FIRST REVIEW July 2018: We have been talking about coming here for years and seem to go everywhere else in the area but Oxford. Finally made it on July 7&8 with three other boats in our group. We absolutely loved the town of Oxford. This marina is in a perfect location and is well maintained. We stayed at the boatyard side which we liked as it was quieter on Sat night. The amenities which are mostly on the other side including fabulous bathrooms and pool and gas grills were nice and only a very short walk. Could use more bathrooms as there was a line Sat night. When the boatyard work resumed Mon morning it was loud and I'm not sure I would enjoy this side during the week but we were leaving anyway. Capsize restaurant and the famous ice cream store are right there. We biked and walked all over town and truly enjoyed it. Plan to come back in August for another weekend. My husband says it's now his favorite marina and price is very reasonable too. UPDATE September 2019: Can I give more than 5 stars? Never made it back last year due to weather issues but made sure to come here in May of this year and again this past week. We stayed on the marina side both of these times and absolutely loved both stays again as did our friends who came along. Jeff and his staff are top notch, efficient and super friendly. We have friends who keep their sailboat here and they love it as well. If we lived closer, this would be our home marina. Thanks, Jeff!! See you next year! Update: May 2021: We never got back to the marina in 2020 due to the construction and the pandemic. We made sure to get there early this season and spent two days May 23 and 24. The new floating docks are just beautiful as is the whole marina. Staff is great as always. Our only issue was that we tripped the breaker on the power pedestal a few times. Once it was one of our A/Cs and once it was a coffee maker but it was not even consistent. We understand that the electrical is up to the latest codes and many boats may have some issues. From my reading up on it it seems like many older boats ( ours is 2006 cruiser 42 ft) and even some newer boats can have issues so keep that in mind. We know it was not our power cords. We will definitely go back and we think we worked out how to mot trip the breakers.
We have been here many times over the past five years and came for a couple days the week before Labor Day. Dockhands Alex and John answered the radio hail right away and directed us to our slip. They offered a floating slip but we preferred the fixed dock and they put us exactly where we wanted and were very helpful and nice. Docks are in very average condition with some loose boards and some warped but they were going around making repairs. The bath house is adequate and very clean. I’ve seen others complain about no hot water but did not have that problem. Some people expect super luxurious bath house because this is a Hyatt and are disappointed but it’s average and works fine. It’s a bit of a walk to the pool but not that different from other large marinas and they will take you by golf cart if you ask. The grounds and multiple pools are gorgeous and we can bring our dogs to the grassy area near one pool so they can hang with us. The whole place is super dog friendly. A few restaurants on site are nice but our favorite is closed for the year due to COVID-19. There is a small beach with water craft and paddle boards etc for rental and bikes to rent. A full golf course, mini golf, tennis courts, Volleyball court, indoor gym add to the fun. We love this marina and were disappointed to see it so empty. It’s a great place. Come on folks, go visit!
One of our very favorite marinas to visit. Even after all the Covid-19 stuff, the marina did not disappoint. Although are still catching up with some of the landscaping it is still Quite beautiful. Everyone is following safe practices but not overdoing it. Restrooms were sparkling clean. Restaurant across the street had fantastic food as usual and ice cream. Great job on the marina everyone. We will be back soon!
