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.

Everything about this resort is spectacular. The international staff are all extremely attentive and friendly (without being superficial) and the event planning staff are superb.

Everything about this resort is spectacular. The international staff are all extremely attentive and friendly (without being superficial) and the event planning staff are superb. We had planned an outside clam bake but when it became apparent the weather was not going to oblige, the event coordinator was already on top of it and came up with an excellent alternative. The cuisine was some of the best food I've ever had. The grounds and the landscaping are beautiful, with lots of adorably bunny rabbits roaming the gardens. I'm from England originally and must say I love New England! Read less

Beautiful setting & grounds. Food stations tasty. The main building is charming & summer pool lunch venue provides gorgeous water views. A 5 oz glass of wine however is at least $14 so beware. Best to Check out menu pricing to be prepared.

Stayed there in early June. A little disappointed. The pool bar was closed during the week and the pool restaurant was not opened for dinner. There is only one other restaurant and bar on the property. The bar, Thoreau's is tiny, and was packed everyday with a large tour group. Rooms are in desperate need of refresh. Carpets are threadbare in… Read more

There is only one other restaurant and bar on the property. The bar, Thoreau's is tiny, and was packed everyday with a large tour group. Rooms are in desperate need of refresh. Carpets are threadbare in places. Our room (and many like it) opened right onto the parking lot like a motel. the patio as well. Its two patio chairs were never cleaned. Do not rely on website photos. Maid service was efficient but not thorough. Walls are paper thin so we felt part of our neighbors conversations - at least until the delivery trucks drowned them out. perhaps it’s nicer in season. Read less

We just spent 2 nights at one of the resort cottages. The cotrage was outdated, cold, poorly designed with little closet and shelf space. The air con and heating was a noisy wall unit you find at cheap motels. The safe did not work on check in. It also was poorly cleaned as there were spider webs in various ceiling corners. The cleaning and… Read more
We just spent 2 nights at one of the resort cottages. The cotrage was outdated, cold, poorly designed with little closet and shelf space. The air con and heating was a noisy wall unit you find at cheap motels. The safe did not work on check in. It also was poorly cleaned as there were spider webs in various ceiling corners. The cleaning and restaurant staff were polite but not well trained. The lap pool was cold and not clean. Given we paid over $900 per night, the foregoing is unacceptable. When I pointed out these issues on check out no apoligy or recompense was offered. Very poor value for money. Read less
