Nice, well maintained marina!
The marina is under new management, as of a month ago (April 2021), so it is a work in progress. We would like to return next year, so hope that the marina gets its act together by then. Some pros and cons— The pros: - Great location at the Hyatt resort with use of all their facilities (pools, golf, tennis, spa, restaurants, etc., etc.) - Large marina with many empty slips ensured we weren't crowded or too near other boats. - Friendly staff. Prompt repairs. The cons: - The marina is in need of TLC. The boards are quite worn. Many of the water hook-ups leaked copiously. - The marina staff is very green. They weren't sure what size slip to give us. While the dock hands were present, they were no help with tying up. We asked about the tidal range; they had no idea.
Our stay was terrific! Brett, the dockmaster, is both helpful and knowledgeable. The others in the marina are friendly but not loud or intrusive. The marina is well located--close to everything but away from the fray. The only downside is the tight space in the marina. For our 54 foot boat, getting in and out of the slip was a real feat . . . moving a mere foot in the wrong direction would have been a disaster.
A mixed bag at Minneford. PROS: Close to lots of restaurants on City Island, well maintained floating docks, immaculate restrooms. CONS: Did not respond to phone calls the day of our arrival. Contacted via radio at mouth of marina and got confused instructions on our slip assignment. No dockhands to assist. The harbormaster left for the night without giving us a keycard to get back on the docks after dinner. Noisy with lots of people partying on Friday, Saturday nights.
