  • The event staff at Casa Ybel was fantastic. For every request the response was a yes. Tori took care of everything, and the waitstaff was attentive. The food was wonderful. The wedding package option helped make planning simple. Can't wait to celebrate our anniversary year after year at Casa Ybel.

  • We had the most stunning destination wedding at casa ybel. We did our ceremony on their gorgeous beach and then the intimate dinner package at thistle lodge. The staff was accommodating and exceeded our expectations. Coming from NY and having never been to sanibel we were nervous but we basically showed up and everything was taken care of for us! The most stress free wedding I could ask for! The food was out if this world!!

  • My experience with Casa Ybel resort and Lea O'Brien was wonderful! She was attentive to all of my needs and wants for my wedding and made sure I was completely satisfied. She stayed in excellent contact with me throughout the planning process and even met with me the day before the wedding during another event because we hadn't been able to connect via the phone during the week before my wedding. Casa Ybel is absolutely stunning and the employees helping out with my brunch reception at Thistle Lodge were amazing. I would highly recommend Casa Ybel for anyone looking for a beachfront or garden feel for your wedding. You will not be disappointed!

  • Casa Ybel is a beautiful, boutique resort with old Florida style and ease. We had our ceremony on the lawn and the reception in the waterfront room above Thistle Lodge, both overlooking the ocean. It was absolutely breathtaking. The staff is kind and accomodating and made sure everything was set up on time and just as we wanted. I couldn't have felt more relaxed. Definitely the best venue for a stress free wedding.

  • My husband and I held our destination wedding at Casa Ybel on 10-6-12, but it wasn't just a one day affair. We had approximately (120) guests join us for a long wedding weekend. We hosted an outdoor welcome reception for all guests on Friday night and it was gorgeous- then the rain rolled in. Lea O'Brien and her staff didn't panic at all as they moved 100+ guests into the bar and restaurant. They transported the entire set-up, all the food, all the beverages and it was seamless. The night was perfect despite the weather and we owe it entirely to Lea and staff! Saturday the ceremony on the beach was perfect and the tented reception was flawless. The food was delicious and Lea was there behind the scenes creating the night of our dreams. We can't rave enough about how kind everyone at Casa Ybel is. They made us all feel so welcome and got to know us by name; we were so sad to see the weekend come to an end. I am in the events industry myself, so my expectations were beyond high... Read more

  • SInce I can't put in my wedding a second time - I'm calling this my anniversary but it was really my wedding on the beach after I got married in church. The event was spectaular and it was great because of Lea O'Brien. She was wonderful to work with, so easy going and accomodating. They made my dream wedding come true and I can't thank her/them enough. The food was the best food I've ever had at a wedding, and the tent and decor was beautiful. I feel so lucky to have had my wedding there. Thank you again!!

  • Casa Ybel was the perfect venue for our wedding. The location is stunning. We loved working with Lea and the staff there to make our wedding day exactly what we wanted. It was perfect, even though Tropical Storm Debby tried to crash the party! We asked tons of questions throughout the wedding planning process, and Lea was always so responsive and thorough. We had almost 60 people at the wedding/reception, and the space in the Thistle Lodge was just right for the size of our wedding. Thanks for making our day so special!

  • I recently had an intimate wedding of just 12 people at Casa Ybel. My wedding coordinator was originally Lea O'Brien but was switched to Tori Weatherford. Lea was very knowledgeable, but I got the sense that my wedding wasn't a high priority. Tori was GREAT and I'm glad that I had her as my wedding coordinator the last few weeks leading up to my wedding. For the wedding, I had requested an iPod player but learned that the staff at Casa Ybel do not play the iPod player and that I needed to get someone in my family to play the music. I was somewhat stressed by this but after meeting with Tori, we figured things out. The music turned out well and we had no problems during the ceremony. One thing I will note is that the day of the rehearsal, I got about 10-15 bites on my legs from no-see-ums while on the beach. They weren't kidding about the bug spray - if there is no wind, you will need to apply bug spray with deet to keep bugs away. Luckily the day of the ceremony, it was ... Read more

  • Casa Ybel is a beautiful resort and great for a wedding. It had a very private and intimate atmosphere even when the resort was completely booked to capacity. The wedding coordinators were very responsive to all my questions and even offered up advice on things I had not considered.

  • Our wedding turned out beautiful, however it was mostly due to the wedding coordinator we hired (Pat Slater), who was there the entire time and stayed till after our reception was over. She made sure everything went smoothly. I was not over impressed with the service we received from Casa Ybel staff. Our reception was upstairs above the Thistle lodge. Beware that this room is tiny and has no elevator. We had 60 people for dinner and dancing and we all barely fit. During the reception I had to remind them to bring out the Champagne for the toast and several people didn't get what they ordered for dinner. Also we paid for the premium liquor package, and I requested that Sauvignon Blanc be served instead of Chardonnay, but they gave us Pinot Grigio and said they didn't have Sauvignon Blanc as an option even though they have one on their menu. However, the grounds and venue were beautiful and the ceremony and reception turned out wonderful. We also had our rehearsal dinner there on the b... Read more

  • The staff at Casa Ybel did everything that they could to make our day special and unique! It was a leap of faith to have our wedding at a resort that we'd only read reviews about and seen pictures of but it was so worth it! The food was AMAZING! Definitely didn't taste like wedding food--everything came out perfectly prepared! And of course, the grounds are stunning!
