Attended my niece's wedding everything ran perfect. Rehearsal party was a hit food and service exceptional. Played golf on a course that was in great condition and views of the ocean were magnificent. Wedding went off without a hitch. Pool was great play area for kids was spectacular. Highly recommend for a couple or a family plenty for either option.

For its price, I expected a bit more but not much more.. read below. The rooms: Our room was nicely equipped and fairly up to date. We... More

We just returned from 4 nights at the Samoset with our two children and we look forward to returning in the future. The staff is exceptional - friendly, courteous and helpful at all times and across all departments. The grounds are beautifully maintained and great fun.

Dear Srbolt, Your review was such a pleasure to read. It seems your family packed in every activity imaginable while you were here: horseshoes, lawn golf, croquet, disc golf, the heated outdoor and indoor pools, Wii and Xbox games, plus fabulous meals in La Bella Vita. I am certain that the adults in your group must’ve needed some naps along... More

We arrived in early June to spend 2 nights to celebrate our joint birthdays. When Mr Russell realized it was our celebration we were upgraded to a cottage on the shore. What a magnificent surprise!

Nice resort. The rooms are a little old but the beds are great. Nice restaurant, where you can dine or breakfast inside or outside weather permitting. The wine list is a little limited to Italian and American wines, but good value. The golf course is a gem, as well as its staff.

We have summered in Maine and this was our first stay at Samoset. We had heard about the resort from friends who purchased a timeshare and raved. The property offers everything-waterfront views, golf, tennis, indoor/outdoor pools and a spa. It also has a really good restaurant with fantastic outdoor seating and headlamps! The restaurant and bar were really lively on... More

I have very mixed feelings about the Samoset. In some ways it was a great hotel, in others it was extremely lacking. Truth be told, I would stay there again as it is the best hotel/resort in the area but there is room for improvement. I will start with the positives - the staff was terrific. The front desk and...

Just had the best experience! The resort is drop-dead gorgeous, La Bella Vita was delicious and the staff was gracious and charming. Bellman Matt was a total sweetheart to my wheelchair bound friend, squiring her to the Craft Fair like a queen. Bliss all around.
