"A hidden gem in San Diego! I love working with the Island Palms because the service is stellar, the support is ample and there are no surprises… They don’t take advantage of couples like other venues might, with ridiculous wedding “up-charges” and hidden requirements or fees. In my experience, their marketing materials are straightforward and comprehensive, with reasonable event packages and a number of fun perks. The location is fabulous. Also, the upgraded rooms are both spacious and well-equipped (with ample outlets and mirrors!) – checking all the “boxes” for bridal parties and out-of-town guests.
I had the pleasure of working with Lauren Miller (Sales and Conference Service Team) on my most recent event at Island Palms and her performance was impeccable. She was friendly, resourceful and extremely helpful and she made sure her team was ready for the big day we had planned!
Here’s a BIG shout-out to Lauren and her coworkers for keeping my clients happy, and for giving an event planner (like me) some much-needed peace of mind." - WeddingWire.com
