We has a wonderful stay at the Samoset. Very large room for an extremely reasonable price. Their recreation facilities are amazing and which makes the resort great for the entire family (check out the website). The only knock on the hotel is the fact that the kitchen closes at 9pm (which means no room service after nine) and the food...

Dear scOtj, Thank you so very much for choosing the Samoset for your very first visit to Maine! Pizza, blueberry pie, and award-winning golf with ocean views must’ve made a lasting impression. Of course, a blueberry margarita poolside makes any Maine stay a one-of-a-kind experience. We look forward to welcoming you again as seasoned Maine travelers. With Warm Hospitality, Cornelius...

The hotel is first class, the staff is so friendly, the food is amazing, and the golf is ... Well maintained and beautiful! (Greens are tough to read!) We live in Bangor, 60 miles away and we take golf trips down at least once or twice during the summer...The Pebble Beach of the East!

Wonderful! Great location. Staff went overboard to be helpful and pleasant. The ocean view room was spacious, clean, and stocked with the appropriate amenities. Our view from our room of the ocean was gorgeous. We used the hotel as a base to explore the surrounding area. If you choose you could spend your entire stay at the hotel. The pool,...

What a beautiful property, and oh what a view from the balcony. The room was lovely and so comfortable. Something to do for everyone! If you are thinking of going to the Rockport area - do it, just go and stay at the Samoset Resort.

Great view from the room and restaurant. Very comfortable room and bathroom (Deluxe King Ocean View). Fantastic gardens and landscaping. This is a very nice place - you won't be disappointed. Restaurant service was not great, but, the food and the view were outstanding.

This is just a fantastic property,for everyone. There are activities for young children, tennis courts, a full workout facility, a beautiful pool with a large sitting area from which you can see the ocean, and a spectacular golf course that runs along the ocean. We own a timeshare week and it may be the best value in America!!
