We ate dinner tonight at the windrift and the service was outstanding, after a long day and a couple of bad customer service experiences around town we ended our day at the windrift. Once we were seated we had really fast service with a very attentive waitress and the food was great! AWESOME service!!!

The Windrift has it all: beautifully decorated rooms, comfy beds, fantastic ocean views, good food, terrific bands, super friendly staff: all right on a long perfect beach! You never really need to leave here. I come back here every year with a group of close friends: we have tried many other beaches and resorts, but nothing comes close to The... More

We had lunch there with friends over the weekend and the panoramic view of the ocean coupled with very delectable food made for a relaxing lunch. The food and presentation was top notch and nobody was disappointed. A perfect place to go for lunch when you were at the beach.

This is a very nice hotel on a very nice beach. The pros: nice rooms, comfortable beds, several restaurants to pick from, great sushi, very nice staff. The cons: very expensive for what it is, no beach chairs or beach towels, restaurants are not capable of handling the volume (I.e., very long waits for food and drink,appetizers arrive after entrees,...

As six close friends living a distance apart from each other, we take 4 days each year at the beach to catch up and enjoy good times together. We have returned to the Windrift year after year. The views of the beach and ocean are beautiful. The rooms, the pool, the patio bar, and the beachfront restaurant are lovely. The... More

We've been going to the Windrift for over a decade. We appreciate the upgrades and the renovations but for the price (over $400 per night for a simple room with 2 beds) it is not worth it. Granted it's on the beach and has a pool, but in tough economic times the prices isn't justified. I called ahead to ensure... More

We just came back from a vacation at the Windrift. We had an excellent time. Everything is clean. The pool was great. The staff should be commended on excellent service. There is always live entertainment every night. Great getaway for both my daughter and my husband and me. The one thing I wish they had was a small gift shop.... More

What a disaster. I stayed at this hotel while attending a friends wedding. I WILL NEVER GO BACK. Deplorable customer service. The front desk staff was disorganized at best. Now 2 weeks later, they contact me and are trying to charge me for a beach tag that I turned in at checkout 2 WEEKS AGO. Which they say is now... More

I was very impressed with the staff at the hotel check in. I know that check in isn't till 3:00 but the staff gave me 2 beach tags at 11:00 so we could enjoy our day at the beach with friends. The room was very nice and clean. You must sit at the upstairs bar and have a drink overlooking... More

This hotel so consistently excellent. Every year we go down for a few days, in early June. Always a great time and everyone is so friendly. I wouldn't don't think of going anywhere else. We can't wait to go back, next season!
