Holiday Inn Testimonials


You'll be glad you choose this Gem!

Im not the easiest person to impress and I can be very difficult to work with but this team delivered! The Holiday Inn Oceanfront was a great location to have our wedding in Miami Beach. The value, professionalism, and service was far more than I expected. The catering & restaurant staff were very friendly and personable, and if you live in Miami, you know thats not easy to find. I can truly say Monica Tafur and her team delivered an unforgettable experience to ensure that everything went smooth on this day from before our ceremony, which had to be moved indoors, to our reception. Monica was very pleasant and easy to work with and she truly made every effort to honor our requests. I know I pushed a lot of buttons when it came down to requests but one way or another she made it happen. We had a buffet style wedding and the food was by far, one of the best hotel foods Ive tasted. All 156 of our guests loved the food and could not stop talking about how good it was. I highly recommend the Holiday Inn Miami Beach Oceanfront if you want to have an amazing wedding. If your like me, you’ll think ten times before signing a contract but I promise you’ll be very surprised with this venue and all it has to offer.

Way above expectations!

The Holiday Inn absolutely blew our expectations away!! They were a pleasure to work with and made our wedding dream a perfect reality. I could not have asked for anything more. We had the entire event there from rehearsal dinner, the ceremony, reception, and day after brunch. The hotel catered everything and the food was AMAZING! They worked with us to create our ideal menu and created dishes off of the menu even for us. The hotel food exceeded our expectations not only at the tasting, but the entire weekend, and our guests’ as well. Monica Tafur was a pleasure to work with really went above and beyond following up on everything and making our crazy requests happen; she was awesome! The rooms and hotel grounds were perfect, we used the Four Points by Sheraton next door too. Our wedding was PERFECT!

Fabulous Wedding Venue

My wedding at the Holiday Inn Miami Beach was an amazing experience. Monica and her staff were a pleasure to work with. My beach ceremony had to be moved inside due to weather, and they made sure everything went smoothly and it was all completely stress free for me! I was able to just relax and enjoy the entire day. The grounds are beautiful for pictures! All my guests LOVED the food! We added an ice cream bar that was a huge hit with my guests too! The whole day turned out to be absolutely beautiful, and so much more than I could have ever imagined. This venue is also exceptional value for the money. It cost less than all the other venues I checked out, and I know it turned out to be the best one! I would highly recommend the Holiday Inn Miami Beach-Oceanfront for a beautiful, low-cost, amazing wedding experience!

Awesome facilities and staff and a beautiful beach at an incredible price!

My wife and I got married at the Holiday Inn Miami Beachfront last month and it was a fantastic wedding. Monica Tafur and her assistant Erica were amazing to work with and were a huge part of the success of the wedding. We visited over 20 beach locations from Key West to Deerfield Beach and the incredible value, beautiful facilities, and excellent staff at the Holiday Inn stood out from the crowd. The great staff and wonderful facilities made our decision easy and our wedding unforgettable. Neither my wife nor I were huge wedding planners, and we didn’t hire any outside “wedding planner”. Luckily for us, Monica kept us on point and made sure we secured all the right vendors and everything was considered and taken care of. On the day of, Monica once again took control and made sure the whole event ran smoothly from start to finish. The Fantasy Ballroom at the Holiday Inn is a great setting for the reception with an entire window wall facing out over the balcony, pool, and ocean from the second floor. The option to have an outdoor cocktail hour in the garden with tiki bar or in case of rain indoors in the foyer is an important consideration and our wedding day had a good bit of rain so we utilized this option and it worked out great. Even with rain showers before and after, Monica and her staff went with our decision to roll the dice and hold the wedding on the beach. Although it was a rainy day, the rain abated long enough for us to squeeze in our ceremony on the beach! If you are looking for a beach wedding, do yourself a favor and pay Monica a visit at the Holiday Inn. Thanks again for the wonderful wedding.

Suprisingly impressed!

We were very happy, surprised and impressed with this hotel. We did the ceremony and buffet dinner here, plus we stayed for the weekend. When I tell you everything was outstanding, it’s an understatement! This is by no means the Ritz, but if you’re on a budget, this place is it! It’s very nice (newly renovated) and the staff is outstanding. The food and drinks were delicious and there was tons of it! Beachfront ceremony got moved indoors, due to horrific weather and it was all seamless. Truly, it was a wonderful experience…we received tons of rave reviews…everyone was blown away by this “Holiday Inn”. Who would’ve thought?!? But I am so happy we gave them a chance! Great memories for years to come! (FYI- beachfront ceremony, buffet, open bar, 75 people (adults & children)

Words cannot describe how happy I was with the way everything turned out on our wedding day! Everything ran on time, the food was absolutely incredible (hats off to the chef), Monica (the event coordinator) was also exceptional, kept up to date info on all services and fees and ensured that our big day was exactly what we wanted. The Fantasy Ballroom was an extraordinary venue for our reception and our beach ceremony was absolutely beautiful as well! We had a fairly small wedding of 40 and had plenty of space to work with 🙂 highly recommend this venue! It has been renovated recently so when you walk in you won’t even notice it’s a holiday inn anymore. Exceptional! Thank you!My Fiance and I will always remember not only the proposal but the atmosphere, VIP treatment, and the beautiful Hotel that made it the WOW moment. We are considering getting married there as well.

Monica tafur was great , she accommodated all my needs . Iam very happy with everything and everyone that helped to make my event a very special day!

Monica Tafur and the entire staff at the Holiday Inn and Sheraton Four Points went out of their way to make my daughter’s wedding weekend the most perfect event. They were so accomodating as to purchase tiki lights and rent av equipment, at the last minute. The rental company just dropped off the overlays and chair covers and sashes, and the Holiday Inn just took care of it. Monica was there taking care of everything as if we had hired her for our wedding planner. She just wanted everything as perfect as we did.

We are on the groom’s side, we were responsible for the rehearsal dinner. We did a BBQ on the Green between the hotel pools. It was a absolutely beautiful setting. We had portabelo mushrooms, burgers, veggie burgers and pulled pork. All of the menu items were delicious. We had adults and children from age of five to ninety, everyone loved the food. The dessert bar was great. It was a perfect evening.

Great venue! Especially for the price. Food was excellent. Staff was great!

I enjoyed my wedding day, I enjoyed my wedding day, I enjoyed my wedding day, I enjoyed my wedding day

Monica was open to what we wanted even if she had not done it like that before. She gave good suggestions and was always open. The food was great and the feel was just what we wanted.

Monica is great. The venue exceed expectations. Would do it all over again.
