Have you been to Ocean Club on Smuggler's Beach lately?

    The Ocean Club was completely renovated in 2011. The rooms are brand new and quite luxurious, each 1 BR unit divides into two sleeping areas with 1 queen and 1 sleeper sofa. Each has 2 flat screen TVs, fireplace, granite countertops, newly tiled bathrooms, tiled floors, all new soft goods in tasteful cape colors. Guests share a glass-covered pool right on the ocean, hot tub, sauna, fitness gym, private beach and wind-protected ocean-front patio. The 2BR units have full kitchens and private hot tubs. Of course the one thing that didn't change was the spectacular ocean view.

    The Ocean Club at Smuggler's Beach Is the Cape and the Sea at its Best. Walk out from your unit directly onto a clean and sparkling beach, with its beautiful waters, or recline on the patio deck, enclosed by glass. Units completely renovated as of summer of 2011. Very nice, more spacious, including all new floors, walls, furniture, bathrooms, and kitchenette areas, with microwaves, toasters, coffee machines, and refrigerators. The gas fireplaces remain. Immaculate. Private beach, nice enclosed deck with gazebo. Near all mid Cape activities. We were very happy with our stay, just a couple of days ago, and hated to leave. Perfect ocean resort.

    Location is everything for this resort. No drive to the beach or fees to park your car. The units are admittedly small and suitable for a couple or small family. There is only a partial kitchen but there are plenty of restaurants in all price ranges close by. Almost every unit has ocean views. The glass enclosed pool makes you feel like you are on a cruise ship on the ocean. The resort is currently getting ready to refurbish all of the units but they are still very nice. Each unit is bright and decorated in the Cape Cod cottage theme. We stayed here in September - no crowds, very quiet, warm ocean temperatures. The resort is open year round except January. Each unit has a gas fireplace and in room jacuzzi which makes for a cozy winter escape also. The location is also convenient for daytrips to Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Plymouth, Providence and more. A car is necessary for this area. The staff is very dedicated to making you feel at home. Most are long term employees and enjoy their jobs. Planned activities are mostly for children and require a small fee for materials.

    The resort was very comfortable, perfect for a cozy couple or 1 person alone, a family would be cramped, I thought, at least in the one bedroom unit.

    The buildings are older, but clean and well maintained. The wind deck is perfect, allows you to be on the beach in situations you normally would run for cover from the chilly wind. I'd definitely return.

    If you are looking for a waterfront property on the Cape, this is the best. Staff is consistently fabulous, close to town (especially the Pancake Man and Cuffy's!) yet overlooks the water. We have owned for several years, will not consider anyplace else. Daily activities for kids, safe, calm beach.

    This is perhaps the best oceanside resort on the cape. Location is great and staff is friendly.

    However, as a resort it lacks a great deal. Units are small and without kitchens. Your view depends on your unit - only a few have good views.

    White sand beaches & "true" oceanfront on the cape are hard to find but this one has it. 1 bedrooms are a little small but the 2 bedroom was a nice size. Some rooms have a limited view and some have fantastic views. The resort has a nice oceanfront pool (indoor in winter). The South Yarmouth area is full of shops and restaurants but you will need to drive as all is within a few miles. We love the off season here due to the beachfront pool, gas fireplaces, great views and no lines like in the summer. All boats to the islands are minutes away. South Yarmouth sits in a central location on the West Coast of the Cape so all areas of the Cape are a short easy drive.

    These units are ocean side, which makes them a rare commodity in Cape Cod, though most units do not have a great ocean view. Because of local by laws there are only a few full kitchens but a community kitchen is provided if you care to go down the hall to heat your food. The units are very small, and becoming somewhat worn. The proximity to stores, restaurants etc. is super. Not 5* for sure but a solid 3*

    Units are comparatively small, but well appointed and clean 2-rm suites with in-room jacuzzi, gas fireplace. Personnel are friendly & helpful. Excellent location in central part of cape, on warm water side, less than an hour to any other cape area or ferries to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket.
