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.

Really enjoyed our stay. Very high-end service, engaged staff. The restaurants (both casual and formal) were top-notch - exceeded expectations. First room we were allocated was musty and we were quickly upgraded to a newly renovated room.

Our final stop after touring in New England, and it really was a great place to stay. The staff were all so helpful, friendly and efficient. There was a complimentary chauffeur service available to take us to restaurants in Chatham, a few miles away, which was very much appreciated. Our room was lovely - very spacious (2 queen size beds and still lots of room), warm (which is often not the case in a hotel room) and with really comfortable beds. We couldn't get the shower to work on our first day and when we rang for help, someone was there within 3/4 minutes. We didn't eat in the hotel, though did have drinks in the bar and the barman (Victor) was really friendly. Unfortunately, while there, we had a sub-tropical storm which meant that due to the wind and rain, ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket were cancelled, which was a big disappointment. However, it was so good to be able to go out in the car to see other places during the day and have a lovely, comfortable room to come back to. The weather conditions also prevented us from being able to enjoy the outside areas at the hotel, which was a shame, but despite the weather we really enjoyed our stay at Wequassett. Read less

The Wequasset Resort and Golf Club is first class and we love dining in all their restaurants. This occasion was a family dinner. Twenty-Eight Atlantic is a true Four-Star, Four-Diamond premier dining experience. This is the resort’s signature restaurant and enjoys the highest ratings on Cape Cod from Forbes, AAA and Zagat. There is a dress code in place of jacket and dress pants for men and dress or pants for ladies. The dining room is beautifully appointed and the service is four star! Everything was perfect from being welcomed to the restaurant to confirm our reservation. to the wonderful waitstaff. We were seated by the windows with a beautiful view. Everyone loved their entrees which were surf and turf and assorted seafood dishes. The experience at the Wequassett was a true four star! Read less

We spent 3 nights at the Wequassett Resort and were delighted with everything. The resort is beautiful, located right at the water’s edge, with immaculate landscaping and great facilities (pools, fitness room, tennis courts, bars, restaurants etc). The dining choices were excellent. The resort also provides a complimentary car service to bring you to local towns such as Chatham. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. However, the standout feature was the staff; everyone we spoke to were incredibly friendly and helpful (especially Otis). If I am staying on The Cape again, I will stay here. Read less
