I have stayed all over the world, and to say the staff here is the worst of them all, is an understatement. Once you are there, you are at their mercy. They are nowhere to be found, the restaurant is never open, and the facility is falling apart. Boards on the deck were literally giving way. Not to mention the... More

Just returned from our wedding on Blacks island. This place is incredible.What a bargain for a wedding, the catering was amazing and The hosts and staff were very friendly. If you are looking for the ultimate place for a beach wedding this is it.sunsets, friends,island time,and somehow there is still privacy.cant wait to return for our first anniversary. Russell

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
