On a recent exploratory trip to Provincetown, I booked a last minute deal directly off of the Carpe Diem website. Based on the description, Carpe Diem sounded like a perfect place to get away for a few days of R&R and it certinaly did not disappoint. The property was beautiful and the vibe upon arrival was extremely soothing and relaxing.... More

This place is awesome. The grounds are lovely and all of the interior spaces I saw were clean and classy. It's in a great spot as well, just off of Commercial Street. Everyone we interacted with was friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend staying here.

The rooms, staff and facility overall.. just amazing! Centrally located, plenty of parking and some beautiful shared space to get away. Pro tip: Do NOT miss the wine and cheese (and so many other things) hour.

I was with a large group for the weekend and the staff was welcoming and patient with us. Always friendly with an excellent breakfast and then cheese and win in the afternoon. Spa facilities were lovely as well! Hot tub and steam room were large considering how tight Provincetown is. Steps from good food and the beach too in season.

The environment was so nice! The staff was always trying to do more! They were delightful, funny and very accommodating! Rooms were nice, spa was nice, massage therapist were great (we had- Jen and Gavril). Best massage for both of us- in years!!!! They knew what they were doing, addressed issues, but never forgot what we asked for!!

I decided to go once i knew friends were going to p-town for Halloween weekend. The guesthouse was awesome! Breakfast was a great way to meet other people staying in town to see what others were doing and maybe plan a day out. The hosts stephen and paul were awesome and the staff pleasant and accommodating. Highly recommend!

Really enjoyed our short stay and appreciate the hard work going into Carpe Diem to make it even better. We've tried many places but none feel so well looked after, convenient as well as charming to all that Ptown has to offer.
