Ventajas: We love Rosario Resort, especially the Moran Mansion! We love the history of the building and strongly recommend the Saturday afternoon music and history "lesson" in the Music Room upstairs! The room rates are especially good in the winter time (compared to high season in the summer). The staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful for any needs. It was great to be there in the off-season and experience the Mansion decorated for Christmas.
Ventajas: Unbelievable views!
Ventajas: I recall the food from prior visits as being good, but the new Exec Chef, Raymond Southern, has taken it to a whole new level. The food was excellent, and the staff friendly and helpful. The view from my room was incredible, and the off season rates made it very affordable. The comments about the front desk not being friendly are puzzling to me - they (and all the other staff) were very warm, all the more impressive as they had given up Christmas Eve and Day to show a nice time to guests.
Desventajas: The soundproofing in my room left a little to be desired - I could clearly hear the conversations of my next door neighbors. But if you're hanging out in your room on Orcas Island, you're doing it wrong.
Ventajas: Very accommodating. From checking in whenever your ferry arrives, to dietary requests the owners and staff are very gracious service. Quiet, restful and beautiful setting is perfect for an escape from the every day business. Highly encourage and recommend a visit. We'd love to go back again.
