Beso Del Sol Reviews From Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:

“Our first date was at Clearwater Beach, so overlooking the Bay while having our first dance as husband and wife was a full-circle moment for us. We wanted intimacy and uniqueness and also being within our budget couldn’t hurt! Beso Del Sol had that ocean view we were looking for, but none of that Florida heat from a beach wedding. The venue has a wall when walking in that’s all glass, overlooking beautiful blue waters. Beso was also the perfect size for our small-ish party, and with two levels this would give the guests the options to either people to watch or to partake in the boogying. The venue coordinator promoted the “DIY” aspect of the venue. This was a huge win since I already had a vision, and I’m really picky. The fact that we could make it our own was beautiful to us. The venue had beautiful spots for pictures; the pier and the park across Beso Del Sol provided amazing bridal portraits.” -Ibette and Sandor | White, Greenery, and Gold Dunedin Waterfront Wedding

“I loved Beso Del Sol from the first time I saw it! At first if the split floor-plan would work, however, once I saw the room set up with tables and chairs in it for a tasting event, Ryan and I made our decision pretty quickly. It was in such a beautiful place and conveniently located near our church and downtown Dunedin. All of the staff I had met were so friendly and attentive. Pam was incredibly helpful throughout the process answering all of my questions. I've never planned a wedding before so I asked a lot of things that were probably obvious to someone who does weddings for a living! I loved that Beso isn't a giant hotel that does five or six weddings every weekend, and I really appreciated the personal touches of having our wedding at a smaller hotel.” -Kelsie and Ryan | Purple and Silver Waterfront Dunedin Wedding

“We wanted a cozy, intimate space within our budget that would guarantee heartfelt memories to be cherished and cater to guest accommodations. We chose the waterfront venue at Beso Del Sol for the infinite horizons of the backdrop of Florida’s Gulf Coast including Honeymoon Island. It was the perfect fit for the start of our lives together and exceeded our expectations. Pam Dawson, the venue coordinator, provided us with a wealth of information on preferred vendors. She also assisted in the preparation of the timeline, organization of the seating chart, and floor plan for the reception. Beso Del Sol accommodated all our needs.” -Tara and Leon | Intimate Sunflower Inspired Waterfront Dunedin Wedding

“I wanted something classic in a wedding venue, but also something that could be tweaked to reflect our personalities. The atmosphere made Beso Del Sol so great. It was so different from any other venue we had seen, and it almost felt more like a loft space. I loved how different the layout was and that you had a stunning view of the water without being outside!” -Jennifer and James | Waterfront, Nautical and Navy Beso Del Sol Wedding

Dusty Blue Coastal Dunedin Wedding | Beso Del Sol

We wanted a wedding where everyone was comfortable so the coastal theme really helped with that.

Marry Me Tampa Bay helped us select the right venue. We chose Beso Del Sol due to their affordability. Their service was fantastic and very professional, and it has the best water views and sunsets we’ve ever seen! The majority of our wedding vendors were suggested by Beso.  They were very helpful in the planning process. 

The water has always been something that we have enjoyed together and to have the opportunity to have a waterfront wedding with only our friends and family was such an incredible experience.
