Just loved Oceano for our wedding!

5/ 5

Love! The Oceano, I believe, is the best location to get married at in and around Half Moon Bay. They are reasonably priced, especially since their cost includes food, tables, chairs, and linens (if you selected theirs). They also have other items that you can use like cocktail tables and wedding design details. You also have the option of getting married at their beach location, in their ballroom, or in their garden. You also can pick to have your reception in their ballroom or in their outside tent (it has heaters if it is cold!) We chose to have our wedding in the garden and then our reception in the tent. We had our wedding in early October and the weather was absolutely beautiful! At the Oceano, we had the joy of working with Nancy. She is phenomenal! We met a few times months in advance and stayed in contact via email. During the last month or so we contacted her weekly and she was easy to reach, extremely helpful in meeting all our last minute requests, and made sure our stay was calm and relaxing. As for the hotel, the rooms might be a little pricey, but well worth it. Each space has a spa like atmosphere. Per the food at the wedding, some of the best I have eaten. We chose a sit down meal and they served each table quickly and at the same time. I still have guests telling me how much they loved their food. If you are looking for a beach wedding, at a good price, with helpful people, great food and space then the Oceano is perfect. I cannot express how much I loved our venue and Nancy. You will not be sorry if you pick the Oceano, we are not!

Every detail perfect

5/ 5

My Husband and I recently got married at Oceano Half Moon Bay Sunday September 8th, 2013. I have loved this hotel since the year it opened! I used to be in the special events industry, and worked a few weddings at Oceano in years past. Nancy, the Special Events Manager is AMAZING! She has always made my Husband and I feel like Oceano is a home away from home. Her assistant Jen is also so sweet and amazing! From the front of the house, to the lounge staff, house keeping, and banquet staff, Oceano has impeccable service! Nancy told me she was surprised that out of all of the places I had done weddings and events before, that I chose Oceano for our own wedding. Really, there was not a second thought to this, Nancy and the Oceano staff, not to mention the site’s natural beauty, made it our first and only acceptable choice for our big day! Knowing all that could go wrong on a wedding day from personal experience of planning over 200 weddings in my career, it says a lot that I was comfortable and confident in Nancy and the Oceano team taking care of our big day. Our wedding was a platinum wedding, chalked full of wedding professionals and tiny details, but everything went perfectly. They worked hand in hand with us and our wedding consultant to make sure that everything was planned to perfection, and executed with ease. The rooms at the hotel are beautifully appointed and have the most comfortable beds! We were so proud to have our families stay here, it made us feel like we were hosting them in our own beautiful home. We had our ceremony in the wedding garden overlooking the pier, cocktails on the lawn, and dinner in their huge tent! The food was out of control good! The bartenders were fast. The service staff attentive. We couldn’t ask for more! What a dream wedding!!!! Oceano will always be our special place, we can’t wait to visit again! We love you Nancy and Oceano team!

The best!

5/ 5

The Oceano hotel is the best place to have a wedding! We got to have the ceremony in the garden, cocktails in an already set up tent, reception in the ballroom, and dancing in the atrium! The wedding coordinators there are the best! Nancy was always easy to get a hold of & more than happy to work with us on anything we wanted. She made our wedding day dreams come true! Being a beach town you have to get used to a bit of a slower pace, but don’t let it stress you out if you are more of a fast paced bide like me. Just enjoy the relaxing vibe, everything gets done perfectly in the end.
