“Get's Better Every Year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

We recently returned from our third stay at the Winnetu and are already planning our visit next Summer. The resort is very well run - as evidenced by us having met the owner who walked around the pool and spoke to all the guests.
Our 5 and 7 year old daughters love the day camp and the evening program - as well as the turtle pond.

Stayed July 2014

This was probably the best place to stay on the island. It was our first time to the Marthas Vineyard wast sure what to expect. IT was very pleasant, the grounds are very nice. Very kid friendly - they have nice sitters watching the children at dinner (there is a playroom in the dining area). We had a cottage room with two bedrooms and full kitchen and it was amazing. The rooms are spectacular in newly renovated. Really was very impressed with the rooms (but then again your paying a good amount per night so i would expect the accommodations to be above average - which they were, and then some.

Staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. Really felt like the cared.

The beach was nice - water was ok, nothing to talk about - beach itself was huge and scenic and windy.

The pool was nice, very packed cause its pretty small.

The island itself was very quaint and charming. You need to rent a car if you plan on leaving the grounds and seeing the island. MV Rentals was great. The hotel does provide bus service to edgartown which is nice and convenient since parking can be a pain sometimes.

All in all the resort was great.

The restaurants on the island where very average.

I honestly don't think i will go back to Martha s Vineyard - but only because its not really what Im looking for in a vacation - i love Caribbean beaches and weather.

Room Tip: Get a cottage Room - don't be too concerned with beach view, as it very far away and limited vie...

This is a beautiful location next to the beach. The standard of the lodging is excellent - bedding is comfortable and good quality, layout is excellent. There was no problem fitting a family of five. Some of the rooms can be dark as was ours which is unfortunate - this just doesnt reflect the Beach holiday feel when there's not enough light. Also disappointing for me was the fact that not all facilities are on site . For example the gym is approximately, 1km down the road as is the second swimming pool. They do provide a shuttle service but if like me you just like to sneak out of the room to do a quick hour in the morning, its just not possible.
The service is excellent and the buildings and grounds are beautiful.
I appreciate all the more now that Im at the Oceanside Resort in Brewster... Review to follow

We just had a great stay at the Winnetu. It was our first and we'll definitely be back. My kids made friends instantly at the resort and were amused the entire time. The kid's programs were great & non-stop - the morning camp-like activities, the afternoon antique firetruck rides with snacks & face painting, the evening programs (movies & dinner). The room was perfect - kitchenette is much appreciated with little kids. Service was great too. We have food allergies and they handled them beautifully, especially in the kid's programs. The staff could not have been more helpful, attentive, and friendly with each & every request we made, and we made lots!

Room Tip: Get a room on the 3rd floor facing west (we were in 315) for a great view of the sunset that you can...

We had a great vacation at the Winnetu. The rooms were spacious with beds for both kids and a little kitchenette and 1 1/2 bathrooms. The resort is across the street from gorgeous South Beach, where we were given chairs to use for our stay. The pool was very nice too. The shuttle bus made it easy to go into Edgartown for dinner and it was an easy bike ride to go in for breakfast. The staff was incredible helpful and friendly. We loved the resort and will be back next summer.

I was at the Winnetu at the end of June as part of a large family reunion. The main reason I am writing this review is to say what an absolute pleasure the staff is at this resort. I would like to say hi to all the staff that always had friendly smiles, welcoming "Hellos", and an attitude that made you feel like you were surrounded by friends.
A special thanks to Richel, Lexie, & Juma for being so awesome; it was like saying good-bye to old friends when I had to leave. I actually sought them out to say good-bye because they are such great people.
The rooms were great and so was the resort but it is the people at the resort that will make you feel so welcome.

My husband and I have been long time ( 20 years now) MV visitors and have found each of our Winnetu stays to be fantastic. The location is great- ocean front and away from the busyness of the more touristy areas, but close enough to enjoy all that those areas of the island have to offer.

The rooms are perfect - clean, comfortable, relaxed - just what a beach stay should be.

The amenities are great and we just love, love, love the Winnetu!!!

Room Tip: ask for an upper floor to gain the best views.
