  • We had our ceremony and reception at Cape Rey, and we are so glad we did! Working with Louise the wedding coordinator was amazing, and all of the staff on site were beyond courteous throughout the whole process. You can tell that everyone loves their jobs, and it shows through in the vibe of the hotel, and in the events hosted there. The venue was perfect - we got a beautiful sunset, across the street from the beach. Had a beautiful tropical vibe, and was very easy to get around the property. Parking is great, guests loved the food! Drinks were strong. What more can I say?

  • Lousie and Cape Rey Team hosted an amazing wedding for us! I couldn't be happier with our overall wedding.. One main reason you should go with them is there service is A1. Louise had great communication through the planning process and was very flexible on tradition customs.. Unlike other venues that didn't want to make custom menus or pricing. Cape Rey really worked with us.. plus the resort is sooooo nice! Food was excellent too!! Thank Louise!

  • I couldn’t be happier with choosing Cape Rey as my ceremony and reception site. The space for 225 was absolutely perfect. I was most attracted to this venue because of their willingness to make our day so unique to us. All the other venues kept telling us no about outside catering to have half Persian and half American and Cape Rey was more than willing to accommodate. The huge asset to Cape Rey is getting to work with Louise Lambert. She is BEYOND helpful! She is extremely professional and communicates in a very timely fashion. She helped make Blake and I feel special and that she was only working with us. Her focus and attention to detail is amazing. Thank you Cape Rey & thank you Louise Lambert!

  • Our wedding was last weekend 9/28/2018. We had our dinner rehearsal and welcome party the night before. I cannot explain how amazing Louise and the Cape Rey venue was for our dinner rehearsal, welcome party, and wedding ceremony! Louise is so great to work with. She was very professional, always responded quickly, and was just a pleasure to work with! I planned everything from Chicago, so you can imagine all the stresses I had planning from afar. However, Louise went far and beyond to help us with our day. Any of my concerns with the venue were not even a problem. I was worried about the traffic or cars on the road being too loud. But you honestly did not hear anything whatsoever! We had our wedding on a Friday at 4PM too. Everything from the food, cocktails, venue set-up, and ambience was perfect. All of my 250 guests kept commenting how beautiful the place was with all the greenery as a background to compliment the floral arch. I am very sad the day is over, but I would recommend thi...

  • I recently worked a wedding at Cape Rey and was very impressed! The staff was incredibly helpful, not only on the wedding day, but the days leading up to it as well! Louise was very organized and detail oriented. Sean and his team were also fantastic to work with on the big day. On top of the wonderful staff, Cape Rey is also such a gorgeous property and one of the few venues in the Carlsbad area (especially near the beach!). I'm excited to go back!!

  • We just got married at the Cape Rey on March 25th and had a perfect weekend. Robin was so nice and answered all my millions of questions and the wedding was exactly how i envisioned it. The service was amazing and the food was so delicious! We even lucked out with having gorgeous weather and a stunning sunset!

  • My husband and I searched for a venue for our wedding for several months and Cape Rey was the perfect fit! Their coordinator, Robin was a pleasure to work with and offered above and beyond support for our wedding. They have several wedding packages to choose from and they even helped us to personalize our own. The outside lawn and terrace overlook the ocean and make the perfect backdrop for a ceremony and cocktail hour. Inside the ballroom they have beautiful up lighting and will set the room up however you choose. The service during dinner was fabulous and the food was delicious! Our guests raved about the appies from our cocktail hour as well as the delicious meals. The beach is only steps away so we were able to take photos and still enjoy the end of our cocktail hour. They were also extremely accommodating with their space for set up and take down of the wedding. They truly made us feel at home! We would highly recommend Cape Rey if you’re looking for a beautiful waterfront San D... Read more

  • Cape Rey Carlsbad captured my heart when I visited their with my then boyfriend for a weekend getaway. Spending time at the pool or around the fire pit with a cocktail was one of our favorite past times while we were dating. The beauty of it's property and the professionalism of their staff is what always drew me to the property for business and pleasure and made me want to send my clients there for their own wedding. As a wedding planner in San Diego for the past 12 years, I continue to be amazed with Cape Rey and often send my clients there for their wedding. Louise Lambert, Catering Manager is exquisite. Her attention to detail and the calm sense in her demeanor is something that deserves high praise. Everything that I love about the property shines through in the way she presents herself and the way she takes ownership of every situation, every bride, every time and my clients wedding there in March was no exception. She is there to guide you, inform you, treat you like a V... Read more

  • My husband and I got married at Cape Rey and could not have asked for a better wedding. Every single part of our wedding day was better than we could have ever imagined. From a perfect day to a perfect location to amazing support throughout our whole wedding process, Cape Rey was the best place to get married. Robin was so extremely helpful from the time we booked the venue until the day after our wedding. She is amazing at what she does and our wedding wouldn't have been amazing as it was if it wasn't for her. I highly recommend Cape Rey to any couples looking for a beachside wedding!

    The pleasure was all mine. It was amazing! I am so glad your wedding day was all you hoped it would be. I love what I do...and this is exactly why!!

  • Robin at Cape Rey was our wedding coordinator - she went ABOVE and BEYOND what we had expected! She always took time to meet with us at the venue leading up to the wedding whenever we had questions or concerns, was always available by phone or email, and had amazing ideas to help us through the process. Everything was explained perfectly, and she was extremely laid back, which made my husband and I stay calm (which we really needed!) A few weeks before the wedding, we realized that our guest count was too high for the smaller ballroom that we had originally booked for the reception. Not only was the larger ballroom available (thank goodness), but Robin sent us different layouts/plans for how she could set up the room, and made sure there was 0 hassle in switching our booking from the smaller room to the larger room. We did have some hiccups the day of the wedding, and if it weren't for Robin, we don't know how it would have ended up. 2 hours before the ceremony, we received word that o... Read more

  • This venue is so beautiful and the venue manager, Louise, is such a pleasure to work with. It was so nice to have everything included (tables, chairs, place settings, etc) and the food is amazing! It is also super convenient for guests to stay at the resort. We had our rehearsal dinner, welcome reception, wedding ceremony & reception, and farewell brunch here.

  • The only complaint I have at this time is that for a long time we had no real advocate/contact with the transition. We understand that this was hard to avoid, however it made communication a little harder.

  • We just hosted a 450-person event at the Cape Rey and honestly our various committees could not think of a single thing we'd change about it (except for some menu costs and the 23% resort fee - steep, but offset by everything else being well above par). Location is fantastic, view is gorgeous, the guests loved being able to wander down to the beach for phenomenal sunset views, the large patio area is beautiful and a great spot for adding to any event ambiance. The staff, from Louise Lambert (Events Manager) to Rosa in Banquet services and down to everyone else we encountered, was absolutely awesome - so professional and attentive. We definitely would return to host more events here!
