We enjoyed four blissful days at Samoset. It is very family friendly, and a welcome respite from everyday life. We would go back. It was not perfect, but it was right for us. HIGH POINTS: - meticulously groomed and beautiful lawns and gardens. - delicious food at the restaurants and good service - breathtaking views from all around the resort... More

Stunning bay views in a tranquil setting. A beautiful golf course with some holes bayside. One of the more peaceful sites I have ever visited. Relaxation at its best but near a multitude of dining options.

Being a Four Diamond Resort we expected our lodgings to be first rate and indeed they were. What we did not expect but greatly enjoyed was the casual friendly atmosphere that exists here. Additionally, we discovered this place to be "Kid friendly to the Max." And seeing kids of all ages so enjoying themselves was an added bonus. The four... More

My husband and I spent two nights in this resort. It was our first time in mid coast Maine,around 4 hours drive from Boston. The hotel is located in a beautiful area of rockport overlooking beautiful Penobscot bay. The rockland breakwater is nearby and adds to the breathtaking view and you can walk there from the resort. We enjoyed our... More

The setting is stunning, the location is excellent, the breakwater walk a top feature, the breakfast buffet great, but the hotel just did not offer value for money. The property seems a little dated in terms of furnishings and carpets, and the AC in the lobby is fridge cold and prevents guests from lingering. Some of the cocktails were great,... More

My family and I just ended our week vacation at the Samoset in Rockport, Maine. I can't write a review strong enough to articulate the positive experience we had; the outdoor pool is second to none and should you run into cooler weather there is an indoor pool to allow swimming at all times. The views, restaurant, golf course and... More

We have been staying at the Samoset for the past 6 years. It is a terrific place to stay with or without kids. The property was renovated several years ago and the pool overlooking Penobscott Bay is gorgeous! The rooms are comfortable, the property is well maintained. I had a great massage in the spa for the first time this... More

This is our second visit. This time we bought my in-laws. Beautiful grounds over looking the water, great pool with good bar, and real comfy beds!!! We will come again! We love walking the break water. We saw a seal. We went to the awesome restaurant Primo for dinner.

Not cheap but the experience is well worth it! We had a top floor room with a beautiful ocean view on one side and a view to the pool on the other side. The external pool is really great and the food, drinks and atmosphere around it is also addictive. There are playing ground as part of the property and... More

Spectacular location on mid-coast Maine. Beautiful views, perfectly maintained grounds and hotel. Room and facilities were very nice. The only reservations I would mention were that seating in the restaurant was sometimes slow at breakfast. They were very busy but it seemed like a few more staff members could have cleared tables more quickly. Most of the staff were gracious... More
