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

Great place to stay and the staff was very accommodating - restaurant suggestions, etc. For people with children it is great, with all kinds of activities for the kids including a time when they can be left with the staff for games, etc. Day I left Sponge Bob was going to visit. I would ask for an upstairs room next... More

Thanks for the great review! It is definately a family resort and there are plenty of things for the kids to do. The Kids Club was popular the summer and the weather was most cooperative. Sponge Bob and Crabby Patty were a hit too.We look forward to seeing you next summer! More

We are not regulars at the Cape. This was our second trip in 3-4 years, and we stayed at Red Jacket (RJ) for first time on friend’s recommendation.

We have two small children, both under 4, and decided to stay here after being referred by many people. This is the perfect beach getaway vacation for any family with kids and the resort is geared towards them! Every day there were activities for kids of all ages - tattoos, kite making, hermit crab races, magician, parasailing, swimming lessons -... More

We recently travelled to the Red Jacket with our 3 children. This place is way overpriced, and they charged us a "RESORT FEE" which we were not told about when we checked out. When you pay $450 a night for a hotel room, you figure you would not have a resort fee and tax on top of that. This is... More

The Resort fee covers the many summer activities, beach towels, chairs and umbrellas. The Kid's Club being one of these activities. The rooms and bedding were updated in the Spring of 2010. The Green Harbor one of our sister resorts is indeed a beautiful resort and like our other resorts it is Family friendly. Thank you for your review and... More

A friend and I went for a medical conference, well she went to the conference and I went to the beach. Everything about the resort was amazing! Chad the beach attendant was always available with a chair or umbrella. Barbie, my breakfast server, was friendly and efficient. Our room was comfortable and always kept clean by housekeeping.

We stayed for 2 nights and the beds were very uncomfortable. I don't think that they have ever replaced the mattress or boxspring since they opened! Other than 2 uncomfortable nights of sleep with lower back pain, the view of the ocean from our room was nice. The hotel staff was good as well. So before paying $400 and up... More

They say first impressions go along way they definitely made one starting out with bloody sheets. They came and changed the sheets right away but then the comforter was a mess as well.

We recently stayed 5 days at this resort. Room was very clean. We stayed on riverview side, which was very relaxing since it is away from the pool area. This was my 3rd visit in recent years, but may be the last. This is a great place for people with small children. The entire complex is focused on kid activities.... More

Thank you for your comments As I said in the review before this one... I am sorry you didn't realize we are a family oriented resort. We do try to express that with our "Kids Club" activity printings and our brochures, which feature children. We do monitor our pools. We do not allow "cannon balling". So this is something we...
