“Most enjoyable, as usual"”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

Just returned from a family vacation at Ocean Woods Resort where we stayed in the spacious upper four bedroom apartment overlooking the sparkling pool. There is also a two bedroom apartment downstairs, near the pool, where we have stayed for several years. If a family is looking for a 'home away from home', both of these apartments are very comfortable and convenient to all amenities offered . They are very clean and well equipped with beach towels, washer/dryer, televisions, large pots for family clam bakes, and grills. The lower apartment has a deck overlooking the nicely groomed grounds and the pond, which has been the setting for many lovely weddings. Upstairs we particularly enjoyed the screen porch for meals and just hanging out and relaxing.

On site is PJ's Pub, a cozy bar that has an expanded menu serving hamburgers to seafood dinners, while watching the latest game on television. There is also an attached deck where you can enjoy a beverage, a meal and quiet conversation.

Intimate weddings have been held on the deck, as well as much larger weddings are held under a tent on the grounds. We have observed several weddings of various sizes held at Ocean Woods over the years and they have been just lovely, and it is so convenient for the wedding party and guests to all be together in one area before and after the ceremony.

Kathleen and Peter and their friendly staff are most helpful and attentive to all their guests needs. They continue to make improvements constantly, and are very knowledgeable about the Maine area attractions, such as, restaurants, golf courses, riding stables, fishing and lobster boat tours, medical facilities, shopping outlets, and the best beaches.

The rooms are spacious, clean, bright and inviting with queen and king size beds, tastefully furnished and decorated, with romantic gas stoves in some rooms for those special occasions. Besides lovely weddings, Kathleen looks forward to hosting events for family/school reunions, group rallies, clubs, and business retreats. The off seasons are absolutely beautiful at Ocean Woods especially for couples looking for a place to relax after the rigors of summer, or to put away the winter clothes and enjoy a spring walk on Goose Rocks Beach! Give Kathleen and Peter a call soon. They look forward to meeting new friends and enjoy hearing from old friends who return frequently to Ocean Woods. We cannot to wait for our next visit.

What a wonderful gem we found in Kennebunkport. 4 days of total bliss! What more could we ask for? Lovely clean (impeccable)rooms beautifully decorated,everything at our disposable..beach towels, beach chairs, 2 mins. from the beach. Our breakfasts were definitely worthy of mention...all the necessary food groups to get us started on our way. We can't say enough about the family atmosphere where were treated with the utmost care & respect in making our holiday a memorable one. Thanks to the staff for their professionalism, glad to see it still exists. The price was RIGHT too!! We shall return again & again.

Great continental breakfast, all together excellent service from staff. A relaxing, easy-going atmosphere. you could not ask for more..........!! ooops not to forget,speaking from experience, very reasonable price for the area....

Room Tip: ask for a room on the ground floor facing the pond

We stayed at Ocean Woods in July and loved it. It is a very comfortable hotel with great service in a beautiful location near the beach. The room was well decorated, the bed was very comfortable and the linens were new. It was an extra large King sized room with plenty of space. One of the better rooms I have ever stayed in. Goose Rocks Beach is a fantantic sandy beach -- we enjoyed our strolls along the beach and the kids loved playing in the soft waves and tide pools. Breakfast was included and was very good. We also ate in the hotel our first night and enjoyed Maine lobster and cocktails on the deck. Very relaxing!

There was also a wedding there during our stay under a tent. It looked like a beautiful site for a wedding. We loved our whole expereience and hope to be back soon.

Room Tip: The King suites are very nice --lots of space and comforts

We stayed here for a weekend to attend a nearby wedding. The location was perfect, but our room was not. We were on the lowest level of rooms and the room had been sprayed with room freshener to disguise the musty smell - not sure which was worse! We had two adjoining rooms and both were in need of updating - the rugs, bedding, bathrooms, TV's and some of the furniture. The beds were hard as rock and the pillows were the worst. Bring your own! The windows were cracked, dirty and stained. It looked like some of the rooms had been refurbished fairly recently on the upper levels, so if you stay here, request an upper level. We also looked out on the parking lot, so heard cars coming and going. The walk to the beach is a very nice feature. The room was clean enough, but the sheets old and worn. BUT... you can't beat the price for the location!

Room Tip: Ask for an upper level facing the road, not the parking lot.

I stayed there most recently in September for a night, but have stayed longer on many occassions and have enjoyed nothing but the best experience. Kathleen and Peter are friendly, accomodating hosts. The facility is always impeccably clean. My room was large, and the bed extremely comfortable. Ocean Woods just feels like a second home. It's close enough to K'port to get there in 5 minutes, but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. Goose Rocks Beach, the nicest beach in Maine, is a short walk away. On an earlier trip there this summer I ate at the on-site "pub," PJ's. I had steak tips and there were far too much steak for me to finish, and the meal was reasonably priced. Our waitress could not have been nicer. That was our first meal at PJ's, but there will be many more in th e future.
I do travel to Maine often from upstate New York, and Ocean Woods is without a doubt my favorite resort in that area.

My husband took our 1st trip to Maine not knowing what to expect from this hotel. We read a negative review or two, BUT desperate to get away we decided to rough it for the weekend if thats what it came to. Well, we were pleasantly surprised, Kathleen & Peter greeted us warmly & upgraded our room when we checked in. The room was clean and very spacious. It is very close to Goose Rocks Beach & the town where all the restaurants are. We felt the continental breakfast was enough to get us thru to lunch. Overall our stay was fantastic & we commend Kathleen & Peter for their hard work in keeping this hotel in good shape despite the size. P.S. As an added bonus we saw Pres. Bush Sr. & none of the restaurants in town disappointed!
