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

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

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

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

Best place to stay on the island. The definition of beachy elegance. The beach is your living room. The entire staff is excellent. An easy walk into town. The Galley is next door, which is one of the best restaurants on he island (and great to have a happy hour drink). The sunsets on the beach are awesome
