We have had just perfect times at Blue Water since 1995 during periods from June through September. Have been in rooms in every building...main, Edge of The Sea (two times) & Sandpiper (when tennis court existed !!) The staff has always been extremely accommodating, efficient and friendly. Our recent stays in August & September as always were so relaxing. Since...

We stayed here as part of an organised tour. The other hotels we used were both Hiltons and there was absolutely no comparison. I appreciate that this is towards the end of the season so maybe it's better when the place is more active. However, if you are going to be open at all, you should try and make it...

My husband and I decided to visit Cape Cod for a long weekend get away. Arrived late, but Paula and Alex were all smiles and extremely helpful when booking our room. Our room overlooked the beach and the pool...amazing view! The room was perfect except our air conditioner was not cooking properly. The maintenance crew had the entire unit replaced...

Blue Water was just what we were looking for; a place right on the water, with a pool-- two actually, one outdoor and one indoor with a large hot tub-- that was pet friendly, and reasonably priced. This Red Jacket Resort also had a very high staff to guest ratio and everyone we encountered couldn't have been kinder and more...

We had a great time at the Blue Water! Based upon TripAdvisor reviews, we were unsure what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised. The beach is lovely, the facilities were nice and well-maintained, and there was a laid-back atmosphere that was perfect. We loved the beach bar and enjoyed amenities like free morning yoga. Probably related to the timing...

I stayed at the Blue Water for four days in September before Labor Day. It was a very clean and well maintained property. My room was #106 and very comfortable with a little balcony facing the ocean and it had plenty of storage space.

This was a pleasant, pretty resort right on the water of Nantucket Sound. The beach is the best part of the resort; it's a lovely long expanse of sand, much bigger than the beach at other resorts in the area (we stayed at Ocean Mist last year, and their beach was puny by comparison). I also appreciated that Blue Water...
