  • The views from this venue are amazing! Our wedding ended just after sunset, and we got the most amazing sunset shots on the pier! Pam was friendly, knowledgeable, and great at answering emails and setting up meetings with us. Our wedding had to be rescheduled due to Covid, and they were so accommodating and kind through everything. Jackie was there to oversee the reception on our wedding day, and she was so sweet and helpful. The tiki bar downstairs provides the alcohol, and Michelle was great to work with for setting it all up. Our bartender for our reception, Coco, was super sweet and made sure that everyone had drinks at all times. All of our guests were raving at how beautiful the venue was and how spectacular the view was, especially at sunset. We even saw dolphins on the intercoastal during our reception! The prices for venue rental and bar service were very reasonable, and everyone was so great to work with. Overall, we couldn’t have chosen a better venue for our reception. I ... Read more

  • Our reception at Beso was absolutely perfect. It was great working with Pam and everything turned out exactly as we'd hoped. We had 50 guests and the venue was the perfect size for our group. The guests loved the venue and the sunset views were amazing! We would definitely recommend Beso!

  • We chose Beso Del Sol for our 50th wedding anniversary party. Completely satisfied with every aspect of using this venue.! The room is beautiful with spectacular views that were captured in our pictures. Pam Dawson met with us to confirm floor plan, table layout, & every detail. She was open to all of our ideas. She promptly answered all questions by email. On day of party, Jackie was there to meet us early to guide us in decorating. She stayed all day to coordinate vendors. From the time party started, she was quietly everywhere! Her assistance was so appreciated. We happily recommend Beso Del Sol

  • My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed having our reception at Beso Del Sol. The waterfront location was fantastic. Our guests all commented on how amazing the sunset was from the glass window wall looking out over Caladesi Island, and our couple photos from the Beso dock where perfect. The hotel is a great value, and the venue rental was also reasonably priced. The venue can handle 100 people maximum, but we found 92-94 to be a maximum when considering guest comfort and table arrangement. We'd highly recommend Beso Del Sol!

  • Just had my weeeknt at Beso on Nov 17th and it was an amazing experience! We chose the venue because we wanted a place where all of our guests could stay and play all weekend long...and what better way to showcase our beautiful hometown than to stay right on the water in Dunedin?! So the hotel itself is great because they have multiple room options - some with two bedrooms and a full kitchen. We had about 15 out of town parties and it was great to be able to have everyone in one spot and all meet at Market 8 for drinks/appetizers. The venue itself is beautiful. Overlooking Caladesi Island, the view and sunset photo ops were spectacular. The venue is a little weird because it’s two stories with a loft up top, so some of your guests won’t get to see the bride and groom during speeches, etc. but after dinner, everyone came downstairs anyway so it wasn’t a big deal. The wedding coordinator Pam was super helpful and communicative and the on-site coordinator on the day of the wedding w... Read more

  • You will absolutely not regret choosing Beso Del Sol as your venue. The views are amazing and you cannot beat the price! All of my guests loved the resort and my wedding went off without a hitch thanks to the wonderful resort and Marker 8 staff! They were responsive and extremely professional. The reception is already so beautiful it required minimal decorating on our part, not to mention our pictures came out spectacular! Pam was amazing to work with and I cannot stress enough how perfect my wedding ended up being!

  • We had planned a beach wedding on Honeymoon Island, when that fell through due to weather, Pam at Besa Del Sol came through with a seriously last minute (same day) booking of their facility to accommodate us. It was a mid week wedding so we were lucky they had space. They had already set up for a wedding event, but worked to ensure our wedding went off without a glitch. Having visited their Marker 8 Tiki Bar in the past, and loved the view of the water, we were aware of the great views and waterfront location.

  • We chose this venue because they were one of only a few that didn't require a minimum number of guests. We had 60. The location is great and the views from inside are amazing, especially at sunset. That's about all you will get here. There are several outrageous rules, the staff is not professional. The venue requires you to use their tiki bar service and will not allow you to bring in an outside contractor. This is the same tiki bar that is downstairs at the resort. While they provide no services (everything else you do yourself or use their preferred vendors). They had a 'security' person outside the door of the venue the entire night just sitting there and at sometimes interrupting the reception to make sure people were not bringing drinks out to the tiki bar below. This really shouldn't matter since the drinks were already purchased from that same tiki bar. The way the 'security' person monitored and policed our guests was intrusive and disrespectful. On top of this, the bar would... Read more

    Our venue is beautiful with amazing views at an affordable price and is unique in that we are not a big cookie cutter venue where high dollar minimums are required. Our venue gives you the freedom to plan and individualize your event. We are known for our excellent customer service. Reading our reviews on Wedding Wire, social media, trip adviser and other wedding sites show this. We anticipate that potential clients will read the information package and the rental agreement that they are signing which clearly states that our venue is “do it yourself” and not all inclusive. We have showings and meetings in the venue almost daily, sometimes have events back to back and clean it the morning of your event, so it is cannot be used for storage. Most venues charge you the extra hours for set up and break down. We do not. Our venue manager was professional and was doing her job. Your guests were extremely rude and disrespectful to her smoking inside and outside the venue door after they were asked to go downstairs to the smoking area, sneaking drinks in and out, taking glassware out of the venue, calling her names and blowing smoke in her face. The penthouse is rented quite often. If assistance was needed turning on the TV or for anything else, clients call our front desk and we are happy to help. The only vendors we require clients to use are Marker 8 and one of our three excellent caterers. Marker 8 and The Venue at Beso Del Sol are two separate businesses. You would not be able to leave one restaurant with a drink and take it into another restaurant, same here. Clients receive bar pricing with their first venue inquiry. Final guest count changes up until the last minute so you are invoiced for the bar closer to the event. We advertise that our venue is a do it yourself venue much like renting a hall and do not provide event coordinator services. We anticipate that potential clients will read the information given to them thoroughly. It seems that you wanted an all-inclusive venue at the price of a venue only and did not research your wedding venue choices.

  • The venue was beautiful and my wedding was a dream! Everything l could dream of...was! The waterviews were amazing, the sunset was breathtaking! Mrs. Dawson was very responsive with my emails and did accomodate my multiple requests for visits. My only suggestions would be to allow the front desk staff to show the venue for drop-ins to see if available, instead of by appointment only. Also, although affordable catering was great (highly reccomend), it would be nice to allow use of customers choice for catering company and charge a non-refundable non-perferred caterer upcharge fee. These two things take away ftom the flexibility one has. All in all l would definitely use the venue again, l would reccomend it 100 percent! Thank you to all the Beso Del Sol staff for making my day so special!

    Pam said… I am so happy you had your dream wedding in our beautiful venue! You and Kevin were a pleasure to work with. Thank you for your suggestions. Our venue is shown by appointment only because in addition to weddings in our venue, we also host business meetings, birthday parties, etc. We don’t want to disappoint someone that has driven several hours to see the venue without an appointment only to be told “sorry, there is a meeting in the venue today and is not available to be shown”. In addition, our front desk staff can’t close the office to show the venue. Our three wonderful preferred caterers offer a wide variety of options and flexibility and were chosen to ensure our guests have delicious food, reliability and professionalism. Congratulations!

  • We used them for block hotel room and not for our wedding ceremony or reception. Since we had our rehearsal dinner there, our guests received an additional discount on their rooms. Such a fun and relaxing place. Plus Dunedin is adorable and gives guests a beachy/small town vibe with plenty of activities. Kids and adult friendly!
