Isla del Sol Yacht & Country Club Reviews from Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:
Marry Me Tampa Bay curates the below reviews from real couples whom we've personally interviewed. As Tampa Bay's most trusted wedding planning resource, these reviews are 100% accurate and aren't created by fake accounts.
We really wanted somewhere with a water view, but without actually being on the beach. We also needed somewhere that could hold 130-160 comfortably. Being somewhere in a fun downtown area or beach was also a must.
When we first met Melissa at Isla Del Sol Yacht and Country Club, we knew it was the place! After touring the entire venue, we were in love with it all and knew it was perfect for us. Melissa answered questions so promptly and was such an incredible resource throughout the entire wedding planning process. She made everything so relaxed and exciting at the same time! The service the day of was phenomenal. The head server was so incredibly kind, the bartenders were amazing, and we’ve heard multiple comments about how nice and accommodating the servers were the night of the wedding.
One of the most important elements of our wedding was the venue. We wanted a venue that would be unforgettable but that also fit all of our needs. We wanted a venue that exemplified Florida’s beauty, but we also really desired privacy and seclusion. We wanted to be the only couple getting married at our venue on our wedding day, which is surprisingly hard to find in the Tampa Bay/St. Pete area. We desired a beautiful reception space that overlooked the water, in addition to a dance floor that fit our dancing needs! When we came upon Isla del Sol Yacht & Country Club, we felt like we had found a hidden gem.
When we first visited Isla del Sol, we immediately fell in love with its beauty. We knew that the private beach with the gazebo would be a perfect place to exchange our vows. After exploring other venues, what attracted us the most to Isla del Sol was the privacy and exclusivity. We would be the only couple getting married on-site on our wedding day. This stood out to us in comparison to other venues. In addition, we loved that the venue included many different elements of our wedding that we didn’t have to establish on our own.
Aside from the venue providing food, beverage, and rentals for our reception, the venue also offered a ceremonial package that included an officiant and a month of wedding planning, which we were more than pleased with. Moreover, Isla del Sol was affordable. There was no venue fee, only a minimum that had to be met. This made Isla del Sol stand out in comparison to other Tampa Bay venues.
As far as service, Melissa’s hospitality could not be overlooked. Whenever a question arose, we would reach out to Melissa, and a response would always be returned quickly and with a smile. On our wedding day, the entire Isla del Sol staff was extremely attentive to us and helped to collaborate a smooth day of events. Isla del Sol provided private locker rooms on-site for the bridal party to get ready in the morning. The private beach, reception space, dance floor, and bonfire following the reception made for an exceptional wedding day.
We wanted something on the beach without literally being on the beach if you know what I mean. We also needed somewhere that would photograph well and have lots of different settings for pictures since it would be a short and sweet day.
We chose Isla Del Sol because of the beautiful location and convenience of where we live now. It had a tiled walkway so I wouldn’t have to walk in the sand in heels as I didn’t want to go barefoot, and the gazebo with the palm trees made for stunning photos. Their service was absolutely amazing. Their wedding coordinator was so sweet and helped everything go smoothly the day of. There was an indoor area for my husband and me to wait in the air conditioning while our guests arrived and got seated. They also had an indoor backup area to do the ceremony in case of inclement weather, which took away the stress of worrying about the afternoon Florida thunderstorms.
I really wanted a ceremony on the beach, but it's hard to have a private beach ceremony. This was the first part of Isla Del Sol we loved. I also wanted some sort of indoor and outdoor option so that we could be inside for our reception but enjoy the outdoors for our ceremony and for pictures. Lastly, I wanted to work with people that seem easy and accommodating. you end up spending a lot of time with the people who are helping you with your wedding so it was super important that when I went on a tour for a wedding venue I felt welcomed and that people wanted to assist and help! Planning a wedding is confusing!
My friend had gotten married a year or two before me and when I saw her pictures I immediately fell in love!! I asked her where she got married and I found out it was Isla Del Sol. I went on a tour with my mom and she loved it too. I only went on ONE tour! I only went to Isla Del sol and I right away knew that is where I wanted my wedding. I specifically picked it because of their ceremony option to be on a private beach, their ballroom area is big and also so gorgeous when it's decorated up, and it seemed like we really get so much and it is a good value for everything you get to have a wedding there. When I found out we could go on a private sailboat after the ceremony that made me think I definitely NEED my wedding here!
