Incredible views, great service, delicious food, free golf, and wonderful entertainment, all at a very affordable price. What's not to love? We have gone back for four weekend getaways already this year.

The friendly waitress brought us a cutting board full of little treats, and they even piped in chocolate a special message for us on the desert plate. We stayed in one of the suites,... More

This is a huge operation, with a grandeur about it that is impressive, many rooms and wings, vast expanses of views, including of the golf course, good service, spotlessly clean, including acres of carpeting, and ALMOST perfect. But the maintenance seems to be just a tad behind. Our sink wouldn't hold water (because of a missing O ring) and we... More

My wife, mother in law and two sons stayed at the Samoset Resort over April vacation. From the time we checked in until the time we checked out the service was impeccable. The staff was friendly, helpful and very accommodating. We were at dinner and my two teenage boys wanted to watch the Celtics playoff game. The staff made sure... More

A quick spring getaway to relax, golf, use the health club, enjoy great food and cocktails was "5 star" the entire weekend. In addition to the above experiences, EVERY employee we met and chatted with couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. Don't miss the Saturday Breakfast Buffet and/or the Sunday Brunch-AMAZING. An added bonus was a very affordable package... More
