Hotel & Villa Recommendations


Hurricane Irma & Hurricane Maria had devastating effects on our islands. Two Category 5 hurricanes within the span of two weeks was truly unprecedented and heartbreaking. However, as each day goes by, the islands become more and more green. The beaches still have white sands, the water is still that gorgeous turquoise blue. The islands will return better than ever. We realize that many hotels have suffered damage and will take a while to rebuild. This obviously has an effect on many weddings. We have worked hard to put together a list of accommodations that will be open in 2018 for you to share with your guests.
