My husband and I stayed for a week in a one bed timeshare apartment. Not the biggest of apartments by US standards but perfectly adequate and well equipped for two with separate bedroom, sitting/dining room, small kitchen and bathroom with an over bath shower. Each apartment also has air con, wifi and balcony with table, chairs and sun lounger with...

It sounds like you enjoyed many of the resort’s amenities as well as exploring our local areas. To read that you really enjoyed your stay...

Have been going to Samoset for many years. Superb, welcoming staff, fine accommodations, beautiful location on the Penobscot bay. An all-around wonderful place to use as a base for sightseeing, hiking, gourmet dining, or to partake in a variety of sports including golf on a world class course or, if you want to just hang out at a magnificent pool...

First time here visit for our 30th anniversary. Check in was quick and Staff was friendly. Upgraded Ocean view room was large with small deck and average comfort for the bed. The building itself was very quiet. The health club staff was good, but the indoor pool was noisy and had a very heavy chlorine smell. The outdoor pool and...

I'm a huge fan of the coast of Maine and the Samoset has an amazing view. That's undeniable. Other luxury travelers will notice aging infrastructure. We had The Breakwater Suite which is ready for a new look. Again this is the coast of Maine -- there are not a lot of choices, so I do appreciate the option. But where...

We spent our honeymoon here and enjoyed great weather, a wonderful dinner, and comfortable sleeping on the comfy bed. We were are bit surprised by the lack of sound deadening between our bathroom and the guest next to us. We could clearly hear all of their conversations at night. This dropped my rating from 5 stars to 4. Our room...

We just returned from the Samoset and I have to say, I am a bit disappointed. This resort has amazing views and grounds. The view from the pool is just beautiful.

Amazing resort located on the ocean in Maine. Beautiful pool overlooking the ocean. 18 hole golf course, and a spa - something for everyone. Not a "beach", but you can still get close to the ocean walking on the Breakwater, a rock jetty leading out to a lighthouse. A gorgeous, relaxing retreat that you will want to go back to...
