Restaurante Escambron Beach Club
price is fairly good for ceremony/reception venue. however, management are in need of better communication skills with their fellow employees. we had lots of miscommunication the day of our wedding with the staff, which was very aggravating. they were not informed properly by management of our needs that day.
Undoubtedly a 5/5 service on every single aspect. The food was just amazing! Top quality on all the services they provided us.
We wanted our destination wedding to encompass the feel of Puerto Rico and felt it would be lost in your "safer pick" hotel venues. Another major factor in choosing our venue was cuisine. We wanted traditional Puerto Rican Cuisine and had a difficult time locating a worthwhile, cost effective place to accommodate our 170 guests.
With that said, It was difficult to go out on a limb and choose this venue at first. The main reason being the extremely low number of reviews. However, having the luxury of sending someone to taste test and view the venue eased some of our fears, as we were given a great review.
Initially it was difficult to get a live voice on the phone, and communication at times was difficult for the non-spanish speaker. However, as the wedding approached, Wilfredo reached out and was able to meet all of our needs.
We held our ceremony on their Terrace, it was picturesque to say the least. The back drop of Escambron Beach was breath taking. There was many options for our photographer to capture photos. Our guests enjoyed the Terrace for the outdoor cocktail hour. The typical Puerto Rican appetizers, Sangria and Coquito were delish.
The groom likes air conditioning and was concerned as a review listed that the venue did not cool well. Great thing the venue was well air conditioned and spacious for our 170 guests. The food was excellent, all of our guests both natives to Puerto Rico and guests to the island raved about the cuisine.
All in all, we are happy that we went with the Escambron Beach Club. It added to the character of our wedding and did not make it feel like a cookie cutter approach to a destination wedding. We would recommend them in the future.
It's a nice restaurant next to the beach. Not very elegant looking but still a nice place (it's not very casual either) I recommend you go here for rehearsal lunch because you can enjoy the ocean view better. It was a good place to sit outside and let the flower girl, ring bearer and any other kids that have to attend run around and enjoy the fresh sea air.Its excellent Puertorrican traditional cuisine, prices are modic. Everything was delicious.
On the bad side: service is very slow but if you have the time, and given the occasion for rehearsal lunches/dinners, you probably do, then it's worth the wait.
