It was our first trip with two kids(under five) and we chose this hotel. It was great as they have their own private beach and a nice pool with mushroom sprinkler and a kiddie bridge. They also have a kids club with programs going on which we didnt use. The best part is all attractions are nearby and we took... More

We were two families in house No. 7 (4 bedrooms). Good weather made the stay a success. The kids enjoyed the outdoor pool and on the green lawn outside the house. The house was well soundproofed, the neighbors had a barbeque a whole night without the annoyance to us. The house was spacious for four adults and four children. A... More

Before I booked I read all the reviews and knew this would be a great place for me, my husband, and our 2 year old son. It has three pools, two outdoor (kiddie and regular) and an indoor pool for those cool days/nights. We arrived the Sunday before Labor Day and they already went into off season mode, so paying...

Thanks for spending the time to write a review. We agree that the Red Jacket Beach is a great family spot. The pools are very popular with the kids and the view is most popular with the adults.

Very nice location, on the beach. PROs: good for families due to the pools and the beach. We didn't test the food as we only slept there one night. CONs: a bit 1960sh style, under some aspects it means that it would need some renovations. The pools was not the cleanest I have seen. Rooms are essential, a bit oldish,... More

The Red Jacket Beach Resort has the Old Cape Cod Charm that has brought back families year after year. This season has been especially busy due to the beautiful weather and during the off season, many of the updates are done. In the Spring of 2010 updates were done including new bed linens. We pride ourselves on the fact that... More

Since the children were young, we have stayed here. Red Jacket has improved and we still love it. When it's sunny, we enjoy the beach, kayaks and jet skis. When rainy, the indoor pool and hot tub. Clean and comfortable, it is near the action but still tranquil. We always get a room (with kids alcove) facing the sunset and... More
