Debra family with young children August 16, 2022
Positives: Gorgeous location. Of the hotels on Shelter Island, loved the location at the end. Beds were super, super plush and comfortable. Loved the campfires at night.
Negatives: First complaint is we booked a room described as a garden view room - the description should have said parking lot view room!! Very put off by the extra charges we were hit with. First a resort charge - really didn’t use any resort items other than pool and sat in view of fire pits (couldn’t get a seat at them). Then, they asked if we had a car - so another fee ($42) for parking (they said well you can park on street but have to move your car at midnight). Then get to the room. Water bottles provided ($5 a bottle). We’ve just stayed at 9 resorts up and down coast at same or higher rating level and almost all provided water at no charge. Coffee machine but no cream or sugar. Room service described not happening currently due to staffing issue. Toilet paper holder broken. Bathroom door slides open when you’re in bathroom. Bonfires are wonderful but impossible to get a chair at them. Pool was great and lounge chairs nice but it was very hot and couldn’t get a location in four hours under an umbrella. (Could have more umbrellas up). Daughter ordered food at pool - it took an hour to get it. Even directions to room when arrived. - walked around the whole building with luggage trying to find entrance to room. Simple direction from front desk staff would have avoided this. It’s the little things.
Beautiful resort but extra charges...

Positives: location
Negatives: no ramp to drop my paddle board and no smart tv; wasted hour trying how to connect phone to tv; travel lots 99% of all hotels and motels now have smart tvs and naked connecting much easier…. still loved the property and would stay again, just would be better prepared

Positives: location is good but overpriced
Negatives: they had a fire alarm test in the morning but we were not informed in the morning. this is upset because all of us were still asleep and once the alarm was on we were alarmed too and tried our best to run away…
bad, we will not come...
Adam family with young children April 20, 2022
Positives: fire pits were nice
Negatives: Rooms are ehhh. people walking in rooms above super loud. showers in nearby rooms sound like plane engines. shower didn’t drain. No service at the bar,(I realize it was a weekday) but something would be nice.
Not worth the $$$$$$.

Positives: It was quiet, excellent walks. Bali Hai restaurant had an excellent brunch. Centrally located. Could not hear flight travel.
Negatives: No complimentary water in the room. The coffee tray in the room had one kerig coffee pod. For the price, more staff at the front desk was needed to cut down wait time when checking in.

Very good
John young couple February 22, 2022
Positives: room was mostly nice
Negatives: this is not a resort. it’s just a hotel. rooms are ok. bathrooms are from another era. It was so disappointing to think we were booking into some sort of fun resort to find we were just stuck away in a room in a remote building looking at boats. I would have booked in a regular hotel in La Jolla or somewhere if I had know this was not really a “resort”. too expensive for what it is.
so disappointed.
