The island was beautiful and the bungalows are stunning. They offered an amazing view of the water and sunset. We had a great time scalloping and using the paddle boards. In the end we felt it was extremely overpriced and felt we would have had just as much fun had we gone with the cheaper option we were looking into... More

Island is beautiful. Bungalows are spacious and lovely. Resort itself, though, feels like an afterthought. Owners are nice but when paying elite- level prices, it needs to be reflected in the resort's customer service and amenities. Discrepancy between cost of stay and what you're getting is huge. Staff was scarce to almost comic proportions. Garbage littered the island, which I... More

We recently stayed at Black's Island and went scalloping and LOVED IT!! We couldn't have asked for nicer people to take care of us and nicer accommodations! If you want to make some great memories with your family and friends and have a relaxing blast doing it this is the place to go! Thanks Jeff, Wanda and crew!

Everything at Blacks Island Resort was near Perfect. I could have stayed for months, plenty to do, great food. Beautiful skies at night. The bungalows are awesome, lots of time put into the custom woodwork. Not a bad view from any window. Very luxurious. The beds were fantastic. Wanda and Jeff, very attentive and just great people through and through!... More

We stayed for 2 nights June 2013. Mapquest tried to send us to the wrong place but I spotted the sign for the parking lot. The captain was waiting for us and carried our luggage to the boat. The whole time we were there the management went out of their way to ask if we needed anything. It is very... More

I was surprised with this weekend trip. I had no idea where we were going; I was told only not to wear a dress the first day because we were getting on a boat. From the moment we pulled into the drive, I felt taken care of. No pretense, just absolute dedication to giving you a unique experience. From the... More

Black's Island was our choice for family vacation this year. We will definitely make it our vacation spot again next year. This was the most peaceful place I have ever seen. I could lay in the hammock forever and just look out into the ocean. The staff, Jeff, Wanda, Pat and Tiffany, was very attentive and accommodating to our every... More

We heartily recommend Black's Island. The staff goes out of their way to help you enjoy your visit; the bungalows are clean, comfortable and have great views of sunrise or sunset. When we entered Bungalow #10, it smelled like cedar. We had no issues with the unit. The food was the best we have had anywhere. Try the grilled shrimp!... More

From the moment the boat picked us up, to the moment it dropped us off, we were catered to like we the only ones on the island. Riley the Island Dog greeted us at the dock and other staff greeted us with smiles in the clubhouse. The food was excellent with proper proportions and very tasty. The bungalows were clean... More

Our military reunion of 32 adults was hosted by my husband and myself on Black's Island in mid-September. The Island is stunning and beautifully kept by the proprietors, Jeff and Wanda, along with their staff, Patrick and Tiffany. There is a moderately sized beach,westerly facing for sunsets, and a pristine pool and sundeck furnished with lounges and large umbrellas. Kayaks,... More
