“Fantastic Family Vacation”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We loved everything about this resort! The staff goes above and beyond to ensure you have a fantastic stay from the moment you arrive to the check-out process. We traveled with 14, 7, and 5 year old kids and there was something for everyone! The highlight was the kid's camp which is included with your stay; each day the van picked the kids up at 9 and whisked them off to field trips to the farm and fire station or other areas and then delivered them back at noon. I am one of those parents who never really thought about those programs before this trip, but am now a believer. Everyone in the family needs a bit of time to spend time doing something for themselves, the kids like being around other kids for a bit of the day and my husband and I enjoyed quiet breakfast/shopping trips or walks on the beach. When we got back together we shared our experiences over lunch and spent the rest of the day together...Excellent! We loved the walk from the sweeping lawn through the trail to the beach. The kids loved the heated pools, and so did we! We did the lighthouse tour through the concierge and I highly recommend that too! It was easy to get where we needed to be and had a fantastic tour! The only thing I can say that left me a bit less than impressed was the cost/value of the clam bake. While we had a great time being out on the lawn and seeing the reptile guy, I left feeling the cost wasn't quite worth the experience. I hate to even write about it since we had such an overwhelmingly positive experience and thanks to the Winnetu will most definitely be back! Thank you, thank you, thank you to the owner and staff...You have a first rate property and program!

Room Tip: We loved being in a suite overlooking the pool at the main resort...bring bikes if you can!

This was our first time to MV and we couldn't have been happier with this resort. It was wonderful to stay somewhere that was so kid friendly! The entire resort, the rooms, the grounds were very clean. I was a bit worried about some of the other reviews that made the walk to the beach seem very long. We had a 2 and 3 year old who had no problem making the walk and actually enjoyed it! Lure Grill was fantastic and the children's section is such a great help. Everything from the fire truck rides, to the face painting. There was always something going on. We did not take advantage of the morning children's program and we were kind of sorry we didn't. Can't wait to go back next year!

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.

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.
