Booked a five night stay for the family in a studio. The beach is nice and the heated pool is too. The grounds are well taken care of and people working there are nice. BUT, 500$/night for a bare bones studio, is a bit much. Each room is owner owned and therefore some are renovated and some are not. Yet,... More

If you are visiting Amagansett strictly for location, which we basically do, this is the perfect place for the family. The view from units 44,43 and 42 up top simply cannot be beat. Other top units are beach front but the dunes are in the way of ocean view, still a perfect location in my opinion. The units are large... More

One of the worst "hotel properties" I have ever stayed in. I realize this was a "beach" property, but for $300 a night, it was ridiculous. I have stayed in better Motel 6 type properties. Many units are owned by individual investors who take better or worse care of their units. We stayed in unit 127 - avoid it. Front... More

We travel here at least 10 times during the summer. Not enough of course! Windward Shores is my favorites Dunes resort and I have used them for the past 15 years. The location is perfect! We enjoy the East Hamptons and Montauk and WS is right in-between both. We alo head to Sag Harbor as well. The rooms have a... More

First time in Long Island, first time in Montauk, first time in Windward Shores. We got this room at the very last minute (it was 5 pm and we were asking for sleeping there that night). Awesome room, the view was amazing and the receptionist really helpful. There's a pool, though the private beach is really a place you have... More

This was our first time staying at Windward Shores after 32+ years of traveling to Montauk and we were very pleasantly surprised. We requested two bedroom, ocean front/ocean view to accommodate our group of four. Reservations were easy and our needs were met. Our unit had the feel of apartment-style living. Downstairs has a private queen bedroom (minimal closet space)... More

Great location. You walk out your door through the dunes to the ocean. The two bedroom suite was spacious and slept everyone comfortably. The manager, Laurie, was so helpful and her staff- Amanda, Karen and Emma, were equally friendly, helpful and accommodating. Fantastic off season rates! Looking forward to visiting again in September, this time for girls weekend getaway! -Katherine

We had a newly renovated room, it was a studio & nice. Our friends stayed in a two bedroom unit that was VERY nice. The lower rooms have "dune view" so you don't really see or hear the ocean., but its a short walk away.

I have stayed here many times. If you want to get away to a sleepy village in the middle of Winter, then here you should go. Windward Shores is in Amagansett & borders Montauk. In February there is nothing to do but eat at John's Pancakes, shop at Go Local & relax. In the Summer this is a whole different... More

We recommended Windward Shores to our wedding guests, etc., and reservations were lost, double-charged, etc. Some guests advised of 2 night minimums, others were able to book a single night stay. The management were combative, disorganized and extraordinarily dishonest. GM Ken Kalafut lied to us on several points, making this a nightmare weekend. The topper: A group of our guests... More
