I recently had the good fortune to be invited to an event at the Cliffside Beach Club.Unfortunately, bad weather cut my stay down from two nights to just one, so this review is based on a very short stay, and will not include the many features/amenities I did not get the chance to experience. Overall, I had an excellent experience... More

Excellent hotel right on the beach with access to a pristine, private beach, multiple pools, a nice little bar and breakfast area and other facilities. There is a nice health club and you can arrange for a masseuse. The access to the galley kitchen is a nice feature as well, but this place is all about being right on the... More

My husband and I always stay at Cliffside once The White Elephant became so big and corporate. We love its friendly, laid back, family vibe. We love its beach location, gorgeous views and neighboring restaurant, The Galley.

It was a last minute reservation and it quickly became clear after our visit; we enjoyed this facility only because someone else was forced to cancel. Waking up to a gentle breeze and calm seas, watching the beach boys plugging umbrellas into the sand, warming our bones gently as the sun stretched its arms from one horizon to the other,... More

What a beautiful spot on the water with a lovely, attentive staff. It's easy to bike in to town if you don't have a car. Great sunsets on the beach and and access to the Galley Restaurant next-door.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Cliffside and look forward to going back. Amazing location, beautifully appointed and very friendly staff. We did have a repeated experience with a particular bar employee who very blatantly catered to the club members over the hotel guests and on a number of occasions almost made us feel unwelcome. Maybe she was just having a bad... More

Be prepared to spend a lot of money on your lodging but remember you are being given access to the exclusive Beach Club on one of Nantucket's best beaches with charming town in walking distance. The staff is welcoming and can arrange for your every need. Book early and stay for a long time if you can!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Close your eyes. Imagine the soft sounds of waves crashing, the fresh sea breeze in your face, and the feeling of warm sand in your toes. This is the ultimate relaxation that is found at Cliffside Beach Club. This unique combination of boutique hotel and private beach club, offers its guests a range of amenities that are rarely found at other resorts. The hotel sits on the beach just one mile from the center of Nantucket. This allows for our guests to be close enough to easily enjoy all of its shops, restaurants, and quaint cobblestone streets, while also being far enough away to luxuriate in the peace and quiet of an oceanfront room. The beautiful private beach offers guests something other hotel in Nantucket can offer, which in an intimate resort setting and such close proximity to a vibrant and historic town. Our guests have the freedom on how to start their day. Perhaps a morning workout at Nantucket’s finest gym in the best way to wake up or slowly waking up slowly under an ideally sheltered pool area before heading out to the beach for the afternoon. Enjoy a glass of wine or a cocktail at the private bar overlooking the beach or perhaps take your drink back to your own private deck and watch the sun set into the ocean right before your eyes. Understandably, many of our guests find it hard to leave the hotel and we can’t wait for you to experience Cliffside Beach Club. ... more   less

“We stayed in rooms 119 & 120 and they were perfect. I think any of the rooms along that side with an angled view of the water would be great. My husband and I stayed there several years ago and I think we were in 117 and it was a great location as well. The rooms in front facing the water are more expensive but I'm sure the view would be worth it!”
