Oheka Castle has to be one of the most beautiful locations on the Island. Stunning in many ways, the grand entrance, beautiful foyers, manicured gardens. It is also a dream come true for a newlywed couple to be married. That said, it is not the place to stay if you are not part of the wedding party. My wife and I booked the room to be treated poorly by the staff who was ambivalent to non-wedding party guests. Visiting the lounge before dinner, the bar staff was busy making preparations for the reception and ignored us. Returning from dinner offsite, there was no valet available to take your car (valet required). After dropping my wife off at the door, I drove down the hill to park the car only to be challenged by the valet (who had to get items for the wedding party) that parking requires valet, even if they are not there (Really?). The wedding celebration lasted until after 2 am in the morning with the music shaking our 3rd floor bedroom walls. Having an early departure, when we shared our disappointing (and expensive) experience, the manager on duty said "too bad" and that they normally advise guests in advance and it was an oversight that we were not informed. No concern or apology. Very sad,disappointing, and unprofessional management and staff for such a grand location Breathtaking venue, ambivalent and disconnected staff to non-wedding party guests. Be sure you ask if they have a wedding reception scheduled......in advance.
