The staff here was excellent and left a great first impression. The room was clean and updated, and the pool / hot tub were nice. The continental breakfast - almost always the same at hotels - had different and better selection and REALLY good food - fresh fruits (watermelon, pineapple, cantaloupe) and coffee cake. Staff was helpful pointing out several good places to visit. Highly recommend.
Our room was a "suite". It was very comfortable for the 4 of us who stayed there. Clean and had a porch where you could sit and watch the ocean.
The hotel staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. The location to town and the Ogunquit Playhouse is excellent. They also host a rather good breakfast, if you are looking for something lite--also kid and big kid friendly!!
We have stayed at the resort several times and will continue to do so in the future!!
