We just returned from a 4 day trip from Winnetu. To beat the crowd, we went a little early this summer and got a great deal (1 night free with 2 nights stay.) However, we were a little disapponted that many of the family activities, such as the complimentary water taxi or family BBQ/clambake, won't start until after the promotion is over.
Our kids had a lot of fun at the afternoon antique fire truck ride and we saw many kids participating in the day time free kids programs and the youth counsellors were very engaging and fun.
The location of the resort is fantastic, walking distance to the South Beach. The property itself had a lot of activities like tennis, yoga, turtle feeding. However, it is a bit far (5-6 minute drive) from Edgartown center and the complimentary van to towncenter only runs hourly.
We also had some problem with our AC unit in our room but the front desk quickly delivered a window unit.
Main complaint is the presence of mosquitoes in the elevator, flies in our room, etc. Our kids were bitten by mosquitos. Not sure if this is common at Martha's Vineyard in general but would recommend the hotel do something about insect control.
