We stayed at the Red Jacket for 4 days with our 7 year old and it is defiantly a family oriented hotel. Our little one loved the "Kids Club" in the mornings. That kept her busy from 9:30 to 1! (hooray!). Breakfast buffets was not cheap but the food was good and we did not feel it overpriced, the afternoon grill by the pool was VERY handy as you just wandered over in your bathing suit and could get excellent burgers, dogs or salads. Pools were very nice, beach a little iffy, fairly heavy vegetation made going in the water somewhat unpleasant, consequently few ventured in the water which was sad. I had to walk out about a half mile to get beyond the seaweed but that was fine as the water was still only 5 feet deep! Lots of stuff to do close by including the great "Pirates Cove" miniature golf.

The Hotel really needs to be updated...furniture is very old and beat up. The bathrooms were terrible...hair dryer kept falling off the wall...bathtub drain was slow and the condition of the room was poor.

Our son has multiple food allergies and the staff were wonderful in checking ingredients. Great beach, nice activities (kids club, tennis, shuffleboard, etc.) We did have an ongoing problem with wireless, but the hotel handled it well. The hotel building itself seems like an old motel that has been refurbished, but despite narrow hallways and smallish rooms, they have done a nice job. One odd thing is that there is almost nowhere, not even in the bathroom, to hang wet things.

Terrible rooms smelled of must and the staff was lazy and service was poor. Not to mention extremely high priced for what you are getting. The beach was rocky and dirty and looks it has not been cleaned in years. The water was full of sea weed as well

We had a great stay at this Red Jacket Resort. Our ocean view room was a very short walk to the beach. The staff was very nice. The different activities of each day were refreshing and broke up the week. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained.

The staff at the front desk and the concierge Marge were really friendly and helpful. The rest of the crew of the hotel could have been more attentive and friendly. We had an Oceanfront room, they view was georgeous! few steps from the ocean and the pool. I really like they have heated pools because it was breezy at times. Room was nice but needs update a little. Overall, great stay, I would come back.

"It's fine, but I'm not sure we'd choose it again"
04/24/15 RobinHorrigan Canton, MA
We were looking for an easy Cape getaway at a resort that had multiple heated pool options, both in and outdoor. We like the Cape off season but haven't found the right place to stay yet. Based on Red Jacket's website, they have three heated pools, but only the indoor pool was available during our stay, so we were very disappointed. I felt that if only one pool was going to be available during the "off season," that should be made clear. If a pool was is out of order, guests should be notified at check-in when it will be up and running again. We booked with an April vacation special package, which included our breakfast, and that was a nice added value. Coffee ready in the lobby in the morning. Our kids got their caricatures done and we enjoyed the magic show. The resort wifi is free and works great. We booked a first floor ocean-front room so the kids could go right outside; unfortunately the room we got was on the very end of the building, and it was extremely noisy with herds of kids stomping and running up and down the hallway for hours on end. With the stairwell right outside it was almost unbearable. The walls and ceilings in this hotel are so thin that we could actually hear the guest upstairs *using* the toilet. The bathrooms are extremely dated, there was visible water damage on the ceiling of our room, and when we took a blanket down from the closet we found it full of sand and beach debris. It didn't feel super clean, but sometimes when facilities are dated they just don't seem clean no matter what you do. As far as the perfect not-crazy-expensive-but-fun place to stay on the Cape -- we need to keep looking.

"Perfect for some downtime!"
04/21/15 lizard211 Boston, Massachusetts
We just returned from a relaxing, much needed long weekend at the Red Jacket Beach Resort in South Yarmouth, MA with two kids ages 10 and 13. Our room was facing the ocean and our sliding door allowed us to exit the room and walk a few steps to the beach. Granted, it was not perfect beach weather (rainy, windy one of the days) but just to be that close to the ocean automatically just calms you down. It is a beautiful view. We love going off season to the Cape to avoid the summer tourists and crowds. An awesome breakfast was part of our stay and the location is close to everything we wanted to do...Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory worked out well for the rainy day. There is a trampoline park which was great too to burn off some energy in between. Cape Cod Mall is close by as well as many restaurants. The MA Audubon Society has some nearby sites and hiking trails that we would highly recommend and were able to visit enroute home. Rooms were clean, staff was friendly, beds were very comfortable. Bathroom was small and the sink was separate from the shower area which I always personally find a little inconvenient but not a big deal. Indoor pool was great for the rainy day. They do have a restaurant and spa on premise but other than the breakfast didn't use either. THey had two elliptical machines and two treadmills on the upper level of the pool area....a little older equipment and because of the humidity from the pool area, it was a little different for a workout but it was nice to have than not to have it there. As part of the Kids' School vacation week, they had some entertainment....which was weak. We saw a magician which was ok, but a lot of chit chat and not enough magic. Toddlers loved it, but older kids in the audience seemed to be losing interest fast. There was also an XBox tournament, but poorly organized. Over 40 kids of all ages and one console to play. We went to be near the ocean and for that it was perfect!!

We had a wonderful trip last August. The room was basic but clean. Doesn't matter as you are always outside on beach or at pool. You felt very comfortable letting kids run around. They go out of their way for families, free kids club! Movies at the pool. The food is fantastic - best lobster quesadilla ever. Meet John the manager and he was Terrific. Heard they maybe renovating rooms and we hope to return this summer.

You can get good rates off season, if money is tight for you. The Red Jacket South Yarmouth is in the best location on Cape Cod. Right on the ocean, as well as a small inlet, which gets you incredible sunsets. There's a pub on site, indoor & outdoor pool, beautiful grounds. It's quaint as well, as they are the only resort, that I know of, that still uses a real room key! It's right on a very large open beach. It made a great Mothers Day gift for my Mom.

After reviewing so many Cape hotels, I decided on Red Jacket. I am so glad I did. We had stayed at Red Jacket for a family reunion close to 20 years ago. Loved the beach so thought why not try it again for our 25th wedding anniversary. I expected it to be tired and maybe a little run down, after all, it has been around a long time. Yet was pleasantly surprised by the upkeep. If you're looking for all new and shiny, the Cape isn't for you. Sea air can take it's toll on any building. From other reviews, I guess our room had been updated. It was clean, bed was comfortable and great pillows. I wanted a water view and wow, the view was spectacular. We lucked out and got a corner room with ocean and river views. I thought I would have preferred the first floor to just walk out to the beach yet the second floor gave nice privacy on the deck. If we went with friends I would request first floor so access to the other rooms is easier. It was extremely windy during our visit yet the free umbrellas worked well to hide behind. Also having free lounge chairs on the beach was a big plus. The outdoor pool was pleasant, especially having the glass walls to block some of the wind. We didn't eat at the resort so I can not comment on the food. We did have celebratory Bloody Marys from the bar which were fabulous. All of the staff we encountered were very pleasant and professional. Always a hello and smile. Definitely will be back.

I recently visited this resort with my family and could not have been more pleased with our stay. The staff at Red Jacket was welcoming and attentive. My nephews (6 and 4) had a blast and the games / activities offered by the resort were a huge hit. The resort rooms, pool, beach, dining areas, etc. were extremely clean and there was always staff available to us if we needed anything. The manager (Diane) was also a pleasure to deal with and was eager to ensure our stay was enjoyable. I will be visiting next year and I would encourage anyone (with or without children) to visit this resort. Overall, we were very pleased.

11/03/14 Alexander F Dusseldorf, Germany
beside, that we are a family with a ten year old child, our kid had critizised, that there had been to many children in the pool; but at least there is a pool and a wonderful beach. We had a perfect room directly a longside the beach, but there are many rooms with a very limited view. The breakfast was a sweet american horror; sugar in everything, but no normal bread or cheese. For dinner we found a very good sea food restaurant nearby.

My daughter was married on the Cape and had her reception here in September. The entire weekend from start to finish was perfect! Every single staff member greeted us with a smile and was more than happy to answer a question or offer help. Not often do you find this in customer service and I feel that it should be recognized. The place was clean. Food and service for the cocktail hour and reception was fabulous. I highly recommend this resort.

10/28/14 busdriver1369 Ellington, Connecticut
Loved the hotel. Location is in the middle of the Cape with access to either end. First time staying at this hotel. Beautiful room, opened up to the beach, gorgeous hot tub. Breakfast in the restaurant was excellent. Problem was when I returned to the hotel on Saturday. Mirror had not been wiped down, hot tub still had glass marks from the wine the night before. Made me wonder how clean the room really was when I arrived.

"Our Favorite Spot on the Cape"
10/19/14 Frances S Boston, Massachusetts
We have been staying at the RJ for the past 15 years for an Anniversary get away, same week, same ocean front room. We cannot say enough about the RJ, the accommodations, the meals, and especially the staff. The Manager, the staff at the desk, the bartenders, the chefs, the housekeeping staff, the grounds keepers, they are all super people, who seem to love their jobs. It really shows! We feel very special when we stay there, it's like home away from home, so relaxing. We would say it is the best place to stay on the Cape. The grounds are beautiful to look at, the rooms and pool area are kept very clean. Last year for the first time we experienced Kentucky Derby weekend and it was awesome. We plan on making this a yearly custom as well. We just got home and can't wait to go back. Thanks to Tom, the Manager, and his entire staff. They are a credit to the Davenport organization. --Leo & Fran S.
