Perfect Beach Wedding posted 10/8/2013

The room was amazing, and we couldn't have asked for a better ceremony site on the boardwalk. Only downside, the view towards the alter is beautiful, but the view towards the bride walking down the aisle was of some construction equipment haha. I wouldn't have changed a thing though!

Beautiful Beach Wedding posted 8/17/2013

This was the perfect location for a beach wedding! The round room was perfect and such a blank canvas that you can do anything with it!! The views are spectacular from the beach wedding location to the reception room. The carousel was the biggest hit for kids and adults! The staff was very friendly and accommodating from the very beginning! Erik and Peggy were extremely helpful when it came to any questions including how to set everything up to maximize the space! We couldn’t have asked for a better location for our wedding!

Perfect Venue posted 8/12/2013

Everyone at Easton's beach was wonderful to work with, they were easy to get along with and helped me plan my perfect wedding. We used the Rotunda at Easton's Beach for our reception site and it had an absolutely breathtaking view of the ocean and sunset.

We had our wedding there recently, and it was perfect! Erik, Peggy, Beth, and John were all extremely helpful and accommodating. Another review mentioned the construction equipment. We had the same concern, and they allowed us to come down the beach from the side to avoid it. And the carousel was a huge hit! We could not have found a more perfect beach wedding venue. It rained up until about 2 hours before the wedding, but we weren't concerned because we knew if we had to have it inside, it was still a spectacular view.

The carousel adds a lot to the venue and the view cannot be beat. In general this venue was fantastic to work with but on the day of setting up was a bit of a mess because they had miss placed our table set-up and had forgotten 6 tables... Overall it is a fantastic value.

Fantastic Location! posted 10/27/2012

We had our wedding here in late September and everything went over perfectly. We had a beautiful sunset, 70 degree evening with no beach on-lookers to worry about. Our ceremony was outside and the backdrop of the ocean was a priceless picture.

Amazing posted 10/25/2012

When looking for place to hold my beachy, but classic wedding I fell in love with the simplicity of the Rotunda. It is right on the beach and offers in the sand ceremonies. You can hold cocktail hour on the deck overlooking the water and the reception area is great. It is not too big but has enough room for larger weddings. We had 80 people which filled up the room nicely. We added some color to the wall since the inside is very plain. I was very pleased!

I had my ceremony and reception here, and it was amazing. It rained the day of, so we were not able to get married on the beach, but the staff quickly set-up the arbor and chairs inside, which was still lovely. They were very helpful throughout the event, and I was not worried about things getting done. The rotunda is a bit bare, so I recommend uplighting which added a beautiful touch. Also, the carousel during cocktail hour was a huge hit. Before the wedding, Erik answered all of my questions promptly and in detail (and there were a lot of them.) They were also very accommodating when we wanted to visit the venue again and practice our dance. Overall, the Rotunda was a beautiful place to get married and have our reception, the staff was very nice and helpful, and I would definitely contact them again if I needed to host a large event.

My husband and I were extremely disappointed with the service from the rotunda staff the weekend of our wedding. For starters we had an agreement that we could bring our things in 11am the day before and store them in the Rotunda office and then leave them there for pick up after the wedding. When my husband arrived at 11am Friday the day before the wedding he was told by the Maintenance man that we could not store our things there. My husband told him about our agreement and he said that the manager was on vacation so there was nothing he could do about that. We were finally was able to convince him to let us store our things in the maintenance shed, but it should not have come to that. There was no need for the maintenance man to give him a hard time when we made arrangements with the manager before hand. This should have been communicated to him. At the end of the night we were faced with the same problem from the same less than professional maintenance man. He refused to let us store our things after the event and we had to have the caterers take it back for us. They told us before the wedding that this was something they could not do which is why I made the arrangements with the rotunda to store our things in advance. Luckily I was able to convince them to the night of the wedding otherwise what would I have done, carry everything back myself or enlist my guests to help?

The woman that was standing in for the manager the day of was very professional and helpful, please don't get me wrong there, however; it seems that she had no control over the unprofessional maintenance man.

We paid quite a bit of money for basically an empty room and tables, I expressed my concerns after the wedding in an email and did not even get the courtesy of a reply from the manager.

Newport Beach Wedding posted 9/30/2011 (modified 11/8/2011)

The Rotunda at Eastons beach is perfect if you are looking for an affordable venue in Newport plus its on the beach. The ballroom is all hardwood with white walls so it gives you the room to be creative and let your personality shine through on your wedding day. The only reasons I did not give it 5 stars is becasue the bathrooms are down stairs while the ballroom is upstairs(there is an elevator though) and downstairs is warehouse like. Otherwise it was great and the staff was awesome to work with!

Lovely Venue posted 11/28/2010

My daughter chose this as her wedding venue and I do not think there could have been a better choice. The ballroom was the perfect size and it had wonderful views of the ocean! Also, the carousel was a huge hit!

Perfect Location posted 11/9/2010

This venue was exactly what we were looking for. The price was the best we could find in Newport and the location was perfect. The open ballroom with the large decks and working carousel was exactly what we wanted for our elegantly casual beach wedding!

Beautiful location posted 10/28/2010

Eastons Beach Rotunda was a beautiful place to have our wedding! We loved the view of the ocean and the carousal. Renting was very easy and there was no hassle. The staff is great and very nice. The only complaint that I would say is there are no restrooms on the main floor upstairs and everyone has to go downstairs. There is an elevator and we knew this when we rented it but it was just a bit of a challenge for our older guests. Really everything was clean, working and great though!

The Rotunda was affordable and beautiful. I loved that we had use of the carousel, and were able to have the ceremony on the beach. Everyone there was SO helpful and we had an awesome experience. The only (small) complaint I had was the trash cans and other things that were not removed from the outside- they looked bad in some photos. The ballroom itself couldn't have been better!!!

It was right on the beach. Gorgeus view and great pictures. Lots of open space in the Rotunda.;The rehearsal the night before, the coordinator at the Rotunda was great. The night of our wedding, Susan was the coordinator and was terrible. She almost ruined mine and my husbands wedding. Awful woman.
