I just returned from my destination wedding at Casa Ybel. If I can give the resort 10 stars I would. First, the accommodations - outstanding with waterfront views for Villa's. Additionally, the rooms were so spacious that it was the perfect spot for family and guests to... Read More gather. It was extra special since all the rooms were together making it easy for all guests to continue mingling throughout the evening and for the entire weekend. The beach - beautiful where you can see the sunset on the water. The tent reception was elegant and convenient since no one had to drive anywhere. The white birch arch and flowers from Libby's were gorgeous. The food and service was off the charts! Most of my guests eat at the best restaurants in the country and the food was on par with them. I can not say enough good things and thanks to Amy S and Jessica........Casa Ybel is also within an hour from the airport making this destination wedding spot very viable. This is the place for a destination wedding!
