My wife and I had heard that the Resort was at one time excellent, but that its previous corporate owner had let it run down to the point that it went bankrupt in 2008. We had read some reviews from the 2008 to 2012 new owner transition period and they were mixed reviews for both the accommodations and the food....

Rosario's is a lovely spot on Orcas Island complete with a small dock for catching whale watching excursions. We stayed in the harbor suites (2nd time here in 2 years). Nice views of water and fairly quiet (if ones' neighbors don't bring loud children). Fortunately, the few babies that cried were quickly scooped up and silenced by their parents). We...

Just spent three nights at Rosario Resort. This place exceeded our expectations. We stayed in a Bayview room facing the water. The view was gorgeous. Watching the seaplanes take off and land in the morning while sitting on our deck with coffee was delightful. In the evening, listening to the gentle waves lap against the shore from our comfortable bed...

I found the best little marina on the orcas island. you have to see the mansion and the Bald eagle who is perched in the trees all day. This is amazing to eat, drink and enjoy the pool. I loved it here.

Don't mind paying a premium for something special but we reserved this place a month ago at 300+, now offering a $160 special.the rooms which are far from the main building and are barely average and dated, The grounds are a mess, cracked sidewalks, crumbling walls and chipped paint,. On the bright side, the...

Dear elizmccabe, I appreciate your comments and am sorry to hear that you are a disappointed guest. I would certainly love to talk with you, but your room is not registered under your name. I would love to have you call me at ext. 300. Our room rates only change from season to season - we have not discounted our...

The views are beautiful and it is conveniently located close to east sound and Moran State Park. The property, though, has seen better days. Our room was dated and were particularly unhappy that there was no place to sit in the room but the bed, the patio chairs were good looking but not very comfortable, and the building is very...

My family discovered this place last summer & couldn't wait to bring more family members in on the fun this summer. We just completed our second visit and it was just as fantastic as we'd remembered it to be. We rented a couple of the largest suites they have--each with a basic kitchen, dining area & living room with Murphy...

Rosario is in a gorgeous location. The views are breathtaking. The mansion is grand and interesting. The hotel rooms are quite a distance away and up a steep hill. The rooms are very dated. No air conditioning, sitting chairs or cell service. It is quite noisy if your neighbors are out on their balcony talking late into the night.

On our recent visit to the San Jusn Islands, WA we were fortunate to visit Orca Island. What seemed like a surprisingly long windy ride from the ferry - we were so pleasantly surprised upon arriving to our 'home' - at least for the next 4 days - The Rorsario Resort & Spa, One can sense a calming stillness as...

We planned to stay on our boat in the marina and on our way to Rosario we had engine issues. We called and told Terry, the HarborMaster, about our situation and that we were planning to sail close with our visitors from NYC and asked Terry if he would tow us in from just outside the marina. No problema. We...
