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.

From the moment we arrived, to our departure six days later we loved EVERY minute of our stay at Wequassett Resort. Each and every employee exhibited courtesy and a genuine offer of helpfulness throughout our stay. From our wonderfully decadent time at the pool and beach each day, to the memorable Jazz Night on Wednesday, to each Wequassett food experience - we were delighted. The service across the resort was top notch. The resort is spread over lovely, wooded grounds and flowers abound. We found the entire resort to be stunningly beautiful so kudos to the gardeners of this gorgeous Cape Cod oasis. Our Garden View room was quite comfortable and it included a roomy patio where we enjoyed the cool mornings and nights. The only negative that I could come up with, is that many will find the prices over their budget. That said, I will tell anyone who will listen that this has to be on your "bucket list". We can't wait until our next visit. Read less

I live 1.5 hours away from this property. This was my second visit to this hotel. As you can see, this hotel is VERY expensive. Its hard to shell out this kind of money for a few days vacation in my own state. However, having stayed at some of the best hotels in the world, I know excellent service. On my precious few vacations, where I'm footing the bill in cash, I'm going to find the best service I can afford. What you are really paying for at this hotel is excellent service. Check in was simple and quick. Our room was amazing (and it needed to be for the price we paid), perfectly clean and overlooking the water, with a patio, and a very modern design (subzero fridge, mini bar was stocked and prices of drinks were unusually fair, a nice bottle of wine with cheese and crackers and chocolate chip cookies were waiting for us). The food and service at the restaurant, Twenty Eight Atlantic was incredible. The pool staff is really what impressed us, as that is where we spent 80% of our time. They even had acoustic music each night playing near the pool restaurant and bar. The pool staff was highly attentive, positive and respectful, despite being mostly comprised of young adults. They seemed 10 years older by the professional attitude they displayed. I was fearful that due to the labor shortages seen elsewhere, the hotel would not be fully staffed, but was pleasantly surprised to see a full complement of staff everywhere I looked. In the end, the service was very impressive (and inspired this note). A water view room alone does not warrant the prices being charged here (as some other competitors may think). I attribute this service quality culture to very strong management (paradoxically, I don't think I ever saw or spoke to a manager at the resort). Unfortunately, on the cape there are limited options for high end hotels. If you want an excellent relaxing vacation with top notch service, this is your hotel. This would not be a fair review if I didn't provide constructive feedback. So FWIW, here are a few things. 1. Eating outside for breakfast was a non-starter without umbrellas. We ended up sitting inside each day as it the sun was right on you sitting outside. This is a very simple thing to fix and make breakfast more enjoyable. 2. While we saw the water from our room, our patio hedges were very tall, so we could not see the water over them-I thought we would be able to hang outside and enjoy drinks overlooking the water. It seems in the tug of war between privacy and water view, the water view lost, to my displeasure. 3. The wetlands are starting to grow up through the floorboards of the cabanas (which rent for $300+ a day). This attracted lots of small bugs. Read less

The staff was extremely accommodating and welcoming. From planning, to arrival, to changing during our retreat. Everything was handled professionally and quickly. The resort itself was stunning and was ideal for not only focus but relaxation.

We’ve stayed here several times and it’s great for families as well as couples get-a-ways. The service is amount the best I’ve experienced as an avid leisure and business traveler. The only real ding is the outrageous pricing vs quality for the pool bar food. Just OK quality, but not for the prices charged. We received several meals that were under cooked as the was resort was packed and they were probably rushing. If you are willing to pay for a $26 basic cheeseburger, it better be on-point and not rare with soggy fries (happened more that once). The food at 28 Atlantic is also pricey, but worth the ask. I highly recommend breakfast and the fine dining offered. The grounds are in pristine condition and you feel like you are in a special place from the moment you turn onto the red painted entrance. Make sure to take the boat launch to their private beach on Nauset. Read less
