We loved our stay at the Sanderling. The hotel was lovely, welcoming and stylish and our room (ocean suite) perfect with a mezzanine bedroom/bathroom and sofa bed for children. Service friendly and efficient. Chairs were always set up at the beach when we needed them although towels should be closer to the beach. Pool lovely and not busy, as someone... More

My family has been coming to the Outer Banks for over forty years. We have stayed at the Sanderling from the beginning and through each change in management. We have always enjoyed ourselves, but we now see the need for several improvements. First, the rooms are showing their age, particularly the bathrooms. Renovation is in order, and I hope it... More

Sanderling was even better than expected. Beautiful room, ours was on the bay side. Grounds were amazing from the adult pool to fire pits and games, only steps from the beach. Great balconies to sit relax with a drink, everything you need is on property and staff was amazing and helpful with any need on resort or questions/arrangements off resort.... More

The two pools give you a nice option one is for families with small children and one is for adults. The beach is beautiful and they offer a variety of water sports, very comfortable chairs and umbrellas are provided.Beautiful... More

We just returned from a four night stay at the Sanderling Resort. We stayed in a king oceanview room on the second floor. We were pleased with our room -- the size was comfortable and the balcony adequate for two people. As many have stated, this resort sets a high bar for service, amenities, design, layout and cleanliness of the... More

Our family of four visited the Outer Banks in July 2014. After much research and reading many reviews, including Fodor's (not a Fodor's Choice), TripAdvisor and the Southern Living Hotel Collection, we decided to stay at the Sanderling Resort and Spa in Duck, North Carolina. We were a little concerned about their cancellation policy and the price point, so we... More

We just returned home from our sons wedding at the Sanderling. While the wedding was beautiful and so is the resort, unfortunately, some of the cleaning staff was not as beautiful. When we arrived and got our keys to the Griggs house, it looked great on the surface. We then tried to get into bed for a nap and found... More

We enjoyed having your families special time at the resort. We are glad your wedding party enjoyed the homes as part of the weekend celebration. We have done a thorough investigation of the claim and have not found this to be linked to our team. They do go into the home in pairs and in most instances towel exchange which... More

We, a family of 5 visited over Memorial Day. Hotel and facilities are of very high standard and very clean, service generally very friendly and good ( except our first morning's breakfast service which was excruciatingly low). Beach is beautiful. Firepits at night provide great entertainment for the kids. We had asked for a late check out on our last... More

Thank you for visiting with us over the holiday weekend. We are glad you could enjoy the beach and all the other amenities. Typically the water is warm enough by Memorial Day. Sorry for the slow breakfast service (and thank you for letting us know). We hope the family will join us again soon. More

We stayed here while on a whirlwind wedding venue tour earlier this summer. While we didn't ultimately choose Sanderling, it was a great place and we will definitely come back for a visit. Located in beautiful, laid-back Duck, Sanderling offers the best of the Sound and the Ocean. The beaches are beautiful and open, the grounds are comfortable and luxurious... More
