This review is coming in a bit late, however it's a much deserved one! I'm planning my yearly trip to Provincetown and I'm very much looking forward to returning to Crowne Pointe.
First let me say that I've been vacationing in Provincetown each and every summer since 1999. Point being that I've stayed in several of the accomodations and visited others on the strip.
My review is based on *Provincetown standards*!
Over the years, I've learned that rooms in Provincetown are generally small, some too small, which is why I decided to give Crowne Pointe a try last year. And no matter where you go, each place has it's own problem or incident. What matters most is how these situations are handled.
The property is beautiful. I've uploaded some of my photos I took last summer of the walkways, pool, hot tubs, etc. They have lots of sitting areas either by the pool, or around the fountain, and a quite little area in the back which was perfectly located to the side of my room. It's very peaceful and private, located in the center of the surrounding Crowne Pointe property.
As I mentioned, I've stayed in some cramped rooms in P-town. I have learned that many websites post very misleading photos on their site. I won't mention names, however my trip in 2007, I litterally had no where to open my suitcase. So that was my last time there. I decided to check out Crowne Pointe and followed up with a phone call to ask them about the size of the rooms. Being very clear about wanting adequate amount of room, and they assured me there was.
John checked us in. The staff was extremely friendly, warm, & welcoming. Very happy to have us. They assisted us with our luggage to our room, and got our bikes in the bike racks. When I opened the door to the room, I was SO relieved. Now this is what I was talking about. My unit had a nice sized kitchen with a side table. The living room was cozy with sofa, recliner, desk and chair. The bedroom was PERFECT. Very clean and simple. Fireplace (if needed), airconditioning in both living room and bedroom, great closet space, flat screen desktop tv, amazing bed with all clean/fresh linen. (Now the one thing I noted for this year is to bring eye covers. Although the bedroom has shades, they are not light blocking shades, so it got bright in the AM). But luckily I found eye covers at a shop on the strip, I think it was called P-town Pookies. The Bathroom was simple and clean as well.
Now as I've said, each place for each trip will have it's one issue, and for us the water was going down slow in the bathroom on our second day. Someone in another unit had flushed a handtowel down the toilet. The staff had to come in and remove the toilet and snake the washcloth out. They worked very quickly and were very apologetic, although it wasn't their fault. After they finished, they came by with a bottle of wine on ice with glasses and a hand written note regarding the inconvenience. That's exactly what I was talking about earlier in this review, is HOW a situation is handled. It actaully wasn't any inconvenience at all. They acted right away when I called them on the problem.
What I loved about the decor is that it's very simple and VERY clean. I don't like stuffy places or ones that over decorate with gaudy furniture or pictures. I really have not stayed at a better place up in P-Town. I see myself returning here for many years to come.
I did get to experience the spa, which was also clean and professional. I believe the gentleman's name was Michael, who checked me in. Very friendly staff at the spa as well. I had a facial and of course a mani/pedi. I've been to some great spas for facials back at home. FINALLY, I found a great place here as well. I've gone to a spa (Blu Spa?) on Commercial St, and their facial was hideous. They pretty much threw water on my face and I don't even know what else. The Spa at Crowne Pointe has a licensed esthetician doing REAL facials. It was a great facial. I can't remember the esthetician's name, but I hope she's there this year when I return. It truely is the one and only "spa" in Provincetown.
I really can't say enough about this place. Some mention the price of the place. I'm one that doesn't mind spending a little extra money for something that's worth it. I arrived and departed thinking it was money well spent. And I'm looking forward to returning. If there's anything I didn't cover that someone want's to know about, feel free to contact me. PS - I did not eat at the restaurant, just because I made reservations for dinner at my favorite restaurants a month in advance. This year I plan on dinning with them.
A couple little side notes - We were given a parking pass to park in a back side lot right by the hotel. Very convenient, with in/out access. Turndown service each night with chocolates. Staff was extremely attentive and always checking in to make sure we were all set. Again, feel free to ask me any other questions not covered here.
