My boyfriend and I stayed here for a two night "get away" and everything was absolutely phenomenal. Eddie and his staff are beyond accomodating. The rooms are clean and beautiful. Not to mention the food - fresh made daily and to die for! The house made pastries are different every day and delicious. It was great to end the evening... More

This is my wife's and I fourth stay at this enchanting B&B. The new owners Steven and Paul have continued the standard of excellence established by their predecessors. The service is top shelf in every category. The breakfast and afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres are very delicious. The entire staff are very cordial and respectful. I would highly recommend a...

We planned to stay in Provincetown for 3 nights. With the Carpe diem we found a friendly guesthouse. We had a very nice room, nice designed in an indian/asian style. the whole hotel had this style. There are in the general part of the hotel incense which you have to like, for me a little to much. Breakfast is incredible... More

Oh how we loved staying here (9/6-10/16)! From the moment we were greeted at the front desk by Paul (owner) to our parting words with Stephen (also an owner), we were treated like a king and queen! After checking in, Paul brought us through the tranquil outdoor seating area/garden (complete with trickling water features and a wonderful smell playing in... More

Being a spa addict the opportunity to use the hamam, sauna's, and jacuzzi at the onsite namaste spa (far better than facilities than at other area hotel spas) was what first attracted me to the property. No stone is left unturned by the fabulous, attentive, yet unobtrusive staff. The grounds are comfortable and very well maintained and the rooms are... More

We just came back from our "maiden voyage" to Ptown, and I think it was our favorite vacation together! Carpe Diem had been suggested to me by a colleague who had stayed there with the previous owners. I can't imagine though anyone being better than the current owners, Steve and Paul and their manager Eddie! From the way the lobby... More

Blissful stay! We were upgraded to a Deluxe room (King bed) upon check-in which was a nice surprise! Danny prepared a nice variety of delicious choices for breakfast. We would definitely return to Carpe Diem! We were able to leave our car in the parking lot AFTER check-out so that we could spend the rest of the day exploring Provincetown!... More

We stayed at Carpe Diem last week based on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. Aside from the excitement of Cher staying across the street (yes really - because Carpe Diem was fully booked and refused to throw us out for her - although we did offer to bunk with her!), the rooms are fantastic we...

We have been coming to Carpe Diem for 15 years. This year was another exceptional vacation. We love the room we stay in, and we were pleased with how the new owners added their own flair to our room and 13 other rooms at the inn. Stephen and Paul have worked very hard to give the space their own feel,... More

Cannot say enough good things about Carpe Diem. Stayed there last year with my wife but this year, because my wife was on a business trip, stayed by myself. The setting cannot be beat. Loved just relaxing in the courtyard in the shade with quiet music in the background. Had two of the best massage treatments I have ever had.... More
