Wedding Venue Client Reviews

  • "It was very frustrating to try and find a venue and we visited at least a dozen facilities, probably more, looking for everything that we wanted. We found it at Marbella Country Club. My wife and I were very impressed and we both got the feeling that they just wanted to help us have the best day that we could. On the day of the wedding, everything went amazingly smooth and my wife and I had a perfect day to remember. Overall, I would highly recommend Marbella Country Club for the beautiful venue and impeccable service."
    Very Impressed
  • "There are no words to describe how romantic and heavenly my wedding was at this breath taking venue. They replied to every single of question with such a cool and soothing manne and made my life easier in one of the most stressful times of my wedding. They accommodated us for our traditional Persian wedding andthe food was amazing. even better than tasting day. The appetizers were served non-stop and there was no one complaining about the quality or amount of it. The staff were super professional and friendly on the day with all of our guests. if i had the chance to have a second wedding, I would not change a bit of it. ."
