We were quests of an owner that exchanged points for a week. The beds were horribly uncomfortable and when asked to change it out they said they didn't have any replacements. After a disagreement the previous owner said that was unexceptable and they changed it for another uncomfortable one. The rooms are very dated, not sure what they do with... More

We showed up and instantly I had the urge to scrub this entire place. Cobwebs in the corners, dust, zero character, cracked floor tiles, and our refrigerator did not work. Then a few days in I found cockroaches. Yuck! Surprisingly there are nice pots and pans, and you can cook in the tiny kitchen with the gas stove. But the... More

My folks bought a timeshare here more than 20 years ago. It was a huge mistake that they've been trying to sell for over a decade. It's less like a resort and more like staying at a friend's dirty, faded old house with no wifi. The decor is stale, staying the same for 10 years or more at a time.... More

Convenient to road cycling routes and also to the Shining Sea Bikeway. To get to the Bikeway, go through Goodwill Park to the Bikeway entrance on Palmer Ave (Rte 28). If you bike to nearby Wood Neck Beach, you can get in without the requisite Falmouth resident pass. Briarwood has some serious cleaning and maintenance issues. And Ian, the manager,... More

Conveniently located near all the best spots in Falmouth and Woods Hole. From this location we took a drive to Hyannis and fast ferry to Nantucket. And, a day trip into Boston for a Red Sox game. The unit we stayed in was recently remodeled and reasonably priced. The resort staff was very friendly and helpful as well.

We arrived last week for our yearly visit, relieved to find much cleaner conditions than years past. However, our relief was short lived as the beds in our unit were horribly hard and we woke up very sore every morning. We requested a foam topper that was delivered to our unit by a man who neither knocked or used the... More

We were told this resort was sooo different than it turned out to be. Paint peeling, crummy lighting, NO WIFI!, Floors filthy, the throw rug in the living room is curved up and we finally pulled it up and put it in the corner before someone broke their neck. Hair in the kitchen sink, back gate broken, couch uncomfortable -... More

The best thing is the location. Easy, short drives to beaches and shopping. Inconvenient with no wifi in units; no evening access to phone lines. Could be such a great resort with attention to some upgrading in units and customer service details. Not the Ritz, but still good spot.

I read the reviews before I left so I knew what I was getting into. I have been a timeshare owner for 27 years , stayed in condos world wide, this is the poorest quality I have stayed in. Being optimistic I thought it would be okay. But it was not. The things that bothered me most was the carpet... More
