Weekend get away

Posted Jun 19, 2014
We had a wonderful experience. The staff was very friendly and knowable about the history of the hotel. We ate at the life saving station and the food was wonderful. We strolled around the whole restaurant reading all the historical facts and looking at the pictures. We especially enjoyed sitting around the fire pit and talking with the other guests. We had drinks at the bar in the lobby and chatted with the staff. They even called the gift shop to stay open late so I could go purchase a long sleeved shirt as it was uncommonly cold when we were there.

Beautiful setting close to the beach and bay.

Posted May 23, 2014
Pros: Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was huge! We especially enjoyed listening to the ocean sounds from our balcony's comfortable chairs.
Cons: Nothing. Everything was perfect for us.
Location: We did not have time to explore the area, but plan to definitely make a return trip.
This hotel stay was very quiet and relaxing and our room was in a building that had nice areas to sit and visit with others. I especially enjoyed the free coffee available each morning. The resort staff was very friendly and helpful.

Not worth the money

Posted Mar 25, 2014
Pros: Outdoor hot tub.
Cons: All of the above mentioned. Also, bike rentals should be available for guests. Beautiful weather and when I asked she said down the street.
We paid an additional $80 per night to upgrade.(Oceanfront) The room did not have a couch, the refrigerator did not work. No microwave or coffee maker. I stayed there several years ago and there was no comparison. We went to use the fitness room and it was locked. The desk clerks key did not work, so we ended up waiting all most an hour for maintenance to come and unlock it. The most enjoyable part was dinner in their restaurant on our first night. Excellent service and ambiance. For the price, I would have expected much better accommodations. Off season rates too high, for the type of room.

Thank you for sharing your comments. We are sorry we did not meet your expectations. We do have a number of room types. All the rooms with Premium in front of them have a couch so an oceanview room with a sofa would be a Premium oceanview (we call oceanfront oceanview). We definitely would want to know the refrigerator was not working. Microwaves are available upon request. We apologize for the fitness center not being open and have corrected that procedure. Glad you enjoyed dinner. We hope you will give us another opportunity.

Beautiful resort; outstanding staff

Posted Mar 11, 2014
Father and son weekend outing during college spring break -- quick 2-night get-away to walk the beaches, explore, and relax. The Sanderling was impeccable, staff warm, friendly, and accommodating, and room and facility very clean and comfortable. Loved having fresh coffee available in lounge areas, and breakfasts were something to Pearce about--best grits!

Wonderful location with great amenities

Posted Mar 3, 2014
Beach is pristine and gorgeous, location is removed from the hubbub, but a short hop to great restaurants and nightlife. It is not necessary to leave the hotel which is a bonus in the height of the season when the traffic is a definite drawback. Restaurants, indoor and outdoor pools, lovely lounge areas and bar(s) make it a great retreat. The s'more package was a whimsical treat and, with the addition of the marshmallow wand, a perfect dessert to enjoy while sitting around one of the several fire pits that are lit nightly. The staff was extremely accommodating and service was provided with efficiency and the ever-present smile. We hated to leave, but look forward to a return visit.

Awesome stay

Everything was perfect. It was off season and not everything in Duck was open but we went knowing that. The Sanderling is a great place. I have already planned another stay.
