"A fantastic wedding location"

We were invited to attend the wedding of a very dear friend and were not disappointed with what we discovered at this gem of a place. 
The drive from Almeria airport takes about an hour, but the stunning scenery is worth the drive.

The variety in accommodation adds to the uniqueness of this wonderful resort and whilst I am no golfer, you can see how much effort dedication and love is placed on ensuring that golfer's at every level are given the best facilities and resources.

The staff are so friendly, helpful and eager to ensure that everything is as you would like it to be.

The wedding we attended was absolutely fabulous with a ceremony on the lawn outside the club house and the reception and evening festivities taking place in the club house. Stunning, is the only word to describe the location. 
My daughter was bridesmaid to the stunning bride and what a fabulous time we had. 

I must at this point mention Ellie (Duty Manager), her attention to detail, her professionalism and her "nothing is too much trouble" attitude shone as brightly as her smile. Ellie you are an asset to this wonderful resort. 

I should also add here that every member of staff was absolutely fabulous in their endeavours that ensure that we had the best possible time.

We will definitely return to Desert Springs. 

Congratulations to you all.

Following his 60th birthday celebrations:

“Jan and I would like to thank you most sincerely for the magnificent weekend of celebrations for my 60th birthday. The parties were a wonderful success and the feedback from guests has been hugely praiseworthy of the organisation, the quality of food, wines and cava and the whole ambience of the evening party at the Cave and then the sangria and paella at our house on the Sunday.

Your contribution was immense and full credit to all the Desert Springs staff involved. The idea of a sherry pourer showing off his skills, a local singer and Spanish guitarist in the background at the Crocodile Club terrace and then the walk down to the Cave to see all the candlelit tables laid out was enchanting.

Your ideas for the whole weekend, including encouraging us to taste all the planned food and wines and cavas before selection were first class and then the execution of the events, with Ellie's charming efficiency and Daniel and Steve's participation, made for an occasion to remember.

It was a credit to Desert Springs and you sent all our overseas visitors, many of whom were visiting for the first time, back home thoroughly impressed. Many, many thanks.”

The resort is proving to be a popular choice of venue for Spanish wedding celebrations

Weddings in Spain

Here are the experiences of the couple featured in the photos.

Annabel Grove (31) previously of Cheltenham in Gloucestershire and her Italian fiancé Daniel Di Domenico (34) who lives just outside Rome had enjoyed family holidays there in the past and they saw Desert Springs as the ideal place for a wedding reception, which turned into what Annabel's mother, Lone, describes as "a four-day party."

Lone's father, the Reverend Julian Dawes – a retired vicar – performed an evening wedding blessing ceremony in the open-air on the Observation Terrace at the Crocodile Club. The club is located at the heart of the Desert Springs resort in an authentic African longhouse thatched with reed from Africa.

"As the sun set, the blessing was lit by romantic candle-light," recalls Lone. "Then local Spanish dancers entertained us as we enjoyed poolside drinks in the warm evening air. The wedding supper inside the atmospheric longhouse was followed by dancing in the Rondavel at the Crocodile Club."

Annabel, who works with the UN's World Food Programme, and Daniel, who runs an antique business in Rome, agreed that, although Italy currently is considered one of the most desirable locations to host a wedding, the Almanzora region of Almeria was the perfect location for them. Says Annabel: "Desert Springs was able to cater for all our unusual requirements, helping us to create a romantic candlelit service in the open air conducted by my grandfather against a backdrop of mountains and a glorious sunset.

"Staff at Desert Springs were very accommodating, helping us to decide on wedding supper menus during a dinner party with friends earlier in the year. The chefs were open to all sorts of suggestions about food from different cultures.

Daniel's fears that there might be problems finding enough local accommodation for more than 60 wedding guests travelling from Italy and the UK were unfounded. He says: "Not only was Desert Springs able to take care of all of them in its Lodge accommodation – individual luxury villas and apartments on the resort – but the region's special year-round climate meant that the organisers were more or less able to guarantee warm dry weather. Although situated on the Spanish coast, the region is uniquely influenced by the North African desert conditions just across the Mediterranean.

"Those who attended the wedding really enjoyed the fact that they could make a mini-holiday of their weekend in a luxury resort. Friends have commented that, contrary to the typical one-day event, the weekend together meant everybody was involved in the wedding on a more personal basis."

Weddings in Spain, blessings and other celebrations at Desert Springs are planned on a bespoke basis so the costs involved depend on requirements, guest numbers and the number of properties required to accommodate them. In addition, careful planning with the resort's personal events co-ordinator means that a lot of fun can be added to a celebration at relatively little cost.

Following the wedding of Meg McLellan and Mark Zalewski, with the Wedding Ceremony held on the Observation Deck at the Crocodile Club and the Reception at El Torrente, Desert Springs.
