My wife & I considered a lot of destinations for our wedding. We had guests coming from a few different parts of the US, and although it was a small wedding of 20 people, we span 4 generations and have a pretty wide array of tastes/backgrounds. We wanted a tropical location, relatively easy/cheap to get to, that could house us all - with plenty of space, and on top of it all - it needed a great restaurant. We came across Villa Montana online & immediately heard back from their wedding coordinator, Yhasmina, with an incredibly detailed wedding package proposal. We were quickly convinced that Villa Montana would meet our requirements & set to work customizing every detail of the package to our liking. Every detail was itemized & we could add/remove features as we pleased. Yhasmina was amazing at taking care of the details that we never would have even thought of, and on wedding day she was on top of everything & pulled it off without a hitch. We didn't have an opportunity to scout potential locations & picked one sight unseen, so having a wedding coordinator we could trust was important. Yhasmina did not disappoint, she was amazing.
The food & staff at Eclipse are wonderful. We decided to have both rehearsal & reception dinner at Eclipse & let all of our guests order off the regular menu. They pulled it off perfectly, and all 20 of our guests had nothing but compliments. We always felt extremely comfortable & well cared for. The bonfire on the beach with S'mores after rehearsal was a fun addition to the package & the staff even provided great service throughout that!
Like everything else, the rooms at Villa Montana exceeded my expectations as well. We had 10 separate rooms for our guests & based on some of the other comments, I was a little concerned we would all be too spread out. That really wasn't a problem. None of the rooms are terribly far apart, and the walk across the grounds is beautiful. It's never further than a few min walk to anything. Plus we received a complimentary room upgrade, champagne, fruit tray, and other goodies! My wife really liked the driftwood & burlap décor in the room too, and wants to recreate something similar at home now :)
The beach is beautiful as well, and breakers offshore make the perfect backdrop for the wedding gazebo. The water is wavy there, but certainly swimmable & there's some good snorkeling right offshore. We enjoyed watching the paddle boarders riding the waves offshore in the morning over a cup of coffee, and the kite surfers moving in in the afternoon. Overall it's a very picturesque location, everywhere you turn. We even saw a flock of rare Puerto Rican parrots sitting on the grounds before the wedding!
All in all, if we had to do it over again, we wouldn't change a single detail (except to have stayed longer).
