  • 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.

  • 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 just had our wedding at Ocean Place on 10/28/17. The venue was stunning and the whole day went perfectly! Every detail was planned out flawlessly and all of the staff were incredibly patient and accommodating with all of our wishes for the weekend. Most importantly, Gioia was absolutely fantastic to work with. She made my mom and I so comfortable throughout the whole planning process and the day went flawlessly. We could not have asked for a better coordinator or a nicer, more patient and accommodating person to help us with our special day. Thank you to Gioia and the Ocean Place for making our wedding dreams come true!

  • If you want a venue on the beach where you can host your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception this is the place for you. Ocean Place is beautiful inside and out. We had such an amazing wedding and couldn’t have asked for anything better. It was flawless! All of our guest raved about the amount and quality of food offered at cocktail hour and dinner. No one walked away hungry that is for sure. Kerri, our wedding coordinator, was amazing. She was very prompt answering all emails and sending over any paperwork we needed. She was also around all weekend and helped to organize the perfect wedding day. Dawn in catering was also great the day of the wedding. Kerri and Dawn make the perfect team! Thank you for everything. *Note - Room blocks- like other reviews have stated we would also only give 1 star. In a matter of 5 months we went through 3 contacts. Our second contact was actually the most helpful and dependable guy. Details aside, if you plan to book at Ocean Place to be prepared... Read more

  • We decided to have our wedding here because we wanted Jersey shore, close to the beach and allow our guests, who are mostly out of town a mini vacation. Everything was beyond our expectations. Gioia is the best when is comes to event planning and she absorbed any stress and was quick to offer solutions to anything that popped up at the last minute. The venue was fantastic, everyone who attended local or out of towner, said this felt like destination wedding while being in New Jersey. The staff was absolutely fantastic the entire time and catered to everything we wanted. The hotel is very nice and glad we went with an ocean facing view. Then the food, oh the food....there was so much and so good. We went with the buffet stations and everyone said besides the food being amazing, they loved being able to have as much of their favorite as they wanted, until the coffee bar which apparently included 4 types of coffee drinks that left our guests going back for 2nds and 3rds.

  • My husband and I hosted our wedding July 2017. -As a hotel: it's nice. The rooms are okay but clean. The common areas are very pretty. The staff are polite. -Room blocks: I would give one star. There were a few mistakes with reservations that had to be corrected via frequent phone calls. What really made us angry and reconsider having our guests stay with ocean place was .... we knew 9 months beforehand we would need around 45 rooms total. We were told that once we block rooms, we are 100% financially responsible (you can not release rooms 30 days beforehand like you can at most other places). This is obviously hard to decide the number of rooms since it was 9 months before the wedding and we didn't know for sure who would come. Victoria V. advised us to block less rooms than we thought we needed so we would not be financially responsible if they did not get booked. So this is what we did. Closer to the wedding date, we knew for sure we needed more rooms. They DOUBLED the pric... Read more

  • We had our wedding here in June 2017, and everything was amazing!! The outdoor cocktail hour, the food, and the reception were all amazing. The staff is super helpful and courteous. Everyone loved our wedding! We had Kerri as our coordinator and she was nothing but sweet and helpful.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • I waited 38 years for my wedding day and sad to say I was disappointed with the venue. It was a destination wedding my welcome bags were not given out properly, they broke my cake topper, my guest were not changed correctly. 3 of them has a second charge 3 months after the wedding. The food was cold, the lights were bright all night. The only good part was the cocktail hour. The worst part of it all was that when I complained NOTHING was done. A free weekend at the hotel would have been a nice way to smooth thing over but instead I got nothing not even a response. So if you want a beautiful wedding please do not book it at Ocean Place Spa and Resort in Long Branch NJ
