This place has the feel of the Hotel Del Coronado. The staff were gracious and super happy we were there. The grounds are gorgeous. It’s a true full service resort where there is a spa, fitness, marina, (if you want to use the kayaks, there’s a person to actually make sure you understand how to safely navigate and get you set up), spa, fitness center, grocery store and tons of cute little shops. The waiters and waitresses at the Marina restaurant were excellent. The food there was delicious: Chopped Salad and Fish Tacos a must try. The view is more of the marina, so not as scenic as Snug Harbor, but the resort delivers in every way.

To start with the condo(unit 205) we stayed was very hot. It appears that the thermostat was most likely broken and we did not realize it till the last day. The room was overheated to a point that the fans were blowing hot air. The resort does not have any air conditioning for most of its units. The ceiling fan moved excruciatingly slow. The front desk advised us to open the windows and when we resorted to that the bugs starting moving inside the condo. The resort attracts mosquitoes due to standing water in the marina area. You better be armed with ample bug spray. The resort laundry facilities are dirty and the detergent dispenser is probably permanently out of order ans so are some of the other dispenser. Everything at the grocery store appeared to be priced at "Island price". The parking spaces in the condo are positioned in a way that your vehicle has a higher than normal probability of hitting a brush or worse hit another vehicle. Despite having a nice experience at the island itself this resort turned out to be a killjoy and it ended up devaluing it to a point where we are certain not to visit the island itself. So for future guests who travel especially at the peak of summer ensure that you try to get a unit with air conditioner, get ample amount of bug spray and make sure that you identify your supplies before hand and buy it in the mainland

Have been to Roche Harbor over the years several times. Generally nice place. Couple of thoughts. First, you need another restaurant for peak season. With all of the building going on, there just are not enough places to eat on that end of the island. Second, there are some trails on the property that are for walking and the occasional bicycle, yet my family has had frequent encounters with dirt bikes speeding through the trials, as well as harassment from golf carts loaded with drunken Gen-Z types. Not very relaxing.

Our family of four stayed in one of the Condo's at Roche Harbor over the weekend. I was so excited to stay here after hearing how lovely the resort is. While the scenery is beautiful, I was shocked at the state of the condo's. They were incredibly dated, the condo itself smelled, the cabinets were crooked, the lights didn't work, the coffee machine overflowed, both toilets filled up completely to the brim before fully flushing, the condo itself wasn't level, the deck was visibly tilted due to settling, and the spring mattress was broken on one side. We've stayed many places and was shocked at even the cheapness of the toiletries. Everything just felt grimy. The night before, we stayed in a yurt at Lakedale Resort and were wanting to go back due to the difference in experience. I would not recommend staying here. For the resort, would recommend that they invest back into the rooms - they need a lot of work!
