My husband and I stayed at the family owned Surfcomber in August. Not one negative from the cleaniliness, the outstanding front office and cleaning staff to the spectacular grounds. This place with its gardens, had the look and feel of what you imagine cape cod should be.
Resort: The biggesst positive is the location. Away from the hustle and buslte and traffic in the towns, yet close to many restauarnts/shopping. So much to see in the area too, and a short drive from everything. The pool was a great size and received the sun all day. Oustanding staff, everyone was friendly and welcoming. The super comfy lawn chairs and sitting areas on the grass with little tables, to the best beach which was perfect for children and the elderly with a smooth shallow bottom. If you visit their website, the blue comfy chairs are great for an afternoon nap. We played shuffleboard for hours right by the beach. When looking at some beaches at other places, this was certainly the best. We walked along the Shore Drive along the beach, great for biking too with no traffic and lots of walks through adjoing neighbourhoods with beautiful gardens.. Sunrise spectacular.
Rooms: Lovely quiet 2 storey hotel with very spacious rooms. Rooms are very clean and well thought out. Best part of the rooms is they are so close to the ocean you can feel and see it no matter where you are. Grocery stores are close and with the rooms being efficiencies made most of our meals. Nice to have a fridge in your room for beverages.
Golf: We played 2 golf courses which were 1/2 hour away. Cranberry and the Captains - Port which were in excellent condition, and the pace was too, played at 9:00 and back to hotel by 1:30 to relax. They were in the opposite direction from Hyannis so an easy not busy drive.
Sites: We visited, a short drive away, the national seashore park and lighthouse, unbelievable beach and views at the Salt Pond Visitor Centre. The Bass Hole boardwalk is worth the short trip.
Can't wait to go back and will definately be dreaming about this place until next year. The perfect vacation.
