I went to the Samoset with my sister- we had selected the Samoset for its view and the pool looked like a great place to relax. Sadly when we got to the resort we discovered the beautiful pool overlooking the Penobscot bay was filled with little kids. I would say it was about 75% children. There were adults around but most of them were not supervising their children. It was noisy and the resort did not even offer an "adult swim" at any point in the day. I headed over to the enormous hot tub- it had a sign above it that clearly read no children allowed- I saw 6 little girls all under the age of 12 playing in it as if it were just a another pool.
Aside from our far from relaxing time at the pool we thought the resort was beautiful and well kept. The lobby was amazing and the staff was very friendly. Our room had a gorgeous ocean view, the furniture was nice and the linens were high quality. The only thing the room lacked was an in room safe.
We also enjoyed the restaurants while there- both were decorated in a very modern style. The food was very good- I especially enjoyed the desserts. At night they had space heaters and fire pits outside- it was very cozy. During the day the view of the water was spectacular.
I would recommend this hotel for people with children. As a teacher I look forward to being away from children in the summer so the next time I am in the area I will look for a boutique hotel.
