OHH MY, I’m SHOCKED, APPALLED even!!! I Found bugs, roaches and fruit flies in my room to be precise, and at over $1k/night??? But you know what….. there may be more things wrong if you look hard enough. You can bet however that I will continue to come back and frequent this Montauk Icon, and pillar of the community with my wife, and family. I have to treat my house continuously and maintain a preventative maintenance plan to keep bugs and insects out, but that doesn’t always work. What makes Gurneys, or any other establishment any different? Maybe our expectation of being charged a premium sets a stellar standard that in our mind exists at its own level which may be different for everyone? Either way, everyone is correct!! At the prices they charge, there is a standard, a basic requirement that goes without saying must be met. I do believe they, the people, the facility, the amenities, and the location meet that expectation. Is there room for improvement, ABSOLUTELY always! That improvement comes with a price however. Todays, tomorrows, and yesterdays price for improvement is constantly changing, and the struggles to maintain such a facility at the highest level of its guests approval is always the biggest, and primary challenge. There are few places, in fact NONE, nearby, that offer a full service level of experience which offer studios, 1-3 BR rooms, cottages, private residences, restaurants, a full service brand new spa with indoor AND outdoor pool? Did I fail to mention the reason we continuously make the trip out to Gurneys.....? THE VIEW!!!! The ATLANTIC OCEAN quite literally less than 150' from some of the rooms, and beach day bed/ cabanas. The natural, organic way in which each passing minute there melts your stress and anxiety away. If you don't experience this, then you are at the wrong place, or there for the wrong reason. Go look for bugs, cracks, dust, and stains in your room. I guarantee you will find all of that. The reviews I read about this nostalgic location, and countless others, are very emotional, and quite biased. The ratings seem to benefit the individuals personal emotions rather than the entire experience, or caliber of facility as a whole, taking into consideration that these places are being run by humans, people, and not robots. Yes they are EXPENSIVE, but YES you knew that before reserving there. So don't let the price deter you from having a great time. Would everyone be as critical if they aid 50% less? Once you are there, you are in control, and very little "should" take that experience away from you. The good, the bad, the reality: Gurneys may at times be short on staff, it is high on customer expectation, and maybe a little short on “some” details that one would consider exceptional or one of a kind for its premium location on the Atlantic Ocean. Yes, their prices may read like a black market organ trading price list. They do try their hardest, and work their best at being really good at the positions they are in. I have seen the staff go out of their way to accommodate the requests of their guests. That alone is a very difficult task in this industry. Gurneys in in the “hospitality” AKA Experiential Entertainment” industry. The most difficult jobs in this world have been in the food service and hospitality industry. They are all entertainers being modestly compensated for their service. Some work really hard and passionately, and others don’t. Just like in real life. But at over $1000/ night the expectation is heightened, and the perceived experience is assumed to be elevated and as close to “perfect” as you can imagine. But just like in “real life” we all make mistakes, and fail to realize that nothing, or no one is perfect. We all forget, we are all still human, and not AI, or machines. So yes…. Gurneys is not for the cost conscious (but you really already knew that) however staying here will naturally award you with an unparalleled Montauk experienced that is next to impossible to compete with anywhere else. If your Desiree to experience a premium, classic gem that is aged and dated in some ways, but certainly fresh, contemporary, and very trendy in many others, the beautiful ocean front Gurneys Montauk is hands down, the nicest place to stay while in Montauk. Just a reminder, the last two years have been incredibly challenging on so many industries, and the food service, and hospitality industries were particularly hit the hardest. Ive seen so many titans of the industry shut down, and close after decades of successful service. The fact that Gurneys is still moving forward, and their staff still has a smile on their faces (they actually do) is very special. EVERYTHING has increased in cost from staff, food, maintenance, materials, equipment, and even pest control services. So be aware of the people that work their tails off, not only at Gurneys, but at every establishment who's primary function is to provide a positive service for their guests. That is a very difficult task.... pleasing people, and their high level of expectations is at times a very thankless position, and one that many times goes un-appreciated.

Had our wedding here and the venue, staff (from general manager, chef, to wedding day coordinator) we’re all amazing! Had rehearsal dinner at their nearby hotel Star Island and the ceremony/reception/after party at Gurneys Resort and could not have been happier. Beach-side cottages were amazing as well.

My husband and I checked into gurneys star island on Friday night at 9:00pm. As I was getting ready to relax in bed, I couldn’t help but feel like the bedding was wet. I thought maybe it was bc they had the AC really low. I decided to get under the covers instead and when I pulled the comforter back a roach came running out! I was horrified! My husband packed all of our stuff and said we are out of here. As we were packing we noticed drain flies everywhere and two more dead roaches on the floor. The manager said she would issue a full refund and we left. As it was so late at night we drove over to the other Gurneys in Montauk. It was 10:15 by that point and the concierge said they had a double queen ocean front room available. 1900 for the first night but we didn’t even care bc we just wanted to have a nice weekend. Night two I get in bed a a black bug comes running out. I called the front desk and the woman said she’s never had a complaint like this. I asked to come see for herself and she sent housekeeping who told me it was “just a beetle” I literally sat at the edge of the other bed and cried. I was so over the bs. We were never offered another room or even an apology. There was nowhere else to go so we had to stay. The next day there were 3 huge roaches running around our room! My husband had enough! He put them in the gurneys zip lock bag and we brought them to the reception area to show the staff upon checkout. They were running around the bags and the manager literally said he could take 900 off our bill. I said I am not paying for anything. How dare he even ask us to pay 4000 for a roach infested and dirty room. I had been calling for 3 days during our stay and no one ever answered or responded to us. The manager Josh said if I was unwilling to accept his offer he would have to go get another manager. When the other manager arrived he asked what the problem was and I walked him over to the front desk to show him the roaches STILL ALIVE in the bag. He responded to me in front of all the staff and other guests checking in and out that “you brought these roaches here and I’m not refunding anything” my husband looked like he was going to snap and I told him to go outside and get some air. I returns to the manager and said did you really just say that I brought these roaches here? He said yes you did as he was laughing. Where and how does a person collect roaches to bring into a room?!! I was humiliated by this racist human being and have already contacted my attorney. I own a 8 million dollar beach front property in the Carribean and I’ve never ever had roaches ever. The manager then proceeded to go outside and tell my husband that we brought the roaches there as a means to not pay for the room. Not to be a jerk but my watch alone could buy and sell our room 6 times. He clearly was racist and judging us based on his disgusting closed mind. I have never ever felt so embarrassed and horrified by “customer service” as we left 3 other couples came over to us and they were so so nice. They witnessed the whole thing and said their rooms were filthy and the place has went completely downhill. One woman told me to go home and throw my luggage away bc if any of the roaches got in our house they would never leave. We slept outside on our deck in the freezing cold for two nights bc I was so afraid of the roaches crawling on me ar night. This was the worst experience I’ve ever ever encountered and my 40th was completely ruined. I left my 3 kids at home for the first time ever and it was not worth it one bit. Do yourself a favor and avoid this DUMP!! The surf club in Montauk blows this place away. So clean, so friendly and unpretentious. My lawyer will be in touch for their blatant racism! They should be ashamed!!!

Our family of 4 rented one of the cottages directly on the beach. Many small things were lacking: nowhere to wipe or rinse sand off your feet before going into your cottage (spigots on the beach not functional); guests may not use the sauna unless they book a spa appointment ($200+ and no one called me back when I tried to book one); no access to the gym/pool from the beach side where the rooms and cottages are, so you have to walk around to the main entrance; mutlple restaurants all serving essentially the same menu. Pretty disappointing all around and not a "luxury" hotel as they bill themselves. The only saving grace to the corporate environment is the staff: everyone who works there was wonderful. There's just a disconnect between what they say they provide and what you actually get. The focus is not on their hotel guests but on people coming in from outside to the spa and for conferences. Ok experience, but not worth the money and more disappointing than anything else.

Thank you SG744506 for staying with us and providing us this feedback. It is a great idea to place a rinse off outside of the beach front cottages and this is something we will definitely look into. I will ensure the team gives a better overview of gym and pool access as there is a direct entryway from the cottage side of the resort you should have been told about. I am glad you enjoyed the staff and we will definitely do a better job during your next visit to review your location with you. I look forward to meeting you in the future. Jonathan

There were many fantastic things about the resort - beautiful location, nice vibe, on the ocean, good food and nice beach loungers. The downsides is related to service. We were promised a complimentary bottle of prosecco which took us 2 days to actually receive. At least they finally made good. Service at the restaurants was very up and down. One server promised complimentary refills on ice tea but charged for all refills. There was no follow-up on cocktails or dessert possibilities in the prime restaurant. Staff was very friendly but often unreliable. Rooms are nice but a little worn. Property is quiet and parking complimentary with great service by valet parking assistants. Was difficult getting help with suitcases and baby gear when checking out - no one answered the phone after multiple attempts. Overall had a nice visit but for the room price, service should have been more top-notch.

First floor had no ocean view as high bushes were in the way. Salt water spa was closed. No refund or change of room was offered. First floor also was several flights of steps down. All these missing amenities for a very expensive resort.

I’ve never written a review before, but had to for my 5 night stay at Gurney’s Montaulk in August. From start to finish, my wife and I were blown away by every aspect of our stay. Our room had a balcony that opened up directly to the ocean. Each morning, we got to watch a family of whales having their breakfast (picture below - literally taken from my room). From there, the beach was incredible. Servers everywhere, never waiting more than 5 minutes for a drink or food. More than enough chairs for all guests. The spa experience was as good as any we have ever experienced. The staff all around was very attentive - from housekeeping to the baristas to the waitstaff/bartenders to the valet and everyone in between. - each person had a smile on their face and was not just willing to help but also seemed to anticipate what our next ask. Also need to give the General Manager Jonathan a shoutout as well. He happened to be at the front desk when I checked in - from that point on, he greeted my by name each time we crossed paths throughout my stay. Jonathan was always genuinely curious about my plans for the day or evening, and ready with a recommendation to make our experience as incredible as possible. It’s very clear that he’s extraordinarily passionate about hospitality in general and deeply committed to ensuring all his guests get their moneys worth and have the best experience possible.

I never write reviews. It is rare for me to be so passionately charged to complain online. This weekend I took my boyfriend and his two adult children to this resort for a very special occasion (a milestone birthday for him). The set up and initial overview of the resort was very nice and the check in seemed classy. From there things went downhill, The internet and cell service were both down during our first day onsite. Calls to the front desk were unanswered (literally no one answered the phone all day), the walls of the hotel are paper thin so we heard children screaming all night each night. There is a 25 age minimum in the bar/fire pit area and even though we were here for a family vacation my boyfriend’s 24 year old daughter (and all of us) were turned away. None of this was mentioned upon booking, check in, or during our initial stay. We plan to complain more broadly as we are seasoned travelers and know the hotel commission rules. There are a lot of options for service and hotels, Montauk is a unique place. Please don’t waste your time, money, or milestone birthdays at this resort,
