      My friend's were married there and didn't mention having any issues. I could find out the name of the coordinator if you are interested? Their wedding went very smoothly and was so so so so gorgeous! The gazebo is unbelieveable!

          My friend worked with the Marriott's WC named Laura. She's from the midwest and was living and working in St Thomas. Here's what she had to say:

          She (Laura) was AWESOME!! We e-mailed her a ton, and then set up a call to go over my many, many questions. We talked for over an hour with her. She was also awesome on-site, directing us and helping us with whatever we needed for the day. The only bump we had was our minister who had a root canal the day before and his pain meds weren't kicking in, so he was acting a little weird during the ceremony. We thought he was drunk. I emailed Laura after we returned to let her know about the weird situation and she called me directly after speaking with him to explain his situation. He hadn't wanted to cancel on us (despite the pain) because he knew we wouldn't be able to get another minister on such short notice. I thought her follow through with my discontentment was very thorough and professional.

            We've been working with Laura Jakubisyn for our group room booking at the Marriott. We're not having our wedding at the Marriott, but our guests are staying there. So far she's been great! I can PM you her email if you want it...

            April, another WC, lives next door to my future in-laws on St Thomas - they said she's really sweet! We're going down to St Thomas on the 8th and will likely meet both Laura and April if you want me to ask them anything!

            FYI - Laura is out of town Sep 13-23. :)

              Too funny that you "know" April.

              She is my wedding coordinator and is super sweet. Just seems very busy (but she is very responsive, so not a ding on her).

              We missed the gazebo (already booked I think?) and will be getting married on their private beach. It's man-made, so sand on top of rocks. But I think it will be secluded and more private.

              I started in late March for a November wedding- so a little over 6 months? Their responsiveness really has been fabulous.

              PM me if you have any other questions!

                April is my WC and has been so sweet so far! Of course, we haven't done a lot yet because we aren't getting married until Dec. 5th 2009... But she has been awesome so far!
