This place is amazing! Friendly people and great resort! We got married down the beach from the sirata but all 60 of our guests stayed here and they were so helpful! We will definitely go back for vacations!
Melanie Reese was so amazing to work with. She was very professional and was there for every question that I needed answered. I loved having my wedding here at Sirata Beach Resort. Everything went smoothly on my wedding day, thanks to their dedicated staff.
I cannot express how I felt for the last year leading up to this day. Our budget was exceptionally under an average priced wedding, but I didn't want anything that showed that. I was a nervous wreck hoping everything would come together and hoping nothing would look incomplete or tacky. Kelli helped me every step of the way, helping guide me to the priorities. Even if my question was not related to the venue she was more than helpful. She is responsible for my wedding day turning out so perfect and exceeded all of my expectations. As soon as I saw everything the day of the wedding I was just in awe at how beautifully she pulled everything together.
We knew we wanted casual beach side wedding but with more of a formal reception. It was exactly what we got. Guests are still talking about our day. We keep hearing about how beautiful the ceremony was and there were hardly any decorations (took place in the sand). They LOVED the food. It was 10 times better the day of the wedding than it was at the tasting. The Royal Palm Ball Room was absolutely breath taking (I recommend amber uplighting thanks to Kelli!)
Honestly, best day of my life.
Thank you Sirata and THANK YOU KELLI!!!! :) :) :) xoxoxo
Our wedding was at a small hotel neighboring The Sirata, but could not accommodate all of my out of town guests. The Sirata was great and we all had so much fun! We worked with Deborah Probst to secure the best rate for our guests and everything went smoothly. They even delivered all of our guest bags for us. We actually had so much fun, a small group of us decided that we will be making an annual trip to The Sirata for a weekend reunion.
Having our wedding at the Sirata Beach resort was the best decision that we made for our wedding day! It was a beautiful site that offered so many services in one location. We had our wedding ceremony on their beach, followed by our wedding reception in their Mediterranean ballroom on the second floor. The Sirata also catered our wedding, and the food was the most amazing part. We had a delicious buffet that had more food than we could even try to eat. It was all great. In fact, our guests couldn't stop talking about how wonderful the food was! We also stayed at this resort for our wedding weekend, and the accommodations were wonderful! We stayed in one of their suites and it was AMAZING. It was huge and we were able to have all my girlfriends and family get ready in it. We worked with Melanie as our wedding coordinator and she was very professional and responsive to our emails. We even met with her 3-4 times before our big day, along with constant emails and phone calls to make sure everything was perfect. She made sure our day went off without a hitch! She paid very close attention to details and helped handle all of our outside vendors. We would definitely recommend the Sirata to someone looking for a beautiful beach wedding, with onsite usage of a ceremony site, as well as hotel accommodations. It was the perfect choice for us and we cannot wait to go back!
Everything about the Sirata from out initial visit until the end of our honeymoon there was the best! Melanie took us through out initial visit and guided us through the entire planning process. The day of the wedding due to some bad weather we had a last minute change of location for the ceremony and reception. Although we had to move everything inside, Melanie and Jennifer made sure that all of our needs were met. Everything turned out better than expected! They went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy with the changes that had to be met. They even offered to set up the archway on the beach another day if we were unable to get pictures outside.
All of our guests stayed at the Sirata with us an had a great visit. The accommodations were great and there was so much for everyone to do without ever having to leave.
We had our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception at the Sirata. Let me start by saying this was undoubtedly the best decision we made for our wedding. The grounds our beautiful and the 8th floor ballroom where we had our reception has the most amazing views!! Melanie was the coordinator we worked with and through the whole process she was very responsive, courteous, attentive and friendly. Our wedding went off without a hitch thanks to all the staff at the Sirata who paid so much attention to each detail, ensuring our day was perfect! The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was hands down the best food I have ever had at a wedding (and I’m not just saying that because it was our wedding) Everything was absolutely delicious and done perfectly! We also had several guests stay at the hotel, including ourselves, and it was a gorgeous place! Everyone had such a great time and didn’t want to leave when it was over I would highly recommend
the Sirata as a place to hold your wedding.
We had our beach wedding at the Sirata Beach Resort in St. Pete Beach, FL. Melanie, the event coordinator/catering manager at the Sirata was an absolute pleasure to work with. She made the whole planning process as easy and stress free as possible. With the many options for wedding ceremonies and receptions, Melanie helped us find the perfect fit. It was exactly what we were looking for.
Melanie was there for the entire event, and made sure that everything went timely and smoothly from the ceremony on the beach, to cocktail hour in the Grotto, to the reception in the Royal Palm Ballroom. (We were incredibly impressed with her, to say the least.)
All of the staff was very friendly and professional. The food at the reception was absolutely delicious. (We received a lot of compliments/praise from our guests about how great the food was.)
The Royal Palm Ballroom is gorgeous, there are panoramic windows all the way around with amazing sites of the Gulf/Bay and has a breathtaking view of the beach at sunset.
All in all, we had the perfect day. It was literally flawless and we couldn't be happier. (As the Bride, I can honestly say that if I were to do it all over again, I wouldn’t change a single thing.) The Sirata is a beautiful beach wedding venue, and we highly recommend it to any couple looking for a venue.
Thank You to Melanie and the Sirata staff for giving us the most amazing, unforgettable day of our lives.
We had our wedding ceremony, cocktail reception, and dinner reception at the Sirata. It was a wonderful event and we had great weather! Melanie served as our day-of coordinator and did a great job. She's very friendly, nice, and knows her stuff. The venue was also very laid back and relaxing for our guests, especially the great hammocks they have hanging around the property. We were surprised to learn though, as we planned our wedding, that an individual meal with 4 hours of drinks can cost approximately $100 after taxes and tips are included, since the latter are a required 29% of total cost. This is after we received a 10% discount. We went with Sirata because we compared it to the various venues in the area and this was the best price we could find.
At Sirata, you can get married on one of their two decks, or on the sand. We opted for the bigger deck for a party of 160 people and it worked out really well. Overall, it was a very positive experience and the staff were friendly and attentive.
The Sirata Beach Resort was the best place to have our wedding! My guest were almost all out of town so I needed a place were everyone could stay and not have to drive anywhere. The Sirata was perfect. We wanted a beach wedding to we're we could just walk right to our ceremony then into the Palm Pavilion was this best. My guest all said the food was the best so fresh and just loved it. I could not had picked a better place to have my Beautiful wedding thank you Melanie for making everything perfect. Girls check this place out!
The Sirata was a wonderful place to have our wedding. Most of the wedding planning via email, since my husband and I lived out of the state. Melanie was super helpful and nice! she answered all of our questions and would check in with us throughout our planning process to make sure everything was going smoothly. We got married on the North Breezeway deck and the venue was gorgeous! it was just perfect. We had our reception in the Royal Palm room. The views of the gulf and the bay are amazing. It was a perfect sized room for our guests. The food was AMAZING! People still keep on telling me how good the food was. (we ordered the caribbean delight buffet). There was so much delicious food...it was great! Thank you so much!
We had our cocktail hour and reception at the Sirata two weekends ago and we could not have been more thrilled with how it went! We worked with Kelli Love who is the absolute best we could have ever hoped for! She made sure that everything at the Sirata was how we wanted it to be in a way that made us feel totally relaxed, even while planning a wedding to take place in Florida from New York. Our guests absolutely loved the resort during their stay. We used the Royal Palm Ballroom for the reception which was a total success. Everyone at the Sirata was so accommodating with everything from the decorating to menu restrictions to special planning requests along the way. We can't thank them or recommend them enough!!
I can't say enough good things about our experience at Sirata Beach Resort for our wedding week! Melanie was an absolute pleasure to work with and really allowed us to enjoy our day without worrying about the details. Melanie and the banquet staff, Jennifer and Chris, had everything under control. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and all of our guests had a fantastic time! After the wedding we spent another five days just relaxing at the resort. By far, Sirata is our favorite beach resort in St. Pete Beach and possibly anywhere!
Wonderful resort, very clean, excellant food, beautiful beaches and sand, wedding coordinator was wonderful to work with... nothing but great things to say! all of my guests want to go back there on their own for vacations:) LOVED the Sirata!!!
All I can say is AWESOME!!!
We selected the Sirata as our destination wedding venue from our lovely home in Atlanta from the internet...after discussions with our Catering Manager Kelli Love we decided to go with the Sirata...we have no complaints. We arrived on a Wednesday and was greeted by Kelli and able to tour the locations for the ceremony and the reception, seeing everything for the first time and we were very pleased. We had our rehearsal, or as I called it meet & greet at the rum runner pool on the property and working with Caroline to set that up was so easy...almost too easy..Just everything was perfect! The day of our wedding Kelli was amazing helping our wedding coordinator with all last minute details and just her calming spirit is great for any bride! The resort is awesome...the beach location for the ceremony was great, security made sure no one just came walking though the middle of our ceremony...everyone was directed to the ballroom. Our names were in lights (or on the tv screens) to tell everyone where the event was. Rooms were great....Sirata did their best to ensure that all of our guests were close to each other and that was another great thing!!! I could go on...but for someone booking this resort site unseen I'm beyond pleased!!!
Kelly was my wedding coordinator at SIrata and she was amazing! Being from Ohio and not being able to be there all the time was not a problem because she was very quick to answer any questions I had about my wedding day and very organized. The food at the venue was also amazing. All my guest and vendors loved it! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone wanting a beach wedding.
My husband and I recently renewed our wedding vow for our 25th anniversary at the Sirata. It was an amazing event. Planning a destination event can be very challenging, however this was not the case. The day of the event everything went so smoothly and everyone from the Sirata was awesome! We had a wonderful time and are so glad we picked this site.
We were very happy with our wedding at the Sirata. We did a beach ceremony and indoor reception in the Royal Palm Room. We worked with Kelli Love and she was great to work with, super helpful. We had some issues here and there but nothing major and nothing that was not resolved in a timely fashion. We had great reviews on the food from our guests. The Sirata has beautiful grounds so everyone had a great weekend on the beach. We would definitely recommend the Sirata for your ceremony/reception venue.
We initially selected the Sirata as a potential venue because they could accommodate up to 250 guests (we ended up with 230). We also felt that their prices were fair when compared to other venues that hosted lovely backdrops for our wedding. However, it was our first meeting with the catering manager, Melanie Reese, that sold me, my husband and our families on this venue. Just as she was at our initial tour of the resort, for the entire year of working together planning this event, Melanie was enthusiastic, funny, incredibly responsive, full of helpful suggestions, and an absolute pleasure to work with. When it came time for our big day, the entire Sirata staff provided an organized, efficient, and truly incredible experience. It must be their magic touch because our entire event went off without a hitch! We really appreciate everyone's hard work and the amazingly delicious food - our guests are still talking about how fantastic their meals were (and the open bar)!! Oh, and our ceremony, reception and sunset pictures came out beautifully!
