This hotel was wonderful. We stayed in the lobster lodge room which was further up away from the water but still had a great view of the pool and the cove. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The curtains and carpet as well as the actual building were a bit outdated looking but that didn't matter ver much. We... More

The smuggler's cove inn, now under the new name of The Sunset Beach Resort is the "best kept secret in Maine!" The rooms are cozy with fantastic views. It is so tranquil and peaceful there. The staff is friendly and willing to help, they even let us switch rooms so we could be closer to our friends who were also... More

We decided to try Sunset Beach (new name) because of a Groupon offer. It was a most adequate hotel at a reasonable price. The view from the balcony is amazing and the staff very friendly and helpful. Our balcony door was off the rail and I called and someone arrived to fix it within a minute! Linens and towels appear... More

Lovely laid back atmosphere. Beautiful views, breezes & sunsets. Zach the house manager was super friendly & accommodating. Affordable sailing lessons available on site. Super relaxing stay. Will definitely return.

Although the room does have a nice view, it was shabby and dirty. Don't expect to find an outlet that is easily accessible. I had to crawl under furniture to find one. The bed was hard as a rock. There is a narrow climb to the second floor. It's a long drive down to this property in the dark. The... More

This is a great place to stay away from the craziness of the harbor. Rooms are large with your own balconies. The view is beautiful and offers both an ocean swim and a pool swim. We would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

Very nice but extremely simple little resort. The staff and manager (Andre) are very accomodating and kind. The complimentary continental breakfast is almost nonexistent but is made for with the small private beach and pool.
