“Thank you again”

We just had our wedding here at oaks over the weekend and wanted to leave some feedback, we had the absolute best time here and so did all of our guests. Everyone commented on how absolutely beautiful everything was and how the whole day went so smoothly . All of the staff here are amazing from the front desk/reception to the bar staff and everyone else that we had the pleasure of meeting this weekend. Our biggest thank you goes to Maria Avelin!! She deserves a pay rise for all she done. She went above and beyond to ensure our big day all went to plan . Every single guest said how amazing she was throughout the whole night and i myself have been speaking with her for the last few months leading up to the day and she just made everything so easy . Our guests absolutely loved her and so did we . She is an absolute star and we hope this feedback reaches her. You are very lucky to have someone like her working here. We have stayed here at the resort in the past but for our guests this was their first time here and they all cant wait to return. We are all planning a trip back together because we had an absolute blast!...
