“great option on north fork”
Reviewed June 1, 2010

we had three adults and 3 kids in a two bedroom unit. Although it was a tight squeeze, it worked. The unit was clean, and the kitchen, which is tiny, was functional and had a dishwasher and two burner stove. The deck overlooking the pool was lovely. It is a very nice place and everyone was very friendly. The pool was not small but not large. it closes at 7, so be warned. There is a huge lawn that the kids can play on and the resort has put Adarondack chairs out there so you can sit and watch the sunset, which is nice. There is a path down to the beach (mostly rock). Beach is clean. This is a very nice resort.

My friend and I had the good fortune to come across Joanna Lane of Property Angels and she was the best for setting up our wonderful vacation at the Cliffside Resort condos in Greenport, Long Island. Joanna also gave us tips on good restaruants in the area and we discoved Love Lane Kitchen with its award-winning meals in nearby Mattituck.
Cliffside Resort has spectacular views overlooking Long Island Sound with beautiful sunsets and the sound of waves hitting the shore if you are in one of the front units.

We stayed in B203 on the second floor. The owners of this condo had thought of everything. The decor was delightful even down to the little white china seahorse napkin holders and the beautiful duvet covers in the bedrooms. We were pampered with soaps and shampoos from L'Occitane in the fragrance of Verveine Verbena. It was sheer heaven. And the condo was immaculate with plenty of fresh towels and 2 beautiful bathrooms. There are also flat-screen T.V.s in each room, but who had time for television with so much to see and do in the Northfork area of vineyards, lighthouses and trips to Shelter Island and Sag Harbor. I must also mention the kitchenette which was adquate enough for my friend to cook dinner and breakfast. All in all a wonderful place and many happy memories.

We recently got married at Raphael Vineyard in Peconic, New York on Long Island. We had over 200 guests, many of which traveled long distances to attend the wedding. My husband and I searched the surrounding areas for a nice, clean and enjoyable hotel which could accommodate all of my guests and would not be too far from our reception. The majority of the hotels would not accept large wedding groups and most of them were not up to date nor very clean or enjoyable in any sense of the word! However……..

Luckily, we found the Cliffside Resort Condominiums in Greenport, NY! The hotel was new, clean, large, had a beautiful location and property, a large pool and beach for my guests and they were able to accommodate everyone without a problem! (I made the reservations nearly 7 months before the wedding). Best of all, it is in the heart of the wine country on Long Island, therefore it was less than a 10 minute drive to our reception and a less than a 5 minute drive to our rehearsal dinner Friday night in Greenport!

We were so pleased with the accommodations at the Cliffside resort…. each unit has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a large balcony. The hotel also had a new pool and beautiful large lawn which was a great place for everyone to gather on!

Best of all, the location and landscape were ideal to take our pre-wedding portrait pictures! All of our friends and family have complimented us on how gorgeous our pictures turned out which were taken on the hotel's property! I highly recommend this destination if you are looking for relaxation, proximity to the town of Greenport and local vineyards, if you have children or if you are just looking for a romantic weekend away from the city!

Last week my two friends and I spent four nights at the Ciffside Condos - Room #203B. We were all very pleased with our accomodations. The rooms were immaculate as were the bathrooms. The showers worked very well and the size of the bathrooms gave plenty of room to dry off and dress if needed. I personally slept on the couch (bed) and in the morning I woke up to the sunrise over the Sound, which was right in front o me. The view from the room was spectacular, especially at sunset. It is located near enough to the main town of Greenport, which made it easy for us to travel there for dinner. We had breakfast on our own ouotside patio even when it rained, since it is well enclosed. There is a pool available for guests but we never went in because we prefer the beach. I would definitely recommend others to vacation at the Cliffside Condos. I thought it would be nice in the future if their were kayaks that could be rented for the guests.

Spent a weekend at Cliffside due to a last minute reunion with friends from high school. Wasn't sure we would be able to find a place to stay on a busy weekend but were able to get a two bedroom, two bath unit. The grounds were beautiful with a nice view of the sound. I grew up here so a water view was not important to me but it was still beautiful. The units are attractive and have that "beachy" look. There is an outdoor heated pool that we enjoyed after a long day outside. There is a lifeguard on duty. The unit was clean and comfortable. The master bedroom was large with a nicely appointed small bath that had a tub. The other bathroom was just as nice and contained a shower only. The masterbedroom had a small flat screen tv. My 23 month old slept in the other bedroom that had two twin beds. His travel crib fit in between. The living area was set up like a studio...sitting area, small table and chairs in the corner, flat screen mounted above. The kitchen are was small but functional. and very attractive. Mini stainless stainless steel fridge, dishwasher and microwave. No stove but two burners. I was surprised to see the little wine fridge. Plenty of dishes, flatware and utensils. Off the living area was a large covered balcony with table and chairs. Never thought of it before but like the fact it was covered in outdoor carpet. Much nicer than stone or wood considering the proximity to the pool and beach and bare feet. We took our son down to the beach and he enjoyed his first experience with throwing rocks in the water. Again the grounds are beautiful even the path to the beach. Bottom line I would probably stay here again. We've found two bedrooms a neccesity now that we have a child and the Cliffside met our needs. We've stayed in just as nice and better for less but I do realize location and time period factored heavily into the cost of our weekend jaunt. Forgot to mention free wi-fi which I amazingly did not use!

We stayed at the resort for one week (13th July 2009) in a sea-view unit . It was the two of us adults and one 3 month old baby.

Location: the condo's are in a great location, easy access from New York city. Its a perfect location for exploring the rest of Long Island, we visited Greenport (5 mins drive away), Shelter Island (5 mins drive and then a 10 min ferry ride which costs $15), Orient (20 mins drive), The Hamptons & Montauk (1.5 hrs drive including ferries).

Overall impression of the resort:
Nicely landscaped and the buildings are all very well maintained (they are very new). Lots of lawn space for picnics and adirondack chairs in pretty pastel colors for watching the sun go down. Right by the (pebble) beach so you can see the ocean.

Amenities:
There is a fair sized pool which is heated (actually its like bath water as the sun also heats it up even more so perfect for little kids a bit warm for adults perhaps!). Lots of nice chairs and sun loungers/tables/umbrellas by the pool area and towels are provided. Clean modern toilet facilities and a 'club house room' also by the pool area. The pool does have a lifeguard and a safety gate so they have taken families into consideration here. Only issue with the pool is that it always seemed quite dirty with lots of bits of leaf/bugs floating around in it despite the lifeguard cleaning it every so often.
Around the resort there are many bbq grill stations - plenty to go around.
Also there is an ice machine and drinks vending machine by the pool.
Plenty of parking spaces also and all close to the actual units so not much walking necessary. I noticed that there were ramps and mini-elevators to some units so therefore it is accessible to disabled people.
There is free wi-fi throughout the resort (hurrah!). It worked fine all of our stay which is better than some places that advertise internet and then it crashes all the time. We were able to watch streaming movies from netflix with no problems so the bandwidth is prob quite high.

Units:
Very clean and in exceptionally good order due to the fact that the resort is almost brand new. We had a two bedroom unit (one queen bed, two twins) which had two bathrooms (one with a bath, one with a shower) and a main family room/kitchen. Balcony with table and chairs overlooking the sea.
All the furniture is new and in a modern style and the unit was fitted out with all the necessary equipment for a self-catering holiday. The fridge was small but plenty of space for food for one week and in addition a wine fridge so you can keep all the drinks in that! There is no oven but just two hob rings (electric) and a microwave but since we bbq'd the entire week was not a problem for us. There is a toaster but no electric kettle however there is a coffee maker. Plenty of plates/glassware/flatware etc. They also give you a starter pack when you arrive which has washing up liquid, dishwasher powder (yes there is a dishwasher thank goodness!!! but its not a full size one!) toilet paper, a kitchen cloth etc. There are also mini shampoos etc in the bathrooms but they are very small just enough in an emergency really.
Flatscreen TV's in the main room and the main bedroom which have a selection of channels (main news channels, and a few others - not a huge list but you're on holiday so not really needing a tv!).
All the linens needed were there and quite good quality/seemed very clean.
We took our own pack n play for the baby although to be fair I never asked if there were cribs available to borrow so it might be worth checking.

Final Word:
Great resort for young families or couples. You definitely need a car to explore the area and to get supplies (there is an IGA in Greenport or a King Kullen and a Walmart in Riverhead on the 25) as there is not really enough to do at the resort for a week since the beach is pebble and quite small and the pool is great for a day or two but probably you would want a change of scene after that. The resort was quiet, clean and well-managed. It is not the cheapest in the area but for a good reason and is well worth the money, I will be returning here soon I hope. At the moment its a bit of a 'hidden gem' since its so new and not over run with loads of people - there were a lot of owners there when we went and the resort was not 100% full. I have high standards and this place met them!

These condos were clean and modern and almost all of them had a great view or partial of the water. We stayed with our extended family and everyone was very comfortable. Each condo has a kitchenette and balcony. The staff was extremely friendly and allowed us to check in early and extend our stay an extra night for a discounted price. Cell service was poor but you could make free local and long distance calls from the room's landline. They also had free wi-fi which was great. I would definatley recommend the Cliffside condos.
