Great breakfast. Well maintained lawn.Great view. Never have to leave the island. Great place. Will be back again! Only problem is getting ice. Bring your own. Less of a wait for that. They do try hard to please you. Beach is less crowded than some others.

Stellar service, beautiful harbor view, and buffet breakfast was excellent. Really has the quintessential feel of a boutique hotel. Complimentary valet service along with complimentary shuttle service to restaurants around the island is so helpful. Hotel wifi worked well, too. Perfect location on the island. The only recommendation I would make is to provide a drying rack for wet clothing....

The Blockade Runner was a wonderful way to celebrate our son's last weekend before Kindergarten started. It was very relaxing for myself and my husband and it was almost impossible to get our kids out of the pool!

$250-$400 per night. Small bathrooms, low water pressure, no bath tub. Nice beach access and decent pool area but small. Beautiful lawn and landscaping. Complementary breakfast is nice but the drink and food prices are streep. $15+ for drinks. Poor overall value.

This resort was amazingly relaxing and the service could not have been better! We did not have one complaint from the second we drove up until we drove away... The service here is simply put "the BEST"! The pool area and the landscaping is just beautiful!

Even though we were here on business, we had a very relaxing stay. Great room decor and amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean. I have never seen it so blue. One of the best breakfast buffets hands down! And did I mention it was complimentary! The on site activities were great too! Went on a two hour sail that was...

Rooms superior, grounds well groomed, access to beach fast and safe with limited steps. Music at the pool bar was great. On site food way too expensive but in-room refrig. Take your own bottled water as the water there is terrible, island wide.

I have stayed here several times and it's always great! A very nice boutique hotel. They are located right on the beach with clean and comfortable rooms, a very good restaurant and pool bar and the staff are very polite and professional.

After living in and visiting Wilmington off and on over the past 25 years and only ever hearing good things about the property, I was very much looking forward to our stay at the Blockade Runner. However from the garish "Miami-themed" lobby (they were WAY off on that one) to the very sad and dirty finishes of the hotel room,...
