There are not enough words to say how amazing Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa is! Our wedding last month was absolutely beautiful. We had our ceremony on Cove Beach, Cocktail Hour on the Veranda, and the Reception/Dinner in the Island Ballroom. The flow from area to area... Read More was spot on and everything was handled so professionally. As the bride I never had to lift a finger to do anything the day of. Courtney Kraft and her awesome team handled everything! They set up the areas with any decorations I brought them and they worked with our vendors Seaside Strings and LadyCakes directly. If something changed last minute Courtney and her team handled it without ever really having to get me or the groom involved. The resort is top notch and the customer service is fantastic! The food is also amazing! Our destination wedding was a hit with our guest because of the Resort and the amazing people that work there. We have never been treated so nicely and been cared for so much in our lives then at this resort. Highly recommend!

I absolutely loved having my wedding here. It was a destination, and Anne Marie (wedding coordinator) could not have been more helpful. She was very responsive and helpful prior to the wedding, and could not have made it easier on me the week we were there. The hotel in... Read More general is amazing. It went above and beyond my expectations. Everyone goes out of their way to be accommodating. Everyone had such a fabulous time, and I did not hear any complaints. And OMG the food was amazing! I had multiple people tell me it was the best wedding food they've ever had. The only thing, is request to have everyone in your group in the main tower. There are different towers, and some people got another tower. I highly recommend having your wedding here.

Our daughter's wedding at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort and Spa was fabulous. From our first meeting with wedding coordinator, Laura Lease to the breakfast buffet the morning after the wedding - everything was exceptional. I can't commend Laura Lease enough. She...

We recently held our wedding at Sanibel Harbour. The views and scenery were absolutely wonderful! Laura, our wedding coordinator was great. She was so helpful and easy to contact (which was important for us because we don't live in Florida!) I wouldn't have changed a thing.

The Sanibel Harbour Resort was going through a lot of change when I originally booked my wedding date. Little did I know I'd go through an acquisition and two wedding coordinators when I picked this beautiful resort for my big day. I was nervous about day-of logistics,... Read More catering, rooms for my guests and customer service. I was pleasantly surprised after a few hiccups throughout planning how the new Sanibel Harbour Marriott took care of me. Being in the event planning industry, the few months leading up to the day, my wedding coordinator was fabulous. She was diligent, kept me on track with my deadlines and offered numerous suggestions on how to keep me within budget & still host a fabulous reception. I received nothing but wonderful comments from my guests from the moment they stepped foot at the resort. I have a lot of seasoned travelers in my group and some who are very tough to please – they even went above and beyond to give SHM praise. Thanks again for everything! Most of all thank you for making our one and only day very memorable.
