Stayed for 2 nights in the main building in the most quaint attic-style room on the third floor, complete with a balcony/seating area that overlooked the water. Turndown service each night was a nice touch, the room decor was impeccable, and the room had a very comfortable bed. Given the price point of the resort you would expect attentive service... More

My husband and I spent this past weekend at this resort and we're not happy. I will say the room we had was 1400 dollars a night and was very nice. I will also say that the workers from the valet to the bartenders were wonderful. The problem is that for 1400 dollars a day I would have thought we... More

Thanks primarily to my job, I've had the luxury of staying in many 5 star hotels (7 stars in fact too) all over the world and I can honestly say that CBI ranks right up there at the top. We had a spa suite, which was heavenly. The staff are exceptionally professional, grounds are beautiful and I really can't fault... More

We did not stay here but utilized the tennis facility and the the spa. Tennis was great; both Tucker and Connor were terrific. I would say most, if not all, of the people taking the tennis drill classes were not guests of the hotel. Many were Bostonians spending the summer on the Cape at their own homes or those renting...

We stayed in a room in the Cape Rose beach front cottage and were delighted with the ocean view. All the right touches were present in the room - free wi-fi, complimentary water, fridge for personal use, robes, slippers, Nespresso machine, L'Occitane toiletries. I wasn't keen on the shutters closing all the light from the room (we did manage to... More

It has been a long time since I have journeyed to a destination that has taken my breath away - and I travel a lot! We arrived to celebrate my 60th birthday and not for even a moment were we disappointed. The rooms are charming, the staff attentive, the food exquisite and the view, romantic. We had two of our...

When we visualized our trip to Cape Cod, we knew that at least one trip on a REAL sailboat was a must. The Chatham Bars Inn had a beautiful sailboat! Our pilot or sailor unsure of his title was terrific. He was a teacher during the school year, and a sailor during the summer. We purchased the one hour trip... More

Being in the middle of my visit, I only hope the rest of the week is as wonderful as the first half. This is one of the top resorts I have ever visited. Normally I don't notice the staff but everywhere you go they are being helpful. Water, drinks and beach towels from nice young staff. Brought me coffee as... More

We popped in for a drink and waited for 25 minutes to be served - it was not busy plenty of staff no leadership : Eventually the coffee arrived Luke warm another 15 minutes and a replacement arrived :lovely setting and I'm sure with a bit more effort the service could be improved and then maybe 4 stars :

Dear Tommytandoor: Allow me to express my sincere apologies for the poor experience noted in one of our dining venues at Chatham Bars Inn. The wait for drink service far exceeds the timing in terms of appropriate steps of service, on a basic level. Please rest assured that your concerns have been addressed with our team.

Let me first say that the property is beautiful, clean, and well kept. Let me also say that for $800 per night (in season), it should be. The staff mean well, but they're incredibly disorganized and it shows. Upon check-in, my husband and I were told we were being upgraded from an oceanfront room, to a suite. We were shown... More
