My best friend and I stayed at the Rosario for a wedding. Gorgeous location and we loved the separate pool for the families/kids and those 21+. I felt the price was high for the room (double queen). It is a bit rundown and they really need to renovate badly. Our room smelled very mildew with dirty carpet. Not wise to... More

The setting is what gives Rosario an edge over other places. We went with our two kids and another family with two kids. As a couple of other reviewers have said, it's a beautiful setting, with the marina at your doorstep, and generally good facilities. Some parts look like they need refurbishing and the reception staff need friendliness training. The... More

This is our second time staying at Rosario, and not much has changed in the 8 years between visits. The setting is beautiful and there are deer grazing right outside your room. The room is clean but could use some sprucing up. We used the pool one day and it was just a basic pool with nothing extra. You definitely... More

We recently spent 8 nights sailing from Seattle to Friday Harbor. Rosario Marina was our favorite stop. The convenient dock leads right up to the Cascade Bar and Grill. We had both lunch and dinner there and found the food good, prices reasonable and staff very friendly. We had the same waitress for lunch and dinner and felt very well... More

If you don't trip over the cracks in the sidewalk or fall into the non-functioning, dried-up fountains, the scenery is beautiful. The resort as a whole is rundown and the grounds are not kept up. Since being there, I heard they have plans to fix it up, but unfortunately, they are charging room rates as if they have already pulled... More

I have reached out to this guest to find out more about their visit. I apologize their experience at Rosario was not as expected. I certainly hope they let their server know of their dissatisfaction during their several visits to the Cascade Bay Grill, allowing us to improve this guest’s experience. As I have mentioned before, we certainly want to... More

Rosario has a gorgeous setting, no doubt, but don't think you will be staying in the beautiful old mansion pictured in its ads. Read the small print: there are no rooms located in the main building, and likely your room will be quite far away from the pool with the great view, the main restaurant, and the manse's bar. We...

We were on Orcas Island and saw good reviews on TripAdvisor so we stopped by to view the museum and check out the resort for possible dinner or to book a future reservation. The museum is on the second floor and contains a few pieces from the Moran family and lots of photographs. It was interesting, but was not a... More

I am sorry to hear of this visitor’s experience at Rosario. I have reached out to them for more information, as this treatment comes as a surprise. As previous guest reviews on tripadvisor support over and over, we have a very friendly and helpful staff. I am also sorry this visitor did not get a chance to experience the resort... More

I was very worried after reading reviews of this hotel but it was all that was left on Orcas for 4 people. I wish we'd stayed here longer and skipped one night in Seattle. I cried when we left. We had 2 adults and a 15 and 8 yr old. The room has a huge king room(with it's own balcony... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay at Rosario in a 2 bedroom suite in a Hillside unit. We were 2 couples and we all loved the unit! The two bedrooms and two bathrooms were comfortable and well maintained. We used the kitchenette and living room area and balconies (3) quite a bit. We went swimming in the adults only... More

First off, and I haven't seen this mentioned by anyone, no air conditioning in the rooms. This wouldn't be a problem if you could open the sliding door to the cool air, but in the Skagit building, the balcony connects to the ground. Otherwise, this is an excellent place to visit.
