“Amazing family-friendly holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We went for a wedding from the UK and one of our friends had a time share through RCI so he was able to do a exchange. It was the best option ever. Completely family oriented and this was important as we travelled with a 14 month old baby. Fantastic facilities and location. Very friendly staff. We absolutely loved it!!!!!

We stayed here for a long weekend. The facilities were excellent, clean, up to date. Great indoor swimming pool, on site restaurant. Being mid Cape, access to National Seashore, Provincetown, Woods Hole, Ferry to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket was easy. This is November, the weather was great, a little cool, and much less traffic than in the summer.

Room Tip: We had a one bedroom unit, with a parking lot side view. Other rooms had view of the Cove. We didn...

We stayed here the last week of August as a time share exchange through RCI. First of all, it's a vacation rental on Cape Cod and those are hard to come by anytime in the summer! We found the property to be well kept and very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the room we stayed in was very modern with two bathrooms. The style of the room we had was a loft so we had an upstairs with a bedroom and the bottom floor was the kitchen, one bathroom, and living room with sleeper sofa. The Cove had everything we needed on property. We never ate at the restaurant there though because there are so many other places to see on Cape Cod. It's a very central location and we traveled to every other town on the cape from here. It isn't too far from anything! The only two things we were not very impressed with were the front desk-- they aren't attentive to any detail at all and only speak to you for about two minutes when you check in-- with that said they also don't bother you so we were fine with this! The other thing I was not impressed with was the indoor pool-- it was very hot and crowded with kids. There are studio style rooms that surround the indoor pool- I would not recommend staying in one of these as it's pretty loud- I would recommend the town house style rooms that we had instead which are on the other side of the property. However, the outdoor pool was large and set up nicely and for the price of places on Cape Cod I would definitely stay here again!!

Room Tip: Townhouse style rooms are much quieter than studio style near the indoor pool!

We exchanged a 5 star timeshare for this place. What a disappointment. We did not get the suite listed on our exchange and we had to walk up a narrow staircase to a loft for the main bedroom. There was no housekeeping/linen change for a week unless you paid extra; there also was a charge for internet access. Laundry was extra and there was always at least one machine not working. Lighting was so bad on the main floor we had to use a flashlight at times. In the booklet Your Passport to Vacation Memories we were also asked to "take a few minutes to bag your trash, wash your dishes and remove your bed/sofa bed linens" upon departure. There were other problems, but I will stop here.

Mid-cape location made it easy to get anywhere else you wanted to explore or to go to restaurants. However, the resort itself needs help. The townhouses are small, the furniture is uncomfortable and the lighting is horrible. We had to turn on every light in the place, open drapes as wide as we could and it was still too dark to read anything! Came for a relaxing vacation off season but this place isn't conducive to that. Parking is a nightmare when you come back after dinner---never stayed anywhere that didn't have parking for every unit and getting to units is a pain---up two flights of stairs and winding through long hallways. Tried the restaurant once when we didn't feel like going out---mistake---equally as dreary as unit and mediocre pizza.

It's really a shame because I think this place could have the potential to be great if they did some updating and maybe add some elevators!

Small rooms appox 10 ft wide - loft for bed ( barley wide enough to walk up - almost straight up ) . No elevators , second bed ( couch) is terrible ( appox 1" deep does not fit the frame - had to get a hotel room next door to get some sleep) . Went to sports bar - it's ok if you want to watch the game they want to watch ( on 9 tv's ) - over charged us for takeout bad bad bad experience where are these people getting 4 stars ????

We stayed at the cove over the Columbus day weekend. We had a great time. we rented three of the townhouses. The best place i have ever stayed on the cape. I wish I new it years ago. The location and the rooms were great. We didn't spend much time in the room. We spent most our time at the restaurant. we went up Friday to try there pizza. We were told it was the best in town. It was great. While we were there a guy started singing. He was very good and we ended up staying the whole night. Every one we met was so nice we went back Saturday for the karaoke. The girl was very good and she talked 3 of us into doing it even though we had never done it before. Sunday we went back to watch football. It was great. There wasn't a bad seat in the house. They have 2 large screens over 100 inchs and many more flat screens. they had lots of great deals on the food that was also great. We hated to go home monday. We will be back.
