Went to Provincetown for a single night, to get away, see a local show and relax. Carpe Diem was the perfect spot. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the room we stayed in completely luxurious. The spa is the big reason to go- sauna, hot tub (that isn't over charged with chlorine, much appreciated), and steam room are simply... More

My husband and I spent two nights at Carpe Diem for a winter getaway over the MLK Jr holiday weekend. It was our first time at this guest house. The new owners are great and friendly. Complimentary Port & Sherry in the sitting room was a nice touch. The room was very comfortable and the steam room and sauna were... More

Thank you for the review, and we are glad you enjoyed your stay! The room you were in is a bit awkward to access the spa from, as it has an entirely separate entrance from the rest of the guesthouse. Many guests appreciate that privacy. However, should you choose to stay with us in the future make sure you ask... More

Rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. My room was a bit on the small side, but I really enjoyed my stay. Staff is super friendly and service was very good. The bed was the star though. What a good nights sleep.

Our Oscar Wilde room was lovely with gorgeous furnishings and a glowing fireplace! The onsite spa was amazing with an open-air hot tub, an awesome Turkish steam room and great massage therapists! The staff were all so personable and welcoming and the utmost professionals. The breakfast was delicious and the port available 24-7 was a great perk not to mention... More

We are return visitors to Carpe Diem - and for very good reason. Everything about it is lovely: the rooms, the ambiance, the owners. They are gracious and welcoming. They will also do everything they can to make your visit extra-special. They have found that perfect balance between being attentive and relaxed. We HIGHLY recommend this little piece of heaven...

What a wonderful experience! Great host (yay Eddie) charming upscale rooms with fireplaces, all amenities, modern fixtures and electronics, wine and coffee 24 hours, perfect location, full breakfast and a spa! The property is obviously looked after with attention to detail and I will return in the spring!

We stayed at this beautiful place last May for the long weekend, so my feedback is well overdue....oh well life's distractions...First thing is first, this hotel is conveniently located just a few blocks away from the dock and a block away from the ocean - far enough to ensure quieter nights and close enough for a walk. Second, I loved... More

I visited the Carpe Diem during Holly Folly weekend with my sister and friends. For years, I have had the Carpe Diem on my Trip Advisor "saved" list. I'm not sure I can appropriately put into words how much we loved staying here. From the warm and wonderful welcome and tour given by their manager, Eddy (he decorated both Christmas... More

We stayed here at the last minute on a cool November weekend. It was my first time staying in Provincetown off season so we wanted to get a place with amenities and that we'd be comfortable spending time inside. What a great choice! The new owners and the staff were so welcoming. The Asian theme atmosphere was so serene. The... More

We were lucky to be able to spend a full week here 2 years ago. This past summer we were able to only break away for one night but we were welcomed again like we were one of the family. With the evening wine and cheese and the WONDERFUL breakfast in the morning we really didn't need to leave but... More
