Beautiful place to have a wedding. Really nice and love having space for all of the guest!
The Pink Shell was the most amazing wedding ceremony and reception venue I could have chosen. The ceremony (on the beach) looked amazing, the reception site (Banyan Grove, poolside) looked amazing and Dony made sure that it all ran smoothly. The catering staff were awesome, they were so nice and helpful. The food was delicious. Looking back I would not have changed a single thing.
We got married on May 5th at the Pink Shell and it was PERFECT. We had the pleasure to work with Dony and she helped us through the entire time of planning as well as the event itself. She made our dreams come true and did everything we asked her and more. The hotel itself was beautiful, the food was amazing, the ceremony at the beach was breathtaking, and the Captiva Ballroom was just incredible. We had the most amazing day of our lives and this was mostly because of Dony and the Pink Shell Beach Resort! I would do it all over and in the exact same way (maybe only make it last longer because the time flew by!)
We loved the hotel and the area! It was great to relax and enjoy the weather and the hotel. We look forward to returning in the future!
Amazing wedding the exceeded my expectations. Dony was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. The day of, she was very organized and took all the stress off of me. All we had to do is provide the decorations, party favors, etc. we wanted and she set everything out. The bartenders and servers were on top of everyone and catered very well to myself and husband. Our drinks were always filled and they made sure our evening was perfect and stress free. The venue was beautiful and we could not have asked for a better day!
My husband and I were married in December 2011 at the Pink Shell Beach Resort and Spa. We would highly recommend this venue to brides and grooms who are looking for a fairytale beach wedding that they will never forget . The Pink Shell offers something for everyone, which makes this a no brainer for destination wedding such as ours.
When my husband and I got engaged in August of 2010 we had already shared our hopes and dreams of getting married on a white sandy beach with all of our loved ones there to watch. My husband and I live in Omaha, Ne now which is landlocked and we knew we’d better begin searching for our sandy beach elsewhere. Since my husband’s is from Miami and I am from Baltimore we began our search in Fort Myers.
Planning from afar immediately seemed like a challenge. After web surfing and numerous calls and emails exchanged with not so responsive staff I was beginning to feel frustrated, that was until I started my communication with Dony at the Pink Shell. Dony is a dedicated professional who goes well above and beyond the job description to ensure that your wedding is everything you’ve ever dreamed of. From our initial email correspondence and phone conversations Dony was warm and responsive, she made me feel like I mattered and that the Pink Shell was interested in having my business. She made me feel like she had a genuine interest in helping my husband and I achieve our dream wedding.
Although planning from thousands of miles away, it was a breeze with Dony. She was always just a phone call away. Throughout the entire process she listened with intent and I could tell she understood my vision of having Cuban themed food and an elegant holiday backdrop. Additionally she truly has a gift for planning and an incredible eye for detail. She was always one step ahead of me and prompted me with thoughtful and guiding questions. When I arrived at the resort days before the wedding Dony was prepared and available. Her cool, calm, and collected nature put me at ease. She assisted us in taking care of last minute details such as printing out pictures that we forgot, seating arrangements, and gathering all the decorations into one area.
The day of the wedding moved like clockwork. Dony was up early setting up the perfect backdrop for our beach wedding. She pre-coordinated with all our vendors (all of which she recommended, and who were all incredible) and they all worked seamlessly with and around each other. Everyone was on time and they far exceeded my expectations. As I walked into the Captiva ballroom where our reception would be held I was moved to tears. With the decorations that we had provided Dony, she had transformed the ballroom into a magical and stunning venue that was full of warmth and love. Dony coordinated our entire day, every moment and every detail wouldn’t have been possible without her. We owe infinite thanks to the Pink Shell staff and especially to Dony for surpassing our expectations and for helping us have the most beautiful and memorable wedding day we could’ve imagined.
When you choose the Pink Shell you can rest assured that the dedicated staff will take care of your guests at the resort. You can count on your guests being entertained with activities at the resort that will please adults and children. You can also be sure that you will have the most beautiful serene and breathtaking backdrop. Finally, I can promise you that Dony will deliver a magical day that will exceed your expec
Pink Shell made my wedding perfect! Dony, the coordinator, was amazing. I planned the wedding from Chicago and had absolutely zero stress. She made the day go by perfect and I got to enjoy every moment of it. All 90 of my guest had a great time, loved the resort and all want to go back. There were only positive comments on how wonderful Pink Shell was!
Pink Shell Resort gives you everything in one spot. We had the Ceremony on the beach, cocktail hour in Banyan Grove, and the reception in the Lido Ballroom. Each one was just a short distance from one another so you didn't have to worry about your guests not knowing where to go. The wedding coordinator Maredith was wonderful, she really helps you in making your dream wedding come true. Everything was perfect. A special thanks to all the staff and bellmen for helping all of our guests and especially us. By the way every room has their own kitchenette and ocean view so your guests can have their own meals in a room that looks out onto the water. We can't wait to stay at the Pink Shell again!
Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and flawless, thanks to Dony Lubig!! She was a fabulous cordinator at the Pink Shell! The food was amazing and everything was perfect! Everyone had a wonderful time!
My husband and I are from IL and we flew down to Florida one time just to pick a venue and when we walked into the Pink Shell we knew that was it. Very friendly staff, good drinks and food and on the beach. It is very comfortable and great for couples or famlies. After deciding on the Pink Shell for our wedding it got even better. Dony was our wedding coordinator and she was awesome! Went above and beyond. Our wedding day was beautiful and more than I had ever imagined. It was truly an unforgettable day.
Everything about working with the Pink Shell was wonderful. Maredith was so helpful from our first visit last summer throughout the planning process and recommending vendors. Dony was amazing during our stay. She was on top of everything the entire stay. The food was some of the best food I've had and our guests raved about it. Everything about our wedding and stay was great. I would highly recommend the Pink Shell to anyone looking to get married in the Ft. Myers Beach area.
We are locals, so we knew about the Pink Shell prior to planning our wedding. What we didn't know was how unbelievably amazing they would be to work with. Dony and Maredeth are both incredible coordinators who look after every detail for you. Even though there were "hiccups" with weather and family illnesses, Dony reassured me every step of the way that thing would work out, and they did...PERFECTLY! They truly go above and beyond to make sure that not only the bride and groom, but the entire family and wedding attendees have a wonderful time. If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't get married anywhere else!
By the way, don't let the price of the food scare you, it is WELL worth it! Plus, we didn't have to spend money on decorating the place, it is so beautiful already!
We had our Wedding at the Pink Shell Beach Resort and could not have been happier. What an excellent decision. From meeting for the first time with Maredith to go over all of our options/budget untill we walked out of the ball room when our reception had reached the end...everything was fantastic :) All of the Staff at the Pink Shell were very friendly and courteous. I couldnt tell you how many times we heard "we are here for you, anything you need make sure to let us know, this is YOUR night" And that it was. Nothing short of incredible thanks to EVERYONE at the Pink Shell. I Cannot thank Maredith enough for all of her help coordinating everything from the start to finish. Everything the day of our wedding flowed...it was perfect...I didnt have to worry about any of the decorating, guests, making sure ceremony was set up and vendors were there etc all because of Maredith!! What a shining star!!! I would definitely recommend this resort to any couple looking to have the beach wedding/destination wedding of their dreams!! Again everything was incredible and we had so many guests tell us the whole day was just breathtaking and beautiful. I wish we could rewind and do the whole day over again ;) Thanks again Maredith and all of the Pink Shell's awesome staff!!!
From the moment my guests stepped into the resort the customer service was impeccable. They treated the Bride and Groom like King and Queen for the entire stay. The place was beautiful, fun atmosphere, well kept and just a relaxing place to bring our wedding guests and party. I couldn't have wanted any other way. The wedding coordinator for the Pink Shell, Dony Lubig, went above and beyond and I felt no stress with her taking care of everything and then some. Truly Amazing and there are not enough thank you's to her and the Pink Shell for making my wedding event a dream come true.
My wedding was February of 2010 and I could not have asked for more than what the Pink Shell provided. My ceremony was on the beach and was absolutely beautiful with the stair case that I was able to walk down for a grand entrance to the setup on the beach and the seating for my guests. The reception was held on the pool deck, and although it was a bit chilly the hotel provided heaters that completed the perfect night. The scenery was perfect and the food was the best I have ever had anywhere, never mind at a wedding. For serving so many people at once, the food was cooked perfect and was delicious. They thought of every detail, if I was to do my wedding over, It would still be at the Pink Shell, their service is well above average! They were amazing and created the perfect day for my husband and I.
Thank you Sarah. It was our pleasure to help you create the perfect wedding event. Thank you for sharing your experience with other brides.
