  • Karen Marchand and the team at LaPlaya did an exceptional job with my daughter in law and son's wedding on May 26, 2018! Karen and her team are thorough and professional, offering great advice along the way! Karen possesses a calm, reassuring demeanor, which makes her an absolute dream to work with! We had so much fun with the planning and the actual event!! We did not have the picture perfect Naples weather we were hoping for, but had chosen LaPlaya in part for their beautiful space in the event of bad weather! Our day was perfect because of the choice! The food was truly outstanding, definitely on a level beyond usual a banquet food, and the service impeccable!! We also were able to capture beautiful photos in various gorgeous spots throughout the property in spite of the weather!! We highly recommend LaPlaya!!!

  • We chose to have our destination wedding at LaPlaya. Betsy and her team did an amazing job. From the first call through the final departure they expertly handled everything. Due to this we had a stress free wedding and we were able to enjoy our time with our friends and family. All of the staff from the front desk to the poolside/beach staff are very kind, professional and courteous. The grounds are absolutely breathtaking and the food is fresh and delicious. We also hosted a cocktail reception on the day all of our guests arrived and a farewell brunch. Again everything was phenomenal. We want to thank Betsy again for everything. She was a great pleasure to work with. No question/concern that we had was left unanswered and she was also there checking in to make sure everything was to the highest standards. She also coordinated meetings with our florist/day of coordinator Steven Bowles to facilitate the decor and planning process. We can't thank her enough for making our sp... Read more

  • I am not sure how I can ever thank Melanie at the Laplaya!!! We just came home from having our sons wedding there. From the very beginning Melanie was always there to help me plan and organize everything we needed to have a beautiful wedding. I had so many questions and planning a destination wedding from another state could have been very stressful. I had NO STRESS at all. Melanie took care of all the details, was always easy to talk to and get ahold of,which was so comforting to me. The wedding details were perfect and the wedding was perfect. The service and extra special care from Melanie is so greatly appreciated. The room was beautiful, the food was absolutely delicious! The Laplaya and Melanie made our sons wedding the most beautiful memory we could ask for!!! Thank you Melanie!!!! J. Sage

  • Melanie, our wedding planner at the resort, was FABULOUS. She was on top of everything and personable. She was calm and collected and professional. The resort itself was unbelievable...from the front desk staff to the pool-side staff, employees were happy and made you feel important. They open doors and ask how they can help. My husband and I think the LaPlaya is how a 5-star hotel should be ran. We couldn't have chosen a better place for our wedding and reception for our destination wedding.

  • The LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort was everything I imagined for my beautiful wedding day. My guests had a great time, the staff was attentive and helpful and everything went as planned. To top things off my floral and decorator Dream Occasions Studio made everything just as I imagined. I was also lucky to have one truly best photographers in Florida Alfredo from Couture Bridal Photography from Fort Lauderdale. So my day went without a hitch at the best venue for a wedding, that was decorated amazingly and I have the memories of my wedding day with amazing photography from the best in photography. I recommend the LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort, Dream Occasions Studio and Couture Bridal Photography for anyone planning a wedding in the Naples area and definitely Dream Occasions and Couture Bridal Photography for any wedding anywhere!

  • LaPlaya came through PERFECTLY! If you get a chance to work with Melanie, she makes all your dreams come true. We could not have asked for a better event planner. She reply's to you within minutes! I swear at times there had to have been 2 of her with all that she handled! We don't know how she does it. There was no stress and she took care of all the details. I would recommend her and Laplaya!!!

  • My husband and i had decided to do a wedding on Vanderbilt Beach. After some research of my own i found Laplaya Golf and Resort. We wanted to stay within a certain budget but have an intimate wedding of 30 people. This we got! I worked with Melanie the hotel wedding coordinator. Not sure if that's her exact passion there but she did a fabulous job always keeping things on track and keeping everyone on time. She communicates very well and is very responsive to your needs. We also worked with Gail would sealed the deal,, marrying us on that beautiful Sunday. Gail was also a pleasure to work with and very professional. She was so easy going and made things simple for us with the vowels and legal stuff;-). I can't say enough about the staff involved. We did the brunch venue to make it more simple for our guest. The food was fantastic many of our guest had expressed to me, and the service was on point and curtious. We had some issues with the sun moving on us so we had to move the table umb... Read more

  • I honestly dont even know where to start my review. La Playa is the PERFECT place to get married. Karen was our wedding coordinator and she just OUTSTANDING beyond words! She kept in touch with me the whole year I was planning, whenever I emailed her she got back to me right away, always returned my calls, was so patient with me and my grandma's requests and did everything in her power to make sure we had the most perfect and special day. She truly went above and beyond for us and we love her for that! We were suppose to get married on the gulf lawn but got married on the windiest day ever and had to change our location to across the street on the terrace an hour before. She was SO great about it along with the other staff. Renee who also helped out during the night of our wedding so was SO attentive and always checking in on us. The ceremony location, cocktail hour (terrace) and reception (Vanderbilt ballroom) were all stunning!!! We also stayed in their suites that friday and saturda... Read more

  • La Playa is a beautiful and relaxing venue for a wedding. We had a rehearsal dinner on the beach and the ceremony on the lawn. The lawn is lushly landscaped and the ballroom across the street has a wide verandah that overlooks the water; all beautiful. Our Event Coordinator, Melanie, was awesome and when we our Pastor couldn't perform the ceremony, she found someone else who did a wonderful job. Melanie was extremely helpful with all the details as well.

  • We started our wedding planning with LaPlaya 7 months prior to our wedding date. LaPlaya provided us with a guide that helped us find vendors for the wedding. This was extremely helpful when planning a destination wedding. We loved all of our vendors chosen!!! LaPlaya was a perfect setting for the wedding we both dreamed about. Our guest had a blast and want to do a repeat of it every year. :) I voted yes for that!! If you love the beach and want to offer a special place for your guest, LaPlaya is second to NONE.

  • We had a beautiful event and couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting. The food was absolutely amazing! Everyone loved it. I felt like the cocktail hour food was not as plentiful as I would have liked. What we did have was superb. The room looked beautiful and the servers were great in general. Be aware that your guests will be carded! Ok I can see that that may be an issue at some weddings but we were never told this and it continued all night. We had a large group of Europeans and they didn't even know what they were being asked. We had only 2 teenagers at our wedding and they were well aware of that from the start. Should have been handled differently. We had prearranged for our own wine to be used and that was all mixed up, but all was really good in the end. Had a weather concern at the start and it was handled beautifully. Our bride (my daughter-in -law) missed out on the lantern alley set up which was disappointing. Overall a gorgeous venue with outstanding food and n... Read more

  • I had my destination wedding at La Playa. It is a beautiful venue and definitely has that WOW factor. There were 3 other weddings at La Playa that weekend, so I didn't feel super special and attended to, since there were so many other brides. Also,The food was so-so for how much you pay. We didn't get a lot of compliments on the food. And the only other thing that was kind of a bummer was the wedding coordinator turned on the florescent lights and kicked everyone out of the ballroomroom at 10:25, our reception was supposed to end at 10:30...it was an abrupt way to end our evening. It almost felt like they wanted to get everyone out of their ballroom so the staff could go home. I was a bit ticked about that especially after how much money we were spending. Besides those few things, i'd recommend this beautiful place to anyone planning a destination wedding!!

  • La Playa is -hands down- the perfect place to have a destination wedding! We had 60 guests travel great distances to join us for the weekend and everyone just raved about the resort and location. The resort is beautiful, the setting is breathtaking, and the service was impeccable. Everyone from the valets, to the front desk staff, to the banquet captain were friendly and helpful. We had our rehearsal dinner on the gulf lawn and the wedding ceremony on the beach/ballroom. The sunsets were magical. The food was terrific. There was even another wedding going on the same weekend and they did a great job of keeping the events separate. I cannot thank Karen Marchand enough for her patience and expertise guiding us through the whole planning process. She was so responsive and friendly; every request was handled quickly and pleasantly. I felt like her priority throughout the whole process even though I'm sure she was dealing with several brides! She truly made the planning so much eas... Read more

  • We are so happy we chose LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort for our February wedding. It was one of the best decisions we made in our entire wedding planning process. Karen and her team at LaPlaya were exceptionally professional, flexible, competent and patient. The ceremony and reception were absolutely beautiful; the food was delicious; and the service was top-notch. LaPlaya is a gorgeous resort that puts a priority on hosting beautiful weddings. We couldn't recommend LaPlaya more!
