Wequassett Resort & Golf Club

Cape Cod, New England

The hotel

Cape Cod’s customary clapboard meets chic styling at Wequassett Resort And Golf Club. One of the few retreats to gain Forbes Travel Guide’s sought-after 5 stars, and the Cape’s only member of the luxury club Preferred Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, a stay here is something very special. You’ll find Cape Cod’s natural beauty at its very best, with two beaches, flowering meadows, salt marshes and woods, and endless views from Pleasant Bay into the Atlantic. But you also get some decidedly manmade beauties too, like Adirondack chairs around fire pits, all manner of water sports and boating diversions, tennis, exclusive access to the neighbouring golf club, an incredible infinity pool and lap pool, a pirate ship and aqua playground, and fabulous food in the form of four dining experiences, from casual deck dinners to gourmet waterfront meals.

The room we had was small for two people and the bathroom was not useable for two people. Parking was difficult to manage due to an event onsite that consumed all nearby parking. Forcing use to walk a significant way with our bags. We stayed for a wedding which was held in the Pavilion, it was a glorified tent with loud heat systems that interrupted the ceremony. There was nothing available for us to do at the facility, even the gift shop was closed. THe staff was friendly and receptive which was the lone bright spot. Read less

Took the opportunity at the start of what is hopefully a lull in the number of reported local infections for a first foray away from home after 18 months. Elected to stay at the Wequassett for a change (typically stay at the CBI) for a first visit after hearing recommendations from friends. The resort has a different feel from CBI - despite just a few miles down the road; it is smaller in scale and the grounds are wonderfully maintained. As we visited off peak (September), it was quiet and a little subdued. Check-in was uneventful - the front desk staff were somewhat perfunctory and distracted from a storm that just came by and knocked-out power the day before - I don't believe she made eye contact with me through the whole check-in process. Assigned room (because of the price we paid) was away from the water in a stand alone building that looked extremely tired from the outside and unfortunately, inside as well. The room and all the amenities (furniture, bathroom etc) looked old and in desperate need of a refresh. The layout was not even well thought- through - the TV was on a wall that was not facing the bed or any furniture to speak of. Unfortunately, the power went out for several l hours after we arrived that sullied our first impressions further - no good thinking comes from sitting in the dark in a dank room. However, we did see that other buildings were lit (perhaps from generators) and asked if we could move since we had not even unpacked. Reply from the front desk was to wait it out for another estimated 1-2 hours despite availability (as the resort was empty); we were too tired to protest. We had made reservations at the recommended 28 Atlantic for dinner. The dining room had very nice views of the ocean but the decor and furnishings also looked tired and dated. The wait staff were excellent and the food was good if not a little too complicated (taste-wise) from my perspective. The resort and grounds are nicely laid out and had nice walking trails that offer the promise of rejuvenation for folks like us looking for a respite. Perhaps, if we had access to an ocean-side and newer looking room, our experience may have been more positive but the mixed experience at the front desk and restaurant would deter me from considering a revisit in favor of CBI.

Excellent suite, staff, and overall service. We were greeted with a chilled bottle of Prosecco and chocolate dipped strawberries in our suite to recognize our anniversary event. Everybody greeted us by name and made us feel most welcome!

I loved everything about my stay here. Excellent service. Delicious food. Beautiful location. While it was a business trip, the setting was perfect and made everyone relax. I cannot wait to come back and enjoy it all again.

One of the nicest places I have ever stayed at, and the people were exceptional. Cannot wait to go back. Even with all the weddings going on while we were there, the staff was very attentive, room was perfect, and the beauty of the resort was exceptional.
