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.

Only 5 star resort to have ever exceeded my expectations with food and service. Exemplary service from start to finish in every way. Food was pricey but is worth every bite. Technology was not perfect. TV, fireplace, outlet, and 1 lamp was not working when we arrived. Took a few times to get the TV right but was quickly and professionally… Read more

Privacy and luxury a real one of a kind resort on the National Seashore. A return visit in the future is definitely planned. Even with Covid restrictions, always felt safe and well cared for. This is a place that will not disappoint.

A first-rate resort that frankly stands well above its peers. We just enjoyed Easter at Wequassett and found the food and service at 28 Atlantic and Thoreau's to be as excellent as we remembered them from previous stays. Our spacious signature room had two spacious balconies, both with spectacular water views. All interactions with staff, from reservations to room service to housekeeping were pleasant. During our walks, staff would ask if we needed assistance to reach our destination (we are seniors). All in all, another memorable weekend! Read less

My family and I were itching to get out of town as we hadn't been anywhere due to covid. We decided on a long weekend at the Wequassett, and could not have been happier.

My family and I were itching to get out of town as we hadn't been anywhere due to covid. We decided on a long weekend at the Wequassett, and could not have been happier. It was mid-October and weather was crisp but we had such a great and relaxing time. Our kids are 2 and 4 and they loved the playground, and I can't wait to return in the summer when we can use the pools and the splash pads. We ordered in-room dining on the night of my birthday and did the lobster/clambake and it was excellent. We dined at the restaurant on our final night and that was also a fantastic experience, Very attentive service! Overall we had a great time, and I would highly recommend. I wish they had a spa!

After many visits and luncheons, this resort continues to shine brightly. The pool area is now closed for the season along with the Outer Bar (Which is just wonderful) but the Tavern and restaurant continues to maintain it’s very high standards for fresh and delightful lunch and dinner.
