“Pleasant enough resort but nothing special!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

We stayed at Britterige Villas for 3 nights in July. The "Villas" are actually condos in a block so noise from other guests is a bit of a problem. The rooms were clean and functional but very dated. A nice/convenient feature was the washer/dryer available in each room.

Although each condo sleeps 4 we decided to book two 2 Villas as travelling with 2 teenage girls we prefer 2 bathrooms. The 2 bedroom villas promoted on the website proved impossible to book and would have been more expensive!! As it was, the condos also proved to be VERY expensive and I would not class as good value! Once resort fees local tax, state tax and an additional unspecified $50 per night was added to each room rate, the cost was $120 per room per night more than the advertised rate. Once I queeried the additional $50 per night, they agreed to refund this, however I still find $2660 (£1662) for a 3 night stay, accommodation only in a mediocre resort to be quite pricey.

The facilities at the resort are very good and the Arbor pool fun for families with the convenience of having poolside servers to bring drinks and refreshments. Do Not hire bikes from the onsiite bike rental. They are expensive and the equipment is dated. A quick car journey or 10 minute walk will get you to Brewster Bike rentals on Underpass Road where they have much cheaper and better quality bikes.

We used both the Lynx restaurant and Bayzo's Pub and found the food and drink of a high quality and reasonable value.

The staff at Ocean Edge are great!! From the front desk staff, restaurant and pool servers and the housekeeping staff, they are all very friendly and helpful.

Friends of ours visiting Cape Cod at the same time stayed in a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom private beach front cottage for 1 week for a similar price. With hindsight I wish we had done the same as even though we only had a 3 day stay, paying for a week and leaving early would still have been the same price.

Room Tip: Some of the Condos are in the basement and have no views and are very dark.

We stayed at the villages 5 nights in the arbor area. The structure is very big, you will have to drive around and there are 2 major areas where you will find pools and pool bar. The whole villages is between a big golf club, so you are surrounded by 11 holes. Our unit was pretty clean with fully equipped kitchen and w/d. The bed was not too comfortable. The Linx restaurant is very good and whole staff is gentle and extremely professional.
The defects of this resort is the pools, they are pretty small and for the number of guest hey have they are very limiting. After noon they become crowded with kids playing and screaming (as all the kids do). That's unfortunate because they really have ton of space and they could build more maybe for over 21 as well.
Pretty good stay I would recommend for quality and location. Less for relaxing at poolside. It's a pity with all the space and green they have!

BryanWebb, General Manager at The Villages at Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club, responded to this review, July 27, 2014
Thanks for taking the time to write this review. We were happy to read you were overall pleased with the accommodations, the staff, and The Linx.

I’m sorry you found the pools to be too busy. We do have five pools on property as well as access to the surrounding Brewster beaches and ponds. We also offer adults only swim times at the Fletcher Pool from 7A-10A daily. We typically do not have problems with overcrowding. We appreciate you weighing in however, and will certainly consider the possibility of a pool for adults in our future planning. Thank you again for submitting your comments.

Sincerely,
Bryan Webb
Resort Manager

Great place. Sean Sullivan was the man. He made sure we had everything we needed. Small tip - order the blue cheese buffalo chicken pizza. It provided us with the strength we needed to really enjoy our trip.

Was here for a recent weekend getaway with my wife. We had a wonderful time, the accommodations were impeccable and the beach was ready for some summer enjoyment. The real jewel of this resort is the property itself and some of the exemplary staff. The buildings are all beautiful and immaculate and the same goes for our villa - we should know, we have vacationed here for many years. The real reason for this review was our interaction with one of the managers at the resort, Sean Sullivan. Sean really went out of his way to make some great recommendations for us as we were just passing by. He took some time out of (I'm sure) his busy day to steer us to a really great afternoon. We really appreciate his help and expertise and looking forward to a return trip soon.

My wife and our 2 sons spent 5 nights here. We travelled here with family friends from Boston, wanting to have a fun Cape visit. The Villages at Ocean Edge worked. The facilities were very good, especially the tennis and golf. Fun pool area at the Shark Bah. Staff were very pleasant and friendly.

We both had very nicely appointed one bedroom units. We requested (and received) adjoining units which was great.

We ate at the following Ocean Edge restaurants:
Linx was very convenient but the food was just okay.
Ocean Terrace has a great ambience, the food is very creative, maybe a bit too much but very good.
The best place was Bayzo's Pub. Very nice atmosphere and the menu was great for kids.The manager Steve was fantastic, as was the hostess Alex. Thank you Bayzo's.

Overall we had a nice time at the Villages.

My one area of complaint is you must pay for your entire stay 7 days in advance. As it turned out, our Boston friends had to leave one day early. Upon arrival, they informed the front desk that they would only be staying for 4 nights and not 5. The front desk person said we needed to talk to reservations. The reservations agent informed them of their 7 day policy and said that they could not do anything for them.

I felt quite bad for my friends, As I was the organizer of our little trip, I asked to speak to a manager (Sean) who said this is a very strict resort policy. Sean said he would contact reservations and copy me on an email, but not to expect anything. He confirmed my email address, but I never did receive an email from him or reservations.

I realize that many places on the Cape have this "must pay first" policy, but if you are trying to be a "high end resort" I believe you need to be a bit flexible on these things. No refund, no credit, no offer for a future visit. Disappointing.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the golf course.

We had a lovely time recently at the Ocean Edge. We stayed in Arbor Village which I think was the most convenient as we were within walking distance of the pool, the Lynx Tavern and the golf club. A special mention and thank you to Adam on the front desk, Abi from Dublin, Sophia Bulgaria, Manager Brian and Bill who helped with our bags.

You all made our stay that much more personable. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The Ocean Edge Resort is well maintained, well staffed and offers numerous pools, restaurants/bars and other amenities. There is plenty to do for both adults and children, especially if there is bad weather. I strongly recommend this resort. It makes you feel like you are on a vacation.
