We only spent one night here and all I can saw is Wow. The views are breathtaking. The service is top notch. The town was close by but we were more than happy to savor every minute of our view right where we were. I would love to come back and stay for a longer period of time, but it... More

The grounds are kept meticulously. The location on the beach cannot be beat. The service is impeccable. And the proximity to town is fantastic. My husband and I have traveled to some of the most luxurious locations in the country and abroad too. This is one we will come back to for sure. We are considering returning next August for... More

As many reviewers wrote, the location of this hotel is lovely... right on a beautiful wide beach. The location is also convenient to town (only a mile away.) The staff is generally helpful. Now the cons .. The price for our 2 bd, 2 bath beachhouse was >$2k/night. At that level, everything should be impeccable and perfect. We definitely did... More

As the reviewer correctly points out, they did stay in one of our brand new Beach House Residences. The hot water system was checked out by our general manager and he could not find any problems, Except for this incident, it has worked perfectly. Once made aware of the problem with the refrigerator, we offered to refrigerate any food items... More

Ok, prepare yourself. This place is not inexpensive, or even moderately priced. No two ways about it, it is expensive. But SO worth it. The view is amazing. The service is impeccable. I once had a minor health issue that needed a doctor. I asked at the desk if there was a drop in clinic on the island. There is... More

Great to hear from you! Believe me when I say that I look forward to each guest's visit as much as they do, and it's wonderful to know that our service, rooms, and scenery make every trip worthwhile (as for the kids, the beach is always more than enough to keep them satisfied).

Cliffside's location is unique and lovely: the rooms are steps from one of Nantucket's most desirable North shore beaches. And it's obvious that a lot of care has gone into the design and maintenance of the property. The owner lives on the premises and apparently runs a tight ship. It's quite something to witness the military like precision in which... More

Great to hear from you again! It's very nice to know that our service and beachside scenery made for a memorable trip. While there isn't much we can do about the closer quarters, I assure you we do everything we're able to protect our guests' peace and privacy (I'd love to hear any suggestions for improvements in this regard, too)....

Just returned from a 3-day getaway to the Cliffside to celebrate a special occasion. First time to Nantucket but definitely not our last. Cliffside was better than expected. Pricey but well worth it - highly recommend. The location, service (esp. front desk) and attention to detail is all top notch. If you want to be on the beach, look no... More

We always choose this hotel for our annual, "honeymoon" trip (25 years and counting). And with so many hotels to choose from, in so many great places in the world, it can be a difficult decision. But, Cliffside never disappoints. This year our Gold Coast apartment was transformed into a fabulous one-bedroom Beach House residence complete with comfy bedroom, marble... More

Great welcome by the staff when we arrived and the beach house we stayed in was fantastic and right on the stunning beach. We were lucky and the weather was amazing so we ended up spending more time on the beach than we had planned to but it's so perfect it seemed silly not to. My one criticism would be... More

We have stayed here for years and enjoy the beach front room. Our room was redone for this year and the changes are wonderful. The main drawback is that cell phone use is sporadic. You could all bars and then the wind blows and your call is dropped.

We've been coming to Nantucket for our "end of the summer" vacation for over 20 years. We have stayed in most of the high-end places on the island and I have say that the Cliffside Beach Club is tops on the list. It's a unique property that sits on a pristine beach and the beachfront rooms are only about 100... More
