Ocean Club On Smugglers' Beach
Ranked #3 of 21 Hotels in South Yarmouth
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 February 2006

Just returned from a 3 day stay with husband and children. I was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the negative reviews but decided to give "The Ocean Club" a try anyway. We loved it. The 1 bedroom suite was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. It was kids vacation week and they had many activities for the kids...pool games, beach combing,Bingo, Ice cream socials etc. The staff was very accomodating with special requests. A few of the negative reviews stated that there is no maid service etc. but that is only true for the primary owners as this is a time share resort. We received daily cleaning, maid service and towel changes. The only negative point is that the walls just around the gas firelplaces are thin and you can hear the people in the adjoining rooms talking, running water and also when the in room jacuzzis are being used. I am a 20 year flight attendant and have stayed in many different types of hotels over the years. We only paid $90.00 per night and I know the same room runs about $260.00 for high summer but that is what you are going to pay on the Cape if you want to stay directly on the ocean in summer. We had a great time and will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the hotel based on reviews..very glad we did! the rooms are perfect, very clean, beautiful views. Right on the beach! Pool is also on the beach and for those of us with no children, they have designated adult only pool hours!! The sunset/sunrise is flawless. Staff was very accomodating. Will definitely stay here again.

Have been going to the cape the last five years for an off season vacation. My wife and I were lucky enough to happen on this resort by chance. The cost is a good value considering what you are getting for your money.The beach is located just outside your door. The sunrise is fablous over the Atlantic !! The glass enclosed pool and hot tub are always clean and fairly quiet during the off season. Staff is exceptionally pleasant and always helpful. Problems are corrected immediatley when brought to the staff's attention. This is motel is one of "the best" motels that we have encountered on the cape. We would reccomend staying and see for yourself just how outstanding "The Ocean Club On Smugglers' Beach" truly is.

Went on a get away trip to the Ocean Club in November. We don't care much for the crowds of the summer. The heated pool was very nice and clean. The resort does not cater to children. Mostly couples. Its very quiet during this time of the year. No traffic jams or long lines at the restaurants. If you don't care for crowds and would rather walk the beach instead of swimming in the ocean, this is the time for it. We did not encounter the problems other people seemed to have at this resort. Everyone was nice and every thing was clean, with nothing "not working".

My husband and I go to the cape at least twice a year and the ocean club was truly a pleasant surprise. The rooms were very nice and quite clean. The staff was very helpfull and we really loved the view and the location. We have stayed at a few places on this strip of beach before and we were quite disapointed. The Ocean Club is the place for us!

We stayed at the Ocean Club the week of September 9th in a "one bedroom" condo on the first floor in the corner. The room was decorated in a nautical theme, was fairly nice, and was functional for two of us. It was more like an efficiency with a large blue bubble tub in the corner and a mini kitchen with a microwave and coffee maker. The "balcony" was probably 1 ft by 2 ft and looked out over two parking lots and a little of the beach. The private beach belonging to the condo was fairly small, was connected to some other private beaches, and was not that nice. The national seashore beaches along the east side of Cape Code are much nicer.
The pool and exercise areas were nice, but small, and the complex seemed to cater to the older, retired crowd. We didn't have our family with us, but it didn't seem like a very family, or kid, friendly place (ie kids couldn't use the hot tub or swim in the pool during certain times of the day, no activities for kids, etc). The general community around the facility, South Yarmouth, is overrated, very congested with traffic, and a tourist trap. The towns on the eastern side and northern tip of the Cape Cod peninsula are much nicer and I would stay there instead. It wasn't a bad place to stay, but it was nothing special either.

This place had to be one of the worst hotel or more like a roach motel I have ever seen. I thought these places are only in the movies. At $260 per night with a two night minimum... it was a highway robbery. We found the place to be absolutely filthy. MOLD CITY!! Everywhere we looked, there were some sort of growth going on. To make our experiance even more horrifying, our daughter started to wheeze due to the mold in the so-called 1 bedroom suite. We ended up sleeping in our car because it was such a health hazzard. We checked out the very earily next morning and explained to the girl at the front desk with our experiance. I requested a manager call me ASAP but the woman never returned our numerous calls. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY or TIME AT THIS PLACE...TRUST ME...IT A ROACH MOTEL!!
