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

Good music, very casual scene for the end of the day, even better scene for the end of the weekend on Sunday nights. Wed night wing night offers great wing and beer specials. You're here more for the scene than anything else, so keep the view in mind when tasting the food. It's good, just nothing great.

What a wonderful place for fun, relaxation, entertainment, fabulous food and wide variety at that, and service was the best. You can't ask for a nicer group of people who cater to your every need with a smile. The pool was only steps away from the beach. I had a choice but preferred the pool. Met a couple of celebrities,... More

The staff here is helpful and friendly and we enjoyed the restaurant and proximity to the beach. The downsides: parking is a nightmare (almost none), room was dirty, and Saturdays are like spring break...loud music, loud obnoxious crowds at the pool. Not exactly family friendly. Also, would recommend verifying your balcony is not right over the restaurant because of the... More

We are a large family (32) and we go out later than most to eat. We showed up @ 9:22 on a Sunday eve; once we were seated we were told the kitchen closes at 9:30.... However they totally accommodated us and kept the kitchen open .... the food & drink was very good and the keyboardist was excellent. Thanks... More

Great rooms with a great view. Loved the outside pool and bar. Everyone is so nice. They can't do enough for you. We enjoyed our dinner, the food was outstanding! Our waitress Kate was so very pleasant and sweet. She provided such excellent service. This was our first time here and we are so glad we chose the Wind Drift.... More

Worst Experience EVER! Thirty years ago, my wife and I arrived in Atlantic City for our honeymoon only to find out that our Resorts hotel room reservation had fallen through and we found ourselves without a room at midnight. My new bride was so distraught and crying, I had to rectify the situation ASAP. We headed back up the parkway... More

Beware the pool and the riff raff that hangs out despite the guests only signs. Children everywhere completely unsupervised make this a hit or miss feature of the hotel. Do not rely in staff to be very helpful in addressing poor behavior of these uninvited guests even if you are paying peak season prices. Food is ok. The mostly college... More

We are regulars at the Windrift. We enjoy it so much we occasionally bring different groups of friends and family with us. Well let me share, everyone likes the Windrift now just as much as we do. Compliments to the chef and the staff as well. Everyone is always so very accommodating and eager to please. Can't wait to return!
