We stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful time even though we didn't play golf. There are so many activities. We played frisbie golf (great course), bean bags, rope toss, horseshoes, shuffleboard. My husband took a fitness class. We walked to the lighthouse. Other activities were basketball, tennis, boce ball , indoor and outdoor pool. The rooms are... More

Overall the Samoset was just fantastic. We just spent 4 amazing days there. The Room, Food and Service were all outstanding and in line with what you'd expect from a beautiful resort like the Samoset. From the moment you drive in, past the beautifully manicured golf course to reach the front of the hotel you really feel like you are... More

As always, our stay at Samoset was excellent. The staff is both friendly and inviting. The location is beautiful, and there is lots to do. Around the pool, there are many games for the kids, as well as a gorgeous view of the water and golf course. There are many dining locations to choose from, all which are great. The... More

Wife and I spent our 10 year anniversary there and it was great. We wish we could have spent more time exploring. The golf cart tour was great because we learned about other islands we should explore next time. Golf was great, got paired up with a member who was very nice. The only downside was that their beer selection... More

Beautiful property,comfortable room and bed. Restaurant was great. Big problem here is untrained staff. Front desk girls were going to call when room was ready. I checked back after 4:30pm and room was ready but they just forgot-no apology just forgot. That evening the two young hostesses working the restaurant check in couldn't find my reservation. It was one I... More

We visited in August and enjoyed our stay. We had an ocean view room; the view over the golf course was amazing. The bathroom and the room needed some updating. For the price, the decor and bathrooms (while very clean) felt dated. The pool facility was lovely and my husband loved the golf course. Great for families, with large rooms... More

This is such a special place. The setting is perfection and somewhat reminds me of Pebble Beach in California. The resort is situated on the ocean and offers stunning golf course/ocean views. The rooms are spacious and well done. We ended up getting the same server at the restaurant and pool - Shyan. She was AWESOME!! We had a large... More
