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!

I am in Avalon from July 7 through July 12. This evening (July 8) I went to the Windrift with five adults and an 8 year old to have dinner. We arrived at 5:45 pm and was greeted at the entrace to the facility by a door man who promptly informed me that starting at 4pm on Tuesdays they charge... More

Stayed at the Windrift last year and unfortunately the beach was closed. This year, we splurged on a ocean- front suite for five nites. I cannot say enough positive comments about our experience. The suite - although pricey - was beautiful. It looked exactly like the pictures on the website. The place runs like a well- oiled machine. On Wednesday... More

The Windrift looks fantastic! We have been vacationing in the area for many years and have enjoyed the Windrift over those years. A recent visit left us with a less than an enjoyable memory. They really need to either train their young workers better or hire employees with much more experience. The inept service that we received while just trying... More
