The dock crew who catch your lines as you back into the slip are fantastic. They gave great directions to our slip and as soon as they could get onto our boat, they secured all the lines. John, the dock master was very helpful in making the reservation especially since we took advantage of the Safe Harbor member benefits. Great "shop" to grab coffee and a breakfast sandwich in the morning. And of course, what a beautiful location.

this a huge property....very large boats...hotel rooms the whole 9 yards....fixed docks make it difficult if your dingy is on your stern....the wifi is bad and the restrooms and showers are few for such a large marina...not all of us have a 60 ft Bertram and we use the showers at the marina....heated pool....the guys that help tie up your boat are the best I have seen which helps since you back down between 2 or 3 pilings to a fixed (no floating docks) dock.

Staff is excellent and knowledgeable, and the pool/restaurant/activities facilities and grounds are top notch. WiFi at the docks was not great, and the bathrooms could use some updating. The chemical mixture in the pool by the villas was likely off a bit. Both of my kids' eyes had major irritation, which has never happened before.

Greatly overpriced, food quality was horrible and cold, food service quality was less than that of a fast food restaurant. Crumbling docks. Peeling paint on the buildings. Oily scum line in the main pool. The best part of our stay was leaving.

The location and employees at the marina are great. This is an awesome nice resort with lots of amenities. We experienced a boat several down from us that was partying until 2:00am. Not fun! As a new Safe Harbor marina, the should begin to police this behavior much better.

Gurney's Star Island is the best marina anywhere near the Northeast. Great location, excellent staff, top restaurants. Can't think of going anywhere else in Montauk.

After a reasonably pleasant stay, including a good meal at Il Forno, we encountered an unfortunate event wholly created by Guerney's themselves. While departing the slip, a loose dock line on the piling, apparently there for many months as it was slimy, wrapped around my prop. Although this was very poor marina management and seamanship, stuff happens, and we as mariners deal with it. How the Dockmaster 'dealt with it' blew me away. While another boater fended my vessel off, keeping me from being pinned between boat and piling, [THANKS SO MUCH LANCE FROM 'OFFICE SPACE'/ MADISON CT] I DOVE WITH MASK/ SNORKEL AND CUT THE LINE AWAY. The Dockmaster came by, shrugged his shoulders and walked away. When I went up to office he was busy answering some critical emails and could just barely muster a 'gee sorry' response. Apparently for $400/ night Guerney's lets their customers assist each other in correcting their mistakes and hide away in the office hoping to not be found. Very poor service indeed. We will not be back. Chris/ Northport NY

This place really is super. The docks are nice, the dockhands are the best we’ve ever come across. The grounds are beautiful, 2 outside pools,1 indoor pool that saved the day for our kids when it rained. They gave us all umbrellas to keep when we headed into town on the FREE shuttle. The front desk also gave our kids each a stuffed animal crab. The restaurants are good with multiple options from fancy to take out. I can’t say enough… I think it’s my new happy place

Always a pleasure staying at Gurney’s Star Island! Guy, David, Dennis, and the rest of the gentleman in the dock office run a great show, are so helpful and accommodating. And fun! The resort amenities are wonderful. We love the cafe and the restaurant, sitting poolside, listening to great music, enjoying the hip ambiance. Gurney’s does all of their project with great style! There is also a Gurney’s Shuttle Bus which will escort you into town and their other Oceanside resort, which has a first-class spa. And there is a very vibrant fishing scene out on the docks. Everyone is so warm and friendly. We shall return again and again. Thank you, Gurney’s!

We liked the marina and the dock hands were great. The restaurant was unorganized and I split a bill with someone I was having dinner with and they charged him half and me the entire bill. They said that was normal and I would only be charged half? Never heard that before. Well they took the full amount so now I have to call my CC. Pain

What a fantastic trip! The Dockhands here are through the roof exceptional, they can have you tied up with 6 lines by the time you’re even shutting your engines down. Both John & Guy from management make you feel super welcome and can answer any questions you may have for the duration of your stay.

My husband and I recently stayed at Gurney’s Star Island Marina for 4 nights. We have been coming to this marina for the past five years. From the time we arrived, until the end when we departed, everything was great! All of the marina staff are top notch, but special mention of Dennis who provides such skill when docking boats, and also of John. We encountered a problem with our boat upon departure, and we felt John went over and above the norm with his assistance to us. This was truly appreciated as he called in Forest from SI Yachts who was quickly able to rectify the issue with our boat. In addition, we used the shuttle service to downtown several times. Raul is a very helpful driver who seems to go out of his way to help the guests; he demonstrates the high-quality service that Gurneys is known for. We will be returning again next month, and are looking forward to our stay. Would definitely recommend this marina to others.

Nicest marina we’ve stayed at. Staff was so helpful and kind. Liam was very timely in helping us dock and getting us in easily. John got us all set up with our reservation and helped us get a courtesy car to explore for a couple of hours. Nicest courtesy car ever. Good location with docking ease. Beautiful marina. Great experience. Would recommend.

Great Deck Hands, very crowded, both pools were mobbed. Just average food in restaurants and portions were a joke is some cases. They assigned us a 17.5 ft wide slip for a 16.5 wide boat in front of the villas really? The first evening the 50 amp service died and we couldn't find another post that was working anywhere on the dock. It took until 3 pm the following afternoon to get fixed. The whole electrical grid for the villa docks is in need of some serious investment/replacement. When asked the front desk said the shuttle was not running to its sister location in Montauk either. We don't mind paying a bit more to visit a luxury resort, but there was very little real luxury that we could find.

Recent stay was great. Dock staff were all excellent, facilities were clean. Only issue is the resorts treatment of boaters. Having previously stayed the bike rental was always a big reason why we stay here. This trip we were told that because of people leaving bikes on the docks that they no longer rent to boaters. Paying a premium to dock and not being offered all the amenities is something that will probably have us looking elsewhere for our next trip to Montauk.

Well going there many times previously it COVID has certainly taken its toll on this establishment. When you offer a fraction of the amenities you cannot charge $500.+ for 45 ft boat. It is nothing more than a place to slip your boat.

This was our first visit since it became Gurneys. We needed to stay this Labor Day weekend where our adult children could come out by car. We decided to try Gurneys recognizing it is very expensive but understanding we wanted a resort like experience. They delivered on every front from accommodating our early arrival, great slip location that was near the action but far enough away to not keep you up, superb dockhands who knew what they were doing, a great restaurant (Showfish), very well maintained tennis courts and very helpful and service oriented staff. They made sure our 14 month old granddaughter was comfortable in Showfish and even went so far as to gift her a Gurneys whale plush doll. Wonderful family vacation and worth the extra expense.

Great place but asked for bocci balls for court, told they were getting them, waited over an hour to find out they didn’t have any. Then saw them for sale in gift shop for $35 a set. Couldn’t they have provided to us or at least let us know. No cable TV at marina??? Can’t give a 5 star resort 5 stars for these oversights. In fairness, they did waive the resort fees for the inconvenience.

Loved the location of our slip. Overall great. The boat next to us BLASTED MUSIC at night. At the takeout shop Where coffee and muffins were served the bagel was stale and the to go salads were embarrassingly scarce looking (maybe 3 pieces of lettuce ($12). Very unappetizing to say the least. that really shouldn’t be at an upscale resort.

Out overall marina stay was fantastic. Super friendly crowd on the docks and dockhands are easy enough to flag down as they go by or on VHF. Free ice is a plus. Great food onsite at the restaurant or delivered to the boat, and a little ice cream shop (were all great). Town is a short Uber ride with more great restaurants. A bit disappointed on how difficult it is to get a seat by the pool as it is not very large thus has limited seating (will probably utilize the shuttle to the beach next time). Beyond that we loved it. We will definitely be back!

The Montauk Yacht Club is a very nice marina, but beware of what you paying for, at check out you have so-called surcharges that they dont tell you about when making the reservations and check in. Dont get me wrong the place is awesome, the staff is great and very helpful but if they stayed on top of a few things, like make sure their is hot water in the morning for your shower that would be a little helpful. The shuttle to town was really helpful as far finding places to go and eat. Would I stay somewhere else? Probably not been there twice, we may go back again?
