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!

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,...
