Q: I went to the Outdoor Pool and the door was locked. Is it closed?

A: The Town of Barnstable requires that hotel pools have a lifeguard on duty when open. When there are no guests at the Outdoor Pool for a prolonged period of time, they may rotate to the Indoor/Outdoor Water Park to assist the other lifeguards or perform maintenance procedures and will close the pool. If any guests would like to use the pool during this time they can simply tell the lifeguards at the Indoor/Outdoor Water Park or use the phone by the door to the Outdoor Pool to contact the Front Desk and we will happily send a lifeguard over to open it up.
