We just got back from our 'Cape Escape' and we were very pleased with our choice of hotel for this vacation. We stayed five nights at Horizon Beach Resort and would love to go back there soon. Biggest pros: Clean room with a great kitchen (great for keeping snacks and cold drinks) - great water pressure for showers - quiet area for the most part - private balcony (great to hang wet beach clothing) - great air conditioner (consistent noise , not loud but soothing, to block out outside noises - table and chairs in room for easy dining and computer use - great tv viewing - plenty of storage drawers for personal belongings - absolutely gorgeous view of the ocean - shuttle stop right outside in front of hotel ($2.00 each way to P-town) absolutely the best way to get around. No parking fees, convenient, comes every half hour, clean shuttle, you can't beat the shuttle (We only had a $20.00 bill and they don't make change, BUT, they do give you a shuttle credit ticket with the remainder of the change and we were able to travel on that for the rest of the week) - Restaurant within walking distance that serves a quality breakfast and lunch at a great price - Easy access to the pool and beach area.
Understand that I have NO gripes about this hotel - It's an excellent place to stay but it is only fair if I put the cons out there so you can make an informed decision. Biggest Cons: Typical lightweight, on the rough side, towels for bathing. - Hotel is a little dated but kept up very well - Bedspread, which appeared clean, is outdated and should be replaced with a simple top sheet and blanket sandwich followed by a runner on the foot of the bed (and add a bedskirt) - If you're staying in the upper building you have to walk up a short moderate hill to access your room through the entrance in the back.- Seaweed on beach, but plenty of clean sand to lay your blankets and chairs.
In my opinion, these were not deal-breaker cons. You can't beat the stay at this hotel for the money. Just knowing ahead of time what the cons are you won't stress on the small stuff once you get there and you'll have a great vacation. Very happy customer.
