Enjoyable holiday but property is way overpriced !! Had a cottage for five which was very cramped , barely room for the camp bed. Double bed for adults tiny and very uncomfortable-A lot of the proprty was outdated with rusty nails on steps and in other areas.Place lovely by day by the beach and pool.Dining Facilities poor and place was dead in the evenings-Dont come here if you want entertainment or life in the evenings !! The staff were very nice and helpful but Definately are paying for beach location only, I would not recommend it or be returning.

Ocean view room. Beach and pool are just steps away. Spent 4 days and 3 nights just right for a little time away with my chldren. Staff was great. Any requests were attended to ASAP. Chairs, umbrellas and towels are provided. What else could you asked for. Everything is there no need to leave property.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor are less noisy.

Stayed for 3 nights with my wife and my in-laws for a family reunion. We stayed in one of the cottages and it was very comfy and clean. The kitchen was a bit outdated, but the rest of the cottage was great. The beach was very clean and the attendants would come bring you chairs and umbrellas when you asked. The staff seemed to be figuring things out a bit at the beginning of the season, because many young staff members gave some different responses when we asked about towels, drinks on the beach, etc. Overall, we had a great time and would return for another weekend on the cape.

Room Tip: If you are staying in the cottages, ask for one away from the road so the street lights don't sh...

We stayed for 2 nights in an oceanfront room. The staff were amazing. First day spent by the pool went to have lunch from beach-side cafe at 3:10pm. Found out they closed at 3:00 but the manager had them throw on a grilled cheese for my daughter which was much appreciated. Ordered delivery from Sweet Tomatoes of dinner, then when down & enjoyed roasting marshmallows around the fire on the beach. After a good nights sleep we went to the beach the next day. My daughter loved the Banana Boat ride. Drinks from the bar were great. Staff were always available and eager to help. We will be back!

Room Tip: Spring from the ocean front room!

The rooms were a bit outdated (no microwave or flat-screen TV), but that's not necessary. Room was free using credit card reward program so I cannot complain. The service was nice and the staff members were very happy-seeming. I'd return for an off-season price!

Room Tip: All rooms have a balcony and a partial ocean view from what I could see.
