I love this place because they provide everything you need: towels, chairs, food. They have fun activities, although you have to pay for most of them. They offer yoga, kayak and paddle board rentals, kids activities and lots more. Food is great and the hotel is very clean.

There is a small roof that runs in front of this room. Evidently there was someone walking on that roof, and removed items from our balcony. A bit scary knowing that someone was looking in our room while we were asleep.

Excellent and relaxing getaway! I enjoyed myself. The lobster dinner was one of the best I have had. I enjoyed yoga on the lawn, paddle board lessons and swimming in both the ocean and the pool. My grandchildren came of visit. I only wish I had a whole week there!

Everything was outstanding, with one exception. Room service didn't answer when I called twice, so had to walk down to the restaurant and was told that they were busy but I only saw 3 tables of people. Took order and most food arrived in 30 minutes, but the order was incomplete. Deliverer said that there wasn't a ticket for the... More

Great location with easy access to the beach. Full breakfast included was a nice bonus. Vintage feel with upgraded touches. For the price paid, beach loungers should be included. Drinks at the poolside bar were delicious but pricey.

We had our annual office retreat this past weekend at the Blockade Runner and it was, once again, a wonderful experience. The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms and views were great. The view on either side of the hotel is lovely and enjoyable.

The Blockade Runner Beach Resort was a nice quiet and family friendly place to visit. Modern and very comfortable accommodation. Activities for kids and families were offered, they serve a great breakfast and have beautiful views from each of the rooms our party stayed in.

My Army son finally got some leave at the last minute and wanted to go to the ocean. I flew in from out of state ready for much-needed beach therapy together. Because it was last minute, nearly every hotel in the area was sold out. I was offered "our very last room, facing the ocean" and they processed my credit... More

Great hotel except for the absurd bathroom, which had window into rest of the bedroom over the sink, mirror over the toilet, and no place to hang towels or clothes in bathroom. Breakfast was outstanding. At lunch and dinner there once each and that was great too. Right on the beach.

I was here for a week-long training. Found staff very friendly and the grounds/beach well kept and beautiful. Best part was the great food and location. Hotel rooms are aging. Time for new AC and showers.
