Fodor's Review

Occupying 230 waterfront acres on the Rockland–Rockport town line, this all-encompassing resort offers luxurious rooms and suites with private balconies overlooking the water or the grounds. All are done up with warm color schemes and have plenty of amenities. La Bella Vita Ristorante, the Italian eatery, has an approachable elegance. Outside there's a stone terrace with a fire pit. Inside, the space flows into the more casual Enoteca Lounge, which has an antipasto bar. Next to the sloped-entry pool is another open-air bar. The 18-hole course has been ranked among the best in the region.

An Almost Perfect Resort

Our first stay at the Samoset was enjoyable. We knew at the get go that there was no beach and we were ok with that. The lovely zero entry pool provided a relaxing experience on a hot summer day. The tiered seating allowed for views of the pool and ocean. Waitress service is fantastic! The oceanfront room was very large. The views were nice. Our balcony was perfect for morning coffee but the AC unit vented right on our legs so we felt hot air on

a cool summer morning. La Bella Vita provides wonderful food for dinner. The pasta is flown in from Italy and the food seems like it is as well. Ocean views are a plus. Try the second tier banquette for a private experience and a view. The spa is just ok. Very sparse in its design. Therapists are fair. Front desk needs some tweaking. The gentleman who "welcomed" us seemed more interested in another party who needed a spot to cook their lobsters. We felt second rate. Later, we asked for directions to the Children's Chapel. When we got into the car, they were for another town. Thankfully we found the way ourselves. Would we return? Maybe.
