When the weather cooperates, this hotel shines. I had a room on the first floor and the view was amazing - looking out on to the golf course, towards the ocean. The grounds crew does a great job maintaining the golf course and all aspects of the property. Very nice walking trails nearby, especially to the light house. There are...

Dear julisshaa, Thank you for mentioning the beautiful results of all the hard work our Grounds crew puts forth to keep our resort looking so nice. I was also very pleased to read you have chosen to stay with us multiple times-thank you-and have never had a bad experience. I’m glad you enjoyed a few meals in La Bella Vita...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in mid-June with our infant for a little getaway trip. We started our visit in a room in the second/middle wing of the hotel and it was ok. Decor was a little dated and worn, bathroom wasn't anything fancy, etc. But it did have a decent view and good sized balcony....

Dear JKCrumpler, Thank you for your review of the Samoset. I’m glad our team was able to quickly address your concerns with the sink and were also able to offer an alternative room for you to enjoy.

My wife and I recently stayed here on a leg of our honeymoon and it was simply wonderful. I recommend a room with a spa tub on the top floor. The views are amazing as you eat your breakfast, lunch, or dinner on your private balcony. Close the privacy curtains on the balcony and relax in your fully adjustable spa...

This resort provides excellent service, manicured grounds, and outstanding views of Penobscot Bay and the Rockland Harbor. Breakfasts were very good, however we did not opt to have dinner at the hotel restaurant. Instead we visited several excellent restaurants in the nearby "foodie center" of Camden. We chose a deluxe king view room which was large, well-appointed, and had an...

A 4 Crown rated resort center that deserves 5 stars. Spent a week here. Very attentive and responsive to our needs and comments. The on-site restaurant is also great. You can spend the whole week on the resort or use it as a base to visit the local area that has so much to offer and visit.

Stayed at the Samoset Resort and absolutely loved it. The room overlooked golf course, ocean and breakwaters. Enjoyed dinner outside at the Italian restaurant. The littlenecks over linguini were delicious and reasonably priced. Staff is very cordial and accommodating. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a top notch experience while visiting coastal Maine.

We are owners of timeshare and this was an exchange and a wonderful surprise. The Samoset timeshare, a one bedroom, bed very comfy, was very cheerful.

Dear DokeyB, I am so glad that you obviously enjoyed your time staying in one of Samoset’s timeshare condominiums. Your week sounds wonderful and packed full of activities.

I recently attended the Maine Hospital Association Summer Forum at the Samoset Resort on the Maine Coast in Rockport, Maine. The Samoset has great cuisine, phenomenal golf, superior customer service and is located near beautiful Camden Harbor. A highlight is a walk on the mile long Rockland breakwater to the restored operating light house. I highly recommend the Samoset! John
