“Wonderful Resort!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2008

The Oceanwoods Resort is a fantastic resort . My stay there was great! The staff was accomadating and kind. I loved my room. The bed was extremely comfortable. PJ's pub was a fun and great place place to have dinner or just a drink. I truly enjoyed my stay at the Oceanwoods Resort.

GRB is certainly one of the nicest bathing beaches in Maine but accommodations are limited. We were pleasantly surprised with the Ocean Woods Resort...our room was large and clean and the staff was very friendly. New management seems to be upgrading the place and our room had recently been redone. We also had a nice view of the grounds and were close to the pool.

A good mix of families like ours and couples were staying there. The "Sports Pub" is a bonus and featured live entertainment over the weekend we stayed.

We really had a great time and the kids had a blast too and
this was a big plus. The inn has a great homey feel the staff
is friendly and helpful and PJ's Bar was really a nice end to
the day.
We would definitely go back we love the location Maine is so
great.

I must say that I am shocked to see so many reviews that stated this hotel was great! This was one of the WORST hotels I have ever stayed in for the price that I paid. $160 per night got us the MOST uncomfortable bed I have ever stayed in. There was actually sand in the sheets the first night. $160 per night also got us the smelliest room I have ever smelled. The room literally smelled of urine. A friend of mine found mouse droppings in her room. I definately would NOT stay here again! Don't let the price fool you into thinking it is a nice establishment.

What a nice family getaway we had at this hide-a-way resort in Kennebunkport. It was just about ten minutes away from the actual center of town but only about a minute to a huge sandy beach! Even on a busy weekend you had plenty of privacy on this beach and the waves are small enough that the kids loved it. Thanks for such a nice trip and we loved the live music on the deck at PJ's Pub! We will be back next summer!!

We (a family of 6) stayed here for a week in the beginning of July in the hotels spacious 2-bedroom apartment (with full kitchen, washer and dryer etc). It was an overall very positive experience.

The location only 800 meters from the beach is great, and the beach itself is wonderful. Only downside is that its a 10 minute drive to town and the restaurants there.

Our kids enjoyed the pool and the private deck outside the appartment. The appartment itself was clean and with good beds, but could need an update on the interior (and a flat screen
tv and access to internet, which is only available in the reception).

There was a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere at this family run hotel, and the restaurant - which does look like anything fancy - serves up some very surprisingly pretty good dishes.

We could very well be staying here again, when we get back to Maine

Our family stayed here for two nights and it was two nights too long. The location is very good and the walk to Goose Rocks Beach takes about 10-15 minutes. The room was very spacious and clean. My main grievance was the price for what you got. The beds were some of the most uncomfortable beds I ever slept in. The breakfast was advertised as expanded but was actually much less than expected. The entire resort site seemed like it needed a lot of upkeep or maintenance done to be called a resort. Even the parking lot was a disappointment: unpaved dirt/sand/stones not very nice for unloading luggage without getting everything dirty. I probably would have overlooked some of these items but for the cost it seemed like I was taken advantage of. The pictures we saw of the place weren't too detailed and from a distance looks like a respectable place to stay. It wasn't till we got there that I really saw what I was paying for. This place has a lot of potential to be a GREAT resort, but not currently. I'm sure there are much better alternatives.
