    Beautiful Resort Feel

    We chose the Cove for ease of planning, location and the resort feel.

    Pros:Cove supplies/sets up chairs, tables, linens at the ceremony site and reception areas, this relieves a lot of stress /saves time for clothe couple and who ever is helping you. They are flexible with design requests. Excellent day of service & super tasty food.All round Beautiful and relaxing resort feel. Each unit is spacious, has a hideabed in living area and has a kitchen and balcony. Each one I saw was beautiful and different. All views are nice! We were able to have family get togethers in each room with plenty of space- seating inside and out. Gellaty nut farm literally right beside. We didn’t leave the area for photos. We feel our time was maximized here with no running around. Perfect for small kids too. Bar staff excellent!

    Cons:Some hidden service fees w plated meals, 3 day min to stay at resort- lots of our guests stayed elsewhere but we would have loved everyone in one location. The pictures in brochure/website do not directly reflect what’s included in the fee, for example the pictures show up graded chairs/linens and personal table numbers (chairs and table numbers are supplied) This just adds an unexpected cost if you’re particular about the design side.

    Best experience!!

    We hosted our reception here at the Cove. Terry Pritchett was so so helpful. He was very responsive and very accommodating to what we wanted. He gave us a great deal. We had a lot of our guests stay at the hotel for a discount and everyone felt spoiled during their stay. The grand room was transformed with stringed lighting (we put up ourselves), long tables with greenery and candles everywhere. Our wedding was 110 and it fit everyone perfectly and felt so cozy. Food was amazing. I have no regrets about our decision!!! I just wish I could relive the day!
