Key West Wedding Reviews and Testimonials

  • We really felt welcomed. All of the staff quickly knew who we were and it just felt like we were all friends. We cannot wait to return to Key West to stay at the Beachside!"

    Rick and Malissa

  • Thank you so much!! You and the entire staff were great to work with. Thanks for all your patience and understanding. Key West Marriott Beachside is fortunate to have people like you on their team. We had a wonderful time, but most importantly this was truly unforgettable night."


  • I just wanted to send you a quick e-mail letting you know how much Katie and I enjoyed our stay down in Key West. You and the team are incredible. Please pass along my thanks for everything and we will hopefully see you soon!"

    Lane and Katie

  • Angela was a very special. Each associate was exceptional from check-in, housekeeping to restaurant waitress."


  • Angela, I wanted to thank you again for all of your hard work you invested in our occasion. I couldn’t have done it without all the help of my friends and family and most especially you. It was definitely a team effort."

    Thanks again!

  • Hi Carina. I didn't have a chance to say good bye yesterday, my apologies! I just wanted to let you know how satisfied we are with how everything turned out. Everything was absolutely perfect and beautiful! Everyone is talking about how delicious the food was, and what an amazing service your team provided. In fact, my maid of honor had a little accident (she fell and hurt her knee) and someone from the hotel assisted her immediately. John (Banquet Manager) was also very attentive. And my mother was very impressed by how dedicated you were. So thank you for making our special day the best day ever! I hope to be back for our wedding anniversary!"

    Un abrazo,

  • Dear Carina. Jason and I cannot thank you enough for all your help and support you provided us last Friday. You and Natalie were so prepared and so personable. There is absolutely no way our wedding would have gone even 1/2 as smoothly as it did (I received a voicemail from Publix the day after saying my cake was at Casa Marina! I am assuming you were the reason it made it to us safe and sound). Your resort is absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to come back as a guest! If there is someone (Manager/Owner) that I could contact & write to and let them know how amazing you are please give me their name and number. I would be honored to give you and your resort recommendations to future guests and let your boss know how lucky she/he is to have you! I will also send you a "formal" thank you for your outstanding service but I just wanted to drop you a quick email, yet again thanking you for your superb assistance. Thank you to you and your staff - outstanding and wonderful don't do justice."

  • Dear Carina, I just received our wedding pictures yesterday. I must tell you that the pictures are amazing. Greg and I would like to thank you for the hours of hard work you and your staff dedicated to our wedding arrangements. We spent many hours on the phone and email with you. Our expectations were met and far exceeded what we imagined possible with the long-distance plans. The property was definitely the most beautiful location in Key West. We wanted to incorporate the natural beauty of Key West into our outside ceremony. The landscaping and scenery in the cabana area captured my vision of the perfect tropical wedding. My guests were delighted to spend a beautiful afternoon in the gardens to witness our vows. Many of our guests enjoyed every aspect of the hotel's lush pool area. Much praise should go towards the exceptional lunch menu at the reception. Your unique terrace area provided a fun, relaxed atmosphere for our guests to have cocktails. As an avid cook, I was very pleased with every item offered for our menu. It was a difficult decision to choose the menu. We appreciate you and your staff allowing us to tailor the menu to our size of party. I still receive praise from our guests about the wonderful meal selection. The catering staff was very attentive to all of the guests’ requests. The display and place settings were impeccable. I appreciate the small details like setting my favors and the addition of the mimosa drinks for the toast. Since my luggage did not arrive in time, I was missing my cake cutting utensils. Immediately, your staff stepped in to offer a substitute. Those little details did not go unnoticed by us. Many special requests made, such as the personalized music selection, were honored by your staff. My wedding day was a very memorable event thanks to your special touches. My guest and myself felt quite pampered with the amenities offered at the hotel. Greg and I were very pleased with the bridal suite. The champagne and strawberry platter sent by room service was a nice surprise after a long day. Carina, Greg and I are very grateful we chose Beachside Hotel as the site for our destination wedding. Our "fairy tale" wedding came true. We will have many years of wonderful, beautiful memories to share with our friends and family. You played an integral part in making that dream come true."

    Kristen & Greg

  • Hi Carina. Thank you for the attachment. And thank you so very much again for the wonderful job with our wedding. Everything was just as we'd hoped it would be -- beautiful setting, private, beautifully set up and decorated, and excellent service from the wait staff. It really was perfect. Thank you for the job you did to coordinate with the vendors - both Sue Hyde and Gail for photography were fantastic to work with, and we loved the cake and flowers too. We would love to visit Beachside again in the future for an anniversary. Everyone did a great job to make it a great event and a great stay."

    Mandy and Cedric

  • Carina, We just wanted to thank you for helping us have an absolutely beautiful wedding! Everything turned out perfect and all of our guests had a wonderful time! We can not thank you enough for making such a memorable day so wonderful for us!"

    Stacy and Rob

  • Good morning Carina! Just wanted to say thank you so much for everything!!! Your card, the champagne and clean bed was very thoughtful. You really are amazing and did above and beyond! Everyone had a great time and the food was perfect. Please give my compliments to the chef if you get a chance. My friend who is a chef was very impressed with the food. Good luck with your next wedding today. Muchas muchas gracias para todo y nos vemos pronto!"

    Song & Mike

  • Carina, I wanted to thank you for making my wedding day PERFECT! The food was wonderful, your staff was incredible, everything was so organized. I wouldn't have changed a thing. If you ever need to use me as a referral for a future client, I would be happy to sing your praises. I would also like to send a letter to your General Manager, if you could forward me the name, I would appreciate it."

    Thanks again for all of your help,

  • Hello, I hope everything is going well I would just like to thank you for all the help with my wedding I could have not done it without you. I would also like to thank the staff they were all such a big help and made us feel very comfortable. We had a wonderful time there I really love key west, we plan on returning for or first year anniversary next year and I hope to see you when I get there."

    Thank You, Love.

  • We were at the Beachside for my daughter's wedding and could not have said enough good things about the hotel and especially the staff. Everyone, including the maintenance and housekeepers went out of their way to make us feel special. They were polite, helpful and friendly. In particular, Angela Davila was incredible with all the assistance she gave via internet and phone prior to our arrival, and once there she continued to respond to our needs and concerns surrounding the wadding, cocktail hour and dinner and preparations before. John Mott in catering/food was just as hospitable and Roman at the front desk was always professional, courteous and helpful. There were several others just as nice, and I wish I had made a list of all their names. We never once had an issue with a staff member. The food was incredible-better than any restaurant we dined at during our stay. I was there in a one bedroom suite with my daughter beginning on 8/15, then when the rest of my family arrived, I had a three bedroom suite, and I had a two bedroom suite for some of our guests. Several other friends and relatives had rooms or suites there and all I heard were positive comments. It was a great experience."


  • Thank you for making our dream wedding a reality!"

    Jennifer and Travis

  • I just got married at the Beachside on June 2nd, and can’t say enough good things about it! The hotel property and all of the rooms are just gorgeous! Our stay was perfect. I’ve read a couple bad reviews talking about the property not being pretty, etc and I am convinced whoever wrote them had the hotel confused with another property. Everything about the hotel, down to the artwork on the walls was absolutely beautiful. The rooms were also big with very nice bathrooms. I’ve stayed at other resorts in Key West and they just don’t compare. The staff was great! Everyone was so helpful and friendly. Joe, the concierge was great. Also, I can’t say enough about Carina, our wedding coordinator. When we decided we wanted to get married we decided we wanted to get married right away, and only gave ourselves about 8 weeks to plan the wedding. We couldn’t have done it without her, and even if we could I’m convinced it wouldn’t have turned out so perfect if it wasn’t for her. She always got back to us right away and called frequently to remind us of anteing we were forgetting or just to make sure we were okay with everything. She also gave us great advice on anything we need her input on. Going down I wasn’t sure what to expect with the hotel, so I booked our honeymoon at another property- I really regretted doing that. I would have loved to stay at the Beachside the whole trip."


  • All I can tell you is this place was wonderful! My husband and I just got married at Beachside over Memorial weekend. I would recommend it for anyone. Small or big wedding they are very helpful with anything you may want or need. They even left a special surprise for us in our room on our wedding night. Everything in this place is amazing inside and out. If all you did was stay at the resort for your trip it would be a vacation in itself. They have shuttles that leave every hour to get you to Old Town Key West and pick you up 20 minutes after the hour to bring you back. A wonderful pool and hot tub, and very nice bar area outside by the pool where you can even order food. I really cannot say enough good things about this place. I actually miss the bed because it was so comfortable. We will be back for sure! You will love everyone who works there because they are so friendly. They will do anything possible to make you feel like you are so important to them. Shout out to all of our friends at Beachside: Carina, David, Warren, Patrick and Billy- you are all great!"


  • Carina, we want to thank you for all of your help with our wedding! Without you, I would not have run so beautiful and smoothly. The staff at Beachside that helped out at our reception was fantastic and we want to thank them also! Because of you, we will recommend Beachside to everyone we know who is visiting Key West in the future!"

    Thanks again!

  • Carina. Wow it was more perfect than I could have ever imagined and I know that would never happened without your help, you were amazing from beginning to end. We love you."

    Thank you!

  • Carina, Thank you for all of your help! I don’t know how we would make our wedding possible without your help. It was beautiful! I had a lot of fun planning it and coming up with different ‘Surprises’."


  • Carina. Thank you so much for making our day so special, everything was perfect. Thanks to your efforts. We appreciate your many phone calls and e-mails that were always pleasant. You stayed calm which helped us to stay calm. Everyone in our party could not say enough about Beachside and yourself. The week and the wedding were perfect!"

    Thank you,

  • Carina, you have gone above and beyond. We truly appreciate all of your hard work to make out day so wonderful."

    Jill and Bob

  • Dear Carina. There are not enough words to express how helpful and attentive you were to the details of our wedding. It was with your help that our day was PERFECT!! When we look back on our day we will always think of you."

    With Love,
    Michael & Meredith

  • Dear Carina, we just wanted to thank you so much for everything! The wedding could not have been better. The strawberries and champagne were such a wonderful surprise. You and every single staff member at Beachside are amazing. We will be back to visit. Please thank everyone for us."
