My husband and I have stayed at the Blue Water for the past 7 years. As a couple we stayed in a regular hotel room both ocean front and garden view. Rooms are a good size and nicely updated. The private beach is just steps away and both the indoor and outdoor pool are well maintained. Once we welcomed our... More

We chose to visit this property after the "rush" of high season for a quick getaway. The resort was really empty which was kind of nice. The pool and Jacuzzi were so relaxing and the beach walks were well enjoyed. They have great outdoor chairs with fantastic views and a very nice outdoor pool as well. We opted to have... More

Couldnt find a much nicer hotel than this. The staff was extraordinary. The breakfast was very good and reasonable. A little disappointed in the dinner, but with all the restaurants in the area there are plenty to go to. Breakfast was the most important to me. In and out and off for the day nice and early.

My family and I returned to the Blue Water Resort for the second time this summer. Our stay was superb. From the initial check-in to the final check-out, the staff and the accommodations were superb. Our room, 102, had a wonderful ocean view from our own private deck. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with many flowering plants that are well... More

It's listed on Trip Advisor as Blue Water on the Ocean, but in reality [on hotels.com and at the motel itself], the motel is dubbed Red Jacket Blue Water Resort. Like many "resorts" in Cape Cod and the Islands, this "resort" is really a 2 star motel. The rooms are quite dingy and old... mildew in the shower, and our... More

Second time. If you're looking for a modern spa experience, Blue Water is not for you. If you're looking for a place on the water where your kids can run around like you used to on vacation-this place is for you. Outdoor movie nights, music on the beach. Heated in/out door pools. An amazing relaxed atmosphere and excellent staff-each one... More

Let's get this part out of the way. Our number one priority for this trip was a dog friendly hotel, which it is. The downside is that it is a dog friendly hotel. Our carpeting had multiple stains that attracted our dog like a magnet -- we promptly notified management and they came in and immediately steam-cleaned the rug to... More

Leaving today after spending two nights. We arrived at the hotel early on Tuesday morning. Front desk staff very friendly and told us we could go to the beach, pool etc until our room was ready. They called my cell phone 2 hours later to say our room was ready. This was before 11:00 am. Service was wonderful from housekeeping,... More

Me, my (adult) daughter and her boyfriend spent a week at the Blue Water. Our experience was just okay.

First, this facility is dog-friendly, which is what attracted us to it in the first place (though we have stayed at other Red Jacket resorts before and been happy with our accommodations) and I have to say we saw only one other dog.
