To all the brides out there, please book your wedding at B Ocean hotel only if you want superb service, excellent food, and a view to die for. From the Catering Manager Arthur Sands, to the Sales Manager Judy Harstein everything was done in perfection and class. I recently wed at the B Ocean hotel in August 2013, my guest loved the hotel setting and the services that they provided my ceremony and reception was organized and the evening flowed perfectly. Working with Arthur and Judy was one of the easiest relationships to have during my wedding process. They made me and my family and friends feel comfortable and at home. I will recommend this hotel to anyone who is truly ready to have a classy and absolutely good time at their wedding. You are definitely in good hands with the venue, they took care of all of my needs and request and was always professional. My husband and I are officially going back to B Ocean Hotel every year.

We recently got married at B Ocean Hotel and we had an amazing experience and saw our Dream Wedding come to Life.
Arthur Sands really is a pleasure to work with, he is personable and he pays attention to every single detail and takes his job seriously and works diligently and delivered to our needs. He really is a great asset to B Ocean Hotel.
Arthur and his wonderful team exceeded all of our expectations we'd hoped for. He went the extra mile to help us & make us feel comfortable and put our minds at ease, we didn't worry about a thing before or on the day of our wedding they provided the best service ever !!
He also recommended Wedding vendors who we ran with and we were highly impressed with every single vendor that we worked with and my husband & I are very grateful to Arthur.
The General Manager Eduardo Fernandez and the his entire staff were very professional and worked hand in hand with all our wedding vendors. They put in so much hard work and effort into our wedding and we are so happy and can not thank them enough, they were always warm and helpful.
Our family and friends who stayed at the hotel were highly impressed and loved their bedrooms with the most spectacular views of the ocean and the high level of staff service. Thank you for making our guests and family feel so comfortable.
Everyone who attended our wedding had a fun time and were full of compliments for the venue. The Horizon Ballroom, oh my gosh had the most stunning floor to ceiling views of the Ocean, wow !! Panache Style, Bobby created an ambience filled with love, romance, class and glitz.
Our ceremony was hosted on The Breeze Terrace and Bobby created simple elegance with a beautiful chandelier Hupa. It was so romantic and I was the happiest bride ever !!
The catering for our cocktail hour and our reception was appreciated by all our guests the B Ocean Menu/Buffet was so delicious and satisfied our taste buds fully. Our Wedding planner Joni Scalzo made sure my husband & I ate lol !! The presentation of the food and beverage was excellent, we were very happy.
The morning after our wedding we had brunch at Saia with our family and friends and again it was so perfect, great food, service and a very relaxed atmosphere.
The entire experience was unforgettable & memorable and everything and more than we had hoped for.
I highly recommend Arthur and his team at The B Ocean Hotel, Fort Lauderdale the venue was perfect for our wedding and I am sure you will also love it here.
Honestly, make it your first choice in Fort Lauderdale you will not regret it !! We loved it and we will treasure our very special day at B Ocean Hotel for giving us our Dream Wedding day.
Thank you, thank you so very much Arthur, Eduardo and B Ocean. We will be back for dinner at Saia for your most delicious Sushi and of course to say hi to you all !!

My wedding at the B Ocean was absolutely beautiful. Although they offer packages for the ceremony and reception, I had only my reception there. And I can't even describe how beautiful it was! The hotel has a sleek and modern look, which I loved. We had our cocktail hour and reception in different rooms on the penthouse floor, and both rooms had floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of the ocean on one side and the city on the other. It was breathtaking.
We worked with Noha, who was very responsive and professional. On the day of, William went above and beyond to make sure that everything was going perfectly.
The food was delicious; honestly, I expected it to be just okay. It was great at the tasting, but that is when the chef is making it specially for you (and for you to love). But it was just as good, if not better, the night of, which really impressed me. We had a chicken dish, and even days later, several of our guests continued to comment how good it was.
I gave only four stars for flexibility because the B Ocean was not very flexible with prices. They will give you an array of add-ons, and they will work with you when they can, but they were not willing to do much negotiation (it's probably a sales tactic, but I noticed that other venues were ready to slash the price for this or throw in that for free). They are also not flexible with meals--they must know each meal in advance, so if you ordered 90 steak dinners and 50 chicken dinners, but on the day of, 10 guests wanted to swap their meal, they would not be able to accommodate that.
I thought the value was excellent, and they also gave us a great rate for our room block.
Overall, though, I cannot rave enough about my experience there the night of my wedding. Everything went so smoothly: meals were delivered quickly and delivered warm; drinks were served quickly; the staff seemed to bend over backwards to make sure our guests were enjoying themselves. And, did I mention, the views are breathtaking?!
