“Quiet Weekend, Nice Resort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

We were a little nervous to stay here because of some of the reviews. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised. It is my understanding they remodeled and became a smoke-free Resort about three years ago. So, any of the reviews on here that are older than three years may not be relevant now. I also found out that this is a Resort that you can buy timeshares. They have suites and townhouses, both one bedrooms, two bathrooms with a pull-out sofa. (No pull-out sofa is comfortable, this one included, so be prepared.) All the townhouses are on the second floor with loft bedrooms. There are no "regular" hotel rooms. They all have a small refridge, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, and a set of dishes, cups, and silverware. There is an indoor and outdoor pool with two tennis courts. There is a separate building for other activities and family move nights. There seems to always be some activity going on for kids. They even have rooms that surround the indoor pool on three sides. I only have three issues........when making the reservation I asked for a first floor suite because of a disability. I was told the resort had elevators. Upon arrival I found out there were no elevators and we were on the second floor. I explain the situation and a first floor room as found. The second issue is that they use a lot of chlorine in their pool. The pool is located in the lobby, so you can smell it when you walk in. We were only able to swim for about an hour because our eyes and face were red and sore. Even the people in our group that didn't swim could not sit in the pool area for long without their eyes burning. The third issue was the smokers. Since they couldn't smoke in their room they decided to smoke directly in front of the entry doors. Having to walk through a group of smokers when entering or exiting the building is not pleasant, especially when I found out they could smoke off their balconies/out their sliding glass doors--which all rooms have.That being said--the cleaning staff, activities staff, pool staff, and towel staff were friendly. Some of the front desk staff was not so friendly--Matthew was by far the best. The suite was clean with plenty of windows for natural light. The is a restaurant on the second floor of the lobby--it was not recommended so we didn't go. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, even for someone with a disability. Overall, we would go back because of the amenities and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the ice machines may be quieter. Rooms in the back facing the water or woods have ni...

This was the annual girl's weekend on the Cape. The hotel we usually stay at was closed for renovations and we found the Cove on-line. We knew of the place but no one had stayed here. We were very pleased with the townhouse although we were on the second floor with no elevator. The room numbering system makes no sense so be sure to find your room before you wander the halls with your arms full of bags and boxes! It looked like our townhouse was brand new, everything was in perfect condition and very comfortable. The small kitchen (no stove but a microwave) was well outfitted, a complete set of dishes, glasses and silverware. Even wine glasses were provided. There was also a toaster and coffee pot. This will be our new location for the annual event!

Room Tip: The two story townhouse is wonderful.

This is a true resort and we were glad it was so. I can see how in the summer season this resort is packed. The rooms are well appointed and very nice. The room we were in was two story - bedroom/bath up the stairs, kitchen/dining room/living room area and bathroom down. Nicely sized and arranged. Everything was it great repair and looked very new. We stayed there the weekend of January 17th, which happens to be the only day of true snowstorm that we have seen this winter. So arriving was a relief. The great thing was that we checked into the room, got settled and went to the sports and recreation center next door. For a nominal fee we played pool ($3) and Wii games (free) to pass the time. And we had fun in a way we didn't expect to. The center also has raquetball, basketball, tennis (all indoor), video games, air hockey, etc. something for everyone. There is also a daily itinerary of activities for the kids, although when we were there there weren't many. It was pretty quiet (no suprise). Then instead of braving the weather to find dinner we went into the restaurant above the lobby - 4 guys - and had dinner. It was very good and reasonably priced. So basically we didn't leave after we got there, it worked out great. And I can see how a family would love this place for a summer vacation. Lots to do for the kids, indoor and outdoor pool, the sports center and that doesn't include and day trips you might want to take - and oh yeah - the beach :). Also centrally located and near alot of shops and restaurants. Yes, I would definatly go back.

Room Tip: Ask for a water view room - they face the bay, instead of the parking lot.

We spent a long weekend in January at the Cove at Yarmouth and had a great time. The room was clean and there were plenty of activities for the kids. The pool area was also clean and not too crowded or noisy. There are a couple of decent restaraunts within walking distance. The 4 Brothers Bistro in the hotel was marginal at best.
