Horizons Beach Resort
Ranked #6 of 11 Hotels in North Truro
Reviewed September 16, 2009

Horizons is a good place to stay but you do have to know what to ask for as far as room location and proximity to the beach. The newly remodeled "apartments" are nice and roomy buy too far from waters edge for my taste and the view left a lot to be desired because of that. Clean enough though and service was good. I would recommend this place to others but with caveats.

Just returned from our 3rd stay at Horizons Beach. I grew up on the lower Cape and now live on the mid Cape. When you live in such a beautiful place it only makes sense to vacation there as well. Horizons Beach is what the real Cape is all about. A simple, peaceful place to let go of all your day to day stresses. Nice people, friendly staff, clean rooms. You can spend your days with sand on your feet, salt on your skin, and the only real decision is ocean or pool! You can step out your door and walk miles of beautiful beach, or hop the flex bus into Ptown. We stay across the street from the beach and sit on our small deck each night and watch the light change as the sun goes down. The past two years we have been treated to amazing thunder and lightening storms at night.
And if the mood takes you- run down for a late night swim in ocean. If you are looking for a luxury vacation this is not the spot for you, but if you seek quiet, beauty, rest and a chance to unplug from life for awhile this is a wonderful place to be. I know we'll be back next year and hopefully for many years to come. It is really a great place to heal.

We stayed in a room on the top floor of one of the pagodas and were surprised to find that the only entrance to our room was a glass sliding door that hardly locked. The room was very stuffy and smelly and we couldn’t air it out because there were only two tiny windows that opened a foot off the floor, and the sliding door didn’t have a screen to keep mosquitoes and bugs out so we couldn’t keep it open for long. While the view was very nice the windows were too dirty to enjoy it, and it did not make up for the condition of the room. The furniture and carpet were very dated and stained; there was rust on the table and chairs and on the only two lamps in the room. The bathroom was so tiny that the only place they could fit the sink was next to the microwave in the kitchen; the cabinet and sink were very old and dirty. We were excited that our room had a kitchen and planned on making our dinners but because the room felt so dirty we were afraid to use any of their dishes and cooking utensils. We wouldn’t have minded the small size so much if the room was clean. We felt very uncomfortable for our entire stay and tried to stay out of the room as much as possible.

We chose this hotel because of its low price and based on the reviews we read on this site. We did not have very high expectations to begin with and planned on spending most of our week long trip at the beach so we weren’t that worried about the hotel room. However, after our experience with Horizons we will definitely not make that mistake again.

I was so excited to visit the Cape but this place let it down. All the other reviews are great so I was looking forward to our accommodation but was very disappointed. The room we got was not on the water, but across the road, which was fine but seemed as though it had not been cleaned since last summer! it was dusty there were small bugs on the bed and hairs. we got a cheap rate but now I know why. If you are staying here make sure you pay the extra for a front room. amazing spot though!!

Horizons Beach Resort is a nice outer cape spot tucked right on the bay which makes it optimal for children as opposed to the ocean which can get rough and is colder. While the rooms are nothing fancy, they are clean and the shower is powerful and hot if desired (always a good thing). The staff at the desk is courteous and gets it done when needed. You also can avoid all the hustle and bustle of say Yarmouth and the restof the upper cape.

Just returned from a weekend stay at Horizons. We stayed in one of the newer 2 bedroom cottages facing the pool and bay. It was very clean, bright, and the common area was quite spacious. Furnishing are a mish mash, but all in good condition. The price was right for a 2-bedroom in the shoulder season. A few things to consider when booking: we entered the cottage to find that the second bedroom was the size of a closet, with bunk beds (obviously geared toward families), but as we were 4 adults, this wasn't ideal. The manager quickly moved us to another cottage with twin beds in a slightly larger room. In the busy season, this probably wouldn't have been possible, so be sure to ask when booking. Second, the twin beds are ROCK HARD and the pillows are thin and insubstantial... bring your own or ask for extras. Finally, if you're hoping for quiet, the cottages probably won't provide it in-season. Our cottage was tucked between the pool and route 6A, and while quiet enough in early May, will almost certainly not be in the summer. All in all, though, we were happy with our stay, and would come back again now that we know what to ask for when booking.

My husband and I just returned from a mini-vacation on the Cape. We liked the area south of Provincetown where we had decided to stay - close to town, but more peaceful, and situated a short drive from some lovely unspoiled nature. The Horizons Beach Resort looked somewhat more modest than its name implied. However, when we entered our room (at the far end of the shore-front units) we were delighted: Large, comfortable, with lovely views of Provincetown Bay, and all conveniences. In the morning we brewed ourselves some coffee, and sat watching the sea birds while enjoying the cranberry-walnut bread we had purchased in the little grocery store in North Truro. And at night we watched the sun set over the Bay. Beautiful!
