Cape Winds Resort
Reviewed May 10, 2010

This place would be great for a small family. We had two large bedrooms with dressers and closets. Two baths, large clean kitchen, large dining table for six comfortably. The living area had two sofas in front of the TV. You did not feel crowded at all. The patio had a table and chairs as well. The facilities had a pool and play area for the kids. Be sure to bring your own coffee, but there is a grocery store next door. The kitchen had lots of cabinets and space to cook. There is also a great restarant across the street.

What else could you want? While modest, the rooms were large and very clean. A great layout with 2 bedrooms (1 with 2 twins - the other with a queen size bed) and a fold out couch. There is a good-size balcony (not completely separated from whoever is next door - but one can also see who is across on the other side of the resort - so don't plan on sunbathing nude) with a table and chairs, as well as a sun umbrella/parasol; the kitchen is well-equipped and large and there is an indoor pool as well as a nice outdoor common area. The location is handy to most everything and the people who work here were all very helpful and pleasant. I found it quite charming and a very good value. I came here through a timeshare and, having been to about 2 different resorts/hotels in the U.S. every year for the last 8, certainly think that this one is to be recommended.

We arrived and my wife immediately wanted to look for a Courtyard or Marriott hotel close by. The kitchen is upstairs, the sleeping area is downstairs. The stairs to go up are in a spiral configuration which means if you are not thin or trying to carry groceries up to the kitchen you'll never make it up. The outside deck is not private, privacy barriers between rooms, but they aren't separated from each other. Your next door neighbor can easily walk around the barrier and there you are. There was one place to eat breakfast across the street, but dinner was a couple of miles away. This is an old motel, that was turned into a "resort", not a place I would recommend.

This is a cute little resort. 34 units. Was able to add an extra night. All in the front office were pleasant and friendly. Helped in any way they could. Unit was clean and well stocked. Enjoyed the location and the convenience of the supermarket next door. The only negative is the sauna that has not worked for the past year. Also the carpeting needs to be cleaned. We would definately go back.

If you like living in Star Markets back yard this is the place for you.. Location, location, location...this is the biggest problem with this place. I was disappointed...1.5 miles from the beach, which is where you want to be if you go to Cape Cod. I might was well stayed home. Limited WIFI in select rooms only. Missing screen on front window.
The location was dreadful. Too far from everything, except Star Market.
Staff was very nice but the place itself is in an awful location.

The Cape Winds Resort is a wonderful window back in time to a simpler way of vacationing before on-site spas, couples massages, valet parking and grueling treadmill workouts. Substitute instead, kids playing baseball with the uncles and cousins, paddle boat rides, friendly employees who get to know you and really care if you are having fun and and answer one mlllion questions patiently with a smile. No large, flat screen tv's and muted upscale decor here, substitiute cheerful colors, and a tv and remote that are simple to operate, a back door that opens up to a spacious lawn with various lawn games, a heated pool and a view down to a tidal pond. Also paddle boats and row boats to goof around in. There is a nice double motor power-boat you can rent, but you will need to rent a captain along with it. We booked a kitchette which was perfectly adequate to prepare and serve meals with a spacious bath and dressing area; everthing was spotlessly clean and in good order. The friendly staff cheerfully answers one million touristy questions and requests for directions, but it is the individual concern shown by the owner, Rachel, that really stands out. Two examples; our room had a plumbing problem that was taking a little longer to fix than anticipated. Rachel came and found us at the pool, and offered us another room for the afternoon while the plumber worked in our kitchen. On Sunday morning as she drove by on a Starbucks run, she stopped and asked us if we wanted anything. To me that means that Cape Winds guests are really "her guests" and not just mobs of tourists bugging her at every moment. Having said that if you are looking for the upscale spa resort experience this place probably isn't for you. But why not take a chance on authentic Cape Cod, this is the place family memories are made for a lifetime. We will be heading back.

I guess I have been spoiled with high quality resort types within my own timeshare company. I exchanged for this resort. I only stayed 4 days as a birthday getaway. The staff was generally helpful. We used thier guest computer to charge up our camera. The place was older, but yes it was remodeled. This place did not meet my standards of a resort and I think it's misleading to call it that. It had a volleyball court on their lawn, I don't consider that recreation. The rooms were clean and equipped. Regular TV's not flat screens or jucuzzi tubs. Basically, it was a hotel suite. If that's what you expect then that's what you will get and you will not be disappointed. At nights weird noises can be heard in the walls, sounded like dripping noises or cracklin. Location was not the best, you'd be better off staying closer to Mashpee or right at Falmouth, especially if you plan to go to the Vineyard. But Hyannis is central so if you plan to go to P-town it's great, only an hour. In the summer there is a ferry that goes to the vineyard but it takes longer than an hour, depending on the ferry possibly 2hrs. From Falmouth it's only 40 minutes. Not a lot of modern shopping in the area, however, Mashpee is growing and developing and a good area to visit. Ok, so in a nutshell:

Pros: Next to a market, central area, rooms average and full kitchen, clean
Cons: No bells and whistles, older looking, no variety of recreation, NOT A RESORT!!
