  • I decided to have my wedding at Crystal Ball Room when it was literally nothing but gray concrete walls. I put my trust in them and they came through. Alberto helped me majority of the way. The venue has two separate rooms, one for ceremony and the other for reception. Both rooms decorated to the max. Its just breathtaking. I did have one hiccup a week before my wedding, but Alberto made it his duty to help as much as he could. Please when initially booking make sure you ask all questions down to “How many quest are included in this package?” “If I ended up with more guest 10 days before my event, how much is each person?” Or “ Who will manager my food?” At Crystal Ball Room, you have to bring your own Liquor and Food. Anything that you want to be eaten you have to bring on your own which is good because you save alot more money. I would recommend getting your liquor from Total Wine & Sprits because they accept returns for what’s unopened. Ask Alberto about all monie... Read more

  • Very beautiful and stunning venue overlooking the beach. This venue was everything a bride could dream of. We found this venue by following Elvis/Broward Catering on Facebook and fell in love with it instantly. Everything about this place is beautiful....the chandeliers, marble floors, the decor....Very spectacular. If you're looking for a dream wedding then this is the place. Our guests really enjoyed themselves and tney can't stop talking about this venue. Thanks Crystal Ballroom for making our wedding a memorable one.

  • The crystal ballroom was fantastic! There is not one negative thing I could say about it. Alberto was amazing from the beginning, from when we booked before construction even started all the way to our big day. He made it all a stress free experience. I couldn’t be more grateful for everything he has done! I would do it all over again in a heart beat. I highly recommend for all your events! Now I just need to figure out another event to have an excuse to go back!! Haha

  • I had my wedding here October 12th and everything was amazing. Absolutely gorgeous venue. I’m so glad we found Crystal Ballroom. The day was stress free. Alberto and his staff were professional, organized and so nice! The decor was beautiful! The day was perfect. Our family and friends have been telling us how beautiful our day was and this was the best wedding they have attended. I highly recommend this venue!

  • Before booking this venue please stop and do your research. The prices fluctuate from day to day. Nothing is really set in stone. Read through these comments and see for yourself the unprofessionalism from the manager ! Who argues with people in reviews !!! I want you to hear me out before booking the venue. Stop and research, call a planner, look at your options because I GUARANTEE you can find something for the same price that offers way more than crystal ballroom. ASK SOMEONE FIRST, CALL A PLANNER. Do not book impulsively. The owner is there to sell you a dream that’s all. When you go visit he will make you feel like this is it. Not saying not to book him but research first. You have to pay for parking, your guest can end up paying up to 40 dollars depending on the day. Traffic is AWFUL always !!! The decor is very basic and there really are not much options to choose from. It’s your wedding day, don’t settle please, you can find better, research before booking. You will get ... Read more

    Hi Laurie , Good Morning. Crystal Ballroom Beach Place Offers Different price points for different days . As you know we are a Brand New Venue in South Florida & we always try to give our clients the best deal based on their event needs. Being that we are a new venue all of our Decor inventory is new and we order everything per request EVENT BY EVENT and we are very open to thinking outside the box and exceeding our brides expectations. Parking is $25.00 per vehicle(on the spot) & if our clients decide on paying the parking in advanced which is offered at a much lower rate with the parking garage company, they will be given a discount, this is something that is really out of our control when it comes to a BEACH FRONT VENUE , However we educate our clients on all of their options that are available to them. Your concerns are very alerting and will be considered. Thank you Have a great & Blessed day.

  • He is a rude adult, he yelled at me, my mommy, aunts & cousins he told us to stop and he was going to keep my Aunt deposit. He said his chairs was ruined Mr Alberto was mean and nasty , when I saw him after my aunts wedding. He almost made me cry . We showed him the floor and chairs we had already removed the decals from , but he still was telling us to stop. We just left and went back to our hotel , I was very upset with his unprofessionalism and that he was rude and yelling .

  • Alberto is a very , very unprofessional Manager , and I would not recommend anyone due business with him or anything his name is attached to he lies effortlessly. Potential renters BEWARE the contract you do not get everything for free as listed-in the contract. For starters my daughter paid for a 2 hour rehearsal ceremony and once the bridal party reported for practice Alberto rudely dismissed them and told them to report to the hot sandy beach outside , despite it being 100 degrees outside at 4:00 pm in the afternoon . Once we politely reminded him of our prior agreement he admitted his mistake and allowed the rehearsal practice to take place inside. (Just one of many untruths he told throughout this process.) On to the next major catastrophic occurrence he approved monogram decor on both the floor & his ghost chairs, and advised us that his crew would be removing this decor once the event was over. The company that we hired to provide service of this nature personally supplied h... Read more

  • Well I just don’t know where to begin because a great memory of my cousin’s wedding at such a beautiful venue has left such a bad taste in my mouth due to Alberto being so unprofessional, rude and deceitful with a mouth full of lies just to make his money but leaves a bride to walk into her wedding reception to a total different view of her vision that was suppose to be the most happiest day of her life...... then to end the wedding to being told that she is held responsible to remove the monograms off the very uncomfortable chairs that his staff was fully aware by contract that they will be removing it with a little bit of elbow grease which they agreed to! When himself and staff got lazy and didn’t want to do the work then we were told that the deposit will not be given back because his chairs are now ruined LIES, LIES, LIES AND MORE LIES!!!! The bridal party had no issue coming back the next morning to remove it ourselves but Alberto and his staff advised them to stop I guess ... Read more

  • On June 21,2019 my friend sister had her wedding at the Crystal Ballroom. When we met Alberto he was kind, helpful, and informed us that the bride would have everything she wanted. The day of the wedding we were to have sunflowers as centerpieces per the brides request and Alberto informed us that they’ll be able to take care of that. When we got there they were no sunflowers as centerpieces. We had to have our personal florist add whatever yellow flowers she had to the centerpieces to go with the decor for the wedding. We also had someone come and place monograms on some of the clear chairs that we were using for the wedding. They personally spoke with Alberto and informed him of the proper way to remove the monogram, informed him that it would be a little time consuming, and reassured him that the chairs will be fine and back to normal. Alberto was fine with it. So the wedding went on as planned. As the night was coming to an end the hall manager spoke with the mother of the bride ... Read more

  • I had the pleasure/displeasure of securing this venue long before the first tile was laid. Initially I was excited due to the fast talking sales pitch that Alberto presented. Alberto showed us a photo slideshow of various wedding decor from previous weddings supposedly held at other Crystal Palace locations with the promise of allowing us to choose our own decor/ table setup / centerpieces etc. First and foremost people check your contract ; venue pricing contract starts around 10K and is only for 100 guests, any additional guest can costs you $25 per head & they charge you an additional $3.00 per guests for gratuity! We were told that we would be allowed to choose our setup decor from the various inventory items they would have on hand as we approached our celebratory day! Well the day came for us to visit the Venue in order to make a selection on these items, referencing table setup as well as the color scheme along with the decor or lack there of. The venue itself is abso... Read more
