  • We booked at Ocean Place very last minute because of COVID. We were fortunate they had our date! We were able to hold our ceremony and reception outdoors, which was important to us. We loved that our guests were able to stay in the hotel after the wedding, convenience is huge for us! Everyone raved about their experience at our wedding, which is all we could hope for! The food, drinks, and service were great. We are so happy Ocean Place could turn out a wedding in 1 month. Thank you again for everything!

  • They offer a beautiful venue, with blue carpeting and chairs, with an ocean view. Berkeley and Kelly, were very attentive and accommodating. We had a small wedding on a Sunday afternoon in June. It was expensive, but worth it, and there were no added costs. They have a kosher kitchen, which was very important for us to have a kosher caterer. If you want to stay there, look through an online service, as the rooms are expensive.

  • My mom had her wedding reception here 25 years ago so my family wanted to check this place out first. The newly renovated space is stunning and there was a wide variety of food for the cocktail as well as the reception. I wish the venue was more in our price rage.

  • Ocean Place is a beautiful resort on the beach that includes everything you need to get ready/celebrate/after party and do it all again. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you're taken care of in every way imaginable.

  • My husband and I were married at OP a few weeks ago, and we could not be happier with our experience. Kelly, Nancy and the rest of the staff were so incredible. Kelly made everything so easy for me and was so helpful in coordinating all my vendors. Everyone was so kind, helpful and responsive. The food and drinks were incredible, everyone at the wedding was raving! We really could not have asked for a better party to celebrate our marriage!

  • Words can't express the debt of gratitude we owe to Nancy Zuckerman, Kelly Hipko, and the entire Ocean Place Resort & Spa catering staff. I've never seen a staff so eager to accommodate their clients. They were willing to go above and beyond to make my wife and I's big day special! And it was the wedding of our dreams! They really wanted the best day for us, and their efforts spoke volumes. I would enthusiastically recommend them to anyone. Especially considering all the challenges and circumstances of the year, I'm glad we had Ocean Place -- they are THE BEST!

  • Berkeley and all of the staff at Ocean Place were amazing. They were so on top of all of the little details for the day, and everything went off without a hitch. All throughout the planning process Berkeley was very attentive and answered any questions I had right away. The staff that night of the wedding was fantastic, and Kal made sure my husband and I never needed to ask for anything. He was always ready with a new drink or a plate of food during cocktail hour. Our day was absolutely perfect and we would highly recommend Ocean Place!

  • It's taken a month to write this review because we just haven't been able to find the words to decscribe how perfect everything was. We opted for a ceremony on the beautiful brick patio. It was private yet had the incredible beach views we wanted. The cocktail hour had the same spectacular views and our guests have not stopped talking about how fabulous the food was both at the cocktail hour and the reception. Words can't begin to describe how wonderful the staff was to work with. Berkeley held our hand from start to finish. She is friendly and professional and her attention to detail made wedding planning a breeze. She was always available to offer suggestions/advice and answer any questions along the way. Thanks go to her assistant Kelly and of course Dawn-head of catering for all their help as well. At all times they made us feel like we were the only event on their schedules. The bride and groom have both said that if they could do it again, they wouldn't change a single thing.... Read more

  • Berkeley was wonderful! We definitely recommend her working with you if you ever do a wedding at Ocean Place! She is as able to work with us and the staff was phenomenal! My husband and I enjoyed having our wedding here! Love the ocean view and the many accommodations made to make our special day extra special. Thank you Berkeley and staff!

  • If you are looking for a beach wedding close to home then this is the place! It felt and looked like we were in the Carribean somewhere. Everything was absolutely beautiful. The resort is nothing short of stunning, the ballrooms range in size so it can accommodate any size wedding. The food was outstanding! Of course I didn’t eat much until later in the evening but all guests raved about how great it was and the amount. Julianne and her team were exceptional and really cared about what WE wanted! She responded to every call/email/text and was always so professional. I highly recommend Ocean Place and wish I could do it all over again!

  • We cannot say enough compliments about Kerri Spieser and our wedding team. Kerri was there along the way to help plan the wedding of my dreams and answer all of my crazy questions but also there every part of my wedding day to ensure it was all moving smoothly. Her interns did an amazing job as well. Also, she turned it over to the most amazing team during the reception who ensured that we got all the food we needed and endless drinks. Thank you all for making our wedding dreams come true! We knew from the second we walked into Ocean Place and met Kerri that it was the only place we wanted to get married. I never thought after our first venue visit that my fiancé and Maid of Honor would have said “we don’t even need to look anywhere else because this place is absolutely perfect”. The venue is beautiful! I had rain on my wedding day and was still blown away by their backup spaces which gave a full view of the beach and the ocean. Plenty of places for beautiful pictures both insid... Read more

  • We did not end up having our event here due to COVID, however, we almost moved it to them if we received our initial deposits back more quickly. Beth was AMAZING. the most supportive, flexible, responsive, and genuinely interested coordinator we have spoken with throughout planning and replanning our wedding. I wish we could've made it work as Ocean Place clearly cares about their couples and guests. They were flexible and invested in outdoor accommodations for reasonable prices, when many other venues nearby were not. A huge plus too is the ambiance of the hotel as well as offering beautiful rooms for a full 'resort" experience for your guests. The rooms during the offseason were also VERY affordable for what you get. I very much recommend. The only flaw is their main room doesn't have windows... I hope they change that + the carpet in that room.

  • Lack of communication and miscommunication between staff. Misleading information given to us. We have no plans to have our event at this venue let alone stay here anytime in the near future for that matter. No trust formed here.

  • Too many changes happened with COVID to really give a an honest assessment of the negations for this wedding. Some of them were by no fault of the Hotel, but I felt some were. I know it is a business deal at the end of the day-I get it. I don't like bartering and I don't like last minute changes. I hate that crap. I personally just have a bad feeling about those meetings and the constant changes. So, that being said, on the day of the wedding, that was perfect. They did an excellent job with everything. Extremely polite and went way out of their way to make everything go well. Our guests had nothing but good things to say.

  • Ok this actually kind of hurts me to write this. First I will say the actual wedding and everything leading up to it was fantastic. It was a wonderful day and I felt taken care of and the food was absolutely amazing! After the wedding was when things swiftly went downhill. I had a wedding arbor that I personally built that was very large, and had arranged (so I thought) to pick it up Tuesday from the loading dock (wedding was sunday). Came to pick it up after confirming that morning, and it was completely torn apart in a dumpster. I have no idea why there wasn't a notice given to staff saying it was being picked up that day, but things happen I guess. So, myself my husband and a groomsman had to take all the pieces out of the dumpster ourselves to bring home. To be fair it was raining, but I had hoped for some sense of responsibility from staff to rectify the problem. Also realized afterwards that some of my personal items were never returned, probably taken by some staff, and the lo... Read more
