Wedding Testimonials

Words cannot describe how HAPPY we were with the Newport! From the moment we had our tour with  the AMAZING Natalie, we went right out to the pier which was exactly what my husband and I were going for completely different, and the absolute most perfect place to say I DO!! You feel like your in the middle of the ocean and there is literally just you and him at the end, so incredibly magical. Then we went to the ballroom which of course over looks the ocean it was just heaven. I wish we could re-do that day over and over again. The food is by far not the BEST wedding food I have ever had! The staff at this hotel is the best I have ever seen, they all went above and beyond to make our weekend a HUGE success. The Newport occasions team Natalie, Pam, & Abby, are the MOST INCREDIBLE TEAM!! We cannot forget Vladimir who helps run the show the day of the wedding!! Their communication with each other and with us was open and honest through the entire process. My husband and I would highly, highly recommend this incredible venue and team! We have created a lifetime of friendship with this team and we are forever grateful for everything they did for us!!


I am so happy to celebrate my wedding at the Newport Beachside Hotel! They have been very helpful, especially the wedding team (Abby and Pat) they make you feel comfortable and make arrangements so you can have the wedding of your dreams!! Plus the hotel is beautiful, in front of the beach and great location. 

Can't wait for my wedding next summer! 

Thanks :)

I had a wonderful once in a lifetime experience,thanks to Pamela and staff my wedding was a success! Pamela with over and beyond to make my special day a great experience for me and my family.the hotel is a beautiful place to have your wedding and the price for the vendor was a affordable amount to have a beautiful wedding!


Pam Presley and the Catering Manager and staff were awesome!!! We had a beautiful beach wedding! Exactly how we envisioned it!!! Thank you so much for making our day so memorable!


Everyone involved in the McBride/Cunningham wedding at Newport Beachside Hotel were soooooooo great! They catered to our every need and made sure our special day went smoothly! Tammy Mamalamud was great at everything she did. Vladimir Michel was the banquet manager. He went above and beyond to make us and our guest have a great time. Kimberly Abbott works in the HR department at the hotel, but she was also our officiant. If anyone needs a wedding officiant I would recommend her. She was sincere and unique when it came to our wedding. She also stayed with us after the ceremony to make sure we were enjoying our reception. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day. Everything was perfect. I give everyone at the hotel 5 stars.


When it comes to a wedding anything that can go wrong usually will. Pamela and her staff were so helpful with ensuring that everything I imagined my wedding to be actually was. Even with the snow storm grounding most of our guests causing last minute changes things still looked perfect.


Newport Beachside is such a beautiful resort! From the first time we saw the place we knew we wanted to have our wedding! Tammy was amazing! She made me feel like we had been friends forever! She always answered my calls and emails right away and helped me with all my decisions along the way! The day of the wedding she was a gift from god! She made sure my ceremony, my reception, and everything in between was perfect! And it certainly was! My guest raved about how beautiful the resort was, how friendly the staff was, and how amazing my wedding was! I am so glad we choose Newport Beachside!

Newport Beachside Resort & Spa did an incredible job on my wedding. I worked with Pamela, she was an absolute delight. She helped me plan out the wedding with the vision I had in mind. The entire staff is responsive and attention oriented. Absolutely happy with the outcome and price!


Pam was awesome & went above and beyond to help me. My dad had a stroke 2 months before my wedding and I was very stressed but Pam eased my worries and handled everything. All of my family and friends were so impressed with the venue, food and service. I don't know if I could've done it without all her help.


Pamela was amazing and totally attentive to our wants and needs. The day couldn't have been better with her and also Vladimir. They both went above and beyond and were professional and made everything on our big day worry free and made our guests and our children feel special. Thank you for making our big day our dream come true!! We love you and will continue to visit yearly!!!!


Abby was amazing! She made me feel so comfortable from day one. I was able to tell her exactly what was on my mind. We had great communication. We had an amazing wedding at the Newport!! I love the style and is exactly what my husband and I were looking for


I had the wedding of my dreams! I highly recommend to do weddings here!

Thank you Abby!


Tammy was our wedding coordinator at this hotel and she was unbelievably helpful. The wedding was beautiful!


Beautiful venue location. My family had a valentine's day event there as well earlier this year and it was beautiful. The space is comfortable. Not to mention you have different room spaces to choose from. In my case everything will be done in the same location so I get to use almost all the rooms. Pam, who is head of catering is great. Reasonable, down to the point and will do all that is possible to assist in the best ways possible. I can't wait to get married there next year. I'm sure God willing it's going to be nothing short of amazing.


Pamela Presley went over and beyond the called of duty to ensure our day was the dream we had planned. She was very attentive to our needs and offered quick solutions to our problems. We truly appreciate the superb service and the excellence food my guest is still talking about today. Many of my guests said "The food at Newport Beachside was absolutely the BEST food we have ever eaten from a buffet table or plated meal during an event.

We married in the Atlantis Mezzanine at 6:30pm on July 5, 2014. The Mezzanine has beautiful views of the ocean, palm trees, and the new pier; and the Atlantis Ballroom was very spacious for our reception of over 100 ​dancing and partying ​guests (including energetic toddlers!). 

The service we received was second to none! Everyone from Cedric in ​v​alet who greeted us timely and with a smile to Monica at the front desk who gleefully upgraded our room to accommodate our large, blended family, to the servers in Kitchen 305 where I kicked off my Bachelorette Party​ (organized by Therese Yelder. Thanks, girl)​! Michelle Theodule and her staff, including Val & Winston were impeccably professional in handling all of our family's reservations and their check-ins. Our accommodations were clean, up to date, and we received fantastic service from Jameson and the Bellmen when we moved from our room to our beautiful Honeymoon Suite (the view is to DIE for!)

It was also great that our family and friends were able to enjoy the beach, the cabanas, and the pier to see fireworks on the Fourth of July!

As far as wedding staff goes, I can't hug Tammy Malamud and Pamela Presley hard enough for their personal, professional (and VERY patient) handling of this crazed bride! They were available to my fiance and I via email or phone. The Newport has an extensive list of reputable and talented vendors, such as Keenography( Photographers), Event Decorating Academy (decor), Saxophonist Jon Saxx, DJ Big Ben and Ana Paz Cakes,all of which our guests raved about! And speaking of food, Tammy and Chef George were very accommodating with our Traditional Caribbean food requests, and our guests LOVED the food!!! 

Our wedding was perfect, and we thank the Newport Beachside from the bottom of our hearts for helping make it the best memory of our lives!

Mr. & Mrs. Wes Madhere

We were originally hoping to host our wedding weekend in the Upper Keys (FL) but in dealing with many of the locations down there, found them to be overpriced and less than responsive to our booking needs. So when I found Newport Beachside, and specifically Pamela Presely (Director of Catering) we quickly changed our minds and moved forward in planning our November 8th wedding here! From the moment we first visited - to check it out - we felt like we were "on vacation" (even though we live locally!) and that was the feel we wanted for our guests; esp. those traveling from out of town - so when the contract came back with everything Pamela had promised, we knew this was our place! But we also didn't want to taste the food for the first time at our tasting, since they'll make sure all is well then, so we dined in the restaurant one night, "incognito" and the food was wonderful...that was a Saturday, and we booked our event on Monday! Pamela made everything VERY easy, helping even in areas she was not responsible for, and the banquet and catering staff we interacted with before, during and even after the event, were outstanding! I can't provide enough positive feedback about all of them - especially Vlad (Banquet Manager) Conrad (Lead Banquet Server) and Rhonda (bartender - who didn't even know who we were on one visit, and started mixing drinks at the Tiki Bar to get just the right color of blue for our signature drink!) The entire team took excellent care of us and our guests! We had banquet events both Friday (Welcome Reception) and Saturday afternoon/evening (Beach Ceremony/Cocktail Hour/Dinner Reception) and our guests described both as "the best they had ever attended" thanks, not only to Pamela's help in planning, but also to the excellent food and service they received! The chef and his team stepped out of the box and created recipes for menus that I had provided (not their pre-planned offerings) and everything was so good, my guests wanted recipes!
