Beautiful spot right on the ocean...great service from front desk to maid service to the young people setting up the chairs and umbrellas on the beach. Good breakfast in the restaurant also. Just a great overall experience.

Pleasant, dated, very close proximity to neighbors, but enjoyable and like returning to the 60's patio style 2 story motels with lovely gardens and pleasant guests. Stayed one night but would go back and stay a minimum of 2 nights if I were returning. Lots of activities for children.

I stayed at this resort for 4 nights as part of a group tour in June. First, the proximity to the beach is amazing! Everything is well groomed and the property is well maintained. It was a pleasure to have such a beautiful beach to view and walk on. The weather was gorgeous so that only added to the appeal.... More

Thank you for your group stay and we have reviewed your remarks regarding our rooms, our food and beverage, our bathrooms and our remote location. Typically our resort does not serve lunch during the period when just about every guest leaves the property after breakfast to participate in the groups pre planned activities. I met a few others during this... More

My stay was amazing, from the time I checked in, until the time I checked out. Staff was extremely friendly, even let me check in early. Great beach, location is beautiful. I got a room with an ocean view and it was so worth it. I was traveling by myself and felt very safe. I can't wait to go back... More

Nice beach and location. Guest rooms seem to average 500 per night plus taxes, and they are quite subpar compared to other places. The beds and especially pillows are absolutely terrible and lumpy, time for replacement! The ac unit in our room was probably at least 20 years old and you would have to tap the control switches for it... More

Hope you're not hungry when you stay here. Cold chowder, one piece of toast (already buttered) at breakfast, surly wait staff. And miles from anywhere. Shabby furniture in rooms. We were left stranded here on a Friday because they serve no food at all that day. Had to walk half a mile to the nearest restaurant in 85 degrees!

This is a motel style resort; on Cape Cod motels are king. The location is amazing! You are just steps from the soft, white sand of the beach. Most, if not all, of the rooms have refrigerators, and some have microwaves. The décor is basic, but the rooms are a decent size. Many rooms do no have a sea view,... More
