I cannot say enough good things about the Casa Marina. My wedding was absolutely spectacular - perfect in every way. The Casa Marina is stunning, there is no doubt about that. I looked at pretty much every venue in Key West before deciding on the Casa, and I am so happy that I did! It had everything I wanted - a backup room in case of rain, gorgeous setting for pictures and a little history. Carina, my coordinator, was wonderful. She was so organized and really helped guide the whole planning process. She was so sweet, too! I'm grateful for her help - the Casa Marina is lucky to have her! The food at Casa is AMAZING. Gourmet selections, beautiful presentation, and they are so flexible with your wants and needs. Dinner at most weddings consists of rubber meat and is just meh. Not here. The food (and drinks!) are to die for. The Casa Marina is not a cheap date. That said, it was worth every penny. My guests can't stop talking about it, and my husband and I are still in awe of how wonderful our wedding was. I want to get married at the Casa Marina again!!

Part 2- The options they have for the bars are very good and full of liquors of all types to please the taste of your different guests. We had people with different meal options like vegetarians, Gluten Free and specific allergies, for which we worked out all the menus based on this and they were extremely good to balance the Hours D'oeuvres, and plated dinner options. Everybody ate absolutely everything that was out on their plates or passed by, and if you have been at weddings, this does not always happen. All the comments after the wedding have been incredible, our guest were delighted at every event of our wedding. The wedding was supposed to be outdoors in the beach area but due to inclement weather we had to change this the day of our wedding, and they made it so smooth and pleasant for such a stressful day, and it's because these people are truly professional. Whichever activity you choose to do here, you can rely on their experience and knowledge. They won't make you make a decision against your initial plan, or idea unless it is an impending change. They will always have a backup plan for your event, in my case it was the Grand Ballroom. By the time we came back from the ceremony (which was held at a church, otherwise we would've done it here), we stopped by and went inside before our guests and it was ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! It was impressive that in such a short period of time with the other vendors that they could make it look like it was always planned to be in there. A big recognition to Chip Willis which is in charge of the lighting and did an marvelous job with the up lighting. This venue holds an experienced team that will make you feel like you are a family member, will do everything to please you, to make you feel so comfortable and confident that you will have your dream wedding, and also an amazing stay at their remarkable and astounding hotel. Forever thankful with Carina and her team!

SO many good things to say about this venue! TRULY PROFESSIONALS. If you are considering getting married in KW you MUST do it at Casa Marina. I barely had 3 months to plan our destination wedding as we had to move the date forward, I found this majestic hotel, I adored the beautiful settings and pictures of weddings there, but I fell in love with Carina Primus which is the Catering and Event Manager. She has the perfect temper and warm attitude for this job, every bride MUST have a person like her, and she is bilingüe. The food was amazing, and they prepared per my request a couple typical appetizers from my country that the chef had never prepared before and they were PERFECT and DELICIOUS. The food presentation is spectacular, the taste is delectable, well prepared, and exquisite, for real! We had 3 activities there for our wedding and they were all incredible and beyond expectations, comments from our guests. The staff and their attention is incredible!!! The options they have for the bars are very good and full of liquors of all types to please the taste of your different guests. We had people with different meal options like vegetarians, Gluten Free and specific allergies, for which we worked out all the menus based on this and they were extremely good to balance the Hours D'oeuvres, and plated dinner options.

I married the love of my life on December 10, 2016 at this majestic hotel and I can't say enough amazing things about Casa Marina, A Waldorf Astoria Resort in Key West Florida or the extraordinary people that work there. As every bride can attest planning a wedding is stressful, a long process, and overwhelming at times; but the staff at Casa Marina made this journey what became the best year of my life. I began my planning adventure meeting this beautiful soul called Carina Primus-Gomez (our wedding contact at Casa Marina) in the most scenic of places. I remember she received my parents and I with the warmest of greets showing us around this beautiful resort making us feel on that very first visit like we were already part of the Casa Marina family. That was what originally captured my attention. A beautiful resort will always be nice, but what makes a resort exceptional is extraordinary staff and Casa Marina has that everywhere you turn. From the very warm greets of the doormen, to Jessie the pool man who always made sure my husband and I had cold beverages in our hands and extra towels on our chairs, to David Lopez the VIP manager who made sure that our stay was nothing less than perfect, and of course I can’t leave out Carina who was with me from the start; who started out as my wedding contact and shortly became someone I can call a friend. I am thankful to have met every single one of them and can’t wait to revisit this magical place for many more years to come.

Carina was such a sweetheart to work with and our wedding at the Casa was flawless!! She made sure that our entire stay at the hotel was so special and that our wedding was beyond what we could have imagined it to be. I would highly recommend the Casa, especially because of Carina and the team who helped us create exactly the wedding we had dreamed of.

The Casa Marina is hands down the best venue in Key West for a wedding. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and amazing. Our guests are still talking about the beautiful location and several have mentioned that we had the best wedding food they've ever tasted. Key West was a destination wedding for us, and we looked at all of the major wedding venues. When we arrived at the Casa Marina we immediately realized it was the perfect spot just based on the beautiful venue and the food at the restaurant. But our wedding weekend exceeded even our high expectations. All of the staff at the Casa was phenomenal, especially Evelyn, our wedding contact. She was extremely responsive from our very first tour of the property and throughout the entire wedding planning process. On the day of the wedding she was there the entire time working with my day of planner to make sure our special day went perfectly. She even greeted us right after we walked down the aisle at the East Beach with champagne. We also met with the chef three days before our wedding to finalize the menu, and he was willing to make changes to dishes to accommodate our tastes. And the PSAV team was great to work with as well, showing us all of the lighting color options and being flexible about our A/V needs. It all led to a beautiful event. Our guests have raved about the cocktail hour and the reception. The Casa, Evelyn and PSAV did an incredible job, and our wedding weekend was magical. It is a high-end resort and the pricing reflects that, but the quality of food and service made it all well worth it. The Casa will forever hold a special place in our hearts and we look forward to returning there often to celebrate our anniversaries. Thank you Casa Marina for making our wedding one to remember!

Our wedding was gorgeous! Everyone can't stop talking about how amazing it was. The resort is stunning, the beach ceremony was perfect and the cocktail hour and reception were incredible. All the guest said the food was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Also, special shout out to Carina, she was so friendly, super quick in her responses and made the whole weekend the best weekend of our lives! Thank you Carina!!!

The Casa Marina is such a wonderful resort and I highly recommend it for any event. Just the resort itself is amazing but its staff is also just as amazing. The chef has the most amazing dishes, the wait staff is very attentive, and the even coordinator Carina is the best. We had our wedding here and all of our guest stayed the weekend at the Casa. Carina helped us plan every detail and took such good care of us while we were there. She was constantly checking in on us, our guest, and our events to make sure everything was running smoothly.

We were extremely pleased with the service and extraordinary attention provided by the Casa Marina staff for our wedding. Attention to detail was 2nd to none and everything was planned and executed flawlessly! The food service for our rehearsal dinner, wedding reception and Sunday brunch was spectacular, the best food offering we have ever experienced in our lives. And, the site selection for our wedding ceremony was gorgeous...right on the beach next to the water! And, perfect weather to boot! Highly recommended and reasonable for the service and quality provided...

We have never felt more pampered and accommodated in all of our travels and plans. The team was right there when needed and even checking in over the months of planning. I could not have done my planning from NJ without their help and recommendations of vendors to check out that were in our price range. They were spot on and I couldn't of been happier with their services during our wedding. We felt like royalty. Despite a change in staff during planning, the transition was seamless and even went above and beyond to help us with the final details of the day. They were always there to help us think bout the things we might have forgotten. Very easy to plan a wedding here and I am glad they have you hire a wedding coordinator for the day of the wedding - it was amazing to have both a coordinating team for the venue and then just one for the plans itself/day of. This is a 5 star venue and people are still talking about the food! They gave us the overall experience we were hoping for and made accommodations last minute when I moved cocktail hour inside due to hear concerns for guests. Say yes - splurge on this venue because it was simply amazing from the hotel accommodations, food, and service during out stay. Our guests even raved!

My husband and I decided to have our wedding at Casa Marina because we loved the beautiful property and it was always a special place for us. We had celebrated anniversaries and birthdays there, and enjoyed the fun atmosphere of Key West! Casa Marina and Carina met our expectations and some! Our wedding day turned out more perfect than we could have ever imagined and working with Carina was SO easy. I asked her many, many questions and she always got back to me right away no matter how small the question was. She made me feel confident that we had chosen the right venue and on the day of our wedding, I did not have to worry at all. Casa Marina and its staff is exceptional at hosting weddings and attending to anything that we wanted. The entire weekend went smoothly and we had over 100 guests staying on the property. The food was amazing as well as the service & staff. Our friends and family will be talking about this day for a long time and I would recommend Casa Marina to anyone! It was truly a special weekend for us and I have Casa Marina & Carina to thank for that!

My family and I recently stayed at Casa Marina for my Key West destination wedding. Although, we did not have our wedding at the resort (too pricey), we did have a great time staying at the resort for the week. The front desk staff was excellent, and Patrick was so helpful when we decided to upgrade to a suite. We told him we were staying there for our wedding, and he showed us a wonderful suite that would be available that was oceanfront. The suite was perfect and just what we needed to allow enough space for us to get ready for our wedding. The pool area was really nice and the pool staff was fabulous in helping us to get our chairs and umbrellas set-up. The only downfall was the restaurant staff. Everyone in our party had a difficult time getting service from the wait staff, especially if we were on the beach area. The drink servers never came around to ask if we wanted anything. It was our wedding trip, we would have paid the expensive drink prices to enjoy our time, but the server stood by the bar and never came by to ask anyone if they wanted a drink. (However, the pool staff was great about coming by with popsicles and such!) The bartenders were also great, but for some reason the wait staff service was poor. You may want to eat some place different, but overall, the resort was a great place to stay and one of the few hotels in Key West that has a decent size beach area.
