Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort and Spa
The venue is beautiful while pricey, but considering its location, well worth it! Laura was our event coordinator/catering manager and she was extrememly accommodating and helpful throughout the entire planning process – very responsive, considerate, and professional.
My husband and I had our wedding there a couple of weeks ago and it was beautiful! It was just the two of us, so their small, private beach was perfect for us. The table setting and dinner were amazing! We have not stopped talking about the delicious food - hats off to the chef! David the server was wonderful - so professional and knowledgeable and fun to talk with. Laura who helped arrange everything was wonderful also. Although we didn't get a chance to meet, we exchanged several emails and she was always very quick to respond. She even provided us with a welcome / congratulations treat. The hotel was great at tending to our needs.
Extremely disappointed in the condition of the hotel. Very run down and dirty for a flagship of the Marriott Resort line. Everything in the public/event areas were worn down, tired and in need of replacement. Although the staff and wedding coordinator tried to accomodate us, they cannot make up for the condition that the owners of this hotel have allowed it to deteriorate to.
Vendor response to review
Thank you for your comments and feedback as it is used to improve for the future. Our property has just undergone an extensive renovation and it is unfortunate that your wedding happened to take place during these positive changes.
Our guestrooms, lobby and outside areas have been renovated and updated to meet Marriott's standards. The lobby furniture is brand-new and gorgeous and the rooms are breathtaking. Our AAA rated four diamond, four star resort has been updated and improved. Again, we apologize that your wedding took place during this time.
Our wedding was a dream come true! Thanks to the entire staff at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott, our wedding day was a fairytale and exceeded our many expectations! Laura Lease, the Wedding Sales Manager, was responsive, attentive to detail and thought of things before we even had a chance! Thanks to her and her staff, we were able to start our lives together in the best way imaginable! Xoxo
Anne Marie Coppelin at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott gave us individual attention to every detail of our wedding day. Her professionalism shined through on our wedding day. We applaud the staff for giving us a perfect wedding day!
We enjoyed our wedding at Sanibel Harbour. Our guests loved the facilities and the staff was wonderful. We would recommend it to anyone looking in Ft Myers/Sanibel
We had our rehearsal dinner on the Princess Cruise and our Wedding reception in the Gardens Ballroom. The food was outstanding both nights. Service was exceptional. The resort is clean and beautiful. Banquet coordinators Robin Kocot and Adele were more than helpful in everyway possible. They are both very task oriented, acommodating and return calls and emails very fast. Great experience overall, not one complaint!
We got married April 2010 and the location was stunning. Although our wedding coordinator changed three times, each coordinator was up-to-date regarding our requests and the overall agenda of the day which we found very professional. Sanibel took good care of us regarding contacting our vendors and fixing any little issues that came up. The day of our wedding coordinator and the staff provided superior service, from the ceremony to walking around with us with an appetizer plate while we were taking pictures. On the costly side, but overall I couldn't imagine a better day! If you are looking for a beautiful setting and excellent service, this is the place to go.
Overall was pleased with the venue for my wedding. Had some issues regarding vendor insurance liability, but in the end everything was taken care of. Food was amazing, service great. Request Nikki S. as your coordinator, she helped me out and was awesome. Can be pricey, but sometimes you just have to bite the bullet.
I had a destination wedding. Myself and all of my guests stayed at Sanibel Harbour Resort. The staff was wonderful and were very accomodating. The hotel was beautiful. We got married on the beach and had the cocktail hour and reception at the hotel. The food was delicious. The entire experience with Sanibel Harbour Resort was stress free. When my husband and I returned to the room after the wedding reception, they had candles throughout the room, rose petals on the bed, a bottle of wine, cheese and fruit. They truly made it romantic. Everyone had a great time. My husband and I plan to return to the hotel for vacation. Many of our guests feel the same way.
The is the most amazing hotel I have been to in a while. Everyone that works there is so willing to do anything for you. The views for their all balcony rooms overlook mangroves and Sanibel/Captiva Islands in the distance. The food was more than we ever expected and the service blew us away. Both my husband and I could have never imagined that our wedding would be so beautiful. Go look at the hotel and you will not need to go anywhere else.
The resort is extremely beautiful. I was assigned three different catering managers in the year of planning. Unfortunately, the third one (and the one that actually worked with us during the wedding) did not demonstrate very high competency, professionalism, or customer service skills throughout our time together. She failed to inform myself or my future mother-in-law of the change to the rehearsal dinner location and menu until I asked about it. In addition, many of the questions I had posted through emails were not answered appropriately or were not answered at all. During the menu tasting, this catering manager miscommunicated to the chef one of the appetizers I wanted to taste. This resulted in two items being incorrect.
We had a great day at Sanibel Harbour! Will Roberts was the BEST; he took care of everything. Gorgeous evening; gorgeous ceremony; gorgeous sunset (although I'm pretty sure that one was God's doing...haha). I wouldn't change a thing!!
This Venue is the most beautiful place for a beach theme wedding. We got married on the dinner cruise and it was amazing. It is a 5 star resort so it is easy to have all your guest stay there because there is so much to do. We still go stay there when we visit Florida
The place is gorgeous. There was really only one thing that happened. I asked our contact there if anything goes wrong please get my maid of honor or my parents before getting me, well one thing went wrong and they got me instead. The thing that went wrong was they didn't have enough seats at each table.
Wonderful location for a wedding. Professional and helpful staff makes sure your dream wedding turns out perfect.
