This facility never confirmed our reservation when it went under new management. The old owners had confirmed our reservation a year earlier. Two other couples had the same non-response. We were very disappointed with the new customer service.

This year's rate was fine - what was quoted last year and honored this year. Included golf, but not cart. The cancelation policy shown below first reads that cancelation more than 60 days prior to stay results in refund. Read on - it only applies to flexible rate, which is substantially more than standard rate. It gives about a 20% discount to golf. t's very hard to figure what the resort to justify an increase of such a magnitude that we would end up spending about three times as much as this year. Didn't like that we had to pay for three weeks on check-in. Hard to know how the owner states the quiet hours are enforced. There is no number to call to have any action taken. We had noise from a close-by cabin until midnight. When they did leave the next day, we didn't follow up by asking that the owner monitor the situation. I won't repeat what the other reviewers found as problems. Haven't decided what we'll do next year, but it won't be Rustico for three weeks! All of the above doesn't mean that it's not the best place in PEI for golf, location and the views.

Humble golf clubhouse with exceptional food and service. Would highly recommend checking it out. We had the lobster ravioli, pear salad and the burger. All were absolutely delicious! We wish we had the chance to try more of the items on the menu. Met the owners who were friendly and welcoming.

At one time, not too long ago, this was a very nice family oriented property in a very beautiful and hospitable province. However, as regards the property, that is no longer the case. We were a group of 11 people who occupied 3 cabins for a 2 day stay - our 2nd annual family outing at this resort. While the cabins and the facilities were quite rustic, they were clean and the service offered by the previous owners and staff made for an enjoyable experience. That is why we returned this past August. The property was purchased sometime during the past 6 months by someone named Dave Saunders. I don't know who he is but, given what I heard from other guests and based on our our own experience, I do know he clearly doesn't have much understanding about the hospitality industry. My qualifications for making this statement comes from having personally spent 45+ years in that industry as a senior manager with industry leading companies such as Marriott and Compass Group. We had to battle him to honour the reservations and rates we had been quoted by the previous owners. At all times we felt we could be kicked off the property if we came forward with an issue. As we had to pay for our rooms on arrival I can only imagine what difficulty we would have getting a refund if we decided to leave early or got kicked off the property. In fairness, I will say that the food offered in the restaurant has improved considerably. Also, the golf course was in good condition. It is a terrible shame to see this family oriented resort suffer such a negative change with respect to guest services. We definitely will not return. Having said that, I can't imagine Dave Saunders really cares.........at the moment.

We have stayed for three years. Cabins run down but minimally clean and minimal features needed. Now we find out that the price per cabin for the same stay will be doubling. I cant imagine who would want to pay those prices for a non existant level of service and quality. Our cabin neighbours had mice and ants, our dishwasher broke, the "rebuilt" deck barely felt secure enough to walk on. This place has a lot of issues. When it was affiordable - you could look past, but at nearly 6000 for a weeks stay, its ridiculous bordering on highway robbery. I'm not sure why they wanted to set fire to all the goodwill this location had - but they clearly have as all the prior guests Ive spoken to are all livid and will not be returning. At the current prices I would avoid this location like a bowl of bad mussels.

A group of 8 friends had been going here for past 10 years. Everything was great and had enjoyed past years but this year was different. Showed up this year to find out place was sold and under new management. So we arrived on Tuesday to find out new owner Dave Saunders had increased the price by 180 dollars per person. They would not let us check in unless we paid in full and people were very rude and not very friendly ( please bring Martha back). We had a down payment made 2 months and had a set price already negotiated and owner got upset at one friend because he didn’t agree we should pay more. Anyway Dave the owner kicked him off property but said 7 of us could pay and stay lol. Ended up leaving and golfing in cavendish for day. Will never go back to North Rustico Resort again !!!!

My family and I stayed at Rustico Resort July 15-25 2022. We traveled from NB, NS, and PEI to gather for an annual vacation together- this was my 5th year returning to this resort. We knew the business had changed ownership in the spring of 2022 and was now owned by a man named David Saunders. It pains me to write this negative review because we enjoyed our stays immensely in years past and value the business the previous owners, Martha and John, had built. The cottages are dated and could use updates, but they were always clean, free of vermin, and the hospitality we received was excellent- that is a large reason why we kept going back. That all changed drastically this trip. When we arrived, our reservation was no where to be found. Finally, they found our reservation. We were asked to pay in full at check in- something I had never experienced at any hotel/cottage/resort establishment. I questioned the need for this, as it immediately made me feel uncomfortable. I was told by the two women who were at the front desk that it was “how Dave wanted it done’- I expressed my displeasure but we had never had issues there before, so I relented and paid. 2.5 days into our stay I discovered a dead mouse in our kitchen- I'd never smelled a dead mouse before and man, it was gross. We were offered no apology, no good will gesture for this incident- on the contrary, while David was on his way out of our cottage, holding the dead mouse with needle nose pliers, he said that we hadn’t paid a $20/day + HST pet fee for our dog and we needed to pay that asap. We have brought our dog to Rustico Resort every year with us and I do not recall ever being charged extra to have her on the property. I didn’t think it was appropriate to ask for additional funds from us partway through our stay, and I felt it was in very poor taste to do so while removing a dead mouse from our unit. I took no action to pay the fee he asked for. Dave then proceeded to try to bully me into paying by putting up a large sticky note on a bulletin board, directly behind where breakfast is served every morning for all guests to see, that said “C4 JANE DOE. Dog at cottage. Didn’t mention at check in. Didn’t pay yet!!! $230”. I felt this was extremely inappropriate, a privacy issue by listing my full name and what cottage I was staying in, and a way of shaming me into paying a pet fee that we weren’t informed of and didn’t agree to at check in. I subsequently had a few more interactions with David Saunders, all of which he was rude and unprofessional in. His solution for my displeasure with our experience was to suggest we leave early. At the end of our conversations, I understood that he would not be expecting payment for the pet fee of $230. Apparently there had been a misunderstanding there because after we left the property (we didn’t see a need to go into the front desk before departing- we had already paid, we weren’t interested in rebooking based on our experience, so we cleaned our unit and left) I received a call and a voicemail from David, indicating if I didn’t call and pay $230 by the end of the day, he would take me to small claims court. I texted David the evening of the 25th and formally requested a partial refund for our stay. I laid out my calculations in the text, which I thought were fair- I even deducted the pet fee that he felt we owed of $230, which I felt was a reasonable compromise. I followed up July 27 with a second text. I have yet to receive any communication from David around our experience, our refund request, or his threat to take me to small claims court. I spoke with multiple guests while there about their experience and their plans to rebook- some had been going for 35 years- no one I spoke with was returning. To add insult to injury, it appears that the rates for the dated cottages are doubling next season and he is excluding free golf moving forward as a perk to staying. If you are booked in for the 2022 season, I would strongly recommend that you try to find alternative accommodations. At the very least, I would have a clear and concise email with David, outlining your anticipated total cost, your payment date (at checkout, in case anything comes up so you aren't stuck with no recourse like I am), an inclusion for golf if expected (we had to arm wrestle for this also), and a line that you will not be incurring any additional charges beyond what is in the email, so you are covered. Sad that one man can single handedly ruin a well established business with his unprofessional candor and inexperience in the hospitality and tourism industry.

We recently spent a week in two bedroom cabin there. We had booked it back in January22’, so we got it for the price quoted by the old owners. $300 plus tax per night, plus tax (golf included in that price). We did have our dog with us, so we did have pay an extra $20 a night for her. We were quoted $15. But I wasn’t going to squabble over $5. The cabin itself was very clean and air conditioning was wonderful. The cabin had everything we needed. It was, however, quite old and dated, Pine everywhere (walls, cabinets, trim. Deck could use a good pressure wash, as it felt dirty being that it was treated lumber that has been there a longtime with nothing being done to it. Cabin could use a wash on the outside as well (including windows). Cabin was comfortable, just could use some updating. Other cabins are quite close to yours, so not a lot of privacy outside. I kinda had that feeling of being at a campground with a lot of seasonal campers, who think they run the place. We only had two crappy plastic patio chairs on our deck, but noticed that some of the other cabins had these Adirondack chairs, some had five or six of them. We asked at the front desk and they said they didn’t have anymore. I appropriated a couple early the next morning from one of the other cabins. I did see a couple taking one of the lounge chairs for their cabin from the pool one day. Pool was nice, and we did make use of the grass tennis courts We played five rounds at the golf course. The course isn’t one of the well known ones in the province, but was presently surprised with the condition and enjoyed the layout. A lot of crooked things at the resort as well. Lots of crooked floors and windows. Will we go back? Nope. The new owners have now doubled the prices. The cabin we stayed in is now $600 a night, and no golf is included. Golf will be discounted, but you will still have to pay extra for it. Better deals, at newer properties and nicer course on PEI. The regulars, who we talked to, are pissed and many of them won’t be going back. It was a charming little place, and was reasonably priced. The new owners are charging too much money, for something that is not worth it when compared to a lot of other places on the Island.

8 of us from N.S have been going to same resort for last 15 years. We made our reservations for following year before we left.Two months ago it was sold which I did not know about. . I had confirmed reservation with $200 deposit on May 6th for 4 day stay on July11th to 14th.for a certain price .Two days before we leave an email was given to me with new prices from some manager named David Saunders asking for $120 per person increase. Figured we talk about it upon Arrival. After we arrived the manager David Saunders was rude and ignorant saying if we don't want to pay $120 more per person there is the door. I said we should have had more than 2 days notice. We talked about it and decided to pay new price. Six of us had paid and carts were loaded up with clubs and a friend came out and said he was kicked off course. my friend commented to manager that he should have had more than 2 days notice and that sent manager into a rage. He than said 7 of you can play but not Him! NO GOLF FOR YOU !So we all had to refund our money.We decided to go golf at Green Gables than drove home. New Manager was acting like a child throwing a tantrum. Made me wonder how many other reservations he screwed over. If it was bought 2 months ago ,how come only 2 days notice. Amazing how a child can ruin a vacation for 8 people and did nothing for tourism forPEI which had been fantastic up until now.

This review is not for the resort itself as we didn’t stay there. The golf course was a big disappointment. When we checked in I asked about the premium Taylormade clubs and was told they didn’t have any. The way it was said was more of a statement that they haven’t had any for awhile, yet it was on the website. When I looked at the bag, the clubs were filthy and I found that it only had 9 clubs including the putter. D, 4H, 5H, 6, 7, 8, 9, PW and putter. I asked about a SW and was told that the clubs that were in the bag we’re what we got. My wife also only had 9 clubs. Different variety but still only 9 clubs. We still paid full price for the rental. $277 for two including green fees, rentals, power cart and a lrg & sm bucket of balls. For an additional $50 each, we could have played Crowbush or New Glasgow. The course was in decent shape for a course of this caliber, but it was hard to enjoy a round when you don’t have the tools in the bag.
