We were invited to a wedding in Truro in june 2014. After receiving the "reserve the date" notice we make a reservation for the weekend at Horizons Beach Resort. Well, wouldn't you know that when the actual wedding invitation came it included information on reservations at a different hotel. Since we wanted to stay with the rest of the guests I called Horizons Beach Resort, explained that rooms had been reserved at another hotel and that I needed to cancel our reservation. Image my surprise when, with no hassles, the reservation was cancelled AND in full. They didn't even take the 10% fee that was confirmed in the reservation. Now that's customer service.

Needless to say, we will stay at Horizons Beach Resort the next time we're in the Truro area.

Just Kick Back and Relax!!!! Horizons has been our go to place for the past several years. The efficiency with its breath taking view of the bay has a open concept kitchen, living room and a separate bedroom. The accommodations have always been extremely clean, and its nice to be greeted by the owners with Welcome Back. So if your looking for tranquility, long walks on the beach and a beautiful view of the bay this is the place.

Room Tip: We like the upstairs corner efficiency for size, view and air flow.

This time we stayed on the beach, and it was delightful. Managers are helpful, room was kept clean. Don't expect luxury, just a sweet room with sink, stove, fridge. Beds were comfortable, TV was good. A few short steps to the bayside beach, and beautiful views of the sunset over Provincetown Harbor. Location is a few miles out of Provincetown. Great restaurants easily accessed.

This was our first time staying on Cape Cod. We selected Horizons because of the price and location which has views of the Bay. Our cottage had a very good view of the Bay and was a few steps to the beach. We just came back from a 3 nights stays, September, 2013. The place was very clean, updated appliances, HD TV and cable in the living room and both bedrooms. What more could you want? The area is beautiful and quiet. Not sure what it's like in summer high season but my husband and I would definately come back here off season. The Top Mast Cafe is right down the road for breakfast which we found to be very convenient and delicioius. Even though we rented a cottage with appliances, we always eat out. The owner was very helpful as was the staff. To the person who complained about no shampoo being supplied or the fact that they had to be out of there by 10:00 a.m., for non-chain hotels, that is the norm. We did not expect any extras. They did provide soap, towels and ice buckets for ice. We travel alot and we thought this place was great for the price and excellent view from our cottage.

Stayed a few nites, September 2013, at the Terrace Dunes, third floor. No complaints. For the price, probably best at the outer cape.

Good view of the bay. Nice surroundings, gives the vibes of a quiet beach vacation. Room (2 double beds, efficiency, balcony) clean and comfy, spacious enough for 3, bathroom modern enough. Large fridge, 4 stove burners, enough pots and pans and other kitchen accessories to prep/cook meals with. Bring your basic kitchen food supplies though (salt, sugar, coffee, paper towels, etc.). (BTW, if you're driving in, you might want to make a stop at Market Basket (1 Factory Outlet Rd., Sagamore. We got one to 1.5 lb. lobsters for $5/lb. Sweetest lobsters ever).

Swimming pool overlooks the bay but frrrrigidly cold. There might have been too much chlorine in the pool water as I got red non-itchy bumps after a short swim (bumps disappeared after a few hours, so all good).

H.B. Resort beach and water full of seaweed. For beach walk or ocean swim, go to nearby Race Point beach; also Marconi Beach (20 min drive?). Ocean water in September 62 degree Fahrenheit. As the beach entrance post said, "comfortable." Cold (but refreshing) is more like it.

Not to miss - Long Nook Beach in Truro - stunning! Tall sand dunes, wiiiide beach, deep blue sea. But not for swimming - sharks have been sighted, rip current seemed usual, and I saw shark-food --- a fat seal bobbing up and down, watching the shore. Also, Pamet Harbour, for the sunset.

Horizons Beach Resort is around 10 minutes drive to Provincetown. In September, easy to find parking (also not expensive). Great for gallery walk-about - perhaps start in the east end, walk towards the center. Stop at the Provincetown art museum (free Fridays from 5 to 10 pm - check prior though), cross the street to the wonderful Julie Heller East (465 Commercial St.). Other superb stops - the library (check out the 2nd and third floors for the in-library boat) and The Packard gallery (418 Commercial St.). The 4 hour whale tour (Dolphin Fleet) produced no whale sighting (just one, momentarily, from afar) but lots of dolphins.

If my travel budget allows, I'll opt in the future for the beach front bungalows (semi). Two tiny bedrooms, open living-dining, cathedral ceiling, very cape cod feel and look. But book very early for this, as I've been told these bungalows are booked months (years?) in advance.

Thanks, Tom (the manager?). We had a good time.

Room Tip: If two share a double bed, and one is heavier than the other, bed sags a little, in the middle. No...

Spent 3 nights here for a destination wedding. On our last morning, Sunday the week after Labor Day, a knock on our door accompanied the manager/?owner's voice rudely informing us that departure was 10 a.m. (seriously 10 a.m.!) -- no excuses, no extension, no discussion. (Also no shampoo which is a pain if you have to fly and go through airport security to get to this place). Thanks, guys, for your "gracious" hospitality.
