I've never visited a hotel/resort with a group of employees as great as the "crew" at the Boat slip. Every single crew member was engaged to make sure our visit was exceptional. The location is in the middle of all the best places for food, drink, and shopping. The morning breakfast was fresh and enjoyable. We will be staying here... More

Recently stayed here with a large group. The hotel was very comfortable: the rooms were well maintained, the beds and pillows were good, and we were able to store our luggage easily in the rooms. The complementary breakfast was extremely convenient, plus there were mini fridges in the rooms which let us store snacks and drinks. We were also extremely... More

I had been to the Boatslip many times for Tea Dance, and have always wanted to stay there. This visit, we paid the $350+ per night rate, and I was a bit disappointed. We were supposed to have a room with a pool view, and a deck. The deck was so small, two of us really couldn't sit out there.... More

The rooms are well situated. The theme of a small fishing community was tastfully and well established through the use of décor and interior design in the room units. Breakfast was satisfactory; unfourtunalty only with plastic cutlery which I hate. The bar inside the hotel is fantastic Mackenzie is a super friendly personable bar keeper, does great drinks and funny.... More

Entry to Tea Dance for the week makes up for the value of the rooms. Pool facing rooms get an excellent view of the bay and can watch Tea Dance from your balcony. Breakfast was limited but the pastries were delicious. The staff at Boatslip were extremely friendly and courteous to us (Especially Bill and Glenn). We arrived before our... More

Don't miss the Tea Dance when visiting. Lots of fun to be had and great people to meet. I highly recommend joining the fun the first day you're in PTown and try to make some new friends for the rest of the week! Made our trip more fun. Drinks are good and not too expensive.

We were in P-Town for the week before Carnival and had a blast. We made it to T-Dance at the Boatslip most of the days were were there. To call it a "resort" is a bit misleading...but still worth the fun during T-Dance. Service can be a challenge, as can the drink "pours". Terrific people watching.

We did not stay at The Boatslip. We visited Ptown during Women's Splash and Family week so we didn't expect big crowds for legendary Tea Dance. The deck is large and the view/atmosphere is excellent! We went 3 times. Once the crowd was decent and fun. Another visit it was dead, the 3rd visit there was a small crowd. The... More
