Mariner's Resort Key Largo

Recommended Posts

Hi all BDW brides,

Wanted to share my experience with Mariner's Resort in Key Largo. My FI and I loved the well-maintained grounds and private feel. The gorgeous townhomes and villas sealed the deal for us. We put down our deposit a little bit over a year before our wedding date. We even printed our STDs. Then three weeks later, our WC calls us and says that all events at the resort our being cancelled because of "changes in management and [they] couldn't ensure the quality of any of the weddings." I was heartbroken...selecting the site for us meant that everything else could fall into place...and they couldn't get their act together in a year? They didn't even refund our deposit until my FI disputed them with the credit card company. So, brides beware...Mariner's is lovely, but they have not got their act together.

That is so unfortunate. Coincidentally, I went to a wedding that was held there on April 10. The grounds were beautiful and so was the ceremony. The biggest gripe I along with the rest of the guests had with them is that there customer service sucks.

That's appalling! I'm so sorry! Are you looking for a new place to have your wedding in the upper Keys? I have heard that the Key Largo Grande Resort & Beach Club and the Marriott Key Largo Bay Resort are both very good. Or if you're willing to consider a venue a bit further south in Islamorada, here are some locations you may want to look at (locations our caterer has worked with): http://www.islamoradaweddings.com/we...locations.html. You may also want to look at the Islander Resort and Cheeca Lodge.

 

Best of luck to you with your planning, and again, I'm so sorry you've had to deal with this.

Hey inanna,

Honestly, we must've hit every Keys venue during our site visit, and each had its pros and cons. Key Largo Grande Resort was nice, but the packages weren't too appealing. Little Palm Island was one of our favorites, but it's adults only and that just wasn't an option. Cheeca Lodge was just gorgeous, but the site fee alone blew our budget!

So, we've actually ruled the Keys out entirely for our DW...too much heartbreak :-(

We're looking at the Mayan Riviera since the Keys doesn't really have any beaches and our money goes a lot further there.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
