“An unexpected plesure!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2011

A majestic get away. The dock and water at your foot steps. We kayaked south to see the Orcas the first day. Kayaked north the second only to see Orcas again. The outside grilling area could not have been better. Everything you need to have a five star meal with a five star view.

It was a nice and peaceful place with great surroundings. We stayed at the studio room and it had everything we needed. This is a great place for bigger groups as well. They have bbq's that we could use, picnic tables to enjoy their view and even horseshoe pits. Complimentary canoe is also a great bonus. It is a busy place during daytime since it's also a marina and the staff can be quite busy. The only comment we have is a bit of a musty smell in the room and no restaurants that are that close so if you don't plan to cook in, you have to drive all the way to the city center.

We wanted a nice camping site on the west side of San Juan where we could launch our kayaks and hopefully see some Orca whales...WOW were we pleased!!! Well kept, clean sites with bathroom/showers close by...very friendly/helpful people. I would quickly recommend Snug Harbor Resort to anyone planning to visit San Juan and bike/kayak/camp this beautiful island...

We needed a camping spot to spend time with our grandson. We found Snug Harbor and they had openings...lucky for us...The owner/manager was very friendly as was the woman on the phone who took our reservation. It's right on the bay and the camping area was clean, easy to get to the bathroom-2 of them...very clean, updated and a shower. You can see the bay from almost all of the 10 camping spots. We had firewood left at our fire pit which was great.
We had deer walking by very close to us and heard crickets and frogs during the night...There is a small beach to walk on...just perfect...We will definitely be back...maybe, stay in one of their cabins. Wish we could have spent a couple more days.
