La Sammana Resort
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Brigantine
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 October 2014

Stayed here for four nights in a one bedroom apartment between trips and it was great. The hotel is conveniently located about 4 miles from the board walk in Atlantic City. Away from the maddening crowd but easy walking distance to a nearby clean and uncrowded beach. Restaurants nearby are scarce but more than adequate. Food shopping is limited but sufficient. It was a great stay for a little down time. Casinos are a short drive or free shuttle away. Weather in September was too cool to swim and the pool on the roof top was small but well maintained, clean and enough for us. The views from the roof were worth the trip. The apartment, kitchen and living room were clean and perfectly appointed. I am sure that we will be back. Two thumbs up! Nice job by housekeeping and entire hotel staff!

Room Tip: The front of the hotel faces a quiet police / fire station. If noise is an issue ask for a rear fac...

I have never been to Brigantine before. It's a lovely beach town.I stayed at Fantasea with time share points.The hotel was clean and well run. The room was clean and stocked with necessities.It is two blocks from a beautiful beach.There is a tiny rooftop pool, basically to sit in and cool off, but the rooftop space offered lovely views.I would stay again.

Myself and 5 other women had a girls weekend in Atlantic City on Friday, September 12, 2014. I used points from my Time Share to stay here and it was the best points I have used all year. I was upgraded from two studios to a two bedroom suite which was wonderful. Nice and spacious, jacuzzi and Sauna in the Master Bedroom. Phyliss, the property manager, was great and made sure that our girls weekend was top notch. Nice restaurants, convenient store and boutique within walking distance. Our taxi driver Phil and Marty were fantastic. We all loved it and will definately go back.

Room Tip: Have some singles, tips were very appreciated.

This resort is located in close proximity to AC and is right by the beach. I like it because it has a town feel to it and a short ride away is the hustle and bustle of AC. They offer a free shuttle to 2 AC casinos, which is a plus. The rooms are decent..there is a small gym and pool above the hotel. It's close to restaurants and the beach is a short walk. Good for a weekend getaway if you want to relax. My only complaint is the AC/heat units are loud.

Room Tip: I suggest you call a week in advance to put in your room request..Especially if you would like a bal...

Four of us stayed at La Sammana Resort over the Labor Day holiday and had a wonderful experience, though there were some curiosities.

The hotel is part of the RCI time share group, and "La Sammana" means "the week" in Spanish (just a bit of trivia for those who might care), but also indicative that if you're not staying the full week you will get charged an extra fee. In our case it was $55.

It's a good thing the hotel has its name in bright red letters at the top because you just might drive by thinking it was an office building. Not particularly distinctive, though it's one of the tallest buildings in Brigantine.

Check-in was a breeze, and there were a few fees to be paid: the non-refundable $55 charge mentioned above and a $100 deposit. The desk staff were courteous, and the doorman asked if we wanted help with our bags, which we declined. Check-in is also at 4 pm but we arrived several hours early, and while our 4th floor room wasn't yet available they did have one on the 2d floor that was and allowed us to check in.

The rooms were a pleasant surprise, being clean, fairly spacious, and nicely appointed in general. We did find the sleeper sofa mattress a bit thin and requested a pad (who knew they were called an "egg crate?"). They didn't have one available the first night, but did find one for us on the second day. Also there were seemingly only 2 bath-sized towels in the room, but the cleaning staff, which always seemed to be present in the hallways at all hours of the day, quickly gave us a big supply of towels.

I should note here the staff was always super pleasant, asking how our day was going, whether we were having fun, etc. Anytime we asked for something, they were always willing to respond. In fact, they were actually so omnipresent and chatty we found ourselves running to the elevator just to avoid them at times. But that's a good thing. Far better than surly help.

One of the curiosities we found was there was no toaster in the rooms. Apparently guests were setting off the smoke alarms too often by burning toast so they removed them all. The only toasters are near the lobby by the complimentary coffee station that's open from 7 am to 10 am.

Our remote for the TV in the bedroom also didn't work, but that was merely a case of dead batteries and a call to the front desk got us new ones that solved the problem. We also found that one of the outlets nearest the bed was controlled by the light switch by the door. As it was the only thing the switch controlled it seemed odd to have it turn off the outlet.

Our feeling after being in the room for just a short time though was that the room hadn't been rented out in a while. From various small missing items (nothing important and nothing I can recall at the moment) and the TV control not working, it seemed like it had been empty.

La Sammana has a rooftop pool, which offers excellent views of Brigantine and the surrounding area, but it is very small about the size some extra large hot tubs I've been in. Still it's relaxing and provided a good alternative when we didn't want to walk the 1-1/2 blocks to the beach.

Its proximity to the beach and to Atlantic City make the hotel a good choice. We found there was a real lack of choice in dining options in the town, particularly after Labor Day when it seemed the community gave a collective sigh of relief that all the tourists were leaving ("shoobies," as they call them; stems from way back in the day when tourists would arrive by train carrying their lunches in shoeboxes).

There was an Italian restaurant right next door, that we never made it to (I'm on a restricted diet so it made some of our dining choices for us), and a surprising lack of seafood places. We weren't impressed with The Pirate's Den (see my review of that place) and Cellar32 (another reviewed restaurant) had probably the best all around fare though service could be slow. One night we actually drove around for about 30-45 minutes, driving all the way to AC before coming back (you don't really want to stray too far from the boardwalk in Atlantic City at night).

The one day we planned to go to Laguna Beach Grill it was closed, otherwise that looked like it might have been a good choice with its beachside location.

We definitely loved Brigantine and found it a nice quiet community, even for the Labor Day holiday. My wife and I took a peaceful evening stroll around the town one night, walking along the bay and saw there are a lot of new houses going up which means a lot of people must be liking it too.

I think one beach is called Rum Point and its at the tip of the town just as you enter in from A.C. and there you can actually drive your 4x4 on the beach and park there. However, the fee for doing so is several hundred dollars making it an option only for those living year round there or staying the summer. But it is fun, curious feature and on Labor Day it was packed.

In short, I could easily recommend staying at La Sammana again.

Room Tip: Beach side rooms have a balcony
