Wentworth by the Sea has been a regular stop for us on Mischief boat when transiting from North/South. Every stop was a very nice experience with no surprises. Docking, fueling, etc happening as expected, wanted. This past fall, 2022, dock-master Brendan decidedly went out of his way to take care of us. That was very much appreciated. The security, repair, maintenance and dock operations are terrific, and again - as it should be. We appreciate being at Wentworth. Thank you, Brad & Gretchen Collins MV Mischief, Selene 60

I cannot rave enough about Stunning Wentworth by the Sea! We were so happy to have discovered it this season and it shall be a destination we shall anticipate sailing to every summer from The Hamptons. Terry and Hannah, in administration, are the absolute best!! They had been so gracious and accommodating from the very beginning of needing to tweak our arrival and departure schedule, a few weeks before arrival. Every question and concern I had, not knowing the area, they assuaged me and gave so much of their time. Jordan was great in helping with the lines. The facility and the security are stellar! The docks are so nice. We were on the A Dock. We had great neighbors, and a lovely view. We really enjoyed all the restaurants on the premises—Latitudes, near the marina, Salt, in the hotel, and breakfast at The Green Bean. The hotel is magnificent and so many places to sit, read, converse and cogitate—during a month long sailing trip, being solidly on terra firma was well-appreciated! I was going to use the indoor pool one evening but, as it turned out, I didn’t, but I was given a tour of the spa and indoor pool, and next season, I shall definitely book some spa treatments and make use of the warm and inviting indoor pool. One of the greatest amenities for us was the loner car the marina offers. We normally bike all around or Uber on these long trips, and occasionally rent a car. Having a new, wonderful Chevy Equinox at our disposable was such a lovely addition to our stay! Aside from exploring beautiful New Castle, we drove to, and spent time in, Portsmouth—such a vibrant, well-kept town.lovely gardens down by the waterfront. And we stocked up on Provisions at a large market. We couldn’t have been happier with every element of our stay at Wentworth, including a must for boaters—visiting nearby Isles of Shoals. My only disappointment with the marina was the laundry facilities. The marina should really invest in new machines. I frustratingly lost an amount of quarters in the dryers and there were no more quarters to be had anywhere—not at the restaurants or at the marina, nor the hotel front desk or in the laundry room. Unable to start the machines, my laundry sat for hours in the dryers, until a compassionate restaurant customer dug up some quarters from her purse. There is an app that services the machines, but there is no internet in the laundry room, so I couldn’t scan the machines. All in all, the experience was dismaying on a beautiful morning, and although Terry and Hannah felt so bad about it, there was nothing they could do. Anyway—this is a very minor complaint in the midst of such bliss and joy!! I was so sad to depart extraordinary Wentworth by the Sea and can easily spend a week there next summer! Thank you, all!!!

Good facilities, including a loaner vehicle, and friendly staff. The marina’s pump-out was out of service but the staff arranged for Royal Flush to come by and give us a pump-out. We were disappointed that the access to the Marriott Pool and pool-side bar had become much more expensive since my last visit to Wentworth-by-the-Sea.

We always enjoy staying at Wentworth. The staff is reachable and courteous. The docks are well maintained and the landscaping is amazing. Usually dockage is readily available. Note: the hotel is now charging marina guests to use the pool. Not the fault of the marina. We did find a lovely (free) beach to dinghy to just across the bay at the Odiorne Point State Park. Great breakfast at Green Bean's!

Great setup, calm harbor, super nice staff and clean new facilities. The only part that sucks (as mentioned by other reviewers) and is not marina but rather hotel (not connected to safe harbor) as mentioned hitting you for 40.00 a head per day to use a mediocre pool, also regardless of time you arrive, this was important to us with young kids. To end on good note though paddled over to beaches and had some great meals, lovely weekend spot. Althea

Too bad about Marriott buying the Wentworth Hotel, the pool and Latitudes Restaurant. Now it will cost you $40 per person, per day to use the pool and Latitudes Restaurant, which once was an excellent eatery with creative, well prepared cuisine is now little more than now just another mediocre hotel restaurant. The staff at the marina were wonderful, polite and very eager to help the boater. The facilities are very clean and up to date and from a marina's perspective, one of the nicer marina's we've visited. other than that don't expect too much.

It was our first time staying at the Wentworth Marina and we were not at all disappointed with the marina, Truly a first class, well maintain marina with great security, friendly staff, even provide 2 loner cars in case you need to run to town and the Dock hand Lucy was great at our arrival. Boaters beware, if you are planning on going into Portsmouth for the day or evening be prepared for long waits for cabs in either direction. The local story is that Uber and Lyft destroyed the local Portsmouth cab companies and then the Uber/Lyft drivers dried up. We waited for over an hour each time to catch cabs for downtown runs, a destination that is only about 3 miles away. If you have a OB dinghy I suggest you bring it and run yourself downtown to Prescott Park and tie up there.

The marina is beautiful and very well maintained. The dock assistant was very polite and helpful. However, for the price the amenities were disappointing. There is a $40 a day per person added charge to use the pool. The dockside restaurant was closed (all of Saturday night and at 6pm Sunday night.) The small coffee/snack cafe was also closed at the dock. When we tried to have a casual dinner and watch the Sox/Yankees Wild Card duel at Salt, the main restaurant at the hotel, only one TV was working and it was monopolized by one man watching college football. The second night we decided to go to a sports bar in town to watch the next game in the series. We called an Uber easily to get there but at 11pm we had to wait 45 minutes to find an available car home. All in all, for the dock fees, next time we will stay on the town dock to be closer to everything, without missing much at the marina.

Outstanding facility and very helpful staff. Great food options onsite, courtesy car, excellent laundry and showers. What more could you ask for? Not cheap but worth it. Beware that the marina is populated by sports fishing boats. The one next to me left at 4:30 am and returned at 10:30 pm. There was no sleeping through it. But I don’t recall this happening when I stayed last summer, so I think I was unlucky with my slip assignment this year. Overall, great place.

The place was great, showers clean and free- docks were clean and spacious. My only wish would be for longer service hours of operation. We were a late arrival (5:30 pm) and early (7am) departure but would have liked to get pool passes and ice. The marina is open til 5, and opens at 8:30. Also the restaurants close too early too- Latitudes was on the list but closed before we got up the hill.

If your idea of a relaxing upscale marina includes a large, raucous, boozy indoor/outdoor costume party (lots of wigs, zero Covid protective masks), on a mega powerboat sporting twin Trump flags, this place could be your cup of tea. Management did not want to quiet this transient boor— probably because megas pay so much more per linear foot. We’ll skip this marina next time.

Wentworth is a first class marina - among the best quality docks we have discovered on our cruise up/down the east coast. The resort offers a full menu of amenities - spa, exercise room, pool, etc. This is a great location for a few days of relaxation on a cruise. We found the fairway between C & D docks to be narrow - we are 37 feet and found little space to maneuver - plan your docking carefully. The restrooms and laundry were fine but the mens showers up from D dock reminded me of a high school gym - no privacy.

Stopped here twice as part of a trip to Maine, and was it was our favourite marina. Staff at the office were extremely accommodating, friendly and helpful. Only slight let down was that the dock hands not so much. We were towards the end of the docks which afforded us great views of the river. We appreciated the use of a courtesy car to stock up and do a quick tour of the area; having The Green Bean right there for breakfast, as well as clean head/showers. Everything we needed, and more that we did not get to experience on this trip. Thank you!!
