“great resort”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

My fiance and I stayed three nights here and loved it. From check in to departure it was a wonderful stay, We had a room on the fourth floor in the newest building and it was very comfortable, large, clean, the bath was very large and nice. Breakfast was usual, but well stocked, the grounds were well kept and location was between Acadia and town, very convenient. The view from our balcony was overlooking Frenchman Bay, and was beautiful. Only drawback was it seemed the walls must have been very thin. Could hear man in next room snoring very easily and it was annoying.

Room Tip: get in newest building think its #4 top 4th floor

Winter rates were in effect and we got a beautiful ocean view room with a veranda for a reasonable price. The breakfast was offered in a clean roomy space and had a decent and fresh variety to choose from. Not many options to eat within walking distance and town is a short drive away.

During our recent East Coast driving trip (from Boston to PEI), we spent the first night at the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel in Bar Harbour. The room was fantastic!!! Top floor, facing the water and sunrise was fantastic!!! We had just one night here, but it was perfect!! We were also just minutes from Acadia National Park and lots of great lobster pounds!!! When we return to this area we will definitely be staying here again. Breakfast was complimentary and with a nice variety of items including homemade peanut butter :).

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the water and high up for the best views.

We moved to the Atlantic Oceanview after a couple nights stay in a BH hotel which was VERY nice, but not what we were looking for. Atlantic Oceanview is also very nice---not so trendy, perhaps---but it was the perfect fit for us. When we checked in, DH explained that we were moving from another establishment and why and the lovely lady at the desk said she was going to give us a room with the best view---and I do believe she did! We had an absolutely unhindered view of the bay just outside our balcony. (We wrote down the room number, for sure!) The room was very clean, the beds comfy, and it was overall a very really pleasant three nights. We were two minutes out of town, but felt like much further when it came to peace and quiet. The breakfast was generous and there was not a single staff member who was not pleasant, professional, and just plain nice. DH loved the pool and spa! We have always stayed in cottages before, but it will be a hard decision next time, we enjoyed our stay at the Atlantic Oceanview so much.

We stayed in the newly renovated building and it was amazing.
Our room 4406 in the Atlantic building.
First of all, the pictures on their website do not do it any justice. The room was beautiful, especially the bathroom.
The view was beautiful from the deck.
A few things to highlight.
All the staff members I was in contact with were very courteous and helpful.
The room was immaculate. There were little touches all around the room that I loved. Cusions on the deck chairs, (on arrival, they were placed inside the room. No rain on them. :) )
Very high shower head in shower. My husband is very tall and this was the first time he has ever had a shower that was actually above his head. :)
Water pressure in the shower was great.
Bed was super comfy and we had plenty of pillows.
Extra pillows and blanket were in closet if we needed them.
Ceiling fan in room in case you wanted to sleep with the door open on a summer night. :)
Free breakfast in the morning was great!
On check out, I realized that there was a room off of the front desk area to sit and talk or play board games (provided by hotel)
This was in the main building, right next to the Atlantic building.
It looked so relaxing with its windows on the harbor. We just had to sit down there for a minute while my husband looked up some things on the computer (provided by hotel).
Overall, I would definately recommend this hotel. The website just does not show the true beauty of it.
Also, there is a playground out front for the kids (didnt realize this till we were leaving)

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor are best I think for views of the harbor. We stayed in 4406

My family and I stayed at the hotel for the Mount Desert Island Marathon. The room was excellent and tastefully decorated, the view of the Frenchman's Bay beautiful. We found all the staff to be wonderful.

On the day of the marathon several participants showed up for breakfast before the official opening at 6:30 a.m.. Staff welcomed and fed us, even as they tried to finish readying the restaurant for opening (I highly recommend their homemade jams and peanut butter.).

We will definitely stay here again, if we make it back to Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: We stayed in the new building.

Our room was in a building approximately 50 feet from the waters edge. The room was gorgeous and the view of Frenchman's Bay was beautiful. We sat on the patio and watched the lobster boats. You can have a free continental breakfast or order from the menu. The hotel is close to town and Acadia National Park. The Nature Cruise docks at the pier by the hotel, and as a guest of the hotel, you get a percentage off the ticket price. Loved our stay at here and intend to come back again.
