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

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

Rosarios is a haphazard assembly of mis matched buildings in a lovely location. This place has no flow or character and really shows its age. Our room was a considerable uphill trek from the main building and restaurant and poorly lit at night time. Carpets and worn and dirty and the rooms decor consists of whatever left over furnishings they... More

I am sorry to hear this guest did not enjoy their stay. Our waterfront property is spread out over 40 acres, and many of our accommodations are located on a hillside that dramatically rises from the waterfront. We highly recommend a car when visiting Orcas Island for this reason. I am also sorry to hear this guest found a dirty... More

Just go there. It's the real deal - simple, elegant, unpretentious, but pampered, and in a spectacular setting on the best of all the San Juan Islands. You can sail from there (we did), if you have a boat, you can moor there, it's also right in the middle of the island, so convenient to Eastsound, Olga, Doe Bay, as... More

If you haven't visited Rosario for a while you should. Almost every inch of the property has been restored. The rooms are great and reasonably priced. The restaurant and bar have very good food and drinks in a beautiful view setting. The spa, pools and work out areas are great. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.
