We spent four days at Flor de cabrera for our wedding this past October, and I don't know if I even have the words to convey how amazing our experience was. To begin with, the accomodations and location are absolutely breath-taking. With a 10-room villa sitting ocean-front on a cliff over a semi-private beach, what's there not to like? The experience was like feeling like a rich person for a weekend. The rooms are large and tastefully decorated, with amazing ocean views. The property itself is laid out beautifully, with a large, resort-like pool (with jacuzzi) in the center, surrounded by gorgeous tropical flowers and trees. There are several sitting areas in little nooks around the property, where you can sit in solace to take in the fantastic ocean and beach views. And I loved the coral side-walls on the steps leading down to the beach. The villa owners did a great job putting this place together.
On top of all that, the personal, attentive service provided by the villa staff was superb. These guys work very, very hard to make sure you are happy. They truly cater to your every whim, from breakfast in the morning, until the last person goes to sleep at night. You get your meals prepared by your personal chef - hey Lubin! :) - and I can tell you that all of the meals, especially our wedding dinner, were magnificent! We have guests still raving over the rosemary potatoes, the pumpkin soup, the steak, the lobster, the chicken ... I could go on and on. For our wedding weekend, the staff not only handled the on-site needs of our villa guests, but also arranged outside services like massages (highly recommended), music and dance entertainment (the beach bonfire with merengue demonstration and lessons was so much fun), and on-site hair and make-up services for the bridal party. They also arranged and coordinated transportation to the center of town and other local beaches as well as handling evening & wedding day transportation between Flor de Cabrera & a local hotel (Hotel Catalina, also excellent) for our overflow guests. Between the villa and the hotel, we had 50 wedding guests that weekend with three nights of events at the villa, and the staff handled all of this flawlessly.
Most importantly, anybody who has or is going through planning a wedding knows how stressful the experience can be and how much you want everything to turn our perfectly. Because of all the hard work of the Flor de Cabrera staff and the Bella Epoca Events team, our wedding turned out even better than we could have ever imagined. It truly felt like a magical event, with the flag banners, the table settings, the amazing floral centerpieces, the lovely beach set up ... All I know is that every time I look at my pictures and think back to that weekend, I will have amazingly beautiful memories that you simply cannot put a price on. And all of our guests feel the same way. I am so glad we found Flor de Cabrera when we were looking for a place to have our wedding, and I am ecstatic over how everything turned out. Thanks FDC and Bella Epoca!
