Great spot, Sean the dock master was awesome and got us all moored up. The dock itself is built for aircraft carriers, so solid you don’t feel a thing. Restaurants and pools are great 360 water views. May cost a little more than other marinas in the area but is worth it.
Sean ( dockmaster) and Harry & Cole( dockhand) run a great marina and were fantastic in terms of whatever needs boaters may have. Pleasure to deal with and one of the reasons we will be back.
Great amenities - pool was clean and well kept. No showers at all which was a little annoying. Other than that we had a great stay!
Great spot and the guys on the dock are very attentive. One thing to note is that currently (July 2020), there are no showers available due to COVID. This is something that I wish were were told before we committed. We were able to make the best of it and shower on the boat.
We had an amazing stay at Gurney’s! Shawn, Cole and Crew were great and took care of whatever we needed. We will be staying here again next year for sure!
Sean put us in the transient slip for 4 days and unfortunately we were exposed to direct waves and wind resulting in excessive boat motion. Even after requesting a move to other slips (which were available), we were not able to enjoy our boat or marina. I cancelled my reservation at Goat Island Marina for Gurney’s but will not make that mistake again. To top off, At the fireside bar, waited 1-1/2 for an entree and was overcharged and could not find waitress. Thanks Gurney’s for a miserable weekend and poor customer service. Won’t be back.
Shawn,Cole and crew were the best. They give Ritz Carlton service on the docks. As a COO of a multi million $ company one of my absolutes I demand of our employees is a great customer experience. The crew here delivered on all accounts!! Great floating docks, pump out at your slip and ice delivered to your boat. My new favorite marina👍
The dock was easy to get to and plenty of space to park larger boats. The views are fantastic and has access to everything you need.
Dock master assisted us in navigation to our slip and tying up. Great spot, restaurants if you do not want to get into town and Uber for heading into Newport.
It's always a pleasure to visit this marina. The dock staff are friendly and very accommodating.
Docks are great. New floating cement docks, with great access to pump out, water, electrical service. Hotel is nice too, with multiple dining options, access to pool, gym, etc. MUCH more to offer than the average marina! Contacting them upon arrival wasn’t easy. Didn’t respond to multiple hails on CH 9, didn’t answer the phone listed on the reservation. Dock hand finally showed up to help another boater, and we we able to get his attention. Once we got their attention, they gave us great assistance with lines, and electrical hookup. They helped us get off the dock cleanly at departure as well. So other than getting their attention, pretty decent experience!
Stayed two nights. Beautiful spot and hotel was lovely but not much service on dock. Called via VHF multiple times upon approach with no answer. Finally called hotel who said they would get Dock Master to dock. Still barely any guidance on where we were to go and barely any help docking on a windy day. Two guys from neighboring boats hopped off to help. Dock Master Sean was very accommodating when on dock but not there often. Nobody on docks when we left. Loved the hotel and will go back just for that but service to boaters is definitely subpar. Hotel also did not coordinate well with Dockwa and originally charged us one night which we had already prepaid using app.
Upon arrival on Wednesday there was no dockmaster or dock hands to explain the approach or to help tie up. Dockmaster Sean showed up on Thursday and was rude to my daughter. At $410.00 per night, I expected more
Very nice facilities. Sean (at the dock) was always INCREDIBLY helpful directing us on how to get into a spot between two multi-million dollar boats. He and the other guys were always willing to help with anything -- filling the ice boxes with ice and taking away garbage. It's not cheap to stay here, but they are very good.
Great facility and Sean and his team were very helpful
Place is beautiful. Docks are new and great. Only complaint was there weee no dock hands on leaving. I left at 10:00 am and need help from another boat owner next on the dock. For the price of dockage this should not happen.
Gurney’s continues to raise the bar for guest service. Dockmaster Sean and dockstaff Aspen are absolutely fantastic in every way. They do not just react, but think ahead and ask about potential needs. We will continue to stay here over and over.
Todd and staff excellent. Fair honest great service. Will be back!!!! Beautiful location
Most accommodating and professional service I’ve ever experienced as well as a world class facility
Very nice ...externally the building is very outdated.
Marina and staff were very helpful. Hotel and grounds were very nice. But, marina guests were not allowed to use the shower facilities (which were in the spa). We were directed to outdoor showers by the pool. Also entrance to hotel from marina was through restaurant. Those two issues make you feel like second class at first class hotel. Too bad.
stayed there for a short weekend. The staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. The floating docks and power were perfect. There's plenty of depth in the water. The gym at the hotel is more than adequate. did not use the spa or indoor/ outdoor pool. The hotel restaurants were very good! It's close to town but not within walking distance. Ubers are readily available. They offer a shuttle however we used our dinghy.
Facilities are excellent. Great Spa and workout room. Attentive dock crew..New floating docks. Marina is only 2 years old. They have courtesy shuttles to town (new Tesla SUVs). Good restaurants.
Great. Really enjoyed it. Marina was fantastic. Gurneys was great.
Dock master Todd was awesome as was all the marina help. Grady, Kieren, Patrick and Robin. Great place and hotel is a great resort
The marina staff was beyond Amazing! They were there upon arrival to assist with docking, and were incredibly helpful and attentive throughout the stay. The hotel shuttle to fort Adams for Folk fest was beyond expectations! We will Definitely be coming back!!
