Amazing. We had our wedding October 28th there and all I can say is it exceeded every expectation I and my groom had. Elaine is the event manager and is by far the best in the business. She handled everything for our special day and made sure it all went smoothly. She is... Read More professional, kind, organized and makes sure you have the best day for both you and your guests. The venue is stunning. We loved the upstairs room for our reception and were stunned at how beautiful it was all done up. The food is off the charts. We heard nothing but compliments on the appetizers, especially the lobster rolls and bakes brie. The dinner was great and we heard from many it was the best baked stuffed shrimp. Filets were cooked to order.... There isn't one thing that we didn't LOVE about this place

We had our wedding on 8/19/17. We worked with Anna who is THE BEST. She went above and beyond for everything and for every one of our requests. She was was very responsive, answered every question we had, was patient, knowledgeable, and also very personable and fun, and by the... Read More end of our wedding, felt like part of our family. (We had a few interactions throughout the planning with Elaine, who was quite rude and unprofessional towards us. Very glad we did not work with her.). We came down to the venue several times to view it (with our florist, with our families, etc.) and Anna welcomed us every time, even if it was last minute. Anna worked very well with all of our vendors, including our wedding planner (we got a month-of planner). VENUE: we had the downstairs ballroom, which was spacious, well decorated with hues of golds, neutrals and creams, which is nice and celebratory for a wedding. We had 135 guests. We placed the DJ booth at the mirror end and our sweetheart table on the opposite end near the curtains. We closed off the curtains during the reception and had the space next to the windows between the curtains as a lounge area with high and low tops. This is where we had our family photos done, and our ketubah signing before the wedding. CEREMONY: Our ceremony was outside on the lawn during the sunset, which is an OUTSTANDING view - stunning piece of property - brides/photographers, you will NOT be disappointed with the photo opps during sunset! The main drawback is that you can see the parking lot and cars during your vows , and there is no privacy between when the bride walks out of the resort to walk down the aisle, which is kind of a long walk, so I had my florist bring in tall hedges so that my guests wouldn't see me taking the walk from the resort to the ceremony site. This lack of privacy between the ceremony site and the parking lot is why I gave Atlantic Resort 4/5 stars. We had a Jewish wedding so our florist used the pergola as our huppah and decorated it, which was nice to not have to bring in our own huppah. COCKTAIL HOUR: was held outside on the lawn, and the hedges that we brought in made a great photo backdrop. Unfortunately, we didn't get to experience much of the cocktail hour because we were taking photos during the beautiful sunset, but all of our guests were raving about the food. (We got Package 4 - the full package). RECEPTION: we had the option of going until 12:30 am (for an additional fee, which was totally worth it) which is hard to find in a wedding venue in RI or MA. Afterwards, we moved to the bar and had a few drinks there, although it does close early (1 am). The only change I would have made in our decor in the ballroom is I would have done lighting because I felt like it was too bright in the ballroom. FOOD: We had a tasting of the food months before our wedding and everything we tried was delicious. The food at the wedding was outstanding, and all of our guests were very satisfied (we had a big Russian Jewish wedding with a lot of picky eaters). BRUNCH: we hosted a next-day brunch, and Anna was very amenable to us using the patio at the restaurant. We had about 100 people at brunch and it was a perfect space, and also reasonably priced for brunch (we called around to other places in Newport/Middletown, and brunch at the Atlantic Resort was the best value and still a nice space). RESTAURANT: Food is very good, service was poor. Outdoor bar is great. BRIDAL SUITE: large enough for bridal party

I don't think I could possibly say enough wonderful things about this venue, or the people that have brought it to life. I've been to a lot of weddings, and perhaps I'm a tad biased, but our wedding surpassed every dream I had for it. I had to pinch myself throughout the... Read More reception to know that it was real! A brand new venue with amazing food, views, and beautiful decor, with a team of wedding coordinators that help you and run the event too! You won't find that anywhere else for this price! First off, the people- Elaine, Kirby, and Anna are seasoned, professional wedding planners who brought every vision we had to life. They became our friends during this process, and genuinely had our best interests in mind. They were honest and candid with what they felt that guests would find important, and what was just going to be a waste of $ (unlike other venues that would love to just squeeze every penny from you... they GENUINELY had our best interests in mind). Elaine in particular is just fantastic to work with, and is so experienced and kind. She would even send me messages of encouragement leading up to the wedding- like a good friend would do � The food is spectacular... I've been fortunate enough to travel and eat at some amazing restaurants in my life, and this was the most delicious and well prepared meal I've ever enjoyed at any wedding. It was something you'd expect from a 5 star restaurant! Huge pieces of filet and large lobster tails, all beautifully presented and served hot. All meals were out within 10 minutes of dinner service beginning, and one of the things I saw the most pictures of, were guests taking pictures of their CLEAN PLATES!!! The appetizers and cocktail hour were also like nothing I've ever seen... forget your typical cheese and cracker platter with a few carrot sticks thrown in- the charcuterie they put out had at least 6 or 7 different cheeses (like baked Brie... wow), at least 4 different smoked meats (prosciutto, mortadella, etc.), and countless exotic fruits and vegetables. This was a feast on its own! The passed appetizers were creative, hot, and delicious... clam cakes with shooters of clam chowder, lamb "lollipops," mini "blt's," and mini cups of Mac and cheese (our favorite, and one of those special requests that they made happen for us!) Then, as if this wasn't enough, the bar was incredible, and the bar manager extremely talented... the signature drinks were even better than when we sampled them at home, and everyone complimented how delicious every drink came out. The beauty of the venue and its location is obvious, but perhaps the best part of all of this is the value you receive for your money. Multiple people have told me it was the best wedding they've ever attended, and probably think it cost a fortune, being in Newport and right on the water. Honestly, this venue is comprised of a group of people that don't believe in nickel-and-diming you... no stupid hidden fees, no surprises... you have a generous timeline in which you can change your guest count for last minute issues, and the pricing is extremely fair and MUCH more reasonable than anywhere else in the area (do your homework for other nearby venues, and you'll see what I mean). In summary, if you want to get married in Newport, don't waste your time looking elsewhere besides this venue. You're going to pay so much more for so much less, and miss out on the perfect location. And three amazing people who love to help you make it all happen �

Where else could I find the most perfect wedding location? The convenience of the Atlantic Resort is next to none. The resort has everything you could need for a special occasion such is a wedding.

My husband and I just had our wedding at the Atlantic Resort this past weekend and I couldn't have been more thrilled. For us, guest experience was the #1 most important criteria for our day, and our guests were RAVING. The food was excellent, staff amazing and timing on point.... Read More People kept telling us our wedding was an 11/10, even my husbands German aunt who is extremely difficult to please and tells it like it is. Dinner was on time which I've come to realize is not common at the weddings we've attended. Elaine is amazing and runs a tight ship - she was kind, organized and always upfront and transparent with everything. You can tell that she has seen it all and knows exactly what to recommend so the flow of the day works. Value wise what I loved about Atlantic Resort was that everything is included and clear. I'm an event planner in my 9-5 so I used an excel budget tracker that I use daily to compare total costs, and once I started adding in random costs at other venues we looked at (cost to have ceremony on site, cake cutting fees etc) we realized that the per person cost was actually a lot higher when it appeared to be less on the surface. Everything is included in the per person cost at Atlantic Resort so once you add tax and gratuity, you get your number and can easily figure out your total venue cost with # of guests. Aesthetics of a place are also very important to me and the ballroom is so beautiful and elegant (golds and whites) with hardwoods. I toured a lot of venues that had older carpeting etc and my color palate (gold, rose gold, and greens) worked so well in this bright stunning space. I was pretty crazy about the decor we brought and had a vision in my head of how i wanted everything to look and the way it was set up was perfect and elegant. If you're looking for a venue in the Newport area, I would highly recommend Atlantic Resort we had an incredible day and I can't stop smiling.
