Right on the ocean, nothing else like it!
Posted Sep 1, 2010
The Hampton Ocean Resort is an undiscovered gem. It's located right on the ocean sand, 20 steps to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The staff is warm and helpful; you don’t have to do a thing as they set you up on the beach with nice wood lounge chairs, thick beach towels, your own stocked cooler, and snacks, lunch, ices, fruit, etc.
This is a boutique hotel with only 17 rooms and cottages, and you feel a level of warmth and comfort that you won’t find at a larger facility. There’s a giant wood communal table overlooking the ocean, and you’ll share experiences like roasting marshmallows on the beach at night, kayaking on the bay, etc. It's a combination of a Caribbean island getaway and a 1950’s bungalow experience, with the amenities of modern and clean Hamptons-style rooms.
Hotel rates are high in the summer everywhere in the Hamptons because it’s a 9 week season, but there is no such thing in the Hamptons or Montauk as a 5-star hotel. If you need the Ritz and you’re expecting it because you’re paying a lot, you’re better off visiting Manhattan. But for the Hamptons, you get a very nice room with separate bedroom and living room, large decks, white hamptons furniture,and an attention to cleanliness and housekeeping that you’ll appreciate with all the sand and water that your family will be tracking around. It's all-inclusive so you don't need your wallet, it’s everything an oceanfront hotel is supposed to be, relaxing, fun, and you won't want to leave.
