At the Windrift Hotel we had a whimsical experience! Why? We were there during the fourth of July! The Windrift makes every day special with its great eateries and bars and special events. Weather it is wing Wednesday or Karaoke time, it's all fine. The Windrift is right next to the dunes/beach and if we did not want to get... More

The location of this place is second-to-none - it's right on the beach. It has a great pool in the back with lots of seating. Several bars, food is good, service and staff mostly great. It has a definite coastal charm to it. The resort throws in beach passes (the city charges to use the beach!) and beach chairs and... More

Loved our stay at the Windrift Resort this past week. I stayed with 2 friends and kids and everyone had a great time! The room (#305) was spacious, 2 balconies and 2 bathrooms and everything was very modern and clean. We loved the beach proximity, beach loungers & umbrella service, the beautiful pool, and ate at the Level 2 restaurant... More

My family has been coming to the Windrift for almost 20 years now. After trying several different beaches and hotels, the Windrift always brings us back. With their newly renovated pool and rooms, we love it more than ever. Also, the restaurant is AMAZING, and the bar/deck area is a great nighttime go-to. We will continue coming to here for... More

Initial reservation mix-up, overall good experience Hotel is popular - busy weekend scene. Great amenities - restaurants, beach chairs and umbrellas, pool, bands. Jessica our poolside server was great - even though it was her first day!!! Room so clean and comfy. Morning noise annoying though.

Every time I read a positive review about this place, I am completely befuddled on how someone could see things so differently than I do. Perhaps one does not expect great service anymore, or just does not care about decent service. Please understand that I think the property and the layout are beautiful and wish that the service and food... More

I wrote a review back in June 2014 (My Paradise) when I stayed for a week. I was lucky enough to come down at the end of Aug. for my birthday weekend and tried to write another review but Trip Advisor said it was too soon after the first review so I had to wait a few months. I've been... More
