We chose this hotel for our wedding reception in August 2010. We were very nervous at first as the menu prices for guests are on the more expensive side. I can honestly say though, that we got excellent value for our money. Unlike wedding receotions at home, menu print and table settings are included. The table settings were candles wrapped in whote roses and they were beautiful. In any event, this would not have worried me as the hotel surroundings are amazing. I will not rehearse what has been said in the other reviews save as to say this place really is "paradise on earth".
When we arrived with our heavey cases we were told to take a seat and a welcome cocktail was provided mmmmmmmmm. The club lounge thing is amazing, free bar really from 10am - 9pm so long as your remain in the main terrace area.
I agree with other reviews regarding staff to a certian extent. yes they will keep an eye out to enusre that you are a hotel guest. I would advise you to remember that the Italians are very different to us. They didn't really undertsand why we needed 6 glasses of proseco an hour!
The wedding menu was 6 courses and amaazing. Best wedding cake I have ever had (also soaked in alchohol!) The hotel manager met with us two days before along with our wedding planner, Alessandra Volino (highly recommended). The best word i can use to describe him is "smooth" - a true proffessional! But I have to say his maitre d outshone him on the day of my wedding. he was the most proffessional person I have enountered. I have eaten in La Gavroche in London and got the same service from the maitre d at my wedding!
Also included in the menu price was a half bottle of wine per guest, plus a welcome glass of Proesco. Well the Proseco reception lasted aroung 90 mins with the drink free flowing. During the meal, the red and whote wine kept flowing! Those drinking wine basically got a free bar!
It truely was the best day of my life!
