We stayed in the 2-bedroom suite for a week in September. The bedrooms were cozy and were adjoined by a shared bathroom, which has obviously been upgraded in recent years. And yes, there is a hairdryer in the bathroom! The suite was clean and very comfortable, and we cooked in most nights that we were there. I loved that the...

After a long day of sightseeing we decided to find a place close by. We were able to check out a couple of rooms and chose the suite which was on the lower level. Very spacious and clean (except for the sticky remote) good price for one night.

This was our 3rd year staying at Cape Pines. It is comfortable, convenient and oh so clean! I especially love the beautiful pool area. Such a treat to come back to after a day at the beach or exploring the island. We'll be back again!

Far but worth it!! Nice, clean and quiet place. My boys really enjoyed the pool. The best part is that is pet friendly!!!! Mak our dog really enjoyed his first trip to the beach. A little warning for those who don't enjoy the visit of little frogs... they come out at night and stick to your door.

My family came for a week vacation in August. As soon as we arrived we walked into the cleanest rooms we have ever seen! Our room was two bedrooms and a couch bed. The beds were very comfortable and the room stayed cool all day. The room also had a kitchen, well equipped with the necessities to cook, so we...

I was glad that we chose this place for our short stay. The room (No: 25) we stayed was spacious, comfortable and quiet. The ambiance of the pool was very nice during evening hours. The staff members were very friendly and approachable and helped with local knowledge. I would certainly recommend this place.

We just got home from a two night stay at the Cape Pines Motel (July 25th and 26th, 2016). We found it to be clean, quiet, and comfortable. We read many reviews before booking a room.
