“Scenic”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

We're in a timeshare unit through RCI which has a spectacular view of Penobscot bay. The unit itself is very good, although the kitchen is tiny and the space could definitely benefit from a fireplace (we're here in the winter). Gym and fitness areas are also very good, apparently the town's only gym and frequented by some "locals" as John Travolta. The only con would be the heavy-footed guest/s upstairs whose tromp vibrates our whole unit. I complained to reception without much efficacy. Despite this, which I cannot blame the establishment for, we are having a fantastic time and are looking forward to the next several days at the resort.

“DJ for a bank party”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

The banquet manager was awesome and made sure we actually got to eat , its amazing how many people expect you to DJ for 5 or 6 hours and have no plans to feed you. He made sure we got silverware and snuck us in the line. The staff was good and the food was awesome. Not sure why they had a fake buffet line, two REAL lines would have made the line move alot faster and allowed people to dance longer, this crowd loves to dance. Glad the samoset was open this winter!!

“Great golf but read to on ....”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Great conditions .... greens and fairways are green and seemingly a carpet! Rough is a bit long, tee to fairway so-so for high handicappers (bit far).
Greens very fast, sloped back to front; side-hill puts frequent, on downhills your ball may roll 10ft past the pin. Elevated tees and or greens, humps .... brooks !! Bunkers ok!
When wind blows, be carefull on water side holes. Moisture prevelant in mornings.
Course not worn after the long summer.
Wonderfull to play the course; what great views of Penboscot Bay, sails, and the Rockland breakwater (almost forget your golf score).
Didn't like 'regulars' jumping around to avoid any wait; the proshop either doesn't know or care (want $$). no course ranger post Labor Day.
