Perfection!

Review of Samoset Resort
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 weeks ago
Every time we visit Samoset it is memorable! This trip was the best-from the food at La Bella Vita with the daily happy hour to the amenities we enjoyed-the hot tub, Steam room and pools. The #1 stand out was the cleanliness of the hotel especially our room. Soft and luscious bed linens, a sparkling shower & bath and closets with luxury bath robes, spotless Nespresso coffee bar and refrigerator and freezer. In todays world when we tend to worry about the cleanliness of where we stay outside our own home; we were impressed with our housekeeper. She took a lot of pride in keeping our room absolutely perfect every day!

    When you’ve been to this resort as many times as we have, you come to expect a certain level of service, professionalism, and care. But, each and every year, somehow, this resort finds a way to surpass the previous year in all of these areas. Under the watchful eye of the GM, Connie Russell, the service keeps getting better, the amenities keep getting better, and the property … well the property speaks for itself. Congratulations Samoset, for finding a way again this year, to impress me even more.

    Room tip: My helpful tip is - stay here if you have the chance.

    The resort is very pleasant and quiet and the view from the balcony of our timeshare condo was spectacular. Unit is clean and comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped (though VERY small, about 6' x 8', one person at a time).

    I do have some caveats that are worth a mention. Even though there his handicapped parking in the lot, the building is NOT ACA accessible. There is a slop up to the main door, however the door is not automated and hard to open from even a standing position. There is a two inch bump to get over before entering the vestibule, where there is another door and bump before you are in the building. There is NO elevator, so if you do have some mobility issues, be sure to ask for the door level floor. There are 17 stairs to get to the second floor.

    There are no GFI outlets next to the kitchen sink, nor are there any next to the bathroom sink.

    Glad you enjoyed our pleasant Penobscot Bay location and view. It sounds like you stayed in one of our smaller one bedroom condominium units.
    I believe you are referring to ADA which I included in the email I sent to you following your comments. Our 72 condos are broken up into 24 per building each with its own entry leading to three floors. I’m sorry if the access did not meet your expectations, Our Engineering team will follow up on the GFI outlets, thank you for sharing. With Hospitality,

    The location and room views are awesome! The Timeshare/Condo unit are modest (including modest tight kitchen and modest bathroom), pleasant, clean, have everything you need including well-equipped kitchen, TV, nice balcony, closet. Bed is comfortable. Temperature in the unit is easy to control. Restaurant is a very wonderful feature and we enjoyed a lot our dinner on the first night. We were able to walk around the golf course and near the water before and after golf hours. Resort is conveniently located near the grocery stores, Pockland and Camden where you will find a lot of wonderful galleries and fantastic stores. We loved hiking to the tops of the hills with magnificent 360 views. Acadia National Park is enchanting!

    iig, Thank you for choosing our wonderful location to spend a week in one of our 72 ocean view time share condominiums. Mid coast Maine has something for everyone especially for shopping, dining and museums. Camden Hills State Park is indeed a fun location for hiking and panoramic Penobscot Bay overlooks. Glad you took advantage of the 2 hour drive to Mount Desert Island, home to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. With Hospitality, Connie

    My friend and I had a wonderful, relaxing stay at the resort and in the surrounding area. The staff were extremelyhelpful at the resort, answering all of our questions and giving excellent service. We especially enjoyed making s’mores annd drinking anpple cider our first night, as well as the indoor pool, hot tub and sauna, large grounds to explore and view from our unit throughout the week. Groceries were closeby to get, as well as several restaurants that we tried for lunch, and lighthouses that we hiked to.

    The condo rooms were nice and about what you would expect from an RCI property, but the real benefit of staying here is the added amenities of the hotel, especially the first-class gym. The front desk staff were outstanding and went above and beyond anytime I had a question or issue. I was especially impressed by their professionalism. The view of the coast and the surrounding area made for a unique and satisfying vacation experience. I would definitely stay here again.
