Just returned from an amazing week on the Cape. Absolutely loved Blue Water. We've stayed at other Red Jacket properties and this was by far our favorite. The property was clean and well maintained, staff was wonderful and accommodations were very comfortable. Traveled with my husband and 2 young kids (3 & 5), stayed in a cottage and it was...

My husband found this resort online and could hardly wait to surprise our grown children with a "penthouse" for our rare family vacation. First impression of exterior and shabby lobby gave cause for concern as both were in need of upkeep. Still....we tried to be optimistic as we opened the door to our penthouse that we had booked months ago....

We were excited to try this Red Jacket Resort as it was on the beach and had an indoor and outdoor pool as well. Pros- we had a private beach where there were people to bring chairs and umbrellas down wherever we wanted them. And because it was their own beach, you didn't have to pay for parking. A great...

We booked this as a last minute get away with our 14 year old and our dog and although we had a problem our first night, the rest of the trip was great. We got in around 11:30 pm, room was very musty, rug inside door was stained, Internet was not working, and just over-all rather dingy motel room feel....

We love the Blue Water. After staying here in June, we canceled at a different resort in August to return to the BW, and will be staying here again Labor Day weekend. Amenities are perfect, spotlessly clean, great staff, gorgeous beach. Never feels crowded, even when resort is fully booked.

We stayed at Blue water with friends for 2 nights and it was great. The only bad thing I can say is I wish we could have stayed longer. Rooms were clean, beach was great and so was the restaurant. You don't have to leave the property, everything is there.We will surely be back.

Screaming Mimi pubertarians and their recomposed family hyperactive stomping toddler siblings merely compose the background soundtrack for a sleepless nightlong’s worth of entertainment; no alarm clock needed either should you be able to catch a few zeez before dawn.
