My family and I had a great time during our recent three day stay. There is plenty to do! The food was great and the staff was very accommodating. We will definitely stay again at this excellent ocean front resort! My kids are already talking about going back.

We stayed 4 nights in May. We were happy with our room upon check in. After unpacking everything, we left for a few hours. We got back to our room later in the evening and turned on the TV. There was no power to the TV. We picked up the phone to call the front desk and the phone did...

There are a number of Red Jacket Resorts on the same road "right next to another". We stayed at the Blue Water Resort. Room was nice, very typical hotel room. Very tiny bath room almost had to step in the bath tub to close the door. Very tiny "deck" 2 chairs and a table fills it so even the room...

We stayed here for 6 nights. The three ladies in reception didn't give us a warm welcome when we arrived, nor did they crack a smile between them! They just went through the formalities of taking payment and giving room keys. It felt very uncomfortable checking in. Not a good first impression. We had two separate Ocean view rooms, (actually...

We loved having a small kitchen in our room. They supplied papertowels; dish soap and dishwasher soap. We were in an ocean front room. Nice to look out to all the people enjoying the beach. They also have 2 washer and dryers that everyone shares. I could have packed a lot lighter than I did. This is a very family...

I was pleasantly surprised by this resort. Our room was decent sized and very clean. Not dated. The staff were all very helpful. Although the hotel fit and finish is a bit on the "motel" side, the resort has a nice new pool with a full bar, a private beach along the string of South Yarmouth beaches, and with free...

This place is a GEM. Located directly on the ocean with million dollar views! When you book, make certain that you get Oceanside. We stayed in room 201 (I believe) and the room was large, clean and with a patio overlooking the ocean. Very relaxed atmosphere, a great pool that was very refreshing. Strolled through the grounds and the indoor...

Stayed 7/13-7/19 in a 2 bedroom "cottage". We have 2 toddlers so we were looking for amenities that were as close to being at home while at the beach. The room far exceeded our expectations!
