This is definitely a place I plan to visit again. I chose it because (a) they had many different rooms that could accommodate 3+ adults without someone sleeping on a pull out sofa and (b) the location and views looked great online. We stayed in the South building with a patio to the lawn area and wonderful view of the ocean. The location was great as it was right on Marginal Way. You could do a wonderful morning or evening walk to start/end your day. It was also a short walk to Perkin's Cove via Marginal Way.
We had a kitchenette in our room which we put to good use considering there isn't really a restaurant on premises. They do have standard continental breakfast and a little corner they put a bar in (I think they serve sandwiches).
We stayed here in May, which is very early beach season. It was very quiet and peaceful but I would imagine it gets loud and busy in peak times.
There is no sandy beach here. When the tide is low, you can climb down the rocks to the water but it's not a 'playing area'. You get a great view of Ogunquite beach but unless you want to walk a great distance (couple miles?) along Marginal Way, you can only get to it by car.
We had a Queen bedroom room, with 2 twins in the main area. I was told the twins were not comfortable but the queen was fine. The room is not spectacular but it's certainly clean and roomy. The TV needs to be updated to the 20th century. They should swap out the 2 uncomfortable chairs for a small sofa (there is enough room for one).
You go here for the view and location. It's very pricey, even off season, for what the resort has to offer other than a view. But I would definitely come here again when I want to sit and relax with a great view.
