We drove down to the Sanderling Resort as we have for over 25 years, but this time we did not have a reservation. The weather was forecast as fantastic for March, so we drove to our favorite getaway. Ashley was so kind in helping us find a room and giving us that welcome hospitality that we love. Well done Ashley...

The room was beautiful and the sunsets from our deck were breathtaking. The staff was so friendly and helpful. I liked that you could purchase all the lovely items that are in your room. (Soaps, shampoo/conditioner, lotion, and most of all the ROBE!) I definitely will return next year after April 1st when more of the local shops and restaurants...

The Sanderling is every bit worth the hype. It's not at all pretentious and the staff was very genuine in greeting you and asking what you needed. The lobby and other sitting areas were so comfortable and with the view of the ocean (or sound depending on which side of the building you were on) made it ideal. I could...

We had a very enjoyable stay during the off season. The staff was so helpful and pleasant. We were upgraded to an oceanfront room that was beautiful. I enjoyed walking the beach in front of the property and walking around the premises. We were only there for one night so did not use pool or spa but they looked very...

My husband and I have stayed here twice. We had a great experience both times. The first stay we had our son, and the second was just us. The Sanderling is a great place for couples and families. They have an adults only pool, and separate one for families. The Sanderling is small enough to have a quaint feel, but...

This is a nice place. Our room was clean, the staff was friendly, and the setting was very good. Our visit was during a cold March weekend, so the beach didn't factor in at all. There was also a very nice beachfront patio with a gas fire pit which was very attractive, but again, it was too cold to use...

Thank you for being our guest. We are glad you were able to enjoy the comfort and coziness of the Resort. Please consider the South Inn or North Inn, both of which have elevators. Our bellman arrive on April 1st but during the off season we do have assistance as you found just by letting the front desk know. We...

Despite its years, Sanderling appears to still be the best of the best in the area. Lovely views, decent sized and well-lit rooms, efficient staff, nice (but not really nice) spa, very pretty restaurant, lots of parking and amenities such as outdoor hot tub, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis and much more. On the less than positive side, the indoor...

Beach House: We stayed in the main beach house with views of the ocean. We didn't get the room we were originally promised, but the place is so pretty it was okay. It's very warm and inviting! Bed & Bath: Bed was comfortable & the updated bathroom was great. Spa: We did the package as a couple. More about that...

First class service and a spectacular ocean front view. We will definitely make a return trip next year! It was too cold for the beach and the outdoor resort facilities but there are plenty of day trips within a short drive.

My husband surprised me with a quick getaway weekend without the kids. The "Heros" package provided discounts on the room, meals and spa services. The staff were so friendly and attentive. The smores kit in the room was such a nice treat to use in the giant fire pit outside. Our room was in the oceanside, and the sound of...
