My partner and I chose the Olympic lagoon to get married after reading all the fabulous reviews. Well the wedding reviews were spot on, we had a fabulous day. we chose to get married in the Olympic gardens which was magical, we then chose to pay extra and have our banquet meal in the gardens on the night which was out of this world, so beautiful and the staff on the night couldnt do enough for me and my guests. The photographer 'Harry' was a scream really put us at ease and did us some precious photos which i will treasure forever.
Now the down side, please dont expect to be upgraded!!!!! after reading the majority of reviews on here i went with the impression i would be upgraded to a beautiful room, especially when we also took 30 guests (which meant we spent in the region of £65K in total). We aparently did get upgraded but when we got taken to our room i sat and cried, it was in the middle of the family block, all you could hear was children, i dont want to sound miserable and i love Children but when on honeymoon i dont expect to be put in rooms next to them in the family area.... if you catch my drift!!!
The room was basic in the main hotel, the tiles were falling off in the bathroom and we over looked the roof of the cinnamon bar which aparently was a pool view, we could see a tiny corner of the pool.
I went and looked at some of the other rooms that my guests had and nearly all of them were better than mine, they had booked the same as us and as a wedding couple we got put in the worst one.
After speaking with reception who were really unhelpful we got no joy and were told we had already been upgraded, i wouldnt of liked to see the first room we should of been in.
I then met a couple who were all joyful in reception as they had been upgraded for no aparent reason to the fishermans village, i asked them what the occasion was and they said non, they had booked a normal room and got upgraded. when i asked the reception they said "luck of the draw" i was fuming. After tears and a few bitter words and one night in the horrible room, i asked if we could get any discount if we were willing to pay, they soon found us a room in the fishermans village once money was involved.
We moved the next day and OMG what a difference..... absolutely beautiful, no words can discribe. it was like we were in a different hotel.... this made my wedding and holiday and was definitely worth the money.
My advise if you are getting married or just want some luxury book the fishermans village. Wedding couples take note! don't expect to be upgraded.
Everything else was lovely, great entertainment, great food, great staff especially Miriam and Steve.
The bloke on reception on a night is so miserable, i told the manager about him, he was so rude!
Hope this review helps people when booking here x
