La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa
I had my wedding at La Torretta in March and was very happy with the venue. Most of our guest booked a room there as well and everyone was very happy with the quality of the rooms and friendliness of the staff. We were going to have our ceremony at the wedding circle, which overlooks the lake, however the weather made that impossible. We were moved into a gorgeous ballroom that overlooks the wedding circle through a wall of windows for the ceremony. We had our reception at the energy bar which is actually one of the hotels lounge/bars. I got a lot of comments on how warm and inviting the reception area was and everyone loved the food. The staff was spectacular. We had a few issues getting in touch with the banquet coordinator at times on the day of the wedding and for about a week before, but in all fairness, there were at least 4 other wedding going on that weekend so I can understand she was stretched pretty thin, I just felt they should given her an assistant on the weekends they are so booked to make things run a little smoother. Overall I was very happy with La Torretta, its a gorgeous property, Shon (banquet coordinator) was great and the rest of the staff was too, in fact we plan on going back for a weekend in the summer to enjoy all the amenities and the water park we couldn't use while we were there because of the weather.
Me and my wife had our wedding here just this July of 2012. It's interesting that we kept seeing negative reviews before we chose this place, because we actually scouted out several venues for our wedding, primarily around Conroe, and this was by far the most suitable. Our wedding director Alana is leaving the company, which is unfortunate, because she did a really great job. She wasn't rude at all, took her time with us, showed us everything at La Torretta. We looked at everything in January when the lake was all dried up, but by the time we got married, they fixed up all the decks and the water was restored. It was absolutely beautiful. Everything went exactly to our plans. The food was REALLY good! I can't say one thing really made me displeased with this venue other than our coordinator was no where to be seen. She made everything happen on time, but it would have been nice to see her now and then. Our DJ "Mobile Music" ended up coordinating quite a bit of the wedding just because no one else was around to do it. He was an excellent DJ btw, really went above an beyond. Anyhow, I highly recommend this venue which made for some awesome photos and memories, but I can't recommend any directors or coordinators. Just meet up with them and hope for the best. If you don't like them, try another person.
There were MULTIPLE problems with La Torretta. From the "mishaps" with the contract, to complete miscommunication with the consultant. They didn't even care to ensure the correct honeymoon suite that the strawberries and Champaign were to be delivered. We found the next day that the items were delivered to another room. The communication was horrible and it takes a lot of time to iron out misunderstandings. My bridesmaids and I had to figure out where to sleep the night before the wedding because the bridal suite was (somehow) not booked EVEN when I had to confirmation and payment card IN HAND—needless to say this happened with my wedding coordinators room the night of the wedding after she was exhausted and just wanted to get some rest. She had to drive all the way back home because there was “no room booked” despite confirmation numbers emailed to us. All in all, we made it through but I wouldn’t recommend. I actually referred a friend there and they ended up canceling the contract because they were having the same contract issues. A co-worker has a golf club membership there and DID warn me of these things prior to, but I didn’t listen. Take my advice, if you want your day (and post-wedding days) to be smooth sailing, KEEP SERACHING and please do not book here!!
So many spots on this property to chose from! EVERY member of the staff is exceptionally friendly! Some of the best food I've tasted in a while. After the wedding, my husband and I were amazed at the number of guests who told us that we had the best food out of any wedding they've ever attended!
We loved this place and we couldnt ahve asked for more beautiful scenery and venue for a gorgeous wedding. Staff and our coordinator were extremely professional and made our day more than we could imagine.
Working with Christine O'Hagan was a pure joy! She is highly professional while being easy to talk with and relate to. We so enjoyed our reception and received nothing but highest praise from all our attendees.....especially the bride and groom!
