Our family stayed at this resort in July 2018. The people were nice and accommodating, but the resort is in need of refurbishing. The rooms are run down and could use sprucing up. My husband went to this resort with his family years ago, and he remembers it being much better.

Hello Crandall7217, Thank you for the review of your stay with us this past summer. You will be happy to hear that we are currently undergoing quite a few renovations here at Red Jacket Beach Resort. This year's projects include painting, tile work, carpeting, improving handicap facilities and new fitness equipment. This week's cold spell has us all looking forward to the summer sun! We hope to see you and your family back at the beach! Sincerely, Hollie Handrahan General Manager

Hotel's Favourite
Visited right after Columbus Day so this is a off season review. A lot of activities that you get charged a resort fee were not applicable and there wasn't a lot of families so the resort was very quiet and not crowded. This is just what we hoped for a quiet peaceful getaway.

The temperature is typically low 70s at that time of year. I would say that the attire is casual.

The indoor pool is very comfortable and the outdoor pool is heated. The resort is lovely and the staff is super friendly. As far as restaurants go the Skipper is very good and the outdoor deck has great views. It is a walk up to the second floor to get the views though. Enjoy! I am going back in September. I love that area.

The Red jacket is at the end of the road so there's no traffic except for the car park. Never any noise apart from the ocean, although they do have a marquee (facing the water) for wedding receptions but they went back inside at a reasonable hour. Red Jacket beach is private to the hotel but make sure you book the one with the address shown as - 1 SOUTH SHORE DRIVE & enjoy 😊😊

"Go to another hotel."
"Each room has its own positives and negatives as well"
"I always request room 240. It's got great views for not being on the beach."
"Both the River and Ocean view rooms are great. River side would be quieter."
