Request for views are not even attempted to be met. As a first time using our points, we were very disappointed and would not return to this resort. The points used were not worth it at all.

I’ve had one-bedroom units in the Dunes building and studios in the Royal Coachman building (which is primarily studios and some 1 bedrooms). The Dunes building is not bay front, but the bay can be seen from some of the upper level units. The Royal Coachman building is I-shaped with the top of the I right on the beach with unobstructed views. The long middle section faces the outdoor pool and has some water views especially from the upper-floor units. And at the bottom of the I there are units that also face the outdoor pool, with a partial bay view, and units that face the dunes and the parking lot. Most of the Sandcastle units have balconies.
From the beachfront units, the view of the bay is glorious. It is wonderfully relaxing to sit on the balcony and look out at the water. At night you can see the lights from several different lighthouses, each with its particular identifying signal.
The studio units have a Murphy bed and sleeper sofa as well as a dining room table with chairs, a dresser, closet, full bath with tub, and one TV. The one-bedrooms have a living room that is nearly identical to a studio except with a full-kitchen, and a second room with the bathroom (same as a studio) and two double beds, and balconies off both the living room and bedroom.
Although the studio kitchens are small, I have no trouble preparing meals there. The refrigerators are a bit larger than a dorm refrigerator and the cooktop has two burners. The integrated fridge/cooktop is called a King Unit. There are also a toaster, microwave, and coffee maker, as well as the usual dishes and pots and pans. The resort provides dishwashing detergent, kitchen towels, and paper towels. I found the grocery store in Provincetown to be quite good. It's worthwhile to take a few minutes to fill out an application for a shopper's card so that you can get the store discounts for on-sale items.
Generally I have found the Sandcastle units to be in fair-to-good condition, and the resort is quick to send a repair person if you are in need of immediate help. Every day the housekeepers exchange towels and take away trash. The staff is friendly and helpful.
The resort has indoor (open all year) and outdoor pools (open only in season) and an indoor hot tub. On the second floor of the dunes building there is a rec room with table tennis, a large screen TV, and some arcade games. In the basement is a room where guests can store their bicycles.

The location is perfect for people who like to stay a little outside of the city center. It's on the Northern Line (tube), about 15 minutes away from Leicester Square and all the major attractions - couldn't be easier. To its left lies the leafy village of Hampstead filled with cafes, bookstores and vegetable stands. Behind it is the coveted Hampstead Heath - a rolling park of bike and running trails, hills and valleys, streams and swimming ponds. It's really great if you like to run - the extensive running paths are shady (for the summer heat)and soft on your shins and ankles. Belsize Park and Camden are also a stone's throw. There are a plethora of good restaurants and pubs and clubs around here too. As you can tell, I can't say enough good things.
