Sat at the bar for dinner on a Friday night. Got a chicken caesar salad. The caesar salad part was delicious!! Great dressing, great greens, great accoutrements. The chicken was dry as hell. Next time I would order it with shrimp or just plain.

My wife and I just completed a four day stay at the Windrift and had a most wonderful time from arrival until our departure. Our Junior Suite was nicely decorated and very comfortable for the two of us. We are beach people and it was so convenient being so close to the beach. We enjoyed sitting on our balcony in... More

We spent the 4th of July Weekend at the Windrift. We have stayed here in the past and enjoyed it. This weekend - not surprisingly, it was very crowded with lots of action. The hotel has undergone a facelift and made very nice improvements to the entire property. They have a new zero entry pool with a hot tub, and... More

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.
