The dock crew who catch your lines as you back into the slip are fantastic. They gave great directions to our slip and as soon as they could get onto our boat, they secured all the lines. John, the dock master was very helpful in making the reservation especially since we took advantage of the Safe Harbor member benefits. Great "shop" to grab coffee and a breakfast sandwich in the morning. And of course, what a beautiful location.

this a huge property....very large boats...hotel rooms the whole 9 yards....fixed docks make it difficult if your dingy is on your stern....the wifi is bad and the restrooms and showers are few for such a large marina...not all of us have a 60 ft Bertram and we use the showers at the marina....heated pool....the guys that help tie up your boat are the best I have seen which helps since you back down between 2 or 3 pilings to a fixed (no floating docks) dock.

Staff is excellent and knowledgeable, and the pool/restaurant/activities facilities and grounds are top notch. WiFi at the docks was not great, and the bathrooms could use some updating.
The chemical mixture in the pool by the villas was likely off a bit. Both of my kids' eyes had major irritation, which has never happened before.

Dockmaster on point. Dennis was excellent to get us situated at the slip. Definitely would recommend.
by c8d42ncsxlzkuny8w8rk on Sep 09, 2022
This marina is absolutely first class. The facilities are beautiful and John the dockmaster was extremely helpful and accommodating. I highly recommend it.

Wonderful as always. Amazing dock staff. Perfect location and amenities.
by endlessknots on Aug 31, 2022
Greatly overpriced, food quality was horrible and cold, food service quality was less than that of a fast food restaurant. Crumbling docks. Peeling paint on the buildings. Oily scum line in the main pool. The best part of our stay was leaving.

Great staff could not do enough to see to our every need.
by pjohns3 on Aug 20, 2022
The location and employees at the marina are great. This is an awesome nice resort with lots of amenities. We experienced a boat several down from us that was partying until 2:00am. Not fun!
As a new Safe Harbor marina, the should begin to police this behavior much better.

Gurney's Star Island is the best marina anywhere near the Northeast. Great location, excellent staff, top restaurants. Can't think of going anywhere else in Montauk.
by cmcrofts on Aug 16, 2022
After a reasonably pleasant stay, including a good meal at Il Forno, we encountered an unfortunate event wholly created by Guerney's themselves.
While departing the slip, a loose dock line on the piling, apparently there for many months as it was slimy, wrapped around my prop.
Although this was very poor marina management and seamanship, stuff happens, and we as mariners deal with it. How the Dockmaster 'dealt with it' blew me away. While another boater fended my vessel off, keeping me from being pinned between boat and piling, [THANKS SO MUCH LANCE FROM 'OFFICE SPACE'/ MADISON CT] I DOVE WITH MASK/ SNORKEL AND CUT THE LINE AWAY. The Dockmaster came by, shrugged his shoulders and walked away. When I went up to office he was busy answering some critical emails and could just barely muster a 'gee sorry' response.
Apparently for $400/ night Guerney's lets their customers assist each other in correcting their mistakes and hide away in the office hoping to not be found.
Very poor service indeed. We will not be back.

John the Dock master was on point everything was how it should be

This place really is super. The docks are nice, the dockhands are the best we’ve ever come across. The grounds are beautiful, 2 outside pools,1 indoor pool that saved the day for our kids when it rained. They gave us all umbrellas to keep when we headed into town on the FREE shuttle. The front desk also gave our kids each a stuffed animal crab. The restaurants are good with multiple options from fancy to take out. I can’t say enough… I think it’s my new happy place
by speedyturtle on Aug 02, 2022
Gurneys Star Island is the best place to stay. A great property and the staff are first class. John went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our time and handled our arrival like a pro.
by brendaprothro on Jul 30, 2022
It was wonderful as always! They greet you when you arrive and make sure that you are welcome! Thank you John and Gus and the entire staff!!
by pajo7552 on Jul 19, 2022
Extremely well run Marina with all the amenities of Gurneys hotel services etc , we will be back as long as the per foot rate doesn’t go higher Paul

Dock hands we’re very good, loved our slip. Would like the same one next time!!

Great resort, pool, restaurant. Bikes. Near other restaurants and shops, and a shop hop to town. Nice little beach, tennis courts, it has it all.

Nice people. Communicated well and very accommodating
by greengrass on Oct 04, 2021
Great stay. Beautiful facility. Dockhands are terrific. Just a great visit from every perspective.
by camihampton421 on Oct 03, 2021
Always a pleasure staying at Gurney’s Star Island! Guy, David, Dennis, and the rest of the gentleman in the dock office run a great show, are so helpful and accommodating. And fun! The resort amenities are wonderful. We love the cafe and the restaurant, sitting poolside, listening to great music, enjoying the hip ambiance. Gurney’s does all of their project with great style! There is also a Gurney’s Shuttle Bus which will escort you into town and their other Oceanside resort, which has a first-class spa.
And there is a very vibrant fishing scene out on the docks. Everyone is so warm and friendly. We shall return again and again. Thank you, Gurney’s!
by fonsecascott on Sep 09, 2021
Great staff. Very attentive. Great location.
by phaethon on Sep 09, 2021
Excellent as always. Dock staff very attentive, and great ammenities, though I wish their sister facility in the Hamptons still welcomed boaters to use their beach. That was sorely missed this year.
by pressurerelief on Sep 05, 2021
Always a good time. Staff was great. Had dinner at the Club, tuna steak was the best I ever had. Came like a ribeye steak, with the bone AWSOME!

This place is always amazing. Top notch staff, and great service. Looking forward to our next stay.
by oy on Aug 16, 2021
We liked the marina and the dock hands were great. The restaurant was unorganized and I split a bill with someone I was having dinner with and they charged him half and me the entire bill. They said that was normal and I would only be charged half? Never heard that before. Well they took the full amount so now I have to call my CC. Pain
by andresdr1998 on Aug 14, 2021
We stayed there for 8 days, had an amazing experience. Dock hands and the dock master were extremely helpful! Thank you so much John and Guy for all your help we can’t wait to be back again in September!
by calalte on Aug 14, 2021
What a fantastic trip! The Dockhands here are through the roof exceptional, they can have you tied up with 6 lines by the time you’re even shutting your engines down. Both John & Guy from management make you feel super welcome and can answer any questions you may have for the duration of your stay.

Well run Marina but expensive
by donna476 on Jul 28, 2021
My husband and I recently stayed at Gurney’s Star Island Marina for 4 nights. We have been coming to this marina for the past five years. From the time we arrived, until the end when we departed, everything was great! All of the marina staff are top notch, but special mention of Dennis who provides such skill when docking boats, and also of John. We encountered a problem with our boat upon departure, and we felt John went over and above the norm with his assistance to us. This was truly appreciated as he called in Forest from SI Yachts who was quickly able to rectify the issue with our boat.
In addition, we used the shuttle service to downtown several times. Raul is a very helpful driver who seems to go out of his way to help the guests; he demonstrates the high-quality service that Gurneys is known for.
We will be returning again next month, and are looking forward to our stay.
Would definitely recommend this marina to others.
by bernilynn on Jul 19, 2021
Excellent! Just what you would expect from Gurney's. Great facilities, clean premises, lots to do. Boaters are treated as guests at the resort, which makes all the difference. Pricey, but you get what you pay for.
by tejpreet on Jul 15, 2021
Had a great time! Dock hands were extremely helpful! Will definitely come back again soon
by caraceni on Jul 12, 2021
Very attentive staff, use of resort of amenities and ability to use those at the other Gurney's are great. Not advertised is a 20% discount on resort purchases for marina guests. The restaurant would not refund the 20% once I knew and went back.
by mikearena1023 on Jul 05, 2021
Great place! Wonderful staff, I’ll be back!
by ziekman on Jun 15, 2021
The crew at Gurney's doesn't disappoint. They go completely out of their way to do whatever they can to make your visit as enjoyable as possible.

Dockhands were great help. Nice pool are and restaurant, will be back
by torps on Sep 27, 2020
Would be nice to have more than 2 bikes to use but the bmw loaners were a nice treat
ate at Muse.. pretty good
If you want Harvest, make your reservations a week ahead.. place is busy couldn’t get in
by abbeywmcmanus on Sep 20, 2020
Nicest marina we’ve stayed at. Staff was so helpful and kind. Liam was very timely in helping us dock and getting us in easily. John got us all set up with our reservation and helped us get a courtesy car to explore for a couple of hours. Nicest courtesy car ever. Good location with docking ease. Beautiful marina. Great experience. Would recommend.
by rrecker on Sep 07, 2020
Absolutely a beautiful marina! Very well run. It has it all!
by asailboat on Sep 02, 2020
Great marina - we were in main dock and lots of activity! Pool, restaurant were great. Dock master super helpful and accommodating!!
Coming back again soon! Andy
by captianken on Aug 30, 2020
Great Deck Hands, very crowded, both pools were mobbed. Just average food in restaurants and portions were a joke is some cases. They assigned us a 17.5 ft wide slip for a 16.5 wide boat in front of the villas really? The first evening the 50 amp service died and we couldn't find another post that was working anywhere on the dock. It took until 3 pm the following afternoon to get fixed. The whole electrical grid for the villa docks is in need of some serious investment/replacement. When asked the front desk said the shuttle was not running to its sister location in Montauk either. We don't mind paying a bit more to visit a luxury resort, but there was very little real luxury that we could find.
by rhoey497 on Aug 28, 2020
very helpful dock staff
by rsdu6igc633qxe_qdf4q on Aug 10, 2020
Very pricy! $9 dollars a ft plus electric....beautiful views very nice boaters , dog friendly
by britmac on Jul 31, 2020
Recent stay was great. Dock staff were all excellent, facilities were clean. Only issue is the resorts treatment of boaters. Having previously stayed the bike rental was always a big reason why we stay here. This trip we were told that because of people leaving bikes on the docks that they no longer rent to boaters. Paying a premium to dock and not being offered all the amenities is something that will probably have us looking elsewhere for our next trip to Montauk.
by jsmjr1024 on Jul 28, 2020
Well going there many times previously it COVID has certainly taken its toll on this establishment. When you offer a fraction of the amenities you cannot charge $500.+ for 45 ft boat. It is nothing more than a place to slip your boat.
by eabrams65 on Jul 19, 2020
Outstanding! Will come back for a week next summer!
by kr4us1 on Jun 27, 2020
Bathrooms were horrible. Dock had many loose boards with dangerous screws not tight that could cause injury. Pool area was very nice and so was the attendant.
by lisadurren on Jun 22, 2020
Great dock hands- facility is beautiful.
by bigtimber on Jun 16, 2020
Very nice marina.Harrison was a great help on the dock getting all the lines tied off. We will be back..
by tdolan63 on Jun 15, 2020
Dock staff was very attentive and helpful upon arrival and throughout my stay. The marina and resort are beautiful and very well maintained. I look forward to my next return!!
by shelleywparsons on Sep 22, 2019
Helpful staff and excellent amenities. Crosswind and narrow slip made docking a little bit of a challenge. Would definitely stay there again, though.
by rla410 on Sep 10, 2019
We love Gurney’s Start Island. Great marina, nice pool, bar, lunch and dinner. Also very prompt shuttle service around town.
by dbappe on Sep 08, 2019
First class operation. Dock help was superb. We arrived just ahead of Hurricane Dorian’s passing with a stiff E wind. They were able to assist in a most professional way to get us situated securely for the night. Job well done!
by dscoots on Sep 01, 2019
This was our first visit since it became Gurneys. We needed to stay this Labor Day weekend where our adult children could come out by car. We decided to try Gurneys recognizing it is very expensive but understanding we wanted a resort like experience. They delivered on every front from accommodating our early arrival, great slip location that was near the action but far enough away to not keep you up, superb dockhands who knew what they were doing, a great restaurant (Showfish), very well maintained tennis courts and very helpful and service oriented staff. They made sure our 14 month old granddaughter was comfortable in Showfish and even went so far as to gift her a Gurneys whale plush doll. Wonderful family vacation and worth the extra expense.
by howbaraus on Aug 19, 2019
Great place but asked for bocci balls for court, told they were getting them, waited over an hour to find out they didn’t have any. Then saw them for sale in gift shop for $35 a set. Couldn’t they have provided to us or at least let us know. No cable TV at marina??? Can’t give a 5 star resort 5 stars for these oversights. In fairness, they did waive the resort fees for the inconvenience.
by travelgal2 on Aug 18, 2019
Loved the location of our slip. Overall great. The boat next to us BLASTED MUSIC at night. At the takeout shop Where coffee and muffins were served the bagel was stale and the to go salads were embarrassingly scarce looking (maybe 3 pieces of lettuce ($12). Very unappetizing to say the least. that really shouldn’t be at an upscale resort.
by nyplayer26 on Jul 30, 2019
Out overall marina stay was fantastic. Super friendly crowd on the docks and dockhands are easy enough to flag down as they go by or on VHF. Free ice is a plus. Great food onsite at the restaurant or delivered to the boat, and a little ice cream shop (were all great). Town is a short Uber ride with more great restaurants. A bit disappointed on how difficult it is to get a seat by the pool as it is not very large thus has limited seating (will probably utilize the shuttle to the beach next time). Beyond that we loved it. We will definitely be back!
by mgchalos on Jul 25, 2019
Even though they advertise 50 amp/240volt service. Their outlets are 50amp/208 volt service. Not good for running A/C units. Had to use generator. Staff friendly and helpful.
by richardfleischman on Jul 01, 2019
We had a great stay at Gutneys Marina at Montauk. Gurneys has poured a lot of money into the facility and its fantastic! Great stay, great food and environment.
by mystery on Jan 18, 2019
used to visit annually. now $9 per foot plus other fees. LOL
by captmark on Aug 19, 2012
The Montauk Yacht Club is a very nice marina, but beware of what you paying for, at check out you have so-called surcharges that they dont tell you about when making the reservations and check in.
Dont get me wrong the place is awesome, the staff is great and very helpful but if they stayed on top of a few things, like make sure their is hot water in the morning for your shower that would be a little helpful. The shuttle to town was really helpful as far finding places to go and eat. Would I stay somewhere else? Probably not been there twice, we may go back again?
