My sister and me stayed here for a couple of days this month having made a super last minute booking. Our room 31G was spacious and comfortable with separate living and sleeping areas and beautiful views of the sea and sunrise. The staff we met were very friendly and helpful. Would love to visit again slightly earlier in the year.

On our annual Girls Night Out, we stayed at the Masthead Resort. The MH is located on the quiet West End. The location is great. The place is super clean, the staff helpful and friendly and the view is unbeatable. I'd recommend anyone looking to escape and rejuvenate check the Masthead Resort out.

The room was a corner room on the beach, wonderful view,clean,accommodating,convenient to town and quiet. Thadia was just wonderful, and the staff was awesome. The best was the staff,and the views. The location was perfect, not downtown noise, yet 5 minute walk, next to a 5 star restaurant, the wifi was good. Steve/Kevin

Cute little room right on the water (31E). It was the perfect way to spend our anniversary. We sat outside on the little deck to enjoy wine and cheese. Lovely little spot. We will most definitely be back!!
