos and reviews, and it was truly a fabulous selection. The staff ensured that our stay and our wedding day ran smoothly, and were extremely flexible and understanding of our undecisiveness when it came to some ceremony location choices.
All of our guests and family are still talking about the wedding and their stay while in Miami, it was truly a memorable experience.
We were extremely happy with our choice to have my daughter's wedding at the Double Tree Oceanpoint Resort & Spa, Sunny Isles Beach, FL. The location is absolutely perfect for a "beach front" wedding, and the property is beautifully decorated and situated in an exclusive part of N Miami Beach area. All of our photos have a naturally gorgeous background because of this special location. I stayed in the two-bedroom/two-bath suite, with the bride and part of the bridal party. The space was more than adequate for all of us, including the huge master-bath area and a full-size kitchen, which was handy when we chose to stay in to eat. The balcony views were spectacular from any angle. From the front desk personnel to the room service attendants to the catering manager, Terry Longo, and the reservation manager, Alex, everyone was professional and helpful. Terry was with us every step of the way, assisting in planning and mapping out all of our wedding details. She responded to all of our requests, voice messages, e-mails and questions in a timely manner. We even encountered a situation where Terry brought to our attention some additional available money in our wedding account so we could spend it in another area of catering. This allowed us to expand upon our venue for the reception. She was readily available the entire day of the wedding from the ceremony throughout the reception. And, she made certain our personal decorations and items were carefully boxed and packed away at the end of the reception. As the mother of the bride, I had the least stressful day on the day of the wedding since the entire year of wedding planning. I owe this to the staff and employees at Double Tree, and Terry Longo, catering manager. We are grateful for Terry's expertise in the field of catering and wedding planning.
We were thoroughly impressed with the dedication and creativity of the hotel's Catering Manager, Terry Longo. Ms. Longo made you feel like she was part of the wedding party and cared at a level not normally seen from a vendor. There was no level of detail that she would not touch or provide guidance, including suggestions and alternatives to add a level of elegance to the entire event. It was a destination wedding for us and in addition to talking on the phone, she was able to keep us informed of relevant aspects through the 150+ emails that were flowing back and forth between us in a fairly compressed time frame. The other vendors that she recommended/coordinated for us given our lack of knowledge about local resources were for flowers, cake, chairs, decorations and the minister. Ms. Longo is an asset to the hotel and will make future brides and grooms pleased to have selected this venue for their wedding (which is on the beach). All of our guests (small party of 40) were truly impressed with the way it all turned out and we all had a great time!
Terry Longo was our catering manager and she was fabulous! Everything was perfect from the amazing food, to the up-scale service and breath-taking, ocean views. Highly recommended!
Food was amazing and you cannot beat the location on the beach. Terry did an exceptional job making sure we were all taken care of. Everyone was very flexible changing times based on our ceremony at the church taking longer than expected. I recommend getting the suite with the package. My wife and I loved the doubletree and highly recommend it. Also, we used almost all of their preferred vendors and were very happy. We especially recommend gregory paul for photography.
Catering manager is amazing and did a great job in making my wedding perfect!
I was the event planner for this particular event. Terry Longo and her staff definitely went above and beyond the call of duty. They were there the whole time to assure everything went off without a hitch.
I would definitely recommend this location for the bride who wants the breath taking view of the ocean but doesn't want the sand between her toes. The veranda was perfect!
Terry Longo, her staff and Double Tree Hotel were very accomodating and helpful for this event!

The catering manager was difficult to get a hold of sometimes, but he was very friendly and lowered prices for us. The chef was able to accommodate the various odd diets of our guests, and the food was actually really good. The ceremony site was the best of any we had seen when it comes to oceanfront views.
Vendor response to review
Please note that this post was in response to the previous catering manager who left the property in October 2009. Since then, Terry Longo (female Catering Manager) has been at the DoubleTree Ocean Point Resort in which you can see that her performance is exemplary and the results are shown in all the other postings.
This is one of South Florida's hidden treasures ....
Cindi @ The Ocean Point is an amazing person to work. Her client and vendor service is unparalleled and her venue is beautiful with unsurpassed breathtaking views. We highly recommend this venue and its great staff!
