We visited Black's Island for Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed the resort very much. The staff was super helpful, the island was beautiful, the water was amazing...we simply did not want to leave! If you are looking for a laid back, "off the grid" type of vacation, this is definitely your place. Our family loved it and can't wait to... More

This is a place everyone should come to once in a lifetime to see the views, sunsets and pure relaxation Yes, it is a Island so there are limits to and from land, but the ferry boat rides are every three hours- Can not get any better than that!

Let me start by saying that I would love to demand my money back form these folks but form the looks of things, the money is already gone. The place is marketed as an exclusive, high end getaway and I suppose that COULD be true. We arrived and were picked up promptly. Turns out they are "closed" during the winter... More

Black Island resort is a small beautiful island with around 20 2 bedroom 2 bath rustic but well equipped houses on it. Looks like Gilligan's island or some other tropical paradise, unlike the surrounding area. Some have a loft with a twin bed for kids. This is not the Ritz so don't expect it to be. It is comfortable and... More

We had a nice time. The place had beautiful views, kayaks around the island, and rabbits running around. Really cool. The main drawback is getting back and forth to the island. It limits you on grabbing dinner on the mainland. Also, the ferry was not reliable on the times that they give you. There is no food on the island,... More

Visited in 2014 and decided to return in 2015 for another relaxing vacation, this did not happen. Will not be returning to the island for anymore vacations. Restaurant they had there in 2014 was closed. Was not told this when we booked and we did not bring food with us. Totally not worth the price. There were several other mishaps... More

My husband and I stayed in August 2014. We enjoyed it very much. Our bungalow was very clean and we didn't have any maintenance issues.
